You get what you pay for

If it works for your dog, then fine - but there are a heck of a lot better kibbles out there that I would try first before recommending Purina

PURINA!!!! NO high quality there!

Orijen is a great food but if you go with it wean him on very very slowly. Orijen tends to give SOME dogs loose stools.

You could also try Origen's sister food Acana Regionals....no loose stools. Store Locator | Acana

Fromm's also makes a nice grain free "Four Star". USA based, no recalls: Four-Star Gourmet Recipes for dogs - Fromm Family Foods
Store locator: Fromm USA Retailers

What ever food you choose, take at least 2 weeks to wean him on to it unless he has an iron clad gut!

If I had to choose between the two I'd go with Orijen

If I was looking at cutting costs Kirkland has a good dog food at Costco which is very reasonably priced. I have family members that use it and their dogs are healthy and happy and it doesn't kill the bank account.

Personally I feed Fromm's Four Star grain free and Wellness Core is my second choice

Purina One is probably the best supermarket brand, but not worth the price for the quality you're getting... I can buy a bag of Victor dog food for the same price and it's nutrition is far more superior! I've heard good things about the Costco brand too.

Orijen is a great choice...I just can't afford it! lol
