I picked several of them... hope that's ok?

I feed Odie royal canin, and he eats from everybody's plate here. Charlotte and Valentina eat Purina One. They eat too much and went through the 40lbs bag of royal canin in nothing. Even though I don't "feed" them these things, they also eat fruits from the trees in the backyard and anything they can catch... i can't figure out why they are so skinny... they eat everything! lol (Odie's fat, though... he gets too much human food...)

I feed my dogs Innova dog food but that's supplemented with chicken, veggies, yogurt, etc.

As far as bones, I only give them raw ones since cooked ones could splinter.

Shadow mostly gets purina Fit and Trim because he needs to lose weight, but occasionally he will get small amounts of table scraps. My boyfriend's dogs get dog food (forget the brand), moist and meaty dog food AND ground hamburger or pork (whichever is cheaper) every night. they actually cook meat for them every couple of nights. Those dogs eat better than i do.

I picked premium. I only feed natural dog/cat foods, and I feed my dogs Solid Gold, although I do give them cooked meat for a treat sometimes.

I am voting for my mom's dogs and the dogs I've had in the past. Human food isn't bad in moderation and usually what is good for humans is good for dogs. My dogs would eat their dog food, but they liked special treats. So what I would do was take a can of wet dog food, mix it with dry and add some water to make gravy. My dogs would act like I just made them a pot roast dinner or something.

Okay silly question before I can answer the poll... How do you know if your food is a premium brand dog food or not?

I use this brand http://www.fokker-diervoeders.nl/fok...am%20rijst.htm (always to lamb and rice) Sorry the site is in Dutch I didn't find any in English. If anyone wants a translation of what it says I can type it up.

I dont really know the diff in premium or non-premium either. I feed Zoe Nutro Lamb and Rice. And lots of dog treats. And on occasion she gets a treat of human food. My trainer said that pretty much anything that is good for humans is good for them. But not to feed them onions. But i try to keep zoe on the dog food, cuz she really likes to eat and i dont want her to get overweight.

Thanks Chrisannefor the example! I still don't know what my brand is so I just voted for None-premium brand. It's a good brand though with meat as the first ingredient and Loki does very well so I'm not complaining.

We feed Emma an all natural brand that the shelter started her on. I am guessing it is non-premium. Also don't forget that garlic and dark choclate are just as bad or worse than onions.
