No re-sealable bags

I am a huge fan of your dog food and buy 3 seperate bags every month. I buy the 3kg Digestive, the 15kg Maxi and the 7kg Royal Canin Dachshund food. But what frustrates me, is the fact that the dachshund bags no longer seal after opened. Why??????

Pretty darn good

I have had 3 or my 4 dachshunds on Royal Canin since puppyhood. They do love it so when the pups are happy I'm happy.

Only food you should consider

My babies Milo and Violet have been on this food since I got them at 4 months ago. They are piebald mini siblings. They just turned one year old and everytime I take them to the vet or to daycare, I get so many compliments and questions because they are so healthy and their ears are clean and backs are straight and they have such a shiny coat. Never will I ever consider feeding them anything else!
