One of our original 5 star rated dog foods, Australian brand Stay Loyal has stood the test of time. They have one of the most loyal followings of all our pet foods, and for good reason. Find out why in our Stay Loyal dog food review.

Stay Loyal dog food review

What the marketing says

Stay Loyal are proud to be Australian Owned, Grown, and Made. They state their dog foods are meat-based, with no grains, boosting energy and muscle tone with up to 32% protein.

Robert and David, the owners of Stay Loyal, have shown to be extremely dedicated and put in a great deal of effort to both their products and the relationship with their customers.

Stay Loyal Dog Food Australia

They offer a range of formulas, including a large breed puppy formula, and treats to promote natural joint health. For the purpose of our Stay Loyal dog food review we’ll take an in-depth look at the ingredients of the Chicken, Lamb, and Fish formula…

What the labelling really says

Firstly, the food boasts a very respectable 32% (min) protein and 18% (min) fat, which makes it much lower in carbohydrates compared to the majority of dog foods available. We estimate around 32% carbs, possibly less, and that’s very good.

The main ingredients are the top two, a combination of chicken meal and lamb meal, followed by chicken fat to make up the majority of the food. This ensures your dog is getting easily digestible protein from meat, not cheaper alternatives like peas which you find in competitor brands. True to what the marketing states, this will boost the energy level of your dog and help them build and retain muscle mass. Meat proteins are vital for a dog.

Further down the ingredients we find fish meal and marine fish oil as a rich source of omega-3 to support your dog’s well being, immunity, skin, and coat.

After chicken fat we find a combination of potato, tapioca, peas and beans, all used in a nice moderation. The food is rounded off with fruits, veggies, and turmeric which has shown to have a number of excellent health benefits and a known anti-carcinogenic.

It’s nice to see Stay Loyal dog food is preserved naturally rather than using cheap chemicals like you find in many supermarket foods (simply listed as ambiguous “antioxidants” or “preservatives”). It really is a nice, well-rounded formula, and grain free to boot.

If you’re not convinced already, the ingredients are all Australian grown produce.

This is a great dry dog food. Recommended!

Where to buy Stay Loyal dog food

Stay Loyal dog food is only available directly from their website. You can order a one off bag, or set up a regular delivery. If you’re worried about buying a big bag and finding your dog won’t eat it, they also offer samples.

Some insightful viewing

The following video by Robert from Stay Loyal covers some excellent points on what to look for in dry dog food in general, with the excellent and resounding quote – “The cost of cheap dog food is more than what you pay for the food – your dog will not be as healthy, and it will have a lesser quality of life”. This is very true, and feeding your dog a better diet will lead to a happier, healthier dog 👍

Great food that our 2 yr old Labradoodle enjoys. We feed him on dry food only, with a mixture of Stay Loyal and Taste of The Wild. Previously fed with Advance but he would at times still have loose stools whereas since making the change to Stay Loyal there has been no issue. We purchase Stay Loyal due to the fact it’s Australian made, highly quality and reasonably priced.

This food is fantastic. We have a Greyhound who is quite fussy about what she eats. Any dry food she was offered would be nibbled at, and usually left. We always ended up having to remove the half eaten bowl before our less fussy Labrador (lets face it they will eat anything) hopped in and got too fat. We have tried the premium foods, and have been feeding Black Hawk which seemed the one she was happiest with, and at least that was Australian made. Through accidentally clicking something in Facebook one day I came across Stay Loyal – Australian Made AND Owned, and more important they offered a guarantee – nothing to lose, if she didn’t like it we could be refunded the price of the bag and we could feed it to our lab to finish it up. Our Greyhound now comes running when she hears the food come out, and wolfs the whole lot at one sitting (the Lab loves it too). Only need to feed a small amount, our lab gets under 2 cups a day and the Grey 2 cups. Haven’t noticed massive condition changes with the exception that our “bald tummied” grey is actually growing some fur on her bald tummy and thighs, but I have always fed them high quality foods – this is comparable price-wise and a VERY fussy dog loves it! The company is very responsive to questions or feedback as well. Try it – you have nothing to lose, and I doubt you’ll be using the money back offer!

