Questions & Answers

How many Quarts does the 40lb bag contain?
Answer by ChewyJun 05, 2019
There are approximately 52 quarts in the 40-pound bag.

How long would a bag stay good for? I’ve only got one puppy to feed.
Answer by ChewyAug 15, 2018
Ideally a bag of opened food should be consumed within 6 weeks. If placed within an air tight container, it may extend the freshness of the food.

What is the maximum amount of calcium and phosphorus? What's the ratio?
Answer by ChewyMay 22, 2018
This formula has a Calcium content of 1.2% and a Phosphorus content of 1.0%. Products are tested to be 100% nutritionally complete and balanced for your pet's life stages. Although the manufacturer doesn't test for the maximum percentages, their ingredients are approved for use in pet foods by the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO), the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) and the Pet Food Industry Group (PFI).

Which food should be the next step down from puppy food we have a 2&3 year old rat terriers and they are very active
Answer by ChewyOct 27, 2017
Transitioning to any of the adult Black Gold Explorer formulas would work for your growing pups. The Explorer Chicken Meal & Brown Rice Formula closely resembles this puppy formula.

wish it came in a smaller bag option

I got this from my breeder and really wanted to continue feeding to my puppy.Its a great food and she loved it. It only comes in a 40lb bag which is way too big for how much my puppy needs to eat and ony having a 6 week shelf life once opened. I wish it came smaller.

Premium Food!

Puppy food is premium. Decent smell. Overall price was good compared to other vendors. Hard to find for sure! Chewy came to the rescue. In the end we had to change foods for our Puppy. But I still want to give it a good review because it's not the company's fault, my pup just needs a different kind of diet unfortunately! Still 5*!! Overall!

Great Puppy Feed

Got a sample from the breeder, and tried to switch our pup to a more mainstream brand. Puppy wouldn’t do it, so bought Black Gold from Chewy, and this is all he will eat. 3x a day he devours this stuff. I will stick with what works. It is a higher priced item, but what do I know? I am just the dumb human in the room.

Works for us

This is the food our breeder uses and what he sent home with our puppy. Our puppy devours it! His coat is soft, eyes bright and he has plenty of energy! Stool is firm and good frequency. Maybe not "the best of the best" but seems to work well for us and our pup.

Good kibble!

This is what the breeder was feeding the litter so we went with this! She hoovers it, it seems easy to chew and we get good poops!

X - Pen - Sive!

Bought a 40lb bag of Black Gold Puppy Food for $30 more than a local place retails it for....should have done my research. More expensive & less convenient!

Amish Puppy Dog Food

Only food my puppy will eat. Couldn't find it anywhere locally in Maryland. Had to order it online since only PA evidently stocks it. Puppy loves it.
