I recommend feeding raw if you have the ability to do so. But I understand that it simply isn't feasible for many people. I personally feed raw at home most of the time. I am considering switching my dogs to one meal raw and one kibble per day so that feeding multiple dogs while traveling is easier. If you are interested in learning more about feeding raw, please reach out. Feeding raw does take some learning and can be a detriment to your dog's health if not balanced. I can point you to some great resources and places to purchase it.
That being said.... The kibble I am most familiar with is Farmina N&D. I have found the finding a quality kibble that is free of peas/legumes, grain inclusive, and a good protein/fat ratio is very difficult. My dogs when fed kibble did very well on Farmina and because it is so nutrient dense, you actually can feed them less of it per day. So it ends up being more cost-effective than you'd think. When comparing food prices, always do the math to see how much you are paying per pound. Many times you are getting a better upfront price for a smaller bag of kibble but in the long run you end up spending more. I have also found dogs to do well on the grain friendly or grain inclusive lines of FirstMate and Nutrisource.
I only feed puppy food until about 6 months then switch them to adult food. Most of my dogs have nearly reached their full height by this age or are within an inch of it. I also like FirstMate as it is an All Life Stages food which is very helpful when feeding multiple dogs.

I have tried out a ton of supplements for my dogs. My go to, everyday supplements are a simple "multivitamin" powder that includes a probiotic and fish oil. All other supplements I use as needed but not generally for daily feeding.

This is one I like for growing puppies. Helps with joint/ligament health and immunity.
