Says the Pups! This has been our Go To Dry for years... 9 at least. There was a different chicken based dry up until a few years ago, with 2 other fowl types... I believe Turkey and maybe Pheasant, which I preferred bc it had a less fishy smell ( my dogs are very "kissy-kissy!"), but they like this nearly as well. I mix high quality canned or more often boiled human grade chicken and some veggies because I see how much more they enjoy the dry when I mix that in. 10 breasts or 15 thighs frozen into 3 day bags last us 2 months (for 2 small, low-to-moderate activity Seniors). I bid goodbye to a 3rd dog last month, at 17. She got this the entire 6 years I had her after stealing her from death row! Her health was a nightmare: grey, thick, peeling, bare skin over about 90% of her body, and she smelled like a dying mushroom as she had a full body fungal infection. Also 152 Allergy sensitivities. Thankfully none were food-based, but she weighed 7 pounds instead of her eventual 18 pound fighting weight. With medicated baths 3x/week, the above mix of fresh home-cooked food and ACANA, in four months she had turned over her skin issues stabilized her sensitive stomach, and looked 6 years younger. While I admit the ACANA was not her only food, it was the constant majority, and I believe it went a long way to replenishing the depleted nutrients in her system after being tracked by animal control for 2 years in the industrial bowels of our County. I used to cry as even the tiny hairs on her eyelids grew back and she became a most plush, energized, and joyous dog! So, in spite of following the endless dog food battles for years, with 8 dogs of my own and 15 other Fosters, I gave stuck with ACANA. I was worried when they were taken over by MARS, but with the exception of eliminating a few product options, it seems to be maintaining the quality of it’s 1979 Champion Co. introduction.

I used to absolutely adore Acana and Orijen products, but that was before I knew Champion is now owned by Mars. Had I known I wouldn't have purchased this last bag. I am writing this review to warn other pet parents of this change of hands. Until I know for sure and have proof the brands can still be trusted, I will not be risking my dog's health by purchasing anything from either of them.
We have been using the dog food since our boxer was old enough for adult food. It was great. 6 months ago Acana was purchased by mars and everyone said switch. I stuck it out and slowly he started to get ichy, raw ears, loosing hair around his neck. I have compared the ingredients every time the package has come and appears the same, however they must be sourcing from inferior resources. Clearly the same ingredients but I bet there’s less organic and quality products being used. We have changed and already have noticed he is so much less itchy.
My dog "Tiger" is a notorious picky eater. But he seems to really love this food. He's been eating it well for a couple of months now, fingers crossed...
Completely do not recommend. Second day of feeding dog she became very sick, puking and having diarrhea. Company was recently purchased by Mars (also owns Iams and Pedigree) so I’m sure quality has dropped. Will be switching to Open farm.
Finally a product that is not insanely expensive and won't make my dog vomit! All the other cheap brands upset his stomach. He also would act fussy and not chew other kibble- this one he chews no problem
I got these bc most of the ingredients are super fresh and seems to be good for them. My dog is FREAKING in love with his food he paws at his bowl he’s not a picky eater though. The kibble is big pieces but it’s not a problem for my 30 lb dog. My old food was making him throw up a lot and he hasn’t since he went on this. He’s super soft and shiny and doesn’t seem to be itching. Wish it was cheaper.
An awesome quality food made by an awesome quality company.
I have fed Acana to my dogs for several years. They like it & I think it’s a quality food.
My dogs will not eat it. They tried and started vomiting. I have two bags of this food, I can not use now.
