I have two older mixed breed terriers who quickly became fans of the Old Guard Ultra Premium chicken and brown rice diet. My older dog Isabel recently had major abdominal surgery and her appetite post-op was so-so on her previous diet. I offered the new kibble, and she started eating immediately! Our other dog Gooby can be fussy about his food. Since I started feeding him the diet, he now cleans his bowl regularly which has been a problem in the past. They have great hair coats and no GI upset with this diet. I am very particular about what I feed my dogs as I want to ensure they have the best nutrition available to them. This diet meets those needs with its excellent nutritional profile as well as its palatability. I would recommend this food to anyone who wants to ensure their dog receives a highly nutritious diet with high quality ingredients.

Zeke loves the Battle Biscuits! He gets Peanut Butter in the morning and Bacon when we're cooking dinner. He actually bugs me about it like clockwork every day.

I am really active with my dog and we go running every day so it was really important to get a high protein, high fat diet. I was impressed with the mix of protein from chicken, buffalo, egg, salmon and herring and my dog loves it.
