We know how deeply you care about your dog, and I, for one, am especially sensitive to the kinds of food I put in my pup’s belly. It amazes me how much I scrutinize the nutrition label on a bag of dog food, yet I don’t give my foods a second glance when it comes to ingredients.
Your dog is family, and so he should be fed with the same amount of care you feed your fellow humans. After a bit of digging and contact with representatives from each of the following companies, I present to you a list of 15 high-quality dry dog foods with no recalls, ever.
