Four years ago, the folks over at Chewy.com set off on a journey to provide pet parents the best online shopping experience ever and now they are excited for everyone to hear about their latest endeavor. Crafted with pet happiness in mind, they have created a new line of pet products which are available exclusively on Chewy.com. This new line is called American Journey. This line contains high quality jerky, bones, chews, and antlers with more to come in the next few months. Each product is made, sourced, and packaged in the USA. Their meat is sourced from USDA approved facilities, there are no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives, and the bones and chews are left natural and never bleached.
My two Pit Bulls, Tyson and Crook, are a part of the Chewy.com family and they were sent a variety of American Journey products to try out. These products included Just Turkey Jerky Dog Treats, Beef Tripe Dog Treats, a Curly Bully Stick, a Natural Bully Stick, a Bully Wrapped Rib Dog Treat, and a Pork Femur Dog Treat in addition to a tote bag and a bandanna.
The Just Turkey Jerky Dog Treats and Beef Tripe Dog Treats are single ingredient treats that are great for dogs at any stage of life. They contain no artificial ingredients, fillers, or preservatives. They can be easily torn into smaller pieces or multiple servings, making them great for training. The Just Turkey Jerky Dog Treats are made with 100% turkey from USA farms. They are whole muscle white meat cuts of turkey sliced into strips that can be easily torn into smaller pieces for multiple servings so they are great for training. The Beef Tripe Dog Treats are made with 100% beef tripe from USA farms. Beef tripe has natural digestive enzymes and probiotics that aid the digestive process and promote healthy teeth. Both of these treats are big compared to most dog treats I've seen but my boys are big too so I don't tear them into smaller pieces usually. They both get extremely excited when they see me reach into the American Journey tote bag for one of these treats. They both really seem to enjoy these treats and don't prefer one over the other. These treats also don't seem to bother their tummies. They lick up every last crumb every time.
American Journey Bully Sticks are made from 100% natural USA beef that is slow roasted with no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives, ensuring a tasty, natural meat flavor. They are never treated with chemicals, bleach, or formaldehyde. The Natural Bully Stick is a 6 inch treat that will provide long lasting chewing action for dogs of all sizes while the design of the 9 inch Curly Bully Stick will provide an additional challenge for active chewers. Tyson and Crook loved these Bully Sticks and had them chewed up rather quickly (within 20 minutes or so). I was hoping they would last a little bit longer but if you give my dogs a treat like this, they turn into pure maniacs so I wasn't surprised.
The American Journey Bully Wrapped Rib Dog Treat is the ultimate dog chew, combining a rib wrapped with a bully stick. Each are 100% natural USA beef and are slow roasted with no added artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. They are also never treated with chemicals, bleach, or formaldehyde. Because they are all natural chews, sizes may vary but they are approximately 10-12 inches long, 2 inches wide, and 2 inches tall. The American Journey Pork Femur Dog Treat is a 100% natural USA pork bone that is slow roasted with bits of meat left. Optimal moisture levels are maintained in the roasting process to minimize splintering. It is a high density bone providing a long lasting challenge for active chewers. It also contains no added artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives and are never treated with chemicals, bleach, or formaldehyde. These treats measure approximately 6-7 inches long, 2.5 inches wide, and 2.5 inches tall.
Crook really, really, really liked the Pork Femur Dog Treat. I gave it to him outside so needless to say he didn't want to come back in and when I made him he laid by the front door and whined to go back out. He's a big chewer and was able to chew both ends off but I'm happy to say it took him a good part of the evening to do so and he still has some of it leftover for another day. Tyson got the Bully Wrapped Rib Dog Treat and he really liked it as well. He's not as big of a chewer as Crook is so his treat only shows a few bites marks and is otherwise intact so I'm glad it is going to last him a while (or until his brother Crook steals it away...and I'm sure he will eventually).
Since Crook is more of a chewer than Tyson, he really should have gotten the Bully Wrapped Rib Dog Treat because I feel out of the two treats that one would work better for a chewer because it would last them longer but he picked the Pork Femur Dog Treat and once he makes up his mind there's no changing it. In case you couldn't tell, Crook is the more dominant of the two so he thinks he makes the rules. Like I said, he'll eventually steal it away anyway once he devours his Pork Femur Dog Treat.
