I tried this on the of chance but like many other brands it gave my labrador diarrhea he's fine on raw but commercial dog food gives him the trots raw is way too expensive for me at the minute so looking for a dry food that agrees with him I've tried this, orijen, wainwright's and a few others now trying aatu hopefully 🤞

Moved onto this from wainwrights as it's so much cheaper. Only £25 for a 15kg bag from our local farm shop and so far doesnt seem to be any problems. The carb content is high but we mix with high quality tinned or fresh fresh or tripe in each meal as we have always done so that brings the balance back up. Energy levels are good and poop is just the same as wainwrights. There is some swelling up in the food when dropped in water. A test I always do with having a deep chested dog as bloat is something to be aware of. But not too much. Doubled in size in 24 hours. Wainwrights and royal canin are the only ones so far I've found that dont swell up in water at all.

Hi i also wrote a review once on swelling of dog food and I like it to swell as if it didn't a deep chested breed as I have Gsds also suffer with the potential to Gastric torsion/ bloat and I believe the harder the food to digest basically the harder the kibble the longer it festers in the dogs gut & doesn't digest in a good enough time before their next walk. So I pre soak the food for ours and too mash in some good quality wet food or chicken breast to the skinners.
Once the kibble has softened it is good to eat with a quicker digestion rate compared to hard like bullets kibble.
I tried mole valley kibble and to my horror I soaked it for an hour and it did not dissolve AT ALL I was horrified as this is sold to working dogs on the go so I called them to inform them it's not good it doesn't break down at all so how long is it stored festering in the poor dogs belly Not to mentioned how much water does the dog have to drink as a result of eating bullet biscuits ??? Not good .
A digestible food that is more soft when in water is much more gentle on the digestion and as long as you keep to the rule of don't feed for a couple of hours before or After a walk or feed too much in one go in their bowls and keep to a minimum of 2 meals a day you should be fine followed by a big burp wind them patting them gentle on their backs like a baby works 😄 better gas out than in haaa
So to sum it up personally as I've lost a shepherd to torsion I would not purchase bullet type kibble that doesn't like breaking down easy.
I found when the kibble varietys like burns/ skinners / vitalin chicken & potatoes/ jw food I've fed does soften it actually breaks up very easy in your fingers if you squish it which says to me it's very digestible unlike the ones wainwrights etc as you mentioned .
We all learn something all the time in dog food topics it's very interesting subject but does cause a bit of a stirr amongst people as all have their own thoughts of what suits their dogs so I generally keep out of the dog food discussions 😄
But as you mentioned kibble density & bloat I felt I had to put my view over as well as felt it was hopefully helpful.
Also if you feed a lot of wet food or fresh cooked or uncooked meat I found the wonderfully wheat free mixer laughing dog 10 kg £20 is very suitable for sensitive bellys & absorbs the moisture from the added meats & vegg nicely as I do alternate from the dry complete as my male shepherd older now so it helps with keeping his weight good & my 2 yr old shepherd bitch is more on the skinners complete or one of the above varietys I mentioned .
Kind regards

I fed my 3 Dalmatians on this hoping to find a cheaper alternative to Millies Wolfheart. Dalmatians are quite sensitive to their food and environment. I have previously tried James Wellbeloved, Wainwrights, Step Up to Naturals, Autarky, Dr John. etc. Most of those caused skin issues and/or loose stools. I thought this food with very simple and hypoallergenic ingredients would be a good choice, but unfortunately 4 months of being on this food we had skin problems and loose stools. Dalmatians also need to avoid high purine diets, so yeast, game/wild meat, and some fish also have to be avoided.

I have fed my Black Lab Skinners Field and Trial, Duck and Rice since she was 1. She loves it. Her coat is beautiful and shiny, her casting is not bad compared with other labs I have witnessed, her breath is not smelly, her teeth are clean, white and beautiful, poo is formed and regular (twice daily), energy level is great with no hyperactivity and no digestive problems. I give her tinned sardines twice weekly as a treat and for her joint health (i am paranoid she gets joint problems as I have had to have my own hips replaced) lol. She also gets titbits of chicken and occasionally red meat. This is a very good food, excellent price and I am always harping on to my friends about it. Try it. You will be glad you did.

