I'm thinking about switching to totw as well. Right now Zoe eats blue wilderness but she has to be convinced to eat it.... She was obsessed with the bb grain free salmon biscuits though.... So that's why I'm crossing my fingers she will like totw...

So question. A lot of ypu guys are saying your dog won't eat the food that you bought it. Has anyone ever tried to be stubborn back and not switch the food? A dog isn't crazy, he isn't gonna starve himself right?

You are correct. The dog should not starve its self.

I've never had a problem with them turning their noses up (my ultra-finicky cats eat it, too). The Shelties have been on it for years, and the GSD is almost 10 months old. But, like I said, I rotate the flavors with every bag. They like the Wetlands formula best, but they eat all the flavors willingly.

I feed my guy TOTW Wild Boar. He was on Salmon TOTW but seems to prefer the Boar. He does not seem to be a picky eater but I too would start with a small bag to make certain they can tolerate it well.

How fun that you finally get your puppy!!!!

Lol I'm not to the point of her refusing food so it's not an issue yet...I'd just prefer to find a foot that she enjoys.

You should check out costcos natures domain grain free food. Great dog food that's only 30 dollars a bag. That and supplement with nupro silver joint and immune support. Paying 50 bucks for a bag of food is silly.

I really do feel the same way. I just want what's best for my dog. But I will definitely check that out. I'm assuming you use this brand?

Yeah it's called Natures Domain it's a Kirkland signature brand. We use it with the sport dogs at the kennel and they do great on it. There's three different protein sources you can choose from. I've been able to switch between taste of the wild that and natural balance with no digestive issues on dogs even ones on the sensitive stomach side.
