About Nulo Frontrunner High-Meat Grain-Inclusive Kibble for Dogs

The Heart of Frontrunner

Canine legends aren’t born, they’re made. While many brands boost their foods’ protein content with pea protein and potato protein, Nulo believes animal-based proteins have the optimal amino acid profile your dog needs to run at the front of the pack. Give your dog nutrition that nourishes the mind, body and soul for years to come with Frontrunner.

Raising the Bar on What’s in Their Bowl

From their careful selection of ingredients—like protein-rich turkey, lamb, salmon, chicken, beef and duck—to low-glycemic carb source choices like lentils, chickpeas, barley, oat, millet and sweet potatoes, Nulo approaches pet food the way they approach everything: no shortcuts allowed.

(Nu)trition + (Lo)ve

Nutrition and love are at the core of everything Nulo does. That is why they only use the finest ingredients to craft their high-meat, low-carb recipes. So go ahead and show your pet some love with the wholesome nutrition of Nulo foods.

Healthier Together

Since day one, Nulo has been committed to inspiring pet parents to live healthier together with their pets. That starts with nutrition—animal-based proteins for muscle, low carbs for a healthy weight, and probiotics for immune support are just a few of the ways each recipe provides your pet with a healthy start at every meal. So whatever the day brings, from a big stretch to endless fetch, your best friend will be ready!

What’s the Secret? Real Food!

The team at Nulo believes that keeping pets healthy is a way of life. That’s why their formulas are full of everything pets need and nothing they don’t. The secret in every Nulo recipe is real food you can feel good about feeding.

What Makes Nulo Different?

Backed by Science

Created by nutritionists, vets and food formulators who know that cats and dogs are carnivores who thrive on meat.

Animal-Based Proteins

Nulo recipes contain leading levels of animal-based proteins and are rich in amino acids.

Low in Carbohydrates

These lower carb recipes more closely mimic the ancestral diet of cats and dogs and help pets maintain a healthy weight.

Functional Probiotics

Probiotics with superior survivability help support digestive health and improve nutrient absorption.

About Nulo

Nulo’s story began with Michael, an all-American athlete, and Max, an English Labrador. Together, they set out on a mission to improve the quality of pet food by incorporating nutrients essential to the health and well-being of pets. Today, Nulo’s recipes help nourish the healthiest and happiest furry family members around, bringing out the best in them—because they bring out the best in us!

Who is the manufacturer
Answer by ChewyFeb 07, 2020
All of Nulo's dry, canned, freeze-dried, dog treat, and bone broth recipes are proudly manufactured right here in the United States (including the Pacfic Northwest, Central West Coast, Mountain Plains, Midwest, and South East regions).

What is the difference between front runner and freestyle?
Answer by ChewyDec 27, 2020
One of the main differences between those 2 foods is Frontrunner is a grain inclusive recipe, while the Freestyle formulas are grain-free.

What is the size and shape of the kibble? I have a 4 pound senior yorkie.
Answer by ChewyJun 29, 2020
The kibble size and shape is smaller than a penny and in a rounded triangle shape.

Max loves this food

I switched to this food because it was lower in starchy vegetables and while dog need some carbs, the foo uses ancient grains instead. (oats, barley). No starchy peas and potatoes.

Good solid product

I recently went back to foods with grain, and this one seems to work with my pup well. The kibble sizes seem a bit large for my fox terrier, but it forces him to slow down and chew when eating, so it works out!

Great Dog Food

I was looking for replacement to Blue Buffalo Wilderness and Merrick due to back orders and supply chain issues. I read many reviews and ended up with Nulo. His coat and energy levels have never been better. It’s a little bit more expensive but worth the quality ingredients needed for a working dog.

Unfortunately it isn't for my dogs

The dog food I usually order was out of stock and also out of stock in other stores I visited. So I tried the Nulo brand. Unfortunately it made both of my dogs sick. I mixed a little in with some of what I usually buy for my dogs. But it didn't agree with my dogs. This is the first time my pets have had anything that disagreed with them. They seemed to like the taste but this food just didn't seem to like them.

Excellent for Dalmatians

It is not easy to find dog food suitable for Dalmatians due to their propensity to form kidney stones. Our current Dal had kidney stones prior to my adoption several years ago. He eats this easily, and it's easy to transfer these size kibbles to his storage bin. My guess is he would like some of the other Nulo Frontrunner Ancient Grains offerings, too, but we are sticking with this for now.

This is the best stuff

I cannot recommend this kibble enough! It is so high-quality and includes oats, barley, and brown rice together with the meats. Dogs need grains and so it’s hard to find good quality kibble these days because so many brands focus on grain-free. Once you open the bag, you already know it’s chicken-and-turkey-heavy because it smells great! Very aromatic, unlike our previous brand which smelled like stale crackers. What’s even more of a testimony is that our cat, who is super-picky and has excellent taste, tries to steal this kibble from our dog. She loves this stuff! Meanwhile, our dog, who usually goes for his wet food first at mealtime, actually goes for his kibble first now that we’ve switched him to this Nulo kibble! Believe it or not, I swear this is Truth! And very shocking. Cannot recommend more highly. Please never discontinue this fine product!

Finally! My girl loves this!

We had been giving our girl the grain free Nulo but realized we needed to switch to food with some grain in it. Thank goodness Nulo makes this line, she is so picky and the other foods with grain that we tried giving her were a no go. The first day we began mixing this in with her old food she devoured it! She is happy and so are we knowing that she’s getting what she needs.

Great food products for your fur babies.

This is the best food for your animals, I buy the cat and dog products and both my fur babies are senior and need all the best parts of the food that helps them.

Excellent kibbles

Our border collie Tucker just got a glowing yearly check-up at the vet's. His bloodwork results were spot-on. Before I switched to Nulo Frontrunner, Tucker had loose stools about once a week. Now, with Frontrunner we very, very, very rarely have that problem (I'm knocking on wood right now). And another benefit is that Tucker likes it mixed with his homemade "stews."

My picky dog LOVES Nulo

I have tried so many different brands of dog food and it is so hard to find any with quality ingredients at a reasonable cost - also it's hard to find any without peas or legumes :/. The first day eating this and my picky boy loved it! Now, it's not such a hassle at mealtimes and he's happy, healthy, and his coat looks amazing. I will keep buying this for a long time!
