American Journey

Hello, everyone.  It's me, Cammie.  Our friend Sydney at Chewy.com sent us a box full of their own "house brand" of products lately!  How exciting is that?!!?  We've been meaning to tell you all about it, but things have been even crazier than normal around here!

(This was before we got our new door!)

As you can see from the logo in the picture of Maggie (above), the line is called "American Journey". Each product in the line is made, sourced, and packaged in the US. They do not use any artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. We appreciate ALL of those things!

"My turn to wear the pretty bandana!"
"Cam isn't getting a treat, is she?"

As with ALL brands, even the best of brands, every product is not suitable for all sizes of dogs, all levels of chewers, or all levels of play.  Mags and I are considered "medium" sized dogs, for example, so some products that may be fine for some of our smaller friends, would be a choking hazard for us. And some products that might be fine for dogs who don't chew like I do, or like Maggie (who even has to be monitored with black KONGs), wouldn't work for us.  Having said that, we LOVE what the American Journey brand stands for, but have your bipeds select products suitable for you, based on your size, chew power, and let's call it life stage.

Let's get to the fun part, shall we? Show everyone what we taste-tested, Mags!

"It's the all-new American Journey Just Turkey Jerky!!!"

We LOVE that they are 100% turkey meat - nothing else!  (And as mentioned earlier, made in the US!!!)  Let's take a look:

American Journey Just Turkey Jerky from Chewy.com

We were expecting strips, but they were chunks.  Mom knew full well that we'd try to swallow the whole chunk all at once (we can't help it... it's how we are), so she tore off a tiny piece to let us taste it.

"Can we have another bite, please?"
"May we?  Look at how nice I'm sitting!"
Please note really cool tote bag on the Sitzbank!

It was hard for Mom to break pieces off, as it was a bit slippery.  We thought that would translate into getting a BIG piece, but sadly ... no.  That jerky is taste-tee!!!

We give Chewy.com's American Journey Turkey Jerky 3 out of 5 stars.  We love that it's an all-natural product, made in the US!  We also liked the taste very much!  Unfortunately for us, the jerky comes in chunks that were hard to break into bite-sized pieces and it was rather messy.  Mom deemed the whole chunks a choking hazard for dogs our size and with our eating/chewing habits.

Many, many thanks to Sydney and the rest of the Chewy.com folks for letting us try their new product line!  We just love that you have your own "house brand" now, and that everything is made and sourced in the US - and wish you tons of success!

Please surf on over to Chewy.com and check out all of the new American Journey products and have your biped choose products that fit with how you play, chew, and eat!


DISCLAIMER: We received no payment for this post, but did receive the American Journey products free of charge from Chewy.com - in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are our own. And mom's.  Please choose products keeping your dog's size and habits in mind!


  1. Mr Denny dog did a review on this today and he loved it all - but of cause he has a small mouth and small sharp teeth that can chomp it up easily :)

  2. This is so cool!
    I'm a little bummed at Chewy.com. The girl who was our contact apparently is no longer with them, and she was awesome about including us in everything. Now we have a new girl and I just don't feel the love anymore.....stinks! rant/over
    Anyways, I'm so glad the girls enjoyed everything!!!

  3. Oh that looks sooooo tasty, I'm sure I can smell the goodness from here
    Oophs, just drooled on the keyboard AGAIN!

  5. Dear Prime Minister, and Cammie; we are swallowers too. Our human would never let us have that stuff either. Frankly I would suspect the human woman would hide in a closet and eat it herself. We like the strips of jerky. Hopefully the fine folks at Chewy.com will take heed and turn that turkey jerky into strips for us gulpers! - Meeshka

  6. That turkey jerky looks yummy even to us! Our mommy breaks our treats apart too because she's afraid we'll choke. Moms are worry warts. *sigh*

  7. We LOVE turkey jerky too. Maybe we could get Mom to pull out a hammer and try to smash those chunks into smaller pieces. We had some delicious rabbit jerky earlier today (no not from the yard, from the bag in the cabinet:)

  8. great review! we like what you say about considering treat size and eating habits..er...except for us kitties... the bigger the treat the better...hear that mom? ahem... you know, our Wriggley isn't allowed stuff like bully sticks cause he will try to swallow them in one go! these jerky treats look pretty good for him...and maybe we could even get some crumbs! both of you look great in the bandana!
