About BLUE Buffalo

Blue Buffalo began with unconditional love and some furry inspiration from a large breed Airedale, Blue. When Blue's family started a pet food company, their vision was clear. They wanted every pet parent to be able to feed their pet with the same care they would feed family. So they created the #1 natural pet specialty food to help furry family members live happy, healthy lives. Of course, they named it after Blue.

  • Great for both our giant and large dogs

    By on

    We finally got on board with having our dog food delivered. We have a 135lb Anatolian, and a 60lb Border Collie. They go through about 70lb of food per month, so this has proved to be both convenient and economical. We also love the blue Buffalo brand, it's great to have consistency in their diet instead of having to hope the store we visit has something decent.

  • Guard Dogs Do Well

    By on

    This doesn't seem to be my dogs' favorite flavor, but I mix it so that they are getting a few flavors and include yummy Brewers Yeast to help against fleas so they eat well. I feel good knowing that they are getting large breed food with this brand and they eat it well.

  • Great Dane

    By on

    Switched this month from Taste of the Wild, which he really likes, in order to take advantage of the Glucosamine and chondroitin because he is older and having a little trouble in that area. It took him awhile to decide to try it. He eats is but he doesn't love it. Can't see any results from the additives yet but we're not through a bag yet.

    We have a 17 year old Black/Tan Coonhound. He loves his Blue Buffalo dogfood. I contribute his long life to being lazy and his Blue Buffalo dogfood. Thank you for your care in making “real ingredient” dogfood. And Spanky thanks you too.

  • Dog is not crazy about it

    By on

    I don,t think this is her favorite food , she does not dive into it like some other food she has had. She will eat it but sometime will wait to late in the morning or late at night.

  • Blue is amazing.

    By on

    I don't think my GSD would've ever gotten as big as he did without the help of Blue his entire life. From puppy to adult, he has never had anything else.

  • no more mealtime issues!

    By on

    We have a senior dog with cognitive issues & a boxer with OCD issues & a cat who loves to drive us all crazy when it was mealtime for the dogs. Both of our dogs love this food so much that they eat without the routine of before meal treats to get them interested in eating, securing their person space & the cat, and watching to be sure they were finished as they always left some food in their bowls which the cat is not allowed to eat. Now they are eager to eat & eat their full serving. No chance for the cat to get any!

  • Healthy Food = Healthy Dogs

    My German Shepherd loves Blue Buffalo food and continues to be in great health. Her coat is soft like rabbit fur and this is a great sign, among others, of her inside health as well.

  • Just what my dog needed

    By on

    Had trouble finding the right food for our German Shepherd. He is a very picky eater and was losing weight. This dry food, missed with some of the Blue Buffalo Canned did the trick. His weight is up to where it should be and he looks great!
