Also remember dogs that are fed a high quality diet don't require as much volume of food. (Quality replaces Quantity). You won't need as much food so that off sets some of the cost.

Default Thanks!!

Thanks so much!! We're getting low on the last of the Iams that I have left so I'm going to try them on Canidae. I'm going to look to see if PetCo carries it, they're really close to my house and have that program that the 13th bag is free.

It doesn't sound like Canidae is much more than Iams so that won't be a problem. I wouldn't have an issue spending more than what I do on Iams I just can't spend tons more.

Do you go to the Pet Supplies Plus in Aurora on Farnsworth? If yes, I think we probably live pretty close to each other, I'm on the west side of Aurora.

That food in the silver bag was imported from some country so that's why it was SO expensive, but I could see a huge difference in my dogs.

My dogs are all around 60 pounds and currently get 1 cup in the a.m. and 1 cup in the p.m. so it doesn't sound like their intake will be any different but as long as it's better for them that's all I care.

Thanks!!!!

Sensible Choice, is kind of cheap, and it is great! I mean, it is the same price as Iams, for a 20 lb. But, yes, Canidae is a great food I have heard! And it lasts longer!

Canidae isn't sold at Petco. Petco carries Solid Gold, Natural Balance, and Castor & Pollux.

I would look for a bakery, feed, or specialty store in your area to find it.

Castor & Pollux is a very good food also but maybe a bit pricey. Very tasty to dogs.

What do you feed your dogs? Since I have large dogs with Iams I would buy the large bread food - does it matter with these other foods? Do they have something different in them if they're large bread?

Also, does anyone know if Pet Supplies Plus offers a food program? Like Petco does buy 12 get the 13th free?

Also I have an old pet food container when we used to order from a pet food company that delivered. Mine have figured out how to chew the top off. Do you have any recomendations for a dog proof dry food container? My house isn't really large enough to keep it up or store it somewhere else.

Any recemonds on the following:

How to make dogs stop digging in the yard? They will dig anywhere and even through cement. I've tried pepper and they just pick a new place to dig and/or the pepper doesn't fase them.

How to get a dog to stop eatting dog poop? Maybe that's because they're on Iams but my youngest is the only one who does it (and I did have her checked for worms and she didn't have any) but since we get fosters I don't want her to catch anything.

Last one - sorry, any way to keep them out of the cat box without putting up a gate and or shutting the cat in a room they can't get into? I'm tired of the cat litter all over the house and my son isn't willing to give up his cat
