Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dachshund Tested .... Dachshund Approved I am usually very strict with what i will feed my dog. I tend to stick to a few brands that i know he loves and has done well on and since my 8 year old Dachshund is overweight i like to make sure he has quality ingredients to keep his weight managed. This food was absolutely amazing. He took to it right away which is really good. I started to integrate it into his current dog food to transition him over and he took to it well. I even caught him eating the Purina pieces out of his current food and leaving the old food in the dish. He really enjoys this food and I've noticed he hasn't had any issue with using the bathroom, he hasn't had any illness from it and he seems overall satisfied after eating. This dog food is a great product and one i believe my dog will be eating from here on out. I received my sample for free for the purposes of my honest review only my opinions are my own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jeagle (and feline) approved! When our current dog food ran low, we integrated the PurinaOne SmartBlend True Instinct into Sage's, who is a 4 year old female Jack Russell/Beagle mix, normal diet. She immediately preferred it over her normal food. She thoroughly enjoyed the meat bits the most and eats them first before finishing the rest. She rarely leaves any food in her dish now. Initially, our cats also showed great interest in the food, especially the meat bits, as well. While it took some time to see physical improvements, a few became apparent toward the end of the Challenge. Sage no longer has extreme "dog breath." Also, while she is a constant shedder, the shedding has slowed some. She once had a strong dog odor, but it also has dissipated quite a bit. Sage also doesn't seem to have as many digestive issues as with her prior food brand. This may very well be a product we stick with as long as she continues to enjoy it. We would recommend it to others. We received this product for free via Smiley360 and PurinaOne 28-day Challenge in return for a true, honest review .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Food envy no more! I have what you would call a food envy dog. I put the same exact food (brand, flavor) in his dish as I do the other dogs. The only difference is the size, he gets a smaller size because he's a chihuahua and the other 2 are larger breeds. He was always going in their dishes, and I never understood why until the vet said he's food envy. Kind of like when you go out, and after you order you see them bring something out to the table next to you, then you wish you had ordered that. Well, I had received a coupon free from Smiley360, for an 8lbs bag of this dog food, up to a certain price for free. So I went and picked my Bentley out a new food try, there's even a bonus...I found this in small bites! Since I've been feeding him this new food, there doesn't seem to be anymore food envy, he finally stays in his own dish! I've also noticed that his fur is a lot softer than before and he's been significantly more playful as well! I believe we may have finally found the perfect food for Bentley!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My pup gives it five paws ! As many other pet parents I want the best for my pup and food and diet is a huge decision for me because I want to give him the best. Purinaone wasn't my first choice but after doing some research and giving it a shot with the 28 day challenge I know I found the one. My pup is a german shepherd and he needs food that'll not only help keep his weight but also fill him up and give him energy and nutrients. The first thing I started to notice that actually took me by surprise was that his coat was shiney and soft ! I was so impressed. He started to stop asking for more food cause it would fill him up well and the portion was all he needed he quickly started to develop more energy and play time was more fun and he'd focus more on training. I really am glad I gave this a shot ! Do the research and compare dog food you will be shocked how great this is ! I received a free product for the purpose of my review. Opinions are 100% my own and I wouldn't recommend something if me myself didn't truly love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected. I am always reading labels and comparing foods before trying one with my boys. They are a little bit picky and actually get tired of the same foods. Unlike any other dogs I have had my current two will only eat one type for about a month or two before they decide they want something new. We have found many ways to change up the food without upsetting their digestive system but it can be bothersome to keep having to go read labels. It's also costly to buy something for them to not eat it. When I got the chance to try Purina One for free I jumped on it. The boys have been very pleased with the Purina One True Instincts. They get excited for their food and immediately chow down. We haven't seen any of their tale tell signs of not wanting it any more so