  • With Deboned Salmon as the first ingredient, this food would have a stronger odor.

  • This food does not smell the best, but my 3 dogs love it. They like the smell and they don't like the beef after trying the salmon.

  • Of four bags only one had a very strong fishy smell. But any fish food will be smelly. Two of my three dogs are allergic to poultry. I've fed fish-based kibble for years and stinky beards and breath are just part of keeping my dogs healthy.

  • I think it smells awful. & friends visiting when we have fed the dogs instantly asked what smelled. BUT, the food itself is great & the price is right for a limited ingredient salmon food. I'll probably just stock up on things to freshen their breath. I now store the food container in my garage.

  • I switched my dog to this a few weeks ago and the salmon oil makes him smell really fishy. After about 2wks I could smell it coming from his skin. But his skin cleared up, eyes are no longer bloodshot, and overall is doing much better with his food allergies.

  • I don't think the smell is bad at all. My dogs seem to like it. I just started the Limited Ingredient a week ago.

  • It only smells when you are right up on it like putting it in the bowl. My Great Danes been on it for 4 years and I hate fish so if it was bad I would not have it in my home.

  • Pretty strong. Our dogs love it though. I don’t have to buy treats anymore. I use this for training too
