Royal Canin knows what makes your German Shepherd magnificent is in the details. While these faithful watchdogs are highly intelligent and protective, they’re also big softies with thick double-layered coats. They can benefit from the right diet to support bone and joint health, maintain a healthy skin and coat, and support digestive health, all of which are important for this hardworking breed.

Royal Canin German Shepherd Adult dog food is tailor-made nutrition created just for your pure breed dog. Whether you call them a German Shepherd or an Alsatian, this exclusive breed-specific diet is uniquely formulated to your dog, with the specific nutrients to help them thrive. The unique kibble shape and texture are specially designed for your German Shepherd’s long, strong muzzle and teeth, encouraging them to chew. Highly digestible proteins and specific fibers maintain digestive health as this breed tends to have poor stool quality. Exclusive nutrients reinforce the skin barrier. EPA and DHA from fish oil help maintain skin and coat health. And glucosamine and chondroitin help support healthy bones and joints for large, athletic builds. Mix in or complement with Royal Canin German Shepherd wet dog food for a meal that’s sure to have your loyal buddy standing at attention.

My German Shepard Loves IT

Our German Shepard "Trooper" was on the Royal Canin Puppy dry food and now has moved to the Adult German Shepard food. He loves it and knows the time of day is is fed. Even though a little more expensive he is a fine spec of a German Shepard and so healthy. Thanks to your product Royal Canin.

RC GS Equals Beautiful Coat

Ok being honest here, this food make my girl’s coat shine. But she started throwing up bile wondering if it was the food making her do so I switched to purina pro sport and her coat looks bad. So I put her back on RC GS and she started throwing up bile again. I’m a bit perplexed for this is made for sensitive digestive systems. Anyone else have this issue?

Never misses a bite.

Started feeding our dog Royal Canin as a puppy, but switched to another brand after a couple of years do to allergies and wanted to see if it was her food. The different brand did not reduce the allergies and caused our dog to gain lots of weight over a short time. We switch back to Royal Canin and continued the same exercise program and she lost all the weight in addition to a little extra. Our dog seems to be excited to be back to RC as she eats all her food without turning her nose away.