About three months ago I changed to Stay Loyal from another high quality dry food when the old company changed hands and altered the recipe. I have not been disappointed – my dogs LOVE Stay Loyal. While neither of them had allergies or skin conditions; their coats have improved, their poop is firmer and smaller and their overall health is excellent. This is great food with great ingredients and is Aussie made – couldn’t ask for more. I think that while this is a more expensive food; you certainly pay for what you get and this food is value for money in comparison to other high quality brands. Love the auto delivery – set and forget.

I’ve been using Stay Loyal Chicken, Lamb & Fish Grain Free for about 3 months for my rescue 3 dogs. We’ve always fed them grain free but a store bought cheaper brand plus added meat, oils & vege. I’m also a dog groomer & they would have a hydrobath every 3-4 weeks. The two little terriers would always smell terribly after 2 weeks, one particularly had smelly ears (not a yeast infection). The kelpie puppy had a lot of dander from the day we adopted him. Since changing to Stay Loyal, they hardly smell at all, the dander has gone, their breath is better and their stools are healthier. I would definitely recommend.

After much research I ordered a bag of Stay Loyal and 6 years later I continue to feed Stay Loyal exclusively. I have 3 dogs that look the picture of health and I have never experienced any skin or health issues. My vet has commented on their health numerous times and has enquired about their diet. My dogs are healthy and happy and always enjoy their food. I am very grateful to the team at Stay Loyal, I have a standing order delivered monthly and in 6 years have never had an issue. I am very pleased to have the opportunity to write this review for people I am very happy to be associated with. Great Job & a great product guys!! Thankyou.

We have had our 4 year old Border Collie Cross on Stay Loyal for almost 3 years. Until we found Stay Loyal she had digestion problems, skin problems and diarrhoea. Eventually a vet diagnosed that she needed a grain free diet. We tried a couple of different brands before researching and finding Stay Loyal. Since Molly has started on Stay Loyal we have been so happy. Her stomach and skin problems are things on the past. People now comment in how shiny her coat is. She is happy and healthy, thanks to Stay Loyal. It is delivered straight to the door so no hefty bags to shop for. I could not recommend it highly enough.

My two Japanese Spitz have been on Stay Loyal for about 4 years now. My girl was a very fussy eater and rejected a lot of other ‘top shelf’, high rating brands (NOT supermarket brands!), but she loves Stay Loyal and I love it too for a few reasons. I think it’s essential to support Australian companies, especially those that produce and market (in Australia) a superior product, and Stay Loyal is just that .. a small Australian company that does produce a superior product in Australia. I love that it is economical and delivered almost to my door and I get reminders that another delivery is on its way soon (and I can alter the delivery date if I need to). I have recommended Stay Loyal to a number of my friends and their fur babies have loved the product too. One friends was extremely impressed with the improved condition of her Frenchie overall when she changed to Stay Loyal. My dogs are healthy and happy on Stay Loyal and I’m extremely happy with it.

Fabulous product. We use this for our shnoodles( 3 year old and puppy 6 months), It’s an all Australian grain free product & we were amazed that after using this for our older dog for a few years, it was also suitable for our puppy as an all stage food, They devour both varieties which we alternate every month. StayLoyal keeps our dogs healthy & happy & we have found the company helpful & exceptional.

Hi Mark,
What is a Shnoodle??
Is dog a medium/large breed pup?? if yes best to feed Stay Loyal Large Breed Puppy formula for the puppy growing bones/joints etc so bones don’t grow too quickly causing Osteoarthritis when he/she is a adult.

My One year old, Kelpie/Malinois is absolutely thriving on this food. He’s been on it for about four months now, and he loves it. Cleans his bowl every time. We follow the feeding instructions featured on the Stay Loyal website, by adding bones and a fast day. It’s a bit more expensive than some others, but only a bit and it’s well worth it. In addition customer support and service is first rate, and Robert often responds personally. But in addition you’ll get regular email updates and bits of advice. Highly recommended by me.

