Keep in mind just price alone does not give the cost. The cheaper quality foods you will feed maybe double the amount making it the same price.
Also the grass in Florida is brutal for our dogs.

|RidgeWalker||I've been feeding Daisy (8 m/o) on Diamond foods almost exclusively. I tried the grain-free, and she LOVED the chicked/sweet potato recipe. But based upon dogfoodadvisor giving the diamond naturals line higher ratings than the grainfree, I switched back to the naturals line. Also, the naturals is significantly cheaper pound for pound than the grain free (new lines of food are always higher). Right now she is on the naturals large breed puppy lamb/rice formula, and does very well. Only nominal shedding, doesn't smell bad any. In the last week I've actually been giving her too much, so I'll be cutting back and letting her grow into her weight.|

|SusiQ||I switched to Diamond Naturals Extreme Athlete (5 stars on Dog Food Adviser) and have had good results so far - in fact, Diablo's stools are much smaller and firmer than before. I got it on sale at Tractor Supply for 32.00 for 40#.|

We feed Diamond Naturals large breed lamb and rice. Available at most feed and tractor type stores. Menards also carries it.
Less than $40 for a forty pound bag, Shadow is super shiny, cost is soft and he smells good.

I just switched my guy over from Eukanuba large breed puppy to Orijen's large breed puppy after hearing great things about Orijen. It took us a while to find a store that carried it though and it also isn't cheap lol.
There is a great website http://www.dogfoodadvisor.com/ that rates dog food on a 5 star rating system. Though admittedly your hunt may be a bit more complicated if there are allergies involved!

|TAR HEEL MOM||I am one of those who can not afford to feed my dogs better than I feed my family Yet I want them ot have a good quality grain free food. I have researched and tested for myself and have chosen the Tractor Supply store brand. It is called 4Health and comes in several varieties of grain free. My dogs eat the Salmon and Potato and love it. It is about 36 dollars for the 30 pound bag. I feel this is reasonable and within my budget for a pretty good food. We have no allergies and good poop and coats.|

|Shade||I know I've been very happy with Fromm, but if you're looking for a lower price point Kirkland sells a good quality food, it'll mean a Costco membership if you don't already have one.|

My pups are on Taste of the Wild -bison- no more itching, extremely soft coats, shedding is still there but minimal. My girl had tummy issues but I switched her when she was about 7 months old and she has been fine. My boys breeder started him on it and what a fluffy silky coat!
My boy is 11 months, girl is 16 months.
I'm sure you will be very happy, just me sure you gradually switch over to new food.
