Default The Honest Kitchen

May be a stupid question, but uh, how do you feed it?

I really really like the idea of it, and the company behind THK, but I remember I got a sample over a year ago and tried to give it to Jackson and he looked at me like I was nuts. It was just like... parsley looking and smelling. Kind of soupy-ish. Just weird? So I never looked into it again.

But just was looking at their site and really loving it - wouldn't mind feeding it a few nights a week for something different.

Did I do it wrong, do you think? Anyone else feed it? Dogs like it? Feedback?

That's pretty much what it looks like, lol. Some dogs will eat it and for others it just isn't palatable. Frodo will eat all of the flavors except the Thrive, but he prefers raw, kibble, or canned.

Lol, okay. Well then I guess I did it right and it'd probably be a waste of $$$ because Jackson won't touch stuff like that. Although I can't remember which formula we tried.

Just saw this photo:

And yup, that's what it looked like, and he wouldn't touch it.

If you tried the fish.. even my JRTs aren't fans (and they eat EVERYTHING) the non fish grain free one was a hit. Even Bounce, who is the opposite and hates everything liked it.

IF you want a dry raw this isn't dehydrated by freeze dried http://www.k9natural.com/
My dogs all say its like crack. Dekka is on it and everyone else wants it.

Stella and Chewy's also makes a freeze dried that most dogs go nuts over!

And Zeal (the whitefish THK that Dekka is talking about) is AWESOME, but be prepared to pay an arm and a leg. The big box (which is believe is ten pounds?) sells for like $120 O.o

My dogs think it's delicious but, um, they are perhaps not the pickiest of eaters shall we say. Though Kim is a bit particular and would rather starve than eat a raw fish...

It's $$$$$$ to feed though if you have many/big dogs so mine haven't had it as a meal very often.

Then you got it for a good price. Straight from THK it is already $108. That is their most expensive formula.

I'm not quite sure what you are trying to say in the second part of the post, lol. All of their formulas have one name names.

Gavroche agrees with her, and he's also a chowhound.

The ONLY food Frodo has EVER turned down was THK Thrive, lol. So I even tell people with non-picky dogs that their pet might not like it. Frodo does prefer it in the powdered, non-hydrated form though. Don't ask me how I know >.<
