Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Product I have a 5 year old golden retreiver who has eaten this food since he was a puppy. He jogs 3 miles with me twice a week and this products provides him with the nutrition and vitamins including glucosamine chondroitin for his joints. Thank you Nutro for such a high quality product. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love this dog food. My Lab has been eating this food for just over 5 years and we haven't had any problems healthwise, and she has such a shiny coat, people always ask me what we feed because she is so beautiful. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome! Our dog loves this food! She is a 9 yr old black lab who has the energy of a puppy!. For a older dog with Lyme's disease she has a lot of spunk! March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Glucosamine and Chrondritin To my knowledge, the blue bag for Large Breeds is the only dog food with Glucosimine and Condritin.As 3 of my dogs are "getting up in age, I use only this dog food for them. My one Tibetan Mastiff is 12 yrs, and has arthritis in her hips.I believe this dog food is helping her stay active. Two of my other girls are either 6 or near 6 yrs old, and I feel this dog food is helping them stay young.I do free feeding, so the youngest, at 150 lbs, can benefit from my choice of dog food. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dogs love this food I have two Greater Swiss Mountain dogs ages 3 and 8. Your food was recommended by my breeder so I have never fed them anything else. They love it and they are very active and show no signs of joint problems which plagues this breed. Thank you for this high quality food and I strongly recommend your food to anyone for their pets. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this product! I have fed my dogs Nutro Natural Choice Large Breed Adult Dog Food for years. I love that they like the taste but more so I love how healthy it keeps them. They hardly ever have stomach problems and their coats are super soft and shiny. I will always use this brand! March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Callie loves her food! Our Lab mix, Callie loves her food. She has lots of energy and her coat is soft and shiny. She is a very healthy girl. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by great product A great food for our shepherd. It keeps him happy, playful, and energetic, and at 90lbs and almost two years old we're hoping he'll grow out of it eventually, lol. We also use nutro max for our cat and give them both greenies for treats! March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by best dog food ever I have a black Lab who is 7 years old. Everywhere we go, people comment on her amazing coat. Having other Labs prior to using Nutro, I always had skin problems with my Labs. It is an amazing product that I would recommend to any dog owner, I met a lady in New york, and she asked if I used Nutro. She had been a rep for Nutro and spot that I used it, by my Lab's shiny and beautiful coat, Thanks Nutro. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Keeping it simple, like the ingredients I'm just simply going to say that I have been feeding my Labrador dogs Nutro for years and my oldest is turning 15 next week! I truly believe that what she eats plays the biggest part in that. Simple, natural, nutritious food! March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Our Boxers have been loving this food for years All of my Boxers have loved this food. Sometimes we may mix chicken or fish with it. It has been thier main staple for years. My Boxers are healthy, their coats are always shiny and they are in great health. One is 9 years old and the other is 3 years old. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has great features. I have a female German Shepherd dog who is eight years old. She has been eating Natural Choice Large Breed Dog food since she was a few mib==onths old and looks forward eagerly to meal times.I have no desire to change her diet and would recommend it to everyone as being a superior quality dog food. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great dog food! I have an 8 year old yellow lab who LOVES this dog food. I have tried other brands in the past but he was never as excited at meal time as he is eating this. Despite his age, he has not had any joint problems and I have not had to switch him to a senior diet food. He is as active now as he was when he was 2 years old! I believe this is due largely to the quality of this dog food. Thanks Nutro, for such a great food for a very important member of our family! March 4, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by So happy with our switch to Natural Choice! We have noticed higher energy in our 5 year old hound and a healthier coat in both our dogs. We were hesitant to take a leap on a more expensive dog food but it has paid off. March 4, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy & Healthy Both my 10 month old golden retriever and my 3 year old white german shepherd are Nutro Large Breed dogs. My gsd's breeder recommended Nutro when he was a puppy, and we kept him in the Nutro family ever since. He tends to have a twitchy stomach, but has not had any problems with this food. Because both of the breeds are prone to hip problems, and unfortunately my young golden girl is already showing signs of hip dysplasia, I count on Nutro to give the dogs the nutrition they need for their bones and joints. March 4, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dogs love this stuff. Lets start of with I have two dogs, a 1 year old Rottweiler and a 1 year old Great Dane. Max is the Rottweiler and Moose is the Dane. These guys can put away the Nutro. They wait for me to give them more. They have been on Nutro ever since I got them as 8 week old puppies, Started on the Large Breed Puppy food and now onto the Large breed adult. We go to friends houses that do not feed their dogs Nutro and mine just look at their food, give it a sniff and walk away. I go through about 3 to 4 of the 35lbs bags a month, depending on their growth spurts. Max is weighing in at 82lbs right now and Moose comes in at a whopping 125lbs as we speak. My boys are very active and love to get out in the yard and stretch their legs, running and playing non-stop gives them a very large appetite. I love the Nutro products for my boys because I know that I'm giving them a very high quality of food, that will help in the health and give them a longer happier life. I love my boys and will do what ever I need to to give them a happy and loving life. March 4, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Cocker Spaniel likes to Steal my Mastiffs food It's so good my Cocker likes to try and eat the Large breed food for my Mastiff!! My cocker is on sensitive stomach small bites but for some reason he must think he is a large breed also. Both