We adopted a dog from a rescue a few years ago and they gave us a sample of Taste of the Wild. We decided to try it with our other dogs as well and they went crazy for it! Our picky eater who would graze on everything suddenly started gobbling up all of his food. I love the limited and high-quality ingredients and genuinely believe my dogs are healthier because of this food. They have shiny coats, lots of energy, and I even noticed a decrease in flaky skin and shedding. I highly recommend this dog food!

    We have been using Taste of the Wild dog food for over 10 years. Discovered it when I had my first Boxer - Jack. He loved it! After we lost Jack, we rescued our second Boxer - Bailey Marie. She was malnourished, heartworm positive and her fur was falling out. After being treated for the heartworm, a diet that includes of Taste of the Wild has helped turn her into a healthy happy girl.

    We use 2 different formulas of Taste of the Wild. High Prairie and Ancient Mountain with ancient grains. My pit mix has the high prairie and is lean muscular with a fantastic coat. My Great Pyrenees mix gets the Ancient Mountain- she has a very sensitive stomach and I’ve tried numerous foods for her and she would always randomly get soft messy stools randomly on them. She has been doing fantastic on Taste of the Wild. We also used to feed High Prairie to our dogs we had in the past. They also did fantastic on it as well. I always recommend it.

    My black lab loves Taste of the Wild. She gets fed twice a day. She'll take any flavor with grain or without grain. She's pretty much addicted to it. Her coat is shining. Her bowel movements are regular as a result. So, I feel like she likes it, but also, I can tell the difference in her body. Our vet also recommended it, which also makes me feel better. That was a good vote of confidence. We've been really pleased.

    I got Pitbulls and Bullies and they have had litters probably twice a year in the last four years. People should use Taste of the Wild. Most of my family use it during the puppy stages and they usually sell the puppies at eight weeks. Occasionally, I give buyers a small bag of TOTW when they buy the puppy and take them home. I tell them that the puppy should be eating that for almost nine months to a year. I add a little water and I use the blue bag. Eating TOTW helps the digestive tract, the muscle intake and the diet. Generally, when the puppies eat the cheaper food, their bowels are soft and running. But when they eat TOTW and better dog foods, they have a solid one.

    My dog is now eating like a dog should. After almost four years he is eating Taste of the Wild venison and duck dry food. He is happy, frisky and looks forward to his meals. Thanks Red Dog Pet Shop for recommending.

    When it comes to Taste of the Wild Pacific Stream dog food, my Lab Goes Crazy over it! I mean he hops around, and drools over it! He has a lot of allergies so I have to be careful what I feed him. Taste of the Wild Pacific Stream dog food is the only one that works for him. If he's happy, and healthy, then I'm happy too!

    Very impressed with Taste of the Wild quality. My dogs love it and have become healthier when I switched. Our Akita had an autoimmune disease and when we switched her to this food she responded well, became active again. Our vet said our Mastiff has never needed any medication or special care and is very healthy at 12 years old.

    My dogs are picky eaters and I have always struggled with buying a food that is healthy and reasonably priced. Taste of the Wild checks all the boxes. It's just the right amount of protein with real fruits and vegetables. It's food that even I would eat, which is another box. Plus, I don't have any issues with my babies not loving it.

    I have three dogs who are healthy and happy... all three get a combination of Taste of the Wild High Prairie Dry Food and the Wetlands Blend. I add a variety of Taste of the Wild canned food to their Dry kibble. Great food..that my dogs absolutely love.
