I used to use it for all of my dogs but after reading the hundred and hundreds of complaints about dogs dying from it I quit. There are MUCH better foods for the price. Nutro is high and not even grain free :/

I feed Athena a mixture of Large breed Orijen and Lotus puppy food. The vet said that it is a good idea to give them some large breed food to insure that their bones slowly grow so they can develop properly. I would mix regular Orijen puppy with large breed but she does not like it.

Yeah.... this breed is NOT a large breed..... but yeah. I personally feed Acana Regionals Wild Prairie. I pay $62 for a 28lb bag and because of the higher nutritional value k can feed less. The feed store I get mine from keeps track of when I buy my bags and I always go in once a month on payday. :p so in short I go thru one bag a month for 2 dogs. Lol. Great food, shiny coats, happy dogs, and less poop!

Same here except I use Acana regionals ranchlands. Still, less food, less poop, great coats. Also, most places participate in a program where you get a free bag after buying 12.

I feed mine Taste of the Wild High Prairie puppy formula. It's grain free and the first three ingredients are good. I pay $25 for a 15lb bag from Tractor Supply. I have fed my dogs that for years and haven't heard anything bad so far.
