Hale Dog Food

**Hale is officially Non-GMO Project Verified!**

The Honest Kitchen Hale Dog Food is a whole grain base mix, which allows you to customize your dog's diet with the meat of your choice. This mix has ancient grains including organic chia seeds, buckwheat and millet that provide a gluten-free source of protein and fiber, as well as essential fatty acids and other nutrients. Hale dehydrated dog food is an excellent addition for raw dog food feeders or those making a home prepared meal. As a whole grain dog food foundation diet, protein must be added with every feeding. The beauty of Hale is that you can add whichever meat you would like, so it's an excellent option for dogs that can't tolerate common protein sources or who just like a little variety.

The Honest Kitchen Hale is good for dogs who:
♥ Can’t tolerate common proteins
♥ Do better with low gluten, whole grains
♥ Need variety and ability to incorporate different proteins

I have fed this mix to my Springer Spaniel, Emily, in the past and she loved it! I usually mixed it with either boiled chicken or brown ground turkey. I have recently switched her over to Revel because it is more convenient for me, but I would use this mix again.

I love all of the choices I have from this company!

Great food for a raw diet, my dog can be picky with certain things but she eats this right up! It smells so good I'd even be tempted to eat it! Great food at a great price. I like the reward point system through honest kitchen.

My dog, Triton, has lymphangiectasia which means heneeds a low fat diet with high quality protien. He was diagnosed two years ago and since then I have been successfully managing his disease using Honest Kitchen base mix and low fat white fish. Triton gets bored with his meals if there isn't variety so I alternate feeding him Hale and Preference at different meals. He loves this food. I prefer Hale to the Preference because it smells yummy and mixes up thicker without having wait as long for itto absorb the water. Kind of smells like oatmeal.

My mini Doxie, Midge, was diagnosed as having skin allergies. Vets kept cranking me the steroids and told me to avoid all grains etc. I followed the advice of a different vet, holistic, and I am so glad I did! Homecooking with Preference helped "right" Midge's system, and now she eats Hale also without any issues with any of the grains! So thankful for the selection, quality and options from Honest Kitchen!!

I feed very little grain but this base is a great source for green things and grain when unwed to add some non protein calories in to my dogs diets. It helps keep weight on my super model active performance dog and helps fill up my senior dog who doesn't need quite as much protein now but still wants a full bowl of food.
Good product and even my picky pup likes it.

Yum! I like my stew fresh, warm, and varied, and this never fails to hit the spot. Mum just adds small-batch tested raw meat, pasteurised raw meaty bones, flash frozen oily fish, fresh venison, or a wide assortment of cooked meats. I feel like I have such a varied diet, but it's great seeing that it only takes my parents 3 minutes to prepare my meals!

Henry gobbles this up as if it's edible gold. I love that, while it has grains, it contains no grains that he's sensitive to (wheat & corn). I also love the flexibility it give me to vary the protein sources he has, including cooked and raw meat of different kinds while still feeling confident that he's getting balanced nutrition.

All 3 of my girls love this food, they are happier, more energy and look forward to their food now

Our 3 year old Wheaten developed skin allergies here in the desert Southwest and rather than put him through weeks of allergy testing, I started researching food alternatives. Loved the 'honest' information of THK foods and the website, so took a chance. Riley is crazy about all the base mixes and no more skin allergies. Never seen a dog lick his bowl clean like this! Thanks Honest Kitchen!

I recently switched my dogs to raw meat and veggies and saw immediately the difference in their coats. But with four dogs, it was challenging to come up with a good mix of veggies to go with the meat. That's why I was so excited to find out about Hale base mix! Its perfect for my situation! I can add in whatever meat I want, and the dogs LOVE the combination!

My super picky 15 1/2 year old whippet gives Hale and Kindly 5 paws! It's great to be able to add your choice of protein, too.
