    Just read about how zero grain foods might not be best for dogs, so I decided to try this. Maggie is 5 years old, and she has never, EVER enjoyed any dry food, until this one. She gobbles it down without the slightest hesitation. It is pretty unbelievable. Thanks again, Chewy!!

    Need Smaller Size

    By Jade on Dec 5, 2019

    My dog loves this food. Use it as treats along with it being her everyday food. Just wish it would come in smaller sizes. My baby is only 8 pounds and eats a total of 4 oz. per day. Bought the 30 pound bag and over 8 months later have only used a little over half the bag. I am afraid the food will go bad before she eats all of it.

    Decently priced, and good for dogs without allergies.

    By AuthorityDFTender on Oct 31, 2019

    I've had my dog on Authority for a while, and she really loves the tender blends vs the regular one. The only issue I have with Authority is that, because of it's low price, it has very low-end ingredients. My dog has now developed an allergy to Authority Dog Food and we have to have her on higher-end foods. I definitely recommend this food for people who have very healthy pets, not so much if they have any stomach or skin sensitivities or allergies. Hopefully Authority can get better ingredients, as I know they've been improving over the years!

    Perfect for my fussy girl

    By lou9119 on Oct 25, 2019

    My dalmador doesn't eat too much so the size is perfect and the added bonus of dry meat, peas, and carrots. She's about 70 lbs and this size takes about 2 months for her to go through.

    they like it

    By Jayde on Sep 10, 2019

    I was looking for smallish kibble for medium sized dogs. Most were for small dogs, but mine don't like the larger bites. This seems to be working. I like subscribing so I can get the larger bags without having to lug them home from town.
