Purina ONE® SmartBlend® True Instinct Formula With Real Turkey & Venison Dog Food is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 487.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bo and Jake LOVE It Bo is a Catahoula/Border Collie Mix, he has always had trouble with dry skin in the fall and winter months. Itchy Itchy..Jake is a Full Blooded Catahoula Leopard Hound who has had trouble with both his hind legs...pulled tendons and such. We started the 28 day challenge with the Turkey and Venison and they loved it. I noticed that Bo was not as itchy because of the dry skin and Jake is actually getting more lean. Both of their coats are shiny and they have great energy. Bo will be 12 in March 2017 and Jake will be 10 in February 2017. They sure don't act it. We are very happy we made the switch for our beautiful boys!!! Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thankful for this product! I started my doggie mom stage almost 8 years ago with my great Dane Blue. I had taken him so many times to the vet with flaky skin, itchiness and inability to keep a decent weight. (Always too thin). The vet finally told me I would need to get him allergy shots at a specialist over an hour away from our home at almost 600 bucks a month. I was devastated. His last option was to switch his food. I tried so many different foods. Even the natural balls made with ground beef and oatmeal. A few years ago, I came across the turkey and venison and was always instructed to check the first two analysis of the protein and fat. I was impressed with the 30/17 the "One" had. So I used it. And Blue looks amazing, keeps a great full weight and even gets lots of compliments now. He has also welcomed an Alaskan Malamute brother who is just over half a year and let me tell you....Timber looks amazing! I would never switch their food again. I love that it keeps my babies in the best of conditions. One happy mommy here!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They Love It! The 28 day challenge really is a challenge when it comes to food they absolutely love!i received this dog food free to review, the opinions stated are 100% my own honest unbiased opinions.My dogs have been struggling with weight and energy,my vet told me i needed to change dog food, so when i got this bag of dog food i was eager to see how it would help.So far they have been more energetic and my older dog is 10 years old, acting just like a puppy every day!her coat is a lot more healthy and she hasn't been as itchy as she has in the past fall and winter months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mini Dachshund Approved I have always feed my long-haired miniature dachshunds a specialty, veterinarian recommended dry kibble, with excellent results, but find it a hassle to have to make special trips to the specialty pet food store, so I took the Purina One SmartBlend 28 day challenge. I found it appealing that it comes from a trusted brand, so I can be assured it is quality tested, and nutritionally balanced, with the added convenience of being available at most grocery, mass merchandise, and online retailers!I did blend their previous kibble with the new Purina One SmartBlend for a few days to introduce it, and neither experienced any stomach upset. My expectations for a quality dog food are appealing taste (dogs readily eat it), healthy coats, lots of energy, and minimal stool. I feel like Purina One SmartBlend easily meets all of those standards, and therefore I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it! My dogs REALLY love this kibble! It looks and smells like high quality dog food!I typically feed my mini dachshunds a dry kibble for small breeds with "smaller bite-sized" kibble, and they had no problem with the Purina One SmartBlend dry kibble, in fact they LOVED the larger sized freeze dried bits, and I had to make sure they didn't steal the others' bits! I think it would be appropriate for nearly any sized dog.*I received a free product for the purpose of my review. Opinions are 100% my own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Picky Eater No More I have an American Pitbull Terrier who was a very picky eater. It would take her all day to finish her bowl of dog food. She had bad gas, bad doggy breath and kept excessively pooping in the backyard it was a bit too much. She was on a lamb and rice diet and we had tried other expensive brands but nothing seemed to work or take until we hit the Mother load when we found Purina One Smartblend True Instinct Turkey & Venison dog food. She absolutely loved it and ate it all up in one serving. She never left her bowl until it was licked clean. Bowl licking good, she never did that before. Thank you Purina for developing such a good healthy choice of dog food. If I eat Turkey and Venison why shouldn't my dog be able to as well. You've made my Cali girl very happy. No more gas,no more bad breath and finally pooping normally in the backyard. Her coat has never looked better. I can also tell the positive change in her personality. If she could talk she would thank you guys as well. Thanks again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 2 dogs love it. Bo,Siberian Husky, loves the chicken & rice. He will pick out all the chicken pieces and eat them first,then eat the rest. Lucky my small wire haired terrier mix does the same thing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Picky Eater Approved! I received a complimentary bag of Purina One SmartBlend True Instinct Turkey and Venison dry dog food for review purposes. These are my unbiased, honest opinions.My dog is a surprisingly picky eater and usually approaches new food with much caution, only beginning to eat any once he's very hungry. However, he took to Purina One's Turkey and Venison blend immediately! It was clear to see that he loved the taste and