Rated 5 out of 5 by Highly recommend this dog food I have a 3 year old Golden Retriever. He's a service dog to our 7 year old son. The organization we got him from feeds Nutro Natural Choice to their dogs. So, naturally, I wanted to keep it the same. I've had dogs in the past and used other brands. I really love this dog food! Baker loves it, too! He is a healthy weight, beautiful coat, less stool to clean up in the's just a great food. My son enjoys feeding his dog. I believe that for Baker to be at his best and do his best for our son, that he needs the best dog food. I believe that Nutro is the best dog food. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding for large breed dogs. My German Shepherd is like most... she loves to play and be active, but can be perfectly content relaxing on the back porch. For those times she's on the move, I want her to have enough energy to last for her active pace and the proper nutrients to protect her joints, skin, coat and bones. The Nutro Natural Choice Large Breed Adult Dog Food does that and more. It keeps my big girl (90 lbs) happy and healthy... which makes me happy! Thanks, Nutro! March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great food Our yellow lab is 6 years old, and people keep telling us how that can't believe how soft her coat is. She is just as super-active as she was as a puppy. Also, she has NEVER had any health issues. She maintains an ideal 50-55 pound weight year round. Yard clean up is very minimal with this food and it seems that she doesn't need to eat as much of this food as the store brands to feel satisfied and have all the energy she requires. This food may seem more expensive short-term that store brands, but let me tell you, the long term cost benefits are big and very noticeable. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by We couldnt have made a better selection! We have a Mastiff, friends of our suggested we use the Natural Choice brand since that is what they have used for their mastiffs. Boy were they right! our dog is just over a year old now and has a very healthy coat, bery healthy in general and her...well..."deposits" are very easy to pick up in the back yard! We would recommend this food to anyone raising any dog! March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Dane's longevity is owed to NUTRO! Our blue great dane is approaching 8 years old and we own her beautiful healthy life to the Nutro Large Breed dog food. We have been feeding her the large breed since we got her at 8 weeks old. Still to this day she absolutely loves it! Her large bones enjoy the glucosame that is in every bag of the large breed Nutro food. We can't thank you enough for making a healthy, yummy dog food for our Bella! March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Don't fix something that is not broken. For over seven years my goldens have been raised on the feeding of Natural Choice. Their coats are shiney and bones strong. Thanks Nutro! March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by I Feed The Best Jake Is my 110 lb Doberman and Josie is my 55 lb Boxadore. Both have been on Nutro since they were little. They have the shinest blk cost and have retained their weight on Nutro. I had tired something else one time when Jake was little and he was allergic and had to bring him to the Vet . They both look great on Nuto not fat or dull. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Recommended to us We have a full-blooded German Rottweiler who will be 3 years old next month. We were feeding him the Eukanuba made especially for Rottie's then one day we were in the pet store where we bought his food and one of the associates there began telling us that the Eukanuba for Rottie's was being discontinued. She then began telling us about Natural Choice. We went and read the ingredients on the bag and found the difference in the 2 brands. Remi loves Natural Choice. He weighs just over 100 lbs and is the biggest "lap-puppy". He can go through a 40 lb bag of food in a month. We saw a difference in his coat and playfulness. He has always been playful, but putting him on Natural Choice made him even more playful. He rides on the "big truck" with daddy and has since he was a pup. He loves riding and can jump up into the truck from the ground without any problems. Rotties are known for hip joint problems and Natural Choice is a good choice of food to help keep those problems at bay along with keepin his coat shiny. Natural Choice---keep up the good work with your dog food. Remi loves it. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Chow Time We have a 95 pound 2 1/2 year old German Shepard female that we have just recently switched to this product. Her water and food dishes are in our laundry room so it is not a large room. With her old food I would fill the bowl and she would make her way to the food at her pleasure. Now when I fill her bowl with Natural Choice she is waiting right next the bowl and ready to chow. I have to plan my exit strategy before I place the food down because the two of us pretty much fill up the room. