I decided to try out Force based on a girlfriend's recommendation for my 14 year old Lhasa Apso, Emma. She has been on a dry dental dog kibble for older dogs, but she always seems to be hungry. She is constantly grazing on deer poop or other equally disgusting tidbits she finds on the trail. I hoped adding Force into her diet with the dry kibble would replace nutrients her diet must be lacking. It seems to have worked! She loves, and I mean LOVES the taste of the food, and she doesn't seem constantly hungry. I still use some dry kibble to keep her teeth clean, but I think she would prefer if I fed her entirely Honest Kitchen's Force.

Our 5lb chihuahua LOVES this food! We looked all over for a good quality food for him, as close to RAW as we could but with a protein level that wouldn't cause Bailey anymore seizures. This seems to be the one and the best part is that HE LOVES IT and gets so excited about eating again! We are very pleased!

My maltese is an extremely picky eater, I think we went through 4 different brands/flavors of dog food before finding one she would even get near. I bought the samples of "embark" and "love" (which btw, thank you THK for offering the sample packs and quick shipping!!) thinking she would probably turn her nose up but what the heck, it was worth a try for the price and good reviews. Boy was I completely wrong! I think she may have broken the world record for fastest eater and was begging for more. Can't wait for my big box of food to come in and I know my pup can't wait either. Thank you SO much THK!

My two Australian Shepherds absolutely love this food! They can't wait for the 3minutes to be up and for me to set their bowls out for them :)
I was looking for a healthy, cost effective food that I could use as a substitute for home-made food I give them. Now they eat Honest Kitchen everyday for lunch, and they seem to enjoy it just as much as the food I prepare! As we all know, the true test of a dogs digestion is their poop, and with HonestKitchen, it's a perfect poop everytime!

My fluffy white little Bicon Frise, Coconut, is a picky eater and she suffers from allergies. So I wanted to find the best quality, grain-free food for her. From the very first meal, she has absolutely loved her Embark. And I feel so good about giving it to her. Thank you for providing a product that is loaded with quality ingredients--and love--from The Honest Kitchen!

Lady and Bella are picky American Eskimo dogs...they will not eat their dry dog food without the beef LOVE from THK. Those two precious dogs are little clowns in the kitchen as they watch me prepare the LOVE and wait as the reconstitution process works. They can't wait to lap it up and show everyone how they ate every last bite! Lady and Bella LOVE their beef LOVE!!! Thank you for an awesome product as I am extremely picky and concerned about any food or treats for our sweet doggies.

My dog is extremely fussy. This is the perfect size to keep around to rotate formulas and keep him from getting bored.

Bought a box of Love and my foster doggy loves it! He's such a picky eater. He's been used to kibble for so long that I don't think he realized that this food was meant for him. Now that I give it to him on a regular basis, he loves it. He's healthy, energetic and his coat is super shiny!

I really like the 2 lb starter box! Not only is it good for introducing your furkid to The Honest Kitchen line of foods, but it is also great for traveling! I highly recommend this product and I am glad that it is available!
