Check the indgredients! The first 3 are the most important, but I think the whole list is. Stay away from corn, corn gluten or meal, by-products, soy, wheat, sugar, etc. The best foods are the "natural" ones like Natural Balance, Wellness, etc. Your dog will eat less of it too because it's more nutritional (think if you ate corn chips all day and how hungry you'd be, and unhealthy), and it also helps with the "wet dog smell" and an itchy dog. Try it, I can guarantee you'll see results. I started my puppy on Natural Balance and she looks like a show dog and is very healthy, happy, and just all-around great. Good luck!

Ask 100 people what they recommend and you will get 100 different answers.

The best advice I can give is to do your own research. Learn how to read food labels, do research on the ingredients and find what is right for you.

Also you must keep in mind - what works for one person may not necessarily work for another. So while I can suggest what food I am currently feeding to my dogs, it doesn't mean that will be the best choice for your dogs.

In the end, do your own research, ask questions, and just find out what works for you! :)

The best kind of pet food to feed is something with little to no by products or fillers, the more 'crap' thats in the food the more 'crap' will come out of your pet! there are a few sites you can use to help select healthy dog food.

BARF diets are very, very good for your pet, but only if you are dedicated and willing to work with them, patience is required!

Brands like Innova, Nutro, Blue Buffalo, Wellness and Black Gold are all good high quality foods.

We have three large dogs and we were feeding them the very expensive dry dog food and do you know that the favorite and meal time around here is beneful. So I say stick with what they like.
