We place top priority of the health of our wonderful golden retrievers and this starts with good food. Over the years as breeders, we have had the opportunity to try out many different brands of dog food, starting with some cheap off brands from big box stores and moving eventually moving toward the overall health of our dogs. The cheap brands made our dogs less vibrant with dry coats, flaky skin, and bad odor. We didn’t want to see our dogs suffer from bad food, so we moved up to a slightly more expensive dog food that promised to be more beneficial to our dogs. Instead of a great improvement, they still maintained their thrifty appearance, dull coat, and a generally uninviting appearance.
The shelves at the big box stores have so many different choices, so we started trying one food, then another. Our dogs turned their noses up to some foods, and liked others, but we were less than satisfied with the overall result even though we were now spending at least twice as much as we initially did. Here are three Windy Knoll Goldens approved dog foods.

B.A.R.F. WKG Rating: Gold
B.A.R.F. is a truly raw food which gives growing puppies the best nutrition possible; especially if you make your own food, sourcing ingredients from organic farms. They offer various formulas which are freeze dried raw food. This preserves vital nutrients that your dog needs to be the most healthy. This is probably the most true-to-life food you can get for your golden retriever. You can also choose to make your own dog food based on the B.A.R.F. formula, which requires some extra work, but the results are worth it if you have the time and money to maintain this diet for your golden. Here is one such formula!
THE HONEST KITCHEN WKG Rating: Silver
The Honest Kitchen is one of the few brands that you can count on for the highest quality human grade organic dog food with good grain or grain free varieties. While they have kibble, we are more interested in the low heat dehydrated dog food that is a better option than straight kibble. Like Life’s Abundance, they offer many natural options including dog food, treats, snacks, and supplements. Click here to get 20% off your first order!
