Description

The Honest Kitchen Brave Dehydrated Dog Food is a minimalist dog food designed for dogs with touchy tummies and certain food sensitivities. Each box contains only six, grain-free, nutritious ingredients — including Marine Stewardship Council-certified pollock — and a healthy dose of soluble fiber, good fat and irresistible flavor. Brave is higher in protein and moderate in calories. It’s great for dogs with food allergies or those who just require simplified diets.

Key Benefits

  • Grain-free limited ingredient dog food that contains only six, carefully chosen ingredients and is made with wild-caught Marine Stewardship Council Certified Pollock as the main protein source
  • Perfect for canines who need a limited ingredient diet, can't tolerate grain, poultry or white potatoes or just simply love the taste of fish.
  • Made with minimally processed, dehydrated, whole-food ingredients in the USA, with no ingredients from China
  • No by-products, preservatives or GMO ingredients
  • Easy to prepare, just add warm water, mix and serve with love in just 3 minutes!

Additional Details

This product is made with human grade food ingredients. It contains no animal feed grade ingredients and is made in an FDA inspected facility but it is intended for your dog to eat, not you! Although all ingredients in this product are gluten-free, production does take place in a facility that processes grains.

Feeding Instructions

Mix food with warm water. Stir well and hydrate for 3 minutes, then serve. Marvel can be served alone as a complete and balanced meal, as a healthy whole food topper for kibble, or in place of raw food when traveling.

Transition Instructions

For dogs making the change from a processed diet of kibble or canned food, our food should be introduced gradually, over a period of 4 to 7 days depending on your dog’s sensitivity. If your dog is already consuming a varied, raw or home cooked diet, our foods can usually be introduced more quickly, over one or 2 meals. Start by adding just a small amount of the Honest Kitchen (with water added) into your dog’s current meals. Gradually increase the amount of the Honest Kitchen while decreasing the amount of your dog’s original diet. This will allow the natural ‘friendly’ gut flora in the intestines to get accustomed to the new diet and become more efficient at digesting the new food. How much you start with will depend on the size of your pup and how sensitive they are to change. For some, ¼ of the Honest Kitchen and ¾ of the original diet may work well. For more sensitive dogs, start with a smaller amount. For more robust tummies, you may try ½ and ½. Feel free to adjust the amount and schedule to suit your pup’s individual needs.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Is your food raw?

Our recipes are made from dehydrated whole food ingredients, but they're not quite the same as raw. Dehydration is a slow, gentle method of preserving food. It helps to keep many of the natural nutrients in the raw ingredients in tact. On the other hand, cooking denatures many of these nutrients including delicate enzymes, vitamins, minerals and amino acids (making for a less nutritious finished product).

What exactly does 'Human Grade' mean?

Human Grade means ‘food grade’ or fit for human consumption. For us, it’s a line in the sand about the quality and integrity of the finished products we send out the door.We blend our healthy pet food in a human food facility that makes things like breakfast cereal and bakery mixes. So, we abide by the same strict standards for safety, cleanliness, record-keeping and overall quality as the place that whips up your favorite cookie dough.

How will my dog’s teeth get clean with a soft food?

Contrary to popular belief, kibble doesn't actually clean the teeth. For the most part, dogs (and some cats) actually swallow their kibble whole and don't chew their food at all. You'll know this if you've ever had the misfortune of seeing your pet regurgitate his kibble, when those pellets come back up the same way they went in! This means the pellets don't have a chance to come into much contact with the teeth, and even if they were to be crunched, they aren't really hard enough to have an abrasive action that's effective enough to scrape tartar from the teeth. If kibble is chewed (which may happen in some smaller dogs and cats) the sugars and refined carbohydrates are actually more likely to get impacted into the gum line, which is detrimental for the long term health of the teeth and mouth.

I can see bits of food in my dog’s stool, are they not absorbing the nutrients?

When dogs eat a high moisture, whole food diet such as ours, the stool will not look the same as it did when consuming a dry kibble or raw food. The stool will reflect the colorful ingredients going in. It's not abnormal to see pieces of carrots, spinach, etc. present in the stool. The nutrients, phyto-nutrients and antioxidants from the foods are still being absorbed. Since the food is high in moisture and fiber it's also common for the stool to be more voluminous. Our office dogs go 3 - 4 times a day.

