Canidae Life Stages All Life Stages Formula Dry Dog Food
Dog's & I are thrilled
As my wife and I are reaching middle age, we are being much more selective about what we eat. Also, we try to eat better grades of various foods, which is rewarding to our bodies, taste buds, and in some cases the earth, and quality of life issues for the animals that provide some of our food.
Being happy with our changes, I started researching foods for our three Yorkies, ages 12, 3, & 2. Changing, from what I thought was a quality product available from our local stores, to Canidea All Life Stages, was a massively positive move. The dogs all are triple excited at meal time, versus just going thru the motions before. Their coats are better. The youngest had flaky skin, which is healed. They had a few discusting habits, that I think we're from lack of some nutrients, that have stoped.
My wife & I, and our dogs are our family. It makes me feel good that we are all eating healthier and we are all noticing big positive changes all around.
Use this product. Nothing but good can come from it.

Will feed nothing else
I have a 5 yr old Cattle Dog and a 17 mo old St. Bernard ( my 5th Saint). I have raised all my dogs on Candidae for many years. When this Saint was a puppy, I followed a recommendation and started her on Blue for puppies. While she loved it, her stools were large and messy, and she was gaining weight too fast. As soon as she was 9 mos old, I switched to Canidae. Both dogs love it... Both dogs have small well formed stools, easy to clean up after, NO digestive problems, beautiful soft coats, (groomer says she has never seen a cattle dog with such a soft coat). This is a very digestible food, my Saint thrives with perfect weight ( 145 lbs.) on only 2 slightly rounded cups twice a day!! - with limited treats and joint supplement. Very high qualaity ingredients.

My dog's have never looked better
We have used Canidae for years, and on several occassions I have tried a different food for them. Within a short time their coats would start to dull, the shedding increased, and they didn't have the overall look of great health that they did while being fed the Canidae. I have since stopped trying other foods, and feed them the food that works best for them.

My dog is his old self again.
After a while of feeding my dog a bad food (i didn't know much about pet nutrition then), my dog stopped playing, running around, and being happy. He lied on the floor and groaned all day, like a senior dog. He was only 3 years old. When I switched to this food, my dog was alive and playful again. He will almost always accept your offer to play. Canidae is just a few dollars more expensive then my dogs old food, and it has a way better formula!

My dogs love their Canidae!!!
After feeding Science Diet my dogs often suffered loose stools, dry hair, & when they did not have loose stools extreme gas we decided it was time to change to something better. Not to mention the price of SD had went up. With many weeks of research & waiting for our large bag to run out we choose Canidae above many of the other premium brands I am happy to report my fur babies are doing great. No more gas, loose stools and their coats are now full of shine!
I also breed & raise Shih Tzu & Yorkshire Terrier puppies I send each & every puppy home on Canidae we do mix it with Holistic Select but I do not mix but 2 cups of HS per 5 pounds Canidae. I order 3 of the 44# bags and with 10 small dogs we go through 1 of the 44# bags a month and every 2 weeks. I will continue to feed Canidae and send each puppy home with a bag as well. I have even convinced a few family members to make the change over to Canidae and their dogs have been also doing great!
My dogs love the Canidae Treats as well!

We used to feed Merrick, and while I would still go back to Merrick if I had too, why would I for this price! The same ingredients for half the price! This is surely the best deal in dog food. Amazing food, amazing price, and free delivery!

I just won't feed my German Shepherds any other brand (or Canidae variety) of dog food. They love this food and, their coats are fabulous. I've tried other quality foods and, none compares to regular ALS Canidae. During a recent local shortage, we tried the Canidae Chicken & Rice & the dogs didn't tolerate it. Platinum Canidae is OK, has glucosamine & chondroitin but, didn't seem to provide the same benefit to coat. I prefer buying the large size ALS, separate supplements & controlling weight with portion control/natural fiber (green beans or pumpkin) & exercise.

I absolutely love Canidae, my dogs been on a few dog foods and this one is amazing. After just 2 weeks their coats are starting to look so much better, no problem switching from the old food. They love the taste. My dogs look healthy and have a lot of energy. I highly recommend this food.
