Silly me, I was sitting her thinking "I cant do this, my dog would have that quarter up on my bed or on the couch..."
Crate- great and obvious idea And we have one! You'd think I would have thought of that.

Thank you! I have been thinking about doing the BARF diet for my dog.
But found out the food that I am feeding him (and the cats the cat version) gets 6 stars!

I chose Taste of the Wild before seeing the site's analysis of it too. I was glad I made a good choice!

Re: Paleo for dogs!

Our puppy eats Orijen large puppy formula (and so does the cat, although he eats the cat stuff)... he about flips over at feeding time (although he is a lab and would probably flip over for anything).

It smells good, and I think I would actually eat it in a pinch!

We do some raw stuff, but even though dogs are better at handling the bacteria I still worry about salmonella etc...

Re: Paleo for dogs!

Hey guys.

I'm getting a pitbull puppy today (8 weeks old) & don't want to feed it any conventional meat.

I already have a bag of the Orijen Puppy stuff, but now was thinking of avoiding any kibble to begin with & starting it raw from Day 1.

Would grass fed ground beef be ok in the beginning? And I'll get a few pasture raised whole chickens from the farm next week.

Cool thread. Very excited about the dog. Been wanting one since I was 13.

Got to be careful about the amount of fat in the meat. Dogs digestive systems can't handle the amount of fats that ours can.
