Grain Free DRY dog food - Good Stuff!

Grain Free Dry Dog Food also features the manufacturers from my Best Dry Dog Food pages - but I doubt you would be very surprised about that!

One very subtle difference though is that two of those manufacturers ONLY PRODUCE Grain Free kibble and those manufacturers are

ORIJEN and Taste Of The Wild - the full range of these two brands are 100% Grain Free.

This means if you seek to buy a top quality grain free dog food, without having to check the bag, these are the brands for you!

Note: Champion Pet Foods, who make ORIJEN, also make the different ingredient ratio ACANA which is only manufactured grain free as well.

WELLNESS and BLUE are the two other brands from the best dry dog food options, but they do have products that include grains in the ingredient recipes so check their labels.

CAUTION. Do not accept "grain free" dog food at face value - I found quite a number of products really lacking in ingredients before chicken fat or a quality oil.

Remember one of the selection criteria is four ingredients before either one of those inclusions. We are also looking for best meat content. Would you believe one product only had two ingredients and only one of those was meat - whilst some had no meat at all in the early ingredients - the meat came after fat/oil!

I am all for giving my dogs food variety - and also for switching manufacturers - so for your consideration, and rather than just focus on the above four manufacturers, here are another couple of grain free dry dog food products for you to have a look at.

CANIDAE Grain Free "pure" Range.

There are four recipes in this grain free dry dog food range; "pure Sky", "pure Land", "pure Elements", and "pure Sea", so you could happily feed any one of them as a grain free option for your dog.

"pure Elements" is my main choice just because it has one extra meat component in the early ingredient listing, plus there are two more meats following the naturally preserved chicken fat. Here's that listing;

Chicken meal, turkey meal, lamb, potatoes, peas, chicken fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols), lamb meal, ocean fish meal, tomato pomace, natural flavor, choline chloride, suncured alfalfa meal, inulin (from chicory root), lecithin, sage extract, cranberries, beta-carotene, rosemary extract, sunflower oil, yucca schidigera extract, dried enterococcus faecium fermentation product, dried lactobacillus acidophilus fermentation product, dried lactobacillus casei fermentation product, dried lactobacillus plantarum fermentation product, dried trichoderma longibrachiatum fermentation extract, vitamin E supplement, iron proteinate, zinc proteinate, copper proteinate, ferrous sulfate, zinc sulfate, copper sulfate, potassium iodide, thiamine mononitrate, manganese proteinate, manganous oxide, ascorbic acid, vitamin A supplement, biotin, niacin, calcium pantothenate, manganese sulfate, sodium selenite, pyridoxine hydrochloride (vitamin B6), vitamin B12 supplement, riboflavin, vitamin D3 supplement, folic acid, papaya, pineapple.

Not a bad choice - now for another grain free dry dog food option.

Merrick Before Grain.

There are three choices in the Merrick grain free dry dog food range namely their #1 = Chicken, #2 = Salmon and #3 = Buffalo

Each variety has four products before canola oil or chicken fat with the only thing changing being that first named ingredient, which will be a deboned meat of the main product mentioned on the bag.

I have chosen Buffalo to give you an insight into the recipe make up.