maybe or hopefully we have found something they will stick with for once. I love that that get excited and don't hesitate to eat. That is my sign, among a few on the other end, that this is a good food for my boys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Nugget is a Fan of These Nuggets I received a free sample of Purina One True Instinct Grain Free dog food, and a coupon for a free bag for the 28 Day Challenge. I'm normally wary of making my dog try new foods, as she has a very sensitive stomach, but I'm a little less worried about that with a food that is labeled "grain free." So the first little sample pack I treated like, well, treats. I fed her a little handful at a time while waiting on my coupon to arrive, and she was such a fan. She was really excited about crunching on these yummies.We'd accidentally gotten a coupon for some of the free True Instinct wet canned food, as well, and she fell in love with that while we waited. I mixed some in with her Taste of the Wild blend I put together, then once my "real" coupon arrived, I blended some of the crunchy nuggets with the Wild Boar and Salmon. She's such a fan these days, and it seems to not be taking a toll on her tummy. So we'll be sticking with this food for a good while.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pup likes it I have a 6-year-old Bichon with no allergies but is a semi-picky eater. He has really enjoyed the Purina ONE SmartBlend True Instinct with Real Turkey & Venison Adult Premium Dog Food. I was surprised to see large chunks of meat along with smaller pieces of dry food. I can vouch for "Day 1+ Taste": my dog can't seem to get enough of it and with a little water added, he barely comes up for air. I have not seen an increase in energy or improved coat, but he loves the food and that's enough of a selling point for me. It seems to be easily digestible. I appreciate that I received a free product for the purpose of my review, but also that my pup had a chance to try a different brand because he was stuck with the same type for the past year or so. Opinions are 100% my own.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great! We were definitely concerned trying the product at first. There are definitely both negative and positive reviews online. So we started to slow transition into the new food. Our dogs loved it. Within one week we already notice softer fur with the bigger shine. By week two our dog had more energy and was playing more with our kids. Bye week 4 our dog wasn't begging as much and love his feeding time and loves his food. Our dog never likes his food he came from a home that fed him human food so we always have fun with feeding him not now as he loves feeding dinner time and always is ready to eat. Now for the value on the dollar this is definitely a good price product. We probably will finish and continue to buy this this is a better deal than what we used to get and the results are much the same. Of course we got to try this product for free for honest review and now we're probably a full-on customer so I do urge anyone to at least give us a trial because not only will you save money but your dog will have a good result from it as well

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clyde tested. Clyde approved. Mommy tested. Mommy approved. A dog food that Clyde and I can get on board with and I'm THRILLED! I received enough food for free from Purina One and Smiley360 to do a 28 day challenge. The food I was feeding Clyde was of high quality and even more expensive than the Purine One so I really was not expecting much of a difference, if any at all. BOY WAS I WRONG. When the free food ran out, we actually purchased the Purina One and have switched. Clyde loves this food. On top of that, his coat is has so much more shine to it and his energy level is so much better. His over all appearance is healthier. This was just a total win for our family. Thank you Purina One and Smiley360 for opening our eyes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Joey LOVES the grain-free formula My mini dachshund has never been happier with this new food we got. After he finished his free sample from #Smiley360, I used the coupon for the free bag and got the true instinct grain-free formula from Purina One. Every morning he wakes me up and runs straight to the kitchen waiting for me to feed him. I have never seen this behavior from him before, he truly loves this new food. I've noticed a lot more energy from him, rather than have to drag him out the door for his walk, where he used to only walk to the mail box, he actually runs out the door and can walk longer distances. He has always been a normal healthy weight, so size wasn't the matter, but he never had the energy to want to walk long distances. His teeth are looking health, with what little he has left =] and his coat and skin are amazing. His fur is super soft and his skin isn't rough. I absolutely love this food and so does he! I have officially switched from the multiple brands I was using over to Purina grain-free. Thank you so much!! #ONEdifference I received a free product for the purpose of my review. Opinions are 100% my own

