Adding to its dominance of the online market, Amazon has now dipped its huge paw into the world of dog food with the 2018 launch of its Wag Dog Food brand.

Created to take on the affordable dog food market, Wag started with just five dry dog food recipes but has now expanded to also include wet dog food as well as cat food. The whole Wag Dog Food range is soy, corn, and wheat-free, and contains no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. And, with a higher-than-average percentage of protein, this everyday dog food is giving other more established dog food brands a good run for their money.

But with Wag only available if you have an Amazon Prime account, and with not much of a track record so far to assess them on, our Wag Dog Food review aims to open the can this new kid with a big name on the dog food block.

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.

My dogs love this stuff. To be fair, I haven’t found a food that they don’t like, not a picky eater in the bunch, and this is no exception. The ingredients are decent, and all 3 of my dogs, aged from 4 years old to 14 years old, like it and are doing well on it. I mix it with a good quality canned food, and I also give them some cooked chicken and supplements for joints and skin/coat health. The ingredients for the price were the selling point for me. I would be more comfortable, however, knowing I could call somebody to ask questions or report a problem, however, so I don’t think this will be a permanent choice for me.

I guess it has good flavor. I didn’t taste it but the puppy starting eating his kibble more since I switched him to this brand. The pieces are a bit smaller than the last brand which is easier for him since he’s a small breed.

This dog food is the only one that does not make my older Frenchie get UTIs and have horrible smelling pee… She needs the lower protein for her kidneys. My other choice was to pay $30 for 8 pound bag of perception food from the vet. She love the flavor and it never gives her diarrhea.

Is Wag a Good Dog Food? 

While it is still a relative newcomer to the global pet food market, Amazon’s Wag Pet Food range seems to be hitting the mark, with overall Wag! reviews coming in at above average, with reviewers highlighting the ease of buying (via Amazon), taste and decent levels of nutrition, all at an affordable price.

The buying power of Amazon means they can keep their prices relatively low while aiming to provide quality, everyday nutrition for your pet. From an ingredients point of view, the Wag pet food brand selling points, while not unique, are wholesome and aims to be high quality, with the range free from artificial colors or ingredients. And the addition of grain-free recipes just serves to widen the brand’s appeal.

The proportions of protein and fats are also a good level, and sufficient for active dogs. And, if you dog is sensitive or you would rather a more limited recipe, then the grain-free dog food formula is a definite plus, as highlighted in many of the online Wag Dog Food reviews.

The Short History of Wag Company

In 2018, Amazon, the online marketplace dominating the globe, moved into the world of dog food, launching the Wag range under their own brand. After years of selling all the leading pet food brands, the mega online retailer developed their own product line, to try and shake up the affordable dog food niche. And with their mammoth buying power meaning they can produce dog food at a lower price, Amazon aims to tempt dog owners away from their usual brand.

Initially launched with a limited range – just four dry dog food adult recipes and one for puppies – Wag has since expanded to include wet formulas as well as cat food and dog treats – and is aimed at the everyday petfood market. 

However, the start of Wag came back in 2011, when Amazon bought wag.com, a dog food website that had previously sold various dog food brands and pet products. Then in 2017, the site was closed, with all its traffic redirected to the Amazon site. This was shortly followed by the online launch of new Amazon Wag dog food brand.

The Wag dog food range is currently available with added discounts and offers through Amazon Prime. Amazon also has two other dog food brands – dry dog food brand, Solimo and canned dog food range, Simply Perfection.

Where is Wag Dog Food Made?

Nearly four years on from its launch and there’s still scant details as to who actually produces the Wag pet food range for Amazon. The clearest clue is on Amazon’s product pages, where it states that it is ‘made in California, USA at a family-owned facility with trusted, high-quality sources from around the world.’

Where Do They Source Their Ingredients From?

Again, information is a little thin on the ground, although there is a commitment to using US-sourced ingredients in many of their products, including USA-raised chicken and beef. 

Product Lines – Differences and Which One You Should Choose

From its initial small range of four dry dog food products, plus one for puppies, Wag has steadily expanded its lines to cater for adult dogs, puppies, and small breeds, as well as recipes for all life stages. It now has a grain free range, as well as its popular whole grain recipes and has also added a more limited wet food line to the dog food range.

