Aye we feed it too.

We all chuck in, 3 of us and get around 100 3lb blocks every blue moon. £0.60p a block.

Just defrost 1 block when I need it, which usually last my 3 dogs a week between them. I also feed Eukanuba with it, which I know i shouldnt, terrier mix would be better suited.
Without commitment, you'll never start but more importantly, without consistency, you'll never finish.

They only a little bit each on their meals once a day, the Eukanuba is a complete food in itself.

When its semi-frozen I get the saw on it, and cut it like sliced pepperoni, about half a cm thick and each dog will get one of them.

They do well on it.

It's Platinum Performance in the Professional range - German Pointer on the bag? There's about ten products all called "Professional" ;) Available in pet shops and online as Working and Endurance, same feed slightly different bag

Ah, that's just the standard large breed chicken adult food then sold in 18kg bags as "professional" vs the 15kg retail sacks - easily bought in pet stores if Strathcraig wants to try it. Most triallers feeding Eukanuba seem to plump for the Platinum Performance version with a bit more protein and fat
