Dachshund Nola Reviews: Instinct Raw Boost Bites

Okay I have posed. Where's my treat?
Hi everyone! I have a pawsome review for Mr. Chewy to share with you all today. I'm furry excited to be reviewing Nature's Variety Raw Boost Bites in both venison and chicken formula. According to Mr., Raw Boost Bites are "a pure and healthy treat made from minimally processed, freeze-dried ingredients. Each delicious piece provides the benefits of raw in an energizing and highly palatable bite sized treat".  And guess what? These treats are 100% grain free and are proudly made in the USA.
I absolutely loved these treats! Dachshund Mommy: I've never seen Nola go so crazy for a treat. Ever. And the ingredients are just stellar!

Ingredients for Raw Boost Bites Venison Formula:
Venison, lamb heart, lamb liver, pumpkinseeds, apples, carrots, ground lamb bone, butternut squash, ground flaxseed, montmorillonite clay (a natural purifier), broccoli, lettuce, spinach, dried kelp, apple cider vinegar, parsley, honey, salmon oil, olive oil, blueberries, alfalfa sprouts, persimmons, inulin, rosemary, sage, clove.

Ingredients for Raw Boost Bites Chicken Formula:
Chicken, turkey, turkey liver, turkey heart, pumpkinseeds, apples, carrots, ground chicken bones, montmorillonite clay, broccoli, lettuce, spinach, dried kelp, apple cider    vinegar, parsley, honey, salmon oil, mixed tocopherols with citric acid (a natural preservative), rosemary, blueberries, alfalfa sprouts, persimmons, inulin, sage, clove.

Very impressive! Great for pups (or kitties! Both can eat these) on grain free diets or with food allergies like yours truly.

Made in the USA
Stellar ingredients
Allergy friendly
All natural
Grain free
Resealable package
Smells good (to me)
Gives a boost of energy
Light weight if you were out and about and needed a snack

Too big to feed whole to a dog my size
Dachshund Mommy: They have a very strong smell
Price is kind of high for the amount you get (roughly $10 for 4oz)

All in all, I give these treats 4 paws up and the Doxie seal of approval! I highly recommend these treats to anyone, especially fellow allergy pups.

Thank you, Mr. Chewy for letting me review this yummy treat!
Kisses and Tail Wags,

It's from Chewy!

Must I do all the work?

She asked for it

Way too big to feed to a dog my size. I get like a quarter of this.

Must. Resist. 

I liked the venison better

What, you were trying to take a picture of just the treats? Oops. 

Group shots are impossible around here.

Do I have something on my nose?


  1. Ooooh, anything that looks like a treat is good for us!

  2. You gotta little somethin' there, but I wouldn't be able to resist diving in on those treats either!

  3. Wow, Mr. Chewy must LOVE you to send you treats! They do look awfully big for someone as petite as you and your siblings. :-)

  4. That sure sounds (and smells) like a yummy treat! We think you might want to flick your tongue over your nose, Nola. :)

  5. Just give your nose a lick and you will look good as new.


  6. Ooooo! I think those sound yummers! Count me in! They look like the perfect size for my big mouth.



    Peesss: The pics are just adorable!!!

  7. The picture of Nola on the box made me cute!

  8. You know you're a superstar when you have your own promo code! Little Auggie makes my heart melt.

  9. Why yes Nola, you do have something on that cute little nose of yours. Do you need some help from me to get it off of there? Come on over and bring some of those yummy looking goodies of yours with ya. Mommy said I can eat a whole one, not just a quarter of it. So maybe you should bring a few of them.

    Hope that you're having a great day. Mommy's working hard on the Olympics over here and has ignored Muffin and I all afternoon. This morning we had a "glam" day. Ears cleaned, butt's..... and a bath to top it all off. Now we're looking really good!

    Say hi to your gang for us.

  10. You lucky girl, Nola! Thanks for the great review. I bet that you didn't mind the "strong smell", did you?

  11. If they are too big you can send them our way! :)

  12. Isn't Mr. Chewy great? Those look like great treats!

  13. Lol - so cute. Sounds like Bella might really like these. It's also nice to know they're Nola's mom-approved. That means we don't have to worry about quality since we know she already did. ;)

  14. Nola, thank you for that very informative report. Mommy just sent out a Mr. Chewy order and I can't wait. I can't have wheat, corn, beef or chicken so the venison one is perfect for me. Maybe we can try those next time. I hope you get lots of treats.,

  17. Great review Nola! I love the look on your face in that first picture. You can be so demanding! LOL! :)

  18. look at all those happy doxie faces around their treats! love a product made in the USA. thanks for the review!!

  19. I have seen those around. Glad to hear what you think of them. We will be giving Instinct's grain-free kibble with freeze dried meat pieces and I wonder if it's not just their food with these treats mixed in. We shall see.
