This is not grain free is it? I don't want to feed grain free to my German Shepherd or Doberman
Answer by ChewyAug 14, 2019
Although this recipe does not contain Corn, Wheat or Soy, it is not grain-free. For a complete list of ingredients, click the “Nutritional Info” tab, next to the “Description” tab, just under the product photos.

I have a 12 week old Greater Swiss Mountain Dog and Dr. Gary’s was recommended as a good food to give her. I’m just wondering if I should use the puppy food or the Large Breed Dog Food.
Answer by ChewyApr 26, 2019
This formula can be given to puppies as well. For puppies you may feed up to 33% more than suggested adult levels to maintain optimum body weight.

Big Mouth approves.

I switch out my boy’s kibble every 3 months in order to ensure he doesn’t get bored. I use it as a base and add his meat, vegetables, and fruit, plus raw with bone separately. This food has him extremely satisfied, interested, and the ingredients and ratio are great for giant breed dogs (Perro de Presa Canario) at a lower price. I’ve done all the expensive brands and this excels over many.

Consumer Awareness - New formula 2022

The ingredients changed summer of 2022. I started my dog on this brand years ago for the probiotics and holistic factor as I did the research and found the ingredient list to be high quality. Post Covid I understand things have been changing on many levels when the bag weight was decreased from 30lb to 28lb. Unfortunately the bag label also changed and as I finished the old bag happened to notice the kibble was significantly drier and smaller. So I looked at the label and found variances although the bag says nothing about a new formula. Probiotics went from 31million CFU to 10 million. New product added taurine. No iron on new label but ingredient list shows Iron Proteinate (same as original and still 9th ingredient from last; so I can only assume there’s no less than 275 mg), new has no vitamin c, more egg than barley, and a couple other variances. Due to lack of transparency and visual quality variance, I’m personally inclined to doubt quality of manufacturer as it’s clearly not the same. I’m still buying this for my dog but looking around. Im not saying this is horrible food. I purchased intentionally at onset in lieu of adding probiotics to food. 10 bil CFU is standard, so the new food does provide the daily allowance. I’m on the fence why they wouldn’t indicate there’s a change and for not labeling iron as a mineral. The way the ingredients list changed doesn’t seem like a big deal but when I look at quality, I can see noticeable difference as to something I may not give my dog. It looks grey instead of moist, rich and nutritious. For these reasons, I suspect the nutrition label isn’t telling the whole story. Also, you’d probably not notice a new volume weight because the bag doesn’t point out/ advertise *new size but does list it on the bottom. The price is still the same, and effort went into changing packaging so the 2lbs is barely noticed. Chewy CS confirmed the size change moving forward, when I inquired. I guess it’s up to interpretation if these are concerns but wanted to share what info isn’t being shared transparently from the manufacturer and misidentified nutritional content labeling. I usually swap bags and never would’ve known this formula changed had I not saw the kibble was dry. I actually thought it was a bad batch of food but guess this is the new normal for Dr Gary’s. Photos show quality and mind you that the old large kibble recipe was at the bottom of my food container and lost some of the moisture. The fresh out of bag nuggets looked almost wet but you can see what you were getting considering how healthy it still looks, months after opening.

Dogs won't touch

I have 3 dogs and I decided to try this for them because their other food was causing my lab time have diahrea. Well I was so excited for them to try it. Unfortunately all 3 of my dogs won't touch it. My lab will eat anything! He won't touch this food. Guess I need to find a new food for them...suck cause I spent hours reading reviews to try and find the best for them.

Dog Preferred

Swapped from Blue Buffalo and while switching, my dog ate around the Blue Buffalo to eat all of the Best Breed. Quality dog food that my golden doodle loves! We have been using Best Breed for 9 months now.

Cured a lot of our problems.

We have two Dane pups. We had persistently loose stools, skin problems, and issues. This good less to immediate improvements. Both now have firm stools and fewer skin issues. It's been a month, and the improvement is clear. I'm impressed.

Great Danes New Food and Great except...

Love the quality of this food, love that my Great Dane loves it... the packaging is the BEST I've ever seen... all great except the kibble is so small my cats can eat it! This is Giant Breed specific dog food... why cannot the kibble be giant sized too! Ugh... anyone with a large jowled dog, I'm sure would agree this small kibble is a pain... one look to the left... all over the floor... one look to the right... all over the floor!!! Unfortunately, my Dane will not eat off the floor...well that is Fortunate in other aspects, anyway he eats his food from a standing dog feeder and therefore more distance for it to fall from his mouth and more momentum to bounce off his rug onto the hardwood floor which gives it just the right platform to bounce, tumble and roll all over the place! But with all that and it's a big pain, picking it up and it's like stepping on a pebble when you are barefoot and that just hurts but with even that, I continue to buy... because all the good in this dogfood out weighs all that! Its truly the best food that my dog loves that I have ever found. Now my dog isn't really picky. He will eat what I give him at least a little or when he is just really hungry but he gets excited for this food even still now after feeding him it for at least 4-5 months now.

We have a 4 y/o Black Lab, we started her out on Purina One Breed Specific for Labs..as recommended by many breeders of canines. Somewhere along the past year or so, that product no longer exists or is offered. We researched for another dry good we thought would be suitable. With this upcoming order, I searched for anything breed specific and Dr. Gary's came to us by searching 'breed specific' food through the Chewy product search...(we've been Chewy customers for 3 years)! Our Grace loves the new kibble, and it has not disturbed her digestive system. Will be continuing to purchase this product!! Thank you, Thank you Dr. Gatys Best Breed!
