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
  • Highly digestible proteins and a selection of specific fibers to limit intestinal fermentation and to help maintain a balanced intestinal flora
  • Exclusive complex of nutrients to support skin and coat health
  • Enriched with EPA and DHA to support healthy bones and joints
  • Kibble size, shape and texture is easy for this breed to pick up and encourages chewing

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?

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.

  • 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.

This food also comes in a different type of bag other than conventional paper, so that is a plus right there. He is no longer on maintenance allergy medicine. 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

    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!

  • Tummy troubles

    By on

    Shepherds at times, have inherent tummy troubles and I tried a few different dog foods. But the best was Royal Canin. I have been feeding her this for around 9 years. Tummy troubles gone! The cost has gone up and up getting it at pet supply stores, and a friend told me about Chewy.com. The savings has been great, and having it delivered saves hauling it in and out of the car.

  • Must have for German Shepherds

    By on

    We have had Multiple generations of German shepherds and this is by far the food of choice. The dogs fur, skin, weight, stature, teeth, nails, activeness, EVERYTHING is far better than without. You can smell the meat in this food. My husband and son have commented on eating our Shepherd's food for dinner and I am a good cook.

  • competitive pricing and dogs love it!

    By on

    I would definitely recommend this to other GSD owners. My dogs love them - My husband actually bought another bag of regular dog food from the store and my dogs dramatically gained weight. Maybe the balance was off. Once I took them off the bad stuff and put them back on Royal Canine GSD food, they turned back to their original forms. The prices are definitely more affordable at Chewy rather than other places.

  • Rescue GS With Many Allergy and Skin Issues!

    By on

    I have had Prince on Royal Canin Veterinary formula for the past three years - I am now mixing these two with the hopes that his immune system is stronger and he can go back to a regular formula. I love that the shape of the pieces make him chew not just inhale the bowl. He is the kindest German Shepherd you could hope to meet and I just want him to be happy in his later years! A good diet is essential!

  • Dex loves it!

    By on

    Dexter was on another brand on breed specific food, but was having some dry skin... I wanted to try another brand that could help with his dry skin so we tried RC. Dex gobbled it up, and after a few weeks his coat is starting to feel healthier. I'll also add he had stomach issues when we were trying to find him the right food, until we found his former breed spec. food... So far, we've had no stomach issues since switching to RC.

  • Best dog food for our dog!

    By on

    Our G.S. has stomach issues, and every dog food we've tried, ended up leading to loose stools. Our vet recommended this brand and we tried it. We will never go back to any other brand. His stomach is doing great

  • Awesome

    By on

    Was very hesitant to switch my dog over to this dog food, all the reviews were good so I figured I would give it a try. So glad I did, its been over a month now, and his poop is the most formed and solid I have seen in over a year. He took to it right away, did not even have to mix with his old dog food. So glad I made the switch!
