I am being compensated for helping spread the word the word about the launch of Natural Balance® products at PetSmart, but Dog & His Boy only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers. PetSmart is not responsible for the content of this article.
For those of you who have been feeding your dogs and cats Natural Balance, this is a great time to celebrate. You no longer have to order online and wait for a drone to appear on your lawn. Instead, you can pop on over to your favorite neighborhood store: PetSmart!
If you are new to Natural Balance, then this is a great time to do what Dog & His Boy did: learn about Natural Balance products.
When Edison was first asked to lend his name and fame to this nationwide product launch, we did some research. We wanted to know more about Natural Balance, the food and treats they create and if they would meet Edison’s nutritional needs. Edison is a foodie with a cultured palate; he likes to eat healthy but only if it tastes good. We sat down and studied the ingredients of several food lines and decided that the Natural Balance Wild Pursuit was perfect for Edison and Co.
- The dry kibble has a high concentration of protein from three separate protein sources.
- Each flavor includes a novel protein source, such as guinea fowl, quail or trout.
- The Natural Balance Wild Pursuit line also includes several unique flavors of canned food with even more protein sources.
- Yummy, unique treats perfect for our frequent deaf dog training sessions.
At the launch party, Edison was quite popular. His movie star looks always grab the attention of passersby but what keeps their attention is that he is deaf. Once people know he is deaf, the #puppypurrazzi comes out.

But here’s the rub when your dog is more famous than you: When he gets invited to exclusive parties, you get to go- but only as his Plus One.
The sooner you accept your role as security guard/ vending machine/ entourage, the better off you’ll be and, honestly, it’s not all bad. There are perks to this symbiotic arrangement.
- In exchange for being fame-adjacent, I get to follow him around and pick up his poop.
- Once he’s been exhausted by a throng adoring fans, I get to carry his 92 pound body around.
- After nearly dropping him on the floor (don’t judge me…I told you he was 92 pounds!), I got to push him around in a cart, so long as I promised not to make eye contact or ever touch him again.
While we were at the launch party, Edison picked out some food and treats he wanted to try. He chose the Natural Balance grain-free Wild Pursuit Lamb, Chicken and Guinea Fowl kibble. For canned food, Edison selected the grain-free Wild Cuisine Beef, Buffalo and Venison, and for treats, Edison insisted on two bags each of the Natural Balance Wild Pursuit Lamb Lung Bites and Venison Lung BItes, both of which are gluten- and grain-free.
Natural Balance has many lines of food and treats available and each variety is available at your local PetSmart. Find the closest one to you here. Oh, and tell them Edison says hi!
