What dry dog food do you use?

DDog is a 4.5 year old lab and has been on Royal Canin. He's gone off of it so am looking to swap.

Can't do raw so it will be dry.

What would you all recommend? Like the look of Lily's Kitchen but its pricey. Also looking at Wainwrights and James Wellbeloved.

Have you used allaboutdogfood.co.uk? It will give you an idea of brands, quality and price.

I don't feed kibble any more as my dog finds it hard to digest. When I did I used millieswolfheart but now I just buy a small bag of kibble from forthglade as I throw in a couple of nuggets to give a bit of crunch to his wet food.

My lurcher normally has Dr John working dog food with a tablespoon of wet food and either gravy or a splash of sunflower oil. He also gets the plate scrapings if we've had something doggy-digestible. At the moment he is enjoying Lidl's Orlando multibites as the pet shop was shut when he needed more Dr John, and he's not only gobbling the lot and thriving, but it's also considerably cheaper.

Try mixing 1/5-1/4 tin of Lily's Kitchen/Nature's Menu (or any other tin/pouch food) through the RC, doesn't need to be much - just enough to change the flavour and add a different texture/mouthfeel. Change the variety/brand of the added wet food - it's very easy to add some variety to a basic all-in-one kibble.

We give our 5 year old lab half a pouch of nature diet chicken wet food with a handful of Lily's kitchen lamb dried, she really loves it but she's a lab, loves her food.

We use Tails. He came to us already on it and we decided against making changes.

My dog has a mix of dry food and Lily’s kitchen wet food
Have tried different brands of dried food but she does enjoy Tails and eats it as soon as it is put down for her

Burns chicken and rice, been on it for 12 years! Slightly sensitive stomach, we never give her people food apart from a bit of roast chicken or beef and gravy.

Skinners Field and Trial is almost identical in composition to James Wellbeloved but a lot cheaper. Just something to consider if you want to go with that.

Personally I'd go for a higher protein food such as Millie's Wolfheart as you have to feed less - therefore a bag may cost more but it works out cheaper per meal.

I feed raw, but if we are ever away with the dogs (or they go to the dog-sitters) we give them Gentle kibble. It's the next best thing to raw.
