We will be following the BARF diet too when the pup arrives on Monday. It's what she has been getting at the breeder and I think it's the best thing to follow her thru on based on the biological needs and evolutionary requirements of a dog. She will have absolutely no grains, especially cooked ones!
If you want the best diet go BARF if you are feeding commercial food, never ever feed canned food. Its horrible for them its like eating McDonalds for them, its also contains a lot of water and is bad for their teeth. They need hard food to break down the tarter that builds up on the teeth to maintains healthy gums and teeth.
I feed mine Raw bones (turkey, chicken, and beef) chicken necks, beef hearts, chicken livers. I dont feed grain or veggies you wont find a wild dog picking veggies and eating from rice fields.
Thanks for all the advise I guess I should do a little of my own research then decide what's best for my dog
Mostly stuff out of the Lort Smith Animal Hospital cookbook I've had for years. Roo mince, rice, frozen veg and a tsp each of soy and sweet chilli is always a hit and is easy to freeze in individual portions.
I used to give my dogs a tin of sardines in oil over their dried food every morning and I think it did wonders for their coat as it was always shiny!
