“Best food for my picky eater Parsons Russell Terrier.”

★★★★☆

written by on 18/09/2023

After lengthy looking at different dog foods, we was after some dog food which pur 1 year old loves to eat. We had her on Royal Canin for puppies at first which, even though she would pick at and eat, she would eat now abd again. We changed food to AVA vets recommended food which again kept her healthy and within limits but wouldn't really eat it properly. We changed and mixed it in with the Wagg beef dinner and by gosh she eats everything now. Even though the dog food might have a little less protein in it than the Royal canin and AVA, she loves eating this food. I'd rather have our 1 year old yeating all her food than leaving most of it and filling her up on a diet of biscuits and other protein based snacks. Our dog now has this wagg food with high protein treats and I'm glad to say she's now at a perfect healthy weight. She actually seems alot more energetic I might add. Lol. The 4 stars is only for the nutrients could be a little better compared to the triple priced foods but I guess there has to be a trade off somewhere.

“Good food for Dog”

★★★★★

written by KeithRussell on 20/04/2021

Wagg Complete Dry Dog Food has a wide variety of items at a good price, which is particularly preferred for dogs that don't have any complications, allergies, or special needs. Although it is reasonably priced, the trade-off is that it is unquestionably the highest-quality dog food available.

“Only a hundred years experience so probably don’t know ”

★★★★★

written by windyday on 03/11/2019

My wife and I now have well in excess of one hundred years caring for dogs and as such we find it very difficult to understand the more you spend the better, rhetoric,it’s simply not true dogs require a balanced diet, exercise and love. We combine this with Wagg food and treats, for our family of 3 Afghan hounds and a golden retriever. I was told off one day by a well educated chap who explained to me in huge detail that Wagg was junk food for dogs, we met in McDonalds where he was treating his kids to lunch. I didn’t express an opinion, our newest arrival was collected from the breeder with a combination of raw food and expensive something or other after a few days he was happily weened onto Wagg. But like I say what do we know after all I shop at Lidl for our food. So I say don’t be fooled cheap is not bad and expensive is not good Wagg is what we use for 4 large healthy dogs, I just wish I was as fit as they are

“Absolutely awful, don’t have words to describe!”

★☆☆☆☆

written by Bek1 on 13/04/2019

Gave it to my furr baby, and, literally after a day of him eating it his whole character changed. He was totally anxious, kept jumping every time I touched him, he was full of gas so he must have been so uncomfortable bless him! He was so different and made me sad. I thought the only thing that’s changed in his life was his food, so we tested it. We have him another brand of food for a few days, and he was, completely back to normal. So we have him Wagg again for couple days after that to make sure, and he went downhill again, gassy, distant, and very jumpy. It was for certain the Wagg food that affected him, and I will never ever give him that food again, and will tell everyone I know to never buy it. I don’t know what ingredients are in there that we don’t know about, but the food needs to be banned in my opinion, awful!. We now give him Warrington's which is more expensive but so worth the money, he is his happy self, his stomach is back to normal and loving having my furr baby back to normal

“2 labs 11 and 12 love it”

★★★★★

written by jkShields323 on 01/05/2016

I think dogs are very much like people, some food they like some they don't. My two love this been in it all there lives, good coats, good teeth and a steady bottom if you know what I mean. If I do vary there diet then they have a upset tummy. Now we have a little Shitzu and he's sold on it also. Rescue when he turned up tummy all over the place, started him on it and he's settled down Niicley also. The only thing I would say is the suggested amount on the bags is far to much no matter what size your dog is.

“dog likes it, so whats your problem?”

★★★★★

written by on 16/12/2014

I've tried different foods, some expensive some quite cheap, but we always refer back to this, he empties the bowl, so he must like it, its not expensive, he's healthy, a great coat, good teeth,there's nothing I don't like, but for some reason he doesn't eat the white biscuits in it, he always leaves them, a bit like a kid leaving the sprouts lol

“great food, great value”

★★★★★

written by 194Bryant on 17/07/2014

I was having trouble keeping weight on my GSD then I discovered Wagg :-) she thrived on it, gained weight and lived to the grand old age of 12, quite elderly for her breed. I now have two GSD cross puppies and after trying several other specialist puppy complete foods, Wagg has come top of the list once again. The ingredients are comparable to other more expensive complete foods and my puppies are extremely healthy, lovely coats and very lively. Obviously everyone has their own opinion about what to feed their dogs but I would wholly recommend that you try this food. It wont suit every dog but from my own personal experience, its brilliant

“Best I've ever used.”

