Just wanted to see if anyone had any good input to help me decide on a food. So I jave had my dog on nutro for the past year or so and jsut not seeing any reduction in itching (even though it might be dry climate in Denver) and also want to go to grain free for my baby. i ahve narrowed it down to a couple. Wanted to get eveyrones take on which one would work best.
first about my dog
1. 80 lb 5 yr old female
2. Pretty active but stays inside all day while at work
3. not a sensitive stomach at all

So I have researched an come up with these options
1. Timberwolf organics
2. Chicken soup
3. Canidae
4. Orijen
5. Into the wild

I really like timberwolf but it is a little pricey, not totally sold on chicken soup but it is very cheap. Anyone got any good input on those or another option in the 40-55$ for 30-40lbs

Chicken Soup is not grain-free. It is cheap. I used it and my dogs did not do well on it.
I think you mean Taste of the Wild? It is a good grain-free food and fairly cheap also.
There is also Wellnes Core, a good grain-free food.

haha yeah I did mean taste of the wild. And actually just heard timberwolf recently changed tehre formula without telling its distributors. I heard some negative press about wellness is that founded at all? And it is so pricey taste is still reasonable

If you look hard enough, there is bad press about nearly every dog food. I used Wellness and my aunt uses Wellness with great success. I just switched to Natural Balance, but it's not a grain-free food.
Taste of the Wild is a great food.

Do you know what he's allergic to? My dog (Jaia) was allergic to chicken. We switched to Natural Balance Sweet Potato and Venison and he's great! It may be the protein in your food that your dog is allergic to. I would try a fish, lamb, venison or duck food. The Limited Ingredient foods from Natural Balance are really pretty good. But I'd try a single protein food before switching to another food with the same protein as he's been eating, even if it is grain free.

Royal Canin acctually make a German Shepard food. It is very high quality and its what we like to feed our German Shepard. Its pretty hard to argue a a better food for German Shepards than this one.

I feed this food, too! My dogs love it and they look great! ( I do rotate with TImberwolf, though)
