Dog Foods


We started out feeding our first Labrador Retriever the Taste of the Wild dog food. It was recommended by the first breeder we purchased our first baby from. This seemed to be a great dog food and there was no problem with diarrhea or other issues when dog foods are switched when young. We wanted to make sure we keep her on the same food the breeder had been giving her. It worked out well for her.

Taste of the Wild Grain-Free Dry Dog Food for Puppy – which has roasted bison and roasted venison. Ingredients: Buffalo, lamb meal, sweet potatoes, egg product, pea protein, peas, potatoes, canola oil, tomato pomace, roasted bison, roasted venison, beef, flaxseed, potato fiber, natural flavor, ocean fish meal, salmon oil (a source of DHA), salt, choline chloride, dried chicory root, yucca schidigera extract, tomatoes, blueberries, raspberries, dried Lactobacillus acidophilus fermentation product, dried Bifidobacterium animalis fermentation product, dried Lactobacillus reuteri fermentation product, vitamin E supplement, iron proteinate, zinc proteinate, copper proteinate, ferrous sulfate, zinc sulfate, copper sulfate, potassium iodide, thiamine mononitrate (vitamin B1), manganese proteinate, manganous oxide, ascorbic acid, vitamin A supplement, biotin, niacin, calcium pantothenate, manganese sulfate, sodium selenite, pyridoxine hydrochloride (vitamin B6), vitamin B12 supplement, riboflavin(vitamin B2), vitamin D supplement, folic acid.

The second Labrador Retriever puppy we purchased from a breeder recommended BLUE dog food for our baby. Again we stuck with the recommended dog food and had no issues with digestive problems after we brought her home.

The BLUE puppy food they suggested was Blue Buffalo Wilderness High Protein Dry Puppy Food. Below is straight from what it says about the BlUE puppy food.
