The Honest Kitchen Preference Grain-Free Dehydrated Dog Base Mix is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 179.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT DOG FOOD! My dogs absolutely LOVE this food. I have a Rhodesian Ridgeback with multiple food allergies and a mini schnauzer with grain intolerances and is also a fairly picky eater.. all of her life she's only eaten every other day of just half her food - but she eats every time I offer this to her and wants more! I've found the best way to make it is just heat up water in a coffee maker and let it sit for 5 minutes. I usually give my dogs their raw meat (fish and raw chicken legs) in the morning and this food at night so I don't have to make it as often (not that this food is a hassle I'm just incredibly lazy). I've also found if you choose to prepare extra to store in the fridge for a quick feeding - you'll have to add 1/4 to 3/4 cup more water. Depending on how your dog likes their food - a couple tablespoons of water when you're ready to feed as the food will soak up every drop; although the food is still wet, it'll crumble like a pie crust if it's been in the fridge

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dog food Honest Kitchen is the one dog food that has served me well in feeding my dogs. I have had two rescue dogs in the past and one from Europe. All three have had digestive and allergy problems. Honest Kitchen is the one food they all liked and thrived on. I prefer Preference as I like to add my own protein. Highly recommend this brand for any dog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buddy approves! Buddy has tried so many different types of foods and this one was perfect for him! He and his belly approved! I wanted to steer him away from kibble just because it wasn't healthy. I wanted a homemade diet. I found it difficult to make him a homemade diet because I wasn't sure what nutrients or vitamins to include and I just didn't have time to prepare all these meals. I don't consider myself a nutritionist. But, I have learned a lot. After doing extensive research and reading other's reviews, I decided to try honest kitchen. And let me tell you it truly is The Honest Kitchen! The dehydrated contents smell and look fresh. Preparing it is a breeze! I alternate the proteins weekly. I also add some salmon oil or coconut oil to his food. Best of all, it smells good and Buddy really loves it! I'm so happy his logs have become soft and firm with that brown hue again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent additive to raw diet First I love all Honest Kitchen products. I really like that I can use this for my vegetable base and add whatever protein I want. I travel a lot with my dogs and this is an easy base to carry along.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for even the pickiest eaters! We have been using Honest Kitchen Preference since my girl went through Chemo. She refused any regular dog food, and the VAST majority of food bases we tried. Anything with celery is a major NO GO. But, Preference is a winner. I think it's the spinach. She will eat this happily. We vary her proteins... eggs, chicken, gizzards, livers, hearts, fish, turkey, pork, low fat beef. We use homemade bone broth and a bit of hot water when we mix it. We fix each meal fresh *(except the meat... big dogs, so I cook 4 or 5 days of meat at a time)* I heat their meat before mixing it in to their re-hydrated base mix and even when my Nami girl is being super picky she'll still eat it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous! My 5 year old Golden Retriever was recently diagnosed with lymphoma. We decided to forego chemo as he was diagnosed as "late stage". My heart was so heavy and he was not doing well. Within a week of the news he was not eating his regular food (high grade grain free kibble) and was becoming lethargic. So I started cooking for him. Chicken, beef, liver, etc. I found a "lymphoma diet" online and was cooking that up for him. He ate it reluctantly and I worried about his 'doggie' nutrition. As I searched, I found HK Preference Base! I just add the meat I was already cooking to the base. My dog LOVES it! He eats it voraciously. Within a week of starting him on it, his energy has rebounded and he is like his old self. When he hears me prepping his food he runs to the kitchen and waits patiently for his bowl. When I put it down he laps it up and makes sure he eats anything that falls out of the bowl as well! Whether this is some miracle cure or if it's just a moment of happiness for him I'm glad I found this product! I can't imagine ever feeding any pet anything else! Thank you Honest Kitchen!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, great supplier I admit I had my doubts when I first mixed this up for my GSD since it looks like algae, but he loves it. He recently survived mesenteric torsion surgery and has IBD so I needed a top grade food that would help his intestines recover. Stools have been great and his energy level is better than I've seen in a year. I must also mention that Chewy has great prices and their shipping is the fastest I've seen. With such great service, I will come here for all my pet needs!
