Orijen... It has some of the best ingredients you will find on the side of a bag of dog food and it's made by a respectable and trustworthy company.

You really listed about the 15 worst dog foods out there and orijen, so of course i chose orijen. There are tons of much better foods out there than the ones you listed. I bet the majority of the people here don't feed any of the foods you listed except maybe kirkland, blue buffalo, and orijen.

There's actually a recent thread we had just like this if you wanted to take a look.

I am sorry. I did my best..... I tried listing a variety so people could actually select there dog food on the list other than choosing other. I don't have anything against your choice of dog food I was just emailing you to let you know it is on the list for you to choose of you would like. =)

The puppy gets Wellness Large Breed Puppy. He does well on it and I'm comfortable with the ingredient list. He's the second puppy I've raised on Wellness and I've been really pleased with their health and coat condition.

The other 4 adult dogs are on Taste of the Wild Pacific Stream. I prefer fish based kibbles for one of my dogs, it's grain free and of good quality. Also feeding four dogs can get expensive. Of the grain free choices in my area, TOTW is the most economical.

I think what LucyDog was trying to tell you is that most of the members on this site wouldn't feed the majority of foods on your list. Most of them are not quality foods - exception being Orijen, Blue Buffalo and if on a budget Kirkland.

Raven is currently on Blue Buffalo Wilderness Salmon but is switching to TOTW Pacific Stream (which my foster is on) when this bag is done.

Okay..... Since you are the second person to mention those brand dog foods I am now second guessing the dog food I am feeding. I thought it to be a good brand dog food. So now I am curious to if I am feeding my buddy junk food. Can I get some opinions on these ingredients in this brand of dog food. Rather it is good or bad or what you think of it......

Here's a good website to kind of give you an idea about good and bad foods. They rate each product by their ingredients and give a breakdown about it's positives and negatives. Definitely worth taking a look.
