Not the greatest. Dogs won’t eat it.

My dogs seemed to like the first serving but since the bag doesn’t reseal I think it becomes stale very quickly because they wouldn’t touch it behind the first serving. I buy the canned version and they love it but the dry … not so much. Waste of money. I have a bag of food that none of them will eat. Won’t buy again.

Cannot re-seal

The food itself seems good, though our dog doesn't run for it. Difficult to tell how it's affecting him (good or bad), but he's young and healthy. Only gripe is lack of ability to re-seal the bag after opening.

it’s a hard NO

My boys have been eating another brand of kibble for a year now but it’s constantly out of stock. So I migrated to this brand based on the reviews. I’ve tried to gradually add this dry kibble in along with same brand canned food to the regular food and they won’t eat either. I tried giving some to my neighbors dog and he wouldn’t eat it. Makes me think something is wrong with this bag.

Pricey but worth it

After trying 3 other kinds of dry food, we landed on this one for my 1.5 yr old Aussie girl. The others either gave her diarrhea or she would just refuse to eat them. She really loves this food and almost never has an upset stomach. The food is expensive, but for us it is worth it if our girl is happy and healthy!

So far so good

My dog seems to like this and her coat looks shiny and good. I've looked at several affordable brands and just decided I'd give this one a try. Dog Food Advisor doesn't rate this one the best however they do rate as good. I only have one dog so the 12#-15# bag is perfect size. I was feeding her Logic but it just got too expensive. I also worry about the grain free vs grain food research so went with this one for the good grains.

Very Good Ingredients

First choice for this purchase is no corn, no soy, no wheat and no peas. Second choice is both the food obsessed and the non-food obsessed dog like this food. Both dogs are thriving and full of energy OK maybe that full of energy is not a plus :-) This dog food is on autoship, no need to think of changing foods anytime soon.

My Goldens love it!

I've used this food for many years for my 4 golden retrievers. Their coats are shiny, it has kept them at a good weight, and they love it!

Great Quality Dog Food

This is a great dog food with excellent ingredients. Both my Corgis have beautiful glossy coats. I only gave 4 stars because the previous bags I ordered were past Best Buy mark of august 2020 so really watch your dates on your dog food. Chewy was amazing and replaced the bags in two days.
