Best Dog Food


Taking care of man’s best friend can really bring a lot of joy and happy memories into your life. The intimate connection between humans and dogs has existed for hundreds of years and today, it is still as strong as ever. As a proud owner, you want to give the best care you possibly can to your beloved canine and a fundamental step in that regard is getting exactly the right kind of dog food.

The right kind of dog food? Easier said than done, is it not? The problem is the market for dog food is simply immense, so immense that customers could not possibly be expected to sift through every single available item before making a decision. Moreover, you would also have to factor what breed your dog is, the precise level of nutrition that it requires, and what tickles its taste buds and arouses its sense of smell the most. Indeed, picking the right dog food now is starting to look like a case of eenie meenie miney mo.

However, we have thoroughly researched the market ourselves so that you do not have to. And in doing so, we have managed to put together the following list featuring the 10 best dog foods that are commercially available right now. All of them contain the essential nutrients your dog needs to survive and thrive and all of them are made according to carefully planned recipes to give your dog maximum nutrition and a whopping good taste.

Taste of the Wild Dry Dog Food

Why we like it: Made from a wealth of highly nutritious ingredients – meat, fruits and vegetables – and supplies your dog with energy and a strong immune system.

Editor’s rating:

Kicking off the list is a dog food that you can have in a wide range of flavors including boar, bison & venison, lamb, salmon, venison, and wildfowl. But there is more than flavor to it. It is actually produced out of real roasted meats to give it the best amount of nutrients and taste. There is a healthy amount of fruits and veggies in the mix as well. The most common packaging weighs a full 30 pounds to go with your dog’s enormous appetite.

The formula is grain-free and can be ingested by dogs of all ages. The health benefits it offers are immense. A rich supply of antioxidants help your dog maintain a kickass immune system. Meanwhile, the calorie concentration is 370 kcal per cup. That says that this is not a formula that does the work all on its own. To get the best out of it, you need to allow plenty for your dog to burn off a fair bit of those calories and maintain a healthy body mass.

Blue Buffalo Life Protection Dry Adult Dog Food

Why we like it: A truly omnivorous load of goodies including all the essential proteins, vitamins and minerals your dog needs to survive and thrive.

Editor’s rating:

We know that not all dog breeds take kindly to eating fruits and vegetables. So getting the formula exactly right taste-wise is key if they are to be persuaded. Fortunately, this dog food from Blue Buffalo pulls it off splendidly. Included in the recipe is a healthy and delectable combination of meat, fruits, and vegetables that will do your dog’s health a world of good. It will not take very long for the results to become apparent.

The main ingredients include deboned chicken, garden fruits and vegetables, and whole grains. That makes for a healthy combination of protein, vitamins and minerals that is exclusive to this manufacturer. But perhaps what is just as important are the ingredients that are not present in the formula such as by-products of chicken or poultry, corn, soy, wheat, and artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives. The formula is recommended only for adult dogs and each sample comes in a 30-pound bag.


Rachael Ray Nutrish Natural Dry Dog Food

When you buy the Rachel Ray Nutrish, you getting nothing but a high-quality recipe made from the simplest natural ingredients. The main ingredient here is farm-raised chicken and the rest are wholesome vegetables to add in those vital vitamins and minerals.

You can also go for the turkey brown rice and the venison and real beef plus brown rice.
