Rated 5 out of 5by Maxie My Cockapoo loves it. I just bought Merrick's Duck and Sweet Potato kibble. My Cockapoo is incredibly fussy and I went through at least five dry dog foods the Dog Food Advisor recommend, but he wouldn't eat any of them I bought some Blue Buffalo wet food and he wouldn't eat that either. He eventually would eat Blue Buffalo puppy kibble but I had to take him off that because he is now two. I tried Merrick's but was sure he wouldn't eat it. He LOVES it and I no longer mix it with his old food to make the switch easy on him. I will buy this forever. 07/03/2016
Rated 5 out of 5by dixieryder amazing!! I was feeding my very picky boxer cooked chicken thighs during the winter months to help keep some weight on her, now its warming up decided to try a dry food. So one day I stopped at Petco and asked the Rep what she would suggest for a picky eater and she pointed out this product: Real Duck sweet potato, bought a small bag just to try and went back this week to get a big bag!! Baby girl loved it! I was amazed how she went right to it the first time. My mom's dog is a picky eater too, and I am taking her a sample this weekend when I go visit! 05/03/2016
Rated 5 out of 5by Buddy Thank you Merrick! A month ago I started our 10 yr shihtzu, Max, on grain free kibble. The difference in 2 weeks was already noticeable. In the past 8 years Max was to 6 different vets. It started as occasional ear infections, vomitting bile frequently, sore swollen feet and pads. Then turning to red, sore, itchy skin that would get weepy, hair lose on belly and an awful yeasty smell. Vets would prescribe several different meds, ointments, ear drops, medicated shampoo, do skin scrapings that showed yeast, and last summer punch biopsies in 6 different locations. He was on prescription Royal Canine PD for several years. About all that helped with was the vomitting bile no longer occurred. This winter I was to the point of thinking maybe there wasn't much more that could be done for him. After reading your reviews I figured we had nothing to lose. Max is now a different dog! Active, happy, hair is growing back, skin is no longer irritated looking and the terrible odor is gone!! I wish I would have found it sooner and that just 1 of 6 vets would have suggested trying to feed grain free. 04/29/2016
Rated 5 out of 5by Jessie Switched WOW!!
What a difference this food makes. I switched from a very popular performance dogfood, that most exhibitors use, to Merrick and the difference in her skin and coat was outstanding. Although the other dog food was ok, I had to add canned food, just so they would eat the entire bowl. Most of the time I ended up throwing away almost a 1/3 of the food. What a waste. Not with Merrick. The minute they hear the velcro seal unzip, they stop whatever they're doing and high tail it straight to the kitchen. This is an outstanding product and I hope they're here to stay! 04/14/2016
Rated 5 out of 5by kpome Overall Amazing! I believe in good nutrition so I had my 8 month Blooodhound on a high end dog food since I got her. I eventually realized that even though the food was great, it wasn't agreeing with her. Her stools were much too loose so I figured that maybe it was much too high in protein for my bloodhound. So I switched her to Merrick Grain Free Real Duck + Sweet Potato. I wanted a food that is Grain Free and overall great for your pet. That is exactly was this food is. My Bloodhound is doing great! Stools are as should be and she absolutely loves the taste. So does my Yorkie mix. My little one has never had any problems or allergies with anything but usually takes a while to eat but with this food she gobbles it right up! 11/18/2015

Rated 5 out of 5by Mick Bella's Favorite! Just wanted to say how happy I am to feed my dog Merrick. Bella absolutely LOVES ANY of your Grain Free dry dog food... we give her a variety of the cans you have available as a topping for the dry food as well. I love how there are REAL chunks of meat in the cans, and you are guaranteed to have every ingredient come from the USA!! Bella goes to the bathroom less, eats less, and has WAY more energy! Her coat is amazingly shiny too! Also proud to say she had her yearly check up, and all is great! Thanks Merrick for helping me keep my dog healthy, and giving me a brand I can trust!! 07/15/2015
Rated 5 out of 5by Krista Thank You Merrick!!! Thank you Merrick for being an awesome food for my Miniature Pinscher!! Tried so many different foods over the past 3 years of working at a Pet store and being educated on Dog foods. By far this is the best investment I have ever made for her. The duck and sweet potato she loves more then any other flavor and as soon as I am putting it in her bowl it is being eaten on the way in. Any customer I encounter asking me for a better food for only response from me is try Merrick its the best by far!!! 07/05/2015
Rated 5 out of 5by Bull Terrier Mom No more itchy Bull Terrier Switched my itchy bull terrier to the duck and sweet potatoes and she looks great! It has three months now and she is looking shinny no more bald hot pink itchy patches popping up. And she even slimmed down a bit! This is my 7th brand I have tried over the last few years. Hopefully the last! 06/12/2015
Rated 5 out of 5by Bobcatsteph3 Excellent food My Shih Tzus happily ate this several years (recently switched to Merrick Weight Management). I love the company and the ingredients they use, they love the taste.
Both my dogs have no digestive issues at 10 and 11 years of age and I believe Merrick keeps them healthy.
I usually mix their dry food with Merrick canned food. 04/22/2015
Rated 5 out of 5by MerrickandEve Helped with Tearing I have two Maltese Shih Tzu and had a hard time finding a food that would help with tearing and red discharge from glands. We started using Merrick and have found it to be the best for our dogs . Grain free is the way to go. 02/06/2015
Rated 5 out of 5by doxiefollies Amazing Duck I run a dachshund rescue, plus have 2 Afghans, 1 Giant Schnauzer, 3 Chihuahuas and 2 Pekingnese. They all did wonderful on the Duck dry kibble...seen improvements in their coats....we have a lot of seniors with sensitive stomachs and they did amazing on the duck dry kibble. Also, add different canned flavors, about a tbsp. added to the dry. The only negative aspect, is the priced was raised approx. $10 a bag for the duck...now, our supporters do not buy and donate the duck because of the large increased price. Other than that, all our rescues did amazing on it. 02/06/2015
