My picky dog eyeballed the box & is munching away!

By Kisses212

from Los Angeles, CA, United States

Comments about Merrick Pet Care Merrick Backcountry Raw Infused Grain-Free Dry Dog Food:

I wanted to switch up my dog's food a little and wanted to include more protein packed meals. Ever since the box of food came, she smelled it and wouldn't leave the bag alone. Once I opened it and poured her a bowl, she immediately started munching away! I love Merrick and I've been jumping around their brand for both my dogs! Just make sure to keep the food packed tightly and in the garage because it smells terrible. My dogs obviously don't mind it. Other than that, my dog's crazy for this recipe. Hope it helps with her fur and body as well!

Definitely not 38% raw

By RonnieS

from Louisville, KY

Comments about Merrick Pet Care Merrick Backcountry Raw Infused Grain-Free Dry Dog Food:

I'm on the 2nd bag of this food and there's very little raw infused in the bag compared to the 1st bag. I only have the 1st bag as comparison, but the 2nd bag definitely doesn't have 38% raw. I have the lot code, it's best by 7/28/2017 16027 DL2 37018 07:15. My dog loved the 1st bag, but he doesn't seem to like this 2nd bag as well so he must really love the raw infused pieces. I just purchased a 3rd bag and it's from a different batch, so we'll see. If it's no different than bag #2, we will switch to a different brand because it speaks to a lack of consistency and quality control.

My Lilith is a super ...

By KSanders95

from Gallitzin, PA, United States

Comments about Merrick Pet Care Merrick Backcountry Raw Infused Grain-Free Dry Dog Food:

My Lilith is a super picky eater I have tried many different quality dog foods with little success. She would eat the others.....sometimes. I decided to try this and she LOVES it!! She doesn't miss a meal and she licks the bowl clean!!! It's important for her to eat because she gets a supplement on her food and she eats with no problem now! So happy to have found something she really enjoys!!

Great food when the raw infused doesn't run out

By Decap22

from Florida, United States

Comments about Merrick Pet Care Merrick Backcountry Raw Infused Grain-Free Dry Dog Food:

I have been feeding my Chocolate Lab this food since it came out. She loves it when she eats it. The biggest problem I have is I have had at least 4 bags run out of the Raw Infused food. I would mix the bags when I got them to make sure it wasn't all at the top. The last 2 bags I have bought recently have had the entire bottom half of the bag with all kibble and no Raw Infused whatsoever. This is very frustrating and am thinking of switching to another Merrick recipie. If that doesn't work I may need to switch brands, which would be a shame because she has eaten Merrick her entire life. You need to have better quality control and make sure that these bags are filled up more evenly.

Very Disappointed

By Alison

from Austin, TX, United States

Verified Buyer

Comments about Merrick Pet Care Merrick Backcountry Raw Infused Grain-Free Dry Dog Food:

This is my second bag of this dog food. The first one was great, but in this bag there are only a handful of the Raw pieces. Seriously, I only found like 5 pieces (see picture), if there isn't enough for a couple of pieces in each bowl than what's the point? Considering how expensive it is I expected there to be better quality control. I don't want to buy another bag, because I don't know what I'm going to get. I'd like to return this one to the pet store because I feel so cheated, but I'm afraid they won't take it back and it will just be more hassle for nothing.

Merrick used to be great

By ML guy

from Moses Lake, WA, United States

Comments about Merrick Pet Care Merrick Backcountry Raw Infused Grain-Free Dry Dog Food:

I have fed my dogs Merrick grain free foods for a year and a half and recently, within the last 2 bags my dogs are never satisfied with any amount of food I feed them. We also recently got a kitten and bought Merrick grain free kitten food and again, he was never satisfied either. We swithced the kitten to a different food and he is actually satisfied. Very disappointed with whatever changes have been made. We will be moving to a different food brand after this bag is finished.

Great

By Audie1109

from Orlando, FL, United States

Comments about Merrick Pet Care Merrick Backcountry Raw Infused Grain-Free Dry Dog Food:

I have a Pitbull , red and blue nose . We have had him since he was a puppy . Pits have very sensitive stomachs and skin so trying to find him a food that agrees with his stomach and skin was challenging. That is until someone at the pet store suggested this brand to my husband and I . We have been buying this brand for 3 years now and we love it !. Our dog loves it too! . He does not even eat alot of the food and the bags last a little over a month and not to mention my dog is very healthy and strong .

Shepherd Loves it

By Katrina

from wisconsin

Comments about Merrick Pet Care Merrick Backcountry Raw Infused Grain-Free Dry Dog Food:

My german shepherd puppy went through so many different foods. 5 foods by the time he was 6 months. I finnally switches to Merrik Backcountry Puppy, and he actually enjoys being fed everynight. I used to fill his bowl and he might eat a little, and now he chows down! It was so hard before to get all the protein he needed in him, and i was paying so much money to buy all this frozen raw food and dried bits, but now it is so much easier. Every day i am complemented on how great he looks and how wonderful of a coat he has at only six months old! I cant thank Merrick enough!