We have an aged silky cross that was starting to get milky, watery eyes. She was generally slowing down and showing her age.
We also have a little rescue (another silky cross) much younger that continually licks and scratches. We purchased Stay Loyal hoping it would help her. It has, but the real change has been with our older dog.
Her eyes have cleared completely and she’s bouncing around like a dog half her age.
We can’t believe the difference, and couldn’t be happier with this great Australian product.

I have 2 Miniature Schnauzer pups and before we brought them home, I did a lot of research on which pet food to buy. I had a Westie for 14 years and he was only fed store bought tinned and dry food. For our pups, I wanted to feed them food which was full of nutrients and not fillers. I was shocked at what can be put in pet food and still be labelled food! When I compared even the premium brands, Stay Loyal stood out, by far the best! Not only that, they are the only premium Australian brand. I would a 1000 x more want to support an Australian company than an overseas one. It is not only the food that is outstanding, I receive emails with tips on how to look after my dogs. I have also emailed them with questions, and receive an answer back with very helpful advice. I have recommended Stay Loyal to others and gladly do so. They really are the best around!

I have a beautiful 9 year old GSD and have been feeding him Stay Loyal since late 2012, very soon after Robert and David started Stay Loyal production, about 7 years. I have never regretted my decusion. My Syd loves Stay Loyal and it has certainly eased his irritating, dry skin condition. I am thrilled with Syd’s health and weight during his senior years and put it down to his healthy diet, of which Stay Loyal is a major part.

Would love to know how this ranks higher than Pet Food Australia when the ingredient list is similar, but lacking in innovative supplements and overall meat content… dodgy dodgy, looks like you’re being bought out PFR’s… disappointing and blatantly obvious #sellouts

I was looking at The balanced canine sydney, facebook page & Stay Loyal has 80% meat in their foods,
that has to be the most meat in any kibble, that is the meat & offal content of Frontier as well.

Stay Loyal sure is good value , that facebook page is a great read, i love it

Have you been using it for a while Caroline? I’m wondering if the kibble size changed at some point or I’m just remembering it incorrectly. A period went by where I did not buy any and I could have sworn it used to be on the larger side much like Ivory Coat, but now it’s somewhat smaller.

I was just looking up Potassium Chloride, & how dangerous it is,
I feed Stay Loyal & found it in their ingredient list, Taste of the Wild use Potassium Iodide instead.
Which formula would be best, I use to feed Frontier Pets but the company has made the food balls
bigger & harder , even when soaked, my dogs gagged & spit it out.
I loved Frontier Pets FIRST PORK formula, now they have changed it – not good for my dogs.

Do your dogs like soup? What I do with Rusty and Frontier is I take 4 balls, put them in a freezer bag and I smash them up, they smash real easy and take on the water almost immediately upon entering. There is no other freeze dried currently available for Rusty so I have to go the extra mile to make the food palatable for him.

He left the balls in his bowl pretty much he picked one up it was too big for him, he had no idea what to do with it gave up and left it.

What do you think about Stay Loyal & Potassium Chloride
when others use Potassium Iodide, do you think it’s a small amount & OK.

I’m finding inconclusive data I’ll get back to you on that, I’m not currently at home, but one thing I’ll say is that small amounts build up over time, if your rotating the diet with different brands this is unlikely to ever cause harm.

Hi Caroline,
if you can feed Freeze Dried Air Dried before feeding any Kibbles, have you contacted Frontier Pets & spoken with the lady, she does private emails & tell her how you’re un happy & its become too hard & your dog chokes, but I’d be soaking in warm water longer for about 60mins & see how it goes cut them in 1/4 or 1/2, I’d like the bigger balls so my boy chews them, maybe she has made them bigger for the bigger dogs?? & maybe she can make a smaller dog size?? you’d have to ask cause Frontier Pets is new there’d be teething problems……
Aee you on Face Book? go onto “Rodney Habib” F/B page, https://www.facebook.com/rodneyhabib & scroll down & find “The Truth About Pet Cancer” video’s look for episode 2 then watch episode 3 you wont be feeding kibble are seeing how its made the Australian or American dry kibble its is that processed anything good they put in it gets the life cooked out of it at very high tempetures to kill all the bad germs from the rotting meats… Think about it why are all kibble teh same brown poo colour?? chicken, Potatoes & peas & sweet Potatoes should be lighter a cream colour kibble not dark brown these kibbles are all yuky brown in colour even Frontier Pets food is nice, light & more nature then kibble, Have you looked at Dr Bruce Syme’s new Air Dried “Balanced Life” formula’s, it’s sold at “My Pet Warehouse” you add water to his food BUT it has Green & Red Lentils my boy gets bad diarrhea from Lentils & chickpeas, http://www.vetsallnatural.com.au/balanced-life/

