This is my dog Archer's absolute favorite. When we feed him this, afterwards it looks like we didn't feed him at all because he licks the bowl completely clean. He loves it!! So glad we found this; he's a picky eater.

Both of our dogs love this food. Rosie is a really picky eater who has previously rejected Blue Buffalo Wilderness and Canidae wet and dry foods. She enjoys Honest Kitchen so much that she also tries to eat the cats'!!

I would like to say thank you for the best dog food . My dogs Phin and Ritchie love love love the chicken force . I was feeding my guys Blue Buffalo and then switched to Halo . I can honestly say this is by far the best .

Eli has a sensitive system and appears to be allergic to most mainstream brand foods. He would sorta eat a few linked then later go back and eat a few more. Like a cat, just sort of nibbled all day.
We decided to give Honest Kitchen a try rather than go to the vet for more allergy pills. Not only does Eli stand at my side the entire 3 minutes his food is hydrating, he eats all his food in one sitting. He's almost stopped itching completely and doesn't chew his paws any longer! Yay for Honest Kitchen's Force!!! We thank you!

I was on a search for a high quality, healthy dog food after my 10 year old pup got pancreatitis. I thought I had been feeding my dogs a premium kibble but after doing research, I learned that highly processed kibble is not very nutritious at all. I was fed up with my vet's recommendation to put my dog on a low quality gastrointestinal canned food for the rest of her life. I simply refused. During my research, I came across Honest Kitchen. Now, both my dogs eat only Honest Kitchen (Force, Nuzzles, Pecks treats) and they are doing great. Some of the changes I've noticed are: non-smelly poops, no more throwing up due to upset tummies, improved breath, and less shedding. They also LOVE this food. It's the highlight of their day. The only downside from their perspective, is having to wait a few minutes for the food to be ready. So glad to have switched to Honest Kitchen!

Bought a small sample box from the pet store and brought it home for my puppies. They absolutely loved it!

At the vet`s office I asked the guy with black lab how old is his puppy...and he said he is 11 years old!! That dog did not have a single black hair on his body neither looked like senior. I asked him: what do you feed your dog? And he said Honest kitchen. I came home and googled it. CHicken flavor was first sample for my pitlab mix and he did not hesitate a minute a licked all dish!! Was not sure if he would even try it but it sure smelled like chicken soup!:-). Love the ingredients list!!
Great job, wish I knew about you earlier.

Great food! Vader enjoys all his meals with THK! Deserves only the best!

Tank loves his food! Scarfs everything down each time! Licks the bowl clean. Healthy and happy pet.

Our dog loves this food and the best part it smells good while you're making it. I've never seen my dog so excited to eat!

Written by Jen | 6/4/15

I love THK! I adopted my 6 y/o terrier Lexie about 9 months ago. When I brought her home, she was sick and not eating the Science Diet the rescue gave me. So I tried feeding her some Force and she gobbled it up! Never showed any signs of discomfort from switching dog foods cold turkey. To this day, she's the pickiest eater I've ever met, but she gets so excited to eat THK (we've tried Force, Embark, and Zeal) and gobbles it down every time! I'm so happy I've found this brand! My only complaint is they don't have a high-fiber, grain-free food. Lexie needs extra fiber so we supplement 1tsp of flaxseed powder a day (1/2 tsp with each meal; she weighs 14lbs) to keep her anal glands from impacting.
