Lucky loves all of the Honest Kitchen foods so it's hard to tell which is his favorite but I believe if I put this food down next to any other food he would choose it. He sit very handsome and proud all the while drooling like a waterfall.

My 6 dogs like this, but I have some reservations. I started with raw and species-specific diets by following Dr Ian Billinghurst's Bones sand Raw Food diet. (The book is "Give Your dog a Bone." Thanks to him, I now own that AMAZING VitaMix mixer! It's about the only appliance that will suitably pulverize raw vegetables.)
He is very negative about feeding grains to dogs, and I guess I still have that bias. Yes, grains make food cheaper, but I feel like I'm compromising their diets by using a food with grain in it. It's bad enough that I'm so lazy I'm feeding them something other than meaty raw bones and raw vegetable mushes. From the Billinghurst standpoint, I'm cheating them out of enzymes, etc that are destroyed by heat.
But you have to be practical with so many big dogs. That was A LOT of raw meaty bones/green tripe, and a WHOLE LOT of VitaMixed veggies!
So, I've gone back to the grain-free foods.

My 10 week old puppy LOVED this food and his poop was great on it, although even when I added Bloom you could still see bits of undigested veggies. However, between the water used to rehydrate the food and the water he was drinking he was getting waaaaaay too much water. He couldn't hold his urine. When we took him to the Vet his urine was extremely diluted. Sadly, I had to switch him to kibble.

my 4 month old husky/rottweiler puppy was having major digestive upset and ear infections from an allergy to something in his kibble. after trying all the natural/organic kibble brands appropriate for puppies (& there isn't very many without turkey, fish, and peas) someone finally recommended the honest kitchen. we have been feeding him thrive for a week now and his tummy is all back to normal and he is gaining weight again! :) we are just so happy that our baby is feeling good again and that we found a nutritious, healthy food.

Ever since switching my dog to Thrive his skin issues and food sensitivities have disappeared. We would be absolutely lost with Thrive!

My dog enjoyed the sample of Thrive so much that I will be ordering the full size. He has always been a picky eater so it was nice to see him really like his food.

My dog loves it but only if I top it off with some extra meat. It is pretty messy though. I have to wipe him off with a wet towel after he finishes his meal.

I'm very happy with Thrive! It is an affordable option, while still feeding the high quality HK diet. My dogs love it, and their skin and coats look great.

I have four 50+ pound dogs at home and feed all of them THK Thrive. They get so excited for dinner every night. Every once in awhile, as a special treat I rotate through Love or Embark and love all THK kitchen products. They even love the treats! I would recommend this food to everyone based on the fact that it has human grade ingredients and has non-gmo ingredients!

Written by Jennifer | 7/15/14

I know it's a good product, but my dog refuses to eat this food. And of course after I bought the 10 pound bag! She likes the other THK products. This was the first time I didn't buy a grain free one. So maybe it's the grains she doesn't like. If you have a picky dog consider the grain free over this one. Oh, and my dog isn't that picky. This is the first thing she's refused to eat. I'm having to add chicken to it and shell ear all the chicken and then I'll have to feed her kibble so that she doesn't starve. Ha.