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Has my dog acting like a puppy again My 2 dogs, an American Bulldog and a Shih Tzu, were no longer eating their Iams dog food. They would pick at it and walk away or I would have to add other items to it to get them to eat. After receiving a coupon for a free bag of the Purina One food of my choice, I decided now might be a good time to switch. Because of my dogs many allergies, I chose the Purina One True Instinct Grain Free dry food and I could not be happier. The dogs now eat well and as the weeks have passed, they both seem to have more energy and my 8 year old Bulldog is acting like a puppy again. I will be sticking with Purina One.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dogs loved the taste. I have three dogs, a Pomeranian, a Papillion, and a papi-pom. They all have different flavors preferences, so it can be tricky getting only food that they all enjoy. My dogs loved the taste of the Purina One True Instinct Grain Free Formula. They were on me before I even opened the bag. They loved the food and seemed to eat more of it. I was impressed with the ingredients. The food looked natural and was a nice shape. It was easy for them chew, which is important for the dental aspect. Right now, we're in the end of fall, beginning of winter. I noticed a bit more shine in their coat, but they haven't had the dry skin issues they seem to get spring and fall. I received this item for free from Smiley360 to test and review. All material is my own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Two shelties and one cocker give their paws up! I know this is for a 28 day challenge, but the bag lasted a bit over a week. But three kids were being fed off the bag. Have no fear, though, they ate it so well (and one is SUPER picky with what food she'll eat) I was encouraged by their reactions to purchase more and continue feeding it to them. All three of their coats have improved and two of the three have shown markedly more energy. (One is all about being a couch potato and belly rubs and snuggling.)The price is reasonable and the ingredient list doesn't scare me off, as some dog foods do. With three dogs that are happy, healthy and get good vet reports, I am not in a position to spring for chef inspired, $15.oo a pound food. So if you love your pet and you want to do right by them but also don't tote them around with their own designer garb, in other words just a "regular joe", like me, give it a shot and 28 days. I'm guessing you'll have good results, just like me!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Grain free that my dog loves My dog, Bentley, had an allergy to grain so can only eat the grain free foods. I was excited when I received a free sample of the Purina One True Instinct Grain Free Formula from Smiley360 to review. I had been looking around for a more affordable grain free option and I thought this could possibly be an option. My dog seemed to like the taste alright as he always finished his bowl. I didn't notice any sensitivity issues to it the first few days which was good because some of the other grain free foods he has tried don't sit well with him. Over the next 30 days I looked for signs of health improvement in him ( thicker shinier coat, more energy) but I honestly think he stayed just about the same. So I would say the 28 day challenge that Purina advertises with this food didn't really do anything for him. But it is overall a more affordable grain free option and I will keep it in mind when I am buying his food next time around.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beagle Approved My beagle loves the food. This is the first time we have tried it and she loves it. The food is nice bite sized portions and she takes her time eating it. That is a good thing. She seems to have more energy and softer fur. I received a free product for the purpose of my review. Opinions are 100% my own. Thank you to both Purina 1 for the 28 day challenge and t0 smiley 360 for the opportunity for my dog to try something new. We will be staying one the food longer to see if she keeps improving.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent high grade food for all breeds! I initially tried this for my German Shepherd, having read other reviews and looking for a high quality food that wont break my budget. Well, I was amazed at the results. She is a long haired shepherd and her coat alone was shinier than ever, additionally, breakfast and dinner time was met with great enthusiasm compared to other foods we tried, where after a week she lost interest in it. Lastly, we decided to also change our two other dogs ( a Bichon and a Shih Tzu) diet to the Purina True Instinct , and boy are we glad we did. No more having to buy separate foods for everyone!! And they all love it. I have recommended this food to my other dog loving friends. Good Job Purina!