I was curious Bathel, I know you mentioned using fromm, have you had experience with holistic select? They came out with a new grain free blend, here's a link to it:
Holistic Select Grain-Free Adult & Puppy Health Salmon, Anchovy & Sardine Meal Recipe Dry Dog Food
Curious your thoughts on it
I don't have any experience with that product, but I don't have any issues with the ingredients listed. Looks like a high quality food. However, for the price I would still use the Merrick Grain Free as it has a slightly better ingredient list at the same or a bit lower price. Having said that... if the Holistic brand works well with your pup, I wouldn't blink an eye on keeping using that.
I've used Acana, Orijens, Fromms, Merrick, AvoDerm, BlueBuffalo, Taste of the Wild, Wellness and EVO. My favorite as a company is Orijen/Arcana (champion pet foods)... but unfortunately my girl had some strong gas on both. Her coat was the nicest and stools the firmest on Orijen 6 fish, but I couldn't stand the gas. For that, Fromm and Merrick have been the best. I rotate between the two to keep my little girl interested as she get's board with one brand/flavor quickly. Of the two, Merrick seems to be my favorite and hers...
