Rated 5 out of 5 by Absoulety best dog food!! I tried getting my boston terrier to eat all kinds of dry food i spent plenty of money on tons of brands and he wouldn't eat any. I requested a free sample of this brand gave it to him and to my surprise he ate a whole bowl. for a picky dog who is obsessed with bologna I'm shocked he gave it up for the dry food . I want to thank you purina for making this brand because its awesome!! and I'm soo happy my pup stopped eating human food. Highly recommend this product August 10, 2013

Rated 1 out of 5 by My dogs pick it out of dish and leave on the floor Have been using Purina One for years and decided to try the new PURINA ONE SMARTBLEND TRUE INSTINCT. I mixed it with regular Purina One to gradually switch them over but they pick the True Instinct pieces out and put on the floor or leave it in the dish. I have 2 dogs and they both refuse to eat True Instinct. I even tried mixing it with a little canned Purina One to entice them and they ate it that way but one of them threw it all back up within 20 mins. I put them back on their regular Purina One and they ate all of it and no problems. Now no more dog food all over the floor. I now have large bag of dog food that I can't use. August 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Can't get enough! Both of my dogs just can't get enough of this they come running when I fill their bowls now! August 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by a winner A great product and is always a favorite! Our dog has always been finicky and it concerned us as to how this could affect his health. This product has been a wonderful solution and we love the ingredients! Thank you... August 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dogs love it I received a sample of the dog food in the mail.i have went to three stores,pet smart,dog food store,Walmart .cant find it .they have the others,but not the true instinct.can you help me find a store that sells this item.Thank you August 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by love it! While I know other dog foods like blue buffalo are suppose to be healthier for your dog....its frickin EXPENSIVE! Purina one is one of the few foods that I have found (dry food) that my picky little old pug will eat without turning his nose up at it. Love this product. Tried it on a whim to see if he would finally eat it and not be so picky and he loved it. September 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by We use nothing else! Our large (120 lb.) lab and our 25 lb. beagles love this food. Our only regret us that we can only find it at Target. November 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by The only food my greyhounds love! Purina ONE is the only food I give my rescued greyhounds, both wet and dry varieties. They love it and they are healthy and happy. They also love Purina treats, especially the Baked Delight variety! July 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by It's great! Purina not only delivers great nutrition for my dog but also for the dogs I help with at the local shelter. They are a good company with only the best intentions for our furbabies! July 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by being discontinued? This would be a huge mistake to discontinue this particular blend. My dog thrives on the True Instinct and never hesitates when eating. My Stop & Shop had a 15lb bag for $6 off because it was being discontinued. Walmart's listing says the same thing. You cannot tell me that this is not selling- it rarely lasts long on the shelf. I am going to have to hoard some and do not look forward to trying out other dog foods of this quality [good luck] that my dog might like. May 13, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Instint All of my four rescues eat it! They are sll healthy and active. October 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Spot on The perfect food for my pet, it has a nice scent and the kibble is nice sized. July 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Winner w/my dogs! I have two dogs, one older male who is quite picky about his food. Over the years, we have tried everything, including adding canned food and gravies to his dry food to make it more appealing. That was until we started him on Purina One - he loved the meaty bits of food mixed in with his dry! But inevitably, after about 6 months, he started hesitating before eating, hoping for something better. We changed slightly to the True Instinct and he still charges towards his food bowl to eat! He is also allergic to some meats, so we avoid several such as chicken, but the venison and turkey have garnered no allergic reaction and he is actually more active then ever! Oh, our female? She'll inhale almost anything, so no review from her. February 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Loves the taste I have tried a few different dog foods over the years, but my seven year old chihuahua seems to love this dog food! He is at his bowl longer eating in the morning than ever his whole adult life. I feel confident with a Purina product that he is getting the nutrition he needs! September 13, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Taste I srarted purina one smartblend on my inside dog about a months ago and I noticed that he would not eat the triangle shape food, so I gave my other two bigger outside dogs the same food and they too, did not eat the triangles. I thought it was kind of strange, so I bought a new bag and all three dogs refused to eat the triangles. I gave my son the two bags of food for his dog and that dog also would eat the two other shapes, but left the triangles behind. Don't know the reason why four different breed dogs would not eat the triangle parts, but I won't be buying this dog food in the future. June 29, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Just doesn't match up Not enough meat protein. Even though a specific meat is the #1 ingredient, 80% of that is water; the rest of the ingredients just don't match up with high quality dog food. My 2 large dogs just don't like it. June 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent I have 3 very different dogs.. they each have different likes and dislikes.. the only thing I can honestly say is that all 3 of them love Purina One (Lamb). My only problem with this food is that they're more expensive than others. I'm retired/disabled so I have to watch every penny. I love my dogs so once a month I splurge and got them ONE.. they love me enough to last almost all month. August 14, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by ok quality, but needs better taste My dog (Akita 2 yr old Kiko doesn't hate it, and also doesn't look forward to it anf gulping it down, but doesn't seem to hate it. I still wish it had better ingrdeants, such as Nutro, which is not affordable to me. It would be nice if a company like Purina, made a better than grocery store item, but a lot less expensive than