Honest Kitchen Dog Food| The Who and The What …

The company was founded in 2002 by a lady named Lucy Postins. This lady and co-founder (video below) was a proud owner of a Rhodesian Ridgeback, a dog who suffered from frequent skin issues as well as painful ear infections. Lucy had a firm belief that a healthier diet would benefit her pooch and possibly eliminate theses skin and ear issues once and for all.

honest kitchen dog foodLucy was not convinced that the dog food market offered her anything that would meet her needs so she decided to make her own. She made this food in her own kitchen and started her pet on the recipes she made from home. Lucy quickly discovered that her pooch was showing remarkable results with this new source of food, and realized other dog owners could do so as well. As a result, the Honest Kitchen became a reality in 2002.

So what does the Honest Kitchen have to offer? To answer this question, you really need to start from the beginning when Lucy was making her recipes right from her own kitchen. Over the years, the company would offer a variety of recipes, all based on what pet owners were asking for. To better illustrate this, let’s break down these recipes throughout the years of the company’s existence.

  • 2002 – Dehydrated Whole Foods  
  • 2003-2005 – Grain-free Recipes ( The FDA approved the term Human Grade for her recipes)
  • 2006-2008 – Introduced a complete fish diet and grain-free turkey and beef meals
  • 2009-2011 – Actually publish their first recipe book for pet owners 
  • 2012-2014 – Launched a total of 7 new products
  • 2015-2017 – Introduced another 7 new products
  • 2018-2019 – Produced a dry food, with the safety and health benefits of 100% Human Grade. No prep work required!


What Is Dehydrated Dog Food?

Many of the recipes offered by Honest Kitchen are of the dehydrated variety. So what is dehydrated dog food? It’s a dry dog food, that is basically processed differently than the dry kibble you find in most dog foods. Honest Kitchen dehydrated dog food is processed in a manner that allows for the nutrients to be preserved and maintain its nutritional value. 

Removing as much moisture as possible is key to the dehydration process. By using this process, it is possible to lock in and maintain the nutrients within the ingredients. In addition, this process helps to preserve the food, giving it a much longer shelf life. The video below will give you a better understanding.

What Is Human Grade Dog Food?

Basically, the term human grade dog food is exactly what it appears to be. Dog food, in its finished product, is actually suitable and legal for human consumption as well. Now, I am not suggesting that you open a bag of Honest Kitchen dog food, pull out your fork from the kitchen drawer and enjoy the taste as your pooch would. 

The ingredients contained in the finished product are nutritious and edible for humans to consume, but keep in mind that this still dog food. Regulations put on human foods by the FDA and USDA are much more stringent than those regarding pet food. The FDA has approved the Honest Kitchen as a human grade feed.


Which Ingredients Are Used In Honest Kitchen Dog Food?

Before I get into the specific ingredients used in the Honest Kitchen recipes, it is important to point out the company’s belief when it comes to other pet food brands. The Honest Kitchen Company is not convinced that these other dog food brands are producing a natural and healthy recipe for pets.

They firmly feel that a human grade diet is the only way to ensure a safe, healthy and quality diet and produce their formulas based on this belief. Furthermore, the company believes that ingredients omitted from recipes is just as important as what actually is contained within a dog food recipe. Here is a list of those ingredients that are excluded from the company’s recipes.

  1. No fillers or by-productsthumbs down
  2. No wheat, corn or soy
  3. No ‘4D’ meats or feathers
  4. No GMO ingredients
  5. No preservatives or additives
  6. No ingredients from China

As you can see, Honest Kitchen strongly believes that these 6 ingredients area big ‘Thumbs Down’ that provide little to no benefits to our pets, and omit these from their recipes. In my opinion, many dog owners throughout the world express the same sentiments regarding these ingredients.

What Does Honest Kitchen Offer To Dog Owners?

The company offers a number of pet food options to their customers with a number of meals. As mentioned earlier, Honest Kitchen actually listens to the needs of dog owners, and produces recipes to meet these needs. Let’s break down these products below in detail to give you a better understanding of what this company offers. You can click on any of the product images for more details.

