Our friends at Mr. Chewy recently gave us the opportunity to review Orijen Adult Dry Dog FoodOrijen is made by Champion Petfoods, a Canadian based company, and produced using only the freshest regional ingredients.  Their foods are perfectly matched to the digestive systems of both dogs and cats. 

The first thing I noticed when we received our Orijen Adult Dry Dog Food was the bag was vacuum sealed! Freshness! The next thing I noticed was: 80% premium animal ingredients, 20% fruits, vegetables & botanicals, 0% grain.  Love that!  In addition, the kibble is made with fresh, never frozen ingredients, including free-run chicken & turkey, wild-caught fish and whole eggs.

"Active dogs and cats require a meat-based diet, rich in animal protein and fat. Champion Petfoods uses free‐run poultry, wild‐caught fish, and free‐range red meats for Orijen to provide pets with the best nourishment. Coupled with these fresh meats, Orijen also contains fruits and vegetables, health‐boosting herbs, and balanced mineral content for the healthiest meal pets can get. Furthermore, Orijen is grain‐free for more controlled blood sugar levels and excludes
ineffective nutrients from plant oils as compared to other brands.

Champion Petfoods closely works with local farmers, fishermen, food processing innovators, and the scientific community to produce the highest quality products. Arriving fresh from the region each day, the meat is never frozen and never exposed to heat or chemicals. The harvested fruits and vegetables are ripe with vitamins, enzymes, and antioxidants. Lastly, the natural herbs help strengthen organs and tissues while also supporting the digestion process of pets."


I did not hesitate to have all four of the Lapdogs try Orijen and mixed it in with their normal kibble.  They went nuts for it - in fact, they enjoyed gobbling up the Orijen kibble all on it's own as a little treat.  Foster pup Sake even got to gobble some up... and play with the bag after!

Although we're not in a situation that warrants switching kibble for any of the Lapdogs at this time (we currently have Zeus & Lola on one brand, Sophie & Teutul on another), I would definitely purchase Orijen in the future.  I would also recommend it to anyone looking for a high end, superior kibble for their dog!  And I would most certainly recommend that you purchase it from Mr. Chewy, where you'll receive free 1 - 2 day shipping on any order over $49!  In addition, if you decide to make your life easier and sign up for their wonderful automatic shipments, you'll save 15% off your first order!  Amazing high end dog food + free shipping + the best customer service around + 15% off = you can't beat that!

We've used their salmon (fish?) kibble in a pinch, back when we were living the life of prescription kibble. If Gg was happier with it, it would likely have been the brand we switched to.

We're on a lot of prescription diets now. If I was starting over with young dogs I'd try it. I was a little disappointed with Mr Chewy. After our first big order they raised the price of our food. They now charge more than our vet and I'd rather give him the business, so goodbye to My Chewy.

i feed bailey their 6 fish kibble and she loves it. orijen isn't sold at the big box stores but is worth the extra effort of finding an independent shop that carries it. added plus is that you'll be supporting a small business.
