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.

I'm kind of in a trilemma Smile between these 3 dog foods, can you point what's better and also tastes better for dogs, mine is kind of a picky one..

I'm considering ACANA , EARTHBORN Holistic, or CANIDAE..

been reading that they are all great so don't know which one to chose from..

Hmmm, have you tried any of them out on your sibe yet? If not, I'd recommend giving all three a shot to see which one agrees with your sibes tummy the best.

I don't have any personal experience with the three you havce mentioned above, but I do know that Acana is produced by the same company that Orijen is (Champion Pet Foods) which is highly regarded in the husky / mal communities.

Acana rated 5 Stars (of 5)

Earthborn- grain free 5 star, regular kibble stuff 4 star

Canidae- regular kibble 4 star, grain free 5 star, and a few others but mostly 4-5 star rated

I've fed Canidae previously but found mine liked Taste of the Wild- (Salmon) better. The other two have never tried but as stated above Acana is highly recommended by people in this forum.

The order you have them listed already would be my personal order of preference.

I don't think anyone can tell you what tastes better. First, (hopefully) none of us has ever tasted them. Second, dogs, just like people, will have different taste preferences.

Thank you all for your answers,

I haven't tried feeding any of the food to my sibe but he can't stand totw, so I've been feeding him some cheaper foods that he ate.. But now I'm gonna go with ACANA and see how he likes it..

Thanx everyone for helping me choose

I tried the Canidea with Neo before. I wasn't impressed with quality of the can food. I opened it and it was mostly that jelly stuff that likes to float to the top. Neo wouldn't touch it.

Canidae is actually a veterinary food; they have a variety of "prescription" diets. I'm not a fan either.

Canidae comes in both regular (grain free, grain inclusive, and limited ingredient) diets as well as prescription/veterinary diets. I'm not a Canidae fan either but some of their regular diets are not bad by any means.
