Ancient Prairie Canine Recipe with Roasted Bison & Roasted Venison is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 269.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace of mind for me and a healthy, tasteful food. I started my male Labrador on Taste of the Wild as an eight week old puppy. He was incrediblely anxious to eat his meal even back then. I have continued with the adult “Prairie” blend which he continues to devour. I have researched pet food health benefits for many months now and Taste of the Wild rates very well with most advocate groups, vets, and trainers. Rio is a healthy, strapping 7.5 month old pup. His stools are solid, his coat beautiful, and he is not susceptible to stomach issues. Further, I am retired and this pet food is a good value when stacked up against the other options. In closing, I am very pleased with Taste of the Wild, and will continue to purchase the product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 1 year old pup loves this food! I personally like a little healthy grains in his diet. He always finishes his food and has healthy bowl movements. Im a big fan of the brand and their quality ingredients

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The ingredients are wonderful! I like that they still include grains, as grain-free dog food is now linked to heart problems in dogs. They use quinoa and other ancient grains that are much better for dogs than just the typical corn meal used in dry dog foods. That being said, my dog didnt enjoy it. The kibble is one color and one flavor. My dog, who is very picky, did not take to the food. He likes variety (and will pick out the flavors he doesnt like) I gave this 4 stars because of the quality of ingredients and because another flavor may resonate with my pup more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pour the kibble into a bowl, blink and it's gone. That was my experience with TOTW. My pup wolfed it down so quickly that I almost forgot I gave it to him. I only received two small sample packs which for a 50lb dog is about one day's worth of dog food so I can't speak to its nutritional value. All I can vouch for is that he loved eating it and didnt get sick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My sister and I both use Taste of the Wild, and let me say, it is amazing! Best dog food for its price point. Every batch is consistent, so no tummy aches after buying a new bag. Their fur is lustrous and no dry skin (even in winter) or bad breath. My puppers are picky; I have to rotate food flavors every few months when they get tired of one flavor. Because Taste of the Wild has so many varieties, I never have to buy another brand. This particular variety is high protein, so keep that in mind when selecting a flavor for your pup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I liked how my dog would eat it every time I put in his bowl. He has been picky before, and he wasnt picky with this product. I mixed it with the primary dog food for my dog because he is sensitive with new foods. Usually when new food is introduced to his diet, he would get diarrhea, but he did not get any diarrhea with this brand at all, which is great! There was nothing really I dislike about this product. I liked this a lot, and may possibly purchase this product to give to my dog in the future. I received this product for free for review purposes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog loved these! As you can see in the picture, he could not wait to open the box and chewed the outside too. But once he tried it he liked it even more! He ate his whole bowl in less than a minute and wanted more! The second baggie will come in handy for traveling as it is the perfect size for a meal or two. The ingredients are simple and clean which makes it easy to give him the best of options as he is still growing and needs good quality food. Will definitely keep buying this brand and recommend to try it out!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Im rating this a 4 because my dog seems to like it and she prefers a larger kibble, but Influenster provided such a small amount that I feel I cant write a proper review. Any pet owner knows not to abruptly switch their dogs food so Ive only been able to add partial amounts to my dogs current food so as not to shock her system and upset her tummy. I would be willing to purchase this because my vet recommended we go back on a grain product after being on grain free for years. The ingredients seem good and taste of the Wild is a reputable brand. I think in order to get a proper review though influenster needs to provide enough of an amount to fully test the product. Two small bags that equal 2 or 3 portions of food is not enough to leave an honest review about a product.

Ancient grains I would like to change up to another acient grain instead of feeding the dog same bag all the time. Do I have to slowly introduce new bag over time or can I start feeding right out of the bag? currently feeding Prairie Love it

Asked by: Chris
Hello and thanks for reaching out! Many pets enjoy eating more than one Taste of the Wild recipe. To avoid digestive upset, we recommend limiting your rotation to two recipes and gradually mixing foods over 7-10 days. When you transition between recipes, slowly reduce the amount of the old recipe and increase the new recipe.