Conclusion|My Thoughts

I certainly hope this article will give you a better understanding regarding the Honest Kitchen Company, its products, and other pertinent information. The company believes that dehydrated dog food will provide your pet with the best nutrition, and seems to have impressed dog owners with these products.

Very few dog food companies can make the claim that their recipes are in fact Human Grade, and contain ingredients that are suitable for human consumption. Furthermore, the company has eliminated those ingredients from their recipes including fillers, by-products, corn, soy, wheat, etc.

The real test comes with the dog owners who actually purchased and fed these recipes to their dogs. In the dogarticle, I listed 3 different sites with reviews where the Honest Kitchen recipes have been purchased. All three of these sites indicate that the product was indeed seen as one that would be highly recommended to other dog owners.

I am obviously a dog owner myself, and one that feels that a pet is part of the family. Keeping my dogs happy and healthy has always been of great importance to me, and I have done extensive research on the benefits of a natural, healthy dog food. A disclaimer here: I have not purchased or used the Honest Kitchen recipes myself.

With that said, and after researching this product, I fully intend to purchase one of these recipes in the near future. As the owner of an Afghan Hound myself, this is a type of meal that I am sure she would enjoy. I feel confident in knowing that she will be receiving a nutritious, healthy diet with human grade ingredients.

I will definitely be back to let you know my opinion on the Honest Kitchen recipe that I choose, and I would ask that you leave a comment below as well. Have you tried one of these recipes? Have you seen any changes in your pet? Would you recommend this product to other dog owners? What has been your experience? Feel free to comment below, and thank you for taking the time to view this article. I sincerely hope that it has been helpful!





Hello there dog lovers! My name is Luke, a retired school administrator and professional baseball player. Like you, I am a passionate about the well-being of my pets. As a result of this, I have spent years of research in finding the best dog food products to ensure my dogs are receiving a healthy, nutritional diet. I actually enjoy the research, and want to share my findings with you, dog owners like myself. I am in no way an expert, but through my research, have knowledge as it relates to the benefits of a natural dog food.

Hi Luke, 

I like that Honest Kitchen Dog Food is made of 100% human grade ingredients, because I feed my for alot with left overs of the food I eat, so I like that when she’s eating the Honest Kitchen Dog Food, she won’t be missing out on the treats I have been sharing with her. 

I also like that the food is dehydrated, that way, it lasts much longer and saves me from waste. 

    Luke · April 12, 2019 at 5:37 pm

    Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment. Yes, the fact that the Honest Kitchen Dog Food is 100% human grade makes this brand quite appealing. It is also convenient that our pets will be actually consuming a healthy, wholesome treat without all of the unwanted ingredients. I sincerely hope the article has brought you some further insight regarding this product.

Ashley · April 12, 2019 at 5:08 pm

Dog food has always been important to me. I love my fur babies and always want them to stay as healthy as possible. This has been a good review on this product as I have not heard of this company. I will definitely have to look more into them and see about trying one of their recipes with my own babies. I would be interested to see why the negative reviews on Amazon and Chewy before trying.

Amanda · April 12, 2019 at 5:09 pm

I totally agree with diet change helping to improve skin irritations, it certainly works with humans why wouldn’t we extend this to our pets.  All of these products sound great and healthy for our four legged family members and I believe they deserve to be treated no less than we are.

My question for you though is do they also make cat food or other pet foods?

    Luke · April 12, 2019 at 7:39 pm

    Hello Amanda,

    Thanks for visiting and I totally agree with your feelings on diet and how it does make a difference in both the health of humans and pets. This in one of the major reasons I chose The Human Kitchen recipes to research, as I was intrigued with the whole ‘Human Grade’ concept. Looks to be a quality food for sure.

    And yes, the company does supply a variety of cat meals, treats as well.

    Thank you,

This article introduces me to something new that I have never heard, ‘dehydrated dog food’. I have three pups. They are my babies. To be honest with you, I have not seen the Honest Kitchen Dog Food brand either. Your article convinced me to at least give this brand a try. I purchase my dog food from Chewy. I’ve already bookmarked this article and will definitely order a sample to give to my pups. Thanks for the information.

