After a miserably long search for a food that Zeus (our chihuahua-miniature pinscher cross) would digest, we have finally discovered Bosch Soft. In all honesty, I don't believe in mixing pure food with dry food. My other five, all chihuahuas, eat Mac's wet food.
With Zeus things unfortunately weren't so easy. With every wet food he had slimy or soft stool. We tried loads of high quality brands: Mac's, Lukullus, Terra Canis, Herrmann's, as well as cans with only meat that could then be mixed with vegetables, but absolutely nothing changed. In the search for a suitable dry food, I came across Bosch Soft. We bought a 2.5kg bag and, to our great surprise, Zeus had a solid stool. We are so happy to finally have found the right food that he can digest. Our little muscleman finally has soft smooth fur, no wind, and no more diarrhoea. A top product for us!
Initially I was sceptical, because our dog had always refused to eat Bosch food of any variety. One of the Boxers tried the Bosch Chicken & Banana and ate the lot, nothing was left in his bowl. I bought the food again and we will continue to do so. We have found our food :) we really recommend it...
Our Bernese Mountain Dog loves this food and can't get enough of it. We were forced to switch immediately to this food and the change happened without any of the usual problems such as diarrhoea etc. Because the food smells stronger, we were expecting unpleasant smells from our dog, but we were wrong! We will be buying this food from now on
I like the concept of this food. My fussy Spinone eats every bit. There are 3 dry foods he'll eat, Markus Muhle, Purizon and this. Purizon is tiny, like bigger cat kibble. Bosch Soft is bigger so he can get every bit without leaving a trail on the floor. I like the fact it has a more unusual fruit/veg source, banana. He really seems to enjoy it, it agrees with his tummy. Its quite pricey for the amount you get in the smaller bag, but we don't use loads and it means its fresher.
I carry a bag of these with me and use them as treats. My own and everyone elses dogs gather round when I get my bag out. The odour tempts even fussy dogs and I have a loyal fan club on walks. Excellent product.
All three dogs eat this really well. The Shelties' fur is very good, all three are in perfect condition, even with lots of moving around with the bike and the horse. The kibble is not entirely soft, so the dogs still have to bite it, but it's not so hard that they can just gobble it down.
My dog is EXTREMELY fussy, alway has been. I am very happy that she likes this food and eats it well. I find the food doesn't smell even 20% as bad as Acana, Purizon-Fish or Nature-Pure. I'm happy that Bosch finally has a grain-free food!
My pug is allergic, very fussy with food and has teeth problems. It is not easy to find a food that he will digest, enjoy and can chew. Bosch Soft (Chicken & Banana) is THE food that he audibly enjoys eating. We don't need treats anymore, food is enough. I have taken one star away because the food smells "sour" to my human nose. However, the pug would definitely give it 5 stars!
Tried this just to see very fussy gsd loves it and old pug will have a nibble to going to try the other flavours in the soft range to see if these are as big a hit also good price much cheaper than the aatu I normally buy.
I had a 1kg trial bag from the Advent Calendar in my December order. I already fed my dog a different Bosch food but I was impressed by this one - as was my dog! She eats it really well and it smells pleasant. She also had no problems with digesting it. I imagine only a "semi-moist" food would have a softer consistency. But the main thing is it tastes good. :)
Both of mine (Collie and Greek-mix) love this food. They do not eat it as a main meal but as treats or an evening snack, because they cannot be fed such an incredibly high amount of protein. But as a change from normal food and as a special treat it is great - if they could they would eat it every day. Once the bag is open the food smells a bit, so I always make sure the bag is well closed.
...I've only recently been feeding this food, but my super fussy, gluten-intolerant Boxer has voluntarily enjoyed this food as a snack between meals and has eats it without difficulty instead of the old dry food mixed with wet, even though he will leave sausage sandwiches and only likes 3 kinds of treats. Fur and stool look good so far and there is nothing to complain about. I don't recommend the smell as it's particularly unpleasant, but I'm used to fish! ;-D
