I do understand and appreciate your concern with the over population of these dogs. However, i am far from ignorant to the breed or incapable of learning more. I have thouroughly read the posts on raw feeding and was just attempting to get meal by meal ingredients from different ppl to see what direction id like to go in IF i decided to feed raw. This was an akc breeding(not ukc) done strictly to preserve a certain line and all offspring will not be kept and not shipped off like toys. I only asked the question because i know raw is more nutrious and natural. Thank u foryour input though
I was merely suggesting that you feed one or the other.....I wasn't accusing you of doing so but some people do feed kibble and raw together. However, most have issues feeding that way. The link I provided you is used on yahoo raw chat groups I'm on as well as a dog food forum I frequent so it's good info. And yes, a RAW diet is far more nutritious and more biologically appropriate than a bag a dried kibble and my dog is thriving on it.
AKC breeding you say? Do you show your dog? What bloodlines is she? I'm not a fan of the AKC at all. They just breed pretty dogs with no working ability or function. Very few AKC dogs today can do the jobs that they were once bred to do. Take the GSD
for instance which I've grown up with all my life......The AKC bred American dogs can barely walk with their slouched rear end. They could never function as a working dog on a ranch or on a police force like a German bred working GSD
can. I grew up with the working GSD
's that were K9 dogs. Just saying LOL!
Good luck with your girl if you choose to put her on a RAW diet. Let us know how she does
