Great quality food

My 11 month old unneutered male Golden Retriever puppy Timber loves this food. Timber has regular bowel movements and is growing at a safe pace and not putting too much weight on his delicate joints.

We have tried a lot of different foods before deciding on Royal Canin and we are so happy that we did! Our pup was super picky but loves this food. We love how it is scientifically formulated to meet my pups needs! We know confidently that she is getting all the nutrients that she needs! She is on the puppy formula now but will be switching to adult in a few months and we know the adult will satisfy us just as much.

My English Cream Golden LOVES Royal Canin

A vet had suggested Fromm’s. He ate that for 12 months. He was consistently rejecting it. A new vet suggested I try switching to Royal Canin which he feeds his dog. The difference was shocking!! With Royal Canin he has gone back to eating everything with vigor. I cannot begin to guess why, but obviously my dog knows the difference. Thanks!!

The food is great!

I have a 10 month old golden retriever he has been on this food since I got him at 8weeks. I love it! He loves the taste of it, and I had to get him a slow feeder bowl. His coat is sooooo soft and shiney. I plan on keeping him on the golden food once he’s an adult!
Royal Canin response
He is adorable, thank you for sharing!

Thank you RoyalCanin

After research and research and changing foods couple of times I wonder why I didn’t choose RC in the first place? Thank you RC for making a specific breed food ^^ I have a GR gathering weekly and most of all members of this club give competition brands but I think they will change after my review and it’s the best~^^

Great Food!

We brought our girl home and she was pretty malnourished and had constant diarrhea. Her fur was so course that the veterinarian questioned if she was all golden retriever or if she had some thick undercoat from another breed. I switched her to this food and within 2 weeks her fur is softer, she's gained all of the weight she should have had on her and then some, and she loves this food. The kibbles are also perfect size to be able to use as training treats. We will definitely keep her on RC for the rest of her life.

Customer for life

We started our golden puppy on the Blue Buffalo large breed puppy food, which is what the breeder used. He is my first puppy so I didn’t know any better but there were too many bowel movements daily and poorly formed. After we switched to Royal Canin, the pup switched to a clock like regularity with well formed/healthy colored stool. His coat is amazing and he is growing well. He is now 12 months and we will he staying with stay with Royal Canin when we switch to adult food soon.

Glad to hear that your puppy has done so well!

Happy Puppy - Happy Owners

We bought this over two months ago and our dog loves it. Actually, it's hard to believe that any puppy wouldn't as they will eat anything and everything they can get their mouth into. The nutritional value of this dog food far surpasses that of any other puppy food for a Golden Retriever. The only other food source I would consider is raw but that is way too involved for us. We did a lot of researching prior to going with this product. Our last Golden was 14 yrs. old when he passed away.
