    My two are on the JWB fish and rice - all that fussy miss Maddie would eat as a youngster, so when Pippin came along the poor lad didn't get a choice, he got the same! They have tried the new(ish) lamb and vegetable recently and enjoyed that as well.

    I feed them on the Junior/performance one, as on the adult food Maddie doesn't keep her condition. It's because she's not a big eater, and goes very very skinny very very quickly on adult food. In fact, although they would both be greedy for treats, I'm lucky that they self-regulate their weight. I'm always complemented on how fit they are by both the other dog-walkers, and the vets as well, but can't really take the credit. They will leave food in the bowl if they've had enough, so don't put on weight. All the running and playing they do probably helps as well.

    I feed my two jwb and they both seem to love it When I got Ziggy back in January this year he came to me on beta puppy food. My friend said there was better foods out there and sugested a few brands.With her being a vet I trusted her and went for Eukanuba to begin with Ziggy hated it with passion then I changed him to jwb and never looked back. Dotty came into our lives two weeks ago and had always been fed Royle Canine but has been fine on jwb.

    Amber has JWB & loves it.
    Occasionally she'll have Royal Canin, but only if there's some JWB in her bowl too!

    A small piece of cheese is very handy for giving tablets/capsules etc. Just a very thin slice,warm it in your hands and make a ball of it with the meds in the middle - goes down first time every time. I wouldnt give TOO much cheese though, as it contains salt.

    In my humble opinion, Burns is the best food I've ever given my boys. I swear it was this food that brought Charlie back to peak health after the state he was in when I got him.

    You can buy it online and it is delivered within days

    James Well Beloved for our 3, they seem to enjoy it, and we rarely have any tummy upsets,

    Another vote for JWB for my two. And I use cheese as a special training treat (recalls mainly) but only in very tiny pieces.

    Both mine are on JWB. Alfie was really poorly and used to scratch his tummy he seemed worse with poultry. Vet suggested we try fish. JWB Ocean white fish has cured all scratching and he has such a lovely shiny coat now. I buy the 7.5 kg bags from The Range.
