Food is great my dog has preferred this brand food for all of his life, we started with the puppy and transitioned him to this one as an adult. WE tried switching to another brand but our dog remained loyal to this brand :)

No go!

Unfortunately neither of my picky little monsters will eat it. And I have heard such good things about it.

Rileys favorite food

My 2 yr. old King Charles Cavalier is a Royal Canin customer. We started her on the puppy food until she reached 10 mo. We then transitioned her to the small dog adult dog recipe. She devours it within minutes.

Great Food for Picky Eaters

Our Fido is a picky eater and this is the only dog food that I’ve found that he will eat without having to add toppers. He really likes it. I would give it 5 stars but, unfortunately, the resealing mechanism failed about halfway through the bag.

Great food

I have been feeding Darcy Royal Canin since she was a puppy and am now converting her to small adult. She is very healthy and growth appropriate. She is a shitzu/bishon mix - shishon!

Good Food but not for my puppy.

When my puppy turned 10 months old I started slowly incorporating the small breed adult with her small breed puppy. I noticed that the first time I used the small breed adult she had some soft stools. Didn't think much of it at the time. So I kept mixing the small breed adult and puppy and she continued to have soft stools and some mild diarrhea. Finally I stopped giving her the small breed adult and switched to the breed specific adult and her soft stools are now normal stools. Not sure if this food made her have diarrhea but it did stop once I stopped the small breed adult. She is fine with the breed specific food from Royal Canin.

Disappointed that corn is one of the main ingredients. I have used this brand for many years, but I stopped because of the corn

Royal Canin is the best dog food I have ever fed my dogs! I have been feeding it for over 10 years and have had wonderful outcomes even with dogs who required a special needs diet. I highly recommend it.
