Alternative/complementary site(s) to dogfoodadvisor.com

While dogfoodadvisor is a good reference site, I like to have alternate resources for reviews/recommendations for foods.

REVIEWS.COM is a site I ran across that seems to be a fairly credible source for information about dog food.

They claim to have over 1,400 hours invested in their reviews.

They claim to have reviewed 2,223 formulas, and ended up with 134 dog food formulas — manufactured by 29 brands — that they recommend.

The methodology they claim to have used is:

We removed products where the first ingredient is not a meat of any kind.
194 disqualified

We removed products containing corn, soy, wheat, grain, or flour.
578 disqualified

We removed products containing beet pulp or sugar.
146 disqualified

We removed products that contained by-products or sauces.
44 disqualified

We reviewed brands for recalls, ingredient sources, history, and customer satisfaction.
956 disqualified

We reviewed the remaining formulas based on the best ratio of protein, fat, and carbs, as well as the source of protein.

They seem to keep the site frequently updated, with the last update as this post was made is
June 2, 2017, the review started in '15

Their current top 10 food recommendations as of that date are:

Orijen
ACANA
Eagle Pack
Fromm
Nature's Logic
Stella & Chewy's
Wysong
Pinnacle
Primal
Hi-Tek Naturals

What sites do you go to as a complement/alternative to dogfoodadvisor?

Sorry for the typo in the title (tried to fix it but couldn't) and the random bold (waited too long to fix, missed the 15 minute rule)

It sucks to be stoopid :O

This provides objective information on ingredients - how they're sourced, how they're processed, the nutrient breakdown. Much of it is geared toward livestock production, but there is so much good information on ingredients, I think all label-readers should bookmark this site.

It's a joint project that includes input from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (ie: it is not researched and sponsored exclusively by American Big Box Pet Food, Inc).