    Luke · April 12, 2019 at 7:54 pm

    TQ, so glad you stopped by! I can tell you have a great love for your pups, which is always so good to hear. As you may have noticed in my article, I too am somewhat unfamiliar with the concept of dehydrated dog food which piked my interest. This is the main reason I decided to research this type of dog food and The Honest Kitchen company.

    I plan trying one of these recipes with my own dog as well and I will be glad to share my results with you. Please do the same, I would love to see what you and your pups think.

    Best of luck,


Salim · April 12, 2019 at 5:14 pm

I have seen and read through so many books on animals and their nutrition and when it comes to feeding dogs it’s more costly and cost effective to buy their feed from local stores rather than stress oneself through preparing a meal or feed for them. Though, your opinion was quite wonderful and nice but i just feel its cool that way.

    Luke · April 12, 2019 at 7:47 pm

    No problem, I wish you and your pets the best!


Tracy cole · April 12, 2019 at 5:14 pm

Dave Sweney · April 12, 2019 at 5:19 pm

The Honest Kitchen Dog Food company seems like a top-notch source for food for my pets. Your drill-down article laid it out nicely as to why this is the case. That the owner is someone that recognized that there was a gap in what was being offered in the market starting way back in 2002 has led to the current success they are experiencing.

That is in large part due to the owner I think, as she saw her dog in need, so developed the recipes with ingredients that helped the dog get healthy. That is a great start for a business, no doubt. I see that they have expanded their line by a huge amount over the years, and quality still counts when it comes to our pets.

My pets are part of my family so we treat them as good as any member of the family. The food they eat is important to me, I want to know they are getting proper nutrition with the food. I have seen cases where dogs are sick, stressed, or worse because owners do not feed them properly.

Especially knowing that they offer human-grade dog food is a huge plus for me. Not that I want to eat it regularly, but there is comfort in knowing that their food is that good!  The variety they offer is also more than enough to keep my pets happy, I am sure.

You have completely sold me on this brand and their line of dog food. The Honest Kitchen Dog Food will be in my home as fast as I can order it and see it delivered! Thanks for the work putting this together, I and my dogs are really happy to have found your website and this article!

    Luke · April 13, 2019 at 12:32 am

    Thanks Dave, for stopping by to read this article. I couldn’t agree with your comments more. The fact that the owner, watching her dog with health issues, and deciding to do something about it herself impacted me as well.

    Not only did she take matters into her own hands, she also found the compassion to share her recipes with other dog owners. Sure, it made her quite wealthy, but you can’t ignore the number of dog owners who benefited from these recipes.

    Happy to hear your pets are considered family, I feel the same way towards mine. Please let me know your experience with the Honest Dog Food, I would love to know how your experience with this food goes.

    Best of luck to you and your pets,

Vapz · April 12, 2019 at 5:46 pm

This a really beautiful idea from the founder of the Honest Kitchen. If we human beings do better healthwise with free range birds and naturally sourced vegetables and fruits without chemicals and all, how then do we think our pets wouldn’t also do better healthwise with these kinds of food. Now, pooch owners can be assured that their dog food is being prepared with the best nutritious products and made with utmost care. 

Making it human grade provides even more assurance that it is safe for the dogs and even more beneficial. I remember when my babies were young, I would taste any food I would give to them because I believed that if I couldn’t eat it,then there was no need to give it to them.

    Luke · April 14, 2019 at 1:13 am

    What a great thought! Taste your dog’s meal before placing it in front of them. You read and hear so much these days about a specific product that can change your life. Maybe, maybe not, but one thing for sure is the money these companies are putting in their pockets.

    I simply have a different vibe when I read about the founder of Honest Kitchen. I believe this lady, although doinf quite well financially, truly cares about the health of our pets.

    She and her company realizes the importance of healthy ingredients and have produced products that are good enough for human consumption. Hard to argue with that! 

