What would you recommend as some of the best Dog foods out there (USA)
I have 2 Boxers, and they eat a lot, which is fine in itself, but they poop
a lot!  That's the problem.

I am looking for a dog food that will meet all their growing needs but lead
to the minimal amount of poop!

The quanity of poop and stink for the most part is geater with the poorer
quality dog foods.  You can start by trying Iams and Science Diet,  We
feed Nutro Max which I like better the other two I mentioned.  There
are others.  Some health food stores stock better dog foods.
Check the contents and advoid corn and other undigestables.

  BUT I also have 5 acres for them to run in,   so that may be why,,
they use up

most of the food in chasing each other and whatever else is around

The watergardening labradors eat
IAMS dog food and whatever bits of
human food they can use their doggy
wiles to obtain. Lattes are popular.

You really can't beat a natural diet - I'd recommend following the Volhard
diet - have a look at www.volhard.com
It's a tried & tested natural diet - gives lovely coats & not much poo.

that is a function of all the "fillers" in typical dog food.  sigh.  my mother did us
a favor and bought some *** dog food and when got huge piles of ***all over the
back yard dog run.  normally we feed em purina puppy chow and it is about 1/4 the
size.  but if you really want small "remainders" get them on something called the
"barf" diet, it is raw meat and veggies.  do a google search.  I know up here in
Wisconsin there is a place makes frozen all meat patties mostly for zoo carnivores
but sell to dog and cat owners.  it is human grade quality meat.  they said they were
going to start making a frozen meat and veggie patty.  like I said, do a search.
better yet, get on a boxer email list and ask there.  Ingrid

I agree that a lot of health problems and behavi***problems are caused by allergies
brought on by all the grains in dog food... especially corn and wheat.  Ingrid

4 dogs to 5 acres.  1.25 acres per dog.  Lots of ground for poop to cover,
and lots of ground you probably don't cover in period.

In my case 2 dogs on 1/2 acre or .25 acre per dog, 1/5th of your ratio, and
a good chunk of my land is now occupied by ponds!
