Pine Forest Canine Recipe with Venison & Legumes
Venison is a highly digestible protein, providing your dog with lots of energy and that wild game flavor. Probiotics and prebiotic fiber help support healthy digestion, while the perfect balance of omega fatty acids, legumes, fruits and protein sources make this a well-rounded, nutrient-packed recipe your dog will thrive on.
Pasture-Raised Venison – Venison, the number one ingredient in this formula, is rich in nutrients and energy, and a highly digestible source of protein.
Species-Specific Probiotics – Healthy digestive and immune systems are vital to the overall health of your pet. Our proprietary K9 Strain Probiotics are developed specifically for dogs and added after the cooking process to ensure viability. Each pound of Taste of the Wild provides 80 million live, active cultures that help support healthy digestive and immune systems.
Legumes – These nutrient-dense ingredients, including garbanzo beans, peas and lentils, are excellent sources of protein, fiber and carbohydrates.
DHA – This omega-3 fatty acid, provided by salmon oil, helps support brain and vision development in puppies, which makes it an important addition to this all life stages formula.
Dried Chicory Root – This source of prebiotic fiber provides fuel for the beneficial probiotic bacteria in the digestive system.
Antioxidants – Legumes and fruits, including peas, lentils, tomatoes, blueberries and raspberries, provide nutrients that help support your dog’s overall well-being, while guaranteed levels of zinc, selenium and vitamin E support the immune system.

We recommend that you keep your dog in ideal body condition and not allow them to become overweight. The amount of food your dog needs can vary based on age, activity level or other food and treats given, so be sure to work with your veterinarian to determine an appropriate weight for your dog, and to make any necessary adjustments to their feeding.

28lb., 14lb., 5lb.Pine Forest Canine Recipe with Venison & Legumes is rated out of 5 by 49.Rated 5 out of 5 by Jahma from Belgian Malinois working dog choice All my Belgian Malinois have done exceptionally well on Taste of Wild. I usually use the Wetlands formula, but have also had great success with the Pine Forest. I switched over to this formula when my current dog retired from active duty because he doesn't need as much fat/protein in retired status. I liked his stool is a bit firmer on this formula. However, you will need to adjust the quantity which I failed to do, so he lost weight because the caloric content is quite a bit less (375 vs. 337). Once I corrected that, he continues to do well and is now regaining lost weight. Coat, skin, eyes, excellent condition on both formulas. Energy and demeanor also excellent.Date published: 2017-06-03Rated 4 out of 5 by PaulG from Potato free I bought a bag from Chewy and all 3 of my dogs enjoyed it. They are picky eaters so I do add wet food to enhance the flavor. I have to do this with all dry kibble. I have fed them several of the TOW varieties. This one has no potatoes', so I like that. I avoid the ones with chicken, only because of allergies. I wish I new more about dog food ingredients. So little information available about how they are made and how ingredients are sourced. My dogs enjoy TOW and I will continue to rotate this product through their diet. The smoked Salmon formula is also good. And the Lamb.Date published: 2016-11-02Rated 5 out of 5 by Anch from Finally a food food that doesn't make my dog itch! My dog is alleric to potatoes and this dog food has none, which is very hard to find in a grain free food. He eats it right up and his coat is shiny. He has stopped licking his paws and itching! I hope they make a canned version soon. Thank you TOTW!!Date published: 2016-09-26Rated 5 out of 5 by jess_in from Excellent food! My Golden Retriever loves it. I like that the venison is a lean protein, and that the formula has no potatoes. The vet tech recommended Taste of the Wild, and this formula keeps my dog's coat shiny and doesn't cause weight gain. I do feed much less than the bag recommends, as my girl isn't very active. She weighs 68 pounds and gets 1 cup twice a day.Date published: 2017-04-21Rated 5 out of 5 by krazybird from Great food! My dog loves this food! Glad to find a great quality food without the use of potatoes for my dog, as potatoes seem to be the cause of her butt glands not being able to express itself properly.Date published: 2016-10-18Rated 5 out of 5 by Kings Peak BackcountryLLC from Best food on the market! I run professional hunting dogs and when I feed them Taste of the Wild dog food, the difference in their performance is very obvious. They can keep going longer and have a faster recovery time to be able to hunt again the next day. I would choose this food over any other brand on the market.Date published: 2016-10-18Rated 4 out of 5 by Tglo1210 from My Dog seems to like it! I was giving my dog the yellow bag. Boar and venison I think. Little did I know until I read the reviews for this food that she had allergy to potatoes. Although her energy level picked up dramatically she was licking her paws ALOT and her annual glands were leaking fishy smells. As soon as I changed her to this formula she doesn't lick as much and her annual glands are not leaking anymore.Date published: 2016-12-06Rated 5 out of 5 by Pitbullheart112 from My dogs love this I have pit bulls and chihuahuas. They all eat Taste of the Wild and love it. They are healthy and shiny. As a groomer I have to say their skin and coats are beautiful.Date published: 2018-04-21
I have a 10 lb small dog and also a 10 lb 13 week old puppy. I'm trying to find something that I can feed both of them so that I don't have to keep buying two different types of dog food. Is this one good for both or would you suggest another type?Hi, Angela. Our Pine Forest Formula is a great choice for dogs at any life stage. With venison as the main source of protein, your pet will have a highly digestible, heart-healthy protein that provides the necessary nutrients to support strong bones and muscles. Like all Taste of the Wild formulas, Pine Forest is grain-free and supplemented with vegetables and fruits and includes probiotics to support a healthy immune system.Date published: 2020-02-04

my dog is 4 and eats 2cups a day, no treats but gained weight. She eats high prarie, would this kind be more likely to help her lose a few lbs and maintain? She has alergies and does well on venison. Hello again. While our Pine Forest Canine Formula is a great formula, it is contains the same amount of calories per cup as High Prairie. In order for your dog to lose weight, you will need to decrease the total amount of calories she eats per day. We recommend trying a leaner formula such as our Sierra Mountain Canine Formula with Roasted Lamb. It is our lowest calorie formula with 338 kcal/cup versus 370 kcal/cup in High PrairieDate published: 2017-09-23
My dogs are pretty active dogs. We make sure they are outside a good chunk of the day but with winter coming along they are inside more and more. I have a lab that packs on fat easily. What is the best line that helps control weight?Hi Katie. We’re glad you’re thinking ahead! We suggest you continue to feed the current formula, following the feeding guide. If your Lab’s weight becomes an issue, transitioning to formulas recommended for less-active dogs such as Sierra Mountain or Pacific Stream might be beneficial. They are slightly lower in protein and fat than other Taste of the Wild recipes.Date published: 2018-09-08
