Ancient Mountain Canine Recipe with Roasted Lamb is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 223.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog is one of the pickiest eaters. And once we find something he likes if we feed it to him too often he gets burnt out and refuses to eat it. He also has to smell all his food for a good 20-30 seconds before eating it, to make sure he wants it. I was shocked when I gave him these crunchies! First off, he gave them a quick sniff, not as prolonged as usual. Then he immediately gobbled it up! And everyday I have him a little of the crunchies until there was no more, and not once did sniff it or pass it down. With no hesitation he gobbled them up everytime, which is very rare for him! I think these might be a keeper!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I received this product to test in exchange for my honest review. While I am not a dog and cannot speak for my pets, I would give this product good marks for the ingredients it offers !! This recipe includes ancient grains like quinoa and chia which is a nice alternative to corn based dog foods. I have a teacup poodle who is 11 and a 6 year old Japanese spitz. Id say this is a great size for small/medium pets but Id keep in mind your dogs age - my Japanese spitz (who in retrospect eats anything) had no problem with eating her share but my teacup poodle didnt really show any interest. Maybe due to how hard it is as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Our Dogs Love It I have been feeding Taste of the Wild for many years. My previous 2 dogs were on grain free and loved it and did well on it. My current Dogs are on Ancient Grains and like all of the flavors, they really enjoy it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We have two German Shepherds (well, one May be part Maligator, but anyways...) and they love trying new food. One is a senior/geriatric dog and the other is under 2, so they both need the best nutrition they can get. I tested the Taste of the Wild food on them separately and well, they both loved it! To them, it was a treat. Usually you have to entice them to eat dry food, but not with Taste of the Wild! And I like that its made with quality ingredients, so I know theyre getting the nutrients they need!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I gotta say I was a little confused on how I could personally review a dog food. I was giving it to my 4 dogs in handfuls as a treat and they seemed to enjoy it, then again, theyll eat literally anything lol... But there were some positives from this, I have one dog that has food sensitivities and he had started to throw up the food he had been eating, almost nightly. I swapped to a different food and he seems to be better but I have run out... this food was all that I felt comfortable with feeding him and it came in clutch. He seems to be able to handle it pretty well, no vomiting so I might end up getting a bag for him. Kibble size seems fine, he gobbles it all right up and seems to enjoy it. :) thanks Influenster for providing my doggo with a nice dinner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dogs used to eat the original formula of this brand and loved it. To be honest Im not sure why we stopped using it. I would highly recommend this dog food. We have two dogs of completely different breeds (one lab pitbull mix and one total mutt) so finding a food that suits large and small breeds can be challenging. Not to mention my small dog is a picky eater. I received this product and was excited to give it to them. They both gobbled it down and had no adverse reactions after. Ill have to buy a full size bag of this once we run out of our other dog food!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Since using taste of the wild ancient mountain canine recipe roasted lamb I've notice my dog's coat has become so much soft and he has had more energy.

I have recommended so many times and will continue to recommend because the quality is amazing and the fact that it's made with the best quality ingredients that I can feel confident about giving my best friend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog is OBSESSED with the samples we received from Influenster. He was short on his normal food, so we mixed this with his regular food and immediately ate it. Our husky is a bit of a Prince and when we get close to the end of a flavor of his food, he gets bored with it and wants something new. I had never seen him take to a new food so quickly and easily. He never had any stomach problems, got sick, or reacted negatively to the food, but he has a stomach of steel, so that didnt really surprise us.

What is the basis for or against grains in dog food? And Do you have a small bite recipe for for my Havanese with a poor bite?

Asked by: Marie
Hello, and thanks for reaching out! Grain-free diets are great options for dogs that have allergies/sensitivities to grains. Because every dog is different and has varying tastes and nutritional needs which is why we’ve created Ancient Grains recipes that reflect our classic Taste of the Wild flavors. Ancient grains — including grain sorghum, millet, quinoa and chia seed are high in protein, and have been trusted sources of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and omega fatty acids which support strong, healthy dogs at all life stages. Taste of the Wild Appalachian Valley Small Breed Canine Recipe is specifically formulated for small breed dogs. This grain-free recipe features smaller kibble, making it easier for your dog to chew and digest. This recipe is also more energy-dense, meaning it has higher levels of protein and fat so small breed dogs can eat smaller amounts and still meet their nutritional needs. While our Ancient Mountain Canine Recipe was not specifically formulated for small breed dogs, our kibbles were created with dogs of all sizes in mind. If you have any additional questions or would like a personalized recipe recommendation for your Havanese, please contact us at Additionally, we recommend consulting with your veterinarian to determine the best diet for your dog, based on their needs.

please advise as to any action you are taking regarding the "grain free" issue with dog foods....understand that this is not the best feed for dogs....please advise

Asked by: barbara
Hello, Barbara and thank you for reaching out to us directly. Please know our Ancient Mountain Canine Recipe with Roasted Lamb is not grain-free as it includes ancient grains, such as grain sorghum, millet, quinoa and chia seed, which are naturally high in fiber and rich in protein. In addition to our grain-inclusive lamb recipe, we offer a grain-free lamb recipe, called Sierra Mountain Canine Recipe. It's important to note, that to date, the FDA still has not found any science-based causes to link grain-free diets — including Taste of the Wild — to DCM. As they note, it is a complex issue with numerous factors to consider, such as breeds that have a genetic predisposition for developing DCM. We continue to monitor this issue closely and support ongoing research efforts, because our top priority is, and always will be, to provide pets with quality, safe food that meets all federal and state regulatory guidelines.

What TOW K9 dry food would be best for a nearly 12 yr old GSD retiring Military Working Dog with chronic kidney disease. She has been on Hill's Science Diet K/D for years. A vet told me she would need to be on a lower protein diet.

Asked by: Janet
Hello, Janet! First off, our hats are off to your military dog, we love and appreciate the work they do! We’re sorry to hear about your dog’s diagnosis of chronic kidney disease. TOTW does not have any protein restricted formulas for this condition. Please know, while diet cannot cure kidney disease, specially formulated renal diets have been proven to help dogs with renal disease feel better and potentially live longer. We recommend you speak with your veterinarian about the best nutritional options for your dog.
