Default Natural Balance Alpha Dog Formula

I am considering feeding NB lately. It's not a food I would have ever looked at before due to low meat content (IMO, anyways).

Buuutttt, NB sent me a TON of samples and had great customer service. Their new Alpha Dog line is a bit higher protein than their other foods, which I like. And Jackson went crazy sniffing the box, thinking it was the greatest thing, which he never does. I poured the "Lamb, Chicken Meal and Rabbit" formula into his bowl and he ate the whole bowl! Just dry- no wet added! This is amazing for him and doesn't happen with many foods (except Orijen). He loves that kibbles are bigger (about Orijen's size) too, he loves to crunch his food and has never really liked small kibbles. Protein is 26% and fat is 11.5% but he also is eating pre-made raw a few times a week and I'd be adding canned foods to meals so it would up the protein content.

The back of the sample bag has a $3.00 coupon so I may go buy a larger bag. I'll keep you posted on how he does on it. I'll most likely still be keeping the new Acana Ranchlands formula in the rotation (whenever I can find it in a store!!) vs. Orijen Regional Red due to price. He does well on Go! too but will not eat it w/o something mixed in (I think cuz the kibbles are fairly small).

I know many have fed NB LID diets (which I got samples of too!) but anyone try this new Alpha line?? I hope Petco carries it.
