Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hound-approved! My 2 Dachshunds are fairly easy to please, but my 2 greyhounds tend to be selective. I usually rotate food and flavors, just to keep the big guys happy. Looks like Southwest Canyon will be rotated in frequently since they all approved! Both greyhound seemed to really enjoy this new flavor and showed me empty bowls to prove it. It's not to heavy on calories, which is great for the doxies; and it's strong on protein, which is better for the greyhounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Doggy!! Happy Mommy!! I have three Shih Tzus. Two are very healthy but one has food allergies and is an incredibly picky eater. After four years of vet assistance trying to find something that wouldn't cause my dog to vomit or break out in a rash, they recommended Taste of the Wild. We tried multiple flavors but it was the Wild Boar that my boy got excited about! He literally does a little happy dance when I fix his breakfast every morning. He's a super picky eater and wont touch the other flavors but he loves Wild Boar! We've been using Taste of the Wild for over three years now and very rarely have an allergy incident (young guests sometimes sneak him table food). This is a wonderful product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more skin issues Our first dog Trixie started getting a skin condition where she had little patches throughout that were very itchy. We took her to the vet, they gave her a cortisone shot. We did some research & found that dog food with grains in it can possibly cause allergic reactions, chicken as well. So we tried Taste of the Wild. Within a week, her skin improved. We feed this brand to our current dog, she has not had any issues at all. This dog food is amazing! I will not use any other brand!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but not for our pup Our pup didn't do as well with this blend as she did with the Sierra flavor. Her BM's got quite soft when she was on the Southwest flavor, and firmed right back up when we moved her (back) to the Sierra. After some trial and error we are thinking she might not do well with chickpeas, so if your pup isn't liking this one try one of the flavors with sweet potatoes. Worked for us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dogs LOVE this food !!! I have three Corgi's, they use to eat another brand of dry dog food, Grain Free. It has way to much sweet potato's and potato's in it. No more scratching and chewing on their feet since we changed to TOTW!!. They are all Happy and Healthy, loving this food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No add-ins needed My 6 month old GSD loves this flavor. I would always need to add something to her dry food like cottage cheese or she wouldn't touch her food but with this flavor she can't want to dig in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dogs have been eating it for years I have been feeding this to my 4 dogs for about 5 years now. They all love it. I know that I'm feeding them quality food that is good for them, and they're eating food they really like. Win-win! I recommend TOTW to a lot of people I know that have dogs - all my family members feed it to their dogs as well!

What formula should I use for an overweight retriever?

Asked by: Marie
Hi, Marie. We do not have any formulas specifically designed for weight loss. Our lowest calorie and fat formula is Sierra Mountain Canine, which contains 15% fat and 338 kcal/cup. You will likely need to feed about 10-20% less than the amounts listed in the feeding guide for each formula. We recommend consulting with your veterinarian to help determine your dog’s nutritional needs
