Question What brand would u buy if you were uneducated about dog nutrition?

Ok lets say we just got are first dog, and have no clue about dog nutrition, and are to lazy to care (not saying any of you are! your all very responcible (sp?) dog owners!). What brand would you buy just based on the bag and what it say?

I would have picked Beniful, I mean who could resist those freshly chopped meats, and veggies?

Again this is just for pretend, not real!

Hrm. That's a hard one. I am kind of obsessive about all foods in general, and we never used to shop for dog food at grocery stores even *before* I was old enough to care about dog food... we bought Nutro at the pet store for many years.

I probably wouldn't buy Beneful, because I've always thought the soft, squishy kibbles are wierd. I'd probably buy Purina One, maybe Iams :/ if I had no idea at all, and had no inclination to research owning a dog. hehe

When we got Molly we knew nothing about dog nutrition and got Nutro. I'd say that's pretty good lol...we actually still feed it. No idea what made my mom choose it, I would think she'd choose something like Iams or whatever.

Anyway...if I were uninformed, I'd probably go with Beneful. Just because the commercials are so cute lol, and they seriously make that stuff look good.

When my family *was* uneducated about dog nutrition, we bought Nutro Natural Choice.

I'm not sure, actually. In the given scenario, I'd probably pick something that I could get at the grocery store, just so I wouldn't have to go out of my way to pick something up at the pet store.

So I'd say Beneful does look like a likely candidate.

This feels like a nightmare!
