    Growing up our dogs ate what they were given, if they chose to be fussy they would starve. So the fact that none of our dogs every died of starvation means they ate!!

    When it comes down to it Sasha is a dog, You feed her like a dog. Not a Human! Some people might say otherwise but meh that's their Opinion! I remember our dogs got no frills canned dog food and left overs from dinner! All our dogs lived to great ages!!

    So some people's view on "supermarket" food Is very low!

    Me, I say Feed away Darling Chum is fine, specially when its mixed with all the other stuff your giving her!!

    Ok bit of a rant there as well as advice but hey, had to do it!!

    If you only want her to eat dry food how does she feel about sardines?
    They are fantastic for their skin and coat and a little bit goes a long way when mixing through dry, especially the sardines in oil.
    Cheap too, about $1.60 for a 3 pack.

    I dont only want her to eat dry food, i feel that that is slack on her to be honest, i like to give her a variety thats why she has three smaller "different" meals than one large one. NOT saying that people who give one larger meal are wrong in any aspect, each to their own i say. i just thought that she SHOULD be eating it for the nutrition side is all, as i have seen in other threads.. and thanks bulldog lover your a sweetheart i didnt think me giving her chum seeing as though she gets pet mince, chicken necks, lamb shanks and roo tail bones, was such a bad thing either... :/

    Oh and on the pal, the breeder informed me that she has changed to dogs over to "pedigree working dog" at night instead of chum ( not that chum is bad she just thought she would try pedigree and turns out their coats looked better after feeding the pedigree). so i may try that. And she has had her dogs always on canned supermarket food at night and has 4 aust. champions, so cant be all bad

    lol Mine couldn't handle the top range stuff, just a sniff and they turned into little beach balls. I tried Royal Canin for a few months and even though I was feeding them hardly anything they were borderline obese.

    Higher grade, more expensive foods are needed by some dogs such as ones with high metabolisms, nursing mothers, pregnant bitches, giant breeds etc... but in general the cheaper ones usually do the job.
    I always say to just avoid colorings and unnecessary preservatives as they can be allergy triggers (good-o's for example, those fire engine red rings).

    My MIL's Silky is now the same age, perhaps a little older.
    She has been fed Chum dry nearly her whole life. The past few years I convinced her to introduce something softer because of her age.

    We don't know if she will make it through another winter due to her arthritis though poor thing, she's still a happy pup, greets you with tail wagging, but is reluctant to get up.
    Her little mate Zena is going to be devastated, she is only 6 years old and been with her since she was a pup.

    yeh that makes sense, my sasha she has been on chum since she could eat ( in addition to raw foods etc) and she is happy and healthy and a good weight, so why should i toss it? i know it was not you who said that. My only worry is that she is not eating her dry food, and i only worry incase she is not getting nutrients that only the dry can provide. however if everything else that i am feeding her, (chicken necks, pet mince, lamb shanks, and roo tail bones) is giving her the nutrients that she requires i wont worry too much about the dry. I will still make it available to her during the day, but i wont stress about her eating it or not
