    id say 26/18 is most popular (purple) for working dogs. or yard dogs the blue which is like 22/10. Field trialers I've polled mostly use 30/20 though

    I am in the process of switching from pro plan to Victor. The results are good so far. It is not as easy to find as pro plan in PA but it is cheaper and seems to be a higher quality food.

    The Green Barn In Zelienople. I train with the owner an she recommended this food to me, looks like a good food, fair price. I think Im going to try the Performance with Glucosamine formula

    I'll echo what most are saying. I've been feeding the 24/20 for 3 months and I am very happy with it.

    Two labs on the Yukon River for about 14 months. Both eat it up, never any left.
    Both coats are good and shiny, no stool issues that I've noticed.
    No complaints with Victor here.

    Chessie pup started on TOTW and his stools were constantly loose, switched to Victor(red bag) and he has done fantastic. Switched our old lady to it as well this week and no problems so far.

    I switched to Victor (24/20) 1 month ago and just found a new dealer near our new kennel (I know, a ton of transitions!) our old location was 40 min from a dealer, but now we're 20.. So I switched as soon as I could.

    Stools were firmer/darker almost immediately. All dogs have more energy than before, and coats are good. So far, so good!

    My dealer did get a new distributer and he called asking if I wanted anything different... Has anyone fed both the 24/20 and 30/20? If so, what was the difference? Particularly in the amount you fed and energy level.

    We have been feeding Victor to all our dogs nearly a year. Feed 1/2 less than other brand- Only food that would keep weight on my husband's competitive field pointers. So far very satisfied and reasonable in price. We feed professional (purple bag) and approx $35 with tax per bag.

    I have fed both. I think the energy levels are the same on both. I fed the same amount of both. The only real difference I can see is the color of the bag! I asked my food guy who has a degree from Cornell in nutrition what his opinion was. He told me the 24/20 hands down... that the extra 6% protein was not necessary. I have seen zero fall of in energy or recovery since switching from Euk 30/20. IMO, its just a better food.