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Won't buy anything else Your dog is a member of your family and you wouldn't feed your kids McDonalds everyday, so why would you do it for your dog. That is why we stick with Nutro, it is the BEST!!!!! March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by healthy happy dog My dog absolutely loves the Nutro Natural Choice Large Breed dog food.He is an Australian Shepard and needs alot of energy. The vet has told me he is in perfect health and weight. I have been giving him this food for 3 years and he has never been sick. This dog food also gives him a very shiny coat. I highly recommend this dog food. Thank you for making such a good dog food. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is great Nutro is a great food and it does everything that it promises on the bag March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pyrenees won't eat anything else! Since they were six-week old puppies, my two Great Pyrenees have eaten Nutro's large breed formula. They are my livestock guardians and need to be strong and healthy. When one of the dogs was injured and needed hospitalization, the vets had trouble getting him to eat anything. When I arrived with the supply of Nutro, problem solved! I am certain the food keeps their immune system strong as they are exposed to myriad farm animals as well as potential predators. It also provides extra nutrients needed for these large canines who weigh in at 85 and 130 lbs. People always admire their beauty and temperament and I have no doubt Nutro plays a role in that! March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product My dog loves the flavor. I have fed Nutro products to all my dogs. I believe it is the best food available. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Our dog loves it! Of all the Nutro foods offered, our Boxer seems to like this one the best. He's a 2 year old boxer and his coat is beautiful! He gets complimented on his appearance all the time! March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wow, what a difference I have a three year old Mastiff. I was told to watch his growth and to use a certain product. Well, we had skin and coat problems. He seemed lathargic and just did not seem to be a puppy. I stumbled into Nutro by the bright blue package. I saw the ingredients and said I have to give this a try. Wow, what a difference. I was surprised at how much it changed his energy level. He acts like a puppy now, jumping around and he seems to have so much more energy. His coat and skin problems have disappeared. I will never go back to anything and I have changed this diet for all my dogs. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by my 3 dogs have never been healthier. a nutro rep was in the store when i was purchasing my old dog food. she approached me and asked about my dogs. breed, age, activity etc. i have a lab/boxer mix (10 years old) a lab/pit mix (3 years old) and a full pit (just turned 1) . as kyllie, our oldest one started showing signs of old age, we brought home malibu, to keep her young and active. then they both started getting lazy so we brought home cruella. we soon realized our plans were not working. i had them on what i thought was decent food. i switched to nutro when cruella was brought home at 4 weeks. kyllie has never been healthier and active. our dogs do not shed anymore, they shine beautifully now. kyllie has never been so active, even in her puppy years. it was all in her diet. not old age. i have the healthiest vibrant dogs now. i have nutro to thank for that. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product keeps our dog healthy We have used the Large Breed Adult food for 8 years! Our wonderful lab/great dane dog, Marco, thrives on it. He is now 10 years old and has never had a vet visit for illness or health issues! Love, regular exercise, and Natural Choice Large Breed Adult food twice a day keeps him healthy, happy, and strong even as he turns gray. Thank you for a great product and a reasonable price. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dogs like this food. My dogs like this food. But then, sometimes I think they will eat anything. That aside, one is a big dog, going on 9 years old and he still acts like a puppy, so I think that might say something good about the quality of the product. Did i mention that they also eat our mail when we are gone overnight? March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Food Our dog Skippy is 2 years old. We feed him Natural Choice since we got him with 8 weeks. Everybody loves his fure.It s shiny and soft. He is healthy and full of energie.We know , it" all about the dog food. Skippy is a mix between AUSI and Greyhound . March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Macy Mae: Golden/Lab Mix After bringing our puppy home, we had kept her on the "cheap" brand the people we got her from were using....but not for very long. Her coat was so coarse and dry on that stuff! We soon found the Nutro brand and have never turned back. Every pet deserves Nutro products!! March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Value I have a 18 month old boxer who loves this dog food. He is extremely active and he maintains a perfect weight with a great coat. I would recommend the food for any dog over 50 lbs. