Max likes it

I tried all 3 flavors of this dry food. My spaniel/shepherd mix seems to prefer this one and likes the chicken one least, although he eats them all. They are a medium size kibble, which he seems to prefer. I bought the large size kibble once and he only picked at it. So while he is a large breed, this kibble would work for all but small dogs. I like the simple ingredients. We only supplement with dry food, it is not the majority of his diet. I make some of his food, and use some "I and love and you" canned food. He prefers to not eat and wait to see if he gets any table scraps. LOL

Supply issues = gassy puppy

I've been buying this brand but a different variety for several years. My last two autoship orders they ran out of our usual (supply issues, I get it) so they gave me smaller bags of the right kind at a discount (thank you!) followed by this as a substitution (not great, doesn't agree with my dog's gut.) I was told they'd change it back to our usual after the last substitute but I just got another giant bag of the wrong variety and my dog's stomach is not happy about it (and neither is my nose.)

Changed the price and formula, now my dog hates it

My dog used to love this food. They got a “new look” and the price went from $54.98 for a 26lb bag to $72 for a 22lb bag. They call it reserve now and the kicker is, my dog used to love this food, now she refuses to eat it until she’s so hungry she has to. So disappointed in this brand. I never leave reviews, but to up the price that much, give us less, and create a product a rescue dog who craves food won’t eat is pretty bad.

Price Increase

Love the product, hate the $18 price increase (25%) for a bag that is 4 lbs less than before. Not that it’s Chewy’s fault but it’s a ridiculous increase. I feel as though I’m being strong armed. I have a dog with severe allergies so I don’t have much of a choice which is extremely frustrating.

Semi satisfied

The Duck brown rice was not a great hit because it was not what my pups were used to and it wasn't small breed bites. I want to. Go back to Duck an Potato small dog breed bites

My dogs say no

Yellowish and crumbly doesn't smell like duck, even my foodie says no.

My dog's skin cleared up

I have been searching for years for a cure for my dog's skin allergies. He's allergic to everything, but I knew food was contributing and finally we have some relief from itching and staph infections!

Gave it more stars than it deserved.

If I could give this food a negative amount of stars, I would. I found a piece of treated wood in this dog food and 2 of my dogs are having stomach issues. The piece of wood I found was about 3.5 inches long and 1/2 inch wide, but I have no clue how much was in the food that I did not see. I paid too much money per bag of this food for there to be pieces of wood in it!!!!
