Best Dog Foods

We currently have two active threads discussing various dog foods that are either being recalled or making dogs sick. What foods are recommended? Are there any universally acclaimed to be among the best. Let's try to break it down into catagories:

Wet Adult
Wet Puppy
Dry Adult
Dry Puppy

Puppy Chow has corn in it. We are on Small breed puppy Natural Choice and Chester is doing great on it. He really likes the taste and stuff.

You really don't need to divide it between "dog food" and "puppy food". That is a marketing tactic. Good nutrition for a dog is also good nutrition for a puppy.

I don't know wet.

Raw- I like Primal or Steve's Real food. Primal is better but my guys love the taste of Steve's.
Best dry in my opinion- Fromm, Acana, Orjens. These companies don't use ingredients from China.

My breeder recommended Earth Born Puppy Vantage, so that's what we're using right now.
