it's always tough to say which one is "the best" as each dog has different needs and each owner looks for something different in what's "best". i think those who answer this answer with *why* they chose certain brands, that might help steer you in the right direction as to what's best for your baby.
i started buttercup on eukanuba (which she was on with the breeder, and she really seemed to like) but after trying to educate myself a little better as to what certain foods are made of and what is overall healthier for them... i made some changes. she was on nature's recipe for toy breeds (hard to find, and most stores think you're talking about nutro when you ask LOL, different brand!!!!) for some time, and still gets it when i can find it.
in an effort to get her away from preservatives and corns and undesirable things in foods, i tried her on a flint river ranch baked kibble. which she LOVED, but again, hard to find in my area now.
we have settled on chicken soup for the dog lover's soul because, a) it's easy for us to find, b)she eats all her dinner when this is in her dish, and c) she has less messy and less frequent poo on this.
she has no allergies for us to worry about (yet? can they develop yet? she's 5 yrs old), and no digestion issues to worry about. so i think i'll keep her on this for some time. we also use a spoonful of merrick canned (thanksgiving day dinner flavor) with each bowl of kibble. no reason, lol.
hope this helps?
