    Many field trial champions have been raised on that dog food. It must do a LOt right.

    Many other working dogs have put on thousands of working miles on other brands of dog food as well.
    Such as RedPaw, Anamaet, Dr.Tim's, Native, Inuksuk , National, Caribou Gold, Victor Nutra Pac, EaglePac just to name a few.

    I tried really hard to buy this product, literally went to the store twice but couldn't bring myself to buy it after reviewing the ingredients... There's just way too much corn mentioned in their for me.

    Lots of different opinions on corn.

    Keep doing your research....no offense, but chicken is the first ingredient ( the highest quantity).

    A lot of Hunting retriever clubs, and field triallers use Pro-plan Sport, as well, many vets have zero issues with the food.

    A little light reading for you:

    Corn or rice are carbohydrates that provide energy but in short bursts. They are also the cheapest fillers. Look for quality fats to provide the energy. Everybody here knows I'm not a fan of PPP, too much corn and cereals in it for my money.
    Iím suspicious of people who don't like dogs, but I trust a dog who doesn't like a person.

    Your absolutely correct... however some varieties of corn are of higher quality and can be beneficial in a dog feed recipe. Unfortunately the price of corn used in many dog food manufacturers recipes are of lower quality because of price point. If you can find a dog food with a tri-meat base as first ingredients such as some of the ones i mentioned earlier you dog will be much better off. These are proven dog feeds that have been tested on extreme athletes such as the Iditarod, Yukon Quest, Beargrease, Wyoming Stage Stop Race, Alpirod etc. These athletes could not perform on a kibble containing corn as one of the main ingredients and would be impossible for them to compete at that level. Anyone thinking they can hasn't a clue what these athletes endure. It's all about high quality protein and high fat quickly being digested and absorbed into the blood stream to be used as energy. Nothing wrong with a field trial dog eating a 30/20 diet containing corn but an extreme athlete such as a sled dog burning thousand of calories during training or racing would literally hit a wall and crash on a diet containing corn as the top ingredient. They would also suffer from stress diarrhea because corn disturbs the digestive tract under working conditions .
