In an age of grain-free, organic, protein-rich, and otherwise insanely expensive dog foods, it can be really tough to make an informed decision that doesn't break the bank. We've done the work for you. We did the research, tested over two dozen dog foods with 7 different breeds, and pulled together a list of the best dry dog foods for adult dogs (2+ years old) that won't make a huge dent in your wallet.
All of the dog foods we found are high quality while being reasonably priced. They all have a high protein and fat content, minimal fillers, performed well in our dog acceptance tests, and generally have very high praise in other reviews. We begin with the best overall dog foods, and then provide a list of best relatively inexpensive options (also see our list of the best cheap dog foods here). Here are our top 4 results.
