Rated 5 out of 5 by JaranMarcel Miridan's Favorite Food
My 2 year old toy aussie loves this food. I switch him between the different flavours but this one is his favorite. It smells like real fish, and he is by my side in an instant as soon as I open the bag. I highly recommend this.

Both my dogs can be picky eaters, or need to be coaxed, they took to acana more willingly. Also smaller bites are helpful for the little dog. Smells fresh when package is opened. And fish is a good protein for them to have. No problems so far. I have a greyhound and a little mutt, both rescued and deserve the best

Rated 4 out of 5 by SophieG Great, but the smell, wow ("Pacifica" formula)
This review is for the "Pacifica" formula.
I've had nothing but good experiences with Acana formulas for my 11 mo. old lab/pit mix. This formula is no exception and I'm still very happy with the quality and how easy it is on his digestion. However, this is the first formula that makes my entire kitchen stink like I opened a giant bag of tuna - and it lingers. I have to break out the Febreeze or else I just can't stand it - since the weather is so warm, opening up a window or door only lets in the heat and the flies.
I can tell my pup doesn't find it as appetizing either as he has suddenly become finicky about finishing his food in one sitting - he gobbles up every other Acana recipe we've tried. He'll still eat it because I don't let him graze - he eats what's in his bowl in the time he's given or he loses it. This is the first time that he's skipped his breakfast so many consecutive days in a row - 3 and counting.
I say, if this formula works for your pup and you're ok with the smell, it's a great product - no doubt about it. But it's not for us. Looking forward to trying their Wild Atlantic formula next - hopefully it's less stinky as I don't believe it contains any salmon - which is a particularly "fishy" fish and might be where the smell comes from.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KelpieWaterHorse Excellent First Step!!
Acana is an excellent "entry" food into the land of grain-free.... wherein your pets will have far fewer health difficulties, excellent energy, and healing of such things as skin conditions and allergies.
Acana is made by the same company that makes Orijen, and to me, Orijen is the Cat's Meow. Or, the Dog's Bark. It's the TOP of the TOP.
If you try Acana and like it, you will LOVE ORIJEN. Order some Acana, and read what's on the package. Nothing more is needed. I swear!
If you fear the price-tag (like I did!), please rest in the knowledge that you will be feeding your pets only a FRACTION of the amounts you've fed them of food involving grain. When you feed grain-free, and heart-healthy-fats, which are included, your pet will be satisfied with an amount far less than what you'd feed her with most locally-available foods.
If you sleep with your pets (I sleep with seven!) please know that these healthy grain-free foods eliminate FLATULENCE. Ahh..... there is a Heaven, after all!!

Hoping to cure my golden's allergies as he can't have chicken. Hope this works, but it is higher quality and he doesn't need as much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mokido Quality food the dogs like
My dogs seem to like this one, though not as much as the Appalachian Ranch. It has a strong fishy smell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marine03 Acana is simply the finest in Dog food!
Our Basset Hound suffers from Irritable Bowel Disease, this is the only food she can digest without having any gas or loose stools and she loves it!
Thanks so much ACANA for developing such a great food for our pup.
