    We went to our dog bakery today to pick up some Timberwolf since we were running low, and found out that they are now selling Orijen :hail: I'm so excited! I've wanted to try it for a while, but didn't have the access to it. We are going to switch Chloe and Madison over to begin with. When Rylie was younger, she seemed to have allergies to chicken so we've been keeping her on alternate proteins (switching between bison and lamb on TWO). After her new bag of TWO runs low, we are going to try to get her on the Orijen as well.

    Yay:p

    We're on Evo again because I like to switch it up a little but we'll be rotating back soon :).

    That is great news! :)

    I contacted Orijen a week ago and asked them to talk to a local Ma & Pa pet supply near me about bringing Orijen in. Needless to say that store will be carrying it soon! The Orijen rep kept me posted the entire time. Such great customer service and I can't believe how easy it was to get it here!

    That's great that you can get it soon as well, showpug :D Our bakery also ships foods, so it is becoming more and more accessable.

    I really like the TWO; my dogs have been on it for over a year...so the Orijen has some shoes to fill ;)

    Jealous.

    I never thought of contacting the company! I either call the store or go in to see what they carry, and depending what they have, I say oh well and leave :lol-sign: Did you contact the store first or did you just let Orijen?

    The price isn't bad at all, and the ingredients are really great :D I really hope the brand gets more mainstream... it seems like it is spreading through the US pretty quickly now.
