Merrick Backcountry dog food review
This post is sponsored by Merrick. I am being compensated for testing and providing my honest opinion on Merrick’s Backcountry food. I only share information I feel is relevant to my readers.
I was contacted by Merrick a few weeks ago, to see if I wanted to try out their new Backcountry Raw infused dog food. Since I feed these guys a grain free diet already, this seemed like a great fit. So I agreed, and they sent me a nice variety of products for the dogs to try out.
I slowly integrated the kibble, and the canned food in with Torrey’s current food. She’s not a picky eater, but she seems to really like the Backcountry food. When I opened the first bag, she was right there ready and willing to try it out.
Both Roxy and Torrey where very interested when Al grabbed a few kibble from the bag.
The kibble are small, as are the freeze dried real raw meat pieces. This also makes them perfect for training treats.
The biggest thing for me with any food, is quality ingredients. I have never fed sub-standard dog food, it’s just not worth the risk. Looking at the ingredient list for Merrick Backcountry, is very impressive indeed. The first listed ingredient is deboned meat. The whole ingredient list is healthy, and high quality.
I have never purchased canned dog food before. I think Torrey is really wondering, “Why?” She has enjoyed a little bit of canned food every day, and to call Backcountry “dog” food seems almost a stretch. The first can I opened was chunks of chicken in a thick broth, and they have all been very similar to that.
Torrey has been the primary tester of the Merrick Backcountry, and is doing very well on it. I love that it is a grain free, high quality, meat based food. I believe that dogs need more of a carnivore, or raw diet, and Backcountry certainly fits that.
Torrey and I give Merrick Backcountry two thumbs, and two paws up for quality, and delicious taste.
