My wife & I ordered the 2lb box of force to try it out on our three dogs and they loved it and we were very surprised because our oldest Rhodesian Ridgeback is very picky about what she eats, but she was crazy about THK. So we are officially switching our dogs to THK.

I have received your first order of the Chicken food. I am a breeder so I use this for my mother dogs after they whelp. It mixes wonderful with their dry kibble and I will most certainly will be ordering more soon. For me it mixes well with the kibble and encourages the babies to eat more. Thanks again I found you at a Corgi Meet up group after trying some samples that they had.
Thanks again

Kismet starts to beg for her Force Chicken about an hour before feeding time. The 4 minutes she waits for her food is agonizing for her! She dances, spins, and barks at me while she waits. She LOVES this food.

My dog and I love the grain free line of Honest Kitchen. Embark and Force are the best food- both grain free and great for food allergies like my dog. Best of all- it is food that you and me would eat straight from our kitchen! Best thing to home-made dog food but much easier and convenient.

My dog refuses to eat his dry food alone, so I use Force as a topper. It has healthy, natural ingredients, and best of all, my dog loves it. My dog trainer had recommended The Honest Kitchen, and I'm so glad she did.

Force is my dog's favorite THK food. The other flavors are a close second and third for her but Force is her #1. I love that I can see the REAL FOOD come to life as I add water and stir. I am proud to serve my dog a product that I can stand so strongly behind. We frequent the dog park and one of my favorite comments I get is: "I need to feed my dog what you feed Rollins." I know that I am putting good fuel in her body so she can be her happy and energetic self. Put good in, get good out. People also comment on her coat being so soft and shiny all of the time and I know it is a direct result of THK- honest, quality food. Thank you THK!

I must admit I was a skeptic when I received the sample and saw it was freeze dried and when I added the water I thought no way will my Yorkie-Poo eat this porridge but I was WRONG. My Buster literally gobbled the food down, I did mix it with some dry food but I have never seen him eat so fast and every bite, he even belched when he finished as if to say "very good"! By the third sample, he knew what I was fixing and followed me around the kitchen very excited for his dinner which he has never done so I will be heading to the store to buy some more!!! It is very easy to mix and nicer than canned wet food for sure so please try this for your pet's sake, they will thank you later! I am very happy to have found something he actually loves to eat and is really healthy for him.

We've had our dog on Honest Kitchen products for about 7 years. He loves the food and is in great health.

Written by Aleks and Bruno | 11/17/14

This is such a great food! I use it as a topper on dry food but with the water it becomes like a thick soup, a stew of sorts if you will. Bruno loves it so much and it really helps him enjoy the dry food we feed - thanks to THK Force he always has a clean bowl. The only problem for him are the apples - he can't seem to digest them well, even when rehydrated. But that's okay because he still gets a lot of his food - everything else seems to be absorbed pretty well.

I was looking for an easier but just as healthy alternative to a homemade raw diet. Being a Veterinary Technician I understand the importance of nutrition, that being said I'm also very busy, working long hours and rarely have time to prepare raw food for my two babies, a Golden Retriever named Ranger and a Bluetick Coonhound named Huckleberry. I love the idea of a raw diet i just dont have the time. THK is a great alternative, my boys get the benefits of a more natural raw diet and I get to spend the time I need with them rather than preparing meals for them all the time! My boys absolutely love it! I can mix in whatever fresh veggies and fruit I have but in all honesty it isnt needed, its a complete balanced meal with ingredients you can see. I love the lower calories, 446 kcal/cup before rehydration and 223 kcal/cup once hydrated which is great for larger breed dogs who are predisposed to weight gain. Overall great product! Love THK
