Quick Reference Dog Foods

I have been making my own dog food and dog treats for a long time, and I love being able to control what goes into my shopping cart and my dog’s bowl.  I will post recipes another time, but I thought my Quick Reference List for Dog Foods might be handy.  I keep a small version of this posted on my refrigerator door, so if there is something in the kitchen that might appeal to the Canine Americans in the house, anyone can do a quick check to see if it is ok to share.
