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!

    I like that I can get the largest size bag of Wellness Core delivered to my home without an issue. I was using Blue Buffalo and we wanted to try Wellness Core as well.

    PFD is the only place where I can purchase either of these products at the lowest cost and my delivery is free.

      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?!
