Thread: Black hawk dry food

  1. #1

    Default Black hawk dry food

    Hi all,

    I was wanting to purchase some black hawk dry food for my pup (Rottie). Although the pup will only be fed dry food once a week i would prefer it to be good quality.

    Does anyone know where to buy black Hawk in Sydney?

    Thanks

    If I feed dry it is Black hawk...i have done some study into different dry and this one stands out........I feed RAW, but die to travel, need dry back up. My dogs love it. I just go from RAW to Black Hawk and no issues.

    I bought Black hawk yesterday and RAW for the first time. I had been feeding my 8 month old boxer the Royal Canin Boxer Puppy dry food and some chicken (cooked) and veg most days and sardines once a week. I have a bit of Royal Canin left that I'm mixing in with the Black hawk, Ruby loved it yesterday and I just fed her the RAW for the first time this morning (I just tried half a sachet to see if she liked it) and she was so excited when I was putting it in her bowl, she absolutely loved it

    Black hawk is more economical than Royal Canin for me and I found a pet supply shop in Perth that sells it, after reading these posts last week, I decided I wanted to try it myself, and Ruby loves it.

    I'm on about week 3 with the Black Hawk and Mojo's stopped farting so bad and his turds look great. I swapped from Royal Canin aswell and i'm saving heaps of $$$ and have a better food.

    The only thing i'd whinge about is the size of each individual bit of kibble. They are tiny. Probably dosnt matter at all but it's just diffrent looking to other brands.

    ........and my 10 year old son reckons the Royal Canin tastes better that the Black Hawk.......he'll do anything for 5 bucks LOL.

    The reason they give for the size is prevention of Bloat.........There has been some thought that the size of dry-food is relative to the increase cause of bloat (also the amount they expand when soaked in the stomach/bowel). That is why a lot of holistic like Black-hawk and Eagle Pack is very small......

    Your very welcome LOL....from the RAW feeder who recommends dry food LOL.

    But I do have a bin of it and it comes in handy when traveling....Also i have found it works really well on most dogs for training.......I keep a bag of it and use it in my Beginner and puppy classes. because i was having to cook way too much liver. And all the handlers keep brining crap treats. And almost all of the dogs love it as a treat/lure.....Awesome

    That's interesting Newfsie, and good to know. I was surprised when I saw the small pieces of Black hawk, but my girl is quite a slow eater and i could hear her crunching, not just shovelling and swallowing - she was doing the dog equivalent of "nom nom nom" yesterday
