We are changing foods.

Now that I am working at a pet food store I have had a lot more information thrust on me and time to do research and so I have decided to switch the boys diet. We were on Taste of the Wild which is a wonderful food and the first that I found to help Porter's skin problems (he has been way less itchy since we started on TotW) but I feel like it's time for a change. Isn't kind of awful to think of eating the same thing everyday of your life? So we are switching to a wonderful Canadian food, Canada regulates food a little better than the U.S. and requires more info of it's food companies. The company is called Champion Pet foods and we are on the Acana Grasslands. It's labeling and ingredients are very transparent and what makes me feel even better about the choice is the locality and sustainability of all of the ingredients plus it's grain free which is wonderful. The more I learn about dog food companies the grumpier I get but so far I am just too lazy to do raw food, though I am planning on trying dehydrated food like Honest Kitchen at some point, the boys are still young so trying new things is great for all of us. What kind of food are you on? What do you think of it?

*I am not being payed or compensated in any way from any of these brands.*


  1. We are on Canidae No Grain. When we tried grain foods, I, Daisy, itched a lot. Now I don't have that problem.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  2. Excellent choice for food, I feed our crew Acana too. I have also fed our dogs the Honest Kitchen foods as well--Would you believe that their food is 'people tested?' What a job that would be! :-)!!

  3. Brodie and Caolin are being fed Taste of the Wild (Pacific Stream), it has tamed Caolin's skin issues too. I would love to have an update once you guys have been on it for some time to know how Porter's skin problems are doing on the new food.

  4. Thanks for sharing this, we are having problems with Pippi's food too. She is reacting to something.


  5. Thanks for the info! I'd love to hear what you think after they've been on it for a while. It's true, eating the same thing the rest of your life would be awful!

  6. Hi,

    Great site! I'm trying to find an email address to contact you on to ask if you would please consider adding a link to my website. I'd really appreciate if you could email me back.

    Thanks and have a great day!
