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.

Most of their stuff I think they are trying to rile people up (especially by their lack of saying they aren't), but I do believe they probably are really passionate about Annamaet as there are a lot of people, mainly in the mushing world, who are huge advocates of this food, and they are actually bringing up straight facts in regards to it. Cool, I'll talk facts about dog food. In these posts (the two above) I think it is just merely pointing out opinions and positive aspects of Annamaet.

Annamaet isn't sold in every state and there's no sites free shipping it. Cheapest I've seen Salcha for is a little under $70, not including shipping, and that's their pork formula which I don't prefer to feed pork unless it's straight raw meat. I like Aqualuk- I had tried a small bag before, but to pay $80 + shipping is a lot for kibble (and I will note that I would never again pay that price for Orijen either as I really don't think Orijen is worth the price at all). It's also a bummer for their GF foods they only have those 3 formulas. A lot of dogs can't handle beef or fish, so it would help their case a lot if they produced more GF kibbles that have proteins that are easier on those with sensitive stomachs or allergies.

I do like Annamaets foods. My dog sledding mentor used their foods in addition to feeding raw. I have tried the Aqualuk before, and was happy with. But you are right Heather, the issue is finding a dealer that sells it. Most people I knew bought in bulk, mainly because they were feeding a kennel of 15+ dogs. I knew a lot of mushers who ordered it when I lived in WI, so I could always find someone to order it for me, but have had no luck since I moved. Also would like to see a wider variety of grain free foods. Big fan of their glycocharge supplament as well.

Did some research today and FYI Melissa, PetFoodStation has it and free shipping. Aqualuk is $81 but not really that much more expensive after taxes than what I was feeding.