texture of this food! This particular SmartBlend food is not only crunchy bites, but tender, meaty pieces as well, which I think it's great for young and old dogs alike. This aspect obviously went well with my dog, as we're out of this food!Over a few weeks, I started noticing the promised benefits of SmartBlend dog food. My dog's coat looks shinier and his eyes were definitely brighter! He even had a tiny, itty bit more of energy. (He's an old dog, who is usually very tired, so I didn't expect him to be running laps or anything - have to be realistic). Overall, I believe this food lives up to it's claims, and tastes great for any pup! I would recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy husky! I started the 28 day Challenge with Purina because I received a free product in exchange for my review, but all opinions are 100% my own. When I started to switch my dogs food to purina I noticed that she did enjoy it which was a very good sign because she can be picky and not eat food that doesn't taste good to her. After a week it was obvious that she loved the bag of Purina One smart blend true instinct that I got with my $3 coupon I printed when I signed up for the challenge. By the 2nd and 3rd week on this challenge I noticed that her eyes looked brighter and that she had this kinda of younger look in them, she is 9 years old, her energy had changed as well she seemed more alert in the mornings which my mom even noticed when they go for their morning runs. By the last week of the challenge I was convinced how healthy and beneficial purina one smart blend true instinct is for my husky because I saw how her skin and fur just appeared and felt healthier then before she had started the challenge. This challenge has definitely proven how good this dog food is and greatly recommend anyone instead to give it a try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Purina Dogs I am a member of Smiley 360 review website. They provided me with a free coupon for a bag of Purina One True Instinct product of my choice and I joined the Purina 28 day challenge. After the transition period, my dogs went from apathy towards their food to loving meal times. They both have allergies so I chose the Grain Free True Intinict Smartblend recipe and both my dogs are thriving. Both are showing more energy and they simply have more pep in their step. I feel the high protein level and absence of fillers have had a positive effect on the health of my babies. I love my dogs and now I feed them Purina One.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mail Call I signed my little girl up for the 28 day challenge and got the free sample in the mail. I opened the package and gave her a few bits and she was begging for more so I filled her bowl. She gobbled it up and was looking for more so I went to the store and used my coupons they sent to get her some more. She loves this food and has so much more energy and is more alert. The only problem is now she expects more of it every time I get the mail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog loves this! so I did not receive my sample or coupon for my 28 day challenge. I notified Smiley360 and they are sending it again. I did go buy this for my dog so I could give an accurate review. My dog LOVES this. I have never seen her love a food as much as she does this. She gets excited and jumps around while barking and "talking". My dog as not been this excited in years! She is acting like a pup again. Since giving her Purina One she is begging for more. She comes to me and "talks" until I give her more. We usually feed her twice a day as we have done for the past eight years. She will not go to bed know until I give her some as a "treat". If that does not tell you how much my dog loves this I don't know what will! I will be buying Purina One for her from now on! My friends are now going to try this with their dog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect food for my Aussie Cattle Dog My dog Checkers rescued me about a year ago and in that time he and I have gone through a number of foods looking for one he actually enjoys eating. The shelter provided us with a mix they fed him which he seemed to be board with so we switched to Dog Chow because it was always fed my dogs in the past but he quickly became board with that so we switched to another brand and once again boredom set in.A couple of months ago he and I went to the pet store to see if we could find him something new. The brands I initially wanted to get him were far to expensive for my budget so we decided on a bag of Purina ONE True Instincts.In the time he and I have been together I have never seen him go at a food like he does the Purina ONE he used to just graze at his food but now when I put a scoop in his bowl he goes right at it. He still grazes but he always eats some when I fill his bowl which he did not do before.I have always trusted my dogs nutrition to Purina foods and my years of trust in providing a quality food to Checkers well continue on with Purina ONE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GreatStuff We feed this to our 14 year old Springer Spaniel and he loves it. The food has nice shapes and textures. I hope this keeps him interested in it and the flavors keep him wanting to eat it.Good job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1st food that both pups like that is also healthy & affordable Purina One was the first food that both dogs enjoy. The shedding has been less significant. with my pooch that has a double coat. The only negative comment I have is that my $3 off coupon didn't print.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dogs love Purina ONE and so do I I have been breeding, showing and field trialing English Springer spaniels since 1984. I have been feeding Purina ONE since 1990. On my last litter I was guilted into trying a so called "better" feed. I tried so many different brands and most they would not eat, or did not do well on from Exclusive , TOTW, Diamond, Innova, EVO and 4Health. 