10 posts in this topic

Anyone feed the dog Diamond????

Would like to hear opinions. As of now I'm using Purina One Puppy. But need to switch here in near future due to his age...

I've been feeding Diamond exclusively for many years. You forgot to mention what breed of puppy you have. I feed my Pointers Diamond Perfomance year round(purple bag), it is 30% protein/20% fat and that might be a little high for most retriever breeds. We switched from Purina Pro Plan because the dogs didn't seem to hold weight even in the off season. We saw big improvements by the second bag and have been using it ever since.

I use Diamond for my pointers. I use the performance during hunting season and then maintenance the rest of the year. Excellent product and price friendly also.

Diamond is a decent food. However don't get like the Maintence type foods. Lower quaility. They do offer some great foods like mentioned in an earlier reply. There are some other foods that are great too. I wouldn't stop at Diamond.

I just switched to Diamond from Eagle Pack. So far so good. I like the availability and the price. I will normally feed the maintenance and switch to premium during hunting and trial season.

Where do you guys buy Diamond at? I live in Alexandria and we have Fleet Farm, Menards, and Walmart. Is it normally carried buy Co-op's? Right now, I'm feeding my lab a half/half mixture of Sprout and Iams and she seems to be doing great.

I used to feed the performance and was happy with it until this fall. I'm not sure if my dogs have changed or the feed changed but most of my mutts were having loose stools after a training run so I switched brands. I didn't have this problem before. All in all, I think it's a decent feed but there is better available.

      I would say Pike fishing got noticeably worse after the first year of spearing.  Used to catch lots of big pike while musky fishing..  I didn't catch a single one last year.  Makes me sad and angry, to be honest.

      I've been going to the Landing regularly for the past 10+ years. I think that ownership has changed due to bad management more than anything. When Jack bought the place again, it was hopping because he gave everyone what they wanted...a fun place with good value. That was only four or five years ago. That in itself proves that the cost of entry doesn't preclude reasonable prices. I've had one interaction with the new owners, or more specifically one of them. He was extremely nice and help me out when I was in a bind. I'll still go there for a beer or two but in general don't frequent fancy places because I save my money for other things in life.   I think why people complain is because it is the only option on the west end of the lake. There are off-lake options like the Crescent but it's not on the water. With The Landing it's like someone took something away from the lake. I believe that is the emotion that is being tapped. If there were three on-lake options on the west end of the lake and one went fancy, then probably no problem. That's my take.   One would hope that local economics would guide decisions at such a place. If the majority of customers want X, you provide X. The new owners have been providing Y for a while now and don't seem to mind if that hits them in the wallet. That's their choice and I'm fine with it. I just won't eat there often if at all because it's not what I want when on the lake.

      From what I understand the walleye population is still a little high for the long term health of the Red Lakes.   A perfect example of that is that Buddy just got across that pressure ridge Sunday so Hillman's road is just now getting to their normal fishing areas. Awesome pictures once a cop. I'm getting old but I can remember when if there were 10 of us fishing on Center Bar it was too crowded.   Since those pictures were taken both Hillman's and Beacons have extended out another 2 miles.
