The Best Grain-Free Dog Food: 205K Reviews

Based on 204,695 Influenster Reviews

The grain-free dog food trend came from the thinking that a dog's diet should be more similar to their natural ancestral diet–more meat protein and animal fats that are easier to digest and fewer carbs. Whether you strictly serve your pup grain-free food or are just curious about options, check out what Influensters are saying below.

Taste of the Wild Pacific Stream was a wonder in a bag for my fur baby. She was a rescue from a very young age. We quickly realized she was having issues with her recommended food. Numerous trips to the vets and tests later, she was having allergic reactions to ingredients in her food. She could no longer have any type of grains, no beef, no chicken. We started researching dry dog foods. If there wasn't one out there, I knew we would need to attempt a home made diet. (I was worried in doing do I wouldn't be able to give her all the nutritional needs she would require.) But luckily, I found this product! Not only does she love this food, but since we started her on it, she hadn't had one allergic reaction since. Her coat and skin look amazing, and she's thriving.

I can't write a good enough review to tell you how much this food has changed my dog's life. I worked at a pet planet while I was finishing my undergrad so my dog literally tried every food under the sun. I eventually realized that he had a food allergy to a common preservative found in many dog foods. Even though pet planet is known for high quality food, there are definitely some better than others and this is the BEST. I have to say that hand down this is, ingredient by ingredient, the best dog food on the market. everything is sourced as locally as possible and it has such a high level of protein. I like to switch between all of the flavors in the range, but my Aussie seems to prefer this one. I tell all of my friends and family with fur babies that they need to get their dog on this brand. Not only do I believe in this brand's values, but I love to support a Canadian company. My dog is happier and healthier than ever after being on Orijen for 3 years and I will never ever switch!

My fur child really loves this dog food. She has sensitive skin and seasonal allergies, so keeping her a on a grain free diet really helps her skin issues. She is a really picky eater, but this is one of the foods that she actually loves!

I started feeding my dog this food and he absolutely loves it. There are actual freeze dried pieces of meat mixed in with the kibble, and I'm more than sure that that's what's been keeping him from turning his nose at his food bowl any longer! It's good for picky eaters as well as for pet parents who want to give their pets the best of the best.
