What do you mainly feed your dog nowadays ?

I wonder would it be useful to see in a poll how feeding our dogs has changed over time. This poll asks what we are mainly feeding our dogs today.

Please say if there is an option missing in the poll and I'll happily add it. Thanks in advance to all who vote.

Good thread. Please could you add dry plus home made? Also, should dry be split into dry kibble/dry cold pressed?
Just that some people use cold pressed/raw.
Your post and comments may be helpful to others. Please remember to update your thread. Feedback to the forum is appreciated.

Thanks Dottie, I've attempted to add your suggestions, yet due to an unexpected error (believed to be linked to moving the site onto a secure server) this was unsuccessful. I've made David aware and will make the changes asap.

I tried to add mine but got a fatal error message. I just saw Dottie's post and mine fits in more with those suggestions so I will hang on until the bugs are sorted.

For this poll I've used  "Dry complete" for all dry complete foods as consistent with the current allaboutdogfood food searches. 

[I'm thinking about the possibility of another poll .....  for more detailed & various ways that dry food is prepared/ cooked/ processed eg  cold pressed, baked, extruded, muesli, air dried if that would be useful later - let's see how this one goes first]

My option would be  Mostly dry complete +some raw food + wet food complete .  I decided to vote for Mostly dry complete +wet food complete.

 Sorry ofs I hadn't appreciated the combination of 3 'types' of food in the poll - dry +raw +wet now added. Hopefully you might remove your vote from dry+wet and please vote again?

Thanks for letting me know - just checked the options and it looks like the "revote" option was not checked for the poll......apologies  ::)
David sorry to bother you, when you have time  can you please use admin Permissions & change this poll's permissions to "allow users to change vote".
Once this has been done you'll be able to withdraw the vote & revote.........
