Rated 3 out of 5 by Ingredients and price My dog loves this food and I have been feeding it for about a year now . The only thing I don't agree on is the chicken meal specially after seeing so many new products with real meat as the first ingredient.Second I know you get what u pay for but iv also been seeing all this new products have a lot better ingredients for a lot better price February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by "Performs" as advertised We have a 2 y/o rescue lab... with boundless energy, and pure muscle. We feed her Nutru High Energy - she will chase and fetch endlessly. Guarantee - your arm will tire before she does! Her recovery time post-fetch is amazing. She's ready to go after minimal rest. High Energy works! February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by great food! I have five very active Australian Shepherds who have been on Natrual Choice High Energy dog food for many years now. I am extremely happy with their overall appearance as well as their ability to maintain energy throughout the day when we are competing or working. One of my Aussies is certified in human remains detection and this food helps give her enenrgy to work. I also compete with my dogs in agility trials.I have had many compliments about my dogs, and I am always happy to tell folks that I feed my dogs Nutro products. February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Delicious and nutritious....Perfect for our Maggie When we went from nutro large breed puppy to the adult food Maggie was requiring larger feedings to keep the weight on her. That's when I found the high energy food and that seemed perect for her. We were able toFeed her the recommended amount and she got back to an ideal weight with out having to over feed her. This food also makes for nice poops so yard scooping is easy. She never has a tummy ache. Maggie is a 75 lb German shepherd. Highly recommend nutro products, her coat is beautiful!! February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good for active herding breeds I have a Belgian Malinois and anyone who has one will tell you that when they are outside they are constantly in motion. Whether she is running the fence line to let the horses know she's on patrol or keeping the chickens all together, she's always moving - and I don't mean walking! Nutro Natural Choice High Energy has been the best for her and helps her keep weight on without a lot of fillers that make her skin itch terribly. It may seem like an expensive food, but it's really a quite a value because a 40 lb bag lasts us about a month for a 60 lb dog. February 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding! My lab has not slowed down a bit. She's 4 1/2 and eats only Nutro and has been commended for her coat and fitness level everywhere we go. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by the best results I've seen This is one of the best dog foods I have tryed so far and I will stick with it. It certainly built my dog to be a lot stronger and more energised during his daily jogs February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by We needed a specialty food! Our Blue Heeler mix is always 'on the move"! She has difficulty maintainling a good weight on regular food. High Energy is the answer for us!! February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by 5 stars I have an English Pointer -a super active dog. I needed a food that could give him nutrition and keep some weight on his naturally thin frame . The high energy formula is perfect and does not bother his sensitive stomach. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tootsie and Lulu say thank you !! We have been buying Nutro for our German Shorthair Pointers for years!! We currently have two 2 year olds that eat the high energy food and they are not only healthy but lean, shiny, bright-eyed and happy with life. Our older shorthairs ate everything from puppy food to adult to senior products. All lived until 15 years old and I know that we owe a lot of their long lives to Natural Choice dog food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Moka, the agility dalmation Moka is a high performance agility dog who needs a food that will keep her at top form. Moka, is a two year old, dalmation pup who loves to run. Nutro’s High Energy dog food helps her do just that. She can run and jump at top speeds and makes turns as quick as lightning. It helps her to fly through the weaves, flow through the tunnels and get to the finish line as fast as possible. The nutrients that Nutro puts into their food helps Moka be ready when the time comes to turn on the afterburner again. We’ve been using this food for over two years now and would recommend it to anyone with a high energy dog. Moka sure loves it. She can’t get enough of it! February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by A+ My dog loves it. He has maintained his weight through out all his activities. Highly recommend!!! February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by great food for fast paced breeds I have two male german shorthiar pointers so the need for a high energy food is put to its test with this breed and my two boys.I have been using the high energy nutro for them for over seven years and they love it.I feel the quality is great and it gives them everything a high energy breed needs in there food.I am very satisfied with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by A happy Dog My golden retriever, Pono, is extremely active on a daily basis-He loves to run and swim in the ocean, retrieving balls and sticks that are thrown for him, roll in the sand, sunbathe and chase away whatever he considers a trespasser (especially birds) out in the yard. He takes his guard dog duties very seriously even though that often means a couple barks and then a kiss!Since starting him on Natural Choice a couple years ago, he has a lot more energy and his coat is fuller and more beautiful than it was ever before. He also loves the taste and can't wait for his dinner. