Dekka and crew often will get little tidbits of Mc Donalds stuff. And no one could EVER accuse any of my dogs as being fat . As Boston said if its occasional then its fine. Its all about balance. The odd junky treat (as long as its not got chocolate, raisins, onions etc etc) is not going to hurt. If its an every day occurrence then you have an issue.

I like orijen too. But am feeding raw.

ok, so some table scraps are OK. Now anyone have any input on how I can make sure the 3 guys (yes I live with my b/f and his two friends, oh the joys! lol) I live with dont feed him all the time? Or should I just not tell them they can give him table scraps and leave the giving him scraps up to me?

And I found a place that sells Orijen really close to me, so I think when this bag of food is almost gone I will go and pick up a bag of it.

Ashelee - make sure you're also looking out for your dogs dental health. Depending what a dog eats, their oral hygiene can be affected. You should try Bright Bites for your dog to maintain teeth cleanliness and breath freshness in between dentist trips.

I'm almost positive when I looked on a Blue Buffalo label it had wheat gluten. I'm probably mixing it up with another food, though.

Of course, I wouldn't call it TEH BEST, but it's definitely good quality. Just ridonculously expensive.

ya, I take good care of his teeth. I brush his teeth every other day. Can't give him greenies or anything like that, he chews on them for a little while and then I guess gets bored with them?, and tries to swallow the whole thing (yes I watch him with it, and never leave things for him while I can not physically watch him, but still).

Brights Bites are these new dental doggy treats. They come in three star shaped sizes to help you keep your dogs breath fresh and fight plaque and tartar - I think they are pretty neat:

Excellent list Linds!

I can't think of any other brands worth mentioning...