I have fed Skinners food for many years to Labradors, Border Terrier and now an Irish Setter and cannot find fault with it. All my dogs have plenty of energy without being OTT, even the Setter!!, their coats are shiny and stools firm and they do not suffer with 'wind'. My Setter flatly refused to eat the brand of food she was brought up on when she changed to the adult menu but she had no problem with changing her to Skinners. Highly recommended, excellent value for money

Excellent food and a fabulous price. Good quality keeps my springer happy, bouncy and active. Without him bouncing off the walls and having pent up energy. He can be out all day and never falters but equally can wait for a walk. Stools are good! & he eats it well. I buy it from Fetch.com at a great price. Highly recommended x

I was recommended this food by a neighbour who has a spaniel pup with the most amazing shiny coat. I have a gsd x collie who eats anything and an 11 month old saluki x whippet who is a bony ball of energy with a funny tummy. Cheap supermarket food made the older dog sluggish and the younger one itchy and his coat fall out. Really rich, premium food gave the saluki the squits. They were on JWB for a few months but feeding 2 x 19kg dogs on that all the time was getting expensive. Looked at Skinners on here before I bought it and was really surprised to see that Skinners has all the same good/green ingredients as JWB but not the 2 red ones that JWB does. It's also half the price! Both of the dogs love the food, I have to feed the gsd slightly less than recommended as she doesn't run around a lot and the higher fat content meant she started to lose her waistline. I feed the saluki slightly more to accommodate his crazy running and high energy levels. No more itching, no more coat loss, the gsd's coat has gone lovely and shiny and she seems less stiff on her legs too. Saluki x is still growing nicely and putting weight on, both dogs love the food and clear their bowls. Cannot recommend this food enough.

My Border Collie was having a lot of problems with constipation and diarrhoea when he was a pup. Was feeing him on Purina Beta Puppy to begin with then added JWB fish and rice. Eventually changed him onto Skinners Duck/Salmon and rice when he reached a year old. He is now on this gluten free Skinners now and doing brilliantly. No more stomach problems, poops exactly normal and regular, his coat is a dream and he is a fit as a fiddle. I do give him Salmon oil and then Wheat germ oil once a week as well - but he is in great condition. Thank you Skinners - no more stomach problems!!!!!

Just wondering why you feed gluten free but then add Wheatgerm? If you think your dog needs a gluten free diet, try adding sunflower oil or codliver oil instead. If fish is an issue you could try Naff ‘I can’t believe it’s not Codliver oil’.
Wheatgerm contains the protein (the bit that causes allergies) found in wheat.

I have an adopted a 16 year old lurcher, who has had lots of digestion problems. burns alert settled him, but he left lots of it and lost weight. I changed to skinners turkey, and he gained condition. My 3yr old whippet lurcher was on JWB and i changed her to Skinners Duck & Rice with no problems. Great hypoallergenic food. Great price, and can be found cheaper with 'Fetch'.

Skinners is the only food I will feed my working ESS dog's. Duck and Rice out of season and Working 23 during the shooting season. Nothing extra need be added bar love.

I have 7 dogs and feed them all on Skinners (salmon, duck or turkey) and they are all great on it. One of my dogs is a large hound (rescue from Cyprus) and had terrible digestion problems till I put him on this food. Its a great food and not expensive either. It costs me just £20 per week to feed all 7 of my dogs.

I have a 9 month old Lurcher ( mostly Greyhound) X German Wirehaired Pointer. I currently feed her Specific Large/Giant Puppy ( vet recommended) which suits her well but is very expensive and she has VERY smelly farts! Want to change and this sounds great but will I be OK putting her on an adult food at this age?

Skinners do advertise that it is 9 months to adult . . .

I feed my four-year-old labrador on Skinners, either Duck or Salmon, and she's had the same food since she was around 12 weeks old. She's always had good digestion and lovely shiny coat, clear skin and eyes. Skinners gives her good energy levels, but she can also relax fully with no hyperactivity. I would definitely recommend this food to other dog owners.

I feed my three dogs on this & I'm happy with the results. Finding a brand I could trust proved to be more difficult than I imagined. Two of my dogs are Great Danes, & initially, my reason for choosing this was the fat & protein content.
We had tried many different brands, including costly Science Plan recommended to us by our vet but non suited our dogs until we came across this.
Their coats are thick & shiny, they are in great shape & they never leave a crumb!
I recommend Skinners Duck & Rice to all my friends.
