Good for dogs, not so much me

My dogs LOVE this food. They can never get enough. However, my boy, Brody, is spoiled rotten and will only eat his food if it’s soupy with water….and let me tell you…it smells SO bad and it stays on his breath. It makes me want to vomit. My girl, Jas, likes it just hydrated & not soupy and she doesn’t get bad breath from it. I’ve noticed my dogs eat my grass and even tried eating dirt on this food, which I’ve read couple be nutrient deprivation. Tried a couple other foods and they either don’t eat it or have explosive poos. Other than that and out of stock every couple months when I need it, it’s pretty good on my bank account as well since I go through 2 bags every 3 weeks.

Like Natural Balance Fat Dogs

Seems to be working as well as Fat Dogs by NB and my dog likes it. Proteins, etc. are at or near NB. Costs less and I will buy again.

My pup loves it!

I bought this because it is a lower calorie food. Although my dog hasn’t really lost weight, it has increased the quality of her poops immensely!

Unreliable quality

I was using this with my 2 labs for several months, one has digestive issues, and they were both doing well. Then I started a new bag and they became very thirsty and had to go out all the time even during the night. They started to guard their water and tried to get in the shower to drink. I changed dog food and they were back to normal. I guess there was too much salt, but I cannot find a place to test it and Chewy could care less. They refunded my money but would not check into the issue. I have several more bags that are the same lot and I cannot in good conscious donate them to the shelter. They will go in the dump.

Doggie approved

My vet recommended getting a lower protein food for my dog because her kidney number was a little high. I normally buy the American Jounrney grain free. This one had lowest protein, and still had the glucosamine in it. Slowly mixing it with other food, and my dogs are loving it.

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy

My mommy sneakily mixed this new food in with my old food. Well, as an adopted 5 year old mix that once lived in the streets, this food is better than the Royal Canin she was feeding me. Since my adoption, I'm in heaven with this wonderful tasting food. Oh boy, this food is great and I know it's good for me too. One drawback, my mommy has trouble sealing the bag...bag needs a zip or velcro snap....or maybe they can purchase an air tight canister. Either way. I'm so happy in my new paradise. Woof woof.

Too much money

I started buying this brand 3 yrs ago my dogs love it but I will no longer purchase because the price increase Is over $15. I purchased my first bag for $31.49 (subscription discount)

Not Impressed

I have 4 dogs who typically rush to their dishes to get their food and gobble it up. This food they leave in the dish, without eating any of it until they are hungry later. I have never seen anything like it--all 4 dogs protested by walking away. These dogs have had various foods, and they have not been particular--until now.

My dogs love it.

Ghost is a very picky pittie when it comes to meal time. This is the only food she consistently eats. Other food she would eat some then wouldn't touch it. It's also the only food I've found that she doesn't have an allergy reaction with. She's even put on some weight. Very happy with American Journey.

Great Food!

Murphy loves the American Journey Healthy Weight chicken & brown rice! I add a little water to it for him. He practically runs on our walks, which he had never done before! This food was recommended to me when my regular Blue Buffalo Healthy Weight was out of stock. Thank you so much, Brianna at Chewy, for telling me about this! Murphy thanks you too!
