    I put grain inclusive, still high quality.

    It depends on what we get, but at the grocery store if I'm there, I try and find the best kibble they have, but its still probably not the best. We also feed canned food, but not much and its low quality.

    There needs to be an option for all of the above! :p

    For the most part, I feed my dog whatever's in the house. I say he's on raw, and for the most part that's true, but often he'll have table scraps, kibble, canned food, garbage (when he manages to get into it, grr...) and whatever else is lying around.

    I find he doesn't need a lot of food to get fat, so if I feed him something from my dinner as a half thought, it's often enough to count as a meal or whole day's worth of calories for him and then I can't feed him what I'd ideally like to. Oops.

    Long story short, he gets a pretty even blend of most of the poll options.
     
  7. Mine are all on raw!

    ToTW here. But if I can find a reasonably priced freezer we'll probably switch to raw sometime next year.

    I said grain free, but it really just depends.

    Chloe eats grain free (TOTW) because when she was on food with grains she had poop ranging from solid to cow patty over the course of a day and I got sick of dealing with it.

    Cynder gets TOTW, too, mainly because that's what I feed Chloe and I wanted to get her off of Pedigree.

    I wouldn't be opposed to feeding a high quality grain-inclusive diet, I just can't do so with Chloe so I'm feeding grain free.

    TOTW here with occasional small amounts of other stuff added, like a little egg or canned TOTW mixed in. They love that.

    Pre-made raw.. Primal
    I'm very happy with it! For a small dog, it's a money saver price-wise, he only eats about 2 nuggets a day and averaged out, it's less $ than high quality kibble

    My only issue is that potentially, for larger dogs, the cost is very high!

    Serious answer:

    Frodo has been having digestive issues since the beginning of fall and thus far can only seem to handle Nature's Variety Rabbit formula. Every time I add something else in, he gets sloppy stool. It's driving me insane as he has always been my eat everything dog!

    Starting this weekend I am going to experiment and see if he can handle raw rabbit as well, since I have Bravo rabbit, NV rabbit and Primal rabbit in my freezer. I really really want him back on raw.

    I feed Frodo premade because I get them for free and he only eats 4oz a day, but when we have larger dogs I will definitely be making my own again. I prefer making my own to premade, but I just don't have the tools to cut up a lot of the larger bones to make everything smaller portions, and Frodo can be guardy around raw meat so I don't want to mess with taking portions away from him for later serving.

    High quality grain inclusive kibble, with medium quality canned spooned on top (just for a bit of flavour).

    They eat Burns dry food, with a bit of Butchers wet.
     
  20. We feed TOTW... Every once in a while for a treat they'll get a bit of canned food with their kibble, and its typically crap canned, but its not every day (More like once every couple of months)
