Hello,
I currently feed my dog (GSP) Diamond but I'm tired of the runs. He'll have one solid and then the rest is slush. Also I had 2 dogs at the same time before and didn't have as much clean up as I do now.
I'm basically looking for a dog food that minimize waste and comes out a solid. Any brand recommendation?
I'm really not concerned about the price as long as it does what it's supposed to do.
Thanks...

I use Science Diet with great results. Dog usaly goes one time a day unless hunting or training/running activites. I also have a GSP.

I feed my GSP's Purina Pro Plan Salmon for sensitive skin and stomach. The first time I opened a bag of it, I could immediately smell the difference. My dogs are both 10 years old. They have been on the Purina formula for 6 years. They have the energy of pups. I am 100% convinced the food has changed my dogs quality of life. By the way, poop solid as a rock:-) it comes at a price. $44 for 37lbs.

Been using this for 10-12 years... Very pleased with the results.

Purina one pro plan any of the flavors I like to feed the lamb and rice. Such a difference between the quality and ingredients. Your going to pay more for it but it's worth every penny.

I feed Sportsmans Pride and haven't had any problems with it. Purina Pro plan is a very good food as well I just can't afford it.

Squeaks,
Running a kennel as I do firm stools are important to me. There can be lots of causes, including the feed, but one for you to consider is over feeding. That will give you the exact condition that you are dealing with.

I have been feeding the Purina Pro Plan chicken and rice for about 3 years now, and I won't be switching to anything else. Dogs look great and there is a lot less clean up than I had with the diamond.

That's interesting... I had tried Diamond Naturals Extreme Athlete, the older dog was fine with it, the younger would leave a runny trail. He's not a big eater, she's a pig (she'd eat gravel if it had a little broth poured on it). I did notice the piles were bigger than those from the equivalent amount of Purina Pro Performance. Perhaps it's quite a bit richer feed, requiring less. I may have to try it again some day.
