Feed Your Pet Like a Champion

Champion’s humble roots can be traced all the way back to 1979 in Canada, when Reinhard Muhlenfeld started making food for dogs in local ranch and farming communities. Since then, Champion has grown to be widely known as pioneers in what it means to produce quality pet food—and when we say widely known, we mean it! Champion sells food in over 100 different countries worldwide! But success has never clouded them from their core values: to provide only the best for our furry friends. In fact, the next time you hear us talking about food that’s “biologically appropriate”, you can thank Champion! After decades of cheap, unhealthy pet food made with sketchy ingredients (seriously—James Spratt, inventor of commercialized kibble, refused to tell anyone where he sourced his “dried gelatinous parts of Prarie Beef”…we still don’t know to this day!), Champion changed the game by formulating their meals with ingredients that fit animals’ needs rather than using stuff that could be cheaply mass-produced.

Champion acts as an umbrella for two different brands: Orijen and ACANA, who are known for their meat-first recipes that mirror what your pet might eat in the wild. Just like there are different types of healthy diets for humans, each takes different (but equally healthy!) approaches to getting your cats and dogs the nutrition they need to thrive.

Orijen’s meals are all about mirroring exactly what your pet’s ancestors and wild counterparts eat: meat! They take what they refer to as a “wholeprey” approach in their recipes, meaning the entire protein is used, rather than just certain bits. Not only does this offer important vitamins that your pet can’t get from meat alone—bones, for example, are rich in collagen, which is great for joint-support, while organs like the heart are high in taurine—but it cuts down on waste, making it a more sustainable way to prepare food.

Orijen’s kibble recipes contain some of the highest amounts of meat that you can get anywhere in dry food, and their wet meals are a great way to get the same great ingredients as Orijen’s dry and freeze-dried meals while getting extra hydration in your pet’s routine. If freeze-dried is more your thing, then you’ll definitely want to check out their Regional, Tundra, and Original varieties made with humanely sourced, hormone-free proteins made to be shelf-stable to give you the benefits of raw food with the convenience of kibble…and yes! Their treats are just as healthy (and tasty!). Their bite-sized freeze-dried snacks are as high in protein as their meals and appeal to dogs and cats alike.

ACANA takes a similar approach to Orijen—they also formulate their meals using the entire animal—but they also have the added benefit of adding in healthy, organic fruits and veggies. Ingredients like squash and pumpkin provide gut-healthy vitamins that are great for supporting your pet’s digestion system while also being easier on dogs with food sensitivities. Cranberries are also present to keep your pet’s urinary system healthy while apples provide tons of vitamin C, vitamin A, and fiber!

Like Orijen, ACANA comes in dry, wet, and freeze-dried varieties, with the added bonus of also having delicious low-cal biscuits! They’re limited-ingredient, packed with protein, and great for snacking or training—plus, pets love their CRUNCH!
