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 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 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 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 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 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 A very happy dog loves this product I was provided some free cans of this dog food by PurinaOne and Smiley360 in exchange for my honest opinion. I knew my dog would LOVE this dog food. She is never a picky eater, but she was interested before we even opened the can. Even my cat came to investigate and enjoyed a sampling. I have fed my pets Purina products for over 20 years. I know it makes a difference and I trust Purina to provide wholesome, nutritious food for my animals. This dog food was like a taste sensation with my dog. She wolfed it down and begged for more. The ingredients list not only provide the dietary requirements for her daily diet, but are good and honest quality. I definitely recommend this dog food for all stages of a dog's life. I do also recommend that your dog be fed dry food sometimes, or a dental chew to make sure they don't build up tartar from a solely soft diet.

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 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 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 My dogs new favorite snack food My dogs love this food. As soon as they hear my open the can they come running from all over the house. Our one dog is about five pounds over weight and we've tried everything to help him lose weight but nothing we tried has helped. We put him on this food about a month ago and he has lost two pounds. He only has three more to lose. I am so happy we finally found a food to help him lose weight. The only thing I do wish, is that they made this in dry food as well. Our three other dogs get the poops from wet food but we still give it to them once every week or so because they love it so much. I received a free product for the purpose of my review. Opinions are 100% my own.

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 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 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 My dogs love it! I have a dog that was very picky about his food. He got so skinny you could see his ribs. The vet said he was healthy, no reason for him to be so thin. I tried blue Buffalo and it made him sick. He wouldn't eat any of the food I tried. Then my friend told me her dad, a veterinarian, only feeds their dogs Purina one and Purina pro plan. I gave it a try and he loves it!! It has been 2 months and he is eating! I can see the difference. His ribs are not as defined, he is getting some meat on his bones! I'm beyond happy with this product. Thanks!!!!

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 Great Quality Excellent Choice I received a free product for the purpose of my review. Opinions are 100% my own. Maverick is a Siberian Husky, Border Collie, and German Shepherd Mix. He was absolutely blown away with this brand of food. The textures made it so easy for him to eat making it fun for him. He noticed the smell soon as I popped open the lid. I love the easy to pull lid feature because it saves me time and hassle to give my fur baby his food quickly. I really am impressed with this brand and can't wait to try other flavors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have tried all three of these different recipes. Our Lab/Gordon Setter Teddy actually will try his hardest to pick out the large chunky pieces. He loves this dog food. When we rescued him he was over 10 pounds to light according to our Vet. This dog food has put good weight on him, now he's filled with energy, healthy and has a beautiful black coat. It's very good food and he doesn't actually eat tons of it. We usually have to buy a big bag only once every 2 months. He loves it and we love him. Please remember to Rescue not Breed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purina ONE is #1 I am brand loyal to Purina products. I saw the 28day challenge on FB. I'M on a fixed income so was hesitant to change, but was excited to do the challenge for the $3 coupon. I completed the challenge, and although I have yet to get my coupon ,my dog absolutely loves the turkey and venison dry food. She can't get enough. I will purchase again even though I never got my coupon, but I'm just happy I'm feeding her something I know is healthy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I received a coupon to try this product for free and was not disappointed. I like the variety that I could get and the quality ingredients listed on your product. My dog enjoyed it so much that he licked the bowl clean and wanted more. In choosing a dog food I look for quality nutrition, how well my dog likes it and cost. I found all three qualities and your product. The fact that it was a free trial made it even better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My German Shepherd loves turkey and venison My 5 year old German Shepherd had a bad skin infection and itching problem. A breeder friend of ours suggested trying Purina One Turkey and Venison smart blend. In about a month her skin infection and itching decreased and in about 2 months her hair became softer and shiner, the infection and itching stopped. She also loves it when I moisten it with warm water. This is the first dry dog food that she really loves.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helped my Labrador's Coat Tried the Purina One Lamb and brown rice for my English Labrador. I wasn't sure how she would do, because she has been eating a higher priced brand for two years now. I was very surprised how well she adjusted to the switch. She loves the food and I have noticed that her coat has become much softer and her energy level is up. I was sceptical at first, but now recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jenna loved it Jenna is a 9 year old weimaraner and we took the 28 day challenge. We got an 8 pound bag of food for free via Smiley360 and she really seemed to enjoy the food. Being a weimaraner, it is difficult to determine whether there was an energy increase, as she is already quite energetic, even at 9. Overall, the food was something she really seemed to like.

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 Alden Loved It I wasn't sure what to expect with this food as I received it free. I had to switch Alden slowly, but when he got his first full bowl of Smartblend, he ate it all up. I swear he looked at me for some more! I am glad to switch to this dog food as it is more reasonably priced and easy to find in the grocery or pet store

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I will happily continue to feed this to my dogs I have a French Mastiff who was over 140lbs at 4 yrs old. She was very lazy and not interested much in playing with our 7 yr old pit mix. Since changing to Purina one, She has lost weight and now they both play together daily and I have noticed I'm sweeping up less and less dog hair lately.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than what I was feeding from the pet store! My rat terrier loves this food and thinks the bites of lamb in the lamb and rice formula are treats. She had become a little listless and lost a little weight on the Nutro Max but has now gained it back and is active and a happy girl again. Great dog food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality Food I received a #freesample for my fur baby to try from #Smiley360 and he loves it! When he hears the can opening, he goes nuts! I love that it contains antioxidants to support his immune system as well. We will definitely be purchasing more. Thanks, Purina!
