Summer festivals will be here before you know it, which means that I need to start thinking of a gift basket to raffle off to dog lovers and I love to include our favorite dog food brands.  Feeding three dogs isn’t always easy.  We’ve spent a lot of time researching dog food brands to find a formula that works for all three of our dogs.  We suspect that Rodrigo is allergic to chicken; removing chicken formulas (like Life’s Abundance) from his diet alleviated the obsessive paw licking (whew!).  He also has a sensitive stomach, so he inspired us to seek out quality, holistic dog food brands.

Today, we happily feed our dogs food from two different quality dog food brands.  Halo, Purely for Pets Spot’s Stew kibble.  I think these along with our favorite treats would make a great gift basket.  What do you think?

Update: Starting April 2013, we switched our dogs to a raw food diet.  This post has been updated to remove treats that we no longer feed to our dogs.

Halo Pets Original Spot’s Stew | Wild Salmon, Wholesome Lamb

Our dogs love their Halo Pets kibble.  Every other brand we’ve tried, we’ve had to doctor it up a bit to get the dogs to eat it, not Halo Pets.  A 28 pound bag costs $60 at Petco and lasts one month with our three dogs.  I buy from Petco, because we earn points through the Pet Pals membership towards a $5 coupon with each purchase.  I’ve been earning $10 a month that offsets their food.
