What is everyone’s option or experience with Eukanuba’s Premium Performace or Retriever brand. I’m current giving my 1.5 yr Eukanuba Adult 1+ Large Breed. Is this more marketing than anything?

Like every other Eukanuba product, it's essentially junk. Way too much corn in it for my liking and for the money you could spend on this "so-so" food, you could feed something much higher quality like Diamond Naturals or Taste of the Wild.

I agree, however the abundance of corn alone is enough to question the quality of this particular food. Corn has no nutritional value to dogs and is simply a filler. Why feed your dog fillers that just get passed through and may cause gastrointestinal distress in the meantime??????? Doesn't make sense!

I feed my dogs the rachel ray nutrish. Also look up Taste Of the Wild. They are grain free and different blends are good for high energy dogs. There is a high plains kind of the TOW for puppies too. Just a word of advice when going from the high corn food to the other is usually going to upset your dogs stomach. as with changing any dog food. just blend it with the old until its fully switched to the new.
