dog food analysis sites?
I know I might as well ask how to flog a dead horse, but I am looking through old questions and I can’t find the sites people have posted that review and rate dog foods. Consider this a 2 point freebie I suppose… Can you post the sites for me? I told my pops I would send them over to him. Much love and thanks!

perfect!! found exactly what I needed, thanks guys!
There are many, this is the best:
hope that helps
*edit- this one is poular too but I prefer the first
Is 4health a good enough dog food?
I’ve posted several questions about dog food previously…
Originally, my mom had all of our dogs on Ol Roy for years. With my job, and actually making my own money, and already knowing that it was not a good dog food, wanted to put them on something better.
I checked out walmart and got Purina Complete Natural…
Only to learn that it is really not much better than Ol Roy.
I figured out where our local Tractor Supply was, and went there today to look as some better brands of dog food…
I had been research Blue Buffalo, and decided I’d get that if they had it in stock all the time. Well, they had one bag of adult left… And I need food for both a puppy and two full grown (1 year old and 11 year old) golden retriever and a lab.
Not knowing much about other brands I started checking prices and flipping over bags to read ingredients…
I ended up purchasing 4Health puppy, and 4Health Adult Lamb and Rice formula.
I was using dogfoodanalysis.com to check the rating of food, and can’t find this one on there…
Here is the links for them:
So, I’m not sure…
What does everyone else think? It seems to be a good food, but the fact is, I am not sure myself…
Thank you before hand for any imput!
I checked this food out well – it is a BARGAIN priced food for such a high quality kibble!
I just bought my first bag last weekend, and I plan on starting my dogs on it once their current food (Exclusive) is almost gone, so I can transision them over to it.
4health is supposed to be more digestible, and free of corn and other crap grains. It should also result in smaller & firmer poops – that’s always a good thing in my book. I’m very excited that Diamond is manufacturing this for Tractor supply – finally there is a good quality affordable dog food available.
Time For A Dog Food Poll?
Feel free to answer as many or as few of the poll’s questions as you like!
If you raw feed, do you feed BARF, Raw Prey Model, or other (please specify)?:
Why did you choose whichever raw feeding model you chose over the others?:
If you feed dog food, what brand do you feed?:
Do you feel the food you are feeding is a good brand to be feeding?:
If you do, why do you feel it’s a good brand?:
How does your dog food brand rate here ( http://www.dogfoodanalysis.com/dog_food_reviews/ )?:
Do you feed wet or dry?:
Do you feed on a schedule, freefeed, or other (please specify)?:
Is your dog overweight or underweight?:
If so, what measures are you taking to remedy it?:
I’m not going to discourage thumbs-ups and thumbs-downs because I feel that they help people realize whether or not they are feeding their animals well.

WARNING: Natura Pet Products (Innova, EVO, California Natural, Karma, Healthwise and Mother Nature) used to be high quality pet food products but Natura has recently sold out to Proctor & Gamble, a company known for it’s animal testing and low quality pet foods (they put out Iams and Eukanuba). If you are still feeding any of the products previously owned by Natura you may want to consider switching to a different food now that those products are owned by a large, shady company like Proctor & Gamble.

We feed Prey Model Raw to our 5 dogs and 2 cats
I think you can simply look in a dog’s mouth and at their digestive tract to see they’re not designed to eat vegetables, grains, etc.
Their dentition is designed solely to tear through meat and break through bones
They lack a long digestive tract necessary to break down plant cellulose
If I feed my dog raw carrots, they poop out raw carrots… nuff said

How can I train my dog not to bite, growl, and chase other people?
id really like to know how to train my male dog not to bite,growl,and chase people. need anwsers as soon as possible!
Get him neutered – this will help with a lot of the aggressiveness.
Enroll him in obedience classes – this will help him learn that you are the boss and teach him to behave even when other dogs are around.
Take him to a park or a store parking lot. Sit with him on a leash somewhere where there are a lot of people going by. Every time some one goes by, call his name and when he looks at you, give him a treat (boiled chicken is great for this). Pretty soon, he will get the idea that people going by is a good thing because it means he gets a treat. Keep him on his leash – that way he cannot chase people. If he cannot chase them, he cannot catch them. If he cannot catch them, he cannot bite them. Do not allow anyone to approach him until you are sure he will not bite them. If he starts to growl, tell him to “hush”. When he stops growling to look at you, praise him and give him a treat. Definitely enroll him in obedience classes and let the trainer know your specific questions about training him.
What are those dog bite-weight things called? They are instructional/training toys?
I’ve having trouble finding them on google. When I type “dog bite weight” all I seem to get is pictures of muzzled dangerous dogs and dog bite victims.
They look like aerobic hand weights, but they are for dogs to hold in their mouth. They run through tunnels and hurdles with them.
They’re doggie dumbbells….they’re used in obedience training.
what is the best method to train my dog?
how to train dog to stop biting and br obedient?
Nothing but the best!!

