Great product!

Our boxer absolutely loves Merrick Backcountry Freeze-Dried Raw - with turkey, duck and quail. He looks forward to meal time and devours every morsel!! We started with this protein mix and will be rotating with their other varieties of mixed proteins.

My dogs new favorite

We tried this on accident because our normal dog food which was the Merrick Backcountry Hero was out of stock. My dog absolutely loves this! She eats her entire serving all at once every time. She used to be a pretty finicky eater but would always eat her bowl full just in her own time. Definitely will be choosing this one again.

Awesome Dog Food

This is by far the best dog food we have found for our Lab. He loves it, and looks great.

A FIne Meal

Lola really likes the food but the kibbles are a bit large for her. But I think that was my fault for not making sure a small dog would be able to eat it. She does though.

great dog food

my dogs absolutely love this food, as soon as they hear the bag being opened they start dancing around and can't wait to get at it, my wife and I have tried many different brands of food for our dogs but they absolutely love this food and if you read the ingredients it doesn't read like a novel, very limited ingredients.

Good.....but....

Hank is getting to where he eats it okay. He loves the puffy things in all of these foods. However, he really liked his first one best. They discontinued it, switched to another. They discontinued it! Hopefully, this one stays. But, he really, really liked the one with the venison and other meats.

Merrick's new Game Bird Recipe kicks it out of the park!

My small dog is a very picky eater. Up until now, her favorite food has been Merrick's Duck recipe, which she really likes. She will also eat the Bison formula, after waiting to see if something better is coming. Now, this Game Bird formula has her soooo excited to eat. It's brand new to us, and I've never seen her so excited about a dry food before. I think she thought it was a bowl of treats! Chewy is the best, too. SUCH fast delivery and amazing customer service. 5 stars!!
