Very small

Our furnace loves this food, but the bags are so small for the price we paid, it should be made in a larger bag.

My pup approves!!

My pup absolutely HATED the last puppy food I had her on. She refused to eat it. I finally switched to royal canin, and she immediately gobbles it up as soon as I set her bowl down. Happy pup and happy dog mom :)

Puppy loves this food

Vet advised me to take my new puppy off the grain free food the breeder had her on. She adopted very quickly to this food and seems to really enjoy it.
