IMO you can't go wrong with either Victor or Purina ProPlan.

Tried Victor

Tried Victor after reading some reviews. My dogs wouldn't eat it. 3 cups would sit in dog dish for 2 days before they would eat it. Swapped back to Pro Plan. Cant go wrong with it

I am using Joy 24//20 with great results and itís about half the price of proplan and has more calories per cup. I have also had good results with Pride pro series too in the past.

Feed

I have tried the Joy, my dog like it seem to have plenty of energy but they just don't look very fat. I don't like to see the hip bones sticking up on my dogs. I was feeding Purina Dog Chow and they was doing good, but I was trying Joy. Guess I will change back.

Food

I have fed EVERY dog food that is mentioned on here and NOTHING compares to Purina.....!!!
Even Dog Chow is Outstanding & better than most others mentioned.
If you are feeding anything besides Purina....then you are not feeding the BEST.

Extreme Dog Fuel

Check out Extreme Dog Fuel. They are a small company but they make a outstanding product at a great price.

Their 30/20 is one of the few dog feed formulas on Dog Food Adviser that has 5 Stars.

I swapped from Victors which i liked but i love EDF. I know guys who went from feeding 6-7 cups a day of Value Pack to 2-3 cups of EDF with way better results.

you can find a retailer at Extremedogfuel.com

I ordered Extreme Dog Fuel just yesterday after listening to your podcast with them on. Looked into the reviews and dog food advisor. I'm looking forward to trying it. Very affordable and the owner Keith spent 20 minutes on the phone with me making sure I ordered the right formula and why it was the right formula.

For a new hunter like myself I hold a value in him sharing his knowledge and passion. Thanks Tyler

yes sir, you will not regret it i promise. Keith is a great guy and as been in the dog food business along time.

How many other dog food companies can you call the CEO and he will have 20 min conversation with you about dog feed?

Pride Pro series 27/20 orange bag if thatís available around you. 50lb for $32 dollars around here.
Less clean up than dog chow.
Dogs are fat and slick and will keep the weight on a dog if hunting hard.
You can feed 3 cups of pride compared to 5 cups of Dog chow.
I used to feed Dog chow
Dog chow here is now 46lb for $27.

I feed several dogs and for the couple extra bucks itís way more worth it to me. Feed less amount and easier cleanup.
I wouldnít feed the Black bag Pride 24/20.
Iíd stay with the Pro Series Lime green bag 21/17
Pro series Orange 27/20
Pro Series Red 31/22
Just my opinion.
