Product Reviews
Royal Canin ® Size Health Nutrition™ Maxi Puppy dry dog food is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 45.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wide Variety! Bought this when my dog was a puppy and he did very well on it. Started him on medium puppy but after it was clear he was going to be a big boy we switched to Maxi Puppy. He loved it! Would flip his bowl over and play with it when done :) Love that they also have veterinary lines for specific health issues as one of my dogs has food allergies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Healthy happy dog My little guy, not so little anymore, is a 6 month goldendoodle. He was started on royal canin by the breeder aa a baby. I saw no reason to change. He is a very energetic and healthy 45 lbs. his tummy tolerates it well and even after having it for 3 meals everyday for months he still loves the taste.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Boys LOVE this dog food! Ever since we got our two Goldendoodle puppies in December, they have been fed with Maxi Puppy dog food. The love it! We need to put tennis balls in their food bowls to slow them down from eating it too fast! They are healthy and happy, and boy oh boy are they growing!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Switched 5 Month Old Labradoodle from TOTW I just recently switched my 5 month old labradoodle to Royal Canin. I had him on Taste of the Wild for two months and thought he was doing well on it. He would just pick at his food throughout the day which I didn’t like but he was gaining weight and showing no signs to make me think poorly of TOTW. Started feeding him Royal Canin three days ago and oh my goodness...he empties his bowl quickly so I’ve had to do four feedings throughout the day to slow him down. He was extra energy (which I didn’t think was possible) and only has two-three bowel movements a day from four-six before. Decided to switch to this dog food based on the reviews. Hoping this dog food will help his coat as he has recently started to shed way more than before (maybe blowing out his puppy coat). Happy with this purchase!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I have two puppies, there both six months old, and we have been feeding them Royal canin since the beginning, and they love it. One is a German Shepard and the other a chocolate lab, they each had their own food from Royal canin but it was really expensive to buy two big bags of food, so we now use the maxi one and they still love it a lot. They will keep eating Royal canin for life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for sensitive stomachs Have a 5 mo old German Shepherd puppy. For 2.5 months I had issues with her stools being loose and the vet recommended I switch her to a food that was easy to digest. It took a good 5-6 weeks after switching her over for all of the other stuff to fully get out of her digestive system, but totally worth it because she has improved and all back to normal!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great results! Owning a rescue, we have all sorts of puppies come to us, some are in a terrible condition. After being on the Royal Canin for a short period of time sees gleaming coats and sparkling eyes. This maxi is great for the bigger puppies, we know they will benefit from the correct ratios for healthy growth.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I loved the product in principle so I bought this for a litter of Bernese mountain dog puppies. Unfortunately one of the puppies ended up having an allergic reaction to one of the ingredients. believe me we know it was the food because they were on a different food, then switched to this and that was the only change

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! My vet recommended this for my big breed puppy and I'm so glad I listened. It's better for their digestive system and when my big puppy has to go to the bathroom you can tell a huge difference. You do not want to clean up after a big dog after they've eaten junk dog food. LOL

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saw AWESOME improvements! My lab mix puppy came from a shelter. He had a very rough coat, and I assumed it was just what he was mixed with. Within two weeks, I saw DRASTIC improvements in his coat. It is now shiny, and soft. This food is amazing. I feed my other dog and three cats Royal Canin!
