Thread: What Brand Dog Food for Doberman Puppy?

  1. #1

    Question What Brand Dog Food for Doberman Puppy?

    Hi I have a 9 week old doberman puppy and need some ideas as to what is the best canned and dry dog food brand . What brand do you use if you use one? I have heard bad things about Eukanuba, Hills diet, lams and nutro so im pretty confused.....

    Thanks

    Whatever the pup has been fed on up to now then gradual change to whatever you choose.
    My pups have done brilliantly on supercoat puppy and raw..chicken necks, wings, meaty bones.

    Ditto with Kuro and Kirri... No food related health issues with either, and what comes out the rear is always solid and not too offensive at all !!!

    Whatever you do regarding dry food do feed raw meaty bones, as the others have advised, also if a big enough breed add soft brisket bones later, dogs were not meant to eat mostly grain and that is what is in most dry foods.....mostly grain.

    When you first got the pup, were you given a feeding chart?

    If so, continue feeding the pup what he/she was previously fed.

    I also recommend Purina Supercoat as I have been feeding my three it and they just adore it.

    Take a look here, there are a variety of selections which best suits you: PURINA SUPERCOAT - Dog Food Range

    I think it's a case of each to their own, and what dry food works for one dog does not necessarily work the best for another.

    ProPlan is a quality premium food, and the yhave many varieties for different needs. I have actually heard great reports from ppl using Nutro range. One of the best I have ever seen results from is actually Royal Canin.

    There are so many commercial foods out there. My suggestion is to know what you are looking for, or NOT looking for, and research from there. Everything is always trial and error.

    What was your puppy fed on at the breeder? Our Doberman has done well on raw beef and chicken mince with the Vets All Natural porridge mix. We mix it up in batches, freeze it in portion sizes and pull out as needed. That is what she was fed on at the breeder and we have continued it.

    Oskar was on ADVANCE but he didn't seem to enjoy it and it also gave him bad gas. He is now on Hills Science Diet for sensitive skin, and he really enjoys meal times now and the stinky wind is no longer a major problem. He also gets raw bones and occasionally chicken necks. As said already, it really depends on your pooch's tastes and needs. You may try a couple before you find the right one!