If you want to feed a dry kibble make sure you rotate & dont feed the same brand 24/7,
I like “Canidae” Pure Formula’s & their All Life Stages formula’s, Patch has done really well on Canidae’s Pure Meadow Senior & Pure Wild Boar,he does really well on Pork, My Pet Warehouse has the new Canidae Pure Wild, it was on speical over the weekend 20% off, Google “Clean Label Project” they tested all the popular selling American dry wet & treats & Canidae did REALLY well for Toxins & Contaminates, TOTW didn’t do good, their Pacific Stream Smoked Salmon & High Prairie formula’s both tested very high in Toxins & Contaminates probably why Patch was vomiting when he was eating the TOTW Smoked Salmon, he doesn’t vomit after he eats the TOTW Sierra Mountain Roasted Lamb formula & it’s his favorite but lately it hasnt been he’s been picking his Hills Sensitive Skin Pork meal egg rice & corn kibble, Yes I know Hills but I can’t be too choosey with his IBD 🙁

I’m looking for another new kibble to add to my rotation I don’t like feeding the TOTW no more not after the CLP test results for toxins metals & contaminates, but cause Patch has IBD It’s sooo hard after watching Rodney Habib’s Episode 2 Video Saturday then Sunday Watching Episode 3 I’ve beed trying to feed him wet tin or cooked meals, I’d love to have him on freshly home made raw. Pet Barn have the new Prime SKD Crocodile meaty bones you get 2 for only $8.99 they look beautiful fresh look like meaty chicken legs with no fatty skin…I’m going to get him a twin pack for his birthday in November, I showed him these raw Crocodile meaty bones 2 months ago at Pet Barn, so now every Saturday when we go to Pet Barn to see if there’s any new foods Patch pulls & pulls me to the fridge section at Pet Barn & he remembers those fresh Crocodile meaty bones, unbelieveable, as I’m walking around Pet Barn saying I dont know what to feed you Patch he’s pulling me telling me MUM I want these I want Raw….When I move in 1 months time I’m trying a home made raw diet again, but this time not adding the enzymes it digested the raw too quick, probably why he was regurgatating water back up into his mouth 20mins after eating the raw & no probiotics, they make him feel sick..
The makers of Advance & Optimum have come out with a whole new “Nutro” Natural Choice line with 4 new different dry foods their old Normal formulas, LID, Grainfree & Wild Frontier range it’s sold at Pet Circle online store https://www.nutro.com.au/natural-dog-food/
We’ve got alot of new foods coming out in Australia.. Watch Rodney’s free video’s when you have some time make a cuppa & sit back & have a heart attack its un believable & vets know all this information & do nothing Vets should be telling us pet owners about over vaccinating, 1 Vaccination last 7 yrs these poor dogs dont need to be vaccinated every 1 or 3 yrs Im so glad I have stopped giving Patch his vacciantion he kept having a bad IBD flare well thats what the vet said but more like he was reaction from the vaccinations, the Vaccination part will blow you away by Dr John Robb. I think its episode 3 about the Vacccination they have crambed everything in for free so you learn, you can buy all 5 Episodes, I’m thinking of buying all 5 episodes cause there’s how to make your own natural Flea Tick Heart Worm natural prevention treatments that aren’t poison, Im so glad I dont Worm, flea or heartworm Patch it all made him very ill & his new vet is more of an Holistic vet & she told me dont bother, he’s an indoor dog & heartworm hasnt been seen in my area for over 28yrs now so I dont bother & he doesnt seem to get fleas or worms either..