Once I’ve added water, can I refrigerate the food? For how long?

Once the dehydrated food has been rehydrated with warm water, you may cover and refrigerate any uneaten portions for 2-3 days. Frozen leftovers will keep for even longer. We suggest adding a little bit of warm water to the mix and stirring before serving.

Do I have to add extras, like meat or other foods?

No, adding other ingredients to our diets is not necessary (except for our base mixes which require protein to be added). Our foods are formulated to meet the AAFCO Nutrient Profiles and can be fed alone. However, many of our customers love to mix up their companion’s meals with home-made extras. We encourage this because we think pet’s deserve variety in their diets just like we humans do. Our foods have balanced calcium: phosphorus ratios to allow you to add in extras in moderate amounts without throwing these important minerals outside their optimum ratios.

If I want to add extras, what do you recommend?

Popular add-ins are meat, raw meaty bones, cottage cheese, plain yogurt, veggies and fruits. We recommend 1/2 to 1 cup of extra ingredients for each dry-measured cup of the food.A more active dog would have these quantities added to the regular food serving. For a less active or senior pet, you can cut back the amount of Honest Kitchen food to allow for the additional ingredients being included, and prevent the calories from increasing too much.

How do I store your food and what is the shelf life?

Our dehydrated foods are naturally shelf stable and should be stored in a cool, dry place - out of sunlight. We don’t recommend refrigerating our food when it’s dry, because this can introduce moisture. If you want to freeze the food, you should hydrate it first (some of our customers like to freeze in individual pre-made portions). If you do choose to place the dry food in the freezer, we recommend keeping the box in the freezer for the remainder of its use.Our Complete Diets have a shelf life of twelve months from the manufacturing date, depending on the ambient temperature and humidity where you live. The date of manufacture is printed on the top of every box in a specially designed ‘tear out and keep’ card.

These simplified recipes are easy on the digestive tract and feature proteins like wild-caught Pollock, free-range chicken and cage-free turkey.

  • 5 yr old rescue dog

    Adopted a 5 yr old rescue dog who was a bit thin. Seeking a healthy dog food we immediately put him on Honest Kirchen foods, including grain-free base, chicken and quinoa and fish and coconut. I alternate the meals and put different proteins in for his twice-daily meals. Right from the start our little rescue dog tucked right in and had no digestive problems what-so-ever. He eats with relish and is eager for his breakfast and dinner. I add human grade proteins, raw or cooked, fresh and canned fish, eggs and cottage cheese. So far his teeth are still bright and shiny, he has no skin issues or ear problems and his coat is shiny.

  • best find in a long time!!!

    By on

    I have 4 dogs and 1 has incredibly bad food allergies, Another is a super picky eater, the other 2 eat anything. I have been researching wet food options (allergy pup can't have kibble as is allergic) and after much discussion and reading I found/was showed dehydrated and decided to give it a try. It's more cost effective and the dogs loved it. Even my picky eater was snubbing her regular food for this! It smells yummy and I'll admit I tried it too- it was like a nice light but dense fish soup! Very simple to rehydrate and they all were members of the clean plate club looking for more :)

  • Green Fish Flavored Oatmeal

    By on

    I bought this product because my 9 year old Aussie is starting to show signs that he is not a puppy anymore. His premium dry kibble was suddenly giving him terrible gas and he seemed to have less energy and a declining mood. This food is expensive, but I thought that if it helped at all that it would be worth it. Jay has only been eating his new Honest Kitchen for 3 days and it has already wildly exceeded my hopes. The gas is 100% gone and Jay is running around the house with true Aussie enthusiasm. He is ultra picky and will refuse to eat anything that doesn't pass his initial sniff test so I was a little worried about what he would think of a food that looks and smells like green fish flavored I bought this product because my 9 year old Aussie is starting to show signs that he is not a puppy anymore.

