About Taste of the Wild Dog Food

The Diet Nature Intended

The Diet Nature Intended

They might not be wolves or coyotes, but today's domestic dogs share the same ancestral cravings. To satisfy these instinctual appetites, Taste of the Wild wet and dry formulas are made with real, roasted meat plus fruits, vegetables and legumes that are chosen for their specific health benefits.

Energy That Lasts

Taste of the Wild is made with premium meats like wild boar; buffalo; smoked salmon and turkey; and roasted bison, lamb, quail, venison and duck. Every formula is grain-free and provides lasting energy with complex carbs from sweet potatoes and legumes. These highly digestible proteins and fiber-rich carbohydrates will keep your pup feeling full and energized throughout the day.

Immune System Support

Immune System Support

Since 70% of your pet's immune system is found in the gut, it makes sense to choose a food that's good for the digestive tract. Taste of the Wild includes prebiotics and species-specific probiotics with bacteria that's naturally found in a dog's GI tract. The proprietary K9 Strain probiotics are added after the kibble is cooked so your dog gets guaranteed live, active cultures that support healthy digestion.

Maximizing Nutrient Absorption

To help your pet's body absorb all of the beneficial minerals in her food, Taste of the Wild recipes have chelated minerals. That means they can easily attach to proteins for absorption during digestion. So your canine pal will enjoy the full value of every carefully selected mineral that these foods have to offer.

Maximizing Nutrient Absorption
Perfectly Balanced Omegas

Perfectly Balanced Omegas

Taste of the Wild gives your pup just the right dose of omega fatty acids in every bite. Marine-sourced omega-3 comes from salmon oil, smoked salmon or ocean fish meal, or a combination of these ingredients. Omega-6 from plant sources balance out the omega-3s, and they work together to help maintain your pet's skin and coat health and to support overall wellness.

Ingredients for Better Health

The powerful superfood trio of blueberries, raspberries and tomatoes can be found in every delicious recipe, along with their immune-boosting properties.

TOMATOES and TOMATO POMACE: Help support overall health by providing vitamin C, soluble fiber and rich in concentrated lycopene, a premier antioxidant.

BLUEBERRIES: Antioxidant-rich superfood that's full of flavor and loaded with vitamins C and E, healthy carbs, dietary fiber and manganese.

RASPBERRIES: Delicious berries packed with potassium, manganese, copper, iron and magnesium, and they also provide fiber and antioxidants.

  • kept his weight down

    By on

    I have a dachshund mix so it's important to keep his weight down. I was feeding him a different variety of taste of the wild but his weight shot up from 15 lbs to almost 20. I thought it was a combo of Him getting a little older and my 6 year old. But I cut his food way back and had a chat with my son about sharing with the dog and he still wasn't loosing weight. To boot he would look at me like a stole something from him every time I fed him. I switched him to this food and he's ready for swimsuit season even with me bring his food back up to where it was. Best food for your little friends plus he doesn't gag on the kibbles like he sometimes would with the other food.

    Put my larger pitbull of taste of the wild High Prarie, which they all love,so I figured I would try to find a type that my small dogs could have because TotW has some of the best quality ingredient, high protein, grain/additive free & responsibly produced dog food I have been able to find-so I found this one for small breeds-i need ao.ething for seniors too, but figured could try it or mix it with their senior needs food. Needless to say they loves this one too! So I now off & on buy a bag & I just mix it with their Nutro Ultra Senior Small Breed Food & wallah!

  • Really good quality food! Came the next day!

    By on

    I actually do feed my dogs a raw diet, but it is always good to have really good quality food around and throw it in there, so that they get the best of both worlds (whereby I am never a great fan of any commercial dog food!) They all seem to like it and are all regular afterwards. As long as the ingredients are limited, my dogs (got 5) will get this and other varieties of this brand as well as Blue every now and again. Also, the food came the NEXT DAY! We live out in the country and I assumed it would take around 3 days+ for it to get here... but no. Great Job! Thank you!!

  • Going back to the Yellow Bag

    By on

    I ordered this because of being small bites but unfortunately my pups did not like it. So here I am with a almost full 15# bag that will be donated to our local Humane Society. My dogs love the yellow bag even though it has larger bites but I guess its not that much bigger than small bite size. At least I know my dogs will eat it.

  • small breeds need small breed food

    By on

    I adopted my dachshund from a rescue. They were feeding a good quality food but for all dogs. My friend who has small dogs recommended your food. My dachshund was always was looking for more food. With the small breed she was more satisfied and she is developing muscle mass which she needed. Her poos are so much smaller. Thanks for great product.

  • My dogs LOVE it!

    By on

    This food seemed "fresher" than other dry kibble we have used in the past. My pack of Poms inhaled it the first feeding and it hasn't stopped. We've noticed less waste and sustained energy. This is a great option for a mid to higher grade food that is cost effective. We are continuing to try different flavors with the same brand and will report on any variations of coat or skin after we have used it for a couple of months. So far, couldn't be more pleased :)

  • Great food for small dogs!

    By on

    My 14-lb poodle mix loves this food and finishes every bite. The transition from his previous food was quick and easy, without the slightest trace of upset tummy. He loves the small kibble size and so do it. Great product.

  • Great for small pups

    By on

    Our "Little Girl" Blue Heeler is only 25 lbs and full grown. She can't handle regular kibble so the size on this kibble is great. She loves the taste and no tummy issues.
