When we were asked if we’d like to take the Purina ONE® 28-Day Challenge, we happily accepted! Throughout our 5+ years with Sophie & Oliver, we’ve used Purina products multiple times, and the brand comes recommended by many friends of ours. Below, you will find our personal experience with the 28-Day Challenge, trying out Purina ONE® Natural High Protein Dry Dog Food, SmartBlend True Instinct with Real Beef & Salmon from Walmart.com.
Purina 28-Day Challenge
First off, we loved that real beef was the #1 ingredient. In addition, there are no poultry by-product meals or artificial flavors or preservatives. It is nutrient-dense with a high-protein formula with 32% protein to help support strong muscles and an active lifestyle. You always have to make sure the food ingredients are safe for your pet.

One of the most important steps to take when you are trying out new dog food is to SLOWLY switch their food. Take a look at the infographic below from Purina that shows the correct way to switch your dog’s food.
Participants in the challenge have noticed effects like their dog being more energetic, having healthier teeth, a shinier coat, and brighter/clearer eyes! The weekly observances that Purina suggests you will see during this challenge are:
Day 1: Mealtime excitement – they’ll want to eat everything in their bowl.
Day 7: Vibrant Healthy Energy
Day 14: High Digestibility (not applicable to the Dog Healthy Weight dry food or any of the wet food).
Day 21: Sparkling bright eyes & Radiant Shiny Coat
Day 28: Strong teeth, Joints, Muscles, and Immune Health
Here’s what we noticed during our own challenge:
Day 1: Our dogs were extremely excited the second we opened the bag. They couldn’t wait to eat up their food! Their bowls were cleaned out quite quickly!
Day 7: Sophie & Ollie continued to be their normal active selves and definitely didn’t slow down one bit!
Day 21: This week, I did notice subtle improvements in their coats and eyes. The whites of their eyes are very bright and clear!
Day 28: We’ve always used products to keep their teeth and gums healthy, so this one was tough to gauge if the challenge helped, but we definitely didn’t see any negative effects! 🙂
Overall, this was a really good challenge. It shows that our dogs are happy and healthy on different food brands and enjoy their meals! We’re so happy to have our dogs with us daily and can’t wait to go on more adventures with them!
