My doxies love this food!

I’ve been feeding our fur babies since they were pups RC Brand Dog Food. They love the taste and texture and it makes their coats very shiny.

All of his Life

When my dog Link came into my life I found he was a bit finicky. I tried a few different foods from the pet store, IAMS, Purina, Eukanuba, Hills and then I saw Royal Canin's breed specific for dachshunds. He LOVED IT. I have had him for 10 years now and he is still eating this food, only he's on the 8+ year old Dachshund diet. This food I believe has not only been enjoyable to him, but has kept his coat health, and the his body fit. I recommend this diet to anyone I see who has a dachshund.

Mmmm Good!

My dogs love this food. I have four dachshunds and wish that they could afford to feed the his on a regular basis. The nutrition is sound and my dogs love the taste.
