    I'm sure you know Jerry Moore if your feeding it. It is mixed at Arkat and is a very similar formula to Arkat's Large Breed Adult or Hunter's Edge.
    Are you feeding it? Whats your thoughts compared to what you have fed in the past?

    I like others better.I tried to feed it once and my dogs had the runs.It can be hard to find,they only carry it at Bass Pro and some Academy's.I also had a bad deal with owner and he didnt come through with his part of deal with me and a firend of mine.If you try it and it works for you then that great,I dont think it is a bad food at all just didnt work great for me.

    The breeder of my now 10 wk old ylf was feeding her 50/50 Puppy Chow/ Extreme Dog Fuel. He was very pleased with what he was seeing in all his dogs. There is a dealer close by and I am not opposed to feeding it. I don't think I want to feed it exclusively. Right now I am feeding all Puppy Chow and plan to transition to Purina Pro Plan large breed puppy. Trying to do a little research before making a decision.

    All input is appreciated.

    ANYTHING is better than puppy chow.why does he feel a need to mix the 2? if your going to pro plan you will never need or want to go to EDF unless you are just wanting to spend less but ran as fast as you can from puppy chow.

    I have fed Extreme Dog Fuel for three or four years and am very pleased with it. Dogs look good and look like they feel good and have good stamina, glossy coats and firm, low volume stools. At about half the price of other premium foods, it's a real deal. Made from all the right stuff, too. My daughter's Shitzu-Yorkie mix eats it too and loves it! It's a good product from good people.

    if you look at the ingredients chicken By Products are #1 and ground corn in #4. I always thought those were something you didnt want in the first 5. I know one is worse than the other as far as by products and meal but cant remember which was worse.I dont know much about ingredients and I am probably wrong bt would like to know what others think.

    Chicken byproduct meal provides the best nutritional value. Unlike chicken meal, by-product meal contains viscera, but does not contain feathers, beaks, and feet. Viscera is the heart, liver, kidneys, and intestines of the chicken.

    Honestly, I thought Extreme Dog Fuel was a supplement to add to my commercial brand dog food. Not a complete dog food.

    While it may be super dog food, I 'm sticking with Purina Pro Plan Large Breed Adult for my 4 yo ylf and Large Breed Puppy for the 10 wk old ylf.

    Thank you to all for "food for thought"

    We also have fed Extreme Dog Fuel - dogs did fantastic on it and their coats are fantastic. In the Austin (TX) area.... you can get the food at any Academy Sporting Goods Store.
