Product Reviews

Large Breed Adult Recipe is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 1084.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Healthy, Happy Dog When we got Ernie from the pet store, this is the brand of dog food (Nutro Max Puppy) they were feeding him, I had never owned a dog before so I knew nothing about dog food, so we just stuck with what was going on and transitioned him onto large breed adult. I have to say once looking into it we couldn't have made a better choice for Ernie, he has a soft fluffy coat, has a huge amount of energy and our vet says he is the perfect weight even though he probably eats more than he should, its all thanks to a healthy diet of Nutro and loads of exercise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good for sensitive tummies I would recommend this dog food for dogs that have sensitive stomaches. I tried switching him to a brand that was a couple of dollar cheaper to save money but I then realized he wasn't keeping the food down. I noticed that. he lost a lot of weight and wasn't playful. Nutro keeps his hair looking nice, active and keeps him looking healthy. Please give this brand a try you won't regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Puppy Power! My big girls think Nutro is great for their tummy! After having an embarrassing little problem (gassy!)...we made the switch from a grocery store brand to Nutro & it was an instant difference for them! Even better... the cost for the "good stuff", Nutro, was no more than what we were paying at our local grocery store for the "okay stuff".They love to see those big, tasty chunks in their bowls. Lots of tail waggin'!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a difference!!!! We were trying to save a little money and we had all of our dogs on what we thought was a decent dog food. We finally decided we were going to spend the extra money and try a different food because we just weren't happy with what we were using. We started two of our bullmastiff adults on it and within 3 days we were ready to switch every dog we have to it. The difference in the amount of waste was noticeable in 24 hours! With several bullmastiff's and bulldog's to clean up after the change in food cut down our clean up time tremendously. Not only that but all of our dogs love it, they don't shed nearly as much as before and they don't eat nearly as much as they used to eat of the previous food. So glad we tried it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'll never feed my dogs anything else again! I've been feeding my two dogs (a Doberman and a German Short-Hair) Nutro Max Large Breed Adult for years now, and they love it. About a year ago, I thought I'd try to save some money by switching to another brand - what a mistake! Their coats lost their shine, and they ate almost twice as much to get the same nutrition. I chalked it up to a lesson learned and switched them right back to the Nutro. I don't mind paying a few dollars extra to watch them enthusiastically gobble it up every day and know that they are getting everything they need from their Nutro Max, including glucosamine and chondroitin, which are important for bone and joint health. Thanks for this quality product, Nutro Company!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dogs love it... I have been feeding my dogs Nutro since 1998. At that time I had 4 dogs who all needed to lose some weight. I started them on the weight control formula and within a year all 4 were down to lower weights. They all lived long, healthy, happy lives. 2 years ago, as my dogs were nearing the end of their lives, I took in 2 foster dogs. I was told that the male was a picky eater and his previous foster had trouble getting him to eat. You could tell, he was painfully skinny. I purchased Nutro Max for them and they loved it. They both still do. When I get dinner ready they prance around wanting the food. My male not only is no longer a picky eater, but at the last vet visit he was slightly overweight - time to move to weight management I guess. Last month we got a new puppy, a Greater Swiss Mountain Dog. I immediately switched her to Large Breed puppy since she will be over 100 lbs when full grown. She absolutely loves it and is growing like a weed. Bottom line is I know my dogs have done so well because of Nutro food. I would not feed my dog anything else and would highly recommend it to any dog owner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT! We feed five adult dogs (One Golden Retriever, and 4 Weimeraners) this food. It is great. They love it, and are all healthy. It gets pretty rambuncious at dinner time, but they all know where their bowl will be and eat theirs, then go lick the bowls of the others that finished first!

I have recommend this to all my family that have dogs and they couldnt beleive the differance in there weight and coat in a short period of time. Just wished it came in 50 pound bags.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has excellent features. I got my German Shepherd at 8 weeks old and have tried various foods on her. She didn't seem to like anything I gave her and turned into a fussy eater. My dog is now three years old and I have been using Nutro Max for the past year or two. Since I switched I have noticed a big change in her coat and shedding. After about three months being on Nutro Max her coat is soft and shiny. Not like a typical Shepherd. Her shedding has cut down dramatically also. She just loves the food and I love the effect on her. Thank you Nutro Max.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better Nutrition for my big babies. I have two large dogs, a yellow lab and a rotweiller. We adopted the Rotti when he was about 2. He has many health issues. We needed a food that would meet his nutritional needs and was reasonably priced as we spend quite a bit on the several medications he needs. Nutro was recommended to us. Both dogs love it and thrive on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Douglas Loves This Food, I LOVE the Price Douglas, a 90 lb active yellow lab, is not hard to please however, he does have a sensitive stomach. I tried many different foods, including the expensive organic kinds, and found that the Nutro Max is his favorite and mine because of all the natural healthy ingredients and less clean up. Nutro Max is also good for Douglas' joints which is so important to me as he is a pure bred lab. And, not only is the price the best price I've found for good dog food but it's sold at my local hardware store which is a hop, a skip and a jump away! Thanks Nutro

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't wait till dinner time We have 4 large breed dogs that all love their Max Large Breed Adult food. Luke, our coon hound, used to eat his food one piece at a time, it would take at least 20 minutes for him to finish his dinner. Meanwhile the other dogs would start circling like sharks, hoping to get a few pieces of his food. We switched to Nutro Max and discovered that Luke wasn't a pokey eater, he just didn't like the food. He now starts howling at the sight of the food bowl, and is the first one done with dinner. Thanks to Nutro max, I no longer have to babysit Luke during dinner time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can't even TRY to switch The only time my dog shows disappointment in me is when I try a dogfood less expensive than Max. He usually gobbles down his food immediately, except when I try a switch. Then he'll sniff the food and look up at me without eating. It's the saddest thing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nutro Max Large dog My dog,is a adopted rescue dog . The humane society fed him Nutro products and it was recommended to continue it. I tried many types but found best Nutro Max adult beef/Large breed,he was sensitive to Lamb/Rice and Chicken formulas which caused a hair thinning. He is now thriving,has a great coat and has grown!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I tried switching but... My first 2 dogs, Kelsey & Teddy were always fed Nutros Maxx. When Kelsey passed on, I had to find Teddy a new playmate, hence came my rottie puppy, Jack. I tried starting Jack out on a cheaper brand puppy food, but he wouldn't eat it. He'd sneak over to Teddy's bowl & start eating the Maxx. So I picked up the Maxx puppy food & he loved it! Since Teddy's passing, Lucy came along & I started her out on the maxx puppy food also. Jack & Lucy are now 3 & 4 yrs old, have not eaten anything but Maxx Large Breed food. People have complimented about their gorgeous, shiny coats. I have been feeding my 4 dogs Nutros for a span of over 16 years! I recommend this dog food to everyone! From the mouths of 4 different breed dogs-a Labrador Retriever, a German Shepherd, a Rottweiler, & a large Hound mix- it really is the best

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dogs love Max dog food! I have five dogs that I'm feeding Max Large Breed Adult dog food. Two are labs that will eat anything, one is German shepherd mix, and my other two finicky eaters are an Anatolian livestock guardian and a golden retriever mix. I was tired of trying to coax two of my dogs into eating their food. Since my daughter had the labs on Max Large Breed Adult dog food I decided to switch the other three dogs to it. It is wonderful. Their food dishes are always empty after each feeding, they look healthier, and you could never tell that one dog of the dogs is 12 and another is 13 years old by the way they run and play. I am so glad that I switched to Max Large Breed Adult dog food.
