Description

Big adventures are for every explorer, even the smallest ones. Specially formulated for the higher energy needs of small breed dogs, every bite contains increased levels of protein and fat to support everyday activity. Protein is always number one with real chicken as the first ingredient to support lean muscle mass, and omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids for a healthy skin and coat. The bite-size kibble is perfect for smaller jaws, with a crunchy texture that helps scrub plaque and tartar and clean teeth. Plus, this recipe contains natural fibers to support a healthy digestive system. There are never any grains, wheat, corn, soy, chicken or poultry by-product meals, or artificial preservatives, colors or artificial flavors.

About American Journey Grain-Free Small Breed Dog Food

AJ Small Breed GF - Crafted for Tiny Explorers

Crafted for Tiny Explorers

Even the smallest dogs are always ready for the biggest adventures. These recipes are crafted with increased levels of protein and fat to meet the higher energy needs of your small breed dog. Bring them the grain-free nutrition they need to keep exploring, wherever adventure leads next.

Always Real Protein First

American Journey Grain-Free recipes always start with protein. That means real, deboned salmon or chicken to provide dogs the delicious protein they crave, with the essential amino acids they need for lean muscles and everyday energy, and none of the grains.

SALMON - Source of omega-3 fatty acids like DHA and EPA.

CHICKEN - Lean source of essential minerals and B vitamins like niacin.

Nutrient-Packed Ingredients

Every ingredient is carefully selected for its nutritional value, including antioxidant-rich blueberries and sweet potatoes. You won’t find any poultry by-product meals, corn, wheat, soy or artificial preservatives on this list.

SWEET POTATOES

A healthy source of beta-carotene and other naturally occurring vitamins.

CARROTS

Rich in beta-carotene and natural fibers to benefit digestion.

BLUEBERRIES

Loaded with naturally occurring antioxidants and phytonutrients.

FLAXSEED & SUNFLOWER OIL

Provide omega fatty acids to help maintain a healthy skin and coat.

Designed for Smaller Bites

These kibble bits are specially designed for the smaller teeth and jaws of small-breed dogs. The bite-sized pieces are easier to chew and the crunchy texture works to scrub tartar as dogs eat to help support dental health.

Sustained Energy - Provides increased levels of protein and fat for everyday energy.

    American Journey Dry Food

    By Stevie on Jan 4, 2021

    I changed from a very expensive brand of both wet and dry food. Because my dog is small I really like this product because the kibble is small and much easier for her to "crunch".

    Perfect Size food for Shibas!

    By Lionkingshibas on Oct 7, 2020 Top 1000 Contributor

    I've always fed both of my Shibas American Journey dog food because they love it and their sensitive stomachs love it too. Their mouths are on the smaller side, so I have been waiting for the day that AJ comes out with small breed food and it certainly didn't disappoint! The food is the perfect size for them and so much easier for them to eat. Highly recommend for any smaller size dogs. #chewyteamrated

    Disappointed

    By StrikerZoeMolly on Sep 6, 2020

    I give American Journey to my Great Dane and Boxer. I was excited to finally see a small breed for my Boston terrier. Unfortunately this has entirely too much protein and fat for a small breed dog. Not to mention it's priced too high for a 12 lb bag. The active life small breed isn't much better as it also has too much fat. I'll have to keep buying a different brand for my little one.

    Sweet as the Potato

    By Jenny on Aug 17, 2020 Top 100 Contributor

    I love that American Journey is making dog food with sweet potato instead of only rice. It’s definitely a healthy alternative when you want to stick to a grain-free diet. My pups are not only picky eaters but also have sensitive stomachs so this is a great option for them! #ChewyTeamRated

    Nice to have a grain-free option!

    By Bellababyboom on Aug 4, 2020

    I don’t always feed grain free, but American Journey is very reasonably priced for this option and I feel good feeding it. Thanks for making this option! #ChewyTeamRated
