    We tried our old boy on it about 5 years ago and it didn't suit him at all..but he dose have a very sensitive stomach..my pup is weighed every 2 weeks and her food is weighed..i take her training treats from the weighed amount and i also use a few fish 4dogs treats..her food is put down..she is made to wait..give paw..what ever other time waster things I can think of to make her work abit then.she is told good girl..she get 20mins and if she hasn't touched it its gets taken up..i don't free feed I'm afraid..this method usually works for picky dogs..she isn't picky though..just bored..she has had the same food day in day out for 5months so who can.blame her ?

    I fed her the right quantity and gave her enough variety but even on complete brands of raw she did not fill up were as my cocker would get full now she is on wet/dry that seems better for her I am most definately not saying that its best but I do believe their are a lot of myths about raw which are believed as fact and also large number of dog owners form poor feeding habbits on raw and are happy to make asumptions based on their single experience.

    The same is with wet/dry feeders owners just fail to make informed decisions because the information available on the topic is miss guided. I do think its safer feeding wet or dry as long as you have gone for a good quality food.

    I find cheap raw is too high in water in blood or in bone or use some kind of cheaper meat to fill out their product because they know most owners wont even look on the ingrediants just go by what family and friends say.

    It's hard to say which is the best as everyone has their opinion. We have a 15year old Lab who has thrived on Natural Dog Food Company for years. She came with Pedigree tins etc from the Breeder which shows they don't always know best!! Once we read the ingredients we switched straight away.

    Raw was not an option for us as it passed straight through and she turned her nose up at some, getting everything balanced was also difficult.

    Each to their own. However, it we can all agree that most dog food brands, especially the larger (profit driven) ones that advertise as natural are just rubbish! Look at the ingredients.

    Yes there are lots of dog food that in my opinion isn't fit for sale.. That is the same with treats.. We have a natural dog treat website that sells all natural treats made with human grade ingredients
