CICLÓN®: Who sells the largest bags dry dog food?
I have three very large German Shepherds. I feed them 52 lb. bags of "Pedigree Adult Dry Dog Food". but they can go through a bag in about 5 to 7 days. Is there a place that sells a larger size bag of pedigree or similar dog food? Like a 95lb. or 100 lb. bag?

No, they do not sell them in a larger quantity.
I would start buying in bulk.

First, I'd get them on a decent food. Maybe Blue Buffalo, or Taste of the Wild.
Kirkland (Costco) or 4Health (Tractor Supply) are good ones that are around $ 20/$ 30 for a good sized bag that are better quality than other grocery brands.
How much are you feeding your dogs? I think uf they're eating that much that fast, you're probably feeding them too much. On a good food, German shepherds shouldn't need more than 3 to 4 cups of food per day.

52 lbs….. 22 kgs .. that's an odd amount. Most UK ones are 15 kgs bags. (only out of interest)
I don't know of anyone that does bigger, however we have quite a few who do deals on more than one bag at a time
Have to say though, after feeding rottweilers of all ages I would never go through 52 lbs per week for 3 dogs even at their peak of eating before it comes down a bit at about 8 to 10 months old.
My foster adult dogs of up to 50 kgs will go through one 15 kgs bag per month. Personally if they need that amount of food to keep a stable weight which is what you are after then you might be better off with a better quality food and feed less. Trouble is with pedigree is that it is so highly marketed that it can be priced up there with the best even when it is not anywhere near the best.

Try buying at Costco or some other big box store maybe? I'm wondering though, if you fed them a higher quality dog food maybe they wouldn't go through it so fast??? interesting question

Doubt it – what pet owner is going to be able to lift a bag of this size! I have a hard enough time with a normal 20kg bag these days.
Find an outlet that will give you a deal on buying bulk.
