Default Dog food question?

Does anyone know anything about "Taste of the Wild" dog food? The manager of my local pet store recommended it as a great dog food for half the price of Blue Buffalo. Any ideas on this?

Its a pretty high quality food. I thought it was more expensive than blue though. My boyfriends husky is on blue but hes had samples of TOTW and loves them. I personally stay away from it because it is a Diamond food product which has had recall issues. I believe there are a few users on here that still use it despite the recall so Im sure they can tell you more about it.

I always recommend the core wellness small breed! My babies love it! And it's not crazy expensive. Also it's grain/corn free!

A lot of people I know with bigger dogs feed taste of the wild. It is a good food (as far as kibble goes) that is not too expensive and a lot of dogs do well on it.

Ditto,
when it first came out we used it alot on rescues we took in to get them on better quality food it worked great and the dogs did very well on it, most of the diffrent varietys have high protine, so if its a dog that cant handle such high protine dont use it but for those whom cant afford a top quality food thats more expensive "Taste Of The Wild" will work as its not to costly. My daughters pug was on garbage food when she got it as a pup and she was sick also we switched her to TOTW and she did real well on it after the adjustment period and her health and coat imporved greatly. No matter what food you feed theres always gona be recalls someplace down the line, even with human food they get recalls as well, just keep a eye on whats going on and your lot bag numbers, dates and such.

I feed TOTW to my border collies and they do great on it. They love the taste (Although they aren't picky at all! Never met a food that they wouldn't eat with gusto!) and have beautiful coats with lots of energy. Price-wise it's been a pretty good deal at around $37 for 30# but it has recently increased to about $45 for 30#. For me that feeds 3 border collies for almost exactly 4 weeks.

I know Diamond has had a recall but a lot of manufacturers have, including human food manufacturers, so if I was to stop eating food and feeding food from everyone that has ever had a recall I think I would have a hard time! I just try to be sensible.
