that sounds fine to me, roxi wont eat the carrots so i dont give them to her, from time to time ill give her chicken or a little treat like that. how old is your pup?

Due to Kibble size issues we have switched back to Royal Canine, it's middle of the road food but they make it in a Kibble size that Bijou can eat. AJ will eat anything but was started on RC then switched to Fromm and Merrick and now back to RC due to his brother lol.

We feed our puppies Royal Canin puppy and it is quite good.
Once they turn 1 year old I give them Timberwolf Organic. It is honestly one of the best food out in the market

When most of mine were pups we fed EVO but we switched to feeding raw when Marley was 5.5mo old. If I got another pup I'd definitely feed raw. But I'd also not hesitate feeding ZiwiPeak (you just have to double recommended feeding based on weight where Coco is still a puppy) or even Embark or Thrive Honest Kitchen. I'd probably go with Embark honestly though. We got a small box of Thrive & I'm not as thrilled with it as I was the grain free Force. Embark is also grain free so I'm guessing my lot would do better on that since they typically have been grain free for forever.

I started Chico with Wellness tell he was 1 year old. Than I had to change it cos I notice he only eats it because that what I give him. But he eats only a little and his coat was flakey So I change to Orijen. And notice the same thing when I gave him wellness. But worse cos he gained so much weight even tho his not finishing his food. So the vet told me to change his food to Royal Canin I have to say I was not happy at first to do that but I said I will give it a tray and see how it goes. Chico loves it. He cant wait to eat and the vet and I are happy with his weight now.

We have Royal Canin in our local pet store so It less money to buy the food online Plus the shipping cost. So Im happy. :D

Brody eats prey model raw. He eats only fresh, whole raw foods. No kibble.

Tabitha and Jerry were started on Royal Canin. I tried Wellness, and they did poorly on it.
Royal Canin Mini Indoor Puppy 27 was the closest I could find to the "breeder's mix". It
has no corn which was important to me. They can stay on that up to 10 months old;
then I switched over to RC Mini Indoor Adult 21.

Well I went through trying around 3 types of kibble with Cici she's so fussy, I found one she loves though, James Wellbeloved, It's really good in my opinion, no fillers or preservatives, but all the good stuff :D
