picky pup loves this food

My 2 year old Whippet mix Lila has been super picky since she was 3 months old but devours this food every day. I thought she might pick out the freeze dried chicken pieces and just eat those but she eats the kibble pieces without spitting them out like she does with other food. It's a bit expensive but it's high quality food and our vet recently said whatever we're giving her - don't change it! Her coat is super shiny and she's at a great weight.

Not enough freeze dried

I had bought a 9oz. bag of the freeze dried chicken. My picky eater loved it and had her head in the bowl before I could fill it. But the price made me try the kibble with freeze dried pieces. At first she gobbled that up but eventually picked out all the freeze dried and reluctantly ate the kibble. Not always eating the kibble. There is very little freeze dried in the bag. I have opened the bag and there was no freeze dried pieces visible. Definitely needs more.

Loves the freeze dry

Chulo loves the freeze dried pieces, but will not touch the dry kibble. My new choc cocker is so picky with dry kibble. I’ve tried several different kinds, but having no luck. This one kinda even stinks. Doesn’t smell appetizing, any help in a selection would be appreciated.

Instinct Raw Boost

My 8 year old Maltese absolutely loves this new food! Chewy recently was out of stock of the food she was previously on and although I was skeptical, she ate twice as much as she did from the previous food. Thank you for this suggestion and we will be ordering this brand from now on

My dogs love it

I wanted a healthier option for my two pit mixes. I came across this in my local pet supply store. They enjoyed it so much I changed the brand I get auto shipped via Chewy. Best choice I’ve made.

Good food, bad inventory management

Chewy continues to fail at keeping this in stock. I am looking into ordering from a different site.

Beyond our expectations

Bomi was quite picky for her food recently, we have to add wet food into her meal in order for her to eat. I can’t believe that she is willing to eat this without any topping or wet food mixed. And she had no issue after having this at all!!!! Amazing!

A classic for our house

A personal favorite in my house. It is the easiest on my shepherd's tummy and my little terrier really likes stealing this from her sister's bowl, haha. I always recommend it to friends because it is not ridiculously expensive without sacrificing quality.

Good dog food

My dog is picky but he enjoys this brand and the food. It’s not completely boring kibble. And I add some salmon oil and he eats it great.
