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.

Thank goodness I found this brand!

I have a 10 month old GSD that was born with Enzyme Pancreatic Insufficiency disease. After spending hundreds of dollars on different brands including Veterinary diets, I decided to try Royal Canine breed specific. It's very expensive. But, I was desperate. My GSD loves it, and it's really helped his digestive issues. He's going to always have problems. But, this is only brand of food that actually works well for us. I wish it was cheaper. But....

His coat shines, Vet- Exc. health, saves a rescue!

Nikon has been on this food since 6 weeks old, at which time Vet said she was worried as he was so underweight. We had to take him in every week for a weight check for the first 3 week until she saw that he had caught up to where he should be. at 6 months he is 62 pounds and so full of energy he needed a playmate. Kodak came to us at 8mo. and 52 pounds nothing but bone and skin with ear and skin infections. Vet treated the ears and said see me in 3 weeks of Royal Canin German Shepherd Puppy and I am sure the skin will be clear. It has been two weeks and on her back you can feel meat instead of bone and she does not scratch anywhere near as much plus she is begining to shine also. All the dogs I own the rest of my life will be on this food!!!

Great Product!!!

We have had our GS on this food since we brought him home and it has worked well for him. His digestive system seems to be in tip top shape and his coat is as silky as ever. I would recommend to anyone that owns a GS. We plan we switch to the adult version in the next few months.

Perfect for My Spoiled Pups

I’ve used this for several of my German Shepherds when they were pups, perfect size for their shark teeth, they never turned the food away. Always ate everything. Always shiny coat, no dandruff. We never experienced any skin issues either.
