Our breeder recommended wild blue for my dog when she was a pup. She's almost a year old and I've been thinking of adult food for her. I see that my dogs coat is very shiny and she's got lots of energy. It's expensive food and I'm not positive if I could do better. Wild Blue seems a little overboard on the organics. For example the have alligator and fish flavor. Or salmon and elk flavor. Seems like nonsense. We've been feeding her the puppy chicken dinner flavor which has chicken and veggies.
I want to buy good quality food for her. Here are the numbers for wild blue adult chicken dinner food. 25lb bag goes for 50bucks

I've heard good things about Purina Pro Plan.

I personally use Dr. Tim's and order it through a company called Petflow

I'm different. I feed this and really like it. I've tried quite a few over the last year but this works best for me 4 Health in Salmon and Potato, http://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/product/4health-salmon-potato-formula-for-adult-dogs-35-lb-bag

We use Taste of the Wild with our Saluki and have for years. She is now 9 and can outrun many dogs younger than her and always gets compliments on health and condition from vet.

I have fed Merrick for years and my dogs do good on it.
I did a very scientific test a couple years ago to see which food my dogs digested the most of.
I feed them the same amount every morning and noted how many piles of poop were in the kennel before afternoon feed.
Merrick won hands down, never more than one pile.
Science Diet and Blue Buffalo tied for second with one or two piles.
Purina Pro was worst with two or more pikes every day.

I'm sure his is flawed and I will get bashed but it makes sense if they ain't pooping it then it is staying in their body and helping build muscle or fat.

Best out there IMO

I feed Dr. Tims Pursuit 30/20 and order from
Chewy.com

None of that Corn Gluten protien crap that's in ProPlan....just threw that in there to get the Purina guys riled up!

I started feeding Victor Dog Food several years ago and have been well satisfied with how my bird dogs and pets do on it. I feed the 26/18 in the green bag mostly but they make other analysis' if that does not suit you. My vet says my dogs are in excellent health and their vigor and stamina are quite acceptable. I feed 8 dogs and they all like it and the kennel clean up indicates good digestion. Locally (for me)made in Mount Pleasant, TX.

THIS AND THIS, have tried about every thing in 50yrs, less poop means better digestion...
