Some people like to make their own dog food, some give their dogs a raw food diet, and some feed their dogs with ready-made purchased food specifically intended for consumption by dogs. 

Which kind of dog food do you find works best for your dog?

sy loves benniful wet food. I can't get her to eat carrots or any veggies unless its been cooked like benniful.

Our dog has high protein needs, so we've been feeding him the Blue Buffalo Wilderness dog food. It's also a grain free formula.

I have a small puppy and he loves the treats from pedigree! I love him so much! I got him as a Christmas gift! He is my man! lol

Have you guys ever tried treats for dogs? I have and they taste really good lol I have to admit that they do some really good food for dogs ol

lol hello kiddo! that's funny! I've never tried before but if they like them I guess we would like them as well don't you think? lol

Both of my kids and also all three of my nieces used to like to get a hold of the dog food when they were little but I don't think I've ever myself eaten a dog treat.

I feed my dogs mainly dry food. Once a week wet food mixed with dry..

When I met my partner, his 3 dogs were already age 6+... He said he just feeds them dry food and only wet food occasionally. I just followed with the routine.

After searching online, I've decided to increase their wet food intake. It seems to be working fine.

dog food use to be something i didnt really think much about but now i have a new little puppy to feed. found him some good food at the dollar tree this week

I cook for my dogs. 100% of their diet comes from my kitchen. I've researched and I know what they shouldn't eat. I am as careful about their diet as I am about anyone else in the family. They seem to like it.

My largest dog (over 100 lbs) eats anything and everything you put in front of him. He is no problem at all to feed.

The smaller dog (around 20 lbs) is very picky, even with grass-fed meat. She is a rescue dog and was very skinny when I first got her. You could see her ribs. The pound was going to put her down as she would not eat for them. I had to hand-feed her for months. She slowly started gaining weight, but man I have never in my life seen a pickier dog. She refuses to eat left-overs. Her food cannot touch, which means that stews are out for her. She loves cheese, but you cannot put it on the same plate as her meat. I could go on. I have tried to mend her ways (I've had her a little over a year), but she will simply stop eating until I give in.

I been giving my dogs grain free for a long time. I want to give them the best. been reading a lot about homemade dog food. I was wondering if anyone does do this.

I make my own dog food as my dogs will not eat any types of dog food One is 14 years old and little and just never would eat it and my 2 1/2 year old will not eat it as she was very sick when she was a puppy and had to be fed what ever I could get down her. So now she will not eat ANY dog food from the store and I have tried many......from Blue to alpo. beniful, Iams. Hills. Ukanuba. and what ever else you can imagine. I even tried the old fashion bad for them dog food and they would not eat it. So instead of the head aches of trying anymore and wasting more money it is easier for me just to make it and they are both now very healthy and all their blood test are normal. they are not over weight and they are happy little campers......

I love deals, especially when it means I'll be saving on the price of the Blue Buffalo Wilderness Grain Free formulas I feed my pets. I'm constantly looking for specials at sites like PetSmart.com, Petco.com, Chewy.com and Wag.com but this time Wag.com has them beat. I got a 24lb bag of their food for $48 plus some pennies and tax, compared with the over $55 per 24lb bag at all those other sites. Oh, that would be the chicken flavor.

We buy a type of dog food call From. It's supposed to be pretty good for them although I hate that I can only get it from the local feed store.

Is it Fromm? what formula does your dog eat? my dogs had a samples of the game bird recipe and they loved it, you can also order it online, chewy.com has great prices

My dogs are not picky they eat any thing only one we have to watch because he gets gas and even the other dogs think he should have a special food.

We did make the switch to Canidae and it seems to be working well. My dog was having problems on Iams, which I find crazy because my Golden was able to thrive on Iams.

tried the cheapest. tried the most expensive...no grain .. too much grain ...brand names ... smaller-store brands, et cetera. what did i find was the results from the youngens reactions, amount of energy and weight fluctuation? they are more likely to barely taste the store brands, ate the most from the middle-of-line brands (particularly the cheaper alpo) and had to bribe them to eat the expensive (no grains) stuff. outcome = the treats at dollar TRee store CAN be the most nutritional (avid label reader), the mainstay dogfood is the alpo, buying discounted meat (which is the key to this diet) and throwing in things like white rice for weight stability and homemade breads just because they allllll have an affinity for this delicacy. we all come out - winning!!

what is the cheapest grain free dog food on the market? the lowest I have found is called authority at petsmart.

How much does the Authority cost? i saw that yesterday when I was there, but since it wasn't what I was looking for I didn't look at the price. They didn't have the canidae I was looking for so I had to go to Petco later and it was expensive :( I bought a small bag which probably wasn't cost effective, but it's what we had and then I ordered off of Amazon because it was 14 bucks cheaper!

if you have a costco membership they sell a Kirkland brand of dog food that is grain free and excellent price. it beat the competition on a per pound price for us. my lab likes it

you can get a 25 lb bag of Merrick Whole Earth Farms Grain-Free Chicken & Turkey Recipe Dry Dog Food for $39.99 at chewy.com link

Right now we use a brand called Nature's Variety because our dog needed to put on some weight. We were told that we could transition her to Canidae once she reached an ideal weight. I am looking forward to that because Canidae costs half of what Nature's Variety does

i have a senior chi and all she likes is Cesar the senior formula, she used to be able to eat the other flavors but it doesn't agree with her, so this is all she eats.

I was advised to give my dog Rotweiler/Newfoundland mix a dog food called Canidae and she is absolutely thriving on it and loves it.

My dog is allergic to corn so he is limited to three brands and they are not cheap in the slightest, so we tend to stick to the cheapest one called 4health.

When I had my dogs I fed them chicken and chuck steak and they thrived. There was a pan of high quality dry dog food available to them at all times but they rarely touched it. I could not afford to do this today.
