Peaks and Valleys #Chewy Influencer

We've been partners with Chewy for a long time, trying new products and doing reviews. My dogs have really enjoyed trying a variety of foods and treats and I've discovered some products that have impressed me so much that I've added them to our  feeding rotation. Some products were totally new to me and others were old standbys that we had relied on for years.

Each month when I write our reviews I enjoy sharing our experiences with our choices and most of the time I can highly recommend them. Occasionally we get a clunker but it usually has some redeeming quality to mention. This time, however, I can't give a good review.

For a month we've been trying Rachael Ray's Nutrish Peak Wetland Recipe. The only good thing I can say about this food is that the dogs will eat it, though not enthusiastically.
My dogs usually make a switch in foods pretty easily but I was never able to get them onto just Peak.
There are several issues with this food. First, the food smells awful straight from the bag.
Second, the food gives the dogs very stinky gas.

Third, the stools are large, soft and extremely strong smelling.

At one point, after the second week, we considered donating the remaining food to a shelter, but I was determined to complete the month as I had agreed.

I'm sorry, but I can't recommend this food. If you feed it to your dogs and have different results, I'd be really interested in hearing your experience.

Chewy sent us a supply of Peak to try for a month. It was at no cost to us in exchange for our honest review.

How disappointing. It does look pretty yummy.

I'm actually glad to hear a negative review once in a while, because it means the reviews are honest!

I'm always skeptical of reviewers that never seem to have a bad thing to say about a product they are sampling. So refreshing to see that some reviewers will actually mark a product "not recommended".
