Paid too much

Found this feed locally for 34.00 plus tax. I paid over 50.00 to chewy now I have to wonder how a Mom and Pop feed store can sell it for 34.00 and make a living. It is a good feed you are just charging too much for it

My dog likes it

My Siberian Husky likes it way more than Purina dog food! So I'll probably buy this from now on!

Dogs love it.

Was looking for an alternative to Purina Pro Sport since our dogs have started tuning their noses up at it. Tried Black Gold and the dogs love it! Have one dog that hadn't eaten regularly for weeks, she is now gobbling up her food. We have Vizslas.

Sasha likes!

My dog is not a fussy eater but she seems to enjoy, what I buy I don't stick with one brand but look for food that's aren't chicken normally but look for the best bang for the buck, but I tried this because of price and she eats all that's in her bowl, she is a pitt,roti,lab, mix!

Sadly, Pups Wouldn't Eat

My Lab and Chihuahua were kind of angry at this particular brand of kibble, which made it go, untouched, all day long. They're very good eaters, so they told me, loud and clear, " Mom, are you kidding?". Customer Service was so incredible and refunded the purchase price......So, I bought another item from Chewy that I know they'll enjoy! I adore Chewy! Thanks for making the transaction hassle-free.

Dogs loved it

I have 6 dogs and feeding them good quality food on a budget can be tricky. I feel like with this food I can do that.

Picky dogs did not like it!

I have to put a flavor booster on all their dog food; as I have not found one they like!

Stale dog food.

My dogs have been eating black gold for years.when we moved I could no longer find it in stores so I ordered from here. It shipped fast which I loved but the 2 bags I bought smelt stale and my dogs won’t ever eat it.

It's dog food...

We have three dogs. None of them like this food. This is my first time trying it, and I won't be reordering. They've grudgingly eaten a bit over half of one bag. I'm not even going to open the other one. The bag I opened has a rather rank "rancid oil" smell about it. I see lots of positive reviews, so maybe I got a bum bag. I'll be looking for something else...
