People love their dogs, and the food their dogs eat is important for increasing longevity, improving coat shine, helping the dog's digestive system, and a lot of other health factors too numerous to list. PetSmart has a plethora of choices for the most budget-conscious or choosiest pet owner. They list 1,500 different items of dog food and dietary supplements.

Prices range from a very reasonable $5 or less up to $125 for elite brands preferred by dog breeders and dog show enthusiasts. It is easy to find a product that will meet your dog's need, and your budget, by selecting the appropriate checkboxes down the left-hand side of the dog food category page. Here is a list of all the options available to refine the search for the perfect dog food.

  • Food Type: Canned, Dry, Food Toppers, Fresh, Frozen, Milk Replacers, and Veterinary Diets
  • Brand: 50+ brands
  • Price: Ranging from $5 up to $125.
  • Availability: In Store vs Online
  • Ways to Shop: Clearance, Featured, Halloween, Holiday, New, Sale, and Web Only
  • Product Rating: 1 to 4+
  • Lifestage: Puppy, Adult, and Senior
  • Flavor: 11 different flavors
  • Nutritional Options: Gluten Free, Grain Free, Limited Ingredient, Natural, Non-GMO, Organic, and Raw
  • Health Considerations: 36 health factors
  • Kibble Size: Large Breed, Medium Breed, and Small Breed

Customer support, help with your order, and returns are a little less obvious than with other sites we reviewed that had automatic popups and clear labels. On PetSmart you need to click the help menu item and there isn't a live chat option available there - just a phone number and a contact button leading to an online form. Despite the frequently asked questions menu on the left-hand side of the help page, we would have appreciated a live chat feature for in-the-moment questions that can often arise with a purchase of this nature.

To return a dog food purchase online and get a refund on the purchase price (less shipping or other charges), you simply ship it back to PetSmart in its original packaging. To return dog food to the store, bring it in its original packaging along with a packing slip, shipping confirmation email, and the credit card used to purchase it. Receipts are only valid for 60 days from the date of purchase. If your receipt is older than 60 days, PetSmart will accept a valid ID and will return the most recent sale amount or exchange it for a different product.

Shipping is free on orders over $49 (prior to taxes and after discounts) up to a maximum of $75. For dog food, free shipping is not available for canned, fresh, or frozen foods. You can also choose to sign up for PetSmart's Auto Ship so you can have dog food delivered to you at your preferred interval. With Auto Ship you'll also save 20% on your first order and 5% on all recurring orders.

With such a huge variety of dog food brands, types, and flavors, it's a sure bet that you'll find exactly the food your dog needs or prefers. The savings of Auto Ship is pretty great and the shipping is reasonable. PetSmart is a great place to shop online for your dog food needs.

Brands:

Their own

Trudog is a website specializing in high quality raw dog food. Because of that, their selection is small when compared to warehouse-style websites that sell dozens of brand names.

In place of a wide range of products in all styles of dog food, Trudog offers a refined selection. Its own line of 10 and 14 oz. bags of freeze dried, raw beef or turkey dog food along with several styles of treats and boosters. Trudog uses only premium cuts of meat and adds no salt, sugar, chemicals, or grains. Water is removed during the freeze drying process, preserving the natural nutrition of their food until it arrives at your home. Just add water, based on the provided guidelines, before feeding time.

We found the Trudog website very clean and user friendly without the clutter found on other sites. Food and Treats, as well as other product categories, are at the top of the screen no matter which page you happen to be on. Lists, which drop down from these categories, make quick work of refining your search criteria. Also, the FAQ section is full of useful information about their products, much of which, like nutritional facts, preparation directions, and feeding instructions can also be found of the backs of Trudog packages.

Real meat, with no filler ingredients, makes Trudog one of the more expensive dog food brands on the market but that is to be expected. The bottom line though, isn't the whole story. The cost of a raw diet, and more specifically, a Trudog diet, is said to be offset by its added benefits. One advantage includes having a healthier dog, which potentially translates into lower bills for medication and vet visits. And if having a healthy dog isn't enough, other benefits you can expect from feeding your dog a Trudog diet are less shedding and less time spent picking up poop, per the Trudog website. Unfortunately though, with the exception of a one-time 20% discount when selecting the auto-ship option at checkout, the higher costs are not brought down with discounts for bulk purchases. This option has a set order delivered at an interval of your choosing.

Trudog even backs their products with a 60 day return policy. That is limited to unused and unopened products in sellable condition but does provide some peace of mind. Also, shipping is affordable at $4.95 for purchases up to $49.95 and free, thereafter. If you can afford the prices and are looking for a high quality raw diet for your pooch, Trudog offers online shoppers an excellent shopping experience.

  • Selection. Does the dog food store provide a nice selection of dog food brands?
  • Ease of Use. Is the dog food store's website easy to navigate? Can you find the dog food you're looking for without wasting a lot of time or energy?
  • Cost. How do similar dog food brands compare in price across competitors?
