This Royal Canin formula is designed exclusively for pure breed German Shepherd puppies from 8 weeks to 15 months. The young German Shepherd tends to be more sensitive to digestive upset than other breeds, and also has alkaline skin just like an adult. Large puppies like German Shepherds grow quickly, and their active lifestyle can place stress on their joints that can have lifetime effects. That's why it's important to feed a diet that is tailor-made for their specific needs.

  • Appropriate calcium and phosphorus content for bone and joint health
  • An exclusive complex of antioxidants to support a puppy's natural defenses

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 Shepherd Puppies

Royal Canin's German Shepherd Puppy Dry Dog Food is designed exclusively for pure breed German Shepherd puppies from 8 weeks to 15 months.

Digestive performance: Digestive health is essential during German Shepherd puppies' growth period. Their digestive system is not yet fully developed and can't absorb nutrients in the same way adult dogs can. This formula takes into account digestive sensitivity common in German Shepherd puppies, and includes L.I.P. proteins to help maintain a balanced intestinal flora.

Bone & joint health: German Shepherd Puppy Dry Dog Food supports healthy bones and joints with appropriate calcium and phosphorus content. This exclusive formula also helps maintain an ideal weight.

Natural defenses: During the growth period, German Shepherd puppies' natural defenses are not yet fully developed. This formula includes an exclusive complex of antioxidants including vitamins E and C, lutein and taurine to maintain their natural defenses.

Exclusive Kibble

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

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 62 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great for health bad for grass My only dissatisfaction with this food is that my male puppy is killing my grass with urine spots. Coat is super healthy and shiny but I am Considering changing dog food. Anyone else have this issue? July 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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). March 31, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My pup loves the food Seems to be very good, no problems with my pup liking the food, very good for the breed July 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Royal Canine is a fantastic product. We raised one German Shepard puppy on Royal Canine Puppy food and had no desire to change. July 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Puppy Food Recently purchased a German Shepherd puppy and the breeder wanted us to continue with the food they had been feeding. So I purchased it from Chewy.com but LaKota developed really loose stool so bad I was concerned. So I changed him to Royal Canine puppy food. It checked in 3 days! The times of him having to go out to do his business had decreased to less than half. His coat was dull and dry - now its shiny and no signs of dryness. My Yorkie is on Royal Canine and is the only brand he will eat. My money is on Royal Canine all the way. June 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good My puppy initially didn't like the new food when we mixed it with his old, but as the old food started to run out, he started enjoying his meals more. Now that he's eating straight Royal Canin, he seems happier. June 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My puppy loves Royal Canin So far we like having the dog food delivered and also the price is so much better than pet smart. June 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Delivery, price, product. They have it all. Very fast delivery. Food came in heavy duty package. Better pricing than any store. Easy site to navigate. What more could you ask for? Already referred a neighbor. May 25, 2016
