Backcountry Grain Free Dog Food from Merrick

"I'm going to try Backcountry!"

We love grain free dog food and it's also no secret we're very fond of Merrick. This year Merrick came out with a new grain free dog food called Backcountry. Merrick calls it the ultimate all natural, grain free, high protein ancestral diet. The Dry Line has protein rich kibble, freeze-dried real meat pieces and comes in 4 recipes:

Backcountry's a clear winner!

Our dog Kobi tested and LOVED the Game Bird Recipe. When we give Kobi new dog food to test, we always give him a bowl of his normal kibble and the new kibble to see how he likes it in comparison. Typically on the first try, he'll eat a bit of each dog food. On the next few tries, we'll see which one he really gravitates to.

With the Merrick Game Bird Recipe it was hands down a winner on the first try! Kobi ate a little of each and then completely ate all of the Game Bird Recipe. I think Kobi especially liked the extra freeze-dried meat. Kobi also had no bad side effects from trying this new grain free dog food.

  2. We are huge Merrick fans too since we started working with them a year ago. We have never been grain free as none of us have special dietary needs, but we switched to BackCountry after we got our sample box. We love it and the raw infused pieces are so yummy! A dog needs good food to stay fit!
