I have a lab/german shepard mix who is now almost 4 years old. Beyond being a smart and awesome dog, she has allergies and has a very sensitive stomach.Her health is my number one concern. Over the past few years, we have tried most of the premium dog food brands and have finally settled on Orijen. Every dog is different, just like humans, so my dog's experience can be different from your dog. Be aware that this food is very calorie dense so you will need to feed your dog less than your other foods. My dog absolutely loved the taste, as she took to it like I was feeding her treats. I know the Orijen food is pricey, but you will be feeding your dog much less than the others so it will last a lot longer. But most importantly, her skin stopped itching, her coat looks beautiful, and she seems much healthier. I highly recommend this food.
