Grain-Free Recipes Designed for Small Breed Dogs

Wellness knows small breed dogs have specific requirements when it comes to their nutrition. That's why they developed a CORE Small Breed Formula especially for little dogs, providing optimal calories in a smaller kibble size. This recipe is formulated with high-quality protein to help support the higher energy needs of small dogs and Omega fatty acids from salmon oil for healthy skin and coat.

Supporting Your Dog's Optimal Health to the CORE

Wellness CORE follows the nutritional philosophy that pets, based on their primal ancestry, thrive on a diet mainly comprised of meat. CORE formulas are packed with quality animal protein without fillers or grains, plus botanicals and nutritional supplements. These unique, grain-free recipes support and nurture your pet, contributing to his inner wellbeing all the way through to his core.

Why is CORE Different?

Unlike many grain-free diets, Wellness CORE considers your pet's whole health by ensuring the overall nutritional equation remains appropriate for everyday feeding. Higher protein can also mean higher fat, minerals and calories. By thoughtfully selecting specialized ingredients and managing nutritional ratios, CORE delivers protein-focused nutrition thoughtfully - with balance, not excess.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 133 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good quality This food is overall a good quality with ingredients that sound wonderful, and prove to be so when fed to your companion for a few weeks. The kibble is small and triangular shaped, it seems to be easier for the smaller dogs to break it up and eat their meal. Wellness core smells good even to me, and apparently taste good to my chihuahua. For a good while she was on earthborn and enjoyed the food, but began to eat it less and less and so has been transitioned over to wellness core. Chewy was helpful and pointed me in the right direction and I am grateful that they did. The food is consistent in size throughout the bag and does not crumble as many foods have been prone to do, I am looking at you earth born. If you have a picky little eater then I say that it would not do you any harm to buy a sample of this and give it a try! July 15, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Pippa says, "Meh." That this formula is as nutritious as claimed, I have no doubt is true. I can only judge it on the basis of taste. On that score I must bow to the subjective wisdom of Pippa, a small, white dog without pedigree. Lately, Pippa is peevish and now utters only isolated syllables where once she would speak in complete sentences. She will not tell me directly that she does not like this dog food. “Meh.” is the most I get out of her as she turns from the briefly sniffed tho’ untasted kibble to the nearby water bowl. As if to assuage her hunger she loudly laps it up. She looks again at the kibble, then at me, turns away and exits. I hear her nails clicking as she prances up the hallway. Half-a-day later, she quietly returns to the kitchen and cleans the bowl. Pippa, as I say, is a dog, not a cat. With a creature like that to advise me, my reviews are worthless. Buy this product. Your dog will probably love it. May 30, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Small pieces are perfect for small breed dogs! I only buy wellness brands for my pomsky, peaches, because I find they are a highly nutritional quality product for her July 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by He likes it! Dog sitting for a friend. Clancy was being feed a common dry food mixed with can food and water and still just looked at it for awhile. I gave Clancy a taste of the Wellness large breed (for my Shepherds) and he ate it dry, no problem. I purchased the same in small breed from Chewy and he likes it straight out of the bag. I like wellness and I really like Chewy.com July 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good quality, and the dogs love it. The product tests 5 stars. The dogs really seem to like it. Enough said! July 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Small bites and grain free My dog loves this food. Has been eating it over a year. And Chewy has an excellent price. Plus I don't have to run to the store. The grain free has helped his allergies. July 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Best I switched my two dachshund mixes to this food after one started going anorexic from a sudden dislike of a competitor's brand that ended up all over the news for lying about ingredients. I can't say enough about how wonderful this food is. Both have been on this food over a year and never get tired of the taste. They've never refused to eat. In hindsight it is clear that they both needed more protein. This food is very, very nutrient dense and has the perfect balance of what my dogs need. They have both trimmed up a few pounds from very specific portion control on this food. The bag always smells fresh when you crack the seal and the kibble size is tiny. Product is consistent every time. Their vets are impressed and I always recommend this brand to anyone looking for a dog food. I hope Wellness never changes this formula because we'd be lost without it. April 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Our 7yo small dog mix has energy? I was introduced to and started using grain free dry dog food when we adopted our first small breed dog three years ago. The most important thing I know about grain free food is that my dog has never been sick. I recently changed her grain free dry food to Wellness CORE Grain-Free Small Breed Formula because of the great reviews on taste. Our young lady disliked her other grain free kibble and stuck up her nose if I didn't add fresh diced carrots, apple and canned chicken to her dinner. When her new kibble arrived I opened the bag immediately and offered some to "the princess" and she absolutely loves it all by itself! She accepts it as a treat and I'm very happy. I am also thrilled that this dry food gives her more energy. She used to run for the first few blocks of her daily run/walk but now she runs for 10 blocks then finally succumbs to walking. I will continue to spoil by adding fresh fruits and veggies to her dinner. I am happy it comes in a 12 lb bag with a zip closure. Don't forget....you get what you pay for! November 28, 2015
