About Us

Here at, we are dedicated to helping dog owners find the best food for their furriest family member. Our honest, expert reviews, rankings and side-by-side comparisons of all the top dog food brands and plans save you time and energy so you can focus on what really matters—like belly scratches and games of fetch.

Who We Are
Behind every review is a team of professional researchers and writers who are highly experienced in fact-based and unbiased reporting. They work tirelessly, rigorously researching and comparing every dog food plan to ensure they leave no topic uncovered. Not only that, our team is full of devoted dog owners, which means they’re personally invested in finding the best food.

What We Do
Whether you’re looking for pre-portioned fresh food for your growing puppy or grain-free grub for your senior dog with allergies, we can help. Our mission is to empower consumers to find the best dog food for their furry friends by providing detailed reviews and unbiased rankings of all the top options according to different dogs’ needs.

How We Do It
We begin by establishing core criteria that we’ll use to evaluate each dog food plan. This criteria is based on the latest scientific evidence and expert guidance from leading veterinarian-nutritionists. We know that no two dogs are alike, so we make sure to dive deep into what’s best for every breed, age, activity level and more. We also look at what’s best for dogs with allergies and various health conditions, too.

Once we’ve completed our research, we begin our evaluation of each dog food brand and plan. We go so far as to order each product we review, so we can experience the entire customer journey firsthand. Thanks to our own pups, who handle the taste test portion of our process, we also get some insight into the palatability and the portions.

Why We Do It
We are pet parents, too. We understand that your dog is your family. And just like you want the best for your loved ones, you want the best for your pup—including what she eats. We are committed to helping you put only the best food in your dog’s bowl—so she can live a long and happy life with the family she loves.

How We Make Money is completely free for consumers. We receive compensation from the companies we feature in our reviews, which enables us to keep it that way. Not only that, it lets us invest in the resources we need to continue to do what we do best: Help you find the best food for your pup.

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.
