Hi i am new to this, but here we go, i am currently feeding my 4 year old neutered cocker with royal canin, but have been told that this food has a high amount of salt. can anyone advise as a good all round dog food i can buy
Personally I feed James Wellbeloved and my 3 dogs do very well on it. That is about my budget. If I had a few more pennies, I'd go with Acana or Ziwipeak. I've fed them to my dogs before and they seem to be superior, but certainly come with a price to match!

Well james wellbeloved is a good quality complete dog food and is afordable, i fed it to my collie for several months, but he is quite picky and for some reason went off it. I now feed him burns complete dry dog food the fish variety and he loves it, it is within my budget costing£8.50p it as also done my dog's skin the world of good. I can reccomend either of the above complete dog foods.
Have you looked on www.allaboutdogfood.co.uk/the-dog-food-directory If you go to their advanced search you can put your budget, size of dog etc into a search engine and will give a list of possible foods. You can also investigate each of the ingredients and what they mean. There are lots of decent foods on the market.
I agree, allaboutdogfood was great when I was looking for a new food. Recommendations from others are good but it is all opinion and what suits one dog might not suit another The site allows you to take your budget and individual dog into consideration, and shows you a detailed description of the ingredients
Alfie was on James Wellbeloved but I am in the process of switching him over to Purizon, all is going well so far.
It is very difficult faced with so many brands and types.Skip was on the J.W.B. kibble with a little moist food added as he wont eat dry food.He had a couple of anal gland problems,needing them emptying by the vet,which he found painful,so changed to J.W.B. Turkey/Lamb & Vegetable Kibble,it is cereal free and contains chondroitin,glucosamine and herbs.He has been fine since changing to this.It is very slightly more expensive than the other,and is in a green striped foil pack.I usually stock up when P.A.H. do their two for one or three for two offers,making it even cheaper. I never buy large sacks of food as I don't have space where temperature doesn't fluctuate,so wouldn't risk it going off.

I feed Burns to my dog, and have been doing since he was a puppy. He has always been a very healthy and fit little dog, and has always enjoyed eating his food. Of course its a personal decision. I continued the feeding that Earl's breeder was carrying out before the pups left - so it was kind of easy for us. But in other cases, I'm guessing its just trial and error a little bit, but make any changes gradual.
