All pet lovers understand the importance of good food for their canine friends. There's the store-bought kibble, saving leftovers, or even going as far as home -cooking their meals. But that isn't always healthy; each dog's needs vary, like humans, and they all need something different - it's not a one-size-fits-all.

Spot & Tango Overview:
Spot & Tango's UnKibble was formulated by veterinary nutritionists and uses 100% whole ingredients. Each recipe contains 14 simple ingredients and nothing artificial. (There are no powdered "meat meals" and no artificial additives or preservatives. Plus, no soy, gluten, or wheat). Their recipes meet or exceed the standards set by AAFCO's Dog Food Nutrient Profiles.
While signing up with Spot & Tango is simple, their quiz allows you to personalize your dog's meals through important information like the dog's breed, age, and weight. This helps their proprietary algorithm calculate the perfect amount of food for your canine friend, and the reusable scoop in your UnKibble helps you get the perfect amount every time - no more guessing or overfeeding.
Unlike normal dry dog food, Spot & Tango doesn't use the common hot-extrusion process that kills nutrients. Their unique Fresh Dry™ process helps maximizes nutritional integrity, so your dog will have more energy and reap the benefits of a healthier diet.
UnKibble comes in different flavors - Beef & Barley, Cod & Salmon, and Chicken & Brown Rice. It's made for your dog and Spot & Tango will be with you through your dog's life. Plus, their product has never been recalled, standing to the testament that it really is good for your canine friend.

Purina Kibble Overview:
Purina has been around for a while; they have 85 different dog food formulas spread across 7 product lines. They have both wet and dry food for dogs of all ages. We focused on their kibble.
Their website makes you go through categories and customize your plan, making it challenging to find your dog's exact food and size.
But is Purina good for dogs? Some Purina dog foods have by-products and artificial coloring and additives. They use chicken meal which isn't 'real' chicken, and although it is safe for your dog, it is not the healthiest. Their meat is also cooked on a high heat and turned into powder which is high in protein but is ultimately processed. Purina dog food can also have different variants of flour, which can be hard for your dog to digest.
Their dog food brands range from Beneful, ProPlan (most popular), One, Dog Chow, and Beyond. Their food has been recalled a few times, the latest being in 2016.
Purina dog food is delivered to your door and they offer free shipping for orders of $50 or more.

Purina is trying to branch out and customize their food plans just for you, but with what they have so far, our editors will stay with Spot & Tango. Although they are a little pricier than Purina dog food, the ingredients they use are fresher and healthier. Plus, they have never had a recall either, so you can always trust them.
Dogs are our best friends; they are incredibly loyal and deserve the best food there is. In our editor's eyes, that is Spot & Tango. Their UnKibble is uniquely made for your canine friend to love.
