Exclusive kibble shape designed specifically for a German Shepherd’s long, strong muzzle to encourage chewing

Helps protect a puppy’s developing immune system and natural defenses with an exclusive complex of antioxidants including vitamin E

Aids digestive health with highly digestible proteins and specific fibers to promote optimal stool quality

Royal Canin knows what makes your German Shepherd puppy magnificent is in the details. These highly intelligent and playful puppies have big nutritional needs as they develop into faithful watchdogs. They can benefit from the right large breed growth formula to provide immune system support and bone and joint health—as well as support digestive health—all of which is important for the breed during puppyhood.

Royal Canin German Shepherd dry puppy food is tailor-made nutrition created just for your pure breed puppy. Whether you call them a German Shepherd or an Alsatian, this exclusive breed-specific diet is uniquely formulated to your puppy, 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. An exclusive mix of antioxidants and vitamin E supports their developing immune system and keeps their body growing strong. Highly digestible proteins and specific fibers maintain digestive health since this breed has a tendency to have poor stool quality. And glucosamine and chondroitin support healthy bones and joints as your puppy grows to be a big dog. Once your German Shepherd puppy is over 15 months old, transition them to Royal Canin German Shepherd Adult dog food for precise nutrition into their adult years.

Started my dog when he was 10weeks only food I found that doesn't upset his stomach. Now 18 months and on adult German Shepherd.

So far so good. Our GSD is 6 months and it took a lot of trial and error before finding the right food for him. This one seems to work best.

Healthy Product

My Pups and Kittys love their food. They especially like it when we occasionally mix with milk.

Glad we switched!

We were huge Blue Buffalo fans. Our vet recommended Royal Canin and we were skeptical to switch. After researching and reading reviews, we decided to try a bag... and that one bag was all it took. There were no issues with switching and our dog has more energy and cleaner poops!

Excellent nutritional balance!

I have 2 German Shepherds I’ve raised solely on Royal Canin since they were puppies. The nutritional balance provided has enabled them to grow to full and healthy adults. Shiny coats, healthy teeth and fully energetic! I’ve been so satisfied with their health, that I’ve continued feeding them the Adult German Shepherd food when they turned 15 months. Fully satisfied customer and dogs!

Hands down hit all the nutritional importance.

Breeder told it was best for puppy. For bone growth and hair. Wow what a difference.