4health chicken and rice was the only one they would eat without any issues, until they changed the recipe and the dogs blew their coat.I started feeding ONE True Instinct on the recommendation of a Purina rep. So far so good! My boys love the taste and their coats are improving, stool size is small, eyes are clear and bright, breath is fresh and they have plenty of energy. What more could a dog owner/breeder ask for. I'll never switch from Purina products again. It's Purina ONE True Instinct for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Baby is acting half her age! Baby, my dog is 13 years old and in the past year or so has started to sleep a lot more and hide whenever people come over. I never thought that a simple diet change could make so much of a difference! Two weeks after we switched to the Purina food she was sleeping much less and seeking out playtime and attention like she did when she was younger. Then came the moment of truth, I had guests, 6 people came over for pizza and movies. Baby stayed out in the living room, she was actually dancing on her hind legs seeking attention and handouts again! I was in tears watching her be her old self after starting to worry if I was loosing her. She has started jumping on the couch again and wants to go for walks again. I love you Purina! Thank you!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality food my dogs enjoy Thank Goodness for coupons! I used the $3off Coupon to purchase the PURINA ONE® SMARTBLEND® TRUE INSTINCT FORMULA WITH REAL TURKEY & VENISON DRY DOG FOOD. I also got the wet food version that I received for free from Smiley360. This is a new flavor for my dogs to try and they seem to like it. They love the dry food mixed about with the wet food version because of the gravy it comes with adds more flavor. Sometimes I have to stop the younger one trying to eat the older one's food. I even notice that both my dog coats are shiny and more manageable for me to groom. The older dog is more playful and running around more too. Great quality.I received a free product for the purpose of my review. Opinions are 100% my own-

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 9yr and 2yr old dogs love this! I'm normally not a reviewer but I just had to share this story. I recently adopted a 2 yr old dog from a local shelter and was given purina one smart blend dry dog food as a take home. I also have a 9yr old dog who is a finicky eater and she was natural balance dry dog food due to food allergies. She has always been finicky for dog food. When it came to feeding time I was giving them both different foods and the original plan was to transition shelter dog to natural balance however the reverse happened my 9yr old dog transitioned to purina and have noticed that her coat is shiny and no more allergies. The shelter dog loves the food ! I'm so surprised that all these years I did not try purina due thinking that other brands were better and of course more expensive. I'm a true believer of this dog food and am so happy that my fur babies love this food. And my finicky eater is not finicky anymore...She actually is excited to eat now! Yay!!!Thank you Purina!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great! I did the 28 day challenge with my dog, with both the dryband wet food. My dig, Hendrix is a medium, average weight yorkie dog, age 6. He is overall healthy and active but he can not eat just any food, he gets allergic reactions and I have to get grain free food. I was buying a more expensive brand food previously. The Purina one smart blend was great!. My dog loved it, are it quickly and he did not get a bad reaction to it. This food didnt have a weird smell to it or texture. It looked good and it has a lot of good ingriendents. Also it saved money by doing the switch.I will continue to use this good with him *I received this free in exchange of an honest review

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Blue Heeler's appetite has returned. I was not sure about this food at first as I have always got the best dog food I could afford. But I was offered a small bag for free in exchange for my opinion which is 100% my own. It turns out that she loves it. She has not had a good appetite since having to get rid of our second dog with this food she is happy when it is time to eat she will not let you forget and will paw at her dish to make sure you remember. She has put her weight back on and her beautiful coat is returning she seems to be relaxing and getting back to her focused and playful self. I will definitely be purchasing more and love that it comes from a brand that I trust.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Dog Loves It...And It Shows! We had been using a high priced food, and decided to take the 28-Day Challenge. She already had a shiny coat and bright eyes, and she kept that just fine. If anything, it improved. The biggest change I saw was in her energy level. She wasn't sluggish, per se, but she was big on naps. After a few days on Purina One Smartblend, she was up and around more, and playtime lasted longer. We can hardly keep up!Her digestion is excellent, and she doesn't have any tummy trouble. And most important, she loves it. Before, she was casual about her food, but now she has her head in the bowl before I'm done pouring. She's happy, we're happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nutritious and Healthy...and my Dog could not be happier! My Dog Juneau, my beautiful Labradoodle, is madly in love with the product. It passed all tests! The taste, spell, size of package for the price and best of all... it's healthy for her! And I must say again....a great great bang for your buck! She has been eating One Smartblend True Instinct for about 6 months. It appears she is eager to eat (was not a good eater before this product) ..her coat is shiny and soft and she is very energized. The Vet says she is extremely healthy for a 2 yr old and surprisingly nothing was said about me changing her food as well. She was impressed with here teeth condition and remarked that she was at her perfect weight when she visited the Doc two weeks ago. Need I say more...from a very Happy Owner and Lovable Companion we say YES to Purina Smartblend and thank you Purina very very much!