I only feed my children the best and that’s what Dexter is he’s my fur baby!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fussy Dane Food My Great Dane came to me at 6 weeks (I realize how early this is) with extreme GI issues and a terrible case of worms. Doctors prescribed food but nothing seemed to work for him. He was underweight and eating only chicken and rice for months. Royal canin fit his needs perfectly and he went from being a sickly, skinny puppy to a 126 pound 9 month old! He is now on Giant breed junior and we love it just as much! I just wish they made breed specific food for Dane puppies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our Saint Bernard puppy loves this food! Bruin, our 8-month-old Saint Bernard puppy, was having some trouble putting on weight. He is our very first giant breed dog. Our other dogs are 2 Golden Retrievers and a Labrador Retriever, so we are new to giant breeds. Our breeder had us switch him from puppy to adult food when he was 4 months old to slow his growth down since you don't want a giant breed to grow too fast (it's bad for their joints). We did as she said and switched him to an adult formula. We were planning to keep him on puppy food until he was 6 months old, but she's the breeder and knows more about this particular breed than we do, so we took her advice. However, since switching him to adult food, it's been nearly impossible to put any weight on him. He is extremely tall, but he was also too skinny. He was eating a good 8-9 cups of food per day, but you could still easily feel his spine as well as pretty much every other bone in his body. We knew that he was way too thin. After consulting our vet as well as some other Saint owners, we decided to go ahead and temporarily put him back on puppy food to help him bulk up a bit. That's when we discovered Royal Canin Giant puppy formula. After reading the reviews, we bought 2 bags and started him on it. Royal Canin is one of the very few companies who actually makes a giant breed puppy formula. Most other companies only offer large breed formulas, which does not suffice for a giant breed who will weigh up to 200 pounds as an adult. Bruin looks fantastic since starting on this food! He has definitely put on some much needed weight and his coat looks amazing. We will probably keep him on this formula until he turns a year old in 4 months. At that time, we will switch him to a Royal Canin adult formula. I can't say enough great things about this food. If you have a giant breed puppy, this should definitely be your go-to food!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for our growing girl We had to search to find a retailer that would offer our new English Mastiff puppy a nutritious food that would be perfect to help her grow up happy and healthy. Once we researched the giant breed puppy formula we were hooked. A great food that she loves!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Need measuring cup along with the dog food The food seems to be good but you should provide the measuring cup in each package. It gets very hard to determine the right amount without it and the measuring cups are typically never available at your stores. Please fix this moving forward .
