    Same as most dogs really mate, the best you can afford.

    I personally feed him <<<<< Chicken mince mixed with a bit of cat food, biscuit, rice or pasta with a bit of ox liver every now and then and he`s the strongest, fittest and fastest Beagle I`ve seen lol.

    If you love him then give him tinned meat, a dog hates nothing more than dried food

    Dry food is best, but you need to mix it with something appetizing. Dog meat, fish, egg yolks
    as dry can be very bland.

    If your dog is going to be an indoor dog, avoid dog meat as it is ruthless for gas and genral bad dog fart smells

    We pay around £8 a week tops mate but obviously to feed the above to a Rottie would be considerably more.
    Bones wise I only ever give him hambones, never any poultry bones but I do know quite a few people who know their stuff who do and can understand their logic to a certain degree but I`d rather steer clear.


    Ps, like The Kid says, fish and eggs/egg yolks every now and again is good, I often give him sardines or egg yolks when I make an omelette.

    Totally agree if I put my dogs on tinned food I would need to remortgage my home. In addition to this Dry is so easy to store I get 5 bags and stick them in a sealed container.

    Plus it doesnt go off as soon as you leave it in their bowl for a couple of hours

    1x 15kg lasts about 11 days

    try a a range of different foods and see how he/she reacts to it!
    dogs are like us in respect of each having different levels of digestive system, mine has a sensitive tummy so i feed him on dry sensitive food he has big roasty bones to keep his teeth healthy and treats too. i have had mine on meats and fresh food but most were too rich for him although he loved it, its a case of trial and error, good luck

    Its puzzles me really as the Bullmastiff will eat anything and just does not react well to bones. It could be the marrow is to rich , never thought of that.

    What I get for treats is Pigs Liver its about 40p in any supermarket and is pretty good for them to.