say Nutro and those other types. August 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Country Poodles Run On True Instinct We have two cream-colored Standard Poodles: Harlow and Cooper. You won't find any ribbons or fancy haircuts on these guys. We live in the country and both dogs are extremely strong, fit and athletic. They are also extremely finicky eaters. True Instinct appeals to our big poodles in a way that no other dog food ever has, wet or dry. The first time I brought True Instinct into the house, both dogs went right to the bag and started nosing it. When I put the food down for them, they ate with gusto. The 'True Instinct' name for this new combination of turkey and venison dog food prompted me to try it, because after all -- dogs are predators. Those rich, gamey morsels seem to satisfy our two predators, body and soul. October 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Dog LOVES This Food! We have been feeding our Cardigan Welsh Corgi Purina One Beyond Lamb and Rice for awhile but when we went to purchase more over the weekend the store no longer had it (not sure if it's still available or not). So, I picked up a bag of the Purina One Smart Blend True Instinct and I am amazed at how much our dog loves this food. She literally runs to the food container then runs to her dish and gobbles it up! She absolutely cracks me up. Loves, loves this food! July 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by OUR DOGS LOVE We have a pit/lab mix that has food allergies and needed to put weight on. We were walking through giant eagle one day and found this dog food. So we decided to try it. We also have a pit/boxer mix, who is also a rescue dog and needed to put weight on. We fed this food to our dogs at the same time and they absolutely LOVED IT. We were so excited because our pit/lab mix actually enjoys eating this food, he's picky and won't eat if he doesn't like it. Also, both dogs put on the weight they needed and they look great. This food has also helped with their coats, they are a lot softer now. I recommend this food to everyone! April 18, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Once again you've changed product with no warning! Have been using your product for MANY years. Both product and packaging have changed again. ONE BEYOND (yellow packaging) no longer exists. Purchased two packages of ONE SMART BLEND (red packaging), chicken & rice formula and lamb & rice formula. DOG WILL NOT EAT!! I'm stuck with two bags of dog food. Bye! Bye! Purina. You have lost a loyal customer!!**WOULD APPRECIATE A RESPONSE FROM YOU! July 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Picky eaters love this food I love that the fist ingredient is some meat. My dog stopped eating to the point she became anorexic. I tried every thing to get her to eat. The vet couldn't find a reason for her weight lose, She wouldn't eat any dog food I tried I even tried the really expensive brands and neither dog could tolerate Chicken. Then I came across this at the store and decided to try it. She LOVES it. In the morning its the dry and the evening its the can food. Both dogs(who are picky eaters) start licking their lips and drooling while I'm putting it in their bowl. They gobble it up in minutes. The dog that was anorexic is now putting her weight back on and can't wait to eat. BEST OF ALL this food isn't expensive! September 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Purina is the only one My dog Sadie love it. It took me several Purina brand to get the one she will eat it all. She loves it and I get lots of complements on how shiny her coat is. She is a very active dog and I know she is getting the right nutrients she needs. August 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by If you Love your Dog, This is a MUST HAVE!!! I rcvd this product in the mail today as a sample. I must say that when I opened the bag and looked at the product inside, I got excited! It smelled good enough to eat. My Rotty LOVED it. He has been eating pedigree for the last 3 yrs and he will generally pick at his bowl for about an hour before he gets hungry and eats. When I put that sample bag in his bowl.............he destroyed it.I love the ingredients. Everything that a dog should have. From the Crunchy kibble to the chunks of moist meats....its a true home run. I will be switching over first thing in the morning..........Problem is I am not sure where to buy this yet. Looked online and cannot find a store that carries it yet!!! August 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by The first food that all my dogs like I love this dog food! It has REAL chunks of meat. All of my dogs love it! I also found out that after just two weeks that my dogs no longer had soft stools or diarrhea and there was less to pick up. Thank you Purina! August 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by "ABSOLUTE BEST" AFTER TRYING MANY! After reading all the controversy in selecting just the right dog food for our 120 lb. Old English Sheepdog and trying numerous ones that were highly recommended, TRUE INSTINCT has by far been the most desirable & the one that has met our goal. Our dog, Hadley, loves it and NEVER hesitates when offering it to him. Our Vet recommended that we find one that agreed with our dog's digestive system & stick with it. His problem he felt was with my trying mostly the expensive brands & then finding that Hadley would quit eating it. We have been feeding the Turkey & Venison True Instinct for a few months now & he loves it!!! March 8, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by My dog is OBSESSED with this food! I have tried tons of foods for my little Chihuahua mix ( he's really sensitive w/ allergies) - all of them being really expensive, holistic, grain free, limited ingredient etc. He never liked any of them - he's extremely finicky!! Money is super tight for me right now so I got him a bag of this and O.M.G!!! he was so excited, I could barely open the bag LOL! When I fed it to him # gradually of course & mixed w/ some of his other food) he practically inhaled it!! To be honest it may not be an all organic, super pricey, type of pet food but he'll eat it no problem compared to other foods were he starved himself. This is an awesome food for a finicky dog!! December 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for Diabetic Dog My husband & I adopted Pebbles about 6 months ago from our local shelter. She is a 5 year old redbone coonhound/ brittany spaniel mix. She is diabetic & blind as well. When we first adopted her she was VERY under weight at 35 pounds. We first used Purina One Chicken & Rice which she did love too but after a while I noticed she stopped gaining weight. So I compared it to the True Instincts which has even more protein & that's even better yet for her. Not only does she LOVE this dog food but now she's at a healthy weight of 50 pounds, her insulin levels are stable & she has so much more playful energy in her March 6, 2014
