Rated 5 out of 5 by Coco8 My dog loves this food.
I'm not usually one to write a review on a product, unless I have a strong opinion about it. My dog is a Mini Pinscher/Chihuahua mix, and has been incredibly picky about wet dog food. I mean, she is 8 yrs old and I haven't been able to get her to eat an entire "serving" of wet dog food, until now. She absolutely loved this stuff. After she finished it, she sat in the kitchen whining for more. I really recommend this product, especially for picky pups. Also, the smell isn't as bad as one would think it is. When you first start mixing it, from about a foot away, it smells oddly enough like graham crackers (both my roommate and I came to this decision). Up close it smells like ground meat. It's quick to rehydrate, its healthy for the dogs, it doesn't smell bad, and dogs seem to love it (according to my own experience and the other reviews here). You really can't go wrong with this dog food. Definitely worth the price and definitely worth a try if you're in the market for a new wet dog food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Happypup Healthy, Happy, Medication free dog!
I have a 5 year old Shar pei mix who has struggled with skin allergies for several years. He was on antibiotics and steroids for long periods of time. I was concerned about the long term effects of the meds. He was not a happy dog when he broke out and had to take meds. I tried high end 'grain free' dog food, which isn't really grain free. The vets solution was to keep him on medication for the rest of his life. After researching I came across Orijen. This was my last effort before changing to a raw diet. He has been on Orijen Tundra Freeze dried as well as Orijen Regional Red Grain-Free Dry Dog Food since March. He has not had one break out since changing to this food and treats. I add Omega oil to his food once a day as well. He is a much happier, healthier dog. Most importantly medication free. It is a bit more expensive but worth every penny. In the long run the vet bills and medication costs would have exceeded the cost of the food. He loves the food! I would highly recommend using any product Orijen produces. It is good quality and truly grain free.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Bedit My dog doesn't care for it
I have an extremely picky goldendoodle pup. He is 1 years old and I have a hard time finding food other than raw food that he will eat. He will also eat some 6fish orijen or the duck arcana mixed with the dehydrated nuggets from instinct or chewy. I was hoping he would like this nuggets from orijen, but he only eats it if I mix it with the chewy raw dehydrated nuggets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Linda This new food for my dogs seems great so far.
My 2 Shih Tzus are hard to buy food for, not because they're picky eaters, but because many foods will trip them into bladder infections. Having had lots of problems with bladder stones I don't want to take a chance. This food is very expensive but if it's as good for them as it seems, I'll pay the price. Any freeze dried food is expensive because of the process. Maybe with enough customers, the price will come down.
When they say reconstituting it with hot water is best, they mean it. Cold takes forever.
Overall, I think this is going to be a great choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MissPiggy1 Very expensive, but not waisting food because my picky eater just leaves it sitting
No transition needed. No vomiting. No diarrhea. No doggie gas. Much contentment. More playful. My picky eater ate all at once. I feed her 1 madallion am/ pm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RMG414 Fantastic Addition
I have fed Orijen to my year and a half old rotti mix and year and a half old yorkie mix since we rescued them when they were pups. I have been a dog owner my whole life and always been involved in nutrition, both personally and professionally. When I lost my last dog to cancer I swore I would do everything in my power to prevent that happening to my future dogs....at least what I could control. The nutrition. Dogs, like any other mammal, thrive when they are provided with a complete amino acid profile in their diets. The best way to achieve this is by offering them different protein sources. I use the Orijen Adult kibble as a base and gave my dogs raw beef, lamb, duck, rabbit, pork, bison, pheasant, salt and freshwater fish, chicken, venison and so on...if your dog has allergies this may not be possible. My dogs do fantastic and look fantastic on this varied diet. When Orijen came out with the Tundra food I jumped on it...my dogs love it, they get multiple protein sources and my freezer space isn't jammed with their food.
