#ChewyInfluencer 30 Day Challenge Wrap Up


Last month Miss Natalie at Chewy.com
 asked if we would like to do a 30 day challenge with

Rachael Ray Peak Natural Northern Woodlands Recipe

 with Turkey, Duck & Quail Dry Dog Food



A big bag of food showed up lickity split at the PugRanch



I have been happy to eat this food


Why are you making me wait for my breakfast Mom???


As you can see - I dive right in!

So here are our final thoughts on  

Rachael Ray Peak Natural Northern Woodlands Recipe

 with Turkey, Duck & Quail Dry Dog Food


Transition to this food went very well, no digestive problems at all.

Hazel started the challenge with me, but started butt scooting a lot so mom put her back on our normal kibble. 
She still occasionally scoots so it may or may not have been the kibble.
 It is grain free so not sure what might have been the cause. 

My furs have stayed shiny and soft

My poops have been consistently solid

As we mentioned in post #2 we were somewhat disappointed that the duck and quail were low on the ingredient list. 

This food is priced lower than what we would consider "premium" dog food so would be more affordable than what we have been buying. 

The big question
Would we consider getting more of this food??

 Although I have done real well eating this food
 the answer would be no.

It is easier for Mom if we all eat the same thing and 
it lacks one ingredient that Mom has found to be very beneficial, especially for Mr Bailey - Pumpkin.
He tends to have a sensitive tummy at times and finding a good kibble with pumpkin has been great for him. 

We want to thank Miss Natalie and Chewy.com for giving us the opportunity to test this food.

We love Chewy.com were you can find great prices, super fast shipping and the customer service is the best of any company we have ever dealt with!

disclaimer: we were provided one bag of Rachael Ray Nutrish Peak Kibble free of charge to try for 30 days in exchange for our honest review




We are the PugRanch Kids
Bailey, Hazel & Mabel

Well done on taking up the 30-day challenge; it never does any harm to explore new possibilities and it can, as you state here, confirm when the status quo is equally good! hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

Madi and Mom said...

My sweet Huggy Puggies this is a great and fair review!!! I 100% agree it is better for all 3 of you to eat the same thing. My sis needed to feed Mia hair ball food. Mia refused to eat it. Since Mia likes anything in Frisco's bowl, sis got sneaky she put it in Frisco's bowl. Mia ate it now they are both eating it. Crazy pants felines. I'm glad I'm not that finicky (mom says LOL)!
Although I don't eat veggies/fruits I have heard great benefits come from pumpkin.
Hugs madi your bfff

A good review. We usually go for the first ingredients listed. Totally understand having just ONE food that agrees with everyone! We must say, you're looking fabulous, Mabel.

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

We HAVE tried some of Rachel Ray's foodables and Snacks... since it is all MADE.. in Meadville, Pencil Vane E Ah... just up the road from our house. We have NOT tried This flavor though.
We are So glad to have our furends do these Reviews since we KNOW that our Furends tell us the Real TRUTH about everythingy.
We Also need to be able to eat the same thingys... so we can Certainly understand why this one is not fur you. BUTT we know that Other than the Lack of Pumpkin in the ingredients... all is Well with this foodable.

Sounds like a delicious food! I tried Rachel Ray's wet food right when I came to my new home...I had lots of gas and diarrhea (TMI, sorry!) but my angel sister Katie was great on it. I have a sensitive stomach!

Pawsome review! It are easier if everybody eats da same foods - around here it's Finley who's got allergy issues, so we all just eat what she can.

Millie and Walter said...

You did an excellent and honest review.

Hailey and Zaphod and their Lady said...

Thanks for your honest review. Lady says it is impossible to have us on different foods so she understands.

We completely understand wanting to feed everyone the same food. I"m glad the boys both like the same thing too. It was nice to follow your journey with this new brand. ☺

Ruby said...

Oh yes, I understands! Though it does look super duper yummers, I gets why buying just one food is easiest fursure. You did a FABulous modeling job, and a FABulous review!!!
Kisses,
Ruby ♥
pees: I thanks you for the cookies.....even if they were virtual, they were DELISH! ☺

KB Bear said...

It sounds like a great food for some pups. We run into the same thing - we want to choose foods that work for both of our dogs so that means that some good foods are instantly out of the running. Thanks for sharing!
