Product Description

This Royal Canin formula is designed exclusively for pure breed German Shepherds over 15 months. The German Shepherd has a notably fragile digestive system, which often leads to soft stools, frequent digestive upset and sometimes bloating. Unlike other breeds, the German Shepherd’s skin is extremely alkaline and very sensitive. That's why it's important to choose a diet tailor-made for their specific needs.

Breed Specific Formulas

Every dog is unique. From the small, flat-faced Pug to the obesity-prone Labrador Retriever, Royal Canin Breed Health Nutrition is tailor-made to address the unique needs of pure breed dogs. These breed specific formulas benefit from the latest Royal Canin research on the selection of the best protein sources, unique nutrients and tailor-made kibbles.

Formulated for German Shepherds

Royal Canin's German Shepherd Adult Dry Dog Food is designed exclusively for pure breed German Shepherds over 15 months.

Digestive performance: This formula addresses sensitive digestion common in German Shepherds with highly digestible L.I.P. proteins and a selection of specific fibers. These limit intestinal fermentation and help maintain a balanced intestinal flora.

Healthy skin & coat: Appropriate food plays an important part in maintaining the quality of the skin and coat. German Shepherd Adult Dry Dog Food helps support the skin's role as a barrier with an exclusive complex of nutrients, and helps maintain skin and coat health with EPA and DHA.

Bone & joint support: German Shepherds tend to have a lively temperament that can lead to hard-working joints. This formula helps support healthy bones and joints and maintain an ideal weight.

Exclusive Kibble

German Shepherds have a long, strong muzzle with equally strong teeth. The size, shape and texture of the kibble in German Shepherd Adult Dry Dog Food is exclusively designed for easy pick up while also encouraging dogs to chew.

Why Pure Breed Dogs Need Tailored Nutrition

From their personalities to their distinctive physiologies, pure breed dogs have unique characteristics that make them sought-after and beloved companions. When choosing a formula, it's important to keep in mind the unique characteristics of your breed including:

Face and Jaw: All dogs fall into two basic jaw types: Brachycephalic or mesocephalic. Breeds with short, broad muzzles (like Bulldogs) are examples of a brachycephalic jaw. Breeds with a longer muzzle (like Labrador Retrievers) are examples of mesocephalic breeds. The jaw type, and even biting patterns can affect how a breed picks up kibble.

Skin Types: The skin's most important function is to serve as a barrier of protection-but not all breeds have the same skin type. From wrinkled and folded (which traps heat and moisture) to sensitive or water resistant, precise levels of key nutrients help to support a breed's unique skin health needs.

Distinctive Coats: There's more to a coat than meets the eye. From the color and texture to undercoats, each pure breed dog has a unique coat with unique needs.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 100 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by This may be too personal with my dog's health situation to benefit you. I only fed about 3 total cups of the food to him before discontinuing. My dog's stomach was gurgling a lot and he was regurgitating bile before I ordered the food. My breader highly recommended this food formulated especially for his breed and for digestive ease. I was gradually introducing the food to him but he got much worse almost immediately. I don't think it's a bad food but it just was not a food he can handle. Maybe get a sample or a small bag first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dogs like it Bear loves it,he took to immediately. He also is starring to bulk out a little more. I am glad I don't have to worry about them eating now or don't have to bribe them with wet food anymore. This is a great product for our German Shepard and we are happy with it also. May 20, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent for GSD My German Shepherd has major stomach and allergies. This product does very well to keep him balanced. And he loves it!! May 18, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works well for my dog We have used it for several years. My German Shepherd seems to like it (always 'wolfs' it down) and does not have any digestion issues. Reasonable 'waste' volume. A bit expensive, but good. May 9, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good for coat! Definitely an improvement in reducing shredding and appearance of coat. My dog seems to like it. The shape of food surprised me but he readily eats it. Would recommend. May 14, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Causes diarhea This product causes my GSD a lot of problems with loose stools and bloating. May 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for German Shepherds with gastro disorders Our GSD started having issues with his dog food at 8 months. Our vet put him on expensive food that she had to help get him straightened out. She then recommended a couple of choices that we could by a pet stores. He has been eating Royal Canine for GSD ever since and has had no issues. I highly recommend this to GSD owners. May 2, 2016
