This mix is amazing. I recently switched my 10 year-old Mini Dachshund Cuba from kibble back to raw and the changes I have seen are great! He is losing weight, his coat looks beautiful and he is so shiny! I think he absolutely missed his raw diet. His energy is up and he is one happy pup! Thank you!

This is a GREAT addition to your base mix choices! We rescued a beautiful little red nose pittie as a puppy last yr. and have gone crazy trying to find something to feed our immuno-compromised little guy. Started out with premium kibble, choice canned food, vet prescription food, then decided to go the BARF diet. After costly vet visits, and trials with meats over a year, he was extremely allergic to chicken, beef, bison, turkey, salmon - ugh, raw or cooked along with freshly mowed grass. He had severe skin reactions, red from nose to tail & hives in an hour or so, itching like crazy, hot spots, oozing ears and just driving us crazy. We tried several of the complete mixes, and then began cooking for him. We hit upon pork roasts pressure cooked, but realized he was still allergic to the added veggies, quinoi or rice. So recently ordered the Kindly and at the same time, your new Halcyon (duck mix) and they are winners! No more skin problems and much simpler for me- receiving all the nutrition he needs. Finished both 3lb bags & ready to place another larger order. I do add coconut oil occasionally, since he does have dry skin and that makes it even yummier. Literally, this has been a lifesaver for our beautiful dog, and we also rotate feed it to our 12 yr old Staffie, who has no allergies, but who had lost appetite and will to thrive from arthritis. Also, they both LOVE the stinky Beams! for a treat ! We have tried virtually everything, and your products with cooked pork has been the answer to our prayers for a healthy dog! Thank you.

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! for adding new base mixes!!! My lil 8.5 lb shih tzu would eat Preference but not really enthusiastically. NOW...I just start mixing in her protein to "Kindly" and she goes nuts! i love how it only takes 3 minutes now and I feel like the new bases have a better flavor profile,,,,THEY SURE SMELL GOOD!
We just recently added a rescue shih tzu/mix and God only knows what she has gone through in her short 2 yr life. When we first got Stella she was a bit lifeless/not much energy...and would not eat the kibbles that came with her...don't blame her one bit. I immediately put her on Honest Kitchen and boy did Stella come to life!
Thank you Honest Kitchen for making a food with integrity and well...honesty!

My dog loves this base mix! Licks his bowl clean every time. He wasn't a big fan of the other base mix we were feeding him but now his meals times are so much more fun now!

We stopped using Preference because it had sweet potatoes and fruit in it. Our dog frequently gets yeast infections due to allergies and yeast feed off sugar. So we started cooking for our dog and bought a supplement powder. But once Kindly was released, we immediately bought a box to try. I love that it is grain-free, potato-free, and fruit-free. This is perfect for my dog. He has been doing very well on Kindly and now it doesn't take hours to cook for him.

I have tried a couple other base mixes and my dog, Teddy was not interested. This base mix is awesome. Teddy loves it and I love that I am feeding a great product. Thank you!

This is the best base mix yet!! All five of my dogs love this, no matter which raw protein I mix it with. Thank you Honest Kitchen, for yet another great product!

I had been trying to switch my two German shepherds to Raw for a while, but I just didn't have the time to go to the store and process 70 pounds of balanced food (in addition to meat) for them every 12 days or so, and so I just kept feeding them a premium kibble, thinking that their couldn't be that much of a difference. Well, both of them got sick on the last bag I bought, so finally enough was enough and I broke down and bought Kindly as a base mix.

It's only been two weeks, but what a difference! My dogs start dancing as soon as I get the box of Kindly out of the cupboard. They LOVE it. Even better, my female who has been battling allergies and hotspots is now hotspot free, and even her eyes aren't as red. YAY! I'm so glad we switched. No more kibble for my pups!

Just wonderful! I added chicken to this one and it smelled delicious. My pets loved it! Kindly will now be a part of their weekly menu. Thank you for another great base mix!

Harry got switched to "real food" late in life, for medical reasons. After a year of cooking and chopping chard for him, we checked with our vet, who told us that a base mix with his meat would actually be better for him. He started on Kindly about two months ago, and he has more spring in his walk than we've seen since well before his surgery. And the grain, potato and fruit-free recipe is just what the doctor ordered. Thank you for this new product!

So far so good, only been using about 3 weeks, swicthed due to constant allergy problems with both my dogs. They love it and we did not experience any diarrhea or anything usually related to switching foods, they transitioned without a problem, looking forward to reordering:)