Hi Caroline, i think what you have been reading about Potassium Chloride is if your dog ingests a lot of it at once. Potassium is an essential mineral that needs to be in any living creatures system in the right amount. Too little and you get health problems that can lead to death if it gets too low. Too much and again death. You can buy it in the form of a supplement from the chemist if you or your dog is low in potassium. The product is called “Slow K” and its in 500mg tablets of Potassium Chloride. So to make it perfectly clear the amount that is used in our food is perfectly safe and essential to have in the food.Hope that all makes sense now.

Oh OK, the hair would be from the animals they’re using, it was happening with Orijen or Acana dog foods & people were whinging on DFA, but apparently it’s normal, I looked at Sunday Pets & the fat was a bit too high over 40% way too high for my Patch, we need more Pet food companies to start making these freeze Dried pet foods…. there’s a market out there for freeze dried & we need a lower fat freeze dried as well,it would take off for the sick ones & dogs that have never eaten a raw diet & arejust starting ..
I was reading Frontier Pets email & she said she has just under 100,000 customer feeding her Frontier pets & its just come out about 1 yr ago & I noticed Sunday Pets Raw Chow is always sold out on Pet Circle so the demand is there…
Come on “Stay Loyal” bring out a few freezed dried formulas, a low fat Turkey freeze dried for dogs that aren’t use to eating raw & wouldnt be able to handle the higher fat & a normal Adult freeze dried formula…

Has any one noticed itchy ears with the potato , peas , or beet pulp in this food,
Would it be good not to have a food with these in if your dog is prone to itchy ears.
or won’t it make any difference , I’m concerned about beet pulp mostly.

Beet pulp usually has sugar in it, some companies remove it, anyways sugar to the right person or dog = itching.
Potatoes are high in carbs again sugar.
I think peas are lower in carbs or maybe just lower Gi or maybe I don’t remember lol, I know chickpeas and lentils are low Gi though.

I’d try to stick with low carb foods and see if that helps some.

I’ve got 2 elderly jack Russell’s, 12 and 14. I’ve always fed them what I thought was a premium brand from the pet shop. However, I’ve had them on a stay Loyal for 6 months now, and have noticed a great improvement. There are no more odd infections, and their coats, eyes etc are glowing with health. A great product

Mim is a rescue dog, a little Jack Russell/Chihuahua, who turns12 this year. Mim is obsessed with food and as she is getting older I wanted to maintain her good health. She is quite active, loves going for her walks nad tears around the house and garden, a good watch dog ! I researched a number of dog foods and went with Stay Loyal. Mim enjoys her food, I also use Stay Loyal buttons as a treat at times, they disappear in seconds. I will continue to use Stay Loyal, I believe it has everything Mim needs, she is dearly loved. I recommend Stay Loyal.

I have a Staffy named Bob who was previously fed on a premium brand dog food. Bob has Cushings disease and despite increasing his meal amount he was loosing an enormous amount of weight right before our eyes. I then discovered Stay Loyal dog food in November 2016, now it’s January 2017 and Bob looks a million dollars. He has put back on the lost weight, he is so much happier, his dandruff has almost gone and his “wind” problem has improved immensely….what a bonus!!! We also have a Red Heeler who I have now also switched to Stay Loyal. The company is terrific to deal with being very friendly, helpful and efficiently responsive to emails. I use the Auto Delivery service which can be adjusted to suit your needs and I find this invaluable as I never run out of dog food. Delivery is made by post or courier and arrives on time. Another advantage is that there is a considerable $$$ savings using the Auto Delivery. I can not recommend the Stay Loyal company and their product more highly.

We have a 4 1/2 year old female Bull Arab. She’s had a real problem with contact dermatitis and nothing we tried fixed it. She’s now fed exclusively with Stay Loyal, dished up as Robert suggested…strait onto the dirt outside. Her weight is stable at 29kgs and her coat is clearing up nicely. It’s taken about 4 months, but then I wasn’t expecting an overnight miracle. Not only that, but as soon as her dinner time comes around, she’s giving us, not so subtle, hints that she wants dinner NOW!
Stay Loyal is definitely the food of choice in our family…the fact that it’s an Aussie product is another huge YES!

