I feed my 3 all on Skinners, none of them work :) My 2 Labs are 6 and my cocker is 10 months (on it from 6 months) and they all do brilliantly on it.

They have Field & Trial Duck and Rice :)

jake has been on the working one since he was about 5 months and isn`t a working dog but has done fantastic on it. he gets the field and trial duck and rice hypoallergenic one and i`d highly recommend it. if you go on their site and send them a message they`ll send you out some free samples to help you decide for yourself :)

my lad was on skinners puppy until he was 8months and then went on to crunchy and I have just changed him on to the maintenance food, he s done really well on skinners, he s just been in to be neutered and the vet commented what good condition he was in! He isn t a working dog but has lots of exercise he goes across the fields at least three times a day. I fit dog and one kn......d owner!

We use half Salmon and Rice and half museli mix, and Poppy seems to do pretty well on it.

The only ones I would use are the Field and Trial Salmon & Rice or Duck & Rice as the other varieties all contain wheat and/or maize from what I remember. Skinners were very helpful and sent me free samples, leaflets and a stockist list the next working day after I sent an email.

However, I tried both and went back to Burns as they made Coco looser than usual and I wasn't happy with the higher protein levels as she isn't a working dog. We use Burns Canine Alert now which is VAT free as a working dog food but is aimed at assistance dogs so doesn't need to be so high in protein.

Hi everyone thanks for the comments...we have tried burns preivously but he lost a substantialamount of weight on it.
Have just ordered some salmon and rice so fingers crossed he does well on it :)
