    My dogs love - great fiber

    By pitmom23 on Feb 17, 2021

    I have 2 dogs, a Pit mix whom has anal sac issues and a lab mix whom is slightly overweight and this works for both of them. The added fiber keeps my lab fuller longer so he can have slightly less food. He usually is aware when it’s time for his dinner but with this food, he’s waiting an extra hr or 2 before begging for dinner. My Pit needs the extra fiber to keep him regular and his sacs expressed and this has helped his stool bulk up and he now goes 3 times a day. It’s salmon so of course it smells fishy when you open the container so not sure why that would be a negative comment in reviews; don’t buy Salmon food then. I’ll continue to buy this food forever so please don’t change or get rid I have 2 dogs, a Pit mix whom has anal sac issues and a lab mix whom is slightly overweight and this works for both of them.

    Thank you!

    By Doglady on Jan 25, 2021

    I love that you guys listen to your customers' reviews! I asked for a healthy weight option and I got it. My dog gets skin irritation from any other food (and I've tried about a dozen different brands) but the AJ Salmon recipe. The only problem was that she started putting on a few too many lbs and I had to cut down on her daily amount, which she was not a fan of. So me and Zoe thank you for listening to our request. I'm super hopeful that this will be the balance we were looking for in her diet.

    big bag for an old bag!

    By MMF1 on Jan 22, 2021

    I like this food for many reasons. HOWEVER, a 28lb. bag is difficult for this 73 yr old lady to manage. I live alone.I could barely get it into my storage unit (which is like a plastic trash unit on rollers). We almost all tipped over. But I like the quality, the calories, fast delivery, and that it is made in the US. Could we have smaller bags?

    New healthy food’s pretty good!

    By KBUNNY80 on Dec 25, 2020

    My girl was on a prescription diet for the last 9months as a result of quarantine and gaining weight. As it’s not meant to be a lifelong diet, I decided to try something different and my Zurie enjoys this! Her digestion is great, doesn’t leave her gassy. I just add some chicken broth and 1/3 cup of kibble (she’s 18lbs fyi) twice a day and so far, so good! Would definitely recommend giving it a try if you’re trying to refrain from poultry and fatty proteins.

    Good food and good value

    By Hann on Dec 13, 2020

    my dogs, a golden and a mixed lab, seem to really like this food. We haven’t had any skin or digestive issues, like we have had with other foods. It’s a very small kibble and they like that. Overall, it’s not a fancy, expensive food and I don’t know the health benefits, but I am very happy with it.

    no more Salmon

    By scott on Dec 18, 2020

    The dogs seem to love it.. But I have 2 major problems with it... 1) The smell is horrible. It fills the room when I open the container that it is stored in. 2) The size of the dogs waste is much greater. We will try a different flavor.

    Gives them gas

    By Maw2them on Mar 1, 2021

    I don't know what is in this formula but it gives my dogs gas. I'll go back to the less expensive chicken blend.

    Safe but no appetizing!

    By Moon on Oct 31, 2020

    This new food seems healthy and nutritional but my dog eats it only when she is super hungry. The recommended daily portion for her is five cups a day but she eats only about two. Our cat, an adopted feral, eats dog food but this new food interests him the least of any previous selection. My dog Moon's stool is solid and healthy but her appetite is depressed. Moon walks about 25 miles a week and her weight is healthy. I'm going is switch back to another more appealing dry food before she loses weight.

    Happy Dogs

    By Jeannie on Dec 18, 2020

    We've used American Journey for several years now. We just switched from Grain free to this recipe. My dogs couldn't be happier! I feed this to both dogs, 5 yo YorkiePoo and 3 yo Husky mix; and they gobble it up.