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dog food at a great price Bear ,is a 185 lb Saint Bernard with IBS. I recently started feeding him grain free and within 24 hours we were both happy. Bear for the first time in a very long time is having normal bowel movements. This is great for me because its a alot easier to clean up after him and he love eating again, as though he ever didn't, LOL I'm also impressed with the price , I have looked around and can't believe how expensive those other brands are. Having a very large dog , it can be frustrating when the vet tells you he should be eating a specific brand and you can't afford it so they look at you like a bad owner. Not anymore this is our new brand that is healthy for Bear and healthy for my wallet too.Thanks Purina for realizing not everyone can spend a fortune feeding their dog good food.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My dog wouldn't eat it. My dog is a shih-tzu yorkie mix and she is 6 years old. She is picky about what she eats. She seems to only eat natural and healthy food and treats. She will not even eat peanut butter, which I'm allergic to. We received a free coupon for a 8 lb. bag of Purina One True Instinct Grain Free Chicken & Sweet Potato Dog Food and we got it from the store and she wouldn't touch it. She must be used to her current food and she must not want to change foods or she just doesn't like the taste. I did look at the ingredients and I'm not that happy there's poultry by-product meal in this product. I normally try to stay away from that in any of my dog's food or treats. I will give this dog food to a friend or an animal shelter so it doesn't get wasted. Thanks for allowing me to try this product on my dog even though she did not like it. Note: I received a free product for the purpose of my review. Opinions are 100% my own.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My picky pup seems to like it My 10 year old Shih Tzu is extremely picky. He's not a fan of dry dog food but if I add a little (usually 1/6th of a can) of wet Purina One with his hidden arthritis pill on top of the dry, he scarfs it all down. There are still times when he won't eat it but he is showing signs of being happier. He is playing with his toys more and running around again. I used to have problems with his white paws and muzzle turning red from the dyes in his food. I don't have that problem anymore with these products. I received a free sample of both foods in return for an honest opinion. This is 100% my opinion. My dog thanks you Purina and Smiley!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LAB Tested I have a lab that is high energy already but was looking for a food that was good for him without all the fillers. He had a dull coat and some stinky breath and his current food was making him gassy. I was given the opportunity to try the Purina for free and went for it. I didn't notice a change in energy level because my dog is high energy to begin with, but I did notice a change in his coat. It is super shiny and his breath doesn't stink anymore. Although I think the best part is this food doesn't make his gassy anymore. I received a free product for the purpose of my review. Opinions are 100% my own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality food my dogs LOVE I received a free product for the purpose of my review. Opinions are 100% my own. I have an English Bulldog and a Golden Retriever. Both my dogs fell in love with this dog food! They eat it right up and truly seem to enjoy the flavor. My Golden is 11 years old and has skin issues. Since starting Purina One True Instinct he has started acting like a puppy again. His skin issues are still present but he does not seem to shed as bad as before. Both my dogs have had no trouble digesting the food at all. I would recommend to anyone looking for a new dog food!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, well-balanced dogfood. Decided to to take up Purina on its Purina ONE® SmartBlend® Dry Dog Food 28 day challenge. I followed the guidelines to transition my dog to a new food and was very pleased with the results. My dog seems to love this new food and eats it with a greater gusto than he did his previous food. It looks and smells more attractive than the food he was eating previously. Secondly, I noticed that he had less frequent, more solid stools than on his other food. He also has less gas, which is a blessing. I also noticed that he seemed to be a bit more energetic/less sluggish than previously and has a shinier coat. Have already recommended this food to others and will continue to do so. Disclaimer: Received a sample and coupon for this dog food thru Smiley360.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Taste! (My doggy told me so!) This is a photo of one content doggy after a bowl of her new favorite meal: Purina ONE® SmartBlend® Dry Dog Food! Notice her shiny coat and cute ears? She usually hangs around a while after eating, just to make sure she ate every last drop! Thanks for the free sample, Smiley 360! We will be switching to this brand because of the great taste, as evidenced by our doggy's voracious appetite!

