For you judgemental people who look down at dry food oh, and don't have children, have a couple first, then tell me how good your dogs eat. Oskar is a loved member of my family, but he does not sit up at the table eating the best raw rump. He is a dog, he gets what I can afford to feed him.
    OM you are obviously doing a great job with your kids and dog and like you I have two children and they come first as they should. Gotta luv the sunshine coast for bring up kids.
    Raw works for me but it may not suit others and thats fine it's there choice. Lets all just chill out!

    Now you mention it, my daughter grew up on dog kibble. She used to eat it out of the dog's bowl all the time when she was crawling. I got fed up stopping her so I usually just let her. No harmful side effects so far.

    And yes, let's chillax. Some of the posts in this thread probably had the effect of creating a resistance to consider a raw diet more than the opposite!

    As a couple with no kids my partner and I are able to feed our dogs expensive, good quality foods but I can assure you that it would be very different if we had kids to feed and look after. I think it is much more important to make sure you have money available to take your dogs to the vet if needed than being broke because you're spending a fortune on feeding them. As long as your dog is loved, happy, healthy and a good weight it shouldn't matter what you are feeding them and it definitely does not make you a 'bad owner' for feeding them whatever you chose/can afford!

    I have never understood why some people work themselves into a religious fervour over "correct feeding". If your pet is doing well, has a shiny healthy coat, great teeth, fresh breath and is happy and active, then you are feeding them well.

    If you care to do the research, you will find that Australia has more regulations regarding pet food manufacture than the US does, so a lot of those internet sites that people bluster about simply do not apply here. As long as you are feeding mostly a product that says it is a "complete and balanced diet" and your pet does well on it, then ignore the trolls. If you really want to know which of the commercial diets are better quality, join the Australian Consumer's Association and get the results of their testing.

    For the record, I feed my own dogs a mainly natural diet based on BARF principles, but I feed rescues half commercial/half raw for a number of reasons.

    Probably going to show my age here but ....... me and my little brother were constantly getting in trouble for depleting the dogs boxes of LUV dog bikkies ( havn't seen them in years). They were different colours and shaped in triangles and different shapes for ( supposedly) different flavourds. For some reason we found the 'pink' and 'green' ones the best

    I wonder if all us dog food eaters have build up a resistance to the euth chemicals now

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.
