Does anyone know what a good balance of content in Kibble would be?
As in what is a good level of Protein, Fat, Calories...so I guess what numbers should you look for
in the Crude analysis section of the label.

A better way to judge a quality food is to look at the ingredients.
this is a good website to learn more about ingredients in food:  www.dogfoodanalysis.com
Happy reading!

I visit that site all the time! haha
I was just wondering like whats a good range of protein % for our breed and a good range of fat % in the food.
(Like what you shouldn't exceed or go under)

I think it would depend on age and activity level.  Puppies shouldn't be feed a food with more than about 28% protein b/c (supposedly) it makes them grow too fast.  After about 1 year- 18 months they can be feed higher levels of protein, more is better. I don't know offhand what % of fat would be good for house pets vs. dogs with jobs or highly active dogs.
