Questions & Answers

28 Customer Questions

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. 

How many cups are in the 28-lb bag?
Answer by ChewyMar 16, 2019
There are approximately 112 cups in the 28-pound bag.

How long does this food stay good for if stored in Tupperware containers?
Answer by ChewyAug 12, 2020
An unopened bag of food will last until the expiration date stamped on the bag. Ideally, dry food and treats should be consumed within 6-8 weeks of opening the bag. Exposure to air, light, hot temperatures and humidity speeds up the rate at which foods degrade. To limit these effects, keep dry foods in their original packaging and store in a cool, dry location.

Significant improvement

We added a new puppy to our pack (Cheddar). Prior to us, Cheddar was eating Iam’s Puppy and his poops were consistently diarrhea. We switched him to this 2 days after bringing him home and his stomach is SO MUCH BETTER. A) he loves the food. B) massive improvement in poops. Our grown girls have been on AJ foods for years and we’ve never had problems with health. Very excited for this little guys life.

This is dog the food I will stick to from now on! I have researched over the years, as a dog breeder for 7 of those years, and now as the 'mother' of 2 Brussels Griffons, for the very best affordable dog food. This food not only compares to but is BETTER than the most high priced foods out there! The puppy size kibbles are smaller than the adult dog size kibbles. That is VERY NICE for small breeds! The nutritional value of this food is most definitely superior to others. With a high quality food you do not have to transition your dog over slowly. You only need to do that if you are going to a low quality food. I am 100% delighted with this American Journey Puppy Active Life Chicken and Rice!

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

One will eat just about anything....other a bit of a food snob. Add a little extra and she's eating!

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.
