W feed raw, using a combination of premixed raw (mainly Halcyn and Primal), homemade raw and Honest Kitchen (not all in the same meal LOL).

I've found dogfoodadvisor.com to be a good source.

Because my older dog has skin and allergy issues, we feed a grain free kibble. I tend to buy several brands and mix them up (wellness, blue buffalo, innova, merrick, solid gold, etc).

I feed raw with a combo of a high quality kibble.

What ever you do please don't feed the cheap grocery store food to your dog...that's like feeding your child a daily diet of nothing but fast food, candy and junk. Please don't do it..your dog will thank you and so will your wallet. (lower vet bills)

I used to feed a fairly high-end brand, but now I go with Costco's grain-free for my younger dog and the Costco senior food for my old girl.

The younger dog had bad gas with most of the higher-end brands that I tried (Orijen, Taste of the Wild, etc). The Costco stuff works great for him - nonexistent gas. And it's half the price of the higher-end stuff. My old girl was on Blue Buffalo, and I've noticed that she's less gassy on the Costco brand stuff as well, though that was never a serious problem for her. Stools are always nice and firm for both dogs, so I'm happy.

They both get veggies as snacks

The lowest protein you can get your hands on.

Don't believe the high protein, high cost, designer dog food propaganda.

There have been a lot of studies done, but you rarely see them because they refute big brand advertising.

If you can find under 20% protein, get it. Your skin/allergy problems will disappear.

Guaranteed.

I think Wellness is good and Rachel Ray's foods (not just b/c she's famous either). She has some good mixes.

I've fed Fromm Family Foods dog food for several years. They have many varieties, some grain-free.
I get the Adult Gold, Chicken a la Veg, Salmon a la Veg and sometimes the Salmon Tunalini.
My dogs have done very well on this brand - no skin problems, no allergies, no running eyes, firm stools and have improved joint health.

For snacks they get vegetables (carrots, green beans...), fruit (watermelon) and crackers here and there.
I don't buy pre-packaged dog treats.

My dogs get Acana Grainless, and their coats, stools, attitude are all excellent! Not the cheapest, but our pet store has a frequent buyer program (buy 12 bags, get one free).
