I feed my Doge De Bordeaux taste Of The Wild exclusively. She has been on this adult dog food since she was 8 weeks old and is thriving at 7 months weighing 80 lbs with good fat to muscle ratio. Her coat is shiny and no itchy skin problems or yeast infections in her ears. I alternate through all their offerings so she doesn't get bored with the same flavor and she has had no problems switching from one to another. We currently feed her 2 cups 3 times a day which is more than the recommended amount but it appears to satisfy her needs and her weight just about right.
We had a Bullmastiff who lived to be 11 years old and we fed him grain based food. He had constant itching and yeast problems his whole life and I spent hundreds of dollars on vet bills. I wish I had been aware of Taste Of The Wild. I'm convinced his quality of life would have been much better as evidenced in this dog's excellent health and appetite.
I truly believe this food is as good as its advertising touts it to be!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Twooz Not for all dogs.
I wanted to like this, really, I did but
1 - Check out the daily protein requirement for dogs, and what happens to excess protein in the diet. Spoiler: it punches holes in kidneys! Make sure you read up on your dry matter basis and how it can tell you more accurately if your food label is lying to you or else is truly good for your babies.
2 - Spoiler again: the dry matter basis protein for this food is 36% - that is exactly DOUBLE what your most likely couch potato pooch needs.
Great ingredients and I wanted to like it, but Diamond (in case you didn't know, this IS a Diamond product) should be marking this as a food for WORKING dogs ONLY... I'm the dummy who bought it without first doing research!
Most vets would advise you, if they have any training in nutrition at all, to avoid this one due to this problematic formula. Really sucks, my dogs DO love it and I wanted to as well but I can't in good conscience buy something that supports the continuing trend of, "tell them more protein is better, and then mark it up without first taking out the moisture content so it looks like EVEN MORE!"
Bad advertising and not done for the love of your dog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by countrypatsy Great side dish
I have made my own dog food for years, wanted something the dogs would like to help, as I am getting up in years, just trying to make it easier on myself, well the first day, I added the homemade with 1/4 cup of chewy dog food, they ate it. And I did this for a week, now they wont eat the combination, they want the homemade food, and the dry dog food on the side. So if they get hungry in between meals they eat the dry food. So I don't feed them much of the homemade food. About half of what they were getting before. This is the only dog food "Chewy" that the dogs have eaten, all others they turn their nose up at. I have two long hair Chihuahua's 6years old, and one golden retriever/boxer mixed. 13 years old.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NAV4401 My dogs love this better than TOTW Pacific Stream
I have fed my dogs TOTW Pacific Stream (salmon) for several years. They loved it, but then my older dog with skin allergies started getting overweight and lethargic. We switched him to a senior dog food for weight problems and he's also now on thyroid medicine. I foster dogs and currently have an English Pointer mix. She also has some skin allergies. Another foster mentioned TOTW Wild Wetlands because it may work better for her. We received it quickly and now all of my dogs go crazy for meal time! I even switched my senior boy to it and he hasn't been this spunky in years! All skin allergies gone.

Got the salmon flavor for my half lab/pit first. I was so suprised he took to it so well, since he is picky. I got the salmon oil from chewy to put on top to give him some extra flavor. I was having trouble with his alergies, wet paw and yeasty ears, getting ear infection every month.. I did research online and found out it is caused by the sugars in the cheap food turning to yeast. So we stopped with all the cheap food, cut out all the table scraps (carbs) and switched to call of the wild. I read all the glowing reviews, stating how the food has helped numerous dogs from the same type symptoms my dog has. And the topper was how much it helped the dogs coats. Well, he got thru the first bag and his symptoms diminished greatly. We are so happy he didn't have to have another steroid shot because he just wasn't himself after. And the topper, his coat is amazingly soft. I never thought i would see a big difference, but i was so wrong. It really does make a difference to their coats! So if your dog has alergies or you just want a healthier food for your dog, you can't go wrong with call of the wild.
By the way i ordered another bag of salmon and bag of wetlands (roasted foul). He loves each one equally, so now he can have a variety by me switching flavors of food. We can't be more happy for our furry boy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brewer Fills my starving lab!
I have a female lab that is CONSTANTLY hungry. She even resorted to eating another dogs feces to fill her self up. I have tried several dog foods with different caloric values, adding pumpkin, green beans, and nothing helped. I started her on Taste of the Wild and she's not eating poop and not walking around the food bowls licking up left over dust! I am very pleased and will continue to buy it for her!! THANKS CHEWY for making buying her food so easy!

by k9counselor My dogs tend to do well on this
As a breeder, I try to feed my guys great food and also conserve on cost.
I've fed various T.O.W. formulas on and off for years and for the most part, my dogs (a whole herd of whippets) do well on this formula.
I do occasionally experience quality inconsistencies (smell, color, etc.) from bag to bag, but am overall satisfied with this food.
My guys eat it (they tend to be picky), and have firm stools on it, though they are a little gassy on it.
I just wish T.O.W. would switch out their white potato ingredients to sweet potato, as well as making all of their formulas appropriate for all life stages.
But you can't have everything - there's no such thing as the 'perfect' dog food!

They have always liked salmon but when I found both the salmon and the roasted fowl from Taste of the Wild they gobble them both down! And they are grain free which I love
