    Does anyone have any opinions or tried the Honest Kitchen Dehydratd Raw dog food?
    I am looking for something simple to take with me on a road trip and I hoped that this might be the answer. I could take some raw food with me and some canned fish/tripe, but I was wanting some sort of dehydrated food to make life a little easier.

    Any opinions?

    My dogs did not like it. We travel with either Innova EVO or I shop at a local grocery store while I am on the road.

    We've tried it but my dogs were not in love with it and all the veggies gave them running poo. If your dog is not picky and not sensitive, it may be okay. It's nice to use but wasn't so good for my two.

    My dogs go nuts for it. :) I've used it for road trips, and at times when I've forgotten to thaw something! Another option, though more expensive, would be freeze-dried raw.

    Thanks! I will get some and make sure to try it out well in advance of the trip in case the dogs don't like it.

    Mine HATE it. Well, they hated Embark and only severely disliked the Force. :)

    We tried it for the same reason. I'd try Evo or Solid Gold Barking at the Moon instead, personally. The trip is stressful enough for them that it's hard to get them to eat anything very well. So, you're probably better off trying something more palatable, depending on how long the trip is.

    My dogs also disliked honest kitchen. They do love EVO, but be prepared for the gas.

    I've been debating about buying this too because I am travelling to a dog show in two weeks and I need to figure out what to put Ishie on while on the road but I don't want to take the risk of diarhhea. So perhaps I'll pack some food in a cooler and buy more along the way.

    I got some samples of Embark just to try, and all of my dogs ate it. So, now I can buy the big bucket to take on my trip.

    The reason I can't go with EVO is because I have a puppy, otherwise I would do this because my dogs have eaten this in the past.

    I take raw on the road. How long will you be out? My stuff usually takes 24-36 hours to thaw out anyway, so it stays sufficiently cold in a cooler for 2-3 days
