Here’s a look at what the top dog food brands are dishing out


Finding the Best Dog Food for Your Pup

We compiled this list of the best dog food plans based on the criteria pet owners care about most, like nutrition, portions, pricing and of course, safety. But it’s important to keep in mind that no two dogs are alike. That’s why we recommend reading through our full reviews, paying particularly close attention to the brand comparisons, and taking full advantage of our filter feature, which lets you sort by dog food type, special needs and health conditions.


Dog Food Ranking Methodology

We take a comprehensive, unbiased approach in everything we do. Here’s a look at how we approach our reviews and rankings:

First, We Research

First, We Research

Before we even begin reviewing dog food brands, we look at what the science says. We review studies and consult with top veterinarian-nutritionists to find out what’s best for every type of dog. We also identify what dogs with various health conditions and dietary restrictions need most.


Then, We Assess

Then, We Assess

Once we’ve established what different dogs need from their food, we use that information to guide our evaluation of individual brands and product lines. We look at every aspect—from the menu, nutrition and portions to the pricing, promotions and fine print, saving you time and energy.


Next, We Test

Next, We Test

We wouldn’t be in this business if we weren’t loving pet owners ourselves. We want the best for our pups just as much as you do for yours. That’s why we let our dogs do the barking—we let them try the food we review to determine how they like the taste and if the portions are sized correctly.


Finally, We Read Up

Finally, We Read Up

We pore through hundreds of consumer reviews on every dog food brand and plan we evaluate to determine what real customers have to say. We identify common themes—both positive and negative, which may be of interest to dog owners shopping for the best food for their pup.
