As you may know George won 3 months supply of James Wellbeloved kibble. It finally arrived today... all 23kg of it!!!!! I wasn't planning to feed George it but as he has gone off his NI I was wondering if it is a reasonable subsitute if he likes it. thanks

I've never tried it but it's amazing how people's opinions can differ. The trainer who I used with Rufus said that if ever she had a hyper active puppy in her classes she could almost guarantee it was being fed James Wellbeloved! I did find her very opinionated though and have gone to different trainers with Basil. I guess if you give it a try you know George well enough to know whether it suits him or not.

Maggie eats James well beloved and we have no probs. She is a happy healthy pup. However there is an American cocker at puppy class and it gave him really bad wind. I think to a certain extent it depends ob the dog how they get on with food. Are u sure george isn't just teething? Maggie went right off her food for ages while teething and is only now eating all her breakfast and dinner again. She is 6.5 months now. Emma x

Every dog, animal and person is different!
My pup struggled with bad belly as she grew through her puppy food but has settled really well on JWB.
But as previously mentioned, I too am a soft touch and add natures dirt meat lol

thanks everyone, I think I will keep persevering with NI as I really like the ethos of it plus no smelly poos are great. Will add a little of the James Wellbeloved as training treats I think. There is loads of it, may donate some too

Betty came from the breeder on JWB - she didn't care for it much and
had runny poo's. I understand that JWB is made in the same factory
as Wainwrights ( pets at home's own brand) so it may possibly cheaper for
the same thing...

I heard that the recipe had changed and the brand wasn't as good as it used to be - but all dogs like different things - maybe mix it with his wet food - he might renew his appetite - but like Emma above - Dexter went right off his food whilst teething and had a runny tummy - like babies i spose - but now hes right back on his burns & a bit of wet food at night (he loves his dinner)!!!!! :)

Freddy has Wainwrights. He came from breeder with,erm, I think it was something like Beta? Anyway, the vet recommended Royal Canin (their own make obviously - very expensive) we tried that for a while but it made his poos very runny and unpleasant and he had terrible wind. Wainwrights seem to be the right one for him. Back to solid poos, no wind and a variety of flavours (duck being his favourite). I also sometimes give him a little wet mix added to his dry for a bit of variety. Or if he's really lucky, on a roast dinner day, he gets some roast meat! Now winter is on its way, he won't believe his luck!!
