Are Dr. Gary's dog foods dye free?
Answer by ChewyAug 06, 2019
Dr. Gary's dog foods are dye-free.

I noticed there is garlic powder amongst the ingredients: Wouldn't this be harmful for my dog?
Answer by ChewyApr 21, 2020
When used in small amounts, garlic can help support the immune system and liver. It helps the cardiovascular system prevent blood clots, and reduces cholesterol/fat build up in the blood and heart. It also aides in the fight against bacterial, viral, and fungal infections, and increases the rate of killing off parasites. Garlic also helps increase the palatability of products.

How big are the kibbles
Answer by ChewySep 25, 2019
This formula has kibble that is slightly larger than a pencil eraser.

What’s the big difference between the Best Breed German dry dog food and the Best Breed large breed dry dog food?
Answer by ChewyAug 10, 2020
The German Dog Diet was the original large breed formula. The Large Breed Dog Diet has little more fat and contains prebiotic and probiotics.

excellent kibbles

after researching in december what to feed our new GSD pup, i chose this brand over the other german shepherd specific kibbles. It was a good choice; Feeding mainly this food and a can of beyond wild wet food at night, our pup went from 13lbs on dec 6th to a healthy 51lbs as of a couple days ago and he is physically developing great.. kibbles aren’t huge for a large breed food but, they are still large enough for our boy to still chew on them.. Love the easy to re-zip ziplock bags and that the inside of them has a foil like coating that doesn’t absorb into the kibbles and keeps food fresh.

Best food for my German Shepard

My German Shepard was gaining weight on other brands. I had reduced her food to nearly nothing, about 1/4 cup. And she kept getting the squirts. Switched to Dr. Gary’s and she had the squirts cause I didn’t slowly switch her diet, cause that other band was garbage. Gave her pumpkin to get her under control. Now she is in her best shape and so much energy. As if a German Shepard needed more. I’m a big fan as of now.

Must try for sensitive tummy Shepherds

Currently fostering a dog who did not have a good stool from the beginning. The first couple of weeks we chalked it up to intestinal parasites and whatever street food he had been eating, but when it didn’t clear after all of the medications and solid regular diet I did some research. Found a recommendation for this brand from a (GS owner) neighbor and gave it a try. KinnyCarl took to it right away and I didn’t even try to blend it in; I just immediately switched him over. The stool we were dealing with couldn’t have been any worse anyway. Within three days he was normal. I would certainly try it again if I had any dog with a sensitive tummy. Currently on auto delivery as I continue to foster so highly recommend!

Great German Shepherd food

Great food that really helped bulk up my working German Shepherd. After trying tons of different foods, this was the only one that helped bulk him up and keep his muscle. And he loves it!

Best food out there

Best dog food out there for a German Shepard with a finicky tummy. I’ve tried so many different foods and this one is the best. No more stomach problems. He also enjoys the taste. I’ve had to put chicken on his food just to get him to eat. With this food he finished every bite with no special treats.

Greta's Mom

Dr. Gary's Best Breed was recommended in a group I'm a part of for my Belgian Malinois. Breeders to vets to pet parents like me - literally everyone - was raving about it so I had to give it a try for my girl! She's 5 years old now and in absolutely perfect health and, she LOVES the flavor! I love the fact that it's holistic and invented by a vet: a pet doctor who knows exactly what nutrition our furbabies need. Our vet always says, "Whatever you're doing, keep it up!" I've been so impressed that I even switched to Dr. Gary's Best Breed for my three cats and now, one of my sons has started feeding Dr. Gary's Best Breed German blend to his Dachshund who is also thriving. I guess we're a Dr. Gary's Best Breed family of believers!

Do not recommend

Neither one of my German shepherds would eat this food and the one will literally eat just about anything. I was very disappointed since it is so expensive.

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

I first came across Dr. Gary's Best Breed Holistic German Dry Dog Food, while I retaped a Chewy box, while worked at FedEx. What are the odds that I would see this bag of dog food and I have a German Shepard, so I had to get this for him? He's a bite picky at times with dog food, but he loves this food and if I can find a better food for him I will get it!

Best for GSD Stomach

The massive guy in the picture is Stryker (124 lbs). He was re-homed to me when he was 11 months old. Soon after taking him in, I noticed his breath was awful, but knew it wasn't dental, as he was still young. My vet stated it was a probability that he wasn't digesting his food properly, so I started the task of finding him a new food. After quite a few well known brands, I found Dr. Gary's and it gas been amazing! After only a couple of days of the new food, the bad breath is gone! This is now my go to GSD food!!