The main ingredients used in its Wholesome Grain range are real meat and brown rice, while the Grain free line uses carbohydrates such as lentils and sweet potato.

They also all contain higher than average levels of quality protein, targeted to support the energy needs of each life stage. 

Let’s Take a Closer Look at Ingredients

Now to a more in-depth look at the ingredients in the Wag Dog Food range and what they offer your pooch.

The first thing to note is that all the Wag recipes are free of corn, soy, and wheat as well as any artificial colors, preservatives, or flavors. And that is a reassuring start. The range also provides a high level of protein in their dry formulas compared to many other brands, averaging at 35% in the adult range and 36% for the puppy formula.

Wag prides itself on the high-quality protein it includes in the range, with beef, chicken, salmon, tuna, turkey, lamb, beef & chicken liver featuring amongst the first two ingredients in each recipe.

However, when looking at the first five ingredients in each recipe, plants such as lentils and pea protein, do feature quite regularly and while they do help to boost the protein percentage quota, they can be a little harder for your dog to digest. However, Wag/Amazon do acknowledge potential sensitivities, by recommending you gradually move your pet onto the range when feeding it to them for the first time.

Fats in their diet are also essential for your dog’s good health, and Wag scores a decent average, with quality chicken fat added to all its dog food recipes. Omega-rich flaxseed and brewer’s yeast, which is rich in vitamin B, also feature large. The carbohydrate ratio is in a good, healthy range too and managed quality carbs including sweet potato, rice, dried plain beet and beet pulp and chicory root. Each recipe also contains five probiotic strains to support digestive and intestinal health.

There are, however, some ingredients to be aware of. Pea protein, as already highlighted, features in many of the recipes and can be used to inflate the overall protein levels without offering much in the way of quality nutrition. Dried beet pulp can also be used as an unnecessary filler while the presence of brewer’s yeast in some of the recipes can be an issue if your dog is prone to allergies. The amount of salt used in their recipes are not disclosed on the Wag ingredient list, so exercise caution if your dog has health issues such as kidney disease.

Dog Food Recall History

Our usual searches (via FDA and the American Veterinary Medicine Association) have not revealed any history of product recalls for the Amazon Wag Pet Food brand. But as the range is still relatively new – it has only been running since 2018 – this is not particularly surprising. 

Price 

Created to be an affordable alternative to the premium dog food brands, Amazon’s Wag range is well-priced, considering the high quantities of quality protein as well as other well-thought-out ingredients. You can expect to pay around $40 for a 30-pound bag of dry dog food, compared to $50 plus for brands such as Wellness, Pure Balance and American Journey.

Where can I buy Wag Dog Food? 

With such a dominant online retail force as Amazon, it’s no surprise that the Wag Pet Food range can only be bought from amazon.com and is not available in any other pet food retail stores, physical or online.

How do I transition my dog from their old food to a Wag product?

When moving your pet onto any new dog food, a slower approach is best to avoid any digestive reactions or stomach upsets. And with Wag, a step-by-step transition guide is clearly printed on all its dog food packing. 

The recommended time to wean your pooch on to its new, delicious Wag meal is 10 days, starting with supplementing 75% of their old food with a quarter of their new Wag food for the first three days. The ratio is then upped to 50:50 for days four to six, rising to 75% Wag/25% old dog food for the final three days until you reach day 10, when your dog should be happily chowing down on 100% Wag in their food bowl. 

In a Nutshell, Is Wag a Good Choice?

The Wag brand name is Amazon’s move to offer affordable and nutritious dog food exclusively via its all-dominating online platform. And the quality ingredients and high protein levels as well as grain and grain-free formulas do offer good value, compared to other similar dog food brands. 

As a complete everyday dog food for the average pooch with no or few health-related dietary requirement, Wag provides excellent quality as well as taste. However, it is known to use some cheaper ingredients as well as some unnecessary fillers in some of the products in the range. And there are grains in many of the recipes so perhaps not suited to the more sensitive or allergy-prone pooch.

So, the deciding factors as to whether Wag is a good choice comes down to personal preference, your dog’s specific nutritional requirements and price. And for many pet parents and their dogs, this all adds up to an appealing dog food that is both nutritious and wallet friendly.
