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.

  • Breeder Recommended It

    By on

    This came highly recommended by our breeder. Our puppy doesn't rush to eat it on most days (she prefers her "tuna fudge" homemade training treats), but she does eat it within about a 10 minute time span. It seems to agree with her system, and she goes potty like clockwork.

  • Great for small breed puppy

    By on

    This food is easy to digest for my puppy. My pup is very finicky by nature and doesn't seem to be ready to eat most of the time but she loves this brand of doggy food. I am so happy I found this brand and flavor

  • A good change

    By on

    I puppy sat this little guy for my daughter and he was fed a different dog food. I didn't have any food for him. I gave him the regular Buffalo chicken. He managed, but when I finally bought this for him, he scarfs this down with a wagging tail of appreciation. I have not let her take him back. I'm still puppy sitting and it's been almost a month. He looks forward to his meals.

  • Good wholesome product

    By on

    I appreciate the healthful ingredients in the dog food. Also, the size of kibble is good for our little yorkie puppy. Unfortunately, our dog wants wet food mixed with it and will sort out the little round pieces. Maybe those pieces are too hard for her to chew, since she has been losing her baby teeth???

  • Won't touch it

    By on

    This is the fourth bag of Blue Buffalo puppy food I have tried and I am giving up. I have decided it is better to have her eat anything than to have her eat nothing whether it is supposed to be great for her or not. I have even tried come canned Blue puppy food to try to get her to eat, but have quit and will feed it to my wild foxes.

  • Dogs refuse

    By on

    My dogs refuse to eat the Blue Buffalo puppy food. I sneak some in with their other food just to get them to eat it so it doesn't go to waste. Very disappointed.

  • This product is the best for puppies

    By on

    I would recommend anyone who has a pet to go through chewy.com. I priced out other sources and no one beats chewy. I received my products sooner than promised. And the expirations dates go over a year mark.
