Looking into switching dog food

I think I've read somewhere on this forum that Victor has recently made some changes to their dog food. A few of our dogs seem to be not liking the food much and we are now considering switching onto a different brand.

What are your opinions on Sport Dog Food? It does not look like they have taurine added in the ingredients, but has a natural source of taurine (0.10%).

Both my dogs still eat Victor. We don't feed the grain free version, makes my dogs lose too much weight. So we weren't really affected by the changes. Never tried Sport Dog Food, but then again my choices are a bit limited where I live.

Which flavor do you feed? Mine are currently on Victor High-Energy, but the blood meal is around #9 in the ingredients.

None of my dogs have ever cared for Victor's, even before the change. I tried it on and off over the years and with 5 different dogs. Go figure. Since I supplement mine with lots of meat and eggs I'm trying Dr. Gary's Best Breed German. So far they love it. I considered Sport Dog Food but decided I could go with a lower protein kibble since I supplement with protein and spend the money on meat I add. It's cooked at lower temps, contains Green-lipped Sea Mussel and uses non GMO grains. And to quote their website:
We only use EU-approved ingredients. If an ingredient is not good enough for you to eat, it may not be used in our food.

For a U.S. company to sell into the European Union it must use what are known as “EU-approved” ingredients. To be an EU-approved ingredient the source of that ingredient MUST be fit for human consumption. Chewy carries it.
