If money is no object what is the best dry food to give to your pups/dogs?
Something that is healthy, has the best nutrients and the best quality ingredients.

My 2 started on Royal Canin, and are both now on James Wellbeloved. Both of these get positive reviews from various dog forums.

Barking Heads is very good but pricey.

My two cavaliers are both on James Wellbeloved after trying other various others. They are on the Light version of it as they are both rather rotund!

JWB though we have changed as we can't afford to feed 2 dogs on it, we now buy chudleys or wainwrights.

Vets kitchen - about 26 quid a month average - very often on special offer on Ocado.

It's low grain (salmon) so if dog is elderly or has epilepsy it's perfect. There are lots of anti grain articles on the Internet.

Barking heads.

I had no idea the horrors of bakers and pedigree chum about 2 years ago until I got a dog trainer who explained it all. She introduced me to a local company who are amazing at providing high quality pet foods - the difference in our dogs you will not believe!

Their coats are so soft, behaviour is better, poo much less, the vet always comments about their weight being prefect and our 1 dog has epilepsy that wasn't happening often enough to start him on the medication but he was fitting 1-2 ever few months (once they start the mess they have to be on them forever).

Since his new food he hasn't fitted once - this is apparently common and something the shop owners have heard a lot! I just feel so bad I didn't know before! We only buy from them now - all of our treats. Wet and dry food and when you break it down it's actually cheaper. When you are adding it to your Tesco shop it seems cheaper as u might not notice but we order around £80 worth which will last 2 months for 2 dogs - that's around 60p per day for each dog for dry, wet and treats.

'Burns' here. I have a dog who is very sensitive to additives. Since putting him on Burns a few months ago, I've noticed a marked difference in his behaviour. He's gone from being hyperactive and jumping up knocking peopulling on the lead to calm and happy enough to let my eight-year-old sister walk him.

*knocking people over, pulling on the lead

Orijen, Acana, Eden, Millie's Wolfheart, Canagan.

Our lot are on Acana Pacifica (except the geriatric one who can't cope with dry food any more), they love it and look absolutely superb.

I'd always go for grain free and a high meat content.

Orijen is fantastic. We never buy anything else.

Our dog is on Burns but I'm about to change her to Eden as it's grain free and has been getting great reviews, if I could afford it Orijen no actually if I could afford it it would be Nutriment, raw in nice convenient packages.

Barking heads is a really good dry food. It's made of all natural ingredients that can be named including oils. Unlike other brands.
