    My Husky Puppy Hates It

    By AlphaLady on Dec 5, 2020

    Changing our puppy from Purina Pro to this dog food and she hates it. Bought this big bag of food and our dog keeps trying to eat our French Bulldog’s Royal Canin French Bulldog food. I purchased this because of the excellent reviews. But to see she prefers her Purina Pro Food (which my French Bulldog hates) over this food, I have to leave a bad review.

    my pup LOVES it!

    By alyssa on Nov 14, 2020

    After a recent vet visit, it was decided that Captain Budweiser switch back to puppy food because he’s SO active. He’s a two year old cattle dog/lab mix who has been on American Journey foods since he was 6 weeks old. I think this flavor might be his favorite!

    My Puppy Loves It!

    By ccull on Aug 17, 2020

    I have a 7 month old Rottweiler mastiff mix and finding the right food has been hard. I originally started him with blue buffalo large breed puppy food, however similar to other reviews it didn’t seem to sit well for his stomach and it seemed too rich. I then switched him to Eukanuba large breed puppy food. But almost instantly he didn’t seem to like the taste. After getting near the end of the second bag, I decided to find a new kind and found this one. He was excited to eat again and loves the tase! His favorite treats are the American Journey lamb treats and so I knew he would love this food too. I will definitely keep him on this food. Great quality ingredients that our pup loves!

    Awesome food. Only one request

    By Puppy on Aug 30, 2020

    We love the product, so does our pup, but it would be great if the bag had a slider or resealable strip. Thanks for the great product/ingredients at a great price.
