  • Built me some beefy puppies.

    By on

    Been feeding for almost year to my now 14 month old 85lb labrottie and my more recent addition, a now 65lb rescued young adult cattle dog/collie. Both were a little pudgy and squishy from being fed cheaper foods in the past. Both are absolutely ripped now and appropriately narrow at the waist. Nice clean teeth, shiny coats, breed appropriate energy levels. My big guy eats way more than the bag says he should during his growth spurts. Currently 6-8 cups a day and he's gaining only lean solid muscle. Smaller guy eats 4-6 cups. Very impressed, totally worth the money.

  • German Shepherd Approval

    By on

    I've been giving my German Shepherd this since I got him at 8 weeks. He loves it and so do I. His coat is soft and he's very healthy and where he needs to be. When I take him to the vet and he asked what food I have him on I told him "Blue Buffalo Large Breed Puppy" the vet said that's a great food, and very healthy for dogs.

  • I guess I am a fan of the Blue now!

    By on

    I was a skeptic of this food until the last few months. After hearing all sorts of bad things about dogs getting sick and recalls I almost didn't try it for my german shepherd puppy. She is food sensitive and picky on taste. I ran out of choices for large breed puppy food without corn(she refused to eat most of them) and so I picked up a bag of Blue to try and was pleasantly surprised with the results. She had bad gas for about a month, and now she has very little gas after finishing up the second bag. I think her system just needed extra time to adjust to the different ingredients. Her coat looks nice and she cleans her bowl, so she obviously enjoys the taste.

  • Bag was busted

    By on

    I would normally give this product 5 stars however it arrived in a bag that was ripped open in the box that it came in. The box was fine, so the issue lies with the packer. I was very disappointed. I have however purchased this item before in the store and think the product itself is a healthy choice for my pup and he loves it.

  • Love this food!!

    By on

    When we got our first puppy I switched him over to this food and he loves it, he's a German Shepherd mix. We recently got a golden retriever and just switched her to it completely. So far she loves it!! Although she's a little piggy when it comes to her food. I am now going to make the switch for our first dog to this same food in the adult kind since he's 7 months old and just got neutered. I don't see why he wouldn't love it just as much. They're also both the same price!! I love how fast everything comes to my house too!

  • Love my food but not the way it arrived

    By on

    I ordered 2 cases of can food, large bag of dry food and 2bags of treats. While I love all the items I got, the lg bag of food had a knife cut in it and was spilled all over in the box. Not happy about that because I had to find something to put all the dry dog food in for storage.

  • Blue puppy food not a good brand for my pup.

    By on

    My pit puppy does not like this puppy food,I have to mix in other ingredients to get her to eat her puppy food and sometimes she doesn’t eat it all. Do not care for this brand.I would rate this Blue product 0 but it told me I had to rate it.

    We’ve given our labs Blue Buffalo for the past six months. We’ve been really pleased with the product, its quality and the way it helps to maintain our dogs weight and shiny coat. Since we made the switch we haven’t had any skin issues.