Why do you throw her kibble on the dirt outside? she’d be licking up the dirt…I’ve heard of throwing the kibble on grass or putting kibble in one of those 12 hole muffin baking trays or buy one of those slow feeder bowls from pet shops if she’s a gulper….
Make sure you bath weekly in a good medicated shampoo when you have a dog with skin problems, if your dog has environment allergies when you bath weekly or as soon as dog is real itchy your washing off any dirt, allergens & pollens that’s irritating their skin…..I use “Malaseb Medicated Shampoo” sold Pet Shop, it’s excellent, it kills any bacteria on the skin & keeps the skin nice & moist leaving their coat feeling real soft, Malaseb can be used daily if needed…. I bet your dog has pink skin & white fur…My vet said he see’s a lot of dogs that are white or have sections of white fur suffer the most with skin problems, these dogs are fair skin dogs…. which formula are you feeding? people don’t mention what formulas they are feeding, I was going to try the new Large breed formula, the fat & protein is lower then the original formula…..

why the hell would he suggest throwing dog food in the dirt? That’s ridiculous. That statement just put me off buying this product if that’s the level of intelligence of the guy who makes it. No dog should have to scrounge manufactured food pieces out of the dirt & many places have all kinds of dodgy chemicals leeching into their ground. My GOd Im stunned by that.

I tried this with my small Chihuahua cross. I loved that you could order a small amount to try unlike other brands where you have to buy at least 2kg then your stuck with it if your dog doesn’t like it. Unfortunately my little dog really struggled with the pieces they were too big for her. She tried a few then wouldn’t eat it any more as it was too hard. A real pity as it would have been good to support a small Australian company. I gave the rest to my mum her dog is much bigger than mine and he loved it.

HI, my 2kg Toy Poodle loves this StayLoyal kibble, she has no trouble crunching up the food,
she looks happy at meal times,
I would think it’s good for their teeth to crunch kibble up , like with bones, unless their teeth are sore maybe.

Switched to Stay Loyal four months ago. Our Bernese Mountain Dog’s coat has really improved. She now races out the door to get her food morning and night. She looks and acts much healthier.
The 15kg bag lasts us just under two months so the price is good value for money. I used to cook up chicken and rice and vegies for her myself but tired of doing this. Really happy I have found this quality food.
The automatic re-ordering is really easy and very prompt delivery ensures our dog is well fed and happy.
Very happy with the product and service and recommend this product to any dog owner after a quality food.

I have two pugs. A friend recommended Stay Loyal to me due to it having no grains. I also rescue pugs and one I rescued had a nasty rash developing. As soon as we changed to stay loyal, the redness started to subside. My other two pugs were on a metabolic diet for weight control so I was a little nervous changing to stay loyal. It was well worth it. Using the feeding guide provided by stay loyal, my pugs have maintained the ideal weight. There coats are always soft and shiny and they clearly enjoy the taste as they guzzle it down in no time!

I’ve started to feed this to both my dogs, and I’ve noticed that they poop so much more and a lot. Not diarrhoea or anything, just big frequent poops. Like three or four times a day. Why is this happening? They love it though.

How are your dogs on Stay Loyal now? has their pooping gone back to normal ,
maybe just their bodies clearing out old rubbish.

I was looking for a quality Australian product when the dog food I was using had a significant price increase. I found Stay Loyal and ordered it for my two dogs – a nine year old papillon cross and a 7 month kelpie/lab rescue pup. Although neither had any health issues, I soon noticed an improvement in their coats. They both love Stay Loyal and now, their little friend, a 4.5 kg maltese cross who was refusing to eat his dry food, is also on it and loving it. Apart from the quality, ease of ordering and price, I am very impressed with the way vets respond immediately to any queries and the advice they provide on a range of issues. I’m very pleased to have found this product and would definitely recommend it to other dog owners.

