See what brands topped our rankings!

We’re not dog food experts. But we are curious, dog lovers who wanted to figure out which dog food brands were the best. So we collected reviews and rankings from all over the Internet to see what brands stood out from the pack. Here are the results of our extensive research.


Best Dry Dog Foods

Dry food is the most common type of dog food in the market. It’s easy to ship, store and is actually better for your dog’s dental health than wet food.

Best Wet Dog Foods

Wet foods are generally better for dogs with health issues (such as persistent dehydration) and older dogs. If you feed your dog a wet food keep any eye on their teeth because it can cause more dental issues than dry dog food.

There is no “one-size-fits-all” dog food. There is also a huge variety including organic, veterinary and grain free dog food. Every dog is unique based on their age, breed, health status and activity level. If your dog has specific health issues or nutritional needs consult your veterinarian.
