I had been looking for a quality feed for some month uld pups and their mother. I have tried about every brand out there, except Taste of the Wild. It is just too rich for my blood. So i raed about the TSC version called 4Health. It is still a little salty, but the results were amazing. The 4Health puppy food really performs for te pups. I am going to try 4Health with my big hounds as soon as I finish up the Diamond Sport Dog bag.

I really enjoy reading these post on dog food. What I don't understand is why some people feed the same food and one person feeds two or three cups a day and somebody else feeds one cup of the same feed. I am assuming all dogs are in good health and worm free but you know what assume does, makes a ass out of u and me. But anyway somebody is feeding too much or somebody is not feeding enough. I know everybody has their food they like but I have trouble believing that a dog can be hunted very much on one cup of feed. I'm not trying to rub anybody the wrong way but this is just my opinion. I have fed many types of feed and I think that you can not beat Purina. I am a country boy and can't afford pro plan if you can thats great. But I don't think you can buy a better feed for the money than dog chow. I know it don't have the 30/20 on the bag that alot of feeds do but from my experience the results are the same. Good looking dogs with less stool. And all my dogs love it. I feed black gold sometimes I think it is a good fed also just a little higher around here and hard to find. Sorry for the guys feeding diamond but my dogs won't eat it. I could get by with one cup a day of it because thats all they won't of it. And before you guys go to bashing me remember the question of this post. This is what I feed and my opinion and I am welcome to constructive critisim. Thanks.

Volfan,
It could be the size of the dog. I have a 15" and 15.5" with a large build that can look pretty good at anwhere from 30-40 lbs. I feed them 1 cup 2X a day. I could see someone that has a 13" dog with a slight build that is 20 lbs. feeding about 1/2 that.
