Picking the best dog food for your pup is no easy choice. There are so many different brands out there. How do you know which one will be the best for your dog.

Just like people, every dog is unique. Some foods work well for your dogs, while others wonít agree with her tummy. And because youíre in charge of keeping her healthy, itís up to you to get all the information you can about what goes into her bowl. Letís go over a few tips to keep in mind when choosing the best dog food for your dog.

1. Know your dog. This oneís easy! Is your dog a small or large breed? How old is she? Is she active or does she like to lounge around on the couch all day? These are criteria that will affect the food you give your dog. For example, smaller breeds will need smaller kibble, as they could choke on larger bits of food. Or perhaps your dog has health issues that you need to address. Allergies, such as wheat and gluten, mean that you need to watch your dogís diet carefully.

2. Read the labels. You read the nutritional labels on your food before you buy it Ė you should do the same with your dogís food. Look at the list of ingredients carefully, especially the first five. These first five should be a high-quality protein or meat. Stay away from foods that list ingredients such as corn, rice or wheat in the top five.
