Our last dog which died over 10 years ago, just ate the name brand garbage that you could buy at the grocery store that was full of corn and fillers. I didn't know any better back then. When I got my puppy 4 months ago I started to do a lot of research about dogs, and especially what you feed them. I was horrifed to learn what most "popular" 'brands contain. They are filled with corn and wheat and unnatural ingredients that dogs can't even digest. Then I found Orijen. This food comes from a company that is honest, has integrity and truly tries to give our pets the best possible diet. They do not outsource their food, nothing made out of North America, all the ingredients are fresh and meet human grade standards. My puppy loves his Orijen dog food, and is happy each time I put down his dish filled with it. I can be confident that I am not only feeding my dog the very best food there is, but I am supporting jobs staying in North America.
