Rated 5 out of 5 by from Papillon's love it I am a hobby breeder of papillon's for the betterment of the breed and quality of conformation to breed standard. I only use royal canin small puppy on my papillon's from the first time they are started on dry food till out of the puppy stage and onto the royal canin small bites for adults. I have never used any other dog food on my papillon's. In the past I have used several brands on other dogs. But with royal canin they are much more healthy and beautiful looking pups.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Ever Love there product. I breed Imperial Shih Tzus. They are under 9 lbs and need extra protein. This product is the perfect bite size (I have never found another quality dog food that customs to them like Royal Canin). The key to a health dog is the food as a puppy. Mine are healthy and happy because of Royal Canin. The other great thing is the customer service you get if you call with questions. This is helpful for my new puppy owners. Thank you!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pups love it and so do adult dogs. My adult dogs are fed this. They eat it up. Puppies love it and are sent to new home with it. I have puppies at 3 weeks old that started nibbling on it after feeding on mom! LOL, special for them. Keeps them happy and healthy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy and Healthy Results I've been buying Royal Canine for several years now and I'm so please with you dog food. It's so easy to feed because my dogs can't wait for the great taste, jumping to get their bowl and it's so healthy, with its high protein I don't have to worry about my dogs, their coats are shiny and eyes bright. You can just look at them and see that their happy and healthy dogs. I love them like children so I want them to live a long time. So I feed what's best for their health and happiness.... And that's feeding Royal Canin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product!! I had bought my Pomeranian puppy these so called "natural" foods (blue buffalo, wellness, etc.) None which he liked. He was losing a significant amount of weight and wasn't weighing his proper weight. It wasnt until my groomer recommended Royal Canine that he started gaining weight. I barely place his bowl down and he finishes it within minutes. I would never turn to any other brand. His fur has even gotten healthier after shifting to this brand. Would definitely recommend for any dog owners who have a puppy that is a picky eater, like mine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing brand! This brand is amazing! I love the way it smells, the way the food feels and best of all my pets enjoy every bite! I have 2 small breed dogs and 1 big breed dog that I used to feed a different brand that just felt and smelled horrible. So I switched and I'm so glad I did. This is the type of brand that isn't to expensive but is just as good as those expensive brands. So your pets are happy and wallet is too. Purchase price is amazing for the amount of the product! Amazing brand!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing Else Is Good Enough for My Ringo! Ringo was delivered to us with a Royal Canin starter kit. It is the only puppy food that he's ever had and ever will. Every breeder and veterinarian that I have spoken to have told me I've made a great choice by raising my Ringo on Royal Canin! He's 7 months old now. See for yourself.....