★★★★★

written by 86Ramos on 26/06/2014

My Old English Sheepdog seemed to be quite sensitive to different foods, she either had very loose or very dry/ crumbly poo. The only food that suited her was Wagg complete. She used it all her life without any problems and never left any in her bowl. 2 cups and soaked with boiling water and left to cool she loved it. I have just recently acquired a new OES pup who , like my last has a delicate stomach. I have just intoduced Wagg to her diet and already seen a change for the better. Every dog is different and sometimes it takes a long time to find the right food . Just because one is twice the price doesn't mean it's better for your dog. That's my experience of Wagg.

“suits the dog well”

★★★★☆

written by haddyanne on 31/01/2014

Having just watched the channel 5 doc on dog food I have to say I was rather appalled by both sides of the question. We have fed all our dogs Wagg and they were great, healthy, happy and good teeth. The only worry I have is the addition of propylene glysulphate I think (something found in antifreeze) Will carry on as normal and give our Lab brown rice and veg twice a week and Wagg for the rest of the time.

We have been using Wainwrights as our adopted dog came with it - been wanting to change food to something more economical. We are introducing him to Wagg but have read so many mixed reviews on it. I also watched the C5 doc and found it really interesting. Am considering feeding rice and veg as well. Have you ever had any problems feeding your lab Wagg? I've got a cocker.

Dear Mallick9 we have had two labs, a rough collie and a Scottie. They all lived a healthy and happy life dying in their mid teens. Our current dog is a black who is 3 (definitely the last) and we took our daughters advice and fed her Bakers which was a mistake. The poor dog seemed to poo more than she had eaten. Went back to Wagg and have had no problems. She is well, dental hygene great She loved the cooked brown rice and carrots she ate today so will carry on with that twice a week. I am sure your cocker spaniel will thrive just as well..

We've ordered a bag so fingers crossed. Do you feed rice and Veg just on its own on those two days?

Abbey (our Black lab) had brown rice with raw grated carrots plus some cooked broccoli left from yesterday. Gobbled it all up and do be a bit basic her poo was good. We have always fed our dogs wagg but the introduction of rice and veggies seems to work well.Thank you channel 5 hope you are successful with your feeding plan

“Our 14yo Patterdale cross thrives on Wagg!”

★★★★★

written by Humboles on 24/10/2013

Enough of the theory. Our rescued Patterdale cross, Pip, has eaten Wagg exclusively (plus titbits, of course) since he was 8 months old. He's a grey-faced 14yo now, though still very active as my wife runs him several miles daily. And he's been ill just 3 days in his life - through ingesting something foul on his walkies! He's lively, inquisitive, friendly, healthy, his recommended weight, has good teeth, and produces perfect 'poop'. Our family and friends buy ridiculously costly pedigree dogs, spend fortunes on vet's bills, on insurances, on pricey kibbles, then lose the animals before they are 10yo. Meanwhile, Pip just gets on with life. And my bro's 8yo rescued GSD-cross is perfectly happy on his Wagg diet too. Normally-shaped medium-sized dogs with well-mixed genes normally avoid the displacias, sensitive tums, behaviour issues, etc. of their posher and weirder brethren but are no less life-enriching. Woefully inadequate exercise and/or overfeeding also explain many doggy 'problems' that owners then blame on the food. I've had non-pedigrees since the 1950s; all were long-lived, happy pets that gave years of pleasure and affection.

“happy dogs, happy tummys”

★★★★☆

written by kakeen on 11/10/2013

8 yr old staffie and 3 yr old border collie both very shiny and happy on Wagg dry food. Both very energetic and never an empty bowl! Bob had problems with diarrhoea and constant upset tummys when we adopted him a year ago and continued feeding him with a more expensive food. Problem resolved completely when switched to Wagg. Bob does get very excitable in the house quite often tho and someone said that Wagg can cause hyperactivity in dogs?? Does anyone know if there is any truth in this, or is this just more likely to be Bob being a typical border collie?? Vet wasn't knowledgeable in the least.

