The best dog food is not good food if it's not the best food for YOUR particular breed of dog.
Different breeds have developed to suit different environments and to serve different purposes. For instance, Arctic breeds have evolved thick double coats and high fat-to-protein nutritional adaption. Desert breeds have evolved a light, single coat to protect the skin, and high protein-to-fat nutritional adaptation. The older the breed and the longer it has remained within a particular environment, the more pronounced the differences in physical and physiological (including nutritional) expression are likely to be.It is a fallacy to assume that all dogs share the nutritional requirements of a common, very distant, wolf ancestor.
