My two dogs (a terrier mix and an australian shepherd) were eating Kirkland before I went on a natural kick earlier this year and switched them to a natural brand that cost nearly 3 times more and was based on an ancestral diet concept.  Both dogs blimped up and became much more lethargic.  After discussing it with my vet and reviewing the labels/nutrition information with him, we switched back to Kirkland.  The dogs are happier, thinner and continue to have beautiful coats and teeth.  As with nearly every Kirkland brand I've tried, this one is a winner -- a good value and a good product both.

My dog Hates this food. She refuses to eat it unless she is absolutely starving. i mean we will give it to her in the morning and then at lunch time we go to give her lunch and its still there! She hadn't even touched it. My advice is Don't buy it. She hates it. I have a newfoundland and any other dog food she will eat... just not this one, its gross! it even looks gross. In my opinion it looks like burnt cheerios. I have seen that many people have the same problem. Especially if your dog is picky about what she/he eats.

A great food at a great price.

By 

from Voorhees, NJ

Comments about Kirkland Signature Dog Food:

This dog food is a great value- it is priced lower than many "garbage" brands, but contains high quality and healthy ingredients without any of the things you should never feed your dogs like corn and by-products. My dogs eat this food without hesitation and it does not cause any of the issues caused by other low quality foods such as tear stains, shedding, or poor coats.

Quality of Ingredients
While this food isn't at the absolute top in terms of ingredients, I'd say it is in the top 20%. It could be better, ( grain free, organic, etc), but it is free of the major things that you should avoid in a dog food- it contains no by-products, corn, dairy, or soy. The price is more in line with foods that contain many or all of those things, making this food a great value and a good choice for most dogs,

Flavor Selection
This food is available in several varieties- chicken and rice, lamb and rice, a healthy weight formula, and a puppy formula. My dogs showed no preference between the chicken and lamb varieties, they ate them both without hesitation.

Premium Dog Food for Store Brand Price

By 

from USA

Comments about Kirkland Signature Dog Food:

By reading the label on the Kirkland Adult Dog Food, you realize that you aren't buying just another bargain store brand kibble. The first ingredient is chicken followed by chicken meal then brown rice and pearled barley. Also added are fruits like apples and cranberries, veggies (potatoes, carrots and peas), vitamins and minerals. Protein is a fairly decent 26% (but some of that % might come from brewer's yeast so the number might be a bit deceiving if you think it's all from the chicken and the chicken by product)
The food is given 4 out of 5 stars on DogFoodAdvisor (enough of a recommendation for me to put the bag in the shopping cart and take it to the checkout).

I got the bag of food home and mixed a little with their old food. The dogs ate every kibble. Continued to incorporate the new food with the old on a slow introduction basis and finally had them on the new food within 2 weeks. They loved the Kirkland Adult Dog Food and their coats are shiny and healthy. I like the fact that the food isn't full of grain or grain by products. And, the price is certainly right.

Great Dog Food for A Great Price!

By 

from USA

Comments about Kirkland Signature Dog Food:

I love Kirkland brand for most of their products, their Dog food is not exception! I love Kirkland brand dog food and it is the only kind that I buy right now for my three little dogs. I like buying it in bulk because it seems to last longer since I have three dogs. It also saves me money and I look for that because I am on a budget, I feel that I am getting the best dog food on the market and I am also saving money. That is a major plus for me. I highly recommend Kirkland brand dog food to anyone, because of quality of ingredients and because of the great price.

Quality of Ingredients
The quality of ingredients in great! About the same as other more expensive dog foods. Kirkland brand is a brand you know you can always trust! I love Kirkland Brand.

Flavor Selection
There are only a few selections of flavor to choose from, but I just rotate each time I buy the dog food and my dogs are happy! I do wish there were a few more flavors to choose from, but I will continue to buy this dog food.

Maybe the worst dog food ever!

By 

from USA

Comments about Kirkland Signature Dog Food:

I only bought this because I was being cheap and needed to save some money. I should have just bought the usual good stuff, because this was a waste of money and I had to eventually throw about 90% of the bag. Even my friends wouldnt take it as a donation and I couldnt return it to the store. The first noticeable thing was the food smells horrible, so I smelled inside the bag and it smells like rotting milk. REALLY BAD! Aside from that my dog started throwing up and having diarrhea after the 2nd or 3rd time eating this food. She has never been sensitive to anything besides bananas! Well, went bag to my dog food and the symptoms stopped. Im sure my dog if very thankful, because she refused to eat this after 1 week and started to lose weight! I was getting really scared so I started feeding her more human food to make up for the Kirkland dog food she wasnt touching. Do not recommend this food. Stay Away!!!

