    well its hit or miss really with bullies that why i say maybe try the singles first then go to the others to try it. the singles have a single grain oats and are limited ingredient. but grassland and pacifica are good foods. my boston was on grasslands and is now on lamb and apple.

    Is 25% protein a good amount for a growing puppy?

    I was also thinking I could test her with treats that are lamb and salmon based first and see which she likes better? Good idea?

    I feed mine Fromms Beef Fritata now, but we switched 4 times before we got it right. They are both doing well on this food, so will stick it out. Dozer has a cast iron stomach, and no sensitivity problems so far, so can really eat any of the foods, we were on Royal Canin, and switched, to Go Natural, gave them diarrhea, switched back to Royal, then to Fromms Puppy Gold, again not good for Blossom, she has a lot of sensitivity if not allergies, she had loose stools, pink ears, pink chin, and around mouth, and red teary eyes. I switched them to the Fromms Beef Fritata, and its been 2 weeks, and they are both doing well on this food. Their stools were a little soft/mushy for a couple of days, now they are normal. Blossom no longer has any pinkness, or red goopy eyes, plus I think they are pooping less, and it doesn't smell as bad as before. Of course it still smells, it's poop after all. Lol

    I switched Bobby to Acana Pacifica a week ago and he loves it. He was on Fromm Gold Puppy before and was doing pretty well also. I basically only chose Acana because it had good reviews and it was Canadian

    Most stores over here (Montreal) have a policy that if your dog doesn't do well with a brand, you can return the bag if it is still 3/4 full.

    My Mabel has a bag of it and I gave her some one day and wow she loved it, I was planning on changing her from LID Natures Balance duck and potato because she has very red skin and eyes from most all dog foods and LID shows me better results out of any. I got nervous about the food not doing what I wanted it to and went back to the LID. Bag is still sitting there lol. Our store here would like for you to keep the dog food for 7 days and you can bring back and exchange or get money back if you have your receipt, I love that!

    I am going to pet store in a little bit and check it out if they have it. When I was their a few days ago ( lol I am always their) I didn't see that but am gonna check it out. Right now the bag I have is the Acana pacifica. She is too young for allergy testing so LID natural balance is what I have been satisfied with so far as far as her face only being pink instead of a glowing red ball and eyes but always willing to check out another LID. Thanks for the advice

    lol I just come back from the pet store and the clerk told me they didn't have a LID in acana but didn't really take notice of the part of duck and pear in your comment so naturally I will be back at the store tomorrow hahhaha. He kept telling me their was no LID in acana and I was like YES there is hahaha so tomorrow I will be back again, too funny. How funny but I still got another sippy bottle for my dogs while there. I love those things and my girls do so well with them.
