What's Good at Trader Joe's?: Trader Joe's Dog Food...For People
Trader Joe’s Kibble Dog Food receives the Advisor’s second-lowest tier rating of 2.5 stars.
When it comes to canned dog food I leave it up to my four legged friends to pick and choose what I buy; they are the ones that are eating it and if they love it then I will keep buying it. When I was given a couple of cans of the Trade Joe's canned dog food by a friend I was curious to see if they liked it or not and if all three of the flavors would pass their taste test. I only make it to Trader Joe's about once a month unless it is a special trip for an item that I can't get anywhere else.
While they loved the beef dinner version the most, they showed a little bit of enthusiasm when I first added this to their dry dog food. The cans are over twenty ounces and divided up between five dogs (more if I have dogs that I am fostering) the can is usually completely empty. If you only have one dog and it's a medium size breed you can refrigerate the unused portion but I strong suggest letting it come to room temperature before you feed it to them.
Since I add this to dry dog food and don't feed it to them straight it's always interesting to see their initial reaction; for the chicken dinner they sniffed, tasted and sniffed again. They are used to getting chicken when I shred it and hand feed it to them as a treat but most of the time they won't eat canned dog food with a chicken flavoring or chicken chunks. They will eat it but the beef dinner remains their favorite of the three.
It goes without saying that the only place to get this is Trader Joe's; if you see another store selling it, even for less, I wouldn't buy it because it is probably outdated. Because the dogs only showed a little interest in this I'll only get one can when I go there just so they don't get bored with the beef dinner version that they really love.

Introduced my dog to Trader Joe's canned food
Just wondering if anyone has any opinions on the trader joes canned and dry dog food? I didnt have a chance to look at the ingredients of the dry food. I was able to look at the canned ingredients. They dont seem too bad - although not as good as the evengers canned food since that basically consists of whatever meat and water. The trader joes canned food seems to basically be meat and then some other items, some of which i recognize and some i dont.Trader Joe's, a nationwide chain of grocery stores, just announced it was voluntarily yanking all canned pet foods manufactured by Menu Foods from their shelves, even though:
According to the FDA, Trader Joe’s pet food products are NOT the same pet foods that are currently being recalled by Menu Foods.
