Why does the brown rice formula have significantly less protein % than the grain free formulas?
Answer by ChewyAug 21, 2019
The guaranteed minimum percent of protein for the 3 grain-free puppy recipes are 30.0%. The first three ingredients are meat sources and make up a majority of the total ingredients in the recipe. Therefore, more protein is coming from meat than vegetables.

Is this product grain-free?
Answer by ChewyApr 17, 2019
This variety is not grain free. For a complete list of ingredients, click the “Nutritional Info” tab, next to the “Description” tab, just under the product photos. 

where is this made and distrubuted from?
Answer by ChewyFeb 07, 2019
This food is made in California.

Great product

My puppy loves this product also. Chewy always has great products, and I will not buy my dog or cat products from anywhere else. When my older dog (BOOO) passed away I spoke with a Michael, he was so kind and not only did I get a refund on my products, due to the fact I has ordered the products two days before she passed away. Chewy knows how to take care of their customers!!!!!!

Great for puppies

My golden doodle loves this food and I love that it’s made with healthy ingredients. Great food puppies. My breeder recommended it and I’m glad she did since I wasn’t sure what to choose

Makes my dogs have soft poops

I liked the little bites of food, my dogs are a little over 1 so they don't need the little food but it would work for a puppy. My dogs are used to chicken protein food however this food seems to make their poop soft, too soft! I am not going to recommend this food but I don't think it is the worst one on the market

The sheer volume

Pros: Pup loves the taste Great price Good ingredients Cons: My pup’s poop has increased by 50%. They are massive in the volume it is insane, also a lot more moist. Plus, they smell! I am not sure if anyone has encountered this issue. Not for those using puppy pads, especially a large breed puppy!

Not for our Cavapoos

We have two Cavapoos and they do not like this food. They could be terribly hungry and they walk away from it. I purchased the large bag after reading the reviews. I started a slow introduction and noticed that they would spit out the American Journey kibble but I thought it was normal. Now that I’ve ran out of my initial purchase, I feed them only this and they won’t touch it. Sadly I wasted $$ and need to get some of the old food back on their bowl.

Loving the puppy American Journey

Before getting my puppy I looked at several puppy foods before this AJ puppy showed up. With the ingredients and other reviews, I thought I would give it a try. I am pleased. My puppy loves it, is healthy, and growing well. His coat is very shiny. My vet is happy with the overall health of my boy. Started at 4-5months. American pitbull terrier.

Would not recommend

We tried this brand after using Blue Buffalo and our dog will not touch it. He just walks away.

Great growth

I had our lab puppy on a quality brand puppy food that was not available through Chewy. I reviewed several brands and really liked what I saw in the American Journey. We have been on it now for 2 weeks and she looks wonderful and does not have the dandruff she had before. She is growing better as well!!

Our husky shepherd mix love this stuff.

Let me begin to say this stuff is the best quality for the price. No wheat corn or soy! First Ingredient is meat! Our husky shepherd mix loves it and her coat loves it too!

Good stuff!!

The puppy loves it,Bloodhound/Shepherd mix. Compare to Hills Large breed puppy and you'll see both more protein and fat content plus a better supplement mix.
