I tried using it with my 2 larger dogs. I also tried using Orijen. Both dogs ate the foods just fine but had larger, mucousy stools on both foods. I think these foods work well for many but did not for my dogs.

It is a good food. I tried it with Molly but she refused to eat it.

It is very well reviewed on the dog food advisor site. We used it when Ruby was on a food strike after her spay operation and it got her to eat again.

probably one ,if not the best rated foods. No it is not for every dog. Some people don't like chocolate cake So good that Champion is building a new plant in the U. S. http://acana.com/dogstar-kitchens/?lang=usa Eat your heart out Purina.

Was the food Oliver was on as a puppy would still be using it, but for some reason he just stopped eating it. Switched to another brand and he has been on Now ever since.

Acana is what Emmie's breeder used and sent her home with. I liked it but decided to feed her a commercial raw diet instead of kibble.

Champion (Orijen) makes a freeze dried raw which is top drawer.

We use Orijen Regional Red and Six Fish. Mochi is on her 3rd 5lbs bag. We add water and veggies.