He is ultra picky and will refuse to eat anything that doesn't pass his initial sniff test so I was a little worried about what he would think of a food that looks and smells like green fish flavored oatmeal. He acts exactly like he is being given fresh meat, he starts chowing down as soon an his bowl hits the ground and doesn't stop until the bowl is clean. He can be a kibble vaccuum but the soft texture of this food and the way that it moves around the bowl actually slows him down. I add a little of the HK Proper Toppers for a little texture and those are a hit as well. The product is inside a resealable plastic bag that arrives in an outer cardboard carton. The food is convenient it it's original packaging and doesn't require a container. Dehydrated the food looks like green oatmeal and has a mild fish smell. Once you add the warm water, it turns into green paste that punches you in the face with the smell of oven baked polluck. As many of the other reviewers said, I add a little bit less water than called for. My pup doesn't mind if it is ultra watery, but it is harder for him to chase around the bowl and he drinks plenty of water. It must be very filling compared to dry kibble because although he very obviously loves it, my pup doesn't eat the full 1 cup that is his recommended amount. I did a 100% transition from a premium kibble to HK without any mixing because of my pup's reaction to his kibble. There were zero ill effects to the quick transition, normal stool, no gas, no vomitting, no odd behavior/apparent discomfort. I am definitely a convert to Honest Kitchen but I think I will try another flavor and see if my dog can tolerate it as well as this one. Each time I mix the food the smell bothers me a little bit more. It isn't a gross smell, it truly does smell like you were baking polluck but.. Our dog bowls are in our living room and having it smell like fish for a couple hours a day is a little unpleasant. If another flavor doesn't work out, I will continue to buy this one. Fish smell is worth the positive benefits to my pup. … more

  • She loved this food

    By on

    Bought this variety of Honest Kitchen to try to stop my shiloh’s winter itch. She made the switch easily, no problems. I did find that the Brave was more liquidy than other Honest Kitchen varieties we’ve tried and she always ended up leaving a lot of food stuck in the bottom of her bowl which her yorkie brother gladly cleaned up! Although she loved the Brave we will be switching back to the HK turkey variety because this variety was just too fibrous for her and she had numerous daily bm’s. Also, found out she does not have a food allergy so we’re happy to switch her back to her other HK.

  • A big hit in our house.

    We do rescue for GSP's and have four at this time that we have adopted. One of the girls has allergy problems and seasonal alopecia and has seen a veterinarian dermatologist as well as our family vets about all her problems. We have just helped her cope with this throughout the years and know it has it's ups and downs. This was suggested by a veterinarian nutritionist for her skin issues and to help her lose weight. OH MY GOSH, she loves it, they all love it and her skin inflammation cleared up very quickly and her coat and the new hair growing in is so shiny and healthy looking.

  • Fishy - but it's supposed to be

    By on

    My pup didn't care for this one. He tried it, but that was the end for him. I was surprised, because he likes the fish treats. He likes the other Honest Kitchen foods he's tried, likes some better than others. Oh - and it REALLY REALLY smells so fishy, I had to become a mouth-breather while preparing this one! :) Totally recommend Chewy for quick shipping though!!!

    I switched to this food because of my English Bulldogs food allergies and the fact that wanted better for her. I am so happy with the Honest Kitchen! Her skin and coat look amazing and she loves it! The smell isn't the best but I am not a fish eater! The 10lb box lasts me about 4 weeks. Definitely love this product and I already recommend it to all my friends.

  • tasty and healthy

    By on

    My very picky, sensitive four-year-old Havanese was refusing to eat anything but home-cooked meals. It took a while to transition her to this food--she didn't love it at first--but once I started sprinkling a little cheese on top she went for it. Now she gobbles it up. Her stool is great. She is full of energy. Her coat is shiny, eyes are bright. What a pleasure to hear her licking up every last bit.

  • Best food ever

    By on

    We switched our mini Poodle to the Kindly base mix due to food allergies and stomach issues and she loves it. She goes to pantry/refrigerator and asks for her food. It cleared up her constipation. Her coat looks better and she has more energy. She is friendlier and wants to be petted more. Now going back and ordering new kinds of Honest Kitchen. We are very pleased.
