there are plenty of fun and dog friendly activities both you and your dog can enjoy. Spoiler alert, if you are a fur parent to large dog breeds you may find yourself trying one of these activities soon!
Merrick recently came out with new Chunky Can Recipes and we were very excited to try them out! Our dog, Kobi, just loves their Cowboy Cookout Can Recipe, which has a 5 star rating on DogFoodAdvisor.com, so we knew there was a good chance our picky eater might like these Chunky Can Recipes too.
If you're wondering, how "chunky" are these recipes? Well check out our photo - you can easily see the meat chunks! All four new recipes are 100% grain-free and feature deboned meat as the #1 ingredient. You can see some real carrots and potatoes in the recipe too.
We tried out all 4 Merrick Chunky Can Recipes: Big Texas Steak Tips Dinner, Carvers Delight Dinner, Colossal Chicken Dinner and Pappy's Pot Roast Dinner.

On the next day, we added Kobi's favorite Cowboy Cookout Can Recipe to the taste test to see if he would go for his old favorite or one of the new recipes. After the overall sniff and lick test, Kobi first happily chowed down Pappy's Pot Roast Dinner followed by the Colossal Chicken Dinner. Cowboy Cookout, Big Texas Steak Tips Dinner and Carvers Delight Dinner all tied for third place.
Kobi's picky palate was heartfully pleased with these recipes. We also feel rest assured with these recipes as they are made in the U.S. with no ingredients from China. They're also grain free and gluten free.

Dr. Linda Simon shares her insights to help you choose the best medium sized dogs.
