Grain-free kibble mostly. We do a lot of pre-made raw when conditioning for the show season.
Nia is on all the Acana grain free formulas in rotation.
Truffles and Popcorn are on all the Orijen formulas in rotation.
Nu uh! Black ice! Or something...
Companies ship overnight raw all the time, stop tryin to crush my dream!!
That works! I brought raw with me to visit Linds. I didn't even have to pack ice or anything. I just filled up the coolers and let it all keep itself frozen.
Right now a mix of NV Instinct and TOTW. When what I have open is gone, I still have a bag of TOTW high prairie to use up. Then Gavroche is probably going on Victor grain-free high protein and/or some sort of grain-free rotation, and Logan will go on TOTW Wetlands. I can't guarantee perfect poops from Logan unless he's on TOTW Wetlands.
I'd like to feed raw. Tango ate NV raw for a couple weeks because I got a good deal on a small bag. But premade is too expensive for my dogs, and I don't have ANY freezer space for prey model. None. Around here trying to buy food daily or every other day ends up being as expensive or more expensive than pre-made.
Raw here, with table scraps (depending on what was for dinner). And a grain free kibble to stuff into Ivans kong and bones. He gets NO grains cause well he stinks to high heaven.
When available, I will do prey model with Peewee. I tried prey model with Ivan and he wouldn't eat it. Kept looking at it as if it was going to jump up and bite him. Yes he's weird.
We are pretty evenly split between high quality kibble (usually grain free, but sometimes grain inclusive) and dehydrated. I'm also feeding occasional premade raw as well. Usually the dogs get kibble in the morning and dehydrated or raw in the evening.
dry ice. It's a miracle!

Both my dogs are on Orijen. Currently switching Gusto off the puppy formula.
I used to rotate the grain free kibbles with Meg, but the fact is, nothing makes her look as good as the Orijen. I've been rotating formulas with her, but Gusto has a much more sensitive stomach than she does. We'll have to see if it works for him.
I did pre-made raw for quite a while with Meg, but a combination of expense plus having other people feed made it less than ideal. She still gets RMB sometimes for the teeth; again, will have to see if it works for Gusto.

I pack a cooler if I go somewhere, super easy!
Thats when chicken quarters come in handy. Freeze how ever many I need for the weekend individually. Throw them in the cooler (with one partially thawed) and away we go. Frozen meat does double duty. It feeds him and keeps the stuff cold while thawing.
