Questions & Answers

5 Customer Questions


are ALL the ingredients in The American Journey Pet Foods sourced in the USA? Or... are there ingredients that are imported from China?
Answer by ChewyOct 08, 2021
American Journey sources from reputable suppliers in the US and worldwide, dependent upon availability. For example, the chicken, beef, and turkey proteins are sourced from the USA, the lamb comes from New Zealand and Australia and the salmon is sourced from the Americas. Select vitamins and minerals may be sourced from China, dependent on global availability. All ingredients go through a robust supplier approval program and have been evaluated and documented for strict food safety and quality parameters.

Does this meet AAFCO standards? I don't see the statement nor is it mentioned.
Answer by ChewyJun 19, 2021
This food is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO dog food nutrient profiles for growth and reproduction including growth for large size dogs that are 70 pounds and more as an adult.

The suggested feeding amounts, is that the current weight of the puppy or the expected weight of the puppy when its full grown?
Answer by ChewyMay 27, 2021
The feeding chart may be located by clicking the “Size” tab, on the product page. It bases feeding on current pet weight and age. This feeding chart is a general recommendation. It can be adjusted for your specific pet when also taking into account their age, activity level, etc. If you are uncertain of the amount, you can always consult with your veterinarian.

Is this made in USA?
Answer by ChewyNov 24, 2020
American Journey is manufactured through a third-party facility in Kansas. We’re unable to share the facility’s name due to their independent ownership. However, all ingredients are passed through the same thorough quality testing as the predominant brands you see on shelves today.

Boring and just adequate

After feeding my 75 lb Lab Hills and Blue Buffalo, I was looking for something to save some money. He's not picky. He ate it fine but that's a boring, bland-smelling kibble. It's very dry. If I was a dog, it wouldn't appeal to me. He seems much happier since I bailed on this food after a week and bought him something better. If you're happy with just okay but still a bit overpriced, this is for you. If you're the kind who spoils your dogs and loves to see them happy, skip this and find something better and tastier.

dogs didn’t like

My dogs don’t like this food. They ate it at first but won’t go near it now. They turn their noses up and walk away. Love the brand but they just won’t eat this kind.

Rug's food

My Dog likes it. His is (now) a 6 mo old Great Dane, so he needs large breed puppy food. I mix this one with the salmon version. makes a great combo for a active growing puppy.

Excellent Large Breed Puppy!

After thorough research, I pulled the trigger on this brand in the spring as my dogs came down with runny stools like many other thousands of PPP users. This food has been an excellent swap to and is now the brand of my kennel/litters! (Euro Dobermans)!

Mixed feelings

I was feeding my German Shepherd mix pup Blue Buffalo Large Breed Puppy, and this seemed equivalent but a little bit better price. I thought I would try it since my older cats and kitten litter were transitioning to this brand just fine. But my pup, who usually eats anything, is turning up her nose to this food. I tried mixing some kibble with wet food, which worked at first. But now she’s just licking the top and leaving the rest.

Love it for our pup

Our German Shepherd puppy loves it. He’s had no issues with digestion and our vet thinks that the nutrient break down is every bit as good as other (much more expensive) brands

Happy with this food

My newly adopted 5 month old Shepherd mix likes this food and digests it well. He had issues with other (pricey) food so I was a little skeptical but he’s doing really well with this formula.
