HI just can anyone help. I have a ten week old puppy, Pip (who is healthy and happy) he is currently on Wagg dry food. I have been told that it is not the best for his breed. Can anyone recommend the best food for him. Thanks Val

Hi Val and Pip,

Welcome to the forum x

You'll quickly find that you have entered a "raw" food zone ! LOL

You will get lots of advise on here - try searching "BARF" which is the purest form of feeding "raw" - then try searching threads on "Orijen" (which we would certainly recommend) and then try "Natural Instinct" otherwise known as NI on here.

Hi Val. There are many different opinions on feeding and everyone chooses a type of food that they are comfortable with, but in general most would agree that one with as few artificial ingredients and additives is desirable, ideally grain-free. As Jukee Doodles posted above, a lot of us on this forum are commited to a natural diet (and more joining us every day!) and you will find a lot of recent threads about this. At the moment there seem to be three favourites emerging - Orijen for a dry kibble, Nature Diet for a wet food and Natural Instinct (NI) for a complete raw BARF diet. Of course there are many people on the forum feeding other products that they are happy with, including other types of home-made BARF diets.
There is also a website that grades dog foods with a star rating, but not all UK brands are listed.

You will need to make a decision based around your own preferences, but we are all happy to assist with any queries you might have.

I have to put in a good word for nature diet. I put Dexter on it at ten weeks. It is popular with fussy eaters who dont like crunchy dry food.

I'd second that - it is a good option for those who don't want to go raw and is really good quality.

Hi
We had our Eddie on Wagg, but have now moved him onto Wainwrights complete wet from Pets at home as he stopped eating Wagg. Although this isn't raw food, it is a more natural diet i.e. no cereal, additives etc and Eddie definitely prefers to eat a wet food.

If we had a chest freezer then we would probably go for the BARF diet and may still do so eventually, but for now he is enjoying Wainwrights and we're just glad he is eating his food and not scavenging everyone elses!
