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 fed all life stages food to my girls specifically Acana and Taste of the Wild. I don't see the need to feed sibes large breed puppy food, unless the breeder is breeding sibes WAY over the breed standard. They aren't supposed to get very tall at all. I see the need for it with Great Danes. A lot of great dane people won't even feed puppy food. They just go straight to adult formula.

But why, if Siberians are a medium breed? They don't have the growth issues large breeds do.m

I never said Sibes were large breed dogs. My vet never said they were a large breed dog. The breeder never said they were large breed dogs.

I said they recommended large breed puppy food for Raven.

I'm curious to know, have they explained their reasons for recommending a large breed puppy food to a medium size dog with no expectation of reaching a large breed size? I'd really like to know.
