Okay, so I am a bit confused. All of the websites that look at dog food ingredients say this is a bad dog food and I have to agree based on the ingredients. BUT, I have seen so many 5 star customer reviews with great testimonials and even vet recommendations. I ended up with this food because I have a very picky 4 month old GSD. We tried all of the great foods, including raw and she just wasn't eating. She even went 24 hours refusing to eat because she didn't like what we were feeding her. So, off to the pet store and we brought home 3 dry dog foods and she chose this one! She is now eating well. I am adding supplements to make sure she gets what she needs. I really wanted to raise her on raw food, but she is having none of that. I guess I have a junk food puppy, but at least she is eating! Now we will see how she does on it longer term.

Rated 5 out of 5 by egyptianMama Saved our German Shepherd!
For months, we had struggled with irritable tummies, runny stools (if they were thicker than water, which was rare), and we were struggling to help our not-so-little guy gain weight. Then, we decided to take our chances and buy a big, expensive bag of food compared to all the things we'd been trying. We'd even tried rice with canned food three times a day! Even chicken and chicken livers! We tried it all! But within 24 hours (yes, 24 HOURS) on Royal Canin for German Shepherd puppies, we saw a big change. More solid stools (moving up to pretty darn close to hard stools with continued use), shinier coat, and slow but steady weight gain! We love this food and will never go back! We're even considering the Labrador Retriever food for our-- you guessed it-- Labrador Retriever! Thank you Royal Canin for saving our puppy!

I have been purchasing Royal Canin GS puppy food for months and my Maddy just loves it. The kibble is the perfect size. Price is right and the shipping is incredible. I get the dog food max 2 days even with the holidays!

This is the best type of food for our German Shepherd puppy. It is healthy and supports her growth and she absolutely loves it. My only gripe is that the portions don't seem accurate. My pup is fed the required amount and a little more and she is quite thin. My wife and I are very active with our pup but it still seems like she should be eating more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Steve Stands out as superior
First of all, this is the first dry bag dog food I've seen with a zip lock top (I bought the largest bag size). That fact alone impresses me. I can now "burp" off most excess air and close the bag -- which makes for better storage than even air-tight containers, which will still have a large amount of air as the food quantity goes down. The tightened bag will not "relax" even if I lift it up by the top, telling me that the seal holds well.
Second, there is a significantly stronger aroma from this food compared to others -- which I can only assume means it has "meatier" or "oilier" contents. I assume the food is "richer," because it smells richer to me.
Finally, I'm seeing tighter stools with this food than other premium puppy dry chow -- even when I mix it with premium canned. It's never easy to be certain which food is the best, but this food gives every clue that it stands a bit above the rest. That's enough for me (it's the best I can do, being that I can't run direct tests between puppies raised on this vs other brands).

Rated 3 out of 5 by Dogmom Was fine for a while, now time for a change
We've been feeding our 9 month old German shepherd puppy this food since we brought him home at two months. In the past month or so he's had loose stool most of the time, tries to eat grass every chance he gets, and will not eat this food any longer unless we mix something into it like veggies or an egg. We're going to try another brand for now to help with his stomach issues as he's clearly lost interest in eating this food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Maezi516 Best Puppy Food Ever !!!!
Excellent Purchase, Great Price, my German Shepherd puppy loves this food. Her coat is beautiful, eyes are really bright and happy !!
No complaints here; service was excellent from Chewy.com !! Even my puppie's vet wanted to know what I was feeding her.. told all my friends about chewy.com for their fur babies. The only problem I had was Fed-Ex and their slow delivery, four days late, when the food finally got here, I opened the bag and my German Shepherd Puppy stuck her head in the bag and started munching down, it was a fight to get her out of it so I could take it in the house.. she can't wait till it's feeding time, it also straighten up her loose bowel problem from the other puppy chow I was feeding her.. Thanks Chewy.com for this perfect food for not just my puppy, but for all breeds of canines and cats too !!
