How we rate dog food

How we choose our Best Dog Food lists

We choose our Best Dog Food lists based on our star ratings, but also the following criteria:

  • Retail availability (preferably online)
  • Greatest popularity as measured by the number of user reviews
  • Re-order rates
  • Search interest
  • Positive user reviews

Recalled products are removed from these lists until we feel assured they’re safe.
