28lb., 14lb., 5lb.Southwest Canyon Canine Recipe with Wild Boar is rated out of 5 by 97.Rated 5 out of 5 by Heather from My bassets dance twice a day for Southwest Canyon. Darlene LOVES her Southwest Canyon. When choosing a food for her, my first acquired basset hound, six years ago, I wanted to give her quality food that was grain free. I researched for days and this is where we ended because of the ingredients and nutrition packed in the bag. I do add fresh berries and veg to keep it interesting because I am a spoiler, but the good thing about TOTW foods is that I don't have to worry about their nutrition if I don't have time to chop some spinach or banana for my sweet hounds. They literally dance a jig when it is dinner time. Thanks, guys! Also -- LOOK AT HER SILKY COAT and watch the video of her dance routine she does for a bowl of TOTW!Date published: 2018-04-22Rated 5 out of 5 by Angela from Happy Doggy!! Happy Mommy!! I have three Shih Tzus. Two are very healthy but one has food allergies and is an incredibly picky eater. After four years of vet assistance trying to find something that wouldn't cause my dog to vomit or break out in a rash, they recommended Taste of the Wild. We tried multiple flavors but it was the Wild Boar that my boy got excited about! He literally does a little happy dance when I fix his breakfast every morning. He's a super picky eater and wont touch the other flavors but he loves Wild Boar! We've been using Taste of the Wild for over three years now and very rarely have an allergy incident (young guests sometimes sneak him table food). This is a wonderful product!Date published: 2017-11-16Rated 5 out of 5 by Greyhound Hotel from Hound-approved! My 2 Dachshunds are fairly easy to please, but my 2 greyhounds tend to be selective. I usually rotate food and flavors, just to keep the big guys happy. Looks like Southwest Canyon will be rotated in frequently since they all approved! Both greyhound seemed to really enjoy this new flavor and showed me empty bowls to prove it. It's not to heavy on calories, which is great for the doxies; and it's strong on protein, which is better for the greyhounds.Date published: 2016-09-28Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from My dog's top favorite brand and flavor Jago started out with the boar as a 1 year old and has loooved it ever since. I have gotten him other flavors and he looks at it and grunts and so I have to give whatever flavor I purchased him to the other animals in my house to eat anything and get him the boar. He loves this one along with the fowl these are the only two he will eat he will not eat any other flavor he's the most pickiest German Shepherd Of My Life whatever makes him happy I guess I recommend this brand and this flavor 10 out of 10 to anyone who has a very picky animal it's very easy on their stomach helps bowl movements definitely keep the energy up and helps him sleep at night. It's pretty pricey but honestly I just want the best for my pupDate published: 2020-04-24Rated 5 out of 5 by Shotgunrider_ from Our 3 dogs wouldn’t have anything else We have been feeding our 3 large dogs Taste of the Wild for over 6 Years. We have tried other grain free dog foods but Taste of the Wild is the only one that stays fresh until the end, we have never found mold and the food always smells fresh, not stinky. We also love the compassionate price points that keep Taste of the Wild much more affordable than other grain free dog foods.Date published: 2018-04-17Rated 5 out of 5 by RJBharris from No more skin issues Our first dog Trixie started getting a skin condition where she had little patches throughout that were very itchy. We took her to the vet, they gave her a cortisone shot. We did some research & found that dog food with grains in it can possibly cause allergic reactions, chicken as well. So we tried Taste of the Wild. Within a week, her skin improved. We feed this brand to our current dog, she has not had any issues at all. This dog food is amazing! I will not use any other brand!Date published: 2016-10-10Rated 5 out of 5 by SunE Belle from My rescue beagles are crazy for TOTW! Arrrrooooo! I’ve been feeding TOTW for years! They really love all the formulas!!Date published: 2018-04-22Rated 4 out of 5 by Chris from Good, but not for our pup Our pup didn't do as well with this blend as she did with the Sierra flavor. Her BM's got quite soft when she was on the Southwest flavor, and firmed right back up when we moved her (back) to the Sierra. After some trial and error we are thinking she might not do well with chickpeas, so if your pup isn't liking this one try one of the flavors with sweet potatoes. Worked for us.Date published: 2017-10-03

The food should be kept in a cool, dry location as excess heat or moisture may cause the nutrients to break down. Leaving the sealed bag out for short periods of time, such as in a delivery, should not affect the food.Date published: 2022-07-29
