Natural nutrition begins with the Instinct Be Natural Real Beef & Barley Recipe Freeze-Dried Raw Coated Dry Dog Food. The recipe starts with USA-raised beef for plenty of all-natural protein to support healthy, lean muscles, and never contains any fillers, corn, wheat, soy, by-product meals or artificial preservatives and colors.

    Both dogs LOVE this food

    By on

    I have two dogs and they both love this food. My husky mix skips meals often, but he hasn't as much when I switched to this food. It does have a stronger scent then other kibbles I've given them, but I think they like that. They even accept it as treats when training!

    Mmm. good food

    By on

    Mix this with the lamb 50/50 and my pet loves it. I give her Caesar wet dog food topper twice a week as a treat when I lower the dry food to one half of the amount at the dinner meal and use the Caesar as topper.

    My dog likes everything but this makes her sick

    By on

    My dog will eat anything but this is the first time I have fed her this food and she runs to the door in the morning and eats dead grass, as it is still winter here and she vomits. It must bother her stomach. She doesn't have a problem eating anything and never has had this issue. Even when I add different people food in her bowl, no problems. Maybe too rich, IDK.

    Great food but dogs not a fan

    By on

    As an owner I love this food for the quality of ingredients and nutritional levels. However..one of my dogs just doesnt like it. I'm a tough love mama but after 2 weeks he still picks at it and leaves half of it behind, which is completely abnormal for him.

    My dog loves this. He’s a fan to most of the instinct dog food and the price for the big bag was such a deal.

    Dogs Like It

    By on

    My three dogs seem to like it. We have used the salmon, veal, chicken and beef recipes. I feel Instinct is a good healthy kibble choice, and I’m happy to have found this type with grains since this is the route I've decided to take.

    Good Stuff

    By on

    My pup loves the food but it’s only available in either 4.5 lb or 25 lb bags ... why isn’t it available in 12 or 15 lb bag?
