    Without going into exact amounts because I don't measure.

    Minced chicken frames
    Lightly cooked veggies mashed into the mince
    Raw meaty bones
    Whole chicken frames
    Chicken necks
    Raw egg
    Tuna

    The pasta we use is wholemeal and the rice is just normal
    long grain..
    We use these 2 as they are basically a filler, our dogs are hungry all the time
    so this all works for our dogs..
    Been doing this for approx 15 years, all our dogs have never had
    a problem processing this so yeah we use what works for us.

    And yeah we cook it all in one go and then we bag it in 1 kilo lots
    once cooled down and then put into freezer..
    We pull a bag out for each dog every morning for them and they eat that early afternoon.
    They get a large cup of kibble each for during the day to tie them over till dinner time.

    They also eat Briskets and trotters ect along with all their vitamins..

    I do pretty much the same things as you, Mince chicken (sometimes beef) veggies, rice and a bit of egg once or twice a week now. Thinking about trying Phuds though! I've heard great things.

    phuds.com.au if you wanna check it out.

    Oskar is on Science Diet. He was on Advance, but he was farting like a bush horse, and they were brutal. On this his tum seems quite settled and he is more excited about feed time then when he was on the previous.

    I know what that's like. Mojo can nearly peel the paint of the walls. I'm thinking of changing his dog roll to see if it helps otherwise it must be the bloody expensive dry food. Either way somthing has to be done .......its really bad.

    They certainly used to make our eyes water LOL, the Science Diet is still pricey but I actually think it is one of the more affordable dry foods, and Osky is quite happy to eat it. And when he does do a poo, it's actually quite firm, not sloppy (haha sad that I take an interest in his craps lol) and they don't smell as ghastly. (Being a mum, I have smelt worse lol)

    I can almost guarantee it is the food that is causing the smelly issues.

    Good food doesn't have to be expensive. Lots of us feed raw diets for much less than you spend on those crappy foods every week.

    If you want to go dry food, holistic dry foods are better and cheaper (or priced about the same) than the expensive dry foods such as Science diet.

    Try Black Hawk, VERY well priced and doesn't have all the cruddy grains, preservatives, colours etc that the other drys do.

    Have to agree fully with K&P...I think you know my dogs are large .........If I had four lots of flatulence we would have to move out of the house as ours are with us a lot

    Back to poop issue...My dogs always have firm easy to pick-up poop. I change my diet all the time. what is cheap, what is available meat wise or veggie wise and bone wise. I do feed some grains, because the large dogs do have a hunger problem if you only feed the required amount of meat product.

    And when I use a dry food when we travel I use Black hawk...And my super allergic dog can eat this with no break=out. And we do not slowly change-over, we just give it when we run out of RAW on our trips, no easing in at all...........LOVE Black Hawk, no wheat, no colouring, no preservatives and the dogs love it. I even use it as training tit bits at the kennel Club for some dogs. Most dogs prefer it to some of the stuff their owners bring

    Newf on Black Hawk..what do you pay for a 20kg bag?

    I am waiting on a sample bag but I know my dogs are not going to be fussy with it so might just order some.

    We get pay about $75.00 per 20kg bag from petstock They order it as I want it, not so frequent....i think you can get it direct, but i had trouble with transport as we are Rural.

    So far every dog I have met and tried it on thinks it is a treat........All the dogs at training love it. You might know how some people bring sh** treats for their dogs, well they won't eat the owners dry food, but will gobble up black hawk....i always have some in my pocket now for the surprise good dog treat i like to give out sometimes to my crew. Still doesn't wash well in the pockets though....Smacko's wash the best LOL..makes you think what they are made of

    That price sounds great ! I'm paying $114 for 15kg for the Vetenary version of Royal Canin which i thought was a top of the range food as i havnt read any bad reviews at all about it but i'm willing to give this Black Hawk a go. My only concern is that with Mojo been so young and still growing very fast i need a food that is going to give him the bone and joint support that he needs to avoid future issues. I'll do some research of my own but would this food be suitable for him at 6 months old. It's my understanding that he'll keep growing for somtime yet (12-18months?). He's roughly 35kg's now and the vets think he might get up near the 50-60 kg mark.
    Your thoughts on this would be appreciated guys.
    Cheers.
