    Thanks for posting. I've feed Blue Buffalo based solely on their claims of "all natural, no by-products etc. If they are in fact lying I hope they get what they deserve.

    I suspect you are not the only one.
    "Force fetch isn't about retrieving as much as it is conditioning a dog to handle pressure, in a very controlled environment. It's about putting a dog in the position of having to figure out how to turn off pressure by finding the correct response. This translates into numerous areas in training." Sharon Potter.

    Even the best dog foods are only by-products of every meat packing operation. The stuff humans won't buy goes into dog food.

    Blue Buff is a marketing company, not a manufacturer. Purina is a manufacturing company that uses marketing to sell its foods. Both brands are guilty of over hyping their products.

    Dr. Tim will tell you that different grades of Meat Meals can be purchased for use in Pet Food. Fresh "meats" are just skin, organs, and the gastrointestinal tracks / maybe tongues in some cases. No company can produce a food with the cuts of meat you and I find in the supermarket. You and I would not pay $10.00 a pound for kibble. It would be cheaper to home cook. Kibble is made for pennies a pound. Each layer of middlemen, advertising cost, shipping, make up most of what you are paying for.

    I've had several client dogs over the past couple years come in being fed blue buffalo stuff... Boy they crap A LOT!!!!! I cant get them off that stuff fast enough I feed out the bag and switch them to diamond natural (what i feed) and almost the next day they are only crapping 1-2 times and its finally piles not blobs!!

    No such thing in the dog food world! Marketing scheme as 44 said

    I love when people get all worked up over dog food brands and the ingredients. Your talking about an animal that will literally eat a pile of sh!t for fun. Give em the nutrients they need, and move on to more important things in life.
