gain 28 isn’t a bad food for its price, firm poo dogs look well and coats shine but it’s only 13% fat as it’s designed for sprinting dogs more than endurance so if his dogs are out 5 days a week I’m not sure they would hold condition on it unless he added some fat to it everyday day as in lard or beef dripping or sunflower oil ect which is easy and cheap enough to do anyway, one thing I would tell him if he uses it or any dry food for that matter is to soak it in  plenty of warm water half an hour before feeding,  it amazes me how much water these dry foods will absorb if you let them soak for a while, just imagine if your giving them a big bowl of dry food and the dog isn’t the best drinker it’s got to really dehydrate them when there working hard 

I was told never to mix raw and kibble in same bowl as digesting time lot different? My lot do well on raw so no need for it

As a rule I feed flesh but if I do use biscuits I use redmills Xcel.. That's for running dogs and gun dogs that are worked hard six days a week.. I've tried just about every sack of food on the market over the years and for the price you won't beat it imo.

Have you tried feeding good puppy complete during winter when working a dog hard ? If so do you still rate the redmills over that ?

A lot of heavily saluki blooded dogs won’t hold condition off just meat, some need a good amount of carbs

redmills high protein isnt it same as dr john 30 20 and eukanuba endurance etc 

what do lads think about high protein ?

I think good as long as from a good source but enough fat n plenty calories really important for them.
