Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 430reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. October 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. October 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. June 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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!! June 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. April 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! June 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Not a morsel left in the bowls! Having 3 different dogs all different breeds it can be hard to find food they all love while meeting their needs. When I received a free coupon of Purina Ones True Instinct with salmon and tuna, I immediately went out and picked it up. I was excited to see something different than the usual chicken and beef. They used to nibble at their bowls, only eating when they got hungry enough. Now they are eager to eat and clean their bowls spotless. 3 bags later their much more energetic and the dry itchy skin is gone! My only complaint is how hard it is to find a bag of the salmon and tuna flavor bigger then 8lbs! June 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good nutrition means good stools: happy dogs and happy me! We are a dog rescue and receiving a bag of this food makes the dogs and me very happy! We love Purina ProPlan and Purina One products! They produce healthy coats, content dogs, and good stools. I consider this denser quality of Purina One products to be an excellent substitute for anyone on a budget to a top ranked food.When feeding rescue puppies, it is important I use a food without artificial colors and with quality ingredients. The puppy's health is often seen in the stool quality. If I could wave a magic wand, all our dogs would be fed Purina One and Purina Proplan foods that come into our care. April 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by love love love seriously this is just amazzzing! my dog takes forever to eat other dog brands. i bought this bag because i found a coupon for $3 off. so that was half price for a small bag n wowww my dog seriously loves this! i don't even have to add anything to it, he will sit down and enjoy this without any hesitation!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Purina One SmartBlend® True Instinct Grain-Free Formula Dry Dog Food, Turkey and Venison #Review #ONEdifference Verdict:So, why did I call the bits of jerky-style meats marshmallows before? It’s not for health reasons, but my dog turns out to be the dog that eats all the “marshmallows” out of the dog food first, leaving her “cereal” to eat last. That is how much she loves the new SmartBlend True Instinct formula from Purina One. The minute we pour the food, she starts nosing the food and you can hear her hunt for the chewy bits until she claims every last one of them. We purchased the Turkey and Venison blend and I even checked labels in the store. There is actual Venison and our dog loves this meat. From Duck to odd varieties like Swordfish, this dog is always eager for the wilder kind of meats. Our dog had surgery a little over a month ago and I thought I would have to worry about getting her to want to eat her normal dog food, but once I started mixing the Smartblend grain-free formula, that worry vaporized as did the food. She ate, gained back the 8 pounds she lost prior to having the surgery and it’s muscle mass she was able to regain. I was worried prior to surgery, as she lost muscle mass around the legs and neck area, to even going down a notch size on her collar. She was able to get that all back, plus we noticed she is full of energy to the point we are having a hard time keeping up with her. Our dog has us on a schedule now that she eats her dinner and then wants play, play, and more play. We actually get tired of playing tug-a-war with her and I now can’t even tug the plush away and run off like a bandit. I have to actually cheat and say, “let go or drop”, and then run with the plush but she always catches me! What you feed your pets really makes the difference and like reading labels for the food we eat ourselves, pick-up a bag of SmartBlend from Purina One and compare the True Instinct grain-free to the other brands. Fillers is not something this feed is full of and we saw the difference it made in our pet when she needed a good blend that not only she enjoyed eating, but aided in her recovery. Grab a bag and take the 28-Day Challenge today!I received the above product(s) free of charge from Purina One. I am not obligated to provide a positive or favorable review, just my honest opinion. My review is based on my experience with the product and/or brand, which may differ from yours. November 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality food our dog loves!!! I picked up this food right after I had rescued a 47# boxer from our local kill shelter in January of this year (2014). Buddy really loves this mix of turkey & venison! Within less than a month, Buddy was up to 60#!!! Now, you can't see his ribs, spine or hip bones, because they are now covered by lean muscles! Buddy is a happy boy who loves his family & will not be in a shelter again. :) <3 April 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lil Bit says, "YUM" Got to try this product thru smiley360. At first I got a coupon for 6 FREE cans of food. Lil Bit LOVED it. Then they told us we got the wrong coupon and sent a coupon for a FREE 8lb. bag of DRY food. AGAIN LIL BIT LOVED it. This is a great dog food product wet or dry to feed to your pet. October 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. October 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Quality that my Dachshund gobbles up. When I first adopted my dachshund Baxter he had been eating Dog Chow and I could tell he did not like it because he would just pick at it all day long. After we switched him to Purina One Smart Blend Turkey & Venison he gobbled it right up and tried to eat the other dogs portion.Baxter now loves meal time and I love feeding him food I know is good for him and that he loves. Thank you Purina One! September 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by All the dogs love it! I have a variety of dogs. A Blue Heeler, Red Heeler, Chocolate Lab, and a Black and Tan Dashaund. Every one of them loved the Purina One True Instinct with Turkey and Venison. September 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Dogs Love It All three of my dogs love Purina One much better than any other brand I have tried. I immediately saw a difference in their energy levels. My middle dog has actually started to play again. We