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Never Going Back!! We adopted our Pit Bull Bailey from the SPCA when she was 6 months old and decided to change her food after learning about the harmful additives and fillers found in lots of other dog food products. Almost immediately after switching to the Nutro Company's Natural Choice line of products, Bailey's nails strengthened, she was shedding less and full of energy to keep her active all day. Nutro Company has a variety of different products that will surely meet your dogs specific needs. I would recommend this product to anyone wanting to ensure their pets live a full, playful and healthy life! February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pet Tracking Dogs Pet Tracking Dogs. This product helps my tracking dogs keep their energy at high levels. I have used it for over eight years without any problems. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Best! I mix this with the Nutro puppy food for my two long haired chihuahuas. They are very picky eaters, and this is the ONLY food they like. They know what's good! February 17, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great winter food. I have ten dogs. One Malamute/Pyrenees mix, one Siberian Husky, four Alaskan Huskies and four Alaskan mutts. In the wintertime I change their food to higher protein and fat content varieties for their seasonal needs with coat growth and energy for warmth.This High Energy formulation has most of what I want for them and is a Nutro product which means I only have to shift the formulation per season, not the brand. They like it and it has worked very well for them over the past several wintersThe only negative I find with it is that it lacks a vegetable mix that I get with Nutro Ultra. I mix the Ultra with the High Energy to cover this but it would be a great wintertime food on it's own with the addition of vegetables and another lean meat protein.I do highly recommend this brand and variety for quality, price, including the rewards program and my experience with Nutro over the past several years February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has helped us out with our dog Our dog is a malamute/husky. So this high protein/ high energy dog food has allowed him to be very active and not loose weight like other brands were. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love this product! I recomend it to everyone! I have been feeding Nutro High Energy dog food to my three Boxers for years. I love how it makes their coats shiny, they eat less, and their waste is less! We all no how much waste there is with three dogs! A couple years back our momma dog had puppies, I was feeding them nutro before they went to their new homes and highly recommended to the new parents to continue them on the food. We all no how much energy Boxers have, and this food is wonderful for their muscle mass and wieght. I wouldnt feed them anything else, well worth the money spent! Thank You Nutro! February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent for highly active dogs When my Weimaraner, Ty, started dropping weight due to hunting season I started to worry. As he was already on Nutro Large Breed Maintenance, I switched his food to the High Energy formula. What a difference! He gained back the weight he had "run off", his muscles became more well defined, and his coat became luxurious.I was so pleased that I kept feeding him the food during agility season. He looks and performs beautifully. Thanks Nutro! February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent product!!! I put on the Nutro Food Products/Kortright dog race for the siberian husky club of Canada in Southern Ontario. It is a lot of work to prepare the trail get sponsors email spectators(1300 over out to watch over two days-Jan29/30/2011).By the time the weekend comes I am usually to tired to race.This year I managed to race at my own event and finished third in the 3 dog class. I feed High Energy Dog food right through the year. During the hotter months I feed maintaince but starting late September until March I will feed the High Energy. I haven't actually set up with my pet food store that they stock it so I usually pick it up from one of the three stores close to my home.My siberian Huskies in the cold months train alot and I found that this product helps them to recover quickly especially when some of my races are two days events. The second day is the day that the races are won.If the team doesn't recover they will run slower the second day. If a team runs faster it proves the sucess of the teams training and feeding product.My siberian's have beautiful coats and they are always full of energy. I have a dog turning 10 this May 2011 and she runs and plays in my yard like a puppy. February 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dog LOVES it! I own a 22 month old Siberian Husky named Nikita. Talk about high energy! She is always either chasing my 2 boys or being chased by them. I get tired just watching it all!Nikita LOVES her NUTRO dog food. She gets so excited when she knows it's time to eat. WE have been very happy with the results of this product and I highly recommend it to anyone with a high energy dog. February 17, 2011
