WELCOME TO THE FOOD GROUP - This group was started in an attempt to present well-researched and FACT-based information on the amazingly complicated and confusing issue of feeding our dogs. There are also many issues we would like to explore. We thought it would be helpful to put all of these questions, information, and feedback into one place here on DK where everyone can find it, contribute to it, ask questions, and learn together.
WE ASK THAT YOU NOT POST ANY RECOMMENDATIONS FOR PRODUCTS FOR WHICH YOU RECEIVE ANY TYPE OF COMMISSION OR COMPENSATION. THANK YOU.
IMPORTANT-PLEASE READ "FOOD GROUP GUIDELINES" BEFORE STARTING A NEW DISCUSSION.

Your favorite high value treats?

Started by J and Riley (and Luna). Last reply by Kathy and Ruby Skye Aug 11. 24 Replies

Tired of the same food

Started by Stacy. Last reply by Stacy Jul 26. 26 Replies

I think this is an easy question. I think Maggie is tired of her food. She's been eating the same thing for a long time, and she's kind of blah on it. She's my most reluctant eater anyway.She's eating Nature's Variety Instinct Raw Boost Beef. She's…Continue

Karen's own Jack is on Orijen and I know she thinks very highly of it. It's quite expensive but one of the top rated foods.
Comment by Nancy, Ned, Clancy, and Charlie on November 19, 2009 at 9:01pm
Ann, Highly recommended.

Me too!

Sounds like I need to try Charlee Bears....
Comment by Kelly Gallagher on October 14, 2009 at 9:51am
Maddy loves them too! I always laugh when I see what 46lb dog will do for a little Charlee Bear Turkey and Cranberry treat!
Comment by Lynne B on October 14, 2009 at 8:11am
Charlie Bear's at Trader Joe's are about 50% lower than Petsmart or Petco!
Comment by Wendy on October 14, 2009 at 7:00am
I was just there this weekend too! I would have picked them up for my puppies!!
I guess I need to go back soon! Love their wine selection!
Comment by Allyson, Peri & Taquito on October 14, 2009 at 6:57am
Peanut butter treats from Trader J's are awesome too! Tack almost does flips for them, I need to let Peri try them!
Comment by Sue, Murphy and Bella ()*o*() on October 11, 2009 at 7:07pm
Those are nice treats at Trader Joe's. My dog loves them too.
Comment by F, Calla & Luca on October 11, 2009 at 6:52pm
BTW,Trader Joe's did have dried chicken and beef strips, made in USA, with no added ingredients. Seemed like good things to me. It's hard to find treats not made in China or Thailand, etc.
