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.

I have recently found out that my labordoodle  may have an allergy to chicken. Do you have a food that is not grain free that does not have chicken as an ingredient?

Asked by: Amberg
Hello - Our Ancient Stream Canine Recipe and Ancient Mountain Canine Recipes do not contain chicken. They do include a natural flavor derived from hydrolyzed chicken. The protein is broken down into small particles that are less likely to be recognized by the immune system and shouldn't affect any allergies in your pet. If you're interested in receiving a personalized recipe recommendation for your Labordoodle, please contact our product specialists by visiting

Are your Ancient Grain foods for All Life Stages/appropriate for puppies?  We currently feed High Prairie Puppy, but were looking to switch to something Non-Grain free. 

Asked by: Jamie
I feed the puppy formula of High Prairie because it has small kibble and there is no chicken. When I contacted Taste of Wild before feeding it to my adult dogs, they told me that it was for all stages. My 4 dogs, 2 Shih Tzus, 1 Min Pin/Schnauzer and Cockapoo, love it.

Hi, I have a few questions. what is the digestibility of the food and the method use. where do you source the protein, fat, carbs. are any ingredients human grade or organic? thanks you Jackie

Asked by: jackienikrust
Hello, thanks for reaching out! A digestibility study showed that this formula had a dry matter (total) digestibility of 88.0% Please know, most of the ingredients in Taste of the Wild originate in the U.S. There are critical ingredients, however, that are not available domestically in an adequate supply or with as much quality as our international supply. We do purchase some ingredients from foreign suppliers such as dried chicory root from Belgium. We believe leaving out these ingredients would not be in the best interest of your pet. Additionally, our meat suppliers are USDA inspected for both food and pet food. All of our meats are purchased from food grade suppliers and are certified hormone and antibiotic-free. Taste of the Wild does not use organic ingredients at this time. In fact, there are very few pet foods in the marketplace that contain 100% organic ingredients.

What is your kibble bake temperature? Does your kibble go through a fermentation process or have fermented ingredients?

Asked by: schmees mom
Hello, thanks for reaching out! Our Ancient Prairie Canine Recipe is cooked at 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Additionally, in order to follow AAFCO guidelines, our probiotics are to be listed as dried fermentation in the ingredient glossary. This is because probiotic cells are freeze-dried, which places them in a dormant form; probiotics become “alive” or activated once they are rehydrated in the animals’ GI tract.

I would like information regarding the potential cardiomyopathy risk with TOTW. I started my Akita on High Prairie without grains and switched to Ancient Prairie. This was against my Vet's advice who recommended Hill's, Purina, Royal Canin, and Iams

Asked by: George
Hello and thanks for contacting us directly. The FDA announced on June 27 that they have received 515 reported cases of DCM in dogs as they continue to study potential connections between DCM and all types of diets, including diets without grain (grain-free). 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. Our top priority is, and always will be, to provide pets with quality, safe food that meets all federal and state regulatory guidelines. If you have any additional questions or would like to speak with our team, please call 1-800-342-4808 (8 a.m. - 5 p.m. CT weekdays) or visit Thank you again.

I was all excited until I saw the added chicken that so many dogs are allergic too. Also Pork was your 2nd ingredient, and no mention of it on the label. Does it come in small bites?

Asked by: TaurusLeo
Hello! There are a variety of high-quality proteins in our Ancient Prairie Canine Recipe, and we wanted to highlight roasted bison and roasted venison as unique, complementary flavors and sources of highly digestible protein. We also add pork as an additional source of protein as well as essential vitamins and minerals. All ingredients in our recipes are listed in descending order by weight, and all our recipes are compliant with AAFCO labeling requirements. If you’re looking for a recipe that doesn’t contain chicken as an ingredient, we recommend considering Ancient Mountain Canine or Ancient Stream Canine. Additionally, the kibbles in all TOTW with Ancient Grains recipes are a flat, round disc shape and approximately the diameter of a dime. If you have any questions or would like a personalized recipe recommendation, please contact us by visiting and we’d be happy to help!

What is kibble size of new ancient Taste of the Wild Ancient Grains I have small breed dog and dime size is too big

Asked by: Chris
Hello! The kibbles in all TOTW with Ancient Grains recipes are a flat, round disc shape and approximately the diameter of a dime. Please know, our kibbles are created with dogs of all sizes in mind. We offer a few smaller kibble options from our TOTW line. Pacific Stream Puppy, High Prairie Puppy and Appalachian Valley Canine all have smaller kibbles. Both puppy recipes are for all life stages, meaning they were formulated to meet the nutritional requirements for dogs of all ages and sizes. Appalachian Valley Canine is formulated specifically for small breeds. It is a more energy-dense recipe with higher protein and fat ratios, giving adult dogs the nutrition they need in smaller portions. The kibble in these recipes are barrel shaped and about the size of a pencil eraser.
