    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good food I'v been feeding Instinct to my dogs for a number of months, In general they like the food and the nugget size is great as it can be fed to both small and large dogs. I find it to be a quality product, I like the use of the raw freeze dried ingredients but I have one complaint. The Chicken and the Beef are the only proteins I can feed my dogs as the other options have Canola oil in the ingredients. Canola oil is a GMO product, full of pesticides in general and highly processed. If it weren't gor that one ingredient the foods would be perfect. The company should seriously consider replacing that oil with a healthier option.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Whippets LOVE Instinct! I have been feeding Instinct to my whippets for over 6 years! They love the kibble and really like the Raw Boost nuggets. I like the fact that I can rotate flavors and allow them to try various flavors without having to worry about issues that may occur when changing foods!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all-around! I've been feeding this to my dog for about 2 years now. She loves the taste and size of the kibble- I can tell because she eats it all and finishes every last bit! I noticed that she doesn't do this with other brands of dog foods I have tried. She especially likes the Chicken formula, I've tried the other flavors as well. Overall, I think it keeps her at a healthy weight and healthy in general.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from All Around Great Dog Food I switched from another natural brand almost 5 years ago and I love this food for my dog, Charlie. It's a high protein food that has great, clean ingredients with nothing artificial added. It keeps my dog health and he loves it. I also love that I can switch between types like chicken, turkey, or salmon without any digestive issues.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Healthy Done Right I've had my rescue dog on this food for over 2 years now. When she came to me she was puggy and had a hard time running. Currently she runs like a deer,has fur that is soft and shiny, and never has any digestive problems. She is eager to eat at dinner time. I have no plans on changing brands.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent food! I used to feed my bullmastiffs (up to 7, plus the occasional litter of puppies) homemade raw food exclusively, plus home-baked treats. When I decided that I was getting a bit old and tired for all the work that entailed, I searched for a kibble that I thought would be a reasonable substitute. It was very important that the food be gluten-free, as one of my dogs was allergic to gluten. I decided on Instinct. That was 6 or 7 years ago, and I have never regretted it. It is an excellent food, and my dogs have thrived on it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dogs should eat real food, too. Our Border Terrier loves Nature's Variety Instinct kibble (with the exception of salmon; she will not eat raw tuna or any seafood.) We love that the protein is derived from real meat, and the additional ingredients include fruits and veggies, pumpkin seed, Omega 3s, and more. We also appreciate the variety of flavors, as we can alternate for an interesting, nutrient dense diet. Very health option (much more so that most) for our furry friends.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dog loves it! This is a great kibble for my dog. I just wish there was more of a variety for senior dogs. I know you can feed this throughout their lives but it would be nice to have a senior specific option. She is a German Shepherd mix and it would be nice to have something with glucosamine to help her joints. Other than that, great product!
