I have always bought Coles dog food in the 8kg bag to feed 2 dogs. This week found little white catapillars crawling up the walls inside our house, couldn't work out where they were coming from but looked into the bag of dog food and it was full of small moths!!
Cheap, dogs like it.
Moth, hopefully a one off.
The most important element when taking into account which brands to feed your pet is nutritional content. While 'Coles Complete Balance' is priced extremely attractively and can be bought in mass quantities, meaning only one pet food shop per week or per fortnight, it sadly falls far short of the mark in the nutritional stakes. I was appalled, upon dropping a biscuit in the sink to return and find it had disintegrated completely with the appearance of (I cannot say for certain that it was, of course!) cardboard within it. Not good. Dog loved it, but then he loves eating cockraches too.
Cheap. Can be bought in bulk.
Poor nutritional value.
Probably our best buy when it comes to dog food - he likes it, it is easy for him to handle, and becuase it is a dry food - it ig good to travel with. He prefers it to some more expensive foods.
The price. The 'smart buy' brands are cheaper still, but this one is a complete dog food, and it usually cheaper than the name brands. The small pieces are great for our dog - as he is missing a few teeth, but still needs something with a bit of crunch
Not much at all really - the dog likes it - no reason to complain about this food
To me, all dog foods look the same as long as my two dogs will consume them. The coles brand of dried dog food are no exception, and although they're cheaper than other brands, I don't really see much of a difference in texture and my dogs gobble them up just as fast. They come in a couple of different flavours too, so it's nice to give your pets some variation. I find if you mix it a bit with water it works best, removes any dry quality about the little bits.
Cheap price, readilly avalible, dogs seemed to like it
Nothing, to be honest.

My dog enjoys this food. It is well priced and always in stock at my local supermarket. However I was suprised with the adult range, in that the actual size of the biscuts is quite small. I have a cattle dog, so I prefer biscuts that are larger in size as it is better for their teeth. Given that the packaging says the food is for adult dogs, I did expect larger biscuts like many other brands.
Well priced and my dog seems to enjoy eating it.
There are not many flavour available, so it means I have to keep switching brands to give my dog something different.
I use this prodcut to add to my dogs diet. I find the pieces are reasonably sized but are probably more sutied to smaller dogs. It helped to remove the plaque from my dogs teeth. I add this prodcut to fresh meat, vegetables, rice and pasta. I use this to add bulk to the meal. it also softens well with hot water if required.
Excellent value for money, good sizes available especially for a large dog who uses a lot of food. Hard wearing packaging does not rip and tear.
Poor nutritional value, I would never use this as the sole form of food.
My dog did not like it at all.To finish the bag we had to mix it with other foods such as a little beef mince. My dog refuses to eat it and there is nothing we can do about it. Admittedly, she is a fussy eater but some cheap ones are OK.
Inexpensive, complete nutrition
my dog did not like it
Our dogs tend to be fussy at times and when we get this we have to mix it through their wet food to 'disguise' it.
Is cheap without being nasty. Ingredients are listed as you would expect from the front...BEEF and RICE
Not quite as palatable as Purina, but is much cheaper
