Hello Everyone,

I have a 15 week old Standard Poodle puppy. Her name is Leila. She is my first Standard.....I have 2 Toy Poodles, Libra and Lacey. I'm not sure which dog food to use for her. Since she will be much larger than I am use to, I am just concerned about her coat. Please give me any recommendations on what other standard poodle owners feed their puppies/doggies. Thank you.

Welcome, I feed Blue Buffalo as of recent. And its going well. There will be much discussion on this one so listen to what fits your dogs for health and coat. This is how I determined changing mine and it was very helpful.

We use Blue Buffalo. It's a good quality food for a reasonable price. I also like Wellness Core's ingredients. There are some others but we don't have places that carry them here. I think EVO has quality ingredients and I like Chicken Soup puppy formula.

I feed Mister Orijen (grain free) and some raw and bones....he loves it and seems healthier.
My senior mutt dog and my older Chihuahua get Natural Balance Venison and Sweet potato which is grain free.
I believe that dogs dont need grains and it just complicates things and gives them allergies.

My dogs have been a lot healthier and happier since i put them on grain free foods.

I feed Purina One, have for years, it is the very same formula as Purina Pro Plan except instead of including the fat in the food they spray the food with the fat. I attended a recent seminar called Puppy Puzzle given by Pat Hastings. She recommended this food as well as feeding the Adult formula rather then they puppy formula.

I Feed Purina One to my two Toy Poodles and they have done great with it, the oldest is 14 yrs old. I just wasn't sure if it would be okay for my Standard, since she will be much larger and have a larger coat. I am just so confused this time around....I get differenet answers from different people at PetSmart at different locations. Right now she is eating Purnia One mixed with Purina Pro Plan and I got some Eukanuba. She is eating everything I give her, I just want to find the best one for her. :smile:

I have used many different brands but I ended up with Purnia. All my dogs seem to love it. I also had a judge say that what ever I was feeding my Noir to keep it up. She commented on her having a very nice coat.

I also feed a grain-free food, Taste of the Wild, Pacific Stream. I'm thinking about switching to Natural Balance though, b/c the TOTW makes the dogs smell REALLY fishy! Otherwise, it's a great food.

Dogs don't need grains. More grain = more poo b/c it goes undigested. Corn is especially bad for dogs and is in most of the cheaper foods (sometimes the number 1 ingredient! :mffad:), and even some of the more expensive ones,, like Eukanuba and Royal Canin. I believe that all Purina products also have corn in them. Corn is simply a filler.

My guys get a "mixed bag" of the feeding world and are exposed to all kinds of food. :) Depending on what I currently have in the house their feeding is something like this:

morning they either get 50% kibble (usually Evo or Orijens or Taste of the Wild) mixed with 50% raw ground meat or cooked meat whatever I have. In the evening they get fed strictly raw, either turkey wings, or turkey necks, or turkey backs. My little havanese gets chicken necks or chicken wings or chicken backs. They ar happy on this diet, love variety and seem to be able to handle most any foods.
