    My rescue dog has lost 6.7 pounds in 10 months on this food. He weighed 29.7 when I got him. (That includes excercise and almost NO table food.) He even likes it as a treat. I use it when I'm teaching him new tricks. Nothing like a low cal treat. (Now I just need to lose 6.7 pounds!) :-)

    I would like to note right away that I received this product for free from the company, California Natural. First I will review the dogs reaction: Our furry friends consist of a 7 year old, 4lb Toy Poodle, and an almost 7 year old, 14lb Shih Tzu. When we received our free 5lb bag, my wife and I, decided to do a little experiment with our dogs. We placed a bowl of both their regular food and the new food (California Natural - Herring and Sweet Potato) in front of them and see which one they went for. Our Toy Poodle went for the new food while the Shih Tzu went for the old food which has soft chunks in it. After a bit I took away their current food to see if they would both eat the new food. Both started eating the new food. The Shih Tzu seemed to really chow down on the new food. I then took away the new food and placed one of the soft chunks alongside the California Natural food, both dogs ate the soft chunk before the California Natural. I then placed two pieces of the hard chunk of the old food and two of the California Natural food in front of them. Both went for the California Natural food before the other one, and then waited for more of the California Natural instead of eating the other. They did eventually eat the other since they usually clean up the food that drops on the floor. Overall, I was pleased with their reaction to the food. They love the soft chunks of their current food better, but chose the hard chunks of the California Natural over their current hard chunk. Now for the human reaction: When I first opened up the bag there was a blast of fishy scent which was a big off put to me. For science, I decided to put up with it to see what our furry friends preferred. All throughout testing the food with the dogs I would catch a strong whiff of the fishy smell again. I had smelled it before but couldn't place where (other than the obvious of fish.) My wife got home from work and her first comment was "WHAT is that smell!?" When I told her it was the new food we got to test out she told me that she wouldn't be able to put up with that smell, especially since it would smell up our bathroom since that is where our dogs stay while we are at work. I told her I couldn't exactly place the smell but had smelled it before. I held the bowl of the food up to her so she could get a better whiff of it and when she smelled it close up she told me it reminded her of the "Tropical Fish Food Flakes". After hearing that, it clicked, that is exactly where I remembered the smell from. Both of us agreed that we wouldn't be able to put up with the smell of fish food in the house, even though the dogs seemed to like it. In conclusion, I took away 3 stars for the off-putting smell that the food has. I'm sure that the Chicken and Rice or the Lamb and Rice wouldn't smell nearly as bad, and had we gotten one of those, might have been happy with the new food. However, the smell was just too much for us to deal with. When I review this again, it will be for one of our parents furry friends to see how they like it, maybe they won't mind the smell as much as we do.

      Comments about California Natural Low Fat Chicken Meal & Rice Dry Dog Food:

      I have no complaints about the product however I will say when the packing slip is signed as to what is included in the box it should contain what they checked. For awhile now the box included 2 free samples of Stella and Chewy chicken and beef. These were small samples and my dogs loved them and the last 2 out of 3 orders had checked that they were included but weren't there. I didn't call or anything because they are free add ons but what concerns me is that the packer checked and signed that they were in there. I definitely have concerns when someone checks and signs that something is included and isn't there. Are the packing slips pre checked and signed and just thrown in or do you really make sure the order is correct? I worked in shipping and receiving dept at work for 25yrs and never signed for something in a container unless I double checked it was correct.

      California Natural Dog Lamb & Rice Large Bite

      By NMaynard75

      Comments about California Natural Low Fat Chicken Meal & Rice Dry Dog Food:

      We have two fur-babies...a pit bull and a cocker spaniel and we transitioned both of them to the California Natural Dog Lamb & Rice Large Bites and they both loved it! They seemed to have no problems digesting this brand and Sadie-our cocker spaniels skin and coat seemed to look healthier. We are thrilled to have found something that is healthy for them both! Our pit bull seems to have food allergies so we have to be careful what we give her but with this formula she had no issues at all. I received this product courtesy of California Natural for free in exchange for my honest opinions and thoughts.

      My Yorkie guarded her California Natural All Day :)

      By Kellyg1120

      Comments about California Natural Low Fat Chicken Meal & Rice Dry Dog Food:

      When I first received my HUGE bag of food from California Naturals, I couldn't wait to do some taste testing with my Yorkshire Terrier, Chloe. Everytime a package arrives, my pup acts like a bomb sniffer and has to thoroughly inspect it. When I opened the box, she climbed all over the bag of food, and wouldn't leave me alone until I fed her some. I leave dry food out for her, and portion a small amount of wet food in her bowl twice a day. So I opened the Lamb & Rice Large Bite bag, and upon opening I was a little concerned about the size of the pieces because they are quite large for a small/medium size breed. So I did a little research to make sure the large pieces would digest properly, and poured some into her favorite dry food (at the time). I've seen Chloe go crazy for certain treats, but never for dog food like she did for this brand! After she are the food in her bowl, I walked towards the bag and I heard a loud snarl. She literally growled at me and was completely guarding the California Naturals bag, which she never does!! That's how I know she absolutely LOVED it, which makes me love it :) Not only does she love the Lamb & Rice flavor, the benefits I saw were incredible. We've always had problems with how her hair barely grows, but it has been growing in softer and thicker since she switched to this dog food. Also, because chewing large sized pieces of food helps clean dogs teeth, her breath was noticeably better. So since my dog loves this HUGE bag of dog food which is perfectly priced, and there are so many noticeable benefits, I would 100% recommend this brand and type of food for any pet owner of large and small dogs alike!
