I have the same problem- I have an Australian Shepherd who weighs 30 pounds on a good day. She yo-yos a bit between 25-30. I'd like her to be closer to 35.
I haven't tried Orijen, but I have had good success with Taste of the Wild. I use the bison for dry, and occasionally give canned of different flavors or brands (natural balance, blue buffalo wilderness). I personally mix in about 40% Blue buffalo Wilderness (duck) because I can get a bag a month free, but the Taste of the Wild is what has done best for me. Also, any time I give her "extras" I don't take away from her normal kibble, like I would with a normal dog.
You may also try the Natural Balance food rolls, I wouldn't feed JUST that but it might be good to give mixed in with the dry (i've grated it like cheese before, she loved it) to entice.
