Pet lovers, do you feed the highest priced "designer" foods, or low priced "bargain" foods, or something in between?

What "price point" food do you feed your dogs and on what basis did you make your pet food choices?

Thanks for the links! I buy Taste of the wild for my dog and noticed it is listed as a good one. I'm really glad I was right to buy it.

My pooch is only allowed to eat Royal Canin Veterinary Diet dry dog food, and a 7.7 lb bag costs $35 -- don't know whether that's considered a designer or bargain product.

Our dog refused to eat dog food. We ended up feeding him whatever we ate. Since we eat healthy, it was great for him - he always ate his veggies (he loved tomatoes) and the meat he got was always high quality. We were highly criticized about this by some family friends, but the fact was that he was healthy - his fur was beautiful, he wasn't overweight, and his strength and energy never declined with age. I mean, sure, we never looked up every single thing we gave him to make sure he wouldn't get sick, but he was never sick, was physically very large for a chihuahua but perfect in weight by ratio, and people in the neighborhood would ask what he was eating when I'd be rollerblading to walk him and he would start pulling me or when we'd take him to the forest and he'd run by our bikes for twelve miles. We always had a bag to carry him if he got tired, but he never did. That was one healthy dog! Of course, if you eat greasy and/or unhealthy things I'm sure the dog wouldn't benefit from it, but he did well on our specific diet.

I can speak for the cat food we use, since we no longer have a pooch. The cat food is more on the expensive side since it is a high quality food. It's worth the price since it is high in protein and doesn't contain any sort of grain or unnatural fillers. It is designed to be equivalent to what a cat would eat in the wild. All of out kitties are remarkably healthy, so no complaints from me.
