We personally feed Taste of the Wild. Here it is cheaper then Wellness and Blue, about $2-3. But I had feed Wellness before, and out dogs really like it. Never had them turn down the Wellness.

We also tend to buy them from tractor supply.

Good food makes all the difference, we've never had hot stops on out dogs while feeding Wellness or Taste of the Wild.

X2 on getting Taste Of The Wild at Tractor Supply. Tractor Supply also sells "4 Health" brand dog food that comes in a grain-free formula. I think it is a little less expensive than the Taste Of The Wild.

I feed TOTW and my dogs do great on it.

Hey, it looks like there is a distributor near me for TOTW!

I guess I can get that, if it's for the best. (: Which type do you guys recommend? High Prairie?

I usually rotate between High Prairie and Pacific Stream but will buy a bag of the Wetlands formula occasionally just for added variety. They eat them all equally well and I can't tell that they prefer one over the other.

We rotate the TOTW food too, never buying the same kind back to back. 4-Health also is good we feed the 4 health wet food. If you need to save money I think 4-health would be a good alt.

My wife will rotate TOTW based on the picture. Last time they were chasing ducks, this time they're hunting buffalo, pretty funny for a reverse trio of 20 pound terriers. Pet Supplies Plus has the best prices around for dog food, and it's on her way home from work. Never had a problem switching between varieties, no slow transition, just one bag to the next.

After doing a lot of research I switched my WGSD puppy to Premium Edge puppy large breed-I started him on Diamond brand large breed puppy-since I feed Diamond brand cat food and really like it for the cats, but he didn't seem to like it and I can't afford the Blue Buffalo, TOTW or a couple of others of the 5 star brands.

My WGSD just turned 6mo old and weighs 68 pounds-happy, healthy and full of energy.

I feed the Pure Balance-no grain to the adult dogs and plan to feed it to my WGSD puppy once I switch him to adult food at 1 year of age. You can get it a Wal Mart and it runs about $1/lb for the chicken/brown rice-double that for the lamb.

You may have posted this already and I missed it...But what kind of dog/puppy are you getting....

My puppy has changed my life to say the least...lol.....He is my number one buddy...Skipper'D...spoiled rotten best friend....lol....

I don't have a dog, but I feed my cat Blue Buffalo. He never had any healthy problems and he really likes it. I also give him some Wellness wet food from time to time and he absolutely loves that, but it's too expensive for me to switch to it completely.
