What Should You Really Look For in Dog Food?

By RogerMorgan. | Dog Info Cool Dog Products

Dog Food Tips for a Healthy PetFood is the foundation of good health! But finding the right food for your dog can be a bit overwhelming.

Try going to the grocery store or online and you will quickly become aware of just how many choices there are out there! A customized nutrition plan is the way to go, however; if you're in a bind, can't afford a customized nutrition plan, or you just want to know how to choose if you ever need to, we've put together some tips just for you!

Top 8 Things to Look for in Dog Food:

8. Made in the USA

7. Natural and Holistic

6. Grain-Free! Some dogs are allergic to grains and cannot process them.

5. No artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives

4. No corn, soy, wheat, or other "fillers"

3. Complete and Balanced Nutrition

2. No poultry by-products

1. Real meat, poultry, or fish is the first ingredient!

This is our top 8 list, but there are so many other things to look for too! Dog foods that are high in protein, contain prebiotics to support a healthy digestive tract, a formula that is rich in antioxidants, food that contains omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids for healthy skin and coat, and food that has balanced calcium and phosphorus for bone and tooth health, just to name off a few!

Most dogs can survive just fine on any commercial dog food. It is our goal to see dogs thrive, not just survive.

The best evaluations of our products come from the people who’ve bought them.

bought two of these

Searched for different ones, decided on this one. Exceeded all expectations. Bought one for a new care and another for our 2004 4 runner. Provides good protection for vehicle and our 140 dog. We travel and camp extensively also good for bringing thing back form garden shop.

George Linhardt

Great product!

Does exactly what we wanted. We can easily raise a part of the seat to give our dogs better access to the rear seat of our pickup. And it's easily removed or installed when we need to put humans back there!

Great Cover - Great Company

The covers are absolutely the best and I have had quite a few over the years. I had a minor issue with my cover and asked if I could get it repaired. The response was: "Thank you for reaching out to us. Your cover is absolutely covered by 4Knines Lifetime Warranty!" I received a new one.

Perfect gift

I purchased this rear bench cover for a friend with two dogs that frequently accompany her to her barn. No problem with wet, muddy feet. Fits well and protects her investment in her car. The cover arrived promptly as promised.
