Rated 4 out of 5 "Delivers on What it Promises"
Your SmartBlend Large Breed Puppy Formula was on sale one day, so my husband decided to try it for our 18-month-old rescue. She can be a finicky eater, so we were surprised at how much she loved this food. She's been eating it for 2 weeks and we've already seen many changes--her eyes are brighter, her digestion has improved, and we can personally attest that your claims of extra energy are absolutely true.
And we hate you for it.
Do you have any idea what it's like having a 120-lb Great Dane puppy with extra energy?? She's already like a bull in a china shop but, on your food, there's no stopping her. 2 walks a day and an hour's romp on the beach barely slow her down. She's still racing around the house like a lunatic for hours at a time.
I'm sorry, but we won't be purchasing this food in the future. Seriously--we're worn out and the cats are nervous wrecks. We're going back to the stuff that makes her a lazy dog that is often mistaken for a piece of furniture.

by BanjoBuddy Made the Switch and loving it
When we got our puppy at 8 weeks from his breeder, she had him on another brand you can only buy at a specialty pet shop. We bought it and kept him on it for one bag but knew we didn't want to be tied to a food we couldn't get at a normal store. Our previous dog was on special food and several times we ran out with no way to get more immediately! So we looked around and decided on Purina One for our new pup. He gobbles it down and is healthy and right on track! We'll definitely continue with the adult mix when he's 1!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Amy39 My Puppies are thriving!!!!
Thank you first of all for being a company that prides itself on not only paper testing but taste testing your foods for quality and health standards. One of my puppies was sick with diarhhea for a week, sending us to the vet with worry, where she was thoroughly checked out and our vet advised to change her food. I was feeding her Fromm Family puppy food (very expensive) and was informed by my vet that many dog food companies don't have the money to do thorough testings on their foods, and though they pass the standards on paper, they aren't necessarily great for our pets. After my puppy finished her round of vet dosed canned food, both my dogs went on Purina One Large Puppy. (Thank you for keeping your costs down on the food as well.) Both of them love it and are very healthy and thriving. They have lots of energy and just look very happy and healthy. My vet listed many options for food: Science Diet, Eukanuba, but when he mentioned that he knew the local county sheriffs K9's were on Purina One, I knew that was the one for us. So thank you for caring about the health of our puppies as much as we do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cora2013 Rasing ThecRed Nose
I started My 10 week old Red Nose on this product at 3weeks of age. It was on the Smart Blend product. It kept her healthy size and coat wise. She was 15 lbs at 8 weeks. I just recently was advised to put her on Blue Bufflalo by my pet trainer last week. I tried it for a week but noticed a decrease in her weight apperance, so today I decided to go purchase My Purina One Smartblend Large Breed and add it into her daily feeding schedule. Im goin to try to feed her 1 cup of Blue Buffalo for her 11 am feeding and 2 Cups of Purina for her 5 pm feeding and her soft can of Purina Pro at 10 pm. I shall do a follow up in three weeks. Thank you Purina for my 25 lb 10 week Female Red Nose.

I have a 6 month old St Bernard/ Bernese mix and I wanted a dog food for large breeds that wouldn't put me in the poor house, he currently eats 9 cups a day. I was happy to find Purina One for large breeds because the price was affordable and the first ingredient was chicken. My puppy loves it and he is healthy. His coat is shiny and he's very playful. Thank you for making good dog food that's affordable for large breeds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nicole13 Great Dog Food!
My 8 month old lab mix loves Purina One. When we adopted him from the Humane Society they had him on Purina One dog food already, so we decided to continue him on the same diet. Right now we give him large breed puppy formula and we have also bought the healthy puppy formula. The two are the same ingredients/mixture just bigger bites in the large breed. He doesn't mind either way. I would recommend this product to anyone who wants a quality dog food for a decent price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KayT My huskies were born and raised on Purina One .
My vet says my dogs are very healthy and have wonderful teeth. They love the large breed formula and still "wolf" it down at every feeding. They maintain a good weight, are happy and energetic with beautiful coats. Why try anything else?! This works!

Rated 4 out of 5 by DeeNH Good food
My 7 mt old pup was on blue buffalo cause *its the best* and like everyone else I wanna give him a quality food.. Being a coonhound shepherd mix he needs a good healthy diet.. i read reviews and made the choice.. We mixed the food slowly like i was advised and it took a week for him to get violently ill.. I thought we were gonna lose him.. Didn't think it was the food til I took him off and his condition improved.. He is now switching back to purina. The purina one smartblend is what my vet suggested and I'm done w the this is better than that.. Its a choice each pet parent needs to make and like formula for a baby it's ultimately the decision of who is eating it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by GSD1 Food that my picky puppy will eat!!
This Purina One Large Breed Puppy Formula is the best. I have a 4 month old German Shepherd puppy that wouldn't eat any of the expensive foods we tried. He was very under-weight and had no energy. Our vet, who sold Science Diet and Eukanuba in her clinic suggested we try Purina One because she's heard such great reviews about it. We switched by mixing the Purina 50-50 with the Royal Canin German Shepherd Formula 30 that he was eating and he would eat the Purina and leave the Royal Canin. So we started feeding just the Purina One. Within 1 day, we had a whole new puppy. He was so energetic and almost seemed hyper. For the first time he started acting like a puppy. One month later and he looks great. We just had our third visit to the vet and she couldn't believe how great he looked. Thanks Purina!!!

My Great Dane puppy loves this food. When we got her from the breeder she was on normal puppy chow. She was lethargic and had very loose stools. I gradually introduced this food and she has become an energetic lively dog with a better digestive system. We took her for her 12 week check today and she has gained 11 pounds in 3 weeks! (Normal for a Dane) I am very happy with this product!

I am a stickler when it comes to feeding my family, including my bullmastiff puppy! Purina One Large Breed Puppy Formula is the only food ive ever fed him and now he is 1 years old and in perfect health and has a beautiful build and coat! He loves it too! I will continue to keep him on this formula and will feed it to my future pups as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kingtoad Came back ,never should have left .
My 14 wk.old pup came from the breeder with your large breed puppy chow ,and she was fine and ate well even after a long trip. I was talked into Blue B. ,it was suppost to be so great .That was a bad change the first time she ate it she woke up screaming and had the runs all over everything ,it was a huge mop ,bucket mess . And she was sick for 3 days. I called the store and the girl told me this was common with Blue .So I changed back to your puppy chow and happy pup and happy me . thanks for a great product .

Rated 5 out of 5 by MiltonB My Rottweiler puppy loves it.
My previous dog was Boxweiler raised on Nutro Max. When I got my German Rottie I thought the same. One day I tried Purina One. He gave me as much love as he would with Nutro Ultra. He loves the dry food and yes gobbles it up. I can tell he likes this more than Nutro. He does not like it with water as with other foods. He is a very happy puppy. No changes with his coat from using the expensive food. Looking to try Beyond One when I take him off puppy food. Only concern is the need for glucosamine and chondroitin required for joints in large breeds. Otherwise love it, love it,and so does he.

i love the Purina One: large breed puppy formula... i have a new puppy (Lab/St.Bernard mix) and Karter (his name) loves it... i have had it recommended to me by breeders of Great Danes and Bernards as an excellent choice to the overly priced others... :)
Karter will also be using Purina One as an adult (actually i will be keeping him on the puppy until he is 18 mths, helps reduce the risk of dysplasia. :)

My 1 year old german shorthair not only loves the food but she has the healthiest coat I have ever seen. People just can't get over how soft and shiny she is. We receive compliments every time we go out. The vet also says she is one of the most healthiest dogs she sees.
