    I have two dogs and thought that buying this expensive food would be better for them. I was wrong, they don't like the flavor and do not like the food. I will never buy this brand again !

    Great for my dogs!

    First off my dogs loveeeee this food. They were so excited when I even opened their first bag. I did my research and I was looking for a good brand that has never had a recall and this was on the list. Not only do my dogs seem healthier and leaner. My large dog that has a lot of skin issues her skin is becoming softer and more manageable. Don’t know if it’s the change of diet or what but I believe they co relate. Amazing I emailed the customer service about some questions I was answered in a day and they were super nice. Great brand I recommend to anyone!
