We've got all 3 of ours on Diamond:Extreme Athlete and they love it! Their coats are gorgeous and they're building more muscle mass with ever day! This food has been great for them with their exercise level.

I think we need a new list up as the old list has some that no longer would be considered in the top...

Whole Dog Journal puts out a good list of foods every year. Check it out if you haven't.

Does anyone feed PMI exclusive ( i think Purina makes it)
It isnt sold at PetCo or PetSmart ( to my knowledge) . We buy it at a local grain store.

The dogs seems to do well on it and have been on it for a while. The cost is really low so it makes me worried.
The top Five Ingredients are:
Chicken, chicken meal, cracked pearled barley, whole grain brown rice,
corn gluten meal

I am open to changing, but even when we have done more expensive brands ( Wellness, Timberwolf) I didn't see any tangible difference.

Well I personally wouldn't feed it and don't like that there is corn gluten meal, but it isn't totally terrible...
I'd suggest looking at the dogaware website:
http://www.dogaware.com/diet/commercial.html#select

Foods like Blue, innova, taste of the wild, nature's varity ect are much better quality...

Thanks! Is Blue the Blue Buffalo food?
I am going to try and transition them to a new food to see if it helps with the usual bout of skin/spring allergies they suffer from. I have heard food can impact their flare ups?

I can't say enough good things about TOTW! I feed my dogs that, and it has helped them immensely. I also feed it to my foster dogs :)
