You can also look into Natural Balance Limited Ingredient Diet dog food too. You can check out the various formulas they have here. They're really awesome for dogs with lots of allergies too, because they're limited ingredients and are limited to one protein source(one meat source, rather) per formula.
Hope these suggestions help. I work in a Pet Health and Nutrition shop and MOST of the dogs with allergies that come in, are on the Natural Balance L.I.D foods.
All the foods listed above, including the Wellness Core Ocean are all better in terms of healthy foods than the Royal Canin. We actually recently took Royal Canin off our shelves and are phasing out the last of what we have because they're now including by-products in their food too.
