Looking to change dog food for my new lab and old one. What do all of you duck hunters use for your labs?

Try Black Gold, real good for hunting dogs, reasonable price

My rabbit dogs all eat 'Diamond' brand dog food. I get it from Tractor Supply or the feed store. There's a few options too. During the summer, when all they do is lounge around I use the maintanence. When the season rolls around I use the high performance. They seem to like the Lamb and brown rice the best. Good stuff. Don't need to feed them much either. Less going in means less coming out too. Important when u got a bunch of dogs.

I just picked up a bag of Diamond extreme with the high protein for my young energized lab and a bag of lower protein food for my 13 yr old lab. Thanks for the comments, I just read them when I returned from the store but we were on the same page. Thanks!

We tried black gold and others but found the Purina Pro Plan adult shredded chicken and rice is what she likes best, and she is healthy. She would not eat and finish anything else like she does this stuff. Going on two and a half years of feeding this food. She's 5+ a little bit.

I have two labs who have been trained and hunted throughout the country and Canada. Both are HRGC's, great pets and great hunting companions. Throuhgout our travels and training, most professional trainers will recommend Eukanuba. During the hunting season or trial season, I feed Premium Active Performance. The other times, I feed Excel, switching between lamb and chicken blends.

You will also notice the skin and fur of your lab will shine and repeal water more than normal. This is due to the high protein and omega in these formulas.

These products can be purchased at Petco, PetSmart and other quality feed stores.

If for some reason I was unable to buy these products, I would go with Science Diet-Natural!