She absolutely loved this food, she likes the meat pieces in the food as well! she finishes all the food and seems to be satisfied I will be buying more in the future for sure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog loves it! I have really loved using this Purina One SmartBlend dog food. My dog is very picky about his food. I have to mix wet food with any dry food he eats in order for him to eat it, and even then sometimes he won't! This is literally the first food ever that he has eaten all alone!!! I was so happy. I also love the health benefits of the food along with the healthy and natural ingredients. The food itself also looks unlike any other. It has normal pieces of dry food and also actual little pieces of chicken! (If you get the chicken flavor) The bag size it great and isn't too pricey either. I have a small dog and it lasts me at least a month. I am extremely impressed with this food and will definitely be switching my dog permanently over to it! I have already recommended this to family and friends and will continue to. I received this free but this is my honest and unbiased review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love true instinct! Ever since my dog was small we've had a hard time getting her to eat dog food. She's actually eaten cat food nearly her entire life. We had a cat at the time we got her she would steal the cats food. We've tried several top brand foods she turns her nose up to everything. That is until we introduced her to Purina one true instinct! We did the 28 day challenge which it's suggested to slowly incorporate the new food in with their food of choice until they're eating 100% of the new food only.i added a handful in the first day, everything went great. I attempted to pour it the next day and accidentally filled it with a full portion. As I attempted to take some out she jumped at the bowl and began choking down!!much to my surprise there was no need to slowly introduce it. She loved it off bat. I've noticed a HUGE difference in her energy level , her coat is beautiful eyes are clear. I absolutely notice a huge change in my baby!! I 100% recommend Purina one!! i received this product free for the purpose of my review , my opinion is 100% of my own. Definitly give it a try!! I promise you will see results!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Food! I switched my pit-bull mix to the Purina ONE food after struggling with finding a food that works well for her sensitive digestive system. It was so nice that after switching her to this food we could stop cleaning up the diarrhea. Her coat also seemed to improve over the time she was on this food with it becoming fuller and softer. She loves the flavor and the smaller size of the food help to keep her from eating it to fast. The best part is that as a conscious pet owner who is concerned with feeding my pet good quality food, I can feel comfortable knowing that she is getting good food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grain-Free Formula is the way to go for my dogs Thanks to Purina One and Smiley360 my 3 dogs got to try the Purina One Grain-Free Formula with Real Chicken and Sweet Potato for free!! I was more excited about trying the new food than Rusty, Raegan and Elway was because they will eat anything! All 3 dogs loved the taste of the food and cleaned their bowls happily! I wanted to try the grain-free formula mostly because one of our dogs, Rusty, has digestive problems and horrible breath!! Rusty has terrible gas and within about a week, we noticed his tummy must be be improving because he wasn't stinking up the whole room! Now on his breath, I think it has gotten a little better but it is not gone yet! After the 28 day challenge, I was looking for a miracle with his breath but it didn't happen in the 28 days but we are still hoping it will just keep getting better and better as he keeps eating his new food!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Purina One Smartblend We received a coupon for a free bag of Purina One to sample. Upon first getting it all my dogs were interested and ate some. By the second week , I noticed it wasn't going as fast as our usual zero grain dog food and the doggies coats' weren't looking as shiny. I wished I had gotten the zero grain version with my coupon as opposed to the orginal version of Purina One. It looks like my doggies are used to and prefer zero grain formulas. I don't think Purina One Smartblend will be a part of our doggies' diets. The only one of the dogs that liked it consistently throughout the challege with the free sample was my little chi mix.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My boys approve!!! I have two large breed dogs that have different tummy issues, so that can be very difficult when finding the right food. I found that both of my dogs immediately took to the food, eating it with no hesitation. Good sign! Now....we wait! A little tummy grumbling, no gas, no loose stool from either dog! WOW!! Round two of feeding....SAME OUTCOME!! I was so excited that my boys could both be on the same diet and not have distress! This will save me in time, money, and emotionally! Not to mention, they are clearly getting a high quality food that they love and that is good for them. By the end of the 28 day challenge, they were hooked and I am as well! We have found our dog food for life! I received a free product from Smiley360 for the purpose of my review. Opinions are 100% my own.
