Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Puppy, Happy life. When we first got our little puppy we went out to Walmart and bought him some purina puppy chow (not proud of that, we didn't know better) It had different shapes and colors and looked like kitty food honestly, after realizing all the dyes and by products involved and besides that our puppy was eating out of starvation not want, we ended up going to our local cal ranch store and getting a small bag of this brand, I have never seen him clean his plate so fast, and after awhile of use he looked amazing, i had googled reviews for this product and got a little scared with it all, some people worried about mold in the food or dogs getting sick, our vet even told us no on taste of the wild and to go to purina, but i dump the whole bag when i get it from the store into a bin and make sure no mold is in it, but i feel like taste of the wild uses real ingredients so this is a possibility, purina probably never gets recalled because of all the fake stuff in it. I don't plan on switching dog food anytime soon, but every dog is different and requires different needs so pay attention to your fur friend and make the right choice for them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Papillon Puppy Loves it!!! I asked a question about the size of the food in the puppy food and received a response promptly. I got my Papillon puppy yesterday and after a 4 hour ride from Bowling Green, KY to Birmingham, AL, the little man was feeling rough. We went to the pet store and I got a bag of the food to try, because he's my third Papillon and I know that they're picky eaters. When I opened the bag he bounced in excitement at the smell of the food. I mixed it with what the breeder gave me, holding back the wet food they said he may need because he might not eat, and he devoured it! I gave him more this morning with his old kibble. He sits or lays with his bowl as he digs in. I'll post again later, but my furball thinks this stuff is the bee's knees!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can’t imagine feeding anything else! Our pup had serious tummy problems after being exposed to giardia and him not being cared for properly in his first home. We battled ridding it over three courses of treatment but ultimately we had him on TOTW and not only he has always looked forward to his meals but he manages a very healthy weight. His coat is gorgeous and he is a healthy, growing dude. (:

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good!!! I stared using Taste of the Wild last week. I had my 5 month old German Shepherd on a different food at first. She didn’t seem to digest the last food as well as the Taste of the Wild. She loves it, finishes her meals in minutes. Easy to order, great ingredients and American made!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Puppy gobbles it up My pup was having issues scratching, itching and I figured it was his food. I had started him on another brand that was chicken based all natural. After discussion with a vet friend they suggested cutting out the chicken and grains. after researching puppy foods I decided to try this Taste of the Wild. My puppy is so happy I did!.. He gobbles this kibble up and to top it off I give him some of the same CAN Food once a day. Watch what you give your pup!. this food isn't cheap for a reason..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, relief! I have recently gotten a new puppy. First issue was getting him to have interest in food and gain weight. We went through 3 different brands before trying this. He also developed super itchy skin, and irregular bowel movements. But since I work in a major pet retailer figured I'd give it a try. Well here we are, almost on to our second bag now:) almost all issues are gone now. And the pricing is really good as well! I'd deff. Reccomend to customers shopping in my store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite part of his day! Milo can’t get enough of the roasted bison and venison. Taste of the Wild is the only brand he’s known. Before taking him home, him and his litter mates were introduced to the salmon formula after being weaned from mama. I was feeding him the salmon for a while and then decided to give the bison and venison a try. That was the most excited I’d seen him! His little butt wouldn’t stop wiggling, he was knocking the food out the bowl! We haven’t turned back since!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Puppy violently ill after eating this food We just bought the puppy food for our 16 week old Goldendoodle. After four days of transitioning her (she was doing no more than 1/2 cup of TOTW), she became ill with diarrhea and vomiting. We have to take her to the vet now to make sure she is okay. I will never buy this food again, and will make sure than my friends and family avoid it at all costs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great until now. My Aussiedoodle, Blake, has been eating Taste of the Wild since he was about 12 weeks old. We have had no problem with it, until now. We just opened a new bag, and Blake has gotten sick from it. First it started with very loose stools, it then progressed to horrible diarrhea and vomiting. He was put on meds and bland diet. As soon as we introduced the food back he vomited. We will be throwing out this entire bag and switching.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed signals I also am disappointed to see a discrepency between the ingredients listed on the bag, and listed on the website; Specifically regarding taurine. I feel like I am being scammed when I go into a store and the ingredients I am specifically looking to avoid are omitted from the bags label. I'm certain this is not a 'new' ingredient and omitting it is not what I'd consider full disclosure to your customers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ONLY Food/Formula my Shepherd Can Eat! I adopted a German Shepherd who was in pretty rough shape. She has some bad food sensitivities, though I haven't found out what exactly she is sensitive to. One brand of grain free food after another just made her itchier and more miserable. She will chew sores all over her body and her ears become smelly and infected. After a couple months of cooking for her, I decided to try Taste of the Wild High Prairie Puppy formula. I chose a puppy food because she needed to put on more weight. This is the ONLY food she can eat without tearing herself up. Plus, she LOVES the taste. I made the mistake of buying the High Prairie adult food, and I thought that maybe the ingredients would be the same, just in different amounts for the caloric needs of puppies vs adults. I was VERY wrong. The adult formula has other protein sources added in that the puppy one does not, which are: chicken, chicken fat, eggs, and beef. Within a day of the HP adult formula, she was back to extreme itching. I had also noticed she really didn't want to eat it, which is unusual for her as she is not picky. So if this formula works for you, and you have a sensitive dog, don't assume that the adult formula would work, because the ingredients are pretty different. I now have another rescue Shepherd, and he is also on this food. He was looking pretty rough on day one, but after feeding this for just a day, he woke up perky, alert, no discharge from his eyes! After a few days, his full coat started to shine. My Standard Schnauzer also eats this, and she loves it, though she is not picky! It is pretty pricey to feed to 3 dogs, 2 of which are fairly large, but I don't want to risk cross contamination for my sensitive girl. I definitely recommend this particular formula if you have allergy prone dogs. I recommend taste of the wild as a brand because they have not had any recalls and my dogs have done well on it. Shiny coats, lots of energy, super healthy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is great. We have been feeding this food to our 6 month old English Bulldog almost her whole life. She loves the taste and I love that she is eating food made of good quality ingredients. Her vet says that her skin is healthy and her fur is shiny! No digestive problems so far with the food. Can’t say I’ll be switching foods for Ellie anytime soon! Thanks, Taste of the Wild.

