Merrick Backcountry Puppy food.
My dog has always loved this food but the bag I got this time has Zero freeze dried pieces in it. It’s just a bag of the raw coated kibble minus the good parts he loves best. Not Chewy’s fault but dissatisfied with Merrick because I expected to get what I paid for.
Firm Stools! No more upset puppy tummy!
We went thru 5 dog foods till we found this food that finally settled our puppy’s stomach and added bonus, gave our puppy firm stools!
Although I cannot personally verify the taste, our new puppy seems to think it’s delicious, as she eats every bite at each feeding. It is a good size kibble and the addition of raw freeze dried bites makes it visually appealing.
Picky large breed pup approves
My 4.5-month-old large breed pup loves this food. I've tried so many different types of foods (like Orijen) and he just doesn't seem enthusiastic about eating anything but this stuff he actually enjoys. I bought a 4lb bag first as a trial bag and did notice there weren't many freeze-dried pieces in the bag but when I ordered a 10lb bag it has significantly more freeze-dried pieces. My pup has been estimated to be about 90+lbs as an adult (currently 45lbs) and I was worried this food wouldn't be enough to support his growth but about a week into using this food and he's gained about 3 lbs. Overall I am happy with this food and will continue to feed this to Jesper.
My puppy was not a fan
I selected this food because I really like Merrick quality and it is usually well accepted. Also they have come out with a grain inclusive formula which I was happy about. My puppy initially ate this probably because it was a change to what she had been on with the breeder. But then little by little over a few days she started leaving more and more of the kibble behind (I mix with some other things). I bought a different kibble and she likes it much better (and continues to like it). Also I agree that they skimp on the freeze dried nuggets. Won’t be buying this again.
I was very disappointed with this food. There were only a small amount of the freeze dried pieces laying at the top of the bag once they were gone none were in the rest of the bag. Plus my puppy seemed to like it at first but now that the freeze dried pieces are gone he won’t eat it until he’s really hungry as expensive as it is there should be more freeze dried pieces through out the bag.
Merrick Backcountry Raw Infused with healthy grains
I received a bag of Merrick Backcountry Raw Infused Puppy Recipe + Grains complementary for an honest review. I have four dogs and it was difficult to keep my other three dogs away from this puppy food. I finally caved. When I’m feeding the baby I’d give a little to my other three and they loved it just as much as our puppy. Obviously now I’m going to look into getting the three older dogs their own bag. The size of the puppy food is perfect for our little one and she enjoys it. I’ll definitely be buying more of Puppy Recipe + Grains.
My dogs loved this
My dogs loved this raw food. I sprinkled some on top of their usual food and it made them excited to eat. One of my dogs has a sensitive stomach, so his stomach got upset so I would be careful. However my other dog was totally fine and loved the food. If your dog has a pretty normal stomach you should definitely try this out.
It’s ok just not for my puppy
I liked the fact that the pieces were small an easy to chew. The food had a great smell to it. However, my puppy did not like the brown pieces only the white ones. She’s not picky so idk if the brown pieces didn’t taste good or what but she wouldn’t eat them. Puppy is 8 months old an a shepherd/lab mix.
My puppy like it
My puppy is about 7 months old and he’s a hungry boy. He’s a lab, pit, boxer mix and he pretty much eats everything. I gave him the #Merrickbackcountry food and he devoured this. It was no exception. Just like the picture on the bag is how it looks on the inside. I received the chicken and salmon flavor.
