Feeding Instructions

Using the chart on the back of the package, divide the total cups per day by the total number of times you feed your dog per day to determine the portion size for each meal. Keep a clean bowl of fresh water available at all times. Every dog is a little different, so optimal feeding amounts may vary with age, size and activity level. Please use the information below as an initial recommendation only and adjust when needed. Dry and wet food in combination will help to increase the level of water in your dog's diet. If feeding with wet food, reduce dry amount by 1/2 cup for every 6 oz. of wet food.

    Small pieces

    By Allie on May 27, 2021

    Our dog was excited to try this. She was digging in the box when I opened it. The little demon knew it was for her, so I was a little worried that it was going to have a pungent smell. When we opened the actual bag though, it really did not have much of a smell at all. I gave her a handful to try and her more or less inhaled it. The kibble pieces are small, so this would also be good for a smaller pup. (Ours is a 70 lb super active black lab/german shepherd mix.) This food did make her eat a lot faster than we like her to (she eats and drinks so fast sometimes she makes herself puke) so we broke her feedings into 4 times a day +treats instead of 2 times per day + treats.

We usually feed her grain free because she gets a weird tummy sometimes with some foods, this has not seemed to cause any digestions issues though, and she is really enjoying it. We are going to keep this in her diet mixed with her other grain free food. She eats 5+ cups a day due to being active. (5 mile runs 3-4 times a week - plus hiking on the weekend (15.7 mile trail behind our cabin) and she self throws her ball up and down the stairs enough that she has made a wear path in the wood that was installed a month ago). Her vet reccommended her to continute having some grain in her diet since it is better for their hearts, and we hadn't fou d one we could add in that was working. This one seems to have done the trick though. … more

    An amazingly healthy alternative

    By BrianDaniels on May 21, 2021

    First and foremost I did receive this product for free as part of a group that receives samples. I have a 14 year old Chihuahua and since we have a senior dog we always try to make sure that she is eating a very healthy diet. We used to feed her Rachel Ray but once we gave her some of the provided Merrick Healthy Grains real chicken and brown rice she immediately took to enjoying the food so much so that she wanted even more. The texture isn't one that is too incredibly hard and the smell is one that is rather pleasing and one that will definitely attract your dog. I definitely recommend this product to those looking for a far more healthier choice especially if you are like myself and have First and foremost I did receive this product for free as part of a group that receives samples.

    It’s dog approved!

    By DanielleTW14 on Jun 12, 2021

    My dog absolutely loves this food! I tried using it just as a treat that I add to his regular dog food, but he loves it so much that it’s all he wants to eat and he picks it out of the bowl. So it’s definitely a winner to him and it’s a food I can feel good about feeding him. The only thing I dislike is that the pieces are so small and there’s not a larger size option for large breeds (my dog is 65 lbs).

    Simply amazing

    By Mandy on May 31, 2021

    I received this product for free for testing purposes and was so glad that I did. When I first opened it the smell of the food smelt like something was being cooked in our kitchen. It smelt like fresh food. My cat not only enjoyed the taste of the food but she also enjoyed the size of the pieces of food were just right. Overall I would recommend this product as it is a healthy alternative, has a great smell to it, the pieces were just right in size for my cat, & she loves the taste/flavor!

    What a difference!

    By Trista on May 21, 2021

    I received a free sample to try as part of a product promotion. I tried this with my 54 lb. rescue walker coonhound and he loved it! I mixed in a little with his previous dog food for first feeding and more each feeding until it was just this dog food. He literally picked this dog food out of his bowl and ate it and left his old dog food in the bowl. Lol. When I opened the bag there wasn't a funky or foul order. I love the ingredients. I have made the switch and highly recommend any dog owner to give this a try. I've already notice a difference in his skin and coat.

    Took some time but loving it now

    By Isabella on May 15, 2021

    When I first offered my pooch a few bits of this dog food she sniffed it and didn’t take. She wasn’t enticed to have some. After a few shakes and convincing on my end my dog finally gave it a try and ended up liking it. She came back for more and when I offered her from the bag she gladly took. I expected it to be a little softer or denser but it’s like a normal small solid kibble. The smell is not crazy and smells pretty standard for dog food. The quantity is a decent amount and I think it’s reasonable. I will continue transitioning my dog into this food and see how she does in the long run. It has decent ingredients and is free from main allergens.

    My doggies loved it!

    By DogMomInTX on May 27, 2021

    I received a free bag of this product to sample and submit an honest review. I have 2 Schih Tzu's, 8 and 12 years old, and they currently eat Open Farm and Activa dry dog food. They are quite picky and won't just eat new food. Sometimes it takes days to get them to eat something new. Well, I was expecting the same reaction from them with this brand but they went right for it and ate everything in their bowls! I will definitely keep buying this for them.

    Dog seems to really enjoy

    By StellaBear on May 29, 2021

    I got this product for free to try & see how my dog likes it. My 14 year old Maltese really enjoys this kibble. We do not change his food often so it took a day for him to try it out but by the next day he seemed to prefer this over his usual kibble. Nice small pieces easy to chew for small breed dog missing a couple teeth. Love this kibble will continue to feed him this mixed w his normal food.

    He ate it ...

    By Lynn on May 20, 2021

    We received a bag of this free for reviewing purposes and I have to say I was skeptical. He sniffed the bag ,looked at me and walked away. I put some in his bowl for breakfast and he did eat half of it. The rest he ate that evening. I'm wondering if due to the highest quality ingredients it was more filling than our regular brand. He did finish the whole bag which lasted two days so well have to get some more and see what happens.

    My boy Gizmo loves this!

    By Gizmo on Jun 1, 2021

    My sweet miniature poodle (Gizmo, 21 lbs) loves this! I put it in his bowl and he ate it up in seconds. He prefers this over his other dry food. Gizmo has a sensitive stomach, so I was worried to try something new. He loved it and it did not bother him at all! The only downside is many of the items on the ingredients list are questionable.
