Nico eats the Nutrisource Heartland Select grain free and does really, really well on it. Before that he was only able to tolerate Natural Balance sweet potato and venison. I tried him on several different foods and NONE of them sat very well on his system.

Saga eats anything that is chicken, turkey or red meat (other than lamb) free. She gets whatever meets her and my standards. Usually it is one of the Merrick foods.

Everything.

I'll feed anything I can get from work, as long as it's decent quality. I usually stick with grain free but not always. We rotate between a ton of different brands and flavors, and they get a dry/wet/raw/freeze dried mixture. Right now they're on Fromm dry, Natural Balance canned, Natures Variety raw, and Stella & Chewys freeze dried.

They like it, they do well on it, and it works!

A little of this, a little of that.

Squash and Maisy are primarily on raw. Sometimes pre-made, sometimes not. Closest to PMR but I will add veggies or eggs or some sardines or this or that. They also get some (of Pip's) kibble, some canned, and some dehydrated raw. Depending on what is thawed and how lazy I am feeling on any given day.

Pip is on Wellness Core Reduced Fat, because I let him get fat last fall/winter. His weight is actually down where I want it now, but I'm probably going to maintain him on it indefinitely. (And he's delighted to get bigger portions.) He actually does terrible if he gets more than a few bites of raw per meal, very pukey and refuses to eat.

We are on a rotation of Earthborn Holistics GF, 4Health GF, and Acana GF (though I haven't fed Acana in quite a while). I'm not picky about proteins... nobody is allergic to anything, so they get whatever I think they will like. We normally go with a prairie or seafood though.

In the past, we've fed Nutrisource GF, TOTW GF, Wellness CORE, Canidae GF, Merrick GF, Diamond Naturals when Harlow was a year or so and some Kirkland brand when we were living with that couple in CO.

Nutrisource, TOTW, Merrick, and the Kirkland brand food all gave Harlow UTI's, so those are all out. Wellness CORE is pretty pricey around here, as is Canidae. I really like how they do on Earthborn. 4Health is meh, but they do well on it and it's pretty inexpensive. They do GREAT on Acana, but we can only afford the Prarielands bag and even that stretches the dog food budget a little bit. When the foster leaves, we will probably feed it again for rotations.

I would LOVE to feed raw, but I was pretty sure my dogs were going to die last time I tried so I'm kind of nervous to give it a shot again. I would also love to give Go! a try, as Seal seemed to do pretty well on it.

Living in Fr,choice is not great.
Both dogs are on Royal Canin(large breeds) which is considered,here,as one of the top brand,with Pro Plan,Hills,etc.
Tania is doing great,on it but not Gaia as she has soft poop.
Considering changing to rawfeed unless I can find Acana,at an affordable price.

Little bit of everything here.

Acana is his kibble usually, though we rotate flavours. He also gets Now sometimes, it's similarly priced.

Sometimes he get the kibble on its own, sometimes I mix in some wet food or freeze dried raw. He also gets raw animal parts on a semi-regular basis as snacks. He gets supplements here and there too - mostly fish oil in the winter and dental enzymes when he's fed from a bowl.