At what age should I transition from puppy to adult formula? Thanks, Kevin

Asked by: Kevin
Hi Kevin, thanks for your question. We recommend you work with your veterinarian to determine the right time to transition your pet. As a general guide, we recommend feeding puppy food until 10-12 months of age. For giant breeds, between 12-18 months of age is a good time to make the transition to adult food.

I have a 75 pound pit that just turned 1. I also have a 4 month old pit that is 45 pounds (neither of the dogs are over weight). I have been feeding them the same food but now the male is a year old is the puppy food still ok to feed him?

Asked by: Nate
Hi, Nate. This formula will absolutely work for both of your dogs. We recommend you to talk to your veterinarian about the right time to transition your pet. As a general guide, we recommend feeding puppy food until 10-12 months of age. For giant breeds, between 12-18 months of age is a good time to make the transition to adult food. While High Prairie Puppy was developed for growing puppies, it is formulated to meet the nutritional needs for dog of all life stages.

How often do I feed my 4 month old puppy and how much each time

Asked by: Emma1
Hi, Emma and congrats on the new addition to your family!

It can also be found on our website https://www.tasteofthewildpetfood.com/dog-formulas/high-prairie-puppy-formula-with-bison-roasted-venison/.

We’ve put together a feeding guide below for you to consider. 4 months of age, consider 3–4 meals per day 4–6 months of age, consider 2–3 meals per day 6 months and older, consider two meals per day If you have any questions, please contact us by visiting our website https://www.tasteofthewildpetfood.com/contact-us/.

HI, I have purchased this and salmon for my 7mo. puppy but won't eat the puppy version. Only the Adult version which we feed our other dog. Is it okay to feed my puppy adult food if it's the only kind she will eat?

Asked by: AmyCandlin
Hi, Amy. High Prairie Canine Formula was developed as a maintenance diet and does not provide the nutrition puppies need. We would recommend trying our other puppy formula, Pacific Stream Puppy, or one of our all life stages formulas such as Pine Forest, which is a venison-based formula like High Prairie.
