Feed your dog Orijen or Acana. Merricks is not bad either. The ones you named are all garbage. You can also cook your dog some brown rice with boiled chicken (no bone very important) and give It to him once a week with his food he will LOVE YOU for it. TRUST ME. You can also buy low salt chicken broth and cook it with some brown rice and carrots and give it to him! Do not give your dog grapes, chocolate, bones, Avacado, Bread dough, Nuts, Onions and garlic, VERY dangerous.

stop feeding Beneful.  this is like feeding a toddler nothing but candy.

make sure he is clear of all medical problems – take him to the vet, discuss your concerns with your vet.  then start training.  does he have a crate, and is he comfortable in it?  feed him in the crate…and follow Julie’s instructions.  just make sure he’s clear of any medical problems first.

Beneful has been the cause of numerous pet deaths. are you sure you want to continue feeding it?

Karen, if you take 30 second to do some research, you’d see what i mean. here is but one example: http://www.forthepeople.com/class-action-lawyers/purina-beneful-dog-food-deaths/ i wouldn’t feed any of those foods to my dog. read the labels of each food you’ve mentioned – every one of them has corn as a staple ingredient, because corn is a cheap filler. as a result, you have to feed more of it so your dog feels satisfied. corn is not something that dogs can really digest, so why feed it? there are better foods out there. you don’t have to go full grain free like some… Read more »

read the labels, Karen. corn should not be the first 2 ingredients – that should be meat.

if you can buy it in Walmart, don’t. go to Petsmart/Petco or look online at a website like Chewy.com. i’m told Victor is a decent mid-range food, and people seem pretty happy with it. as it has less fillers than the brands you’ve listed, you’d feed less of it than you would Beneful.

Firstly, no dogs don’t go on hunger strikes their reasoning doesn’t go that far! Its a bad idea to keep constantly changing your dogs food, this can cause stomach upsets. If your dog is hungry he will eat. Try putting food down for 20 minutes, if he doesn’t eat it pick it up and put food down again at the next mealtime, removing it again after 20 minutes if its not eaten. He will hopefully get the message….if I don’t eat it will disappear. If you have another dog visiting this could be a reason hes not eating, hes a… Read more »

We are only trying to help you…..which is why you came to the site in the first place? Laura obviously has vast experience and knows the food you are feeding is not a good one. I live in the UK and we don’t have it here, but there are others just as bad. My advice would be not to feed them, as Laura has advised you.

Look for one that has the first two ingredients as meat. I personally can’t advise you as I’m in the UK and we have different brands…plus I one of those who don’t feed grain at all. My dogs are raw fed because one has Pancreas problems and it was the best food i could find for him…he also has crystals in his bladder if I’m not careful so needs a Low Fat Low Purine food.  Do some research on the internet as Laura suggested….look at the ingredients of each food.  Try to keep protein level down too as it can… Read more »
