I have a one-year-old German Shepherd who only gets excited about food when I eat the kind meant for humans at the kitchen table. If any of you have a pupper who’s super nonplussed by regular ‘ole dog food, you probably feel me. Eventually, she’ll eat, but she does it with the enthusiasm of someone filing their taxes. Something necessary, but let’s get it over with. I’ve gone through countless brands of dog food (Purina, Kirkland, Victor, Hill’s, etc.) and have even mixed in real bits of chicken and pumpkin puree (she’ll just eat the chicken and pumpkin and struts away), and nothing has really done it for her.

Until I ordered a bag of Wag (say that five times!) because I was shopping on Amazon anyway, and noticed that they’re having a 40 percent off promotion. I have a Prime membership, so it got delivered to the house two days later, and I gave her a scoop (mixed with her old food as to not shock her GI), interested in how she’d react. Reader, she liked it! *Using Life cereal kid commercial voice* “She likes it, Hey, Sasha!” She’s been eating the lamb (no grains added) variety for a few weeks now, because we found that’s what’s best for her sensitive tummy. It’s the first time in a while that she comes sprinting to the kitchen when her big old Yoda ears hear me crumpling the bag with my scooper. She’s happy, she’s healthy, and she’s full of her normal, shepherd energy.

Wag Dry Dog Food, 35% Protein, No Added Grains (Beef, Salmon, Turkey, Lamb)

If you’re into saving money (and what mom isn’t?!), you’ll love this dog food from Wag, which is Amazon’s own line of pet products. One of the big perks is its “subscribe and save” option, where you’ll save up to 10% if you order bulk dog food to be delivered every week or month (and you’ll even get 40% off your first order as a bonus!). As far as the ingredients go, most Amazon reviewers are super happy with the quality. One wrote, “We are a bag in and no adverse reactions. I have a 10 year old boxer with a very sensitive stomach so I was really worried about switching him. I compared all of the ingredients of Wag to what I was feeding and the comparison held up, plus, Wag doesn’t have a couple of questionable ingredients that the other food had (that affects kidney function). After the initial change over, the boxer has not had any stomach issues or excess gas, which was a problem with other foods.” With real Australian lamb as the main ingredient (plus a mix of vegetables like lentils and peas, extra supplements like vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytonutrients; salmon oil and flaxseed provide omega-3 fatty acids, including long-chain DHA) your doggo will reap the benefits of this nutritious kibble and love every bite of it. If you’re wondering where the heck the food is made (you’re a mom, and that is your job!) know that Wag’s food is made in California at a family-owned facility that prioritizesquality ingredients over profit, so rest assured your pup is getting the best of the best. Plus, vets have given Wag their input, so your pup’s health is always, always at the top of mind when formulating kibble. **PSA: You can save 40% on Wag dry dog food (5 lb) trial size bags until 8/31 and 40% off your first order of Wag dog food or treats until 9/30.**

I have 4 dogs and we are 4 for 4 for them liking this. When the bag arrived I opened it and one of the dogs actually started eating straight out of the bag, he has never done that with the other food we were feeding.

To everyone who is saying it is pricey, I am wondering what food you were feeding. A good food isn’t cheap, and Wag saves me $30 per bag over what I was feeding and I feel confident feeding Wag to my fur kids. I did the research, I did the comparisons, and I am happy with Wag.”

Another commented that not only did her dog love the food, but months after switching over, she noticed how shiny her doggo’s coat was:

“My dog loves this food! She had been eating blue Buffalo for years and had food allergies and a sensitive stomach. after I received the food, I realized that I really hope my dog likes it because you get a ton of food it’s a pretty large amount. Luckily, my dog is excited to eat it, and has healthy Doo doos after. Transitioning her to this food was easy after 2 days. Will be by in again as it is a great food for the ingredients in the price and my dog seems to like it.

Update since original review: this is our 3rd or 4th order of WAG food, and her fur coat is SHINY!! I’ve never seen her fur coat so shiny before. She looks beautiful it’s got to be the food! I added pics of her fur so people can see.the shine coming off her fur. It looks healthy!”

If you’re curious, but not sure about committing to a full-sized bag, you can always purchase a trial-sized one. If you ever have any questions about dog food and nutrition, you should always ask your vet (we’re no pros here, we just love our furry babies). And what works for one dog, might not work for the other, so just be sure to do your research.

For the days when it slips your mind and you’re ordering last minute, make sure to sign-up for Amazon Prime to get free two-day shipping! Prime members also have access to tons of Amazon deals (pet and human-related) for only $12.99 a month or $119 a year. Make sure you and your pupper have everything you need, whenever you need it.
