That all being said, we're always on the lookout for new and yummy dry foods for Astrid to enjoy. That's why, as part of Chewy.com's Blogger Outreach Program, we decided to give a shot at American Journey™ chicken and sweet potato grain-free dog food.
I always love seeing Astrid get excited for some new food. This time around, I didn't even get the bag out of the beloved Chewy box before Astrid was stalking me throughout the house for a taste.
Not only was I happy that Astrid was already interested, but I also was happy that this food has real chicken as the first ingredient, and is grain-free, without corn, wheat, or soy.
Morsel size is also a huge factor for picky Astrid. She does not like to chew large pieces of dry food, and she'll often pick food formulated for small dogs over that for dogs her 70-lb size, in large part because of the small kibble size, I believe. These Amercian Journey™ kibbles are right in the middle, not tiny and not large, and so I had hope.
She refused to look at me, and I can't say that I blame her. I quickly snapped the shot, though, and then told her she could have at it. And did she like it?
You bet she did! This American Journey™ chicken and sweet potato food was a huge hit with Astrid. She kept begging for more. After 3 bowls, I finally had to go hide the bag. Given her extreme pickiness towards dry food, finding one that she likes this much makes this momma giddy with glee.
Needless to say, this food gets 4 paws and 2 thumbs up!

Our Tip of the Day:
If you like being in the kitchen and spoiling your furbaby with healthy treats, there are a great many homemade treats you can make for your furbabies. For example, you can make your own chicken jerky strips for you dogs or cats. A variety of recipes can be found online (just make sure all ingredients and steps are safe!), but this is nearly as simple as cutting chicken into thin strips, tenderizing it with a meat hammer, and placing it on a cookie sheet to bake on low for a couple of hours. Another option is making sweet potato dog chews, which essentially involves cutting sweet potatoes into slices and baking on low for a few hours. Though many store-bought treats are safe and even sometimes healthy, sometimes recalls and unknown ingredients can make homemade treats sound like the way to go. There are tons of these such recipes out there, so don't be afraid to give it a go!