We switched to Stay Loyal from a dry mix (grains, vegetables and other good ingredients) and raw meat. We found we could no longer source a good quality mince that fit our budget, and as our beagles both have skin issues, we really wanted to go grain free, and after trialing Stay Loyal we made the switch! We had also been advised to change to a kibble to help with our younger beagle’s anal gland issues. They both just LOVE Stay Loyal! And it fits our budget even better. It’s also so simple – feeding a kibble is so much easier than a wet mix! And having the Auto Ship option is even easier! You don’t have to worry about purchasing food at the store, and you know you’ll always have food for them. If we have to put our girls into a kennel, we’ll provide them with a food they are used to, as it’s so convenient! They’ve been on Stay Loyal for quite a few months – we have just finished our 2nd 15 kg bag, and we have noticed a real difference in their coats! They always had soft coats, but they’re even softer now! I also love the regular newsletters – they are always so informative! Highly recommended!!

Very happy to review StayLoyal as requested from the awesome people there. First and foremost I can’t fault the customer service and super fast delivery. I’ve emailed the company a few times and received personalised replies the same day. Changing the frequency of delivery is simple and takes effect the very next day, often the day after that my food arrives. Awesome. Our grain intolerant boxer cross Labrador loves Stay Loyal, she’ll actually eat it straight from the bag and she’s never done that before! Her gut complaints are gone, her stools are friends and easy to pick up and her coat is shiny and healthy. There is no other brand that has had such a good effect. We’re sold. My only minor gripe is the bag isn’t resealable but we’ve got around that by buying a big plastic crate that seals well and we pour it into that to keep it fresh. Happy customers here! Christie and doggy Dakota

Recently we have changed to Stay Loyal dog food, our dog a German Shep he enjoyed it and we are happy with that. Before he was scratching all the time, and his skin was smelly, now slowly slowly he is improving, it takes time, but even he is more happy, I am happy to see him improving thanks to Stay Loyal.

I think the people who created stay loyal are coming here to talk good things about it, because lately there’s been so many comments and when I press on the accounts they only have 1 comment.

Tried switching from wet food to dry food a few times, dogs just wouldn’t have it. Until now. I have 3 dogs, 2 Mastiffs and a staffy. My big mastiff has started doing a quirky thing. I feed him in the laundry. Any clothes on the floor he spends hours flicking them across the floor to bury his biscuits so the other dogs cant have them. Never done it before. Crack up to watch. The orher 2 just eat from their bowls, always licked clean. You can tell just by talking to Robert and his staff they genuinely care about what they’re making. I thoroughly recommend Stay Loyal. I’ve tried many other biscuits and none come close. You can tell just by the smell they’re well made. 10 out 10 from me. Product and service. Geoff Harrison

9 year old border collie and 12 year old Labrador.
I can’t add anything to the current comments.
Our family would do anything to keep our dogs healthy, fit and happy.
They have been part of our family since they were puppies, they live inside with us, come and go to a large grassed yard when they please. They have been eating StY Loyal for six months now and the change in them, in that time, has been remarkable.
No more doggie breath; fewer and firmer, non-stinky stools; beautiful, shiny coats; much higher energy levels and beautiful sleek appearances.
We have always fed our dogs morning and night and that is the only practice I couldn’t change when we switched to SL. We calculate their daily kibble according to the table on the pack and then give half in the morning and half in the evening.
We have followed all the other SL advice about feeding, exercise, care, etc, and we sincerely believe that our dogs could not be happier or healthier and this is a direct result of this splendid food.
I congratulate SL for this tremendous product and hope that they soon turn their minds to our other best friends – our cats!

Our dog Molly had numerous health problems as a pup. We tried her on a grain free diet which helped a lot. However, since starting her on Stay Loyal, she hasn’t looked back. Her stools are now solid, not smelly and not as often. Her coat is also shinier and her breath doesn’t smell. Couldn’t recommend Stay Loyal any more highly. Also very good value for money

My dog must be the only one that does not enjoy Stay Loyal. Putting sardines in the food so he will eat it. Generally not a fussy eating dog. I must say his general dog odour is better.

