At the beginning of February, our friends at Chewy.com presented us with a 30-day challenge to try the new Rachael Ray Nutrish Peak food in the Open Range beef, venison, and lamb recipe. At the beginning of the challenge, I was happy to see that Peak had a lot of the same qualities as the Rachael Ray food I was already feeding the girls. Two weeks into the challenge, Rye's coat was shiny, she was diving into her bowl, and it worked perfectly with some of our puzzle feeders.
Now that our 30 days of trying Peak are over, we're still pleased with it!
The magic wore off a little bit and Rye was less enthusiastic to dive into her meals. That's not really a reflection on the food, though. Rye doesn't understand why anyone would want to waste time sitting still and eating when she could be playing or pouncing on Barley. When I put her food in her Rock 'n Bowl, she was still ready to stay in one spot long enough to finish a meal.
And Barley's fascination with it never wore off. As soon as she'd finish her meal, she'd come over to make sure Rye didn't leave anything behind. She's happy there's still some of the bag left now that the 30 days are over so I can mix it in with her other Rachael Ray food and she can eat some of it, too.
Overall, we're thrilled with Rachael Ray Nutrish Peak Open Range. Rye stayed healthy and happy on Peak. The 23-pound bag we were sent in exchange for our review lasted much longer than 30 days--we still have about 1/3 of the bag left and Rye ate 1 cup twice a day all month.
Rye was really happy that she completed her first Chewy.com challenge with such positive results.
