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 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 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 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 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 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 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
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 Siberian Husky loves this food! We have an Australian Shepherd and a Siberian Husky. The Husky is notoriously picky eater but is thriving on the Purina True Instinct food. He will eat this food over anything else that is offered. Both dogs are doing very well with shiny coats and are very energetic and happy pups! Our veterinarian feeds Purina One to his family dogs. Thank you! July 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by High quality food Noah enjoys. After eating True Instinct for 1 month, Noah's hair is thicker and eyes brighter. Noah also likes the taste of the product. We are definitely staying with True Instinct Turkey and Venison. Thank you Purina for such a healthy dog food! July 5, 2015
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 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 Awesome product I have 2 mniature poodle mixes that were adopted from the city animal control pound - Diva (5 years old) and Rockstar (2 years old). I was always on the lookout for a new dog food because Diva would have tummy troubles and Rockstar showed absolutely no enthusiasim for food. Once I introduced Purina One SmartBlend - True Instince - that changed. Feeding time is now filled with jumping, excited dogs who eat in record time. Thanks Purina! Now if only I could get some coupons...... August 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Keeps Healthy Weight and Coat I have always used the regular Purina ONE varieties, but when I started using the True Instinct, my American Eskimo (11 y.o.) started eating better and putting on weight, something she has trouble doing now that she's older. Our two Bassett/Lab crosses have no problems keeping weight on, but they do have beautiful shiny, soft coats. The only issue we have is they like the food so much we have to mix it with plainer varieties for the fatties or they would gobble it all in minutes (we free-feed to help the older gal).

Rated 5 out of 5 by I was truly amazed ... We received a sample in the mail. The next day I put it in my finicky Pomeranian's food bowl and COULD NOT BELIEVE what then happened: for the first time in her life she ate her entire bowl of food start to finish! I had to look at the bag again because I thought I had just given her a bowl full of treats!! But no, it was definitely dog food! So she LOVES it and it's good for her and this is what I'll buy her from now on. Thanks, Purina! :) August 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Our dogs devour this food! Our two Cavaliers love this food. One of our dog's has an off-bite, and the small pieces and chewy meat morsels allow her to more easily eat the food than other foods we've tried. She's also been a finicky eater but is excited for meals now. Stools are small and firm too, so not a lot of food is going to 'waste.' Helps with cleanup! Thus, I give it 5 stars due to the dogs loving it and their high system utilization. Coats are silky and body mass index is appropriate for the breed, on this food too. December 31, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great food for dogs! I have been feeding my dogs purina one for a long time. Their coats are shiny and they are healthy. Our dogs are rescues. They go from being underweight and undernourished to healthy "Purina One" dogs!! We would not feed them anything different. Thank you for being such a great product with great nutritional value for our family pets. July 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by True Instincts- Purina One I am on disability so money is tight. My small dog is very finicky and won't eat much dry food. I got a sample of this product with a $3.00 off coupon and he can't get enough of it. It is easy for him to eat and to him it is like a treat instead of food. Yoda, my small 8 pound dog loves it and the small bag will last him for a few weeks if not a month. Thank you and I will be watching for more coupons so I can leave him on this food. Good going Purina. Thank you!! September 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy Huskies Our three Siberian Huskies like variety so I'm always changing food. They refuse to eat a lot of the expensive, holistic foods. I saw this and decided to buy a small bag. They loved it!!! They never leave one kibble, unlike other foods. Mmmm Mmmm Good! :-) August 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Taste that my boys enjoyed I have 3 dogs of different breeds, chihuahua, pomeranian, and a mixed breed and all three enjoyed the product! June 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Purina One smart blends small bites My little min schnauzer mix loves this food. Thank you Purina for making an affordable good 4-them food. November 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome product I used to buy the expensive food at $35 a bag for a 16lb bag and my dogs didn't care for it (4Health). I bought this product and the dogs love it. The pieces of chicken, bison, and lamb are a wonderful addition to the food. The dogs can't wait to eat their food now. October 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by All 4 of my dogs love it. I have 4 dogs and pleasing them with their favorite can be tough. With "True Instinct" the know when feeding time comes and they can't wait to eat it. They obviously want more but they'll just have to wait til next meal...... April 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dogs go GaGa! My three boys recognize the bag, and go gaga over the True Instinct. I wish it were easier to find in my rural area. It has been difficult finding consistently. February 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by picky pups We have 4 dogs -but we have two picky eaters; one is a small, little mix breed and one is a white pitt mix with allergies. They both immediately responded to this True Instinct with turkey & venison the first day. The small dog has never eaten dry dog food and now we can't keep her out of the Pitt's bowl. So glad to have found this. August 22, 2013
