Our Review Process
Here at DogFoodRanking.org, we empower dog lovers to find the best food for their pup by providing straightforward, detailed reviews of all the top brands. Every review we write is based in science and takes into account the latest expert guidance from top veterinarian-nutritionists. All research is conducted by a team of professional writers who dive deep into the details that matter most to pet parents—like the nutrition, the portions, the level of customization, the pricing and more. Our team is committed to taking a strictly factual approach in everything we do—there’s no bias here. And, because we know that the only way to be 100 percent accurate in our reviews is to order the products ourselves and let our own pups test them out, our team has done just that. Here’s a closer look at how our review process works: We start by establishing core criteria that we use to evaluate every dog food plan. These standards are based on scientific evidence and the latest guidance from veterinarian-nutritionists and other animal experts. Once we’ve identified our key criteria, our expert team begins the review process, determining how each brand’s dog food stacks up. Once the evaluation process is complete, the editorial team compiles pros and cons lists, brand comparisons, pricing information and all the other details dog owners need to know in order to make a confident and informed purchase decision.
About Our Editorial Team
Our editorial team is comprised of professional writers and researchers who were selected for their roles based on their experience, skills and their dedication to transparency and ethics. The team is full of dog owners and animal lovers, which means they are all personally invested in this subject matter.
To ensure that every review is completely unbiased, we keep our editorial team isolated from every other aspect of the business. The staff is only compensated for the time they invest in the research and writing process—they are in no way incentivized, financially or otherwise, to write favorable reviews. The team serves only to provide you with the facts you need to make the smartest and most confident shopping decision.