will continue to choose Purina One as our number one dog food brand. July 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 EXCELLENT My hunting dogs needed to loose weight on the off season but I still wanted to keep up the quality of nutrition. Purina ONE delivered the results. I was able to cut back on the amount of food because the nutrition was there. Awesome sauce! I am happy and they are happy and weight happy. May 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dogs are THRIVING! I have struggled to find a food that all my dogs can eat. Purina One has provided the needed energy for my young dogs and has maintained weight for my older dogs. All dogs have shiny coats, appropriate energy and no more picky eaters...they all love Purina One. I alternate formulas and all do well on them. April 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dogs love it!! My second rescue dog Holly was quite over-weight when I adopted her. Thanks to Purina One she has lost 1/2 lb in about month on Weight management Turkey food. So far my other dog hasn't lost any weight but they both love the food. Prior to the turkey they ate the Beef or chicken Smart blend and loved both of those foods also. April 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by great pet food my dogs and cats have always been on purina one, and love the taste. There coats are amazing. We really like purina and have feed it for many, many years. April 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Charlie races to his food bowl!! My boykin spaniel Charlie who is 2 really enjoys the Purina One Smartblend Turkey and Venison recipe I used on the 28 day challenge. He knows to sit and wait for his command to eat, but he is anxious to get to the yummies at feedings. His energy level has been high, coat silky and shiny, and he seems content and full after feeding. He took to the new formula right away and had no problems or reactions - other than enjoying it very much!! Thanks Purina, it will be his permanent healthy meal plan. February 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by MY SENIOR DOG LOVES THE TASTE After the passing of my 13yr old Border Collie, I adopted a 9yr old Chow named Trixie. I had a small amount of Blue Buffalo left and fed it to her for a couple weeks. After seeing an ad on TV, I decided to try Purina Pro Plan Bright Mind. Trixie loves the taste. She seems to be more alert to her surroundings and more mentally active. I intend to stick with the Purina Pro Plan Bright Mind. It is a great product. March 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pups are loving it Just started trying the new Purina One SmartBlend so far my babies are loving it they have adapted well the the new food unlike others i have tried to switch them over to try this brand offers a few different bonuses the real chicken the fact it is highly digestible for my little one who is only 4lbs is a great bonus as he has digestive problems so i really liked this they offer different flavors as i can possible give them something different every so often change it up a bit no corn wheat or soy i am just loving all the perks and my dogs are loving all the flavor it has to offer September 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Yorkie-Poodle eats like a wolf I've been feeding this to my 4-year-old Yorkie-Poodle for 6 months now. Like my previous purebred toy poodle, he's a picky eater. He also has a dog food allergy to a lot of popular dog food brands, which causes his skin to flake and produce a very bad odor. I bought him the turkey and venison mix and he practically inhales it. He's a free-feeder but he acts as though I gave him people-food any time I fill his dish. His energy-levels are nowhere near slowing either, and the vet says he's in great condition. I recommend this dog food to anyone with a tiny, picky eater. September 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Our Brandi loves the chicken dry mix. Brandi loves the chicken, also we just tried the beef, loves this as well. Next time will be the Lamb and Rice. She also is partial to the wet foods and we divide the cans into 2 meals. We have an Australian Shepherd/Brittany Spaniel mix, 63 lbs. She was a rescue from our local shelter. She actually rescued us. She is tri-colored and has one blue eye and one brown. Very loving, loves to play and chase her toys. Her favorite treats are chicken jerky or beef. August 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by High quality, grain free affordable dog food my dogs love! I have tried multiple grain free dog foods. When I found True Instinct I was amazed how much my dogs love it. We have 2 dogs (7 yr. old Lab and 2 yr. old Bloodhound/Lab mix). The older dog no longer has weight issues, yet the "puppy" get enough for all her rambunctious energy. We been strictly feeding them this dog food for 4 months and I will not buy anything else ever again. I have highly recommended this food to family and friends and they can't believe how even the pickiest eaters clean their bowls. My 2yr. old actually started drooling when she see her bowl getting filled. October 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Picky Dog Loves His New Food I have a 9 lbs Chihuahua who is very picky about what we deed him. Sometimes, I have to put a piece of treat in his bowl of dry food just for him to eat. But, we loves the Purina ONE® SmartBlend® True Instinct Grain-Free Formula, Nutrient-Dense With Real Chicken & Sweet Potato! He now eats his food without a treat in the bowl. He also finishes every time :) Look at his smile in the photo! October 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy pup! I was lucky enough to get to experience the Purina One challenge thanks to Smiley360 and their free sample. Since giving it to my dog, she is so much more active and happy. She seems to sleep better and even doesn't seem to have gas when sleeping. During our walks, her stools are more firm and aren't as hard to clean up. I am completely satisfied with Purina One and will definitely continue to use it. I would definitely recommend it to everyone and I already have told friends and family about it. October 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dog loves it! My Vet recommended Purina One for my small dog when he was throwing up, after the hamburger and rice treatment. They sell Hill"s food but said they feed their dogs Purina One. He only likes small pieces of food so I had to get him the Beef Small Bites because that is the only flavor that is small bites. He really took to Purina One right away and has had no problem since eating Purina One. I am very happy with the results! August 20, 2015
