|TOTW is cost effective, good price for non grain kibble with a reasonable amount of fat and protein.
Best of the best is a well thought out fresh food diet, raw better than cooked but of course that is time and space consuming and can be expensive. A good canned food has more protein and fat and moisture than dried but cost more than cooked or raw food but takes no time to feed. Best of the dried foods is Ziwi Peak and that sort of thing. Dehydrated stuff or maybe something like a Honest Kitchen mix in where you add fresh meats is probably better than the dehydrated foods otherwise THK ranks a bit lower than ZP in my opinion. Both those types cost a lot. Then come kibbles with more meat content than meals and no plant proteins like pea, potato, corn or rice protein that is used to bump up protein content in kibbles these days.
TOTW is cost effective and a good value. No plant protein concentrates and some meat rather than all meals. The company has had issues with recalls, might consider that point. I would rather feed more protein and if I fed TOTW I would definitely mix in some canned food or fresh food topper to moisten and increase the protein and fat.
And as posters wrote above the best food is the one your dog thrives on! My dog did okay on good quality kibble, adored but I didn't see any changes in condition on home cooked chicken and rice and is thriving on a raw diet. I failed at feeding a high protein no grain kibble and didn't see any improvement in his condition feeding through 2 enormous bags.
