Go Grain Free with Wellness Dog Food! #GrainFreeForMe

Hey, everyone!

This post is sponsored by Wellness Natural Pet Food and the BlogPaws® Pet Influencer Network™. I am being compensated to help share the reinvented Complete Health Line and other Wellness Products, but we only share information we feel is relevant to our readers. Wellness Natural Pet Foodis not responsible for the content of this article.

I'm excited to share that we are working with Wellness® to promote grain free pet food! I've been feeding grain free to Nola for almost four years now, and the difference has been astounding. I'm thrilled to see Wellness offer a new line! I've been a fan for years, and Wellness has been a staple in the dogs' rotation. 

Grain free food is a biologically appropriate way to feed, and Wellness offers a large array of products to fit that need, including their reinvented Wellness® Complete Health™ line. Complete Health is a grain free, quality protein kibble that's full of essential vitamins and minerals for the nutrition your pet needs to thrive. It's a great budget friendly and easily accessible option if you're curious to try your pet on a grain free diet.

I've personally found that my dogs do best on kibble that's at least 30% protein, with the ideal being 35-38%. I've seen better muscle tone, softer coats, more eager appetites, and the all important smaller poops with higher protein diets, and Wellness is more than eager to accommodate that with their Wellness® Core® line of dog food. This line is packed with animal protein that has no fillers or by-produtcts, artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. It has has several different flavors for dogs of all ages and sizes, so there's something for everyone. 

Miss Nola is testing out Core Adult Small Breed kibble, and she is quite happy about that. With a minimum of 36% protein and quality ingredients, I was eager to see how the little kielbasa would like it. She loves it! She's always eager to eat (hello, dachshund!), but their was an extra zest to appetite when I offered the Wellness kibble. I've even been using the food during training (I give half their daily meal in a bowl/food puzzle in the morning, and the rest during training), and she's happy to work for it. It definitely has her seal of approval.
She just started on the Core, and so far, so good! 

One thing I love is the small, triangular kibble. She's never had a problem with larger pieces, but the small ones are much more convenient for training. It's also better for food puzzles, since more pieces equals a  longer time getting them all out. It's always good to keep her busy a little longer. ;)
There's no strong odor to this food, which is such a blessing. With a nose as sensitive as mine, I appreciate not gagging every day when the pups get fed.

Check back in May for an update!

  1. Great review! I heard Wellness is truly a great food. Our dogs are currently fed Purina One and it really brings out their coats (which is important because the Dachshund I have is a show dog) and they love it! It has lots of protein. However, I think we might eventually switch to Wellness!

  2. We are big believer in grain free, especially with Arty's allergies!

  3. Wellness has really awesome products! The girls really enjoy their stuff!

  4. They look like a perfect size for Nola. I am always looking for healthy food and treats.

  5. We're trying the same kibble, and I too love the little bites. I like tossing them in the grass for Matilda to hunt. They really are excellent for training, and highly motivating!

  6. We've fed Core in the past and are currently trying the reinvented Complete Health line for our senior pup, Emmett. It's been really digestible for him (he's not one to judge palatability... he'll eat literally anything). The little bites as training treats is such a great idea! We use the kibbles for a game called "chase the treat," and it's a great way to divide up his meal!
