Our Doberman mix puppy loves this beef and sweet potato kibble. We had another kibble on hand when we got her and she didn't touch it. Her foster mom had been feeding her the Merrick's and I'm thrilled that she lives to eat it. I don't mind the price given the quality ingredients and because she enjoys it.
Usually, this food is great! I've had my puppy on this food since I got her at 8 weeks old. It always did well, her coat has been shiny and she's been healthy. Lately, I've bought the past 5 or 6 bags of food from pet stores and here and it has been BURNT. There's usually a sweet aroma from it, like puppy food, and it smells like burnt cardboard. Merrick needs to get this under control. This isn't a cheap brand of food, either. I shouldn't have to worry whether it's going to be burnt or not when I open the bag. I'm tired of playing the guessing game, and will be getting a different food from now on. Usually I love Merrick, but this has been a constant disappointment. Hopefully I can send this food back and get a refund.
Discovered this food after being unable to obtain a special weaning formula from another company. Found I could wean my puppies without digestive problems. And I did not have to jump through hoops to get it.
I accidentally got the puppy one but my dog is 5 years old. What I do to feed my dog is mix in dry food with food I make at home. When I first mixed it in my dog was a little skeptical since it looked different but he quickly ate it after tasting it. He loved it! I love that the ingredients are all natural cause that's what I worry the most about for my dog. Also no negative reactions to the food which is a great plus!
My puppy went absolutely bonkers when I introduced her to this delightful treat. I’ve never seen her react to any food this way and I feel I’m definitely going to keep this as a main food item. Replaced is my previous puppy food lol and up on the shelf there will only be one.
I received this for an honest review. My dog really loved this. I have been feeding him the same food for almost a year and you can tell her was getting tired of it because as soon as I gave him the full bowl he was too excited. I love the natural ingredients and the health benefits that Merrick provides. I will definitely be buying it.
The ingredients listed are great and my dogs enjoyed the food, but unfortunately it's a bit too brittle of a dog food for me. Both of my dogs eat at least a meal out of a wobbler style slow feeder and this food left crumbs everywhere. If they were just bowl dogs it does great, but I wouldn't recommend for those who use non bowl style slow feeders
Merrick's food has exactly what a dog should have for a healthy balanced diet. It doesn't have grain, soy, preservatives or any by-products in it. I've been giving it to my puppy for 10 months & when I change his diet to adult food I'm still staying with Merrick. Recommend it very highly!
My dog did not like this food. It was something that he would only eat mixed in with his current food. It did have really good ingredients, I just think my dog was not used to the flavor
First off, this packaging is fire. Had I been cruising the store trying to figure out what to try with my puppy, it certainly would have caught my eye. The kibble itself is rich looking in color (not dull or bland in appearance), the perfect size for a puppy, and it must smell great as our pup came running right over to it! So far, no issues!
