Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ingredients My dogs all love this recipe! The protein content cannot compare to any other food! The freeze dried pieces add flavor and nutrients to the food that most food don't have!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but quality has been slipping I have been feeding my dogs this recipe for years and they love it! Would be five stars but my only complaint is over the last five months, I have purchased two 22 pound bags of the Backcountry game bird recipe that contain absolutely zero freeze dried raw pieces. Zero, not even any freeze dried crumbs. One bag I purchased from Petco, the other bag from chewy. Is this is the beginning of a disappointing trend of decreasing quality and consistency? I really don't want to change their food but if this keeps up...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from False Advertising I purchased a 4 lb bag to see if my pup would like this food. There were exactly 4 pieces of the raw component in the entire bag. I purchased this product because we had previously purchased a bag of the raw food that can be added to dry kibble and she really liked it. This product carries a premium price, I expect to get what the package states it contains. Unfortunately they seem to have quality control issues across the board. I have purchased numerous cans of wet dog food that are 1-2 ounces shy of their stated weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lilly loves it! Lilly, our 7 year old Sheltie, has been on Merrick since the day we picked her up at the breeder. She has had several different flavors and enjoys them all. She really LOVES the "tasty morsels" in the backcountry. Thank you for making the best food on the market!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our dogs love it! We got Merrick a while ago, and our dogs really like it. Our pug is a picky eater, and would even turn his nose up at some of the Merrick raw formulas, but he loves the game bird recipe! Eats it right away with no fight. Also keeps him healthy. Since switching him to Merrick we have had no health issues. Thank you Merrick!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Where is the raw? I have an Aussie-Mix and a very picky eater, so when I purchased her first bag of Merrick she loved it. The down side is the last 2 bags lacked the percentage of raw kibble and that is frustrating considering being a higher end brand? Also, I have read comments about Purina buying out Merrick and that concerns me as well. I may purchase the grain free without raw since paying extra for nothing really. Sounds like I am not alone regarding these issues. Please make this right for your furry customers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LUCKYS SAYS YUMMMM! We have been purchasing this bag for over a year and my dog absolutely loves it. His favorite part of the food is of course the wet food we mix in to the dry. #ALLMERRICKDOG

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Both my Kitten and Cat eat it. They both love it! I recently purchased this Backcountry dry food so my both my cat and kitten can have dry food to go with their Merrick wet food. They both love it and it's good for both of them. Last and Kittens need protein in their diets and Merrick is all I feed them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Game Changer! I have a dog who's been struggling with GI issues for 6 months now. I thought I had exhausted every option but she just didn't want to eat anything! Then one day I tried this recipe and she chows it down like she never has before. It makes me so happy to see my dog happily eating again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Brand! My German Shephard has been on this food since he was a pup. He's 1.5 years old now and is still loving it! Healthy as can be. Loves to eat the chewy raw infused meat in the food first, but slams the rest back after that...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Dissapointed.. I just got a dog.. after not having any for 2 years. I used to feed Merrick.. and bought a bag to give to my new pup. Came home and did some research after a friend told me that the horrible Purina company owns Merrick now.. how sad and shocking that a company know for excellent standards would associate themselves with the bottom of the barrel Purina. Beneful.. which they own.. is sickening and killing dogs.. yet they refuse to pull it off shelves.. and you want to be lumped with them?? Seriously?? I am so happy my pup only ate one meal of your backcountry food.. back it went due to the fact that I will not trust a company that is affiliated with a greedy one and does not care about our furbabies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Whippet Gives it 5 Stars! Cooper has been eating grain free food since he was 10 weeks old and has never been enthusiastic about meal time. When I fed him he'd sniff the bowl and walk away. After trying several different foods, I thought I'd give Merrick a try. From the very first time I gave him Merrick grain free game bird recipe he runs to the bowl and doesn't leave until the bowl is licked clean. We are very happy that Cooper loves mealtime!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Definitely not 38% raw 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great food when the raw infused doesn't run out 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shepherd Loves it 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Updated review Last time I posted, I was disappointed in the amount of raw bits in the bag. I decided to give it another go after customer support convinced me I had a bad bag. Boy am I glad I listened! I feed my 90lb golden retriever 2cups per day, and each feeding has at least a dozen raw bits in it. I even mixed the bag well thinking they just all rose to the top. Radar loves this food, and I love that his coat looks great and he has no skin problems. I'm a customer for life!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Saddly Disappointed!!!!! Shame on your Merrick Pet Care!!!! Your new Backcountry food has been the BIGGEST disappointment I've had in something my Teacup Yorkie LOVED as a sample!!!!!! When I purchased a bag it was COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FROM THAT SAMPLE BAG!!!!!! Merrick WHAT HAPPENED????? Talk about FALSE ADVERTISING!!!!! There were BARELY ANY CUBES OF THE FREEZE DRIED RAW FOOD????????? How could you take such advantage of faithful supporters??????? I'm going to go on EVERY website on the internet and share my disappointment and shock at how the produce didn't live up to the sample!!!!! Many other pet owners cautioned me that due to the merger with Nestle's the quality of your produce would diminish. I didn't believe them after reading the statement of your owner on the Merrick page. Clearly he didn't tell the truth!!!!!!!! You took my money and DIDN'T DELIVER!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog loves it! I was already feeding Merrick Grain Free recipes with added weekly raw before Backcountry came out. My boy still gets a couple raw meals a month (mostly bones to help with his teeth) but I love not having to handle raw meat so much! Win (my dog) also loves this food. He loves food in general but anyone can tell he loves Backcountry the most.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes Rufus' Mouth Water I started feeding this about two weeks ago and our dog loves it! He picks out the freeze dried bits first, apparently they are scrumptious. Though he's been eating Merrick Grain Free Duck since he was about a year old he's never licked the bowl and asked for seconds. Now...he'd eat the whole bag if we'd let him. This will be his food going forward. Thanks Merrick!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 4 Paws Up My rescue pup Ella LOVES the new BackCountry line! She ate it all up the first time I poured it into her bowl (which is saying a LOT since she's a picky eater). I've been mixing in freeze dried pieces into her kibble for a year now, and was so excited that Merrick finally introduced a line with them already in there. Those little bites are the first thing Ella eats when I set the bowl down. She give this new line 4 paws up! I love that the first ingredient is real meat, it's available at Petco, and that Merrick gives back to shelter dogs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dogs love it.... We bought this about 3 weeks ago and our 3 cavalier king Charles spaniels love it. They are very picky eaters and they chow this food down. We have always used Merrick food and are so happy about this new food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another winner! Lily has been on Merrick for over 3 years now. She was on the Classic Chicken and Green Pea for most of those 3 years. When we heard about the new Backcountry formula, we wanted to give it a try. Lily loves freeze dried treats and I felt that the inclusion of freeze dried meat would be a great addition to her plain kibble. We tried out the small bag to see if she would like it. She loves this recipe. She sees me go to the bag and rushes over to her bowl. She also likes to pick out and eat all the freeze dried bits first, which I find funny. Her coat looks great, her energy is high, and at her last vet visit, they told me to keep doing whatever I was doing as she was a very healthy dog. I could easily save money by giving her something different, but I would rather spend the extra money and give her a better quality food. If you are looking for a great food for you pet, try out Merrick.
