A good dog food is a food with actual meat in it, not just animal poop, fat, and byproducts.

A good dog food has NO corn.

A good dog food has NO byproducts, sawdust, byproducts, poop, beet pulp, or similar fillers.

Lets take a look at the ingredients of Pedigree.

Ground Whole Corn, Chicken By-Product Meal, Rice, Corn Gluten Meal, Animal Fat (Preserved With BHA/BHT), Meat And Bone Meal, Wheat Mill Run, Natural Flavor, Wheat Flour, Potassium Chloride, Salt, Caramel Color, Vegetable Oil (Source Of Linoleic Acid), Vitamins (Choline Chloride, Dl-Alpha Tocopherol Acetate [Source Of Vitamin E], L-Ascorbyl-2-Polyphosphate [Source Of Vitamin C†], Vitamin A Supplement, Thiamine Mononitrate [Vitamin B1], Biotin, D-Calcium Pantothenate, Riboflavin Supplement [Vitamin B2], Vitamin D3 Supplement, Vitamin B12 Supplement), Minerals (Zinc Sulfate, Zinc Proteinate, Copper Sulfate, Copper Proteinate, Manganese Proteinate, Potassium Iodide), Iron Oxide, Added FD&C And Lake Colors (Yellow 6, Yellow 5, Blue 2, Red 40).

#1- Corn. It is known for giving dogs allergies and making them sick.

#2-Byproducts. heads, feet, euthanized pets. basically everything that is unfit for human consumption.

#3- Animal fat- EXTREMELY low quality filler. Unidentifiable origin.

#4- Meat and bone meal- WHAT meat?

#5- wheat- Low quality filler.

#6- ARTIFICIAL COLORING. Linked to causing cancer and other problems, you want to STAY AWAY from this!

here are some high quality foods to try-

Wellness
solid gold
tast of the wild
blue buffalo
innova
canidae
Merrick
orijen
Chicken soup for the dog lovers soul
