Tell us about yourself: I'm Keith, 28 years old born and raised outside Chicago. I adopted Duke, the Dutch Shepherd from a Chicago foster based rescue. Duke had an unfortunate first 2 months of his upbringing but he's been a prince around here ever since.

Healthy, happy, energetic, and super social.

I switched from Blue, to Wellness core, I always felt that as a brand gets bigger because of marketing, the quality tends to slack because now everybody is looking at their numbers

I don't think they've had a single recall on kibble. It's only been the canned stuff. I feed Blue. I might switch to Merrick though-I looked into it and found that for just a few bucks more/bag I can have it delivered. I've never had a problem with Blue kibble. My big girl has been eating it for a decade.

I believe you're right about the kibble. It's excellent stuff, I know. Of course after reading something sometime or another I let it dictate that this is the reason Duke was overly excessively drinking water, blah blah blah. I will say his coat does appear much more silky smooth with this wellness core. You are what you eat ^_^


never understood how people could spend 13.99 on a 22lb bag and feed it to their dogs. His huge bag might cost nearly $70 but it last about a month. $2.30 a day to feed quality, a dollar a meal, woooo big deal. People get hung up on the price tag, break it down

I look at Rogue this way, She is my Lamborghini. I would never put junk in my Lamborghini, therefore I would never buy junk dog food for my dog. Its ok to spend money on quality food.
