    Finally something that works!

    By on

    After trying several different kinds of foods and several visits to the vet, finally found a solution to my GSD's stools. My last option was for me to start making his food, so thank goodness this worked. Ingredients are great, not like those other prescription diet foods with a bunch of preservatives and junk. I think I'm gonna feed my bud this for here on out! Fingers crossed it keeps working!

    They like it...

    By on

    Just got the dogs off NutriSource, grain-free. Their ingredients are highly controversial at this time. My dogs' breeder recommended Dr. Gary's Best Breed. Not only do my dogs like the food, their stomach likes it too...much better results with their stool than with any other brand I've tried. Considering that German Shepherds are noted for their weak stomachs this was a surprising and welcomed result. I will be using this food.

    Picky GSD wants second helping....

    By on

    I own a very picky eater who is very physically active. She loves this food and (with this food) now asks for (and receives) seconds. She has never asked for seconds before. My only complaint (hence less one star) is the size of the pellet. I wish they offered a larger pellet to help my dog's dentition too. However, she has better energy, increased coat shine and enjoys this food.

    Yummy Yummy!

    By on

    My two-year-old German Shepherd girl has not showed any excitements over her kibbles. I have been putting meat on top of her kibbles to get her eat her meals. Today the Fedex truck delivered this dry food. The package looks nice and I like the zipper closure. I gave my girl two cups for dinner after she just finished a good portion of a raw ox tail on the lawn. She came over and happily chowed down the new dry food from Dr Gary's!

    Great for our GSD!

    By on

    I love this brand! So far he's doing great on this brand. I love that the bag is resealable. His coat is so soft now and he's gaining healthy weight off of it. It doesn't bother his stomach either so that's def a plus. As a GSD he has a sensitive tummy but this is working well for him. I really like this is specific to GSD nutrients too so that's a plus!

    GSD Loves it!

    By on

    We switched to this food with hesitation after Iams discontinued their GSD breed specific food. The hesitation was due to our dog being VERY picky about her food often with GI upset. This was the first we tried after researching best foods for her breed and YAY...she lives it. Kibble size is perfect. She runs to her bowl at feeding and we have had zero GI issues with the change (took 5 different brands before we found the Iams worked). So glad we discovered this, only wish we would have tried sooner!! It's now our regular autoship!

    The best Dog food for the whole dog family!

    By on

    Both of our German Shepherds have been on this wonderful diet forever. They both tolerate it so well! Never diarrhea, vomiting or any other indications of an upset stomach. Oh and our Westie kept trying to eat it too, so he has been on it for years also. We really like it!

    Dr. Gary's Best Breed Holistic German Dry Dog Food

    By on

    Switched my German Shepherd's diet to one with grain. Have tried 2 other name brand foods and noticed his coat looking bleached out and an unusual amount of itching. Then I switch to Dr. Gary's Best Breed and after a couple of weeks his coat looks great with rich coloring and the itching has subsided. He likes this food.

    Can't say enough

    By on

    I switched to this food based on ingredients and reviews. I thought had my dog on good food before. Since she has been on this she has a new found energy and just has a spark that has not been there in awhile. I am so happy to have found this food!
