Merrick Grain-Free Real Duck + Sweet Potato Recipe Dry Dog Food
Although this food is pricey, I have a husky so she doesn't eat much. I don't mind spending a little extra on great food, anyway.
I bought this because I was feeding earthborn holistic coastal catch. It started to stink like pennies and rancid fish, and then my dog started to stink like rancid fish, so I figured it was time for a switch. I love this company and trust it, so it's a win win.
the only strange thing I noticed is that since the moisture is 11%, the pieces clump together in the bag.
Besides that, the protein level is 38%, and fat is 19%, which can be rare for a high protein food. I'm pleased with the ingredients, let's just hope it makes her smell less like she bathed in a marina.

My German Shepherd is obsessed!
My 3 y/o GSD absolutely loves this food! Not only is he very picky but he has allergies and a sensitive tummy. Ever since starting this food, his skin and fur have been so soft and shiny. You can definitely smell the high quality ingredients when first opening the bag, which made my picky eaters ears stick straight up. I highly recommend this food for any breed!

Tasty and good for your furbabies
I purchased this product as my rottie has skin and allergy problems. The Vet put her on Blue Buffalo and in over a year she's still having issues just not as many and it's getting harder and harder to find any BB without any chicken or chicken by products even in their beef flavored food!
Not only does this food have NO chicken/by products it's also grain free. Has it helped with her allergies? Too soon to tell as she's just finishing up transitioning from the BB to the Merrick.
Along with all the good things this food has for my girl it also has a lower cost for more product.

MY BABIES LOVE THIS FOOD
My doggies love this food, and when you read whats in it, it's not hard to understand why. I've got a chi, a pug/chi, a pit mix, and poodle mix. Their fur is incredible, all of them!!! It's so nice to see them enjoying it, and the kibble size is perfect. They love all the different flavors but I think the duck is the FAV!!!! Love Merrick products!!!

Finally! A dry food that works as well as raw!
I had tried several top brands of dog food after deciding that a raw diet for my rare breed sporting dog (a Bracco Italiano) was getting too expensive. Unfortunately, even the top name brands like Orijen, Canidae, etc. caused my boy to get diarrhea and left him hungry and looking thinner than I would have liked. When I tried Merrick Grain Free, I did so with reservations, especially since it was less expensive. Surely the savings meant compromise on quality - no so. I was so surprised at the results! My dog did not suffer digestive upset, he loved the taste, and he filled out nicely with a shiny coat too! I love the built in supplements for joints as well, which saves even more money. I have rotated several flavors of Merrick Grain Free and they all work just as well. Very, very happy and satisfied! I thank Chewy for refunding the other foods that did not work so I could finally find one that did!

Very nutritious, dog loves it.
This is one of the most recommended dog foods on dogfoodadvisor.com. Super nutritious the company is fantastic about where they are getting their ingredients from and my dog loves it. Can't ask for more from a dog food company. Highly recommended.

Good quality product
Have been feeding Merrick for about 2 months, tried both duck and venison. Dog loves his food, but he loves all food. Good quality ingredients overall, will keep as part of rotation of other high quality food. Chewy has one of the better pricing plus delivered to the door, love it.

Merrick Grain-free Dry Dog
This is a great dry dog food as I think the entire Merrick line is. Unfortunately, the higher the protein, minus the fillers, equals 4 ravenously hungry dogs in my house :-(. I have extremely high energy dogs. Have tried several brands of grain free......just doesn't work for mine. I have friends whose dogs eat this and it works very well for them.
