    Much better

    By Wendy33 on Feb 14, 2021

    My border collie puppy was on Purina Pro plan (puppy) - chicken when he come home to us. He had pretty runny stool but it was still formed so i figured it would settle out. After a couple of months, he was still having problem so i added a probiotic to his food to see if that would help. After about a week of that, he began not finishing his food. A few days after that he quit eating it all together. I wasn’t sure about American Journey Dog food but my puppy love the training treats so u tried it! We got the Active Life Puppy formula - Salmon and he ate it from day one! With in two days his stool firmed up and there was no need for probiotics! So happy with the change!

    Everything I wanted

    By Kaye on Feb 1, 2021

    When I picked up my new puppy I stopped at the grocery store and bought a bag of P****a puppy food, large breed to take home. It was all they had in a quality puppy brand at the store. I knew I would order some of this product from Chewy when I finished that bag. However, our girl had gas and soft diarrhea every day. She also never seemed satisfied, like she never had enough to eat. Within two days she was much more satisfied at her meals. She did not whine and beg for more. Within four days her bms firmed up to something much more normal. And within a week, she was leaving a little bit behind in her dish and didn’t need the highest amount for her size on the feeding scale. She loves it!

    Great food

    By Ellen on Mar 17, 2021

    2 German Shepherd puppies, love it, beautiful coat. I would continue to use it, however the price on it continues to rise. I remember when you first started this and the price was so much less. Too bad, I will look for a food with similar ingredients. But still love it!

    Looking for a new food.

    By Will on Feb 22, 2021

    I just recently tried American Journey for the first time and I won’t be buying it again. I have 9 dogs and half of them had loose stool or vomited. I know people have had success with this food but, I don’t think it’s for us!

    American Journey Puppy Food

    By Debi on Feb 2, 2021

    I have three rescue dogs - two of which are puppies and one who is older, along with an elderly dog. Although I purchased the puppy food for my two young pups 8 months and 12 months, all four seem to really like this food.

    Love this dog food

    By Rosco on Nov 25, 2020

    We started our Belgian Malinois puppy on this food when he was about 8 weeks old. He’s 6 months now and still loves this food! He is very active and high energy, after feeding our rescue the adult salmon mix we wanted to put him on a similar diet. Highly recommend this brand, our dogs coats are soft and shinny.

    Good food but dogs already don't like it

    By Samantha on Dec 17, 2020

    It seems like a good food but I bought 2 bags and it's only been a week and my 1 dog won't eat it anymore. She doesn't seem to like this food and how small the pieces are. We have a whole bag and half wasted now.
