Mine eat Fromm kibble and Stella and Chewy's freeze dried raw patties and Carnivore crunch treats. Occasionally I buy Wild Calling canned to add to their meals for versatility. And I feed them twice a day around the same time.

Finley gets Orijen puppy, and Gizmo gets Orijen Six Fish. Both are mixed with Wellness 95% meat canned food of various flavours. Tink, unfortunately, has chronic pancreatitis and now has to eat vet food.

I feed raw, mostly DIY prey model raw, but I do feed pre-made frozen occasionally (Nutriment)
My youngest two were raw-weaned, they have never eaten any processed food.

I feed Primal Frozen Raw for breakfast and dinner, and Ziwipeak for lunch. Once a week I feed Orijen freeze dried and Orijen Tundra kibble, just to switch it up and because Onyx really likes Orijen.

I've also been occasionally adding some of Primal's raw goats milk. She goes nuts for that.

Most of those foods I have never heard of. Oh my I have some research to do! LOL

I know horse feeds like the back of my hand but now starting to get back into dogs as well and i'm lost on what's good and what's bad lol.

My other dogs still live at my parents house and my mom always took care of feeding them.

Dogfoodadvisor.com is a good place to start your research.
Regardless of what type of food you choose to feed the same criteria apply, go for a high meat content from named sources, (avoid 'animal derivatives' and other similar vague terms you want it to specify turkey or lamb or whatever) no grains, low carbs, and no artificial additives. (If you can't pronounce it and have no idea what it is, it has no place in your dogs food lol)
