Does anyone here have any experience with this food? I've been a rep for the company for a few weeks, and have had my frenchie on their grain free formula for a week or two and he seems to be doing great on it!

I've used the two grain inclusive formulas on my hound mix and other frenchie Irma, and they liked it. I think it's a pretty good food, is VERY affordable (plus I have coupons LOL), and they also have a great program called UPC's for Trees. What you do is send in the UPC codes (certain number depending on the size of the bag) and they will plant a tree. For every 3 UPC's of the 5lb bag, 2 of the 15lb and 1 of the 28, you just mail it to the address given and they will plant a tree :) You can see on the website where they are planting the trees as well on a map.

Just wanted to spread the word, but also get some peoples opinions, since it doesn't seem to be too well known, and is still a fairly new company.

The Primitive Natural Formula seems OK. I'm not a fan of the other grain inclusive formulas. I would rather like to see whole egg instead of egg product.

Anything eco-friendly always catches my eye and I really like the UPCs for Trees thing. But, I think some of the formulas need some more meat (like Adult Vantage and Ocean Fusion, which I'm guessing might have more grains than meat). I was looking at Primitive Natural, but that is the highest calorie content I've ever seen! Almost 200 more than EVO, 100 more than Acana/Orijen, 300 more than TOTW. I'd have to check to see if the serving size balances the calories out.

Chicken Meal, Oatmeal, Ground Barley, Ground Brown Rice, Rye Flour, Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes,

Out of the first 7 ingredients, there is only one meat ingredient. The rest is grains and carbs. Nope. I'd take a pass.
