A few have asked what the cost is for the larger bags of Orijen. I pay $57.99 for a 29.7 lb (13.5 kg) bag. $65.53 with the taxes here in Winnipeg.

Both my dogs are still really enjoying this food :thumbs up

I was thinking about switching to a food that's easier to find. Maybe Ol' Roy...there's a walmart down the street :D

I wanted to ask last time I was at the food store, but I'm so braindead, I forgot which company makes orijen (Champion foods, right?)

So I ask the guy, and he looks at me like I'm crazy. And I said : 'you know, it's canadian. And it's high in protein...it's from...you know...that canadian food maker company.....it's O-R-I-J-E-N....they make acana too....you know....what are they called??'

I'm surprised he didn't kick me out of the store.

i got a bunch of samples from my neighborhood petstore, they're working hard at upgrading the food they sell... they've just added nature's variety and i got every sample.... 3 packs of "raw instinct" too :D but they had no idea that solid gold also made a grainless kibble, so... they'll be looking into adding that. :D

Yeah, it's Barking at the moon. They cheapened the ingredients to it in the beginning of the summer.

but it's still better than "pukanuba" :D they've eliminated the SD, and then the Iams, they still have royal canin and Nutro, but i'm introducing them to other stuff... Fromm's... Innova... holistic Eagle Pack has a good rollover so he's keeping that... now Nature's Variety. at least they're listening! :thumbs up

Whenever I get that response I give them the company's website so they can see what a good food it is.

I contacted Champion foods by e-mail and they gave me a list of stores here that were carrying it - they got back to me very quickly so you could try that as well.

Thanks, will do that as the pet store in town that I like is out of the way. Hubby is out of town right now and I have to use the *****ty transit service we have here.
