Nutritious and Chester likes it

It's nutritional and Chester likes it.. I don't think he cares too much for the little black round pieces because they are harder to chew. Chester is over 1 year and this is the only dry food I have ever given him. I will continue feeding him the Blue Life Protection until he's 2 yrs. old because it has a high protein content and the 1st ingredients are deboned chicken, chicken meal, brown rice, oatmeal, barley, fish meal, and then some added fruits and vegetables.

Not recommended by my vet

While I thought I was doing the right thing my vet didn't recommend Blue Buffalo due to some uncertain results. She did give 3 other brands she was comfortable with. Rated low because of lack of confidence

Blue Buffalo LP Puppy Chicken& Dry Rice

My Schnauzer has been on this since he was 8 weeks old with no tummy issues. He will be 2 in January. He is healthy and happy. We now have our Frenchie on it. She loves it as well

Nope don’t recommend

I have ordered this several times for my German Shepard puppy. She is 7 1/2 months old and she just REFUSES to eat this! I have tried mixing it with wet food and she just eats around it and leaves the dry food. I feel like I have wasted my money for months. I still have the last bag unopened and still in the box.

vet says their doing great

I asked my vet what I should be feeding them. The breeder had them on Blue Buffalo puppy formula. The vet said, "Don't change anything, they look great." Chewy is very reasonable priced and they ship fast. Thank you, Chewy

Highly rated but

This food was one of the highest rated puppy foods on Dog Food Advisor. However, it smells awful and my puppy hates it. I am going to be trying something different

Packaging my shipment

I have no problem with the Blue Buffalo dog food; however, I also received a container of glucosamine which came open in the box. The contents were loose inside the box. Very disappointing!

Great Product

I use this with the same brand wet food since my puppy is now 6 months old I am trying to wean her off the wet food as it is my preference to give them dry food once they are adults.

Blue Buffalo Puppy

Our puppy loves this food! No issues whatsoever! We started on another food from the breeder, but made the change to Blue Buffalo and could not be happier!
