Hello! I actually only feed dogs once a day, unless they are puppies or very small dogs. But I mainly do this because I'm caring for a large group of dogs.
The whole thing about dry food cleaning the teeth is a bill of goods the petfood companies have sold us, but it's not true. :naughty: 80% of dogs eating commercial foods have periodontal disease by two years old. Dogfood companies are actually working on developing kibbles that will do some scraping of the teeth, but the current types are way too small and dogs don't do much chewing, tending to gulp their food. If you want your dog to have clean teeth and breath, feed him/her some bones every week.
Canned food is perfectly acceptable to feed, and I'm not sure why it seems to have gotten a bad rap. In my opinion, canned foods, while more expensive generally, tend to have less preservatives and possibly a lower amount of grains. Dry foods all have at least 50% grain content, so they are the proper consistency to make it through the extruding machines. Don't know about baked foods like Wellness, though
Sunroc, you're lucky that in the Bay Area, you should be able to find any of the foods mentioned
