Description

This Royal Canin formula is designed exclusively for pure breed German Shepherds over 15 months. The German Shepherd has a notably fragile digestive system, which often leads to soft stools, frequent digestive upset and sometimes bloating. Unlike other breeds, the German Shepherd’s skin is extremely alkaline and very sensitive. That's why it's important to choose a diet tailor-made for their specific needs.

Key Benefits

  • Designed for German Shepherds over 15 months

  • Exclusive complex of nutrients to support skin and coat health
  • Enriched with EPA and DHA to support healthy bones and joints

Why Pure Breed Dogs Need Tailored Nutrition

From their personalities to their distinctive physiologies, pure breed dogs have unique characteristics that make them sought-after and beloved companions. When choosing a formula, it's important to keep in mind the unique characteristics of your breed including:

Face and Jaw: All dogs fall into two basic jaw types: Brachycephalic or mesocephalic. Breeds with short, broad muzzles (like Bulldogs) are examples of a brachycephalic jaw. Breeds with a longer muzzle (like Labrador Retrievers) are examples of mesocephalic breeds. The jaw type, and even biting patterns can affect how a breed picks up kibble.

Skin Types: The skin's most important function is to serve as a barrier of protection-but not all breeds have the same skin type. From wrinkled and folded (which traps heat and moisture) to sensitive or water resistant, precise levels of key nutrients help to support a breed's unique skin health needs.

Distinctive Coats: There's more to a coat than meets the eye. From the color and texture to undercoats, each pure breed dog has a unique coat with unique needs.

Breed Specific Formulas

Every dog is unique. From the small, flat-faced Pug to the obesity-prone Labrador Retriever, Royal Canin Breed Health Nutrition is tailor-made to address the unique needs of pure breed dogs. These breed specific formulas benefit from the latest Royal Canin research on the selection of the best protein sources, unique nutrients and tailor-made kibbles.

Formulated for German Shepherds

Royal Canin's German Shepherd Adult Dry Dog Food is designed exclusively for pure breed German Shepherds over 15 months.

Digestive performance: This formula addresses sensitive digestion common in German Shepherds with highly digestible L.I.P. proteins and a selection of specific fibers. These limit intestinal fermentation and help maintain a balanced intestinal flora.

Healthy skin & coat: Appropriate food plays an important part in maintaining the quality of the skin and coat. German Shepherd Adult Dry Dog Food helps support the skin's role as a barrier with an exclusive complex of nutrients, and helps maintain skin and coat health with EPA and DHA.

Bone & joint support: German Shepherds tend to have a lively temperament that can lead to hard-working joints. This formula helps support healthy bones and joints and maintain an ideal weight.

Exclusive Kibble

German Shepherds have a long, strong muzzle with equally strong teeth. The size, shape and texture of the kibble in German Shepherd Adult Dry Dog Food is exclusively designed for easy pick up while also encouraging dogs to chew.

Why Royal Canin?

Over time, Royal Canin has accumulated vast knowledge about cats and dogs that only extensive research, scientific study and tireless talks with pet professionals, veterinarians and owners can provide. That knowledge led them to develop precise nutrition for cats and dogs. Each Royal Canin formula is tailored to pets' size, age, lifestyle and breed and contains more than 50 perfectly balanced nutrients for the most effective diet possible.

Their focus on science puts pets at the heart of the formulation process, choosing only ingredients that optimize the food's nutritional content. Royal Canin also continues to invest heavily in new technology to ensure their quality and food safety systems remain state-of-the-art, so pets can continue to benefit from the latest in food health and nutrition.

It arrived in one day and our German Shepard had the food he needed. They even helped me with my future purchases with auto ship so he will never run out of food. THANK YOU Chewy!

  • Molly Loves It!

    By on

    The flavor seems to be great. I first got the Royal Canin for my chihuahua and she will eat it plain and that's a good sign. The large pieces are good for my Molly as a masticatory myocitis survivor, she needs the chewing to maintain her chewing muscles as well as being good for her teeth. Its a keeper and a great substitute for a snack when we are out of treats.

  • Best Food!

    By on

    I was recommended this food when my dog began having issues with her Blue Buffalo brand. My dog has a very sensitive stomach and after having no problems for years with the same Blue Buffalo bag she began having loose stool and vomiting again. I asked my vet and she told me that Blue Buffalo changes its ingredients but does not always list them on the bag, which is why she could be having these issues now. She recommended that I switch her to Royal Canine and things could not be better. The shape of the food allows my dog to actually eat instead of inhaling her food, resulting in less gagging/vomiting. She hasn't had loose stool in a very long time (unless she gets to the cat food!) and overall I was recommended this food when my dog began having issues with her Blue Buffalo brand.

  • Best food at best price

    By on

    We have tried so many foods, all price ranges, and our German shepherd loves this one...I don't have to add to the food, he doesn't get sick, and we love it. Now, for the "Chewy" price...can't beat it. It was delivered in 2 days, as advertised...we are very happy customers.

  • Our Dogs Love Royal Canin!

    By on

    Our 2 young black German Shepherds absolutely love Royal Canin, and it is so good for them. We never any upset tummies and their coats are so shiny. Also so impressed with Chewy.com, buying our Royal Canin from Chewy is a great saving especially with the auto ship feature, and you can't beat the free 2 day delivery. With the savings we usually treat the boys to a new toy!! So I am sure they love Chewy too!

  • The Best for Shepherds

    By on

    In the past I had a Shepherd with stomach issues and it was the only food she thrived on. My present rescue Shepherd has documented allergies to storage mites which can be found not only in cardboard boxes, but also conventional paper bags that hold dog food. There was also a question of grain sensitivity, which along with other food allergies, can be hard to diagnose even with allergy testing. I took a chance and switched him over to this with great results! He's at a perfect weight, has a shiny coat that sheds little, and is full of energy and vigor. His stools are minimal and firm. Best of all, he loves the crunchy nuggets! It's great for helping to keep his teeth healthy.

I will never change his diet --- Royal Canin is the very best! And I don't have to go to the pet store, nor struggle getting it into or out of the car, or into my home. Chewy's lightning fast delivery and the best prices, plus auto ship cannot be beat! Highly recommend this Royal Canin breed specific food! … more

  • Excellent size and ingredients

    By on

    My 9 yr. old shepherd lab suddenly stopped chewing his kibble and started just swallowing most of it. His stools subsequently became unhealthy looking and he was hungry all the time. After researching larger kibble I read many reviews about this particular food and they were very positive. So we tried it and all is getting back to normal and he not only loves the food but he chews every bite.

  • Love, Love, Love

    By on

    My 2 year old German Shepherd loves this stuff! We had been ordering Taste of the Wild, but it turned out he had an allergy to it. We ended up donating 20 pounds of it to the local animal shelter since we couldn't use it and ordered Royal Canin. I should have originally started with this product! He eats his entire amount everyday! He has never done that with any other food. His coat is healthier, his eating habits, his GI tract is way better, and his energy levels seem better on it!
