I have been feeding The Honest Kitchen Preference and adding raw turkey, beef or chicken for the protein. Leo is doing really well on this diet. I will probably try adding some other items like eggs, sardines, blueberries, some more veggies in the coming weeks.

I feed Darwin's Natural raw to Rory

Rory gets Darwin's Natural raw food. They deliver nationwide, and Rory likes and does well on it. It's very affordable and the convenience can't be beat.

I feed my little Bear Ziwipeak, it's basically air dried raw meat with added vitamins and good stuff. Unfortunately, she's pretty fussy but she LOVES Ziwipeak. Her fav is Lamb & Venison. I also give her raw chicken wings, tuna, raw meaty bones. She also likes munching on carrots which I thought was a little odd!
Here's the link for Ziwipeak: http://www.ziwipeak.com/air-dried-do...dried-cuisine/
It rates 5 stars on Dog Food Advisor so that's pretty good.

I feed mine raw and sometimes a bit of Ziwipeak; the raw is a 'prepared' one (I worry about my ability to get all the right ingredients together in the right ratios, and honestly don't at the moment have enough hours in the day) from a wonderful company called Wolf Tucker, but I think they only operate in the UK. I've tried the BARF company, too, who do great treats but I find the meals mostly too sloshy and mushy. They love the BARF green tripe but I have to be in strong mode to face the truly gruesome smell of it!! Orijen have just brought out an air-dried raw, haven't tried it yet but their kibble scores well on the kibble front - I personally don't like it because I don't like feeding kibble, but it's certainly one of the better ones, and their air-dried raw might be worth checking out, I think. They do very good air-dried treats, too.

Has anyone tried Carna4 dog food? It is suppposed to be an alternative to raw, but more convenient. I tried some with my pomeranian and she is doing very well on it, so I am transitioning Lilly to it. I like that there are no added vitamins or minerals to it - everything is in there naturally and it exceeds the requirements. My dogs love it! It looks like a kibble, but it is not extruded and cooked at high heat like kibble, it is baked at low temperatures to preserve all of the natural enzymes and nutrients. It is a little expensive, but I think it will be comparable to Honest Kitchen.

Here's a review that's worth having a look at:

For me, I wouldn't want to go with a kibble anyway, but if that's the most practical then this does seem to be a good one, on the face of it; I'm not hugely impressed by the high carb load, but others may be less carb-phobic!
