Good ingredients is what you'll find at the heart of our Playful Life recipe. We take our #1 ingredient, real farm-raised beef, and blend it to perfection with whole grains and accents of vegetables. It’s 100% nutrition, a taste your adult dog will love, plus the protein his active muscles need.

Feeding Guidelines: 

Recommend Daily Feeding Amounts: Using a standard 8 oz (250 ml) measuring cup

Feeding Adult Dogs: The recommended feeding amounts are based on using a standard 8 oz/250 ml measuring cup which contains approximately 97 g of Purina Beneful Playful Life.  Most adult dogs can be fed once daily.  However, when high activity or other factors create a higher feed intake, twice-a-day feeding is recommended.  Dogs should be maintained in ideal body condition and not be allowed to become overweight.  The food intake required to maintain ideal body condition will vary, depending on age, activity and environment.  Consequently, the amount of food required for each dog will vary and should be adjusted accordingly.

Available sizes: 15.5 lb bag

Feeding Tip:

  • When switching your dog to Beneful Playful Life dog food, please allow 7 - 10 days for the transition.  Gradually add more Beneful Playful Life and less of the previous food to your dog’s dish each day until the changeover is complete.  This gradual transition will help avoid dietary upsets.
  • Provide adequate fresh water in a clean container daily.

  • For your pet's health, see your veterinarian regularly.

My pup loves this dog food variety but it is impossible to find. I got it at target once when I first adopted my pepper and he could not get enough but couldn’t find it anywhere after that. I think it’s because this really is a fantastic dog food for a fantastic price.

I have a picky eater dog. He will starve himself if there is a food he doesn’t like. This dog food is one of the only foods he likes. One day I purchased a brand new bag and there was maggots. Not just a few. I’m completely disgusted and will never purchase again.

This is my go to food for most of the dogs. It is great in price and at first the dogs loved it but even trying different flavors they got bored. I did mix their dry food with their wet food and the dogs loved it better but still got bored after a while.

My two dogs love this brand of food, and don’t have any issues switching between flavors depending on what my Wal-mart has available at the time of purchase. I have not had any negative side effects ( vomiting, itchy skin, diarrhea) with them from this food, and it’s at a great price point!

My dogs LOVE this. They are picky with their meat flavors and will only eat beef or salmon lol they do not like chicken flavored dog foods and will only eat chicken breasts if I cook them for them. This is a great buy for picky pups.

We love this dog food for our dogs. It’s made from great ingredients and it feeds out small and large puppies. It’s a great price for the buy as well. Our dogs seem to like it a lot and I would definitely recommend it!

Better and more natural for my fur babies. Used a different kind until we moved and was forced to find something else. Wanted something that listed actual meat as an ingredient and this did. Dogs have ate better and have had more energy since starting it.

Its good cheap dog foos. My dog enjoys the small pieces and flavor. He doesnt binge it but he enjoys it enough to stay nourished and full. It is a littlw high in wheat content so if your dog has sensitivities you may want to stay away.

My dog loooooves beneful! And I live it too because I see him enjoying it so much while my pocket doesn’t go bankrupt because it’s so affordable. He eats like a happy child and I save like a happy mom. What would be better than that?! I recommend this for your dogs!

My dog loves this brand and type. He’s a very picky eater so I was kinda surprised when I just bought this one day and he loved it! The only downside is it’s kinda spendy for me at least. I would highly recommend this dog food
