The first 5 ingredients listed on the label usually tell you about all you need to know about a dog food. They are required to be listed in descending order based on inclusion rates. The chicken is good. The rest of it is not.

Chicken, Chicken By-Product Meal, Corn Meal, Ground Whole Grain Sorghum, Brewers Rice, A bit farther down is also barley.

My vet told me chicken by-product meal could be feathers.

We have 2 Great Pyrenees, an Australian Shepherd and a black Lab/Great Dane mix. We feed them Victor dog food and table scraps. When I slaughter chickens, I can the back pieces, feet, necks with rice, in quart jars. When they go off their feed, they get "canned chicken". They love it.

Victor makes a pretty good medium priced dog food. I've fed the green bag to my dog trying to hold her weight down. Like your's she loves chicken or any other meat off the table.

The first five ingredients in my dog's food is muskrat, beavertails, table scraps, ol roy, and roadkill.
Blue ripoff can't compare to my balanced dog feed.

You screwed the pooch when you put the Ol' Roy in what was otherwise a quite nutritious mix. :nod:

I have been feeding the Blue Buffalo since a little before I posted in March and I have been VERY pleased. I see why people say what they say about it. It has kept the dogs in great condition... and it's muscular condition... not just packed fat on them. Their coats look great and they are a lot more active when we hunt.

I know it's high but I strongly recommend it to people with working dogs. My smaller curr dogs only eat 1/2 a coffee can. The larger dogs get 1-3/4 can. It does not take near the food, almost half, to maintain their condition compared to any other feed I have fed over the years.
