Apparently they've changed the ingredients in James Wellbeloved so it's now not as good as it used to be. We always gave it to our previous dog, but it was awful for Douglas. We then went to Orijen, but our trainer thought it was too high in protein and might've been affecting his behaviour, so we changed to Burns, which seems to suit him. Please don't anyone shout about Orijen :D - to be honest I don't think it had the slightest effect on his behaviour - he's still bonkers :roll: But now he's on Burns we'll stick with it.

Just a quick extra note about wet foods -

Wainrights trays are 60-65% meat depending on the variety
Pets at Home Deli range trays (not pouches) are also 60% meat and Marley loves these as they have tripe in them.

I think you have to go with what suits your pet and your pocket.
On a serious note, I got some free packets once and my two loved it. I bought a bigger bag and then I began to notice a change in their behaviour, they became more aggressive and even more excitable and actually jumped up at a child and knocked the toddler over. I was mortified.
I rang my breeders to ask their advice and they too had had problems with the food. I rapidly changed back to Royal Canin and they quickly went back to normal.
The lesson learnt was that a change in food can influence their behaviour, I had no idea until then.
Since then I've swopped to Orijen and it suits them beautfully, both Toby's delicate tum and Bertie's bounciness. I honestly don't think the high protein content affects them at all. (Bertie would the same no matter what he ate)
