They go beyond the first ingredient for wholesome goodness, using fresh refrigerated ingredients and raw ingredients frozen at the peak of freshness, with no added soy, corn, tapioca or wheat.

ACANA’s Commitment to You

ACANA goes above and beyond in their commitment to quality, with meat-rich, balanced recipes made from carefully sourced ingredients.


The first two ingredients in every recipe are fresh or raw meat, poultry or fish.


ACANA uses a trusted network of farmers, ranchers and fishers to source the wholesome foods for their recipes.


Protein-rich animal ingredients complemented by fresh vegetables, fruit and botanicals provide balanced nutrition.


A track-and-trace system that goes beyond food industry standards helps ensure safety, quality and transparency in every batch.

Try Rotational Feeding

Keep things exciting at mealtime by rotating the ACANA recipes you feed your dog. This will allow your best friend to enjoy a variety of animal proteins in delicious and nourishing new flavors. Don’t transition too abruptly, though—start by replacing 25% of the old food with the new recipe and gradually increase the amount over time. Puppies are recommended to remain on puppy diets.

Questions & Answers

12 Customer Questions

Is the grain inclusive free run chicken/turkey coated in liver like the grain free? My dog loves it.
Answer by ChewyNov 12, 2021
After the kibble is cooked in the extrusion process, it is coated in oils, then their freeze-dried infusions. This is the same for all ORIJEN and ACANA Kibble recipes. Some bags will end up with slightly more or less, and that variation is perfectly normal.

How many calories are in each cup of this dog food?
Answer by ChewyFeb 19, 2021
This recipe contains 371 kilo-calories per cup.

What is the carbohydrate percentage in this food?
Answer by ChewyApr 01, 2021

How much taurine is in this kibble if any???
Answer by ChewyJun 29, 2022
This recipe contains approximately 0.1% taurine on an as-fed basis.

Healthy shiny coat for GSD!

This food is excellent and perfect for our German shepherd. I'm glad it's sourced and made in the USA. Our German shepherd has maintained her healthy shiny coat on this food. Grains are good for dogs and I like that this company uses high quality grains. We like to rotate between the chicken and beef varieties to keep things interesting for her.

excellent food

This is a great food for my mini Aussie! We started with the puppy food which is grain free! However, our vet highly recommend that why choosing food for your dogs you should get food with grains and should only buy grain free dog food if your dog is allergic to grains! Anyway, I like Acana dog food! When following the feeding recommendation you don’t have to worry that your over feeding your dog like so many other dog foods! I believe that Acana is using the best ingredients to provide healthy food!

is it gluten free or not ?

I see a commenters post about it being misleading … the title shows gluten free but the bag or pictures don’t label the product as gluten free

picky dog seems to love it

my senior dog, he's 13 but has way too much energy for his age, he has always been so picky and only wants human food, especially chicken, he goes crazy for it lol. usually with other dog foods he'd leave it there in his bowl for a day or until the last minute late at night when he has no other choice to and wouldnt eat it consistently. i switched to several other ones and tried to even get him food made for senior dogs but with acana, this is the first time he actually eats his food more than once a day, everyday and he actually finished his first bag so much faster than other dog foods hes had before, so he seems to really like it.

Excellent food for my dogs

Both my 12 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback and my 3 year old Mini Bull Terrier really like this food and they do very well on it. Easy transition as well.

My boy hates it :(

We gave our boy ACANA’s food since the first day, including grain-free puppy, wholesome puppy, wholesome red meat, wholesome fish .. all of them are with great dense material and my boy always finished the food without any left. However, this wholesome chicken version is super terrible: 1. The food material is much more loosened than others, with a little bit of water, it will swell up 2. Our boy hates it… refuses to eat and always leave a lot in his bowl Not sure if it’s only our bag with this bad quality or all wholesome chicken flavor like this, but won’t buy it again.

incorrectly advertised as gluten-free

I tested the Acada Free-Run Poultry Recipe with the Nima gluten-free sensor and it showed a positive test for gluten. It may be grain-free, but it is NOT gluten-free. On a positive note, it seemed like good quality and my dog liked the taste. Unfortunately, due to a family member's high sensitivity to gluten, we can't have it in the house.

Cardboard/stale smell. Gassy dog

When I opened this bag of food it reminded me of cheaper dog foods. The scent was almost a stale smell. I don’t expect dog food to smell great, but this was like cardboard. I decided to have my dog try it anyway and let him be the judge. He eats it fine, but boy oh boy is he ever gassy. I won’t be purchasing this again for him.

Great for goldens

Got this adult food for my golden retriever once he turned a year old. He LOVES it and eats every ounce. Highly recommend this food for dogs that NEED grains as this food contains grains.

It's taken a multitude of different brands and flavors to finally find something my dog will eat, and eat without getting gas, tummy upset, or other weird effects. It's been about three weeks in this and he's also starting to shed less.
