Vannie loves all foods and has no health or allergy problems - BUT - we are moving from the farm into an apartment and are looking for all good ways to downsize. Her big kibble bin is out; her new Honest Kitchen food is in. Great food in a box that fits on a shelf and re-hydrates in 3 minutes is so good. Waiting the 3 minutes, she now runs back upstairs to her toys, as if she can't stand to be that near without eating. When it is time, she races back downstairs, sits with bright eyes, and when given the "OK" she gobbles up her Force. She loves it, and so do we.

Max, my toy fox terrier who is 11 1/2 years old, loves this food! I've been trying for several years to get him on a healthy product and he would try other "very highly rated holistic" brands and then after a month, he would stop eating. Honest Kitchen Force has been a refreshing change. Max has gone through 3 4-lb boxes and is still going crazy at food time waiting 3 minutes before the timer goes off!! He also loves the treats. I'm very happy my little fella has a healthy and nutritious meal as he ages because I know he's well taken care of now.

I have frenchies and they are by no means picky eaters, that bein said my female suffers environmental allergies and her medications can upset her tummy. Since feeding her Force exclusively her digestion has run much better. She has nice firm poos and is less gassy, which for a Frenchie is amazing. I really think this is a great food and recommend it.

To tell you the truth, frozen chicken cubes were kind of gross to handle, expensive and inconvenient when traveling. So we were on the lookout for an acceptable option for Squeegee, our picky-eater Australian Terrier. We were delighted when a relative gave us a sample of Honest Kitchen dog food, and Squeegee loved it. What's even better is, our pup has become more playful and social since she made the switch!

Zoey, my 4 year old Border Collie, just loves this Honest Kitchen food! It's easy to make up and so clean, all natural. I've never felt better about what I feed my fur-family than I do now that I've switched to Honest Kitchen. I also have the Salmon and Beef so my German Shepherd Puppy can eventually make the switch.

I have 2 terrier mix rescues, about 20 lbs each. I've tried a couple of other dehydrated foods in the past, the boys ate it but with no real excitement. In addition I found the smell of it distasteful. I'm so glad I tried Honest Kitchen! My boys love this food! They have never been so excited about meal time. They lick their bowls so clean I may consider eating out of them. :-) Another big plus for me, it smells delicious!

Our two mini schnauzers, Jake and Jesse, love the Honest Kitchen products. The turkey and chicken are their favorites. They also pester us for's okay because their healthy snacks! This is honestly the best dog food made on the market and we really appreciate all the effort, research and love Honest Kitchen has put into their product. We have two very healthy and happy schnauzers!!

My dogs seems to like this better than his home cooked food! I am going to try the grain free version but so far very happy with this. We have been mixing it in with his original food for the last week. He is prone to stomach upset, vomiting his food and itchy skin. So far no symptoms ;)

My dog LOVES this food. He always gobbles it down as fast as he can!

Written by Cindy | 8/27/15

My dogs gobble this food up with gusto! It hydrates well (quickly turns into a loose paste-like consistency when mixed with warm water -- not soupy at all) and has a faint garlic aroma, but actually smells delicious. I sometimes will use this to fill rubber Kong toys and freeze them to make a summer treat for the dogs.
