    Default Prices on dog food

    So, like most knows I "home cook" for Nyala. Because of a food business I own and not home much I decided to get a bag of dog food and leave some at my sons so when she's babysat they always have something to feed her. I went to check out Fromm like 96.99 $ a bag???? Acana classic or Regional 98.99 $ a bag???

    Did I miss something in 8 months of cooking?

    Nope, that is what I pay for Adult Orijen, the Canadian version, and I will pay that as long as I can get the Canadian version, till they force me to get the USA formulation, which is slightly different, and I am apprehensive, as some have been some adversities to the US Kitchen made version.


    Thanks and much Love,

    Yeah it is pricey but you also generally use less so it would last longer. With Harlea a 26lb lasts her 3 months and we pay $78 a bag so $26 a month isn't that bad if you ask me. Of course everyone's pups are different so it may last longer or shorter or others.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    It's not just dog food...human food as well...INSANITY!

    Important to eat wholesome & real food (not prepackaged) but if chronically ill,
    it is a must! I'm on disability only, so difficult trying to eat healthy and feed Cami
    healthy diet as well. I must watch every penny to do so, after much research I
    feed my bulldogs grain free TOTW (Taste of the Wild), costs about $55/28 llbs
    I switch out meals with meat, beef or turkey a couple x weekly.

    There is real hunger happening in America


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    It's everywhere Carol. Some of our schools too. Use to give my lunch to kids so they can have a proper meal for the day. But dog food has rocket for sure. To cook for nyala is about 100 $ a month. In my case its time. I should be ok by xmas then I wont have to travel on weekends for the market. Even then if I stop the turkey meals she is still getting the cook liver, heart and all that yucky insinde of organs topped on her meals. I add the broth, turmic and ginger. Maybe why she's full of energy lolll.

    So true. What is crazy around here is the store I buy from is $78 and the one up the road is $86 and then another store in the opposite direction is $112 for the same food.

    I use a Canadian made food ( way cheeper versus US food due to dollar exchange ) the company is Petcurean , the specific food I use is GO fit and free , chicken turkey + trout recipe grain free . Now do not forget I feed five dogs here also , I needed a Bulldog food that would fit for the rest of them and there nutrition requirements . I also used the brand for Rosie,s puppy food and switched her to this once of age .
    Rosie and others love it no issues whatsoever , I pay $76.00 CDN a 25lb or 11.3 kg per bag and purchase 2 bags at a time , I get almost 3 weeks out of that purchase .
    YOU MIGHT BE A BULLDOG IF...

    ...everyone else in a room with you is pinching their noses
    ...you snore like a chain saw.
    ...it takes too much energy to beg
    ...your snore is louder than your bark
    ...you have never seen your tail...what is a tail anyways?
    ...you're the loudest snorer in the house.

    Who sells it? Orijen or Acana are owned by Champion and founded here in Alberta. When I was living in Montreal I would pay the biggest bag 68.00 moved to Alberta 78.00! Now same orijen bag 98$. You wou think would be cheaper where its founded. Ha! And yet I travel often throughout Canada and I would ha8ve to say Alberta is the most expensive province. Worked in White Rock BC very expensive place and still cheaper in food (not houses). Alberta is a spoil yuppy place cause of their oil/patch but now the world is buying elsewhere AB is sure feeling it. Ok that was your economy class of the day hahah.

    Wow that is high! I love the food I have my girls on, it's just Southern States brand of naturals (no dyes, preservatives, corn/wheat/gluten) and it's the lamb and rice. It's $36 for a 40lb bag. They sell a completely grain free line too for a bit more but because Biscuit does so amazing on this I'm not switching her. One bag last me about a month feeding 2 dogs 2cups a day. I'd love to home cook for them but I just don't have the time, I barely find time to cook dinners and meal prep for myself for work.
