“Instinct” Raw Boost Bites From Nature’s Variety

Hi Guys! Brrrr!!!  It’s C-O-L-D here in Michigan! When the weather gets like this sometimes a guy just needs something to boost his vitality and health!

I was excited when Mom told me that a nice lady from Nature’s Variety asked if I would like to taste and review  new treats that they have on the market.


"Treats?" You don't have to ask ME twice!

The treats I was given to test and review were:

Instinct ® Raw Boost Bites

They say that “the purest form of pet nutrition is a wholesome raw diet. ” The Raw Boost Bites are pure and healthy, minimally processed treats.

  Dogs and (cats )can benefit from a boost of essential natural nutrients anytime and anywhere with new Instinct® Raw Boost Bites.  The convenient, freeze-dried bites offer the same nutritional benefits of other Instinct Raw varieties – helping with increased energy, digestive health, lean muscle – and are ideal for training, traveling and treating. Made for both dogs and cats, these healthy treats come in 4-ounce packages of great-tasting varieties including chicken, beef, lamb and venison.

The flavors I was given to try were chicken formula and lamb formula! I was particularly excited about the lamb because I had never tasted lamb before!

Needless to say I LOVED THEM!

What Mom likes (in addition to the benefits listed above) is when she read the side of the box the ingredients are easy to pronounce meaning they don’t have strange things added that aren’t good for us. Some of the ingredients in the lamb formula are:

Lamb, Lamb Heart, Lamb Liver, Pumpkin seeds, Apples, Carrots, Butternut Squash and a host of other good-for-you tasty things!

Since I don’t always go through treats as fast as you would think  (I don’t eat ALL day you know!) Mom asked about the shelf-life of the Raw Instinct Boost Bites. The nice lady from Nature’s Variety said that “no refrigeration is required if closed properly”

Mom loves the size of these treats because she can break them up and put them in my treat toys, and she doesn’t have to give me an entire treat at once (that’s good for HER but bad for ME! BOL!)


“Nature’s Variety is an independent pet food company in the Midwest. Our purpose is to empower people to transform the lives of pets.

Anyway, I LOVE my Raw Boost Bites, by Nature’s Variety and Mom and I are hoping that you check them out too!

I was not compensated for this review. (Well, the TREATS were GREAT compensation! BOL!) Seriously, Mom and I were not given any George Washington’s (if ya know what I mean!) Just delicious treats for me to enjoy and Mom to feel GOOD about giving me! Thanks Nature’s Variety!

  7. Dakota,

    I’m not surprised your mouth was watering when you saw those yummy treats!! 🙂

    Someone in your house is very clever with the photos – was that you who did that one with the treats, you and the thought bubble?! Or did your Mum help? Very impressive!! 🙂

  8. This sounds like a treat I need to check on for Brisco. More good tasting and good for you treats are needed for both dogs and cats.

    Thoughts in Progress

    • Hi Mason!

      I bet Brisco would love them! I agree we definitely need more healthy treats!

      Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  9. Those sound yummy! Freeze-dried treats are the best, easy to train with(or put in treat toys) and packed full of nutrients that aren’t killed by heat.

    • Hi Cynthia! Yep! So true!!! Be sure to stop by tomorrow 🙂

      Barks and licks and love, Dakota
