Default Anyone heard of Dr. Tim's food?

I'm bored today, and came across a thread on another forum about this food: http://drtims.com/

It seems pretty decent from my skimming through the website.

Wilson eats almost all kibble now, minus a couple days a week where he gets a turkey neck or chicken quarter for the teeth cleaning benefits. He just never did that great on raw, was always puking; actually, yesterday AM he got a turkey neck, kibble for dinner, and this AM I got to clean up 2 piles of bile/bone puke.

So anyway, I've had him on a few different brands and he does fine on all of them. I'm always looking for other stuff to try because I do like rotating foods. The Momentum formula at 588 cal/cup is tempting for me, although it's not grain free. You can get it in 44lb. bags though, which is also nice.

Just wanted to see if anyone had ever heard of it, or fed it!

I'm trying the Pursuit. We started it last night and it didn't go over too well. Ronon snubbed it, Keenan picked out the Native and Jack spit it out. They did eat it this morning with broth from the beef roast I made yesterday. I have a 44lb bag and they are going to finish it! So I'll update when I know more. I was hoping it would be all they claimed it to be.

(Note- these are not picky dogs, this is the first food Ronon has ever snubbed).

Hmm, interesting! Maybe something in it smells funny to them? Wilson would probably eat mulch if I fed it to him, so I'm not too concerned about that.

Buddy would too, he even ate the bad batch of natures variety I had that went bad (not rancid persay but it just had an "off" smell about it) Josefina couldn't touch it so I just thought she was being naughty) but when I tried to feed it to my folks other dog who also would eat anything & she didn't that's when I knew something was wrong lol & pulled them off it imediately & notified the company.

Right now I am feeding B2B pork & they love it, but if they don't the place I bought it from will let me exchange it for something else or refund my money of they don't like it.

Probably is the smell. I'm the weirdo that likes to smell dog food and it doesn't smell good to me either. Not bad like rancid or anything, just not good smelling like Fromm, Acana, Earthborn, etc.

But Native doesn't smell that great to me either and they gobble it up.

Fromm smells nasty.

That's all.

I like the smell of Fromm. Even their classic- it smells like cheese!

My dogs went nuts over the Fromm Surf and Turf and Beef Fritatta. But my dogs never have firm poop on any of the from grain free lines.

Casper and Pongo are eating NOW Large breed Senior and it smells a little funky, but they are doing great on it!

Well I'm off to torture my dogs with more Dr. Tims!

I always loved the smell of Orijen.. never smelled like dog food to me LOL. I've never fed Fromm so can't comment there

I might try some just to see what Wilson thinks. I've also been toying with the idea of adding in some kibble to Piper & Sako's diet as well. Sako drives me nuts with his "I don't want to eat bone in meals" crap.

Well Ronon and Keenan ate it fine tonight. Jack still isn't eating it though. He picked at it, but doesn't want to eat it. Keenan finished Jack's bowl though! Growing puppies need lots of food!
