I tried a few different brands of dog food for my poodle puppy and after reading reviews decided to try blue buffalo. So glad I did! This doesn’t upset his sensitive stomach and he gets so excited to eat this he acts like it’s a treat! I’ll never feed him anything other than blue buffalo!

We used Blue Buffalo for the first couple months after getting our new puppy. She quickly became bored of the flavor. We tried mixing in some of the wet food, but she still was not interested in it. We do have another family pet who loves it, so I guess it depends how picky your pup is!!

I have used Blue Buffalo for my dog since he was four years old. He passed in December 2018. He was 11 years old. Blue Buffalo was extremely satisfying for him. He loved it and it was good for him. I would highly recommend for other pet owners.

The Blue Buffalo es una excelente comida para perros. Tiene comida para diferentes edades de perros. Como por ejemplo desde lo mas poppy hasta para los adultos. A mi perrita le encanta y no se come otra comida si no es esta.

This food is the worst, it made my poor puppy so sick and lethargic. It's over priced especially since it made him so sick. I ended up getting rid of this food, dont buy totally not worth seeing your poor puppy sick.

We adopted this baby, Lyla, in August of 2017. Our other dog Sophie, needed a friend. After all the negative feedback about supermarket brands such as Purina, Beneful, etc, we decided to go with Blue Buffalo for her as well as our first rescue. She absolutely loves it! This brand may he expensive compared to the ones listed above but well worth it for the her well being. Well worth the purchase!

He loves this. We switched it because he was having a sensitive stomach to the other dog food. As soon as we switched his coat got shinier he was able to hold down food his poops became more solid and less frequent. He had more energy and actually ate less to! I guess because it’s better food it’s keeping him fuller longer? A little pricey when I buy the big bags but it’s worth it I think.

I love all of the blue buffalo product and my dogs do as well , just realized I clicked puppies , but I have the adult version of the life protection formula. So whatever , same thing , my dogs are just old. Haha. Either way ... great product. I’d dock a star for the price because this brands so expensive .. but I’m not going too because I like it.

I have a foster dog that is a chocolate lab who is very active. The previous foster parents had them on this so this is what we decided to keep him on. I feel that this is a good dog food but I do not believe that it is worth the money and I will be slowly switching him over to Purina puppy chow.

Our goldendoodle loves this, we only want to feed her the best and that’s exactly what this is. She loves dinner time, we used to have to give her chicken in her old food because she didn’t like it, now she can’t get enough of this (without the chicken). It is pricey, but that’s what you get for quality food.
