    Great food

    By Steph on Jan 12, 2022

    We love this food for our pup until we can transition him to a homemade raw diet when he's old enough. He has been very healthy and full of energy with this food.

    I have always had dogs in my life and have never considered ordering pet supplies online. I recently adopted a puppy and found I did not have the time to go to the pet supply store in my area. I went online to and also arranged to have the puppy food put on auto re-order. the puppy loves it.

    Not too sure

    By RhettsMomma on May 29, 2021

    I bought this because of the reviews and wanting to feed my boy a raw diet. I don’t think he likes it. Ever since switching him to this he won’t really eat it unless I hand him it. He has also been feeling really warm. He hasn’t lost energy so I don’t think he is sick. All the changes happened which I put him on this good. Maybe it’s just not for him. He does like the freeze dried chicken pieces though.

    LOVE this for our dog!

    By GoldendoodleMom on Aug 7, 2021

    Our dog loves this food, I was a little concerned he would only eat the raw bits but he isn't very picky about food so it wasn't a problem for us!

    Picky puppy loves it!

    By Sarah on Apr 7, 2021

    My 10 pound grand puppy mix would turn his nose up at everything except freeze dried dog food. Meal time was painful getting the right mix of hard and freeze dried to entice him to eat. I love that this brand has them mixed already. I admit I bought the large bag and added two more bags of freeze dried to get just the right balance for him and now he eats it all without any fuss. He doesn’t have trouble with grains so I like that this includes them for a well balanced diet. My older dog takes this over his own food every time, they both love it.

    Good overall

    By Stacey on Mar 27, 2021

    I switched to this brand after my dog seemed to lose all interest in her previous brand of food. While she seems to like this one alright, I won’t lie, I wish there were not freeze dried pieces in it. She loves them more than the actual food. She picks all of the pieces out (of course making a mess) and then stops eating and doesn’t eat all day until she realizes mom isn’t going to give her more just so she can only eat the freeze dried pieces. Because if this she has only been eating about half of what she normally does in a day. Overall, I would say this is a good choice, but just be aware that your dog might prefer the handful of freeze dried pieces over the actual food.

    High quality puppy kibble

    By Steph on Feb 12, 2021

    Eventually, we plan to cook food for our pup, but we wanted to make sure she’s getting all the nutrients she needs while she’s growing so quickly. A vet recommended a few brands, including this one, and we feel really good about the ingredients in it. Plus, our pup loves it!
