    I will be picking up two male Great Pyr pups this week.

    I feed my indoor dogs Taste of the Wild.

    I was wondering what y'all feed your outdoor LGD's?

    I'd feed them tast of the wild if I could afford it... but at a bit under 50lbs a weeks, we just can't.
    I'm feeding a locally made large breed puppy chow to the LGD pups, along with occasional marrow bones, and, apparently, goat pellet ration as well... [​IMG] they seem to think its desert. my LGDs are about 6 months old and growing well.

    Chicken [​IMG] beef and deer parts, eggs and vegetables out of our garden.

    I live close to a meat processor so on Tuesdays i go and get all the bones i want for my group, keeps um busy when they are young uns and good for their teeth.
    I have 6 grown dogs raised this way and 4 pups coming up now, very pleased with the results.
    Oh and they all eat the chicken food from time to time.

    I, too, found a locally made large breed food and thought about getting it.

    I also, on occasion, make my own dog food when the mood strikes.

    And, zazouse, I'm so jealous of you having the benefit of the meat processor.

    I'm gonna see if there are any near me.
