HUMAN GRADE PET FOOD – THE HONEST KITCHEN

By Sunday, August 7, 2016 29 , Permalink

Last Friday when I showed you the arrival of two very special boxes, did you think there was human grade pet food from The Honest Kitchen inside?…

HUMAN GRADE PET FOOD - THE HONEST KITCHEN

There was…

HUMAN GRADE PET FOOD - THE HONEST KITCHENThe Honest Kitchen is the only dog food the Boys consume. They love it and I trust it.

Harley’s been eating it for several years now and Jaxson – practically his entire life. While there are other dehydrated pet foods on the the market, I find THK to be closer to fresh whole food loaded with natural nutrition. Just what I want in dog food! #doodlelicious

HERE’S LUCY’S STORY –

HUMAN GRADE PET FOOD - THE HONEST KITCHEN

HERE’S OUR STORY –

After bringing Harley home, I transitioned him to an award-winning biologically appropriate kibble. It came highly recommended by his vet, and I trusted her with his health.

Leo came along and the blog was born. Research for post topics became my late night obsession, and one evening dog food was my subject. Thoughts about what they were eating and how it was converted into those tiny little pellets haunted me. #hitchcocklike

I discussed my concerns with their vet and was blown away when she confessed her preference for raw feeding. “Really?” was about all I could utter. You see, I have “mad” respect for raw feeders, some of my best friends are raw feeders, but I’m just not there. #mystruggleisreal

She said a great place for me would be in the world of dehydrated pet food. It bridged that gap between kibble and raw, a place she felt I could easily call home. #shegetsme

I transitioned slowly and once they started eating THK – we’ve never looked back.

100% human grade ensures –

  • Quality
  • Purity
  • Safety

Human grade means “food grade” or fit for human consumption. #speakingmydoodlelanguage

      Happy Monday Jeanne! There’s nothing more satisfying when it comes to taking care of pets then to know they are eating healthy. We are elated to work with THK because we believe it their product. Can’t wait to share more. Take care – have a wonderful week!

    Hey Cathy I wanted to tell you about another great product we discovered this weekend, recommended to me by some other doodle moms. It’s Cowboy Magic concentrated detangler and leave in conditioner. I can’t believe the difference it made on Piper’s corse coat! A total “doodle must” in my book!!!

      OMDoodle Amanda! That is fantastic! I am always looking for products that will help with detangling. Will certainly look this up. I am in search for a good medicated shampoo for Harley. Apparently the oatmeal shampoo only aggravates his environmental allergies #ugh Thanks for the tip my friend. How’s things with you?

        We’re doing here in Austin Doodletown! We took Piper and Wrigley on a 2.5 hr. hike and swimming session yesterday morning at one of our local greenbelts. We all had a blast! And then those worn-out babies were much more compliant for their full baths and grooming sessions…. And then they had a worn-out mama to match!

    This is fantastic! The Honest Kitchen is an amazing product and I fed it to my dogs for two years, mixing it into my raw meals. I so wish I could return to them – they are truly one of the bests on the market with their quality and love of dogs.

      I promise you – “knock on wood and scare the devil” – since I made the switch with Harley years ago, loose stool has become a thing of the past. It’s removed all tummy issues this dog has ever had. I’m walking on clouds partnering with this incredible company!

    We always heard good things about the Honest Kitchen. But we wish there were not 87 foods to choose from

      Well you know, everybody’s got to appeal to the masses when in business 🙂 Try the sample bundle for a dollar! I think my two favorite French Bulldogs will like it 🙂

      Thanks Chastity! Even Doodle Dad knows how to mix their food up! 🙂 Super easy, nutrias and convenient. All my favorites!

      Thanks Nicole! We’re super excited. Hope to help some folks out there who might be looking for an alternative. I’m also excited about meeting more pet parents here in Charleston. #mypeeps Have a great week!

    Jax and Harley look so happy and cute looking at the boxes on the porch. I’m going to pass along this blog to my friends with pets.

      Yes, please do! Have them take advantage of the sample bundle taste test – they can see for themselves that it’s truly healthy, tasty and full of nutritious goodness!

    We have several friends who eat Honest Kitchen food, and we have tried some treats they have. Glad you boys are liking it. It sounds like real good food for you. We aren’t ready for full raw yet either, but are slowing working more and more in that direction.

    • Cathy Bennett
      August 8, 2016

      So far Emma, The Honest Kitchen is the PAWfect fit for us. I like everything about it!

    I was doing The Honest Kitchen in Denver, but then with the move and the Doodles living with my sister… it seemed too much to ask her to do! Thanks for the reminder. Lilly loved it. Dash, not so much. We might have to come back over! Congrats on the partnership!!

      I remember when you made that decision. If you’re going back to THK – here’s a suggestion (worked in our house). I found out early that Harley & Jaxson have their own consistency preferences. At first I was making it together in one bowl, then splitting it up once mixed. Didn’t work out to well, someone wasn’t happy. I quickly switched techniques and fix them in their individual bowls, and many times they get different toppings. Yes, I’m a sous chef for Doodles! LOL Call me if you want to talk about some other ideas – I’m here for you girlfriend – 703-400-3498 🙂 #wereinthistogether

    I have never tried The Honest Kitchen so I may check out the samples. We do mix things up a bit with food, but like you we are somewhere in between kibble and raw.

    • Cathy Bennett
      August 10, 2016

      Here’s what I love about THK – I’m able to add real, whole human foods to it from time to time – fresh fruits and veggies, even ground chicken and beef, and I feel so much better knowing what their eating. Let me know what you think after trying the samples and please do not hesitate to call me if you’ve got questions – 703-400-3498 Take care!

    Hi Cathy! I love THK, too (except for the smell), BUT my girls just can’t handle it. I do like the bone broth, though, and have used it on occasion.

    Congrats on your partnership with THK!

    • Cathy Bennett
      August 10, 2016

      Doodle Dad used to struggle with the smell too, I think he’s finally used to it. The only struggle we had was finding the right consistency for each Dood. They have their preferences LOL Look for coupon codes from us on other products and pawhaps you can try some more of their new broth flavors with a discount on us! Take care friend 🙂

    Congratulations on such a wonderful partnership! We have tried THK foods and treats and the crew loved them. They seem like a great company. With so many options out there, I just haven’t made up my mind where we might go from high quality kibble, and right now I am making homemade toppers for that. But I don’t feel like we’re where we are going to be yet, if that makes sense. Raw has my attention, but like you I just can’t quite go there. I look forward to learning more about this from you!

      We are kindred spirits JanK. My Virginia vet never pushed raw on me, but we’d talk for hours and she was a true believer in that diet style. Between her and Kimberly of Keep the Tail Wagging – I could talk for days because I find it so fascinating. I just don’t think I’m ready to take that plunge. I tried a raw marrow bone once. Had to go to the groomer to get the smell out of his furry face the next day #ugh Just not ready yet 🙂 We truly love THK – so stick around as I try some recipes and introduce “new foods.” How are you making homemade toppers? That’s a great blog post #hint-hint! Have a great weekend 🙂
