    I really love Merrick Backcountry, it's the only food my boy will eat. I've tried many brands including wellness, 2 different flavors of taste of the wild, Acana, and nutro natural choice and he turned his nose up Everytime. It wasn't until I was talking to my manager about picky Shepherd and that's when she recommended Merrick and I haven't had a problem since. I started him on the game bird recipe and he LOVED IT! I just recently put him on the big game recipe and he still loves it, tho I noticed there is not as many raw pieces as the other flavor, which sucks cause my boy loves them!

    I had been very hesitant about ordering from chewy in the pass. I am glad I gave them a chance. Ordering was super easy and shipping turnaround was out of this world. I placed my order on a weekday around 5 p.m., the Fedex man was ringing my door be the next day around noon! My dogs love the Merrick Backcountry Raw infused so much, its always a growling stand down at each other to get the raw infused pieces.

  • My dog: "Best food EVER!"

    By on

    I feed my collie half raw and half kibble. The best he's acted about kibble, since early puppyhood bottomless-pit hunger, has been "oh, this isn't too bad, I guess, and I'm hungry so I'll eat it". Some were "nah, I don't think so", with maybe a little more enthusiasm for the first day or two after it's opened. I tried several quite good (4 and 5 star) kibbles; Fromm was the best accepted of that lot. Enter BackCountry and it's "ZOMG I LOVE IT--I wants MOAR!" He acts like a lab at dinner time. LOL Transition was easy, no GI problems or changes in elimination. Obviously I haven't fed it long enough yet to see any change in condition. My hope is that it may help alleviate his lifelong itchiness I feed my collie half raw and half kibble.

  • Yummy for my labs tummy

    By on

    My 19 month old black lab absolutely loves this food. He is an indoor dog and not too active so this will not be a regular rotation in his diet. The smell is not too bad, he kibbles are small which made it easy for him to gobble down the kibble quickly. 4 stars because the protein levels were too high for my non hunting dog.

  • Amazing! Her ears quit smelling!

    By on

    Our dog has suffered from smelly ears for over three years. I made an appointment to get her sedated and her ears flushed but then decided as a last ditch effort, to try switching her dog food This change in dog food in combination with the Zymox otic enzymatic solution immediately began to work! I highly recommend these products.

  • My Shiba Inu LOVES this stuff!

    By on

    Just switched our VERY picky 6 year old Shiba Inu (Riyku aka Diva Prince) over to this brand and he LOVES it! He always picks out the pieces of freeze-dried meat first then will finish the rest immediately after. Our pup normally eats pretty late and we've been trying to get him to eat earlier and have never succeeded until now! Miracles do happen! I was also impressed with the ratio of kibbles to freeze-dried meat chunks. Will definitely continue to order this brand (I actually ordered 4 different flavors of the 4 lbs bags since our Shiba gets bored.)

  • Corgi caviar

    By on

    We have 2 Corgis, one of which is diabetic. We have searched high and low for a food he will eat that isn't too hard on his sugar levels. Backcountry Raw is something they both enjoy and it hasn't caused any issues with his sugar levels. This means less insulin and fewer trips to the vet...YAY!! Both of them seem to enjoy their meals and it doesn't seem to take as much food each day to satisfy them. Overall, we are very pleased with Merrick's Backcountry Raw for both our pets!!

  • Pretty good food, dogs weren't a fan

    By on

    I have 4 dogs, so it's hard to find a food they will all eat and not have any reactions. They didn't like this particular flavor of food, but they all loved the Hero's Banquet of this brand. I will not buy this flavor again, but not because it's a bad food!

  • My Babies and Backcountry

    By on

    My Boxer loves this food and eats it directly out of the bag when no one is around. Because I usually mix it with Nutros Senior Food. I am sure that I will have to order another bag to use all the Senior food. My two other dogs like it also, they just haven't found the bag!!

  • The best food

    By on

    Merrick backcountry is the best food. My dogs finally are eating and not giving me a hard time about eating. I have 5 dogs and I use to have to feed different foods to each one because one liked this but the other didn't. Now I have all 5 on the same. Thank God for Merrick!
