As dog owners, my husband and I know how confusing it can be to walk into a store and be bombarded with such a huge choice of dog food. All the packaging and advertising is cleverly designed by dog food companies to try to convince us that their products are the best and most nutritious foods that we can feed our dogs.

With so many brands to choose from, such  a vast number of different types of dry and wet recipes, not to mention a whole array of dog food for special diets, how do you know which food is the best buy for your dog?

That’s why we’ve created DogFoodRatings.net. Like all dog owners we want to give our furry friends the best life possible and keep them healthy and happy. What we feed them is crucial to keeping them well. We want our dogs to have lots of energy and shiny coats. We don’t want to see them lethargic, overweight or sick. We don’t want to be responsible for giving them a dog food that could be potentially harmful or cause unpleasant issues such as flatulence or flaky skin. And we of course want our dogs to enjoy what they’re eating!


We’ve teamed up with some great writers who are experts when it comes to pet nutrition and have done some in-depth research into leading brands of dog food and given each one a star rating. In our reviews we aim to get behind the glossy marketing claims to find out what ingredients are in each recipe, where those ingredients are sourced from and what nutritional value they offer. We also look at the history, ethics and business practices of each dog food company and where their foods are manufactured. In addition we provide up to date information on recalls that affect dog food brands. We also have some great articles on dog foods for specific breeds and for special diets.

We hope you find the information we’ve put together useful. We’re constantly adding new articles and are always on the look out for stories that will be of interest to other dog owners, so if there’s something you’d like to see on our site, please get in touch and let us know! We hope our reviews, ratings and articles help you to make informed choices when it comes to choosing the best food for your dog!
