I've studied and fed everything from Abady to Wellness and think they - along a few other brands and alternative methods of feeding - are of very good,consistent quality of which I am comfortable about feeding all of my dogs.
Core was picked by my 2 Scottish Deerhounds,1 (brindle!) Chiahuahua and African Pied Crow as the "better tasting over time". If they've been fed something different for a while - maybe many weeks - they all behave as if they're just given a "Jackpot" in goodies or treats.
The crow is the most demonstrative one,but as he is an "exotic" bird,he need a fairly well studied and very high-quality nutritional program and Core is part of the food given on a regular rotation,and he is quick to pick out his Core and hide the little chunks in his many "safe" spots inside his aviary. Core is also used in his foraging system and the bird ill stay occupied with his Core-objects for longer periods of time then what he'll spend when other foods are used.
My Deerhounds and the Chi all have perfect teeth,and I do not brush them. (I'm guilty...)
I wanted to stay away from beef and fish in my dogs feed for a period and Core was the solution at that time,just as it is now when no restrictions are put on their protein-source. By avoiding - pr dog's choice - 3 of the ingredients which are most commonly related to ingestion allergies in dogs when fed an organic,all natural,grain-free and high protein diet,I am certain that I've done (with K9 assistance) a good job researching,learning and understanding of todays No1 companion animal and that my dogs - and African Crow - will live longer,fuller lives because of it.
(And I really do not write reviews often,but I'm "considered" an animal nut-case and I'm not someone easily impressed...)
Great food!

    Comments about Wellness CORE Grain Free Original Dry Adult Dog Food:

    LOVE this pet food brand, been a fan since its introduction and so happy with what they offer these days!

    Wellness' history goes back about 12-15 years ago as being a super premium food with AMAZING ingredients! At the time and still, with innovative and healthy ingredients like deboned HUMAN GRADE chicken... unheard of in the pet food industry! To sweet potatoes, blueberries, carrots and etc.. all utilizing the actual natural product's nutritional elements directly and not just in supplemental form! It really comes down to this… if I had to… if was held up for long periods of time to access to no human foods but with just Wellness foods, like a storm or such…Wellness is all I would allow myself to keep alive! Human grade products! KEY with me! 

    The CORE diets are Grain Free, especially formulated for those pets that may have wheat, corn, dairy or soy allergies or prefer a vegetable, fruit and protein rich diet.

    It's a little pricier than other brands, but you get what you pay for…right?!

      Comments about Wellness CORE Grain Free Original Dry Adult Dog Food:

      We are only a week in, so it's hard to really give specific feedback at this time. I have a 10 month old German Shephard who has some type of food allergy that I am trying to decipher. She is constantly scratching and itching (an no, its not fleas).

      I am giving this formula a shot to see if it helps with the itching - so far, I am not seeing a difference....we'll see what happens as the bag empties.

      A 25 pound bag and a case with 12 cans was about 100, so it's not a cheap 'fix' - but if it ends up easing her itching, it would be an investment worth making.

            Manufacturer

            At Wellness®, we do whatever it takes to create the healthiest foods for the pets that depend on us. Food feeds their souls, sustains their lives and protects their bodies. That’s why our diverse team of animal lovers, nutritionists and vets has only one mission: To help you provide your pet a healthy, happy, long life through the power of natural nutrition.

            For each of our recipes we never compromise—selecting nature’s finest ingredients and combining them in exact proportions to help support your pet’s health and wellbeing. Because we’re passionately picky from the first step to the last, we guarantee our products will deliver the Wellness Promise.

            As a pioneer in holistic nutrition, we seek new ways to help pets thrive, educate people about the importance of a healthy lifestyle, and support animal wellness programs.

            Like you, we know that our pets provide us unconditional love, and providing uncompromising nutrition is one way we can do the same for them.

            We believe in authentic real-food values. We believe in food you can trust. We believe in The Wellness Difference.

            The Wellness Difference is about being more than natural. And it’s not about what is left out—no fillers, or artificial ingredients—these are a given for us. True Wellness is about what we put in—a small number of simple, pure, authentic ingredients. We believe this is the way to make superior food for our animals.

            The Wellness Difference can only come from an ideal balance of protein, fats, and carbohydrates—no ‘empty calories.’ That’s why our nutritionists never stop studying our animals’ needs. And, when it comes to protein, we know that pet foods sometimes use inferior ingredients. We do not. True Wellness comes from using only pure protein from high-quality sources.

            The Wellness Difference means every ingredient has a purpose in every food we make. We study until we’re confident of its health benefit… and then, we make sure to put in the right amount so you’ll see a difference in your animal— We never add ingredients just to have the newest ‘buzzword’ on the label.

            This is how we do things at Wellness Natural Food for Pets.

            We do more than make pet food. We create Wellness.™
