Changed all my dogs to this

Got turned on to this food at a booth at a fair in Boulder, CO, where they handed out samples. My 3 dachshunds love it! Then I got a cattle dog and thought she needed a different food, but she had all these BM problems with other foods that made me think she had chronic colitis. Switched her to the doxies food and hasn’t had a bad BM since. Their coats are also SUPER healthy! Could not recommend enough.

LOVE it so much!

We have 3 dogs between our families that are all enjoying this food. All three are bird dogs: two Vizslas and one German Short-haired Pointer. One is so picky that before we were buying entire chickens to add to his food through the week. With this food, he eats it with a couple of table spoons of water leaving it a tad crunchy. He finishes his bowl every time!

My puppy loves!

I changed brands because somehow I did not see it on here, now I find it!! After buying a lot of other kibble….and my puppy just does not gobble down her new food like this brand. Will buy again. Kibble bits are good size, so good for treat training.

Jack Russell didn’t like

So I have bought other flavors of this brand and my 3 year old Jack Russell loved it and also I noticed better poops. However he doesn’t like this flavor will not eat it!

Lots of crumbs

Bought this for her birthday for something special to eat. Don't know is it was bottom of barrel or what packaging looked fine but 1/3 of it was dust at bottom of bag. Called the company not Chewy and they wouldn't stand behind it told me to call chewy. I didn't think it was chewys fault. Was packaged fine wasn't crushed or damaged. So I won't by that brand again

Good quality, reasonable price

For the price, this is a great quality food. My Spanish greyhound has much healthier poops and digestion. Less flatulence and less stinky. Softer coat. And he looooves the taste.

the only food that doesn’t hurt my dogs tummy

It has taken years to find a dog food that doesn’t hurt my dogs stomach. He absolutely loves this food and so does his system! No more tummy aches, inconsistent poops, or vomiting. We won’t buy anything else! Plus we can recycle the bag and it last for a good amount of time. 10/10 would recommend

Our dog loves this brand of dog food. The added probiotics keep her gut happy. Grain free means less itching for her!

10yr Old Toy Poodle

Thank god for this food!!! Mt toy poodle is a VERY VERY picky eater and since she's gotten older her digestive system has become much more sensitive. This is the only kibble I've found that does not upset her stomach, and she loves it! I don't even have to top her food with anything. This also cured her terrible flatulence in about a week of her only eating this! I highly recommend this kibble, it's amazing! The size of the kibbe is perfect for small dogs.

You can recycle these bags!

In addition this food being grain free and having decent ingredients, I choose it because the company has partnered with Terracycle to allow you to recycle their bags for free. Just go to terracycle.com and you can print a free mailing label to ship bags to them for recycling. These bags would last like 1,000 years in a landfill, so this is very important to me. :-)
