I also agree that Earthborn Primitive Natural is a food I would nominate. When I contacted the company they said their food had no GMO products, no vitamin supplements from China and that all the ingredients were grown in the US and the food manufactured in their own plant. They further support and advocate many ways to reduce our carbon footprint. One of which is that I see FAR fewer poops in my yard! I have been feeding “premium foods” for years and am totally impressed with how much of the food they are eating is digesting, instead of on the ground!crazy4catsParticipant
How about Northwest Naturals?Robert MMember

I’d like to nominate NutriSource Super Premium Pet Foods (a division of Tuffy’s Pet Foods) for the Editor’s Choice list. In the short time I’ve been feeding it, my 13 dogs have done wonderful on it. I am feeding their Performance 30/20 grain based food to my performance dogs and their Grain-Free varieties to my retired dogs. It’s not often that you can find a singular brand of dog food that you can feed to so many dogs and they all love it! NutriSource is made at the company’s own manufacturing plant, not outsourced.
What are your thoughts on the blue Buffalo Stews, on the dog food advisor page you have them listed as a five-star dog food.
Thanks for all the suggestions everyone. Be on the lookout for the June Editor’s Choice, there are going to be some new additions. 🙂
What will it take for Blue Buffalo to make the list?aquariangtMember
There are a few blue buffalo threads out there, I would go read those and you will see some of the reasons that it potentially isn’t on there. Many (myself included) do not trust them as a whole
Hi Mike, Sandy and HDM. I don’t know whether anyone else has suggested Vital Essentials Raw Dog Food so I just thought I’d throw it in as a suggestion.Myra SMember
I thought Blue was a Diamond product…It’s difficult to know who own’s what.
Blue isn’t a diamond product though I’ve heard that rumor before. It’s just that. According to the company customer service line, Blue is a private company owned by the Bill Bishop family.Mom2CavsMember
I think the rumor that Blue is a Diamond company comes from the diamond shape on their bags. In fact, I’ve actually heard some people call it Blue Diamond, lol! But, like Kritterlady said it is NOT and is privately owned. Personally, I don’t trust them….too many people’s pets have had issues with it (and I know some) and they also have too many co-packers for my taste.
I’ve used Blue since 2007 for my cats and dogs with only fantastic results. I’ve been in rescue for 30 yrs an haven’t had a pet food deliver such good results.ive recently added raw meat to their diet due to financial consideration with so many animals. However I too share the copacker concerns and look forward to Blue finishing their process plants. They say they will be making all of the wilderness line in house by 2015.Radu SMember
I see now wellness have dog grain free canned food
I did not see it on the site
I would love to here your input on that!

Yes, Blue Buffalo is privately owned, but they currently do not make their own food. They have several co-packers to make their food …

What about Back to Basics?
Summit Dry Dog Food? Seriously? How did that make the EC list. Very low protein, low fat, and sky high carbs. I’m really confused. HDM or Mike can you comment please.crazy4catsParticipant
It’s a four star food made by Petcurean.
Hi Dori –
Summit is a 4 star food. All 4 and 5 star foods are eligible. The Editor’s Choice is based on the company as a whole. Summit is manufactured by Petcurean. Petcurean is an Editor’s Choice company.NectarMomMember
My question is , who goes to all these CO-Packing Companies to see what goes on? Just asking
I checked Summit and they are 4, 3.5 and 3 stars with very low protein. I realize it’s a Petcurean food, just seems below most other EC foods.
Hi Dori –
The Summit product line is rated 4 stars. As stated previously, Editor’s Choice is a compilation of companies – not of individuals formulas or product lines. A wholistic assessment was made of the companies that manufacture predominantly 4 and 5 star foods and those companies that met our criteria were chosen – Petcurean was one of those companies. Manufacturing a few formulas or product lines that do not rate 5 stars does not disqualify a company from being worthy of Editor’s Choice.
Hi Nectar Mom –
I’m not exactly certain what you’re asking. If you want to clarify I’ll try my best to answer your question.Charlene GMember
All healthy and nutritionally contains high quality ingredients
Hi Charlene. Have you tried them yet and also do you know where they source their ingredients? Thanks. Dorilana SMember
hi this is dog leadership just wanted to know about logic dog food and why its not on the listLinda MMember
I’m surprised that Canidae is not on the list and I would like to nominate it. I’ve been feeding my dogs this good food (it’s rated 4 stars by Dog Food Advisory) for 2 years and they have done very well on it, and they like it as well.Donna GMember
Can someone from the Dog Food Advisor respond on Evanger’s wet food? I thought this was very safe, what information is available?DogFoodieMember
Evanger’s has a terrible reputation. You can find lots of information about them on Susan Thixton’s site, thetruthaboutpetfood.com; here’s a link: http://truthaboutpetfood.com/?s=evangers&submit=InkedMarieMember
What Betsy said.patvl246Participant
Would really like to know if these 2 brands are recommended,
“Darwins” and “Hare Today Gone Tomorrow” I use these raw products to feed my 240 lb English Mastiff. I want him to be safe and to eat good food. I also want to know that the more than $350 a month I’m spending on his food is a top quality food. ThanksDonna GMember
Thank you for that website response on Evanger’s.
Darwin’s and Hare Today are exceptional choices. IMO you can’t go wrong. I use both in my rotation for my three dogs. Both companies also have great customer service and are always available to answer any and all questions.lana SMember
what about vital? It is a soft food that is not full of marketed ingredients and is a good source to use as a rotation or adding it to the dry your dog is already eating.aquariangtMember
is that freshpet vital or another brand? Freshpet is on there if soJerry BMember
Hmm, Wild Calling, canned by Evanger’s. I don’t see that happening Jerry B. Sorry.Ann MMember
I would like to see a review done on Dog For Dog products made by ecowelldog.
Hi Ann –
Could you post a link to this food? I’ve never heard of it and when I did a google search all I pulled up was a website with grooming products.Mary TMember
I have been feeding Nature’s Domain that I buy at Costco and wonder what you think about it?

Thanks for the link Ann. The brand hasn’t been reviewed yet so I’ll forward the link to Sandy so she can add it to the to-do list (if it isn’t on there already).Dave MMember
great decision to charge for access – hopes this helps you cover some of your time and costsSaigParticipant
Hi, Would be appreciated if there was a review done on Sundaypets dog food. Thanks.
Hi Saig –
Is Sundaypets available in the US? Or just Australia/New Zealand?SaigParticipant
Looks like Sundaypets is only available in Australia/NZ for now. It looks really good 🙂
