I subscribe to Whole Dog Journal newsletter and even though it is a small publication, I always look forward to reading the articles. Once a year, the publishers analyze and list their recommended food brands in alphabetical order based on a variety of criteria, much like those used at dogfoodanalysis.com. We often talk about dog food on this Blog so I thought I would share ten of the recommended brands (not a complete list) for you to consider. Since I rotate foods at the end of each bag, I have used some, but not all of these brands so this is not a personal recommendation but for your consideration. Of course, within each brand, there are a variety of protein sources ie red meat, chicken, fish etc.
- Blue Buffalo
- Champion (Arcana and Orijen)
- Drs Foster & Smith (for home delivery)
- Natural Balance
- Nature’s Variety
- Solid Gold
I’m often asked the quantity that I feed and I typically feed my dogs approximately 1 level cup per day. However, caloric content is quite different among foods and if I see one of my dogs moving beyond what I consider their optimum weight, I reduce their portions. My dogs that are not going into the show ring are kept leaner for their better health and less stress on their joints during activity.