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Healthy, Happy, Shiny and smells good, too! Our dog, Autumn, is 9 years old. We have had her on Nutro dog food for her entire life. She is a beautiful Shepherd-Husky mix with lots of energy and love for all. Everytime we take her to the vet, he is amazed at how healthy she is and how shiny her coat is. He always comments about her great weight, sweet demeanor, and intelligence.One time someone gave us a large bag of another brand dog food. We thought we'd use it and save some money. After just a day or so of eating the other brand, we walked into the house to a horrible smell of "dog". Nine years of Nutro and Autumn never smelled like "dog"! We immediately changed the food back to Nutro and the "dog" smell went away. Yeah, Nutro! We are believers. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wouldn't buy anything else We love Nutro Large Breed Adult Dog Food for our 6 year old black lab. In fact Nutro is the only food she's known except for "people food" that hits hits the floor and she gets to it before we do! She began life with Nutro puppy food, and then graduated to the Large Breed. We chose this because of the ingredients and believe it's the best food for her. We always thought she had the softest, shiniest coat, but thought we were just partial to our dog - but she is consistantly told the same by other people. Glucosamine wasn't something she really needed due to her age but we believe she will certainly benefit from it - possibly even more so later on in life because she's had it for all of her adult years. Thank you for such a great food for our dog! March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Feeding my babies My dogs are my children and this is what I feed them. They have eaten this wonderful dog food since they were puppies and are active, healthy, happy girls. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by this product was made for my lab/great dane mix We adopted Buzz when he was only 11 weeks old. He is a rescue dog that my son found on-line and was described to us as a black lab mix. It did not take long to realize what the other part of the mix was. He is now 25" tall, lean legs and around 110 pounds. The great dane part of Buzz is eqally loving and loveable. We wanted to make sure that Buzz had just the right diet as he grew and grew more beautiful. Petsmart became our guide in many ways in helping teach Buzz manners and us nutritional knowledge of different and most appropriate dog food choices for our pet. Natural Choice for Large Breed Adult Dogs was (no pun intended) our natural choice. Buzz will turn five years old on March 14, 2011 and has been a pure joy and has greatly benefited from our choice of 'Natural Choice' for his dog food. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is perfect for all breeds We have 3 different breeds of hunting dogs. They are extremely energetic, have great stamina and healthy coats. This dog food provides the essential needs that our dogs require for long, hard days spent afield. March 10, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very Good I have an 8 year old Belgian Melinois that has eaten this food since he was a year old. He loves it. Trouble now weights 60 lbs and loves to run and play. I started him on this product because it was recommended by a clerk who said there would be less waste and she was right. The only down side is it is over priced. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gone in a flash!!! Meal time for Parker is over in a flash. He absolutely loves his Nutro dog food. Knowing that Goldens are prone to joint issues I feed him the Nutro for healthy joints. While he is only 21 months old I wanted to get a head start on preventing something that might occur in his later years. In addition to protecting his joints he has the most beautiful coat of fur! Parker is a cream colored Golden with a bit of reddish tint on his ears and down his back. Such a handsome boy! In the sun his coat glistens beyond believe; which I attribute to his diet of Nutro. Parker is definitely a Nutro dog, loving every bit of his meal times. He is also a Nutro snacker enjoying the cookies, as we call them, for tartar protection. He would really love to win a years free supply of dog food and so would his mommy! Thanks Nutro for making healthy products!! Woof Woof!! March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great food and a great price! We have 2 Golden Retrievers, One is 10 years old, Tucker. He is on Natural Choice Senior Large Breed. Then we have a 1 year old puppy, Daisey Mae, who is on the Natural Choice Large Breed Adult now. They eat it very easily and the kibble sizes are perfect for a younger dog and an older dog.They love to hear the food rustling around when its dinnertime and come running! They do well on them and so far so good! March 10, 2011
