I was looking for the perfect dog food for my puppy, Fred, when I found Beneful. I had tried different brands of dog food, but they were never really the perfect fit. Beneful is a great product made from real food that is still in a modest price range. Although I would spend as much as I had to for dog food, I’m really glad that I don’t need to. I’m really happy that I found Beneful, and know that we will use it for life.
Fred is a pug mix, and the breed tends to be on the overweight side naturally so I try to keep his weight down. Because I was afraid of Fred becoming overweight, I wanted a food that would give my puppy the energy that he needed without having to feed him a lot of food. Even though the breed has a natural tendency to be on the chunky side, I feel that it is unhealthy for a dog to be overweight. Pugs also tend to be lazy and have a propensity to avoid exercise. I also live in a warmer climate, so walking the puppy outside can be dangerous during the summer months. I was really worried about keeping my little guy healthy, but I was determined.
When I first brought Fred home as a three month old puppy, he already had weight issues and needed to be on a diet from the start. At first we were on an Iam’s puppy food, but Fred just didn’t seem to be satisfied with it. He always seemed to want more, and still didn’t have the energy levels that I wanted him to have. He would have bursts of playful energy, but if he took a walk around the block he would be exhausted. Although I felt that the Iam’s food was nutritional, I also felt that it wasn’t the right fit for us.
We tried a Blue Buffalo dog food, but had the same issues. I then switched Fred to Purina’s Beneful dog food and everything changed. Fred seems satisfied with the amount of food that I give to him, and his energy levels are much higher that with Iam’s or Blue Buffalo. Fred has lost weight and is now at a healthy level. Even though he eats less Beneful than he did of other brands he has way more energy and is more excited to go play and exercise than he was in the past.
We are both very happy with Beneful. It is nutritious and made from great food, and we both love it. I enjoy Fred even more now that he is more playful, and we are both happy that we have found the perfect food for us in Beneful.
