    Great for picky eaters

    By KCoy on Nov 16, 2020

    We bought this because of the ingredients list, wanting to give our dog higher quality food is very important. We wont/ cant buy anything else. If its not authority my dogs wont touch it. Theyre coats are sleek and we never have any issues with their breath, teeth or bodily functions. All in all a great dog food.

    Authority Beef

    By BarleyandBadinsMom on Oct 19, 2020

    Our dogs love this food. It has beef nuggets/bits in it that are similar to beef jerky. I am super happy that I can get this delivered from Chewy because Petsmart is inconsistent with availability. I understand they are the same company however the delivery is a huge benefit!!

    No tender pieces

    By Jenn on Jul 28, 2020

    I bought this food for my 16 y/o pup as I was under the impression that it actually had soft “tender” pieces in it, it does not. I have to add water and wet food for him to be able to eat it. The pieces that look like they should be soft are rather large and crunchy (pictured below).

    Authority adult tender bits

    By Turk on Jul 13, 2020

    I was told this product was supposed to have some soft pieces in it. My dogs are older and not as many teeth so it is somewhat hard to chew. I have had to add water and canned Authority to it to soften it up. After it softens they eat it.

    My 3 Shih Tzus love this food!!

    By Mommaof3shihtzus on Mar 26, 2020

    My fur babies love this food! It took awhile to find the right food. One of my little ones can’t have chicken so it was really limiting what I could give him. Not many dog food companies make beef flavored food. We tried Authority and we have no problems with my little one and the other 2 love it too!! This came nicely boxed and pretty quick too. The price was better on Chewy then at the pet store! I will keep ordering from Chewy from now on!!!

    Awesome Food!

    By Paki on Apr 15, 2020

    I have purchased the Authority before when Brody was a puppy and he LOVES the chicken tender blends so I thought I would try the beef this time! He LOVES it too! I am so glad we finally found a dog food that he will eat!

    Dogs do not like

    By Carol on Mar 6, 2020

    I have used the chicken flavor with success so I got the beef flavor for variety. Our girls are turning their noses up at it. I will go back to the chicken flavor with smaller bites.