    Thank you,


wadud1998 · April 12, 2019 at 6:09 pm

AnnetteCristina · April 12, 2019 at 6:33 pm

I love my Yorkie so very much. He’s getting up there in age now, turning 12 this year. But he’s always been a very finicky eater. It took a long time to finally find food he’d actually eat on its own when he’s hungry enough. I’ve many different types of food with no luck. Now,  I give him dry Cesar kibble and add fresh chicken to it every time. He’s happy with that. It took so long to finally find something he’s happy with, I hesitate to change it now. However, I will be ordering the Proper Topper Meal Booster and see how that goes.

    Luke · April 14, 2019 at 1:00 am

    Hi Annette, thanks for reading my article. Some dogs just are finicky when it comes to food, and I am happy you found something that your Yorkie seems to enjoy. 

    i think it is smart on your part to add fresh chicken to his diet, as it is a great source of protein. Please let me know how the Proper Topper works out for you. I look forward to your feedback.

    Thanks again,


Ranao · April 12, 2019 at 6:39 pm

Hey Luke,

I have greatly benefited by reading your important and informative article about Dog Food. I was looking for something like the Honest Kitchen recipes for my pet dog. I appreciate you for the realization that a pet is part of the family. I think Grain-Free Chicken & Cranberry Cookie Treats will be suitable for my poodle. What do you recommend? Hope I can find the price from Amazon.

Thank you sincerely for the useful review with some nice videos.

Warm wishes,

    Luke · April 13, 2019 at 12:56 pm

    Hello Ranao, glad you found my article. Yes, the treats you are asking about would be a nutritious and healthy one. I have no problem in recommending the Grain-Free Chicken & Cranberry Cookie as I prefer the grain-free for my own dog.

    You can find these treats on the Amazon or Chewy sites. Hope this helps, and thanks again for visiting my site.

    Thank you,


ashmcknight1 · April 12, 2019 at 6:48 pm

Dog food has always been important to me. I love my fur babies and always want them to stay as healthy as possible. This has been a good review on this product as I have not heard of this company. I will definitely have to look more into them and see about trying one of their recipes with my own babies. I would be interested to see why the negative reviews on Amazon and Chewy before trying.

    Luke · April 13, 2019 at 12:39 pm

    Hello Ash, happy to hear that you are a dog lover as well! The negative reviews (not many) from Amazon and Chewy had to do with taste. A few customers simply stated that their dog(s) did not like the taste. This may be attributed to the transition from one food to a new one.

    Thanks for visiting my site,


Rose · April 12, 2019 at 7:05 pm

I really appreciate the detail you have put into this article, from the beginning, till now of this company. I am very impressed with the ingredient list, of each of their different varieties of food, and the fact that is is all dehydrated not processed. You are right, about being part of the family, our pet Casey, I don’t think he knows, he is a dog. I refer to him as our Fur Baby. Every evening he has his food, then has supper with us. We have tried to find what we thought was the best for him. But, from your article, and viewing your site, I realize we need to find another alternative. This article has made me think seriously about a change in what we are feeding him. I have your site in my favorites so I can go over it with my husband. What is your personal favorite dog food at the moment?  

I will follow up to see you opinion of the Honest Kitchen dog food that you decided to try and your review.

    Hi Rose, thanks for visiting my article. Like you, I was not all that familiar with The Honest Kitchen Company which played a big role in learning more it. The more research I did, it became quite clear to me that the company’s beliefs are similar to my own.

    I think way too often, dog owners do not due due diligence or research when it comes to selecting the appropriate dog food. Pet owners should, and need to pay close attention to the ingredients within the bag they pull off the shelf at their local pet store.

    Sounds like Casey has a great home! That truly warms my heart when I hear stories like this one. 

    I will be ordering one of these Honest Kitchen recipes in a the next day or two and will be happy to provide you with some feedback in the very near future. I have a 12 year old Afghan Hound at home and will be transitioning to this new food very shortly. Best of luck to you and Casey and please let me know if you decide to give the Honest Kitchen a try. Thanks Rose.

To read that these lady Lucy and her co-founder were inspired by their own dog which suffers skin and ear issues to setup Honest kitchen to produce dog foodsfoods shows that one can derive inspiration from our daily lpives and make life better for  ourselves by setting up firm. Although I don’t like dogs but the inspiration I derive from this content is to go ahead and setup a firm that will solve problem. Thanks for the content.