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Picky dogs loves Purina one I have two dogs, a Chihuahua and husky mix, they both are very picky dogs.i was having a problem finding good they both love. I was buying two different kinds just to make them happy. And then I tried Purina one true instincts turkey and venison. I was so happy they both loved it. Both dogs seemed so much happier and energetic. And not to mention it was healthier for them which made me happier to. My dogs are like my children and I want the best for them. Thank you Purina one for making my life easier and my dogs healthier. I received a free product for the purpose of my review. Opinions are 100% my own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy Dogs! I have been feeding my dogs Diamonds Natural Lamb and Rice for the last 3 years. In January we adopted a 3 year old Male German Shepherd. I then started noticing that he and my other dog Nevada who is 8 years old had diarrhea all the time. Never dawned on me before with Nevada since she has allergy issues and that is why I had Diamond Natural Lamb and Rice dog food. Talk about feeling terrible. I started seeing the adds with Purina One Lamb and Rice and decided why not see if I could get it for them. Living where I do it is hard to find certain dog foods but luckily I found it! Now everything is back to normal and they had no problem adjusting which is strange since Nevada and my little adopted older gal Erin are picky eaters. So thank you I have very happy dogs with happy tummy's again!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Tasty for my dog but not quality ingredients I received a coupon for a free bag of Purina One True Instinct Formula with Real Turkey & Venison Dog Food. I will say my dog likes the taste and tends to eat all his food, as he is a picky eater. However, I would not choose to feed this food to my dog on a regular basis. It contains ingredients I do not feel are good for my dog. It contains corn & wheat along with poultry by-product (which means feet and beaks along with who knows what else).I have not seen any change in my dogs coat or health so I don't believe this food makes a difference for the better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My Dog is way too picky... I was given a free sample for the 28 day challenge in exchange for my honest review. I have a 10 year old Springer who is very finicky and I believe set in his ways. As I blended the food he would eat around the Purina and simply refused to eat it. But he will do this with any food that is not what he's been eating for the past 10 year... so I simply do not think he will ever agree to eat a new food. I've read the other reviews and it's obvious to me that it's a very good food and is providing great benefits. I'm sorry that my picky eater would not partake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our babies are loving the new food!!! Thank you so much Purina One for allowing our dogs to take the 28 day challenge. Every change that we were supposed to notice has happened exactly like they said, starting on day one when I opened the new bag and they smelled the aroma and act like they can't seem to get enough. But the most important changes were how shiny their coats became and they have so much more energy now than before. We were wandering if you make treats also as we would be interested in trying those also....Thanks again Purina One for the chance to try this new food!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Caught my cat sneaking pieces of the dog's food... My dog LOVES the Purina One True Instinct food I bought for him. He is a "grazer"....we keep dry food out all of the time, but I noticed that he "grazed" just a bit more than usual!! He's a senior dog and sort of picky which is why I was so amazed at how he enjoyed the Purina One True Instinct. And...we have 3 cats. My youngest cat (she's 10 years old) was caught sneaking the softer pieces of the dog's food!!! When she hears me add food to his bowl, she comes around for a piece or two. This is my dog's food from now on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Picky No Longer I rescued my dog in January and feed her what her former owners did. She must not have liked the food very much as she would be very picky at meal time. About 3 months later, I brought home another rescue - a puppy- so I had to get him on puppy food. I took this opportunity to wean my older dog off the stuff she really didn't like and purchased Purina One Chicken for her and the Purina One Puppy for him.They both love this food! There hasn't been a meal where they both don't dive into their food!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog loves it! I received a sample pack to try for free on a smiley mission. I honestly have a picky dog who gets bored with dog food. I tried her on the Purina one and so far she hasn't stopped eating it like she does when she gets tired of it. She's been eating it since receiving it. She seems to like it very well and apparently loves the taste of it. She's a 5 year old pit/lab mix. She's very picky about what she eats. Im so hoping that she is able to keep eating this one because so far she's doing great on it.