How to get my dog to quit eating kittys food?
Just thanking everyone for suggestions but we got the head removed and all the ticks…There was only 7 total but still could have harmed her. As for some of the rude comments I ask in the future if you dont know all circumstances then dont comment. I did not breed the dog nor let her get pregnant. She was abondoned by some people in Missouri and I just drove 800 miles to help the friends of mine out and went n got them before they lost their home and dogs went to pound because they did not have the room. I however live on a farm so I have the room. In missouri they had only a one bedroom and it was near woods. I did call a 24 hr animal clinic b4 posting question. I also have one more question…How do you get a dog to quit eating the cats food…lol…Was just curious…I have heard several ways like squirt her with water and other things. Please let me know. Any rude comments or answer I will report. Thank you.
Cat food is sweeter than dog food, so I am told by my vet. This sorta explains why so many dogs develop a liking for what is left in the cat box (ICK!!)
I never got my dog to stop gorging on the cat’s food. It’s really high in calories and he had saddle bags and a fat roll over his tail (Chihuahua). He quickly learned to never eat it if I was in the same room, so if your dog is as clever, the squirt bottle trick won’t work for long. I finally gave up and put the cat food where the dog could no longer get to it, but the cat could. That’s likely your best option IMO.
How do I get my dog to stop begging for food?
We got our dog from someone who always let him eat people food. Now whenever he sees us eating food, he begs for it. We try ignoring him. Will this do the trick? Or is there anything else we can try?
Yes, just keep ignoring him and NEVER give in. He will eventually learn that begging gets him no where.
How can I get my dog not to jump on counters and eat our food and how should I punish her?
My dog Reyna (German Shepherd) gets out of my room at night and eats food on the counters, even if it’s in a container she somehow opens it and eats the food. THANK YOU for reading and your answers.
Oh boy, same problem with my dog, ok, evertime she does this you need to hit her ( preferably somewhat hard ) and do not treat, praise, pet or enjoy her for sometime

Can my Pomeranian get sick from eating mice?
My Pomeranian is always catching mice and eats them. Some times he won’t eat his dog food and catches mice outside.
They are field mice. They live in the wild.
There is a chance he could get parasites like worms or things like mange ect. I assume he has his rabies shot because that is a possibility because mice can be contaminated with rabies.
How long will my dog persist?
I am trying to get her off human food for the past 2 days. She won’t eat the dog food[Kirkland Brand]unless I toss it to her or hand feed her. I’ve been putting the dog food down in the kitchen and picking it up after half an hour. She’s been getting no treats. How long will it take until she eats it on her own?
She’ll get hungry eventually! Try putting some food on the floor or sitting near the bowl while she eats, then moving away slowly. Eventually she’ll know that she needs to eat her own food, not yours!
This is exactly why I don’t allow anyone to feed my puppy human food!
What can i do if my puppy is not eating?
My puppy is 7 month old.. and i just got her a month ago. She won’t eat her dog food and only wants human food. We try to get her to eat it but she is very picky. She only eats what she wants to eat and that is what bothers me. Help would be greatly appreciated.
BTW, How can i train her to stop acting aggressive?
Mix a little bit of human food with dog food.

How do I get my dog back on dog food?
My dog dose not want to eat dog food no more what should I do?
You don`t feed him anything BUT dog food and he will eat the dog food when he gets hungry enough.
Offer him dog food every 6-8 hours until he IS hungry enough to eat it and then continue to only give him dog food.
NEVER offer him human food again.
Whats the difference between Cat and Dog food ?
my cat has been eating dog food is this a problem ?
Long term yes, that will be a problem. Switch him to cat food. It’s very high in an amino acid called taurine. Dogs don’t need much but cats do, so cat food is fortified with it.
Theres a couple of sites on this page that will explain.
How can i get my dog to eat dog food and not ours?
She only eats people food cause my family spoiled her, its my sisters dog but we all take care of her, she eats rice, meat, ice cream, chocolate, sandwiches, milk with cereal, coffee, chips and anythin yu can think of and now shes picky, she likes cheesey things and crunchy stuff, but how do i get her to eat dog food, shes a yorkie btw, thanks
By not feeding her human food, which is slowly killing her by the way..
Get everyone on board as far as not feeding her people food, and she’ll get used to eating her own food.