“Cheap for a reason!”

★☆☆☆☆

written by on 08/09/2013

I was feeding my male 6 month old Rottweiler Royal Canin but everyone was telling me i was being ripped off as Royal Canin is so expensive and Wagg is just as good for a fraction of the price. So for the last 4 weeks ive been feeding him Wagg!! What a disaster! He no longer had a silky shiny coat. His coat was dull and falling out at an horrendous rate daily. He is now back on Royal Canin and his coat is soft, shiny and silky again. He did like to eat Wagg but it was obviously not giving him the goodness he needed.

“rubbish”

★☆☆☆☆

written by on 21/07/2013

Wagg is one of the worst dog foods around, nothing but filler. If you are buying food for your dog, the main ingredient should be meat/fish & the label should tell you what animal it comes from, not just 'meat'

“Very waggy tail!”

★★★★☆

written by on 12/03/2013

I have a staffy puppy who is now 10 months has always had a sensitive tum, he can't have wet food as the jelly irritates him, he can only have the chubb rolls which i mash into this dry food as he gets bored of eating dry foods day in and day out. I consider this food a good quality complete food, and believe me i have gone though expensive stuff which was costing me a fortune each month and yes i admit his poop was perfect skin coat eyes glossy, in tip top condition but then he just turn his nose up and would end up throwing most of it away as he just wasnt interested. Now, i work in a supermarket and always seeing people buy big great sacks of wagg, and i thought the shelf is nearly almost empty of this wagg stuff maybe i will give it a go, 2kg bag is £3 james well beloved is nearly £9. Which i consider near enough the same as the wagg as he is still in great condition coat always shiny hes a happy dog and he eats it. I know cheap and great quality dont go hand in hand but if you are on a budget then please try wagg.

“my dog doesn't like it”

★★☆☆☆

written by jason_sanderson on 15/01/2013

my dog doesnt eat it so it must be bad :( He eats EVERYTHING so that is saying alot. I bought it on sale at a local Pet Co. I'm disapppointed because even on sale it was still expensive. I thought I was buying something quality but I guess not.

WOW Wagg expensive I would hate to think what you feed your dog!
I use James Wellbeloved for my dogs and yes it costs me approx £100 a month they are worth it.
My daughter bought this wagg home from work I'm sure it's ok as food goes they didn't like it much but it is nothing like expensive so you get what you pay for.

“Wagg is Great”

★★★★★

written by juliebuchanan20 on 14/05/2012

Went to the vets and told the nurse what I was feeding my 2 springer spaniers 'wag worker' she turned her nose up and said take them off it immediately. This is the only food my dogs like they look great their coats are great and they are full of energy like springers should be. Wagg is reasonably priced unlike what the nurse called better brands, she tried to flog me Royal Canine at £46 per bag I think she was on commission. I think this is why vets tell us what to feed our dogs as they get commission my previous vet tried to get me to put them Hills and told me all about the good deals he could get.

“im a little unsure on wagg.. allthough my dog likes it”

★★★☆☆

written by allie100671 on 24/03/2012

i have an 8mnth old staffy who's very lively & full of energy (as they are @ his age) since going from puppy food on to adult food, ive tried a number of different brands ect for him, allthough admittedly usually the lower priced ones. a friend suggested i try wagg for him, reading the ingredients i was a little unsure as it didnt seem to have much of anything 'good' in it, but tried it anyway. he's been on it for a few months now & im quite often being complemented on how shiny his coat is & just how well he looks generally, his coat is lovely. i do however mix a small amount of tinned food through with it (various brands) his wind is very smelly though, but i do think that has a lot to do with the tinned foods in it. we all like to think we're doing the best we can by our pets ect.. but if i find a 'better quality' complete, that has more beneficial ingredients for him, that he is happy with.. i will change. just for peace of mind more than anything else.. but up to date i would recomend wagg to other people.

We rescued an 8 week old pup last week - lurcher cross collie we think. He has had terrible diarrhoea all week, with some blood at times. Some days he’s gone to the loo every half hour. Vet just wanted to analyse. He was on James Wellbeloved. We stopped that yesterday and started him on boiled chicken and banana - on the advice from the rescue centre. Already he’s so much better. Would Wagg puppy be a good gentle good yo rein try gradually? And please, how gradually? Thanks
