I think Costco makes a decent food (way better than Blue Buffalo, etc). Our GSD gets a mix of Acana and Weruva canned food. He has a really sensitive tummy and this has worked out the best for us. We only shop at local pet stores though–no big chains. I refuse to give him any brand that’s been recalled. For treats, we do Plato Turkey and pumpkin, acana treats, and earth animal no-hide beef chews. He also gets homecooked food (no raw for him unfortunately–he can’t handle it). Can you tell he’s spoiled? lol. If you want some other good options since your pup can handle anything you can try Carna4 (all natural, baked kibble but really pricey), Hound & gatos for wet food, Grandma Lucy’s Pureformance and the honest kitchen grain-free embark or love for dehydrated, etc. Good luck!

Here are my two rotten babies: 

They’ve been on the Nature’s Domain for a couple of years now and we are overall happy with it. We live on a teacher and student budget so the cost-quality ratio works out well for us.

The younger one has a terrible stomach and has to be grain free and I suspect also has poultry intolerances so we feed them the Salmon or Beef based variety (prefer Salmon).

The older one can eat anything (she was a rescue 7 years ago and the people who had her said they just fed her what’s on sale at the dollar store 🙄), but she had bladder stone surgery for strovytis crystal stones about 3 or 4 years ago and the vet really pushed to put her on Hills/Science Diet U/D. I really didn’t like the idea of that crap, even though I know the prescription varities have their place. So we give her vitamin C supplements, monitor her bathroom habits at home pretty carefully, and get her urine tested regularly at the vet. So far no more issues (knock on wood).

Not all science diet food is prescription based. They have just regular adult dog food. My Father-In-Law has owned his own vet clinic for 30+ years and he recommends this food to us as well as feeds it to his own 5 dogs. My dog is very healthy and we get a lot of comments on how shinny and nice her hair is

Our guy gets Red Paw (http://redpawdogfood.com/) – and we supplement with raw treats, including raw herrings, meaty beef/elk/deer bones, chicken backs, and eggs.
