The Honest Kitchen in Our Petacular Event

 Hi Neighbors!

Here is the newest addition to our Petacular Event - The Honest Kitchen. Hope's Cafe had the opportunity to review some food and treats from The Honest Kitchen.  Here is what she found.

Some of you may wonder just how pet food can be unique. Here is just a little information about what makes The Honest Kitchen so different.

"There’s a lot we do (and a lot we don’t do) when we make our pet food, to ensure it stays natural and human grade from the farm, all the way to your pet’s bowl. Our foods are made in a human food facility, not in a pet food plant, which means they’re held to the same quality standards as the food you eat.

Here’s how we do it!

  1. Our ingredients are purchased directly from suppliers we trust, in the human food business. We’ve worked with many of the same suppliers since we began in 2002.
  2. The ingredients are harvested at the peak of their ripeness, then washed and trimmed to size (our root vegetables are finely diced to ensure they’re easy to digest).
  3. Moisture is removed by gently dehydrating each ingredient. This slow process is much gentler than cooking, canning or extruding and helps protect the nutrition that mother nature put in each ingredient.
  4. The finished product is a compact, nutrient-dense blend of whole food that tastes and smells delicious.
  5. When you rehydrate our natural pet foods with pure warm water, the color, taste, texture and smell closely resembles fresh foods. We know, because we taste-test everything we make!"


Pet food that is human grade, and all natural! I knew my dogs sometimes eat better than I do!  I received a trial of the Force Dog Food, Keen Dog Food, and a canister of the Quickies Sweetheart Treats for review. Since our pets had already eaten that day, we tried out the Quickies first. These are simply dehydrated haddock-no additives, no junk. The treats are tiny heart-shapes, perfect for Valentine's Day! I love the small size, because you can spoil your dog without overdoing the treats. They are also great to use while training. The size makes it easy to carry a handful in your pocket, and reward your pet's good behavior! Why not give your pup a Valentine's Day treat this year?! Oh, and keep out of reach of your feline friends too-ours got hold of the canister, and because of the fishy smell, decided to try some-she loved them too!


The dog food is, as I said, very unique. It comes in a dry, powdery form. Recommended portions are given on the package, and for Glory, my Sheltie, I mixed 1/2 cup of the food with 3/4 cup of warm water for 1 serving. They recommend dividing a daily portion into 2 separate meals, so that's what I did. After stirring, I let it set for a couple minutes. If you've ever made box stuffing mix, that's almost what this is like. Adding the water rehydrates the ingredients, and you end up with a healthy, hearty meal for your dog to enjoy! Let me show you the process in pictures.

1-Measure out the dry food
2-Add warm water
3-After a few minutes, your dog has a wonderful meal!
Glory really enjoyed her meal-although she did have to fend off our other dogs, who wanted to get in on the feast. Yes, I did share some of the second box with them-they literally wolfed it down! 

Wow, this is good.
Hey, that's my food dish!
Almost done...
Literally licked the bowl clean!
As you can see, the Honest Kitchen foods were a big hit with our pups! I am thrilled to find a company that makes all natural dog food, with ingredients I can not only pronounce, but I know what they are! Chicken, potatoes, basil, papaya, green beans...these are just a few of the foods used to make a tasty, healthy, natural meal for your furry friend from The Honest Kitchen!

One of our readers is going to receive a 4 lb. box of Honest Kitchen's Force Dog Food!  Be sure to enter and share about Honest Kitchen!

I'm assuming you meant the sponsor's website and not fruitables. I'd like to try the love dog food simply because I love the name!

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
