    I feel like I am slacking on the feed for my LGDs. I feed my injured Pyr Sportmix for Coop that has highest protein and fat content. I feed my other Pyr their cheaper food for maintenance, this is what works the best to keep him in shape. The puppy gets Diamond Naturals Large Breed puppy food. I never imagined I would ever have 3 different diets for 3 different dogs....

    Dont have LGDs but we feed out four pups chicken hearts & gizzards & cooked rice mixed with retriever bites from tractor supply then topped with fish oil. Oddly enough that is what they prefer over the expensive stuff. They also get goat or beef bones from a local butcher/acquaintance once to twice a week and also whatever they scavenge around the farm during the day.

    We feed our dogs retriever hi pro from tractor supply. My dogs eat it just as well and do fine compared to the no grain whole feed we were eating. Obviously more biproduct means more waste....and tons more poop.... and gas....

    They don't mind and eat it right up.
