by FreeAlfin Lower cost than typical supermarket brands dry food
Switched from other premium to Orijen due to better reviews by acredited institutions and my own research. We're just about half way through first bag so I can't really say much other than Skip seems to like it better than the old brand and her coat seem silkier.
One thing I do want to say at this early point is that, in my opinion, many people don't realize that premium dry dog food is more cost effective than the typical supermarket variety. For example: Purina One costs in the average about $1.44/lb while Orijen is about $2.27/lb but....
since you have to feed twice as much of the Purina, Orijen ends up costing significantly less - check it out and do the math.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Didi59 great dog food
I have two small dogs with highly sensitive stomachs. They would vomit at least once or twice a week. I was looking for a completely grain and gluten free food for them. I read the reviews on this food and gave it a try. They both took a few days to get used to it but I added about 2 tbs of raw beaten egg and they ate it up in no time. Now they are eating it dry and are eating less and their stools are firm again. They tend to be overeaters so this is good. I love the fact that I have the option to auto ship so now I will have their food on hand all the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hanna Impressive results and thankful for the cost savings through Mr. Chewy
We fed our Weims only Wellness Core no-grain dry kibble and had been pleased with the product until late last year. We noticed our dogs were having intermittent problems - vomitting, diahrrea, loose stools - nothing serious, but inexplicable. When our female began scratching her ears, we treated for ear infections. Both dogs' coats became dull and flaky. Then we learned there had been a change in the Wellness recipe and wondered if their problems were related to the change.
So we switched to Orijen and within one bag's feeding the difference was amazing. All of their symptoms resolved. By bag two, their coats were unbelievable - soft and shiny. They absolutely love the taste of the Orijen. It's worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Krusty Orijen makes for good stool
Started feeding this to my Dobie and Plott Hound, along with a scoop of very good quality canned food, and they eat it right up. After 30 pounds of Orijen, nobody is vomitting and their stool is of perfect texture and not at all smelly. Nice brown tone too. Also, no flatulence (except when we have company for dinner).

I have a lab mix and a hound mix, each about 13 yrs. old. Incontinence issues cleared up when I switched them to Orijen. Food is so good, I buy it for my cats too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by sylent1 You have to appreciate their effort
I have a white shepherd that was a rescue. I can buy 30 pounds of lean beef for 84 dollars, 30 pounds of chicken breasts for $68 and a five pound bag of frozen normandy vegetables with two types of squash, carrots, broccoli and cauliflower for $2.50. My dog prefers my cooking but I supplement with Orijens adult formula to make sure he has access to vitamins and calcium that he needs. Occasionally I put cooked brown rice in with his food but I like that the Orijens is grain free and I especially like their attention to quality products. You have to appreciate the effort the people put into feeding my dog as well as I do. If they were cheaper I would probably cook for him less. And THAT is about as honest a review as you can get.

Rated 5 out of 5 by htakeuchi Great Product
After the food I was feeding my dogs was recalled, I went searching for a dog food I felt comfortable feeding them. I love this product. It is a bit expensive, but I love the ingredient list and my dogs love it. Their coats are great, they don't chew as much on their paws and I have noticed that one of mine that gets ear infections a lot is not getting them like she used to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Artimid My dog actually bounces when the bag comes out
My dog loves food, pretty much of all sorts, but this one goes far for her. When we originally got the box, she became VERY protective of it, walking around, constantly sniffing it. She almost tried to eat the bag as we pulled it out, and if she wasn't so polite might very well have.
Now, when we pull the bag out to feed her, she literally starts pouncing and bouncing around. To me, it smells slightly nasty, and I love fish.. so keep that in mind. However, with this, she seems less hungry, TONS more energy to the point where she bolts around the house randomly with her toys, throwing them and playing if we aren't able to at the moment.
While the food hurts the budget a bit, it is so worth it to see her this happy and this excited every day. Going to stick with this for the long haul now.
