    I recently started buying Canadian dog food – Grand Cru by CaniSource.

    It’s dehydrated so it’s just a step away from raw food but easier to handle as it’s like kibble.

    How good is it?

    Thanks,

    Phoenix.

    Taste of the Wild, Pacific Stream, adult dry. My Jack Russell rescues (4) have done really well for the past 7 years on it.

    To Thomas M. Check out the brand “Zignature”. Not cheap, but more reasonably priced than many.

    Are there ever considerations in the future to do analysis on vegan dog food brands amongst each other? The market for that type of dog food is getting bigger so it would be nice as a consumer to see reviews and options. My dog is allergic to meat proteins so I give him V-dog which is an excellent vegan dog food but I am always open to hearing what other brands of dry vegan dog food are on the market and how they compare to each other.

    How about Nulo Grain Free Salmon and Peas recipe? You gave it 5 stars so I’m not sure why it’s not on your list!

    Hi Mike, please add Wag Tantrum to your list for review (https://wagtantrum.com/). I have been feeding my dog their organic adult dog food for the past 6 months with very good results – she’s a little leaner with lots of energy and a shinier coat. It’s fresh, cooked organic dog food. Ingredients are ground meat – beef or chicken, vegetables and brown rice. My dog was previously eating Stella & Chewy’s dinner patties – and – Orijen Regional Red – she was doing fine on both; she was a picky eater with the kibble, so had to mix). She really likes Wag Tantrum food, so no need to mix. I would love to garner your expertise….how does Wag Tantrum stack up to others on your list?
    Many thanks,
    Mimi

    I have been feeding my cocker spaniel Canidae No Grain, Limited Ingredients, recommended by my vet because of her very itchy skin. Canidae it not in your Editor’s Choice list and I was wondering why that is.

    I’d like to nominate the ZIGNATURE L.I.D lines of foods. My Italian greyhounds tend to have sensitive stomach and usually the less ingredients the better.
    My research led me to Zignature and so far they are doing great with it.

    I’m curious as to why the 4Health Performance didn’t make the EC choice. It was a 5 star product, however, it wasn’t listed.

    I was scanning you list of Dry dog foods and did not see Azmira anywhere. Have you reviewed their products? I used the classic for many years with our last Dog. I would be interested in your review of their foods.

    My Cocker Spaniel had very itchy skin when we adopted her. Our vet recommended Canidae Grain Free dry food, no foul. Our dog loves their Bison and Lamb formulas limited ingredients and it has helped with the frequent scratching. I do not see that brand under your Editor’s Choice List, is there a reason for that?

    I would like to nominate what I consider an exceptional food. Dogs For The Earth. They know where all of their sources feed their animals and where that comes from! All veggies and fruit are local , fresh, non GMO, etc. Cooked food, air dried into “biscuits”. Located in The Keys in FL. In addition to their regular food they offer a line of limited product “Chelsea’s Blend”. This is a blessing for my yeasty girl. Both my girls love it. I would love for you to review it.

    Hi Mike,

    I recently switched my dog to Zignature Salmon Recipe. He has a really sensitive stomach and Ive been trying to find a good fit for him for months. He is a 2 year old lab. I also have a 1 year old lab who can eat practically anything and be fine. I am worried because I don’t see zignature listed under your editors choice. I wanted to try Acana but its really expensive and I am afraid that its too high protein for my dogs (they sometimes can be in the crate for up to 6 hours/day about 2 days a week)

    I also noticed you seem to list a lot of pet foods with duck or chicken or turkey. I have heard its best to stay away from anything with feathers. I also heard its good to avoid potato. I am just curious to hear what you or anyone else has to say about this topic.

    how about the honest kitchen grain free?

    #113145 Report Abuse

    Hi Ashley,

    Zignature is certainly a fine dog food. Please keep in mind that currently, there are more than 340 dog foods rated 4 stars or higher on our website. Yet (by design) Editor’s Choice includes a much smaller selection — currently, just 21 brands.

    There are many reasons a particular brand may not be included on our lists.

    For example, in most cases, a company may not have met all our guidelines. Or more rarely, its agents may have been unwilling to reveal important manufacturing information.

    In any case, since no one on our team is a veterinarian and due to the uniqueness of each individual animal, it would be inappropriate for me to recommend a specific recipe for your dog’s GI issues.

    I’m not aware of any scientific reason that it’s “best to stay away from anything with feathers”.

    BTW, the reason you see so many poultry based recipes on our lists is because they are the most common meat ingredient found in the overwhelming majorities of dog foods on the market. Also, they are usually more affordable for most readers.

    Five star dog foods tend to be highest in protein. Some animals find these foods too rich. So, why not try some 4 or even 3-star dog foods?

    My best advice is to use “biofeedback” to help you find the best food for your pet. Try small packages of one dog food at a time. Monitor how your dog responds to each recipe you try. Then, adjust until your choice until you find the one to which your dog’s GI system responds most favorably.

    Of course, it’s always best to discuss your dog’s problem with your veterinarian.

    One more thing… don’t forget to check out our “Budget Friendly” dog foods list. You’ll find some super values there.

    Hope this helps.

    Sorry if this is a duplicate message… Merrick Limited Ingredient Diet Grain Free – adult dry. (Specifically Duck & Sweet Potato Recipe). I see a canned version, but not the dry – curious how it rates with you guys. Been feeding it for a month now and it’s helped with allergies.

    I would like to nominate Dogs For The Earth to be added to the top foods for 2018. They have a low glycemic food for my yeasty dog and a “regular” food for my other girl. The food is hand dried in patty/disc form. You add water to the food
    and let it rehydrate before serving. My two Maltese girls have been on it for months and doing well. They know what the animals used for their food were fed. All local, organic, GMO free vegetables and fruits. Great company producing good food.

    I love Meunster Milling products. It’s a family-owned business in Texas. They have high-quality, holistic kibble that you can customize with add-ins such as coconut oil, bacon fat, salmon oil. They have grain free varieties and freeze-dried treats, all at very reasonable prices with free FedEx shipping if it’s over a certain amount. I have been feeding my dogs the chicken and pork ancient grains for several months now and I have noticed that the shedding is definitely less (I have 2 beagles). Please review their products.

    FYI, Meunster Milling called me last week from TEXAS (I am in NYC), just to see how my dogs were liking their food, and how we were doing with the whole COVID-19 lockdown. Name one feed company that you know that has done that!!! When they create a custom mix, the mixing person signs their name on your bag. I like knowing I am feeding my dogs high-quality food and supporting a family-owned business.