Kirkland dog food

By 

from USA

Comments about Kirkland Signature Dog Food:

This is great dog food. We have fed this food to our dogs for over six years.

Quality of Ingredients
If you read the ingredients that are listed on the back of the dog food bad, you will see that it compares to the expensive brands of dog good. We have three dogs. Two of the dogs are German Shepherds. Our dogs like this food. We also buy the Kirkland canned food.

Flavor Selection
You can choose from lamb or chicken. Both are good for dogs digestive systems.

Rated as the best by independent testers

By 

from Morrisville, PA

Comments about Kirkland Signature Dog Food:

This is a high quality dog food at a very reasonable price. Doggie lovers seem to have the idea that if dog food isn't pricey or sold in specialty stores or organic or whatever is the new "in" thing people that the dog food is below par. WRONG! Independent labs in conjunction with veterinarians have rate Kirkland dog food as the highest rating. Above Science Diet, above Iams and all the rest The dog food also is accurate in its labeling. Considering that my oldest dog is over 15 and has eaten this all her life.....

Quality of Ingredients
The dog food has all the vitamins, nutrients and protein that dogs need for a healthy life. The best fact is that every bag is numbered by batch and that information is computer linked to your account when you purchase at Costco. When there was a one batch recall due to processing not bad food, everyone received phone calls, emails and letters about the food, your purchase dates with the batch numbers and the number of the questionable batch. There was also a toll free number with a real, English as their first language human available to answer your concerns.

Flavor Selection
I wish there were other favors. Having a picky poodle makes for challenges.

Meets the needs of my dogs.

By 

from USA

Comments about Kirkland Signature Dog Food:

we own a Alaskan Malamute and two French Brittany's. The dogs are active bird hunters and the dog food provides them with the energy required to be in the field all morning.
The Malamute requires a special that the dog food provides. He is not allowed to have a grain diet because of his breed, this dog food provides him that.
The dog food industry rates the food on a scale of 1-5. Kirkland is rated 4.5 on that scale.

Kirkland Signature food is great!

By 

from Brighton, CO

Comments about Kirkland Signature Dog Food:

My dogs love this food. It is full of the proper nutrients that all dogs need and apparently it tastes great to the dogs too. You can feel reassured reading the label that the first ingredient is not corn or some preservative. The dogs rush to the bowl when it's feeding time. The food also seems to keep the dogs digestive tract regular. I would highly recommend this food for any dog.

Quality of Ingredients
The ingredients are quality. The first ingredient is not corn - which is unusual for dog food and a very good thing. The food is filled with all the nutrients and vitamins that dogs need to lead happy, healthy lives.

Flavor Selection
There are only two flavors available at my Costco. I would like to see a few more varieties available. My dogs like the lamb flavor that we purchase, but it would be nice to see maybe a beef or chicken flavor. It would also be nice of the bag sizes were bigger. We feed two dogs and have to buy dog food more often than we would like to.

My dog gives this one two paws up!

By 

from USA

Comments about Kirkland Signature Dog Food:

Although I'm not my dog, I'm sure she would want me to rave about her food. Every night my springer spaniel wagges her tail and can't wait to have her yummy dog food! And when she final gets to enjoy it, the food never lasts for than five minutes! I buy the HUGE bags from Cosco and then dont have to worry about buying food for my little friend for at least 2 months! Really great food, for a really great price! I highly recommend at least giving it a shot!

Quality of Ingredients
It looks like they have pretty wholesome ingerdients!

Flavor Selection
As i said before, I am not a dog, but from what I have observed, my dog loves this food! Once in a while I switch up the flavors, and she never seems to mind!

Good food for the price

By 

from College Station, TX

Comments about Kirkland Signature Dog Food:

The food is very good for the price. There are a few brands that I would prefer to feed my dogs if I had money but for my financial limitations this is the best food that I can buy my dogs. If you look at the ingredients it is a much food than most of them on the market. My little dachshund is a picky eater and I just throw a little bit of broth on the kibble and he just gobbles it down.
