I am currently feeding my dog Timberwolf, and except when we brought him home from the kennels, this is the only food he was on. The breeder fed him Diamond, but when we tried that gave him diarrhea.

My husband was talking to our trainer tonight, and she asked what food he was on, and she said that Timberwolf has been running into financial problems, and was trying to find cheaper ingredients. She said have we ever tried switching him to another brand. She is a rep, and feeds her dogs (not labs), Flint River Ranch. Ever hear of this food? Is it any good?

Also to add, I have had issues since we moved finding the timberwolf, I do have one person I can get it from, but I can't always guarentee that she has any.

She's trying to sell you dog food. Of course, she's going to run another brand down. Me personally, I wouldn't feed a food when another rep runs it down. If you think you have problems finding Timberwolf, just wait if you start feeding the FRR. It's only available through distributors or online.

There will be plenty of recommendations from the posters here. Foods that are good and more readily available. I'd listen to the people here who don't have anything to gain over a rep who is trying to sell you their food.

I agree with Labby. FR sells products through distributors similar to Amway, etc.

Diamond Naturals is a great quality food (Large Breed Puppy?). For how long did you feed it, what change-over schedule did you follow?

Gosh, that was over 2 yrs ago. Could of been a number of things that caused the diarrhea, Stress from leaving his littermates, weather....I can't say it was the food. As far as what formula it was, not sure. I just remember her giving us a bunch of samples of it, to get us through till we found some food. We slowly moved over to the timberwolf, and been on it since.

For me, if it isn't broken, don't fix it...and he has done well on the timberwolf. Has a great coat, self regulates on it. Would just be nice to be able to find the food when we need it. I haven't yet called the company, just looked at a few of their reps that carry it in our area, and there is just a couple. The one just has it cause that is what she feeds her dogs.

Thanks for the input, was just curious.

I'm not too familiar with Timberwolf and I don't think I've seen it at any of the stores around here (though I haven't really looked for it, either). From looking at info on a couple sites, it looks to be high quality and has good ingredients.

Abbey is currently on Taste of the Wild (http://www.tasteofthewildpetfood.com/) and I have been able to find that very easily. Also, you can ask your local pet/feed store to find out if they can order it and how much it would be. It is a grain-free product and they have 3 different varieties, all of which Abbey has done pretty well on.

Another brand that I like is Canidae....my guy is on the grain free ALS-5 meat...he doesn't have any allergies but I just like the higher protein for better muscle condition and energy for all the obedience and outdoor stuff that we do.

I also like Eagle Pack and Eagle Pack's Holistic Formula. Take the ingredient content list from your current food and then internet serf to other food manufacturers out there and find something that fits the TimberWolf contents the best.

Happy Food Shopping!!!
