does anyone feed Tast of the Wild?

Sophie has lost interest in her food. I've been giving her Fromm Gold puppy food. She will be a year old in August so I think it's time to switch. We will be keeping my daughter's Puggle for a year while they are in Australia, and she feeds her Taste of the Wild Wetlands. Has anyone tried this?I figure
it would be easier to feed them the same food, and this one is for all stages and is considered one of the 5 star foods by dog food advisor.
The puggle is on her way across country from California to NC via a pet transport service. She should arrive some time next week. I sure hope she and Sophie like each other.. Sophie likes all dogs but it's still a little stressful, not knowing how this will change things in our house. If I had not agreed to take Izzy she would have been on a plane for 17 straight hours, then put in quarentine for 30 days. I'm not sure she would survive that. When she arrives, l hope some of you will be there for advice.

Are you going to be fostering her or adopting her permanently? Just curious. Our foster Hav, Allen, loves all breeds and sizes of dogs, so it's got a good chance of working out, at least on Sophie's side.

I suggest that their meeting take place on neutral ground, so bringing Sophie out of the house to meet in the driveway, on the lawn, or something will be less threatening to both of them. That's nice of you to keep your daughter's dog for her for a whole year. Things should work out well if your daughter has made an effort to socialize her dog with other dogs. Best of luck to you.

All my beasties are on Taste of the Wild foods - canine and feline. The canine beasties are on the High Praire flavor. Our store only carries that and the Pacific Stream flavors and I couldn't deal with fish breath at the time. :blush:

They all gobble down their food. Jack isn't a picky eater at all.

TTFN,
Pam

I don't feed this but I know several other Havanese people who do and their dogs are in great shape. We kept our son't dog (he's in the service) for several months while they waited for post housing where they could keep the dog. (He's a major in the Army). It worked out fine here. My daughter and her husband had refusal rights and refused several transfers to places where they either had long quaranteens or wouldn't let them bring their dog because she's an American Staffordshire Terrier. They are in the Dominican Republic for at least 2 years, happily with Molly.

I plan to pretend to be taking Sophie for a walk as usual and we just happen to meet Izzy on the street and she comes in and doesn't leave.Should be an interesting year.

We were very happy with the food. Tillie's breeder started her out on Taste of the Wild High Prarie formula and she always did great on it, BUT she didn't LOVE it, she was more of a eat a few kibbles here, a few more later... she never ate her whole 1/4-1/3 cup per meal. Eventually she developed allergies, but if it wasn't for that, she would still be on TOW. good luck and bless you for taking the pug in!! what a lucky dog! I hope it is a smooth transition!

Why not just change to the other Fromm varieties? I feed mine Fromm's Pork and applesauce and the Salmon variety and the Duck and Sweet Potato. They are all thriving on it.

Since I will be keeping my daughter's dog, she sent a 30 pound bag of Taste of the Wild, so I might as well feed them the same, plus it is rated higher than the Fromm so it can't hurt.
