All breed dog food vs. breed specific dog food

While I don't agree with everything said here, this is an interesting topic.
The basic concept of breed specific nutrition does make some sense.

Just For Fun

Personality tests - fun & enlightening

Try Emode's "What Breed of Dog Are You?" test!
Although, the new version doesn't seem to be as accurate as the old. No matter what I do, it keeps insisting that I'm a Scottie! Sorry, not even close. (Well, maybe just a little.) But it's still fun. I hope you get better results!
Oh, according to the old version, I'm a cross between a Collie and a Pit Bull. (Just one answer's difference between those results.) I'd say that's pretty accurate. ;-)

SitStay Discussion Boards

My favorite place on the internet! It's almost always where you'll find me when I'm online.
There's a place for everyone on the boards, whether you're interested in a particular breed, training, dog sports, health, or whatever. And the people are so friendly and helpful.
You can learn alot just by lurking. Even more if you join in and ask questions.
