  • My dog loves it

    By on

    After about a week of feeding this food to my dog, it is clear that he likes it. I typically feed him dry kibble in the morning and a mixture of fresh meat/veggies/kibble in the evening. With previous dry foods of different brands, he would wait until the last minute possible to eat. With this food, he is waiting for it and eats immediately. So far, he still is looking very healthy and I think I have found a new dry food for my pup.

  • Charlie loves it!

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    Transitioned slowly, still a bit early... Improved energy, a 65 pound lab mix doing great on 1 cup twice a day, VERY active 3.5 years. He had a great, soft, shiny coat from his previous brand of food, but his energy is definitely better! It's hard finding a quality food that doesn't contain fish... So far, I think I'm very glad we gave this a try!

  • Love Chewy

    By on

    Our local pet store not longer carries this dog food. This is all our lab has eaten since we got him 9 years ago. I found it on Chewy.com. We couldn't be more delighted with our purchase...cheaper than the store, delivered free to our door in just two days. Thanks!

  • My dogs' favorite food

    By on

    This is my dog's regular food. The fact that I could get it shipped directy to the house for free was great for me. I didin't have to haul it off the shelf and then throw it in the cart and repeat at the trunk of the car and then repeat again when I got home. Pricing and free shipping convinced me to purchase this item.

  • Great Healthy Food!

    By on

    Great dog food and works well for my big dog. I am weaning her off her puppy food and mixing in the big dog food and it is working great. Had her on a different food at first then found the plain chicken and rice. No more runny BMS. So glad I found a food that doesn't have a lot of extra things mixed in it.

  • Loved the switch

    By on

    We switched a couple of times and I can say this is a winner for us. Our German shepherds like it very much, and I could see how well it was for them. Their coat shines beautifully on this food and they digest it well. The switch in price is also great. I would recommend.