Hi my pug is on her second bag of stayloyal she has more energy, ear infection has cleared, her skin is not dry and her coat is just shining , people comment on how good she is. Asha is 8 years old and we are delighted with the change in her thank you Stayloyal highly recommend.
It might be a little more expensive but you will save on vet bills.

Best ever dog food. Our Retreiver Lilly suffered from skin allergies and constant ear infections. We have taken her off the awful steroid tablets that the vet prescribed…(I have since found out that long term use of these tablets can cause diabetes and liver disease in dogs). Lilly’s skin and ears have improved so much it is unbelievable and she is a much happier dog….we have now put our border collie Taylor onto the stay loyal also for improvement to his general health. They are both thriving on it…although it is a tad more expensive than supermarket brands, the payback is in the health of the dog and reduced vet bills. There is the convenience of an autoship function and the food is delivered to your door. Just wanted to share in case other dog owners were frustrated by not being able to help their itchy dog….beauty and health definitely comes from within!

My dogs love this food. Their coats are looking good and their energy levels have increased. My only problem is that they have gained almost a kilo each in the 3 months I’ve been feeding them this brand. I have to assume that this is down to me feeding them too much. I have reduced their overall feed to 105 gms a day. I give them 35 gms of Stayloyal in the morning and another 35 gms in the evening with 35 gms of kangaroo meat. The pack says 70-115 gms a day for dogs that weigh up to 10 kg. I would appreciate if anyone can give me advise on how much I really should be giving my long haired Jack Russell Terriers. One weighs 6.6 kgs & the other is 7.3 kg. Thanks!

Hi Jenny, they’re within normal weight for Jack Russells so I wouldn’t be concerned. Personally I feed my dogs as much as they want, and generally dogs won’t put on bulk on a diet mostly meat. It’s the foods full of filler grains which result in bulk because they can’t process the crud.

is it possible to get a smaller bag to try our little sheltie on just in case she doesn’t like it we don’t want to buy a big bag. She is 3 1/2 years old.

I bought an ex breeding cavalier. The breeder told me that she was an “itchy” dog. I tried a raw diet and then changed to a top dry food which gave her hot spots. I then changed to Stay Loyal. She is still a little “itchy” but no redness, no hotspots. Her weight is good and she runs and jumps. She is a cavalier so she doesn’t run and jump often. She prefers to sleep and snore but she’s a new dog. She looks and feels great. Her coat is silky and being a cavalier is always looking for more. I feed her as per the feeding guidelines and she has lost weight which has fixed her arthritis and helped her movement. Brilliant dog food. My fussy young Cavoodle loves it too. Happy all ’round.

Our elderly mastiff x ridgeback has suffered with allergies on and off for years. Our other dog is a staffy who has a thyroid problem and has been on medication for 5 years. So after I did some research on the ingredients in different dog foods, I decided to give Stay Loyal a try. Both dogs love Stay Loyal and are very healthy. Not sure if its a coincidence but we now have been able to reduce the Staffy’s medication. Its also great to have it delivered to our door, promptly after our request date.

Our new rescue dog is a beautiful boxer x staffie and has suffered from red itchy paws since we got her.She was constantly licking them and would start scratching in the middle of the night and keep us awake!
Our previous staffie suffered with a severe skin allergy problem and the only solution was cortisone injections monthly.
I knew this was another allergy and thought “here we go again! whatever am I doing wrong!”I decided I wasn’t going down that path again and after doing some extensive research and trying numerous expensive dry dog food to no avail I discovered Stay Loyal.
I was sceptical at first but I purchased one bag and I have to say that her paws are no no longer red she sleeps all night. It didn’t happen immediately but after finishing one bag of dry the problem is gone. Her fur is extremely soft and shiny and I supplement her diet with with raw meaty bones. Both our dogs now eat it and they love the taste.
I love the fact that Stay Loyal is Australian made and would never buy any products from overseas again! It is extremely hard to find such a high quality Australian grain free product made in Australia.
I also love the monthly newsletters filled with helpful information.
