Why we carry ACANA at DogPlay

With limited space in our retail store, we have to be select about what brands and products we carry. When it came to dog food there were lots of good options, but ACANA was one brand that really stood out to us. Here are some reasons why we believe that this is one of the best dry foods you can buy for your dog:

1 -Biologically Appropriate. Yes, this is a marketing term but it is still an accurate description of ACANA dog food. Their formulas are designed based on the idea that dogs are primarily carnivores and require a meat and protein rich diet.

2 – Fresh, Local Canadian Ingredients. You can even track which farm your cage-free chicken came from, what fruit grower supplied your Okanagan red delicious apples, where your flounder, salmon or herring were sourced, or what ranch raised your free-range, antibiotic and hormone free Black Angus beef!

3 – High Quality Ingredients. Whether it’s your food or your dog’s food, checking the ingredients list is a key to a healthy life. With ACANA you won’t see any by-products or fillers like corn meal. ACANA dog food is always preservative free and never frozen. Just the good stuff.

4- Multiple Formulas. Whether your dog is a small breed, large breed, puppy, adult, or somewhere in between, there is an ACANA formula for you. If you want something grain free they have several great options for you to choose from. And if you have a delicate eater with allergy or digestive issues you can go with…

5 – Single Source Protein Formulas. Lamb and Okanagan Apple, Duck and Bartlett Pear, or the new Pork and Butternut Squash are three amazing formulas for dogs with sensitive tummys or food allergies.

6 – ACANA Loyalty Program. If all of this isn’t enough, when you buy 12 bags of ACANA you get your next bag free!

We’re always happy to help you figure out which ACANA option is best for your pet so please don’t hesitate to ask if you have some questions. We have sample bags for those who want to try and we can order in any formula you want if it’s not already available in the store.
