Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Moved. If your hubby isn't into dog food you can't really force it on him. My hubby just doesn't get it even after years of "lessons" from me. It's just not his thing, he doesn't see why we can't feed Kibbles n Bits. So basically I am in charge of buying dog food and feeding. I tell him why I'm buying what I buy and get the approval for it.

Very good. Perhaps there isn't anything I can really do but the babies need good foodies nonetheless! I am lucky that he does notice a change between good and better food ie less shed, less poo. Perhaps I could list exhaustibly the pros of raw food?

As previously stated, I agree with Val. If someone is not interested in learning, you can't force it. Dog nutrition isn't too interesting to most. Only thing I can suggest is printing out dogfoodanalysis.com's reviews on the foods he thinks are "OK" but are crap and let him see WHY they are crap and let him learn about reading a dog food label and what should be listed and what shouldn't. As for raw, there's books, articles, raw-educating forums.. but once again, someone will little to no interest is not going to take time to read thoroughly into it.
