    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!

    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!

    Great Dog Food!

    By on

    Let me start out by saying that my dogs will eat just about anything at mealtime. They do seem to genuinely enjoy this food, however the difference I see is in their improved energy level, shinier coats, and they are more engaging overall. They feel pretty good on this food and it shows. I've been feeding it for about 2 weeks so far, and one is still transitioning.

    A bit too small...

    By on

    Ingredients seem great. The Big problem is the pellets are too Small for a German Shepard. Compare the pellet size of "Royal Canin" GSD specific dog food and you'll immediately see the proper size for this size dog. I'll continue to use, but at a 15% proportion for their mix.

    Greatly Impressed

    By on

    We tried this dog food for our shepherd mix because of the scratching issues. It is already proving to help her coat and to decrease the itching/scratching that shepherds seem to have. We are on auto ship and we are looking forward to having our baby be happier and healthier without all the scratching! Glad we found this dog food.

    Likes the best

    By on

    I was searching for a new dog food for my 100 pound GSD that was not grain free. Out of 5 that I tried, this is the one that he likes best. Sadly, he is not at all food motivated. So it is a challenge for me. What makes this Momma very happy is that his stools are no longer runny! I would recommend this.

    Didn't work for my dog

    By on

    My dog is very sensitive and often has diarrhea or eats dirt if the food does not agree with them. While they ate it it did not help with either problems
