I agree. Avoid high amounts of protein. One of the drawbacks of Orijen LB Puppy was the protein's effects on my boy, but every dog is an individual.

IMO I would stay away from Blue Buffalo. They have had enough recalls and food issues. Plus there seems to be a lot of relation to BB and food allergies/reactions/coat issues from fellow DTers.

Always start with a small bag until you know what you are getting into.

We can return unused portion for full refund at supplier. Allergies and coat issues are not welcome here.

I guess we will see how she does.

I feed Earthborn Grain Free.. It works beautifully and 5 out of the 6 look great on it. Ages 12weeks to 4yrs old. The other dog is 18mos and is on Acana (chicken and oatmeal), he has to have a higher grade of ingredients to keep his coat nice since he cant have any fish product. I know a few other folks that feed it as well with great results on at least 3 litters to 18mos and on their older dogs. The puppies are put on adult formula at 4mos to prevent pano. Earthborn also has a frequent buyer program like Orijen and Acana.

I had zero issues with BB Freedom puppy formula. No regurg or coat problems. But then again, Kimber rarely gets just dry kibble.

Breakfast is kibble with pumpkin, cottage cheese and an egg.

Lunch is a double dose of kibble and pumpkin with a partial can of Evangers wet mixed in.

Dinner is kibble, pumpkin, and Evangers with two gel caps of fish oil, or kibble, pumpkin, and a container of sardines.

In all of the meals the pumpkin is just a teaspoon full, to keep her poops nice and solid.

This week (and next) we're transitioning from the BB to Wellness Super5mix large breed puppy.

I tend to be more concerned with the calcium percentage than the protein... being a large breed puppy I want her bones to not get too much calcium and grow too quickly. I won't feed her anything close to 2% calcium, and try to stay under 1.5%.

Interesting...I just put Richter on Orijen and he's doing wonderful! I hope the Acana works for Angus...it's a great food. (Plus, we could use some more pics of Angus around here!)

Used to give her Hill's Science Diet when we got her, and then, at the recommendation of my fellow dobermantalk members, I switched to a better food - Wellness super 5 puppy mix. I must say, she's doing much better on that food - her coat is starting to improve as well. I also mix some warm water in it, as well a dollop of plain yogurt ( give yogurt once a day ).
