TLC Whole Life Dog Food

Towards the end of November I switched Gracie to TLC Whole Life Dog Food. I met the TLC team at BarkWorld 2015 and was very impressed with their pet food. After BarkWorld, we got back in touch and they provided me with a coupon to share with my readers.

Since I am providing my followers with a coupon for the food, I also wanted to be using it myself and let you know about my great experience with TLC dog food.

The most important thing to me about dog food is the quality of ingredients. If you go to Dog Food Advisor’s analysis of TLC Dog food you will find a break down of the ingredients used and how they impact your pet. One thing that stood out to me is the use of salmon meal and salmon oil in the food. If you read my post about New Year resolutions you saw that I have been wanting to add more Omega-3’s to Gracie’s diet. Salmon oil is a more pure version of fish oil, which is wonderful for getting Omega-3’s. Omega-3’s help to aid your dog’s immune system and shiny coat, along with other benefits. SitStay has a great guide for the benefits of Salmon Oil. Another thing that stood out is the use of lamb meal, chicken meal, and salmon meal. Meat meals have more concentrated protein than the straight meat, making it a great source for protein and energy. It is also important that TLC has the meat first on their ingredient list.

There are more ingredients I could go on about, but I have covered my favorites. Overall, TLC has great ingredients. They are naturally preserved and free of by-products, corn, wheat, soy and fillers.

I also feel that TLC Dog food is better than the food I was using before. Here is a chart comparing it to other pet foods:  comparisonUS (4)

I plan to continue to feed Gracie this food. It is wonderful quality with good ingredients. Gracie is a typical picky eater, so I was happy that she liked TLC!  But just to help with her picky attitude I will add in extra veggies and wet dog foods with her dry food.  A few things that I have tried with her include fresh veggies, high quality wet dog food, and a high quality dog food meat roll. She especially enjoys sweet potatoes and green beans. Overall, Gracie liked TLC dog food and it is healthy for her, so I would definitely recommend it to any pet owner!

Of course, as with anything you feed your pet, be aware of any allergies your dog might have and switch foods slowly by mixing with your original food  to help prevent upsetting your dogs stomach or digestive system. Gracie gets gas whenever I switch her food, which is a very common issue when changing any dogs food. To help prevent gas or upset stomach when switching I added in pumpkin during the switch.

After trying out this food with Gracie, I can comfortably recommend this food for my reader’s dogs.

  1. I wish I could have made it to Barkworld this year. I also have never heard of this food. I’m always open to learning about new food options. We are also a husky(3) family (plus an aussie). I am constantly searching for the best in nutrition for them.

    1. They do not sell in stores because they have not needed to since they do so well selling online and in person. There are many breeders, rescues, and pet owners who swear by this food. I had never heard of it before I met them, but upon research I found that they are very popular with their costumers.

  2. It looks like Gracie really loves TLC’s food! I like that it doesn’t have corn and wheat. Our carnivores don’t need those things. This sounds like it has a lot of really nutritious ingredients!

    1. I know! Gracie is very picky. She isn’t a fan of peanut butter or bananas. And will only take certain treats half the time. She also does not eat all her food in one sitting unless it is something really good like TLC pet food.

    1. TLC is actually free of many common dog allergens. As long as you know what Layla is allergic to, it would be perfectly safe as long as you check the ingredients. This is from their website: “Any protein source (lamb, beef, poultry, wheat, corn, etc.) can cause an allergy reaction if consumed by a sensitized dog. More allergic reactions will occur when beef or wheat products are fed as they have been in dog food longer. Lamb and rice are used by many veterinarians to feed to dogs that are sensitive to other meat sources.

      TLC has omitted all of the common allergens from Whole Life Natural Dog Food. Our carbohydrates and proteins are specifically selected for their low allergy rating.

      TLC Whole Life Natural contains both Quinoa and Vitamin C for immune system health and stress protection. A healthy immune system can best manage any environmental allergens such as pollen and grass.

      TLC Whole Life Natural does not contain any artificial colors, flavors or preservatives, all of which are common allergens and should be avoided.”

  3. Just curious why you gave 4.5 out of 5. I have 5 dogs and have been using TLC food for several years and love that is delivered to my home and my dogs all love it. 5 out of 5 for me.
