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.

    I had a little Miniature Schnauzer and I always gave her grain-free dog food but I liked to change her diet up a little bit once in a while. I used a combination of wet dog food. Taste of the Wild was a good quality food and the dog ate it and liked it. It kept her healthy because she was 18 years old. Also, the price was good and I liked the bag it was in.

    We used Taste of the Wild for years and years for a couple of dogs and then for a reason, our breeder had us get off of it for a while and go with a Purina one. I recently came back and I’m on my second bag now since I’ve gotten back to it. I used the puppy formula when the dogs started and I switched around. I used the one with the bison but I don’t do too much with the ones with the fish. We've got Springer Spaniels and they've all been healthy as horses. The dogs like it and I have no complaints. We’ve been happy with Taste of the Wild.

    I have been feeding Taste of the Wild to my dog and cat for many years. They both love their food... and I like that it is grain free and the ingredients are real food. My cat ate both dry and wet but I cannot find the wet so I had to make a change but she is still on the dry and loves it. Both keep their weight where it should be.. have plenty of energy and seem healthy.

    My dog enjoys this dog food. He will not just take any kind. I look for what is in it and the first ingredient is. He is also picky on the treats we give him. I hope this is better to be picky than to take anything.

    For many years, I have fed my beagle Taste of the Wild Pacific Stream. He liked it (of course, beagles will eat almost anything) and it gave him a lustrous coat. It also was recommended by friends. But the last two bags (well within their expiration date) have been problematic. One bag contained oil at the bottom of the bag. I threw the rest of the dog food away. The second bag also had oily food at the bottom. When I tasted it, it was very salty, which explained why my dog was drinking so much after eating. Very suddenly, my dog became very sick, with extreme lethargy, loss of appetite and vomiting. The vet reported bad liver enzyme levels. I am very distressed and concerned that the dog food may have caused the problems.

    Update- We are glad that Loper got over his nonspecific illness and that he's still enjoying eating Taste of the Wild

    Taste of the Wild was recommended as a premium pet food with good ingredients, and we've been using it for our dog for 8 years. He has good energy and is healthy according to the vet. He has a very nice coat too.

    Taste of the Wild was very easy to order and it came very quickly. Nothing could have gone better. Everything was perfect. The dog food that we ordered was a low protein 'cause our 15 year old dog's kidneys are having issues. Our dog is also a little sensitive, so we put a little water with it and it softened it and then she ate it.

    Our Corgi seemed to be fine when we fed her Taste of The Wild. But she had liver problems and we had to take her off.
