My little guy is definitely not a fan of this. We got him this type because when we ran out of food, this is the only type that the store had, and I wouldn't dare take my pup away from Honest Kitchen, He Definitely does not Thrive off of this. He's constantly hungry, but doesn't wanna touch all of his food. My guy has never been a begger, until he decided that he didn't like this one. He LOVES Honest Kitchen, and won't eat anything else, but this one is not the one.

My dobe seemed to be a little unsure of the texture but when I mix it with something with a more solid consistency he seems to really enjoy it. Great for when we go out camping, because he will eat it all up.

This recipe is I think my favorite to get for my dog. She's a mix, about 35 lbs, 5 years old and no health problems (knock on wood). But I think she digests more of this recipe than others I've tried (Keen, Verve, Revel), in other words, less poop :) This recipe does seem to be more finely ground than the others though, so requires more mixing and takes longer to absorb the water. But overall excellent choice!

We got two samples of this because we wanted to see if it could make our picky eight month old Beagle eat her food in one sitting, instead of picking at it throughout the day.

Well, it did the trick. I mixed The Honest Kitchen with her kibble this morning and she gobbled it down. Definitely going to keep buying this for her. Anything to get her to eat.

This food was soupy. I double checked the box to make sure I had mixed it correctly. Yep, I had. I added more food and it was still soupy. My dog did not appreciate this one. He would not eat it. The spinach smell was a bit strong. I had to return the box and trade it for Force. He likes Force.

I'm in the process of transitioning my puppy to Thrive and he is loving it. I'm very impressed with The Honest Kitchen's products. The quality shows. I'm sure i'll be purchasing food from them for years to come.

My dogs loved the sample but would not go near this stuff after I bought the 4-lb box. I tried all water to food ratios, but they hated it. Definitely recommend trying the samples for a few feedings before committing to paying over $ 40 a box. Thumbs down.

My puppy seems to really enjoy this food. I've put her on other flavors (Embark), and she doesn't seem to have a preference.
I occasionally mix in dry dog food (Blue Buffalo) just to enhance the texture. I'm no really sure if that is a no-no or not. I feel like she is licking her food instead of eating it. It may just be the way I'm making it, but the food is much more liquid than solid.
Overall, this is great food for my pup. I've been feeding it to her for the past 2 months. She is very healthy and is gaining weight at a great pace. She also has regular potty breaks and I haven't noticed a problem with the consistency of her stools.
This is a great product. I do recommend it to friends. I plan to keep her on it into adulthood.

I adopted a dog named duffy. The cutest terrier mix for my 91 year old dad who still walks 4 miles everyday, with duffy by his side. Duffy is a rescue dog who was found on the streets in nogales arizona. He now lives in indiana and he loves his chicken honest kitchen. He came in to the shelter skin and bones and he is now healthy and happy and 4 lbs heavier. My dad loves mixing the food with water and patiently waiting with duffy for it to reconstitute

I have 2, 17 year old pugs and a 2 year old Pyrenees who we rescued in May. The pugs are blind and deaf and one has severe allergies. Thus, they have been on very expensive, very limited ingredient kibble. However, a wonderful person told us about this food and we have recently switched them. Kibble is still highly processed and thus not good for allergies. The severely allergic pug seems to have less anxiety now and sleeps much better. Time will tell to see how his allergies are. He seems great now, very bright eyed, something we haven't seen in a long time. The other pug would not eat his kibble in the morning, and my pyrenees stopped eating the kibble in the morning too. Once we switched them to this, now they both look forward to eating. It's so great! Their bathroom habits are regular now (wahoo), and the senior dogs are getting enough liquid into their diet, as well as more nutrients since their bodies are capable of processing the dehydrated food much easier. We are so happy to have found this. We may end up switching to grain fee for the one pug though.

3 stars not because of quality rather because this was the only flavor offered by honest kitchen that my puppy didn't want anything to do with.
