    Everyone comes running!

    By Loveaemily on Mar 16, 2021

    I use this food to fill treat dispensing balls for my dogs or as a topper. This food has a strong fish odor and when I open the bag both dogs and the cat come running. I appreciate that this comes in a grain inclusive recipe. I purchased the 10 lb bag and there are lots of raw chunks in the bag.

    Picky Samoyed

    By Kadie on Jan 23, 2021

    I have a super picky Samoyed that seems to enjoy this. She really likes the raw in it. She will pick all of those out of the bowl first before she eats the kibble but most importantly I noticed she is not itching as much. I had seen Merrick's food before but most of what I thought she would eat was grain free and our vet does not support a fully grain free diet for her so when I saw this....raw infused with healthier grains I talked to the vet and she agreed to make the switch from another brand she was on. She is still picky but seems a little less picky with this.

    Dog likes it but my nose doesn’t

    By TuckerMom on Dec 19, 2020

    I received a small bag free for my dog to sample. I noticed right away that my dog was very interested in this new food from the moment I opened the bag. He went nuts and every time I gave it to him he went nuts! So that’s a good sign off the bat. The problem came the hours following meal time. He had the worse smelling gas after eating this food. That alone is reason for me not to buy this again for him. It seems like a good product and my dog still loved it but my nose did not. It could very well just be my dog though. The only other complaint I had was with resealing the bag or lack there of. Once you cut it open there’s no reseal so you pretty much have to put it into another container to I received a small bag free for my dog to sample.

    Great ingredients. Happy dog.

    By Erin on Dec 23, 2020

    I received a 5lb bag of this food to test. While I wouldn’t call our lab a picky eater, it is easy to tell when he likes or prefers something, and he gets very excited over this food. I also love that there are freeze dried pieces of real salmon (as does he - he often picks those out first). In terms of ingredients we are very satisfied as we try to feed him clean, well sourced ingredients and food with limited additives and fillers. His digestion has been good since incorporating this food into his diet and his coat is extremely shiny.

    Great option for your furry friend

    By XxtaytayxX on Dec 9, 2020

    I recieved a 5lb bag of this dog food for free to test out with my furry friend. I will say, I really do like this product. I love that its a combo dry food with freeze dried pieces. I feel comfortable feeding this to my American bulldog because of the high quality ingredients. I will say, my dog was skeptical at first (it could be the strong smell it has, I think cause of the freeze dried pieces). However, all I had to do was slowly mix it with his other one for a few days before completely switching. Once I did that, he really enjoyed it and would eat all of the food. I definitely noticed a positive effect it had on my dogs mood.

He's 10yrs old so he doesnt play often, so it was great to see this food giving him more energy to play. I'd definitely say it's worth trying with your dog. … more

    By Dogfood on Feb 12, 2021

    My allergic to many many things staffy, loves this food! It also doesn't make her stomach upset at all. Her fur is looking wonderful and she actually eats it. I think we've tried about 25 different foods. She's very picky.

    Chomped it Right Down!

    By RobinH on Dec 5, 2020

    I received a small bag of this product free to review. My two Great Danes usually eat another brand of food with chicken and rice so this was a completely new flavor for them. My younger Dane absolutely couldn't get enough of this food. She ate all of hers and then ate the rest of my older Dane's food too! My older Dane ate all the raw freeze dried pieces first, then ate most of the kibble. I don't think she was sure what to think of the flavor. She's a bit picky. I was expecting a very fishy smell when I opened the bag, but was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't overly pungent. I love that the first 3 ingredients are meats (Salmon, salmon meal, whitefish meal). Trout is a little further down I received a small bag of this product free to review.

This food also contains apples and blueberries. The kibble was a a nice smaller size that makes it easy for the dogs to eat and me to vacuum up if they were to spill any. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was for the price. Its a little more than I'd like to spend since 2 Great Danes eat quite a bit compared to an average sized dog. … more

    Interesting Dog Food

    By Makayla on Dec 10, 2020

    I received a small bag of this dog food to review. My dogs absolutely adored this food. It incorporates dried raw food into it as well that makes this food stand out in the market. The only downside I have to this food was the strong smell. It has such a strong fish smell that every time I opened my air tight container it was overwhelming. That would be the only downside to this food.

    Interesting Raw Food Product

    By MrsMichelle on Nov 18, 2020

    I began feeding my dog more raw products when she began having medical issues. After doing somextesearch on dog food in general, it seemed like raw might be beneficial. I'm not sure that it has helped too much, but I feel better giving it to her compared to some brand names that have absolutely no benefits other than filling her belly. I'm also a firm believer in the benefits of glucosamine for dogs, so that is a huge plus also. She goes crazy for salmon, so she ate this like it was the best thing ever. I'll definitely be buying this again.

    Dog loved it

    By Harts on Nov 15, 2020

    We received a FREE bag as a sample to try out for our labradoodle! Our dog loved this food, but it did give him horrible skunk fish smelling farts that didn't go well with him being an inside dog. Loved the packaging design, but wish the bag was resealable in some way since it's a smaller bag. It did give off a strong fish odor, which again, wasn't great for our small house. Our dog did enjoy eating the kibbles!
