I've got Isabeau on Taste of The Wild. I orginially had her on Wetlands, but she seemed to lose interest, so I switched her to the High Prarie and she absolutely loooves it. I researched foods for a while, and I really think TOTW is a great choice. :thumbsup:

Thanks for that! :) We seem to like it so far. *fingers crossed*

I've been feeding my dog the Pacific Stream formula for over 6 months now and she has done really really well on it. Right now we are using the Wetlands formula because BF grabbed the wrong bag the other week at the pet store. She had zero gas on the Pacific Stream formula but on the Wetlands, the gas has returned so I've been adding a little plain yogurt with every meal.

Prices in my area range from $38 - $46 per 30lb bag. Previously, I had her on Canidae (before their formula change) and I feed a lesser amount of the TOTW so I think the higher cost of it is evened out by feeding less.

I've heard nothing but great things about this food. I plan on switching the dogs to this food very soon.

I have been trying Tast of the Wild as well. I'm still transitioning from Merrick. One thing the guy at the food shop told me when I was grabbing a bag of TOTW was that he was not sure if it was made with human grade ingreideints, but Merrick was. He said somthing about dog foods not being able to state if their foods are made with human grade ingreideints any more. I don't know how knowledgeable the guy is, I haven't looked into it yet, but just thought I'd mention it.

Almost though our first bag of TOTW Wetlands. No problems thus far, and better poops than on Canidae.

I just bought one bag of Pacific Stream Canine Formula and my Brina is doing great on it so far. Better poops than on any food she's been before and she likes this food a lot (well she likes any food actually). But too bad that my Jaka doesn't do well on it.. I made a mistake with switching him on this food too fast and i messed up big time, he had bloody diarrhea for a few days, but it's ok now. It was just a huge difference for him than previous foods that he ate before i got him (pedigree and stuff like that). I'll try feeding him TOTW again, this time with a VERY slow switch on it and if he won't do well on it, i'll try with the new canidae. Sadly we don't have many good dog foods here, we only have Canidae, TOTW and Orijen, but Orijen is too high in protein for Brina. Plus all these foods are VERY expensive here, sadly... TOTW is 84$ for a 30lbs bag, Canidae is 91$ for a 40lbs bag and Orijen is 76$ for a 30lbs bag (6 fresh fish is 91$ for 30lbs)... Damn European prices :po: I always have problems with finding the right food for my dogs...

My dogs did great on the Wetlands, but they were really itchy on the Prairie formula.

I called around and found Taste of The Wild in a city near me for 43.99, I am currently using Kirkland, is that price reasonable for a 30lb bag?
