REVIEW: Going on an #AmericanJourney with Chewy

Disclosure: Chewy sent American Journey products to Lapdog Creations, free of charge, for review purposes. I was not compensated for this review and all opinions expressed are my own.

If you know us at all, you know the Lapdogs (and their humans) are huge fans of Chewy.com.  So, when they asked us to be among the first to review items from their very own American Journey line, we were honored.  The recently launched line of chews, bones, jerky, antlers and more is only available at Chewy. 
I'll be the first to admit that I am overly cautious of what my kids eat these days, especially when it comes to chews, jerky and bones.  So, when I received the email from Chewy talking about their very own line, I was intrigued and excited to learn more.

Sophie can't wait to tell you all about the brand new #AmericanJourney line of #dogtreats and #dogchews from #Chewy Stay tuned to the blog! #dogsofinstagram #houndmix #instadog #muttstagram #rescueddogsofinstagram #adoptdontshop #happydog @chewy

Not only was each and every product carefully selected by Chewy's very own team members (our fellow furbaby parents) to ensure only the highest quality items made it into the line, but each and every product is made, sourced and packaged in the USA!

20150718_124032-1All of the meat in ;American Journey products is sourced from USDA approved facilities, and all of the bones and chews are left natural - never bleached! You will not find artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives in any of the products. This alone scored huge bonus points for the Chewy folks, as I will not give my dogs a chew or bone that has been bleached or colored.

Our goody box was stuffed with a wonderful assortment of the new American Journey products, including:
  • Just Turkey Jerky
    • Literally, as the name implies, there is one simple ingredient: Turkey.  While most jerky treats have a laundry list of ingredients, and are then shaped into perfect "jerky" looking treats, these are simply slices of whole muscle white meat turkey.
  • Beef Tripe Chews
  • 2015-07-14_05-54-5320150725_151859
    • Again, one simple ingredient: Beef Tripe, which has natural digestive enzymes and probiotics that aid the digestive process and promote healthy teeth.
  • Beef Strap Chew
    • 100% beef, sliced whole muscle treat that can be a great alternative to rawhide chews.  High in protein, low in fat.
  • Pork Knuckle Bone
    • Slow roasted with bits of meat left on for a tasty treat and designed to ensure a longer lasting challenge for active chewers.
  • Curly Bully Stick and Straight Bully Stick
    • 100% natural USA beef that has been slow roasted. 
  • Cotton Rope with Bones
    • Not only are the bones made in the USA, but so is the 100% cotton rope.

The jerky and chews can easily be broken into smaller pieces, making them perfect for dogs of all sizes. It also makes them great for training, since you can take one treat and continuously break pieces off during sessions

If you hadn't already guessed by the happy dog photos, the Lapdogs loved this box of yummies from their buddies at Chewy!  And, their humans love having some wonderful new options to treat them with.  While we haven't torn into every single item just yet, so far their favorite is definitely the Just Turkey Jerky. All three dogs were begging for more!

I decided that Penny would get to take the Cotton Rope with Bones to the race track.  This was in part due to our vet not wanting Tut to chew on anything harder than his teeth (which he has really worn down), but also because it is the perfect toy/chew for her to have at the race track. It keeps her busy when she wants to chew, and won't get lost in our race pit.  Plus, when her admiring fans come over, it gives them something to play tuggy with. 


A huge thank you to our friends at Chewy for not only putting the effort into developing such a wonderful, wholesome line for our kids, but also for letting us be among the first to sample it.  Extra thanks for Mama's awesome new American Journey tote bag too.

Check out the whole line of American Journey products at Chewy, where 1-2 day shipping is always free with your order of $49 or more!  Stock up on all the chews and bones your dogs love, try some new products, or grab some for gifts.  It's never too early to start your holiday shopping and there are plenty of American Journey products that any dog would love to find in their stocking this year.  Trust us, those tails will be wagging...

The Portie Pack will pass on these. Since spending mucho dollars on dental repairs we don't do hard chews. I hope to never again face a doggie root canal.
