I have sample packs of each of the TOTW flavours, so far I've only given him a small handful of 2 of the flavours which he loved.

I made the possible mistake of looking up reviews on-line, and there were many dog owners reporting vomiting, diarrhea and general stomach upsets on this food. Now i know most people mainly write reviews to complain or have a whinge, so i thought i would ask the great people on here to give their unbiased reviews.

ETA: Some of these negative reviewers were accused of being rival competitors by the positive crew lol

I've fed TOTW to three dogs for years. My son has fed it to two dogs, also for years. No problems to report. It's one of the few foods my current dog can tolerate well. I haven't read any reviews and, probably like most people who like the food, I've never written a review.

Yes, I guess a lot of people who are happy with the product wouldn't think to write a review.

Thanks for replying, appreciate it.

We switched to TotW because it was on sale, we didn't even bother with a big transition, and both my dogs were just fine (we switched formulas without bothering transitioning either).

My dogs never did well on ToTW, so I don't feed it often. Only sometimes if I find a deal will I buy a single bag, but I never feed more than 1 bag at a time in the rotation or we start getting shedding/dull coat kind of issues, and large poops. Nothing major, just not something I'd ever keep them on.

I don't think it's necessarily the foods fault, there's just something about it that doesn't work for my dogs. I feed Victor with much more success at a much cheaper cost.

My older dog used to do well on TotW, and I would rotate between the flavors. The only one that didn't work with him is boar. I fed it for years, but switched to a higher quality food (Earthborn Primitive or something like that), and then switched again to what he's on now (Orijen).

So there was nothing wrong with TotW. I just noticed smaller, more compact stool when I increased protein.

I tried TOTW when we first got Pepper, but we could not get the diarrhea to stop so we switched to something else. I don't think there's anything wrong with the food, it was just too rich for her.

I think the lesson here is that, while there are some foods that just basically terrible, there is no one food that's going to work best, or even well, for every dog.

Well it looks like I'm in the digestive upset group :( Nugget did fine with the transition over to the appalachian valley small breed formula, then 4 days in of 100% TOTW he started vomiting a few hours after dinner every single night. So i decided to switch over to the High Prairie which i bought at the same time, and he vomited with that too. I put him back onto one his previous foods, and he hasn't thrown up since.

Mind you, this is a dog who i thought had a cast iron gut. He gets a large variety of different foods, fresh, raw and kibble and has never been sick or got the runs, he is not a upchucker dog at all. I have also not bothered transitioning to new kibble in the past, have always done cold turkey, and he's been fine.

I'm wondering if it's their vitamin mix or something that some dogs just don't react well to??

My dogs did well on it but I'm switching them to a food that doesn't have legumes, because of the whole DCM scare linked to foods that contain legumes.

It's odd though that he would react on day 4 of the food.
