The best dry dog food is a hot debatable topic. No one really knows which is the best. Usually it comes down to which one your dog loves to eat the most!.
All dogs are different and your dog may not even touch a certain dry dog food brand that another dog absolutely loves. It’s a bit like human’s who love certain foods but can not stand others!
When trying to choose the best dry dog food for your pet you should look at a few factors.
The first is price. Often the cheaper or no name brands are made of cheaper ingredients. These can often harm your dog. Too many preservatives will cause problems with your dog and he will not feel his best.
