About Blue Buffalo

The Blue Buffalo story started with a beloved Airedale named Blue, whose family wanted to feed him the best pet food possible. After searching for high-quality options, they decided to create their own food using natural ingredients, real meat first, and only the highest standards. That promise still drives them to seek out the healthiest ways to feed and nurture pets, and it lives on every time you fill your pet’s bowl with BLUE.

Both dogs gobbled it up when served at mealtimes!

A check of ingredients showed this is nutritious and healthy for our Kuzavas and Shepherd/Coyote mixed breed kiddos!

Good food, bad packaging.

My dog enjoys the dog food and he has done well on it thus far. I have purchased this bag from two online retailers, including Chewy. Of the three bags I received, they have all been torn open with dog food all over the shipping box. It seems the type of packaging Blue Buffalo is using does not hold up very well to standard shipping practices.

It's okay...

The size of the kibble was larger than we're use to but our dog seemed unphased by the size. She would initially eat it without anything mixed into it (she's spoiled/picky) but after a few days she refused to eat it unless some form of wet food was mixed into it. the bag is a nice size but I seem to go through it a little faster. I know Blue Buffalo is a little on the more pricier side so I'm not sure if this would be a repurchase as I can find other dog foods with the same quality for a better price point.

My girls really seem to enjoy it!

I received this complementary for testing purposes. I felt confident that this product had good ingredients and was safe for my girls to eat (I have two blue heelers). The are a bit picky when it comes to dry food but they really seemed to enjoy this food! They ate it right away and have been eating it for a few weeks now. I will definitely keep it mind for next time we go grocery shopping.

Ruff Ruff this tastes great!

“Ruff, Ruff” ( or in human-speak, Yum Yum, Give me more!). Floxie loves the Blue Wilderness Chicken! I love the protein content and healthy grains! For a dog who is a really picky eater due to severe digestive issues, this is a step in the right direction. This healthy food is good for his stomach and for his tastebuds.

High quality

We have all three of our dogs on this food and it is a great nutritional option for them. The wholesome ingredients it contains gives me peace of mind that I’m feeding them a high quality food that will nourish them and help them live long healthy lives. They all enjoy this food and the 24 lb. bag is a convenient option for 3 dogs. I would recommend and will purchase this food again.

She loves it

I received a bag of this for free for testing purposes. I am so glad I did too cause I would of never bought this for my dog. She absolutely loves this. When I got it in the mail, she got so excited, she was ready for a bite. She likes this dog food and my dad is a bit picky when it comes to what she's eating. Glad I finally found something that she enjoys to eat.

Dogs Choice

Our dogs loved the Blue Buffalo. I have an English Bull Terrier who has sensitive a lot of the breed. I slowly switched her over and she loved it. It didn't cause her to have any flare ups. My Blue Heeler fancied the food so much he would wait at the bag every morning for some.

Amazing Dog food

This dog food is exactly what I was looking for in a good quality name brand. My dogs absolutely loved it and it was very easy to transition them on to it! It was the perfect size for my two dogs and awesome blend of quality chicken and grains. My dogs coat was shinier and healthier looking. Plus this dog food has a great price point!

Picky Pup loves it!

We normally purchase the chicken and rice version for our older gal so this was a no brainer when they asked us to try this free in exchange for a review. She is very picky so I was suprised she took to this so fast. I mixed her food but she wanted to pick out and eat only this one, haha.
