5 Best Grain-free Premium Dog Food of 2021

Rachael Ray Nutrish Dry Dog Food

Some dog food uses grains – usually corn products – as filler ingredients. Grains provides calories but it is not a nutrition-dense ingredient. We want to feed our furry friends with meat proteins, so, opt for grain-free dog food by all means.

We fed this to 2 of our dogs. The bulldog did great on it. We definitely saw an improvement in his allergies and his skin and coat. I think he liked the taste okay, but didn’t love it. Our Jack Russell loved the taste of it. She didn’t have any skin allergies so she just stayed the same. However, even though we did a controlled feeding with her on it she did gain some weight. So same food, but different results for different breeds.

After getting one of our dogs (German Shepherd mix) allergy tested we found that she was allergic to many added ingredients in most dog foods such as corn and peas, and was intolerant to chicken, salmon, and several others. We were able to switch her to the lamb with no added grains and she has stopped biting her skin raw and seems to be overall much happier and LOVES the food that we are able to get at a good price! Definitely recommend for those looking for a budget friendly and healthy option!

I have an older Cocker Spaniel who has a sensitive tummy. We’ve been buying Crave for years and it’s the only dog food she can tolerate. If I give her a bone, she’s sick. If she eats other snacks or foods, she’s sick. Crave is the best food for her and it’s consistent with lamb, beef or seafood flavors. It’s also small so perfect for smaller breeds.

My golden retriever likes fish based dog food, but won’t touch chicken or beef. My Bernese Mountain Dog is always hungry, but will eat anything BUT fish-based dog food. This food has finally hit the sweet spot. Both are eating, neither are having any symptoms of food-based allergies or intestinal distress. Dog Food Advisor gave this brand high marks generally (4 out of 5 stars) and this formula even higher marks specifically (4.5 out of 5 stars). It is the only affordable dry dog food to get this level of review.

This dog food worked a miracle. I was given my puppy, Ezri, when she was only 14 days old. I had to bottle feed her and she hated the bottle and formula. Tried Purina Puppy Chow and several other fancier brands but she hated them all. Then my roommate brought Blue Buffalo Freedom grain free dry food. Ezri couldn’t get enough of it. Ezri is now 9 weeks old and probably weighs around 10-15 Pounds. Vet says she’s in perfect health and her weight was perfect.