of my dogs love Nutro. Their coats really shine. I needed something that gave my giant breed dog the right nutrition that he needs. March 3, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great in every aspect We started our first puppy (rhodesian ridgeback mix) out on a bag of another high quality dog food for one bag. When we went to go buy a second bag a Nutro Specialist talked to us about Nutro and how good it was. My husband and I decided to try her on Nutro and we mixed the food for several weeks slowly decreasing the amount of the other brand. It was very difficult trying to get her to eat the other brand because she would pick out the Nutro and leave the other brand in her bowl. Since we have switched her which has been over a year now we have noticed better stools, a lot healthier skin and coat, she doesn't shed nearly as much. You can tell overall she feels so much better. Once we got our second dog (great pyr) we knew exactly what to start him on. He has been on Nutro from the day we got him. They jump up and down and get so excited every time it is feeding time. I will never use any other brand of dog food again for any dog I may own. This is a great product. February 27, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by He loves to eat your food. We had our dog on different food when he was very young, but he seemed to get bored with eating it. Someone recommended Nutro to us. Our large dog has been on this food for 5 years now and is healthy and happy. Naturally, we have his little sister on this food too, but since she is smaller we do not have her on the large breed formula. We are a Nutro Home! February 26, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Completely satisfied w/this product Firt, our dogs love this food. It's important to us that our dogs like what they eat. They all have healthy appetites and enjoy their meals, with Nutro Large Breed dog food being what they've eaten since they matured. Prior to that, they ate the Nutro Large Breed puppy food, which they also loved. We've had people ask us, including our vet, what our dogs eat because they look so healthy, plus their hair is shiny and healthy looking, also. So we're free, living advertisement for Nutro dog products. February 26, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Our Picky Eater Loves Natural Choice! We have a Husky who is a very picky eater. For 1.5 years he would not eat the same food for more than 3 days in a row. After the third day, he would just stare at his bowl for several minutes and then walk away. It was as if he was saying "I've tried this food, and I don't like it. I refuse to eat any more!" After a few days of not eating anything, we would give him another type of food and the cycle started over.While I was shopping in Petsmart, a Nutro representative informed me about the Nutro line and suggested I try it for our Husky. I brought a bag of Natural Choice Large Breed Adult Dog Food home and he loved it! And 4 months later, he still loves it!I am very pleased with this food. Not only does our Husky love his food, but it is much easier to "clean up" after him now that he is on a consistent diet of a quality dog food. Thanks Nutro! February 26, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dogs love it, I love it! It was a challenge to find a food that would work for both of my large dogs. One has digestive issues, the other has hip dysplasia and skin issues. Natural Choice has given both dogs more energy and healthy skin and coats. We no longer battle GI problems, and the dog with hip dysplasia is now able to climb stairs without pain! The food has made my life considerably easier, and both dogs love it! February 25, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has most nutrition for my dog. I have noticed that my dog Lokahi has a shiny coat all these 11 years that I have been giving her these Nutro products. I am very happy with her health and would recommend Nutro products to anyone. February 24, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Large Dogs Love It I like this particular food because my dogs will eat it every time without stomach upset. It does not contain fillers like grains. Dogs naturally would not eat grains. It also does not contain lamb which is a product I would not consider. February 24, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dog is in great health My dog is in great health -- lean and fit, and loves nutro. He's been on the same diet for years, and at age 6 still is mistaken for a puppy! February 24, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Longtime Nutro User I have been a dog owner all my life and did dog-rescue for 2 and a half years. All the dogs I fostered were fed Nutro large-breed adult, along with my golden girls. Within 2 feedings, each dog had solid, safe stools. I've always recommended this food to adopting families and other people who need a quality food for their pets. It's been a staple in my dog's diets for years. February 24, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very High Quality I was given a recommendation to try this food because the ingredients are much better than the "grocery store" brands. I was surprised to see the difference in quality, as Natural Choice is much better quality of food than other brands. It may be slightly more expensive, but it's worth it! February 24, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by glad I found this A friend told me to use Nutro dog food 7 years ago when we got our first puppy we now have to two dogs and they are in great shape there fur is the softest you could ever pet... they are both over 50lbs in weight and they have great joints.. I love nutro and always tell anyone i can about there products. February 24, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Supposedly picky eater loved it immediately We rescued our Belgian Sheepdog, Angel when she was 4 1/2 years old. She had been labeled a picky eater. I purchased the Nutro for Large Breeds and she has loved it since the first time she was given it. We never have had a problem and the pure joy she shows when it is time to eat melts your heart! February 24, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent food for adult dogs We have been using the large breed adult food for the last 8 years. We find that our Rottweilers have beautiful coats, white teeth and no digestive problems, like we had with other top brand foods. I have done a lot of research to make sure our dogs get the best, no fillers, no pieces parts in this food. Smaller kibble keeps my older dogs from choking and they eat less and stay fit with no extra weight on those hips, which is very important for big dogs. When you open the bag you know your getting good food, it doesn't smell greasy or that strong dog food smell, it smells like veggies and isn't greasy in your hands at all. We've tried the rest, now we're staying with the best! February 24, 2011
