I have celiac disease as well, so totally understand your dilemma!
For those unfamiliar, it takes only 20ppm of gluten to make someone ill. Or even those who don't get physically sick from that low level (me) you still get intestinal damage each and every time you get exposed-which can eventually lead to malabsorption issues or even cancer.
A vague idea of what 20ppm is: take a slice of bread and cut it into 5000 pieces. Just 1 of those crumbs is enough to make someone ill.
The issue with dog food is that if you get it on your hands (from feeding or getting licked) and don't wash your hands before you eat something like a sandwich, you can contaminate the sandwich with the residual gluten on your hands.
To the OP, I feed my guys Solid Gold Sun Dancer. It's not grain free, but is gluten free (it has quinoa and something else) I'll also give them Solid Gold Barking at the Moon, which is grain free. I just like the more medium protein levels of the sundancer.
