Generally, the cheaper low quality foods are the foods that you can find at the grocery stores and department stores that have a pet section. You can also find cheap quality foods at large pet store chains.
Most large pet stores have a system for how they stock their shelves. Dog foods are often ranked. These cheaper foods are located in the first few food aisles closest to the front of the store because these items yield the highest profit margin for the store. They prefer that you buy these cheaper foods for your dog because it means higher profits for them. The higher quality expensive foods already cost a lot of money so profit mark ups on these items are quite slim for the store.
Some pet stores specialize in selling only holistic healthy foods. If you shop at one of these stores you are sure to find only good foods but you will still have to find a good Breed Appropriate food for your Snow Dog.
What Brand of Kibble To Feed
There is no obvious or easy answer to this question. The reason being is what food you are able to feed might depend on where you live. If you cannot find a certain food in your country then recommending it to you is pretty pointless. While the cost of some high quality foods within their country of origin make them a good candidate to feed, in another country, with the high added shipping costs, suddenly this food is just not feasible to feed.
Rather than suggesting a certain brand of food, I can give you, the savvy Snow Dog Owner, the tools to be able to find good foods that are local to your area.
