We’ve looked at a huge range of different dog food in our guides and outlined the best dry dog food for all different types of dogs. Remember that all dogs are individual and therefore there’s no single choice for the best dry dog food.

However there are some brands and flavours that have been included in multiple of our lists due to their exceptional quality. Here we outline the best choice of dog food for each category and some of our favourite dry dog foods overall.
