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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent, good quality and they love it Great product. They love it and it makes their coats beautiful and I've noticed less shedding (despite the fact they are German Shedders) and more energy. I would recommend to anyone with a German Shepherd. September 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Product My shepherd has a lot more energy, and her coat stays shiny with a deep black color to it. I have always used Royal Canin brand and always will September 20, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by great product This product was always great with all my shepherds. Good bone structure and nice fur .unfortunately I have to stop my auotship becausemy two new puppies now just a year old will not eat it. But I still would recommend . These two dogs I have now is just picky. Good producto September 13, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by ALWAYS READ THE LABEL I purchased this product without fully reading the ingredients. My fault--not the product. I had been using another brand for years and thought I could do better. When the first ingredient listed was chicken by products I changed my order back!! The rest of the list was a "what is that"? May be a good product--but not for my GSDs September 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great price and fast delivery This was our first experience ordering from Chewy & my dogs first experience with Royal Canin. We will be repeating the excellent experience. September 17, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by This food is very good. Our dog girl German Shepperd just turn 1 year old, so i decided to change her large puppy food for adult meal. She likes it so much! I'm glad to find this specific food for her breed. The only thing i don' t like it because is a big piece and do not fit in her bowl. September 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Apparently, the best food ever. I have always fed my dogs high-end food: Blue, Natural Balance, etc. I went to Chewy to order our current food, and came across this one. One of my dogs is a GSD with recurrent ear infections and hematomas (from a previous owner who didn't treat her correctly), so I was interested in the GSD-specific formula. Turns out, all of my dogs are obsessed with this food - it has a really meaty smell, and the shape forces the more gluttonous members of the family to slow down and chew. Our GSD's coat is super shiny. I don't think we will be trying any other foods anytime soon. August 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My sheperd loved it right away Introductory price was unbelievable. Arrived 2 days after order was filled. My dog pushed her old food to the side and dug right in and finished it in 5 minutes. Too soon to tell but I hope that it is the weight loss answer I have been waiting for. Food contains all the supplements I have been buying separately for her, this food will save me money in the long run. August 30, 2016
