The Foods Below Are All Good To Test Your Dog’s Tolerance For Various Ingredients.
Remember every dog has different tolerances and reactions to ingredients.
Instinct Grain-Free Chicken Meal Dry dog Food by Nature’s Variety 12.1 lb Bag
“I trade off foods or mix them for my dogs so they get a nice variety, to prevent boredom, and to better insure my dogs are getting good food/nutrition so I also buy Instinct Chicken, Orijen Red Meat, Evo Red Meat, and several others. Will try Ziwi Peak at some point — it is dried and expensive, but the ingredients can’t be beat. I prefer US-sourced food and toys and products for my dogs — and I DO NOT BUY FROM THE MANUFACTURERS THAT MADE AND SOLD POISONED DOG FOOD AND TREATS WITHIN THE LAST 10 YEARS!! BE good to your dogs and be sure you check out the food / toy manufacturer on FDA.GOV and reputable dog-centered food sites.”
My dog will eat it any time – despite being the picky eater.
Good for skin and coat
Good for sensitive stomach
Easy to make a quick switch
Easy to store if you do not have food container – has zip pack lock
Easy to contact the company and have your questions answred by owners
Website offers feeding guidelines – which is pretty awesome – tells you how to combine different types of food.Giving this food to my dog makes me feel good. I never see leftovers in his dish anymore.
Finally, the food ranked 5 stars in most of the websites I reasearched (and i spent a lot of time looking for quality dog food) so it gives me piece of mind.Finally – you get what you pay for.”

I’ve done hours and hours of homework on high quality, grain-free dog foods. From product analysis, kcal analysis, ingredients, customer reviews, professional reviews, company recalls – all of it… I have become a mini-expert in the field.I was pushed into becoming an expert because my yellow Lab kept having seizures and I couldn’t figure out the source. I finally learned it was her food, which was the most expensive store bought brand my local Sams Warehouse carries. I thought I was giving her the best, it looked fresh and rich, but it turns out it was just absolutely terrible food. My black Lab also had terrible skin allergies, to the point where I would get a small rash on my skin if he laid next to me on the couch for more than 5 minutes at a time. I had no clue it was because of the food. But it was!Since having that epiphany and learning so much about dog food, I’ve always made sure to feed them the highest quality grain free food I can buy. This Taste of the Wild (TOTW) fits the bill very nicely, and they love it. Since switching to a grain free diet, the yellow lab has not had any more seizures in over a year, and the black lab has the silkiest coat you’ve ever seen and his skin allergies are completely gone.
They are on 2/3rds dry and 1/3rd wet combination. Contrary to what I had previously been raised to believe, a wet diet is not bad for dogs but in fact is superior! I use the combination to save money .

I have been feeding TOTW to my Italian Greyhound-Terrier mix for over a year now and I have nothing but good things to say about it. First, for all of those wanting to feed their dog grain-free, but struggling to pay Orijen prices, TOTW is the solution. TOTW is definitely the most cost-effective grain-free food I’ve been able to find.For all of those fearful of the use of fish meal and the possible threat of ethoxyquin, it appears that TOTW customer service have confirmed that the particular ocean fish meal used in TOTW is, in fact, ethoxyquin-free. Here is the link to that information and a step-by-step analysis of the ingredient list.[…]
After getting my dog from a rescue, feeding him TOTW has helped him reach a healthy weight and an active lifestyle. The vet has repeatedly noted how good his weight is, how great his coat looks and how well muscled he is.
TOTW, with its high protein and fat content (fat is an essential part of a healthy diet for our four-legged friends) is a great, cost-effective grain-free option. However, those switching from grain kibbles need to be slow about switching their dogs to this kibble. TOTW and other grain-free foods are much richer and a 5 to 7 days slow transition will yield the best result.
Is TOTW for every dog? Probably not, every dog reacts differently to different food and if you have a small breed, I would tend to focus on the lower protein content of the Pacific Stream formula rather than the High Prairie or Wetlands Formulas. I do, however, think TOTW can be a great option for a lot of dog owners. If you’re interested in starting to feed grain-free and holistic dog food, TOTW has worked great for me and my dog.
