Food Toppers! - Instinct

Food Toppers!
Part 2

Why use food toppers?
When we travel, like recently when we visited family for Easter. Probably due to stress and excitement, Dante and Ziva tend to skip meals. Being an overbearing mama I hate it when they do this, although it's pretty normal having lived with them for so long. One great way I've figured out to get them to eat, is to entice them with a yummy treat...healthy of course, no junk food or people food. And freeze dried toppers have become a staple in our pantry, they fit the bill! A little bit on top of the pups regular food and BOOM next thing you know they've licked their bowls clean and are begging for more. Literally.


This time we tried - 
Instinct by Natures Variety
Raw Boost Mixers
Beef Recipe

If you've been paying attention you will remember that Ziva is intolerant to beef....oops. I'm a goof that was totally my fault for getting the wrong protein. So we kept it to a minimum...shhhhhh...don't tell her that Dante got more!!


They come in a variety of protein options so don't make the same mistake that I did.



What we liked about Instinct Raw Boost - 
  • Made from raw, whole food ingredients that were minimally processed to maintain nutritional value. They are freeze dried for longevity of course, so they keep a long time!
  • Smell's great, and no mess!
    Which of course makes it easy to give as a treat during training time.
  • Made with a single protein source, organ meat, and a variety of fruits as well as vegetables. For a healthy variety.
  • Made in the USA, all natural ingredients with no corn/wheat/soy/by products/ or artificial colors or preservatives.
This is definitely a great topper, we only use a small handful with each meal so one bag went a long ways in our house!

Food Toppers!! - Nulo

Food Toppers!
Part 1!

"We were sent Nulo from Chewy.com in exchange for an honest review. Dz Dogs only supports products that we feel are relevant to our readers. This blog contains NO affiliate links, all thoughts and opinions are our own."


We like to keep things fun and new at our house, offering lots of variety when it comes to toys, treats, and food.

One of our favorite food toppers that we've discovered is - 

Nulo Freestyle
Freeze - Dried Raw
Salmon & Turkey Recipe

What we like about Nulo - 
  • Only two sources of protein! This is important when dealing with allergies, through trial and error we've discovered Dante has a chicken intolerance, and Ziva has a beef intolerance. Due to the digest upset these proteins cause they are strictly off our menu. Turkey and Salmon on the other hand? Bring it on!  83% of the protein is Slamon, turkey, organ meat & bone.
  • Includes probiotics to aid in digestion, along with an awesome blend of vegetables and fruit including pupkin, strawberries, blueberries, kale, spinach...
  • Freeze dried awesomeness! No fuss, no mess!  We toss a small handful it right on top.  


Extra Bonus?

It also works great as a treat!

Snow?!

Snow, Snow, GO Away..


Anybody else getting snow in February? 



Well, how about March?


We are! Part of us wants to do a happy dance - because boy do we love snow!


However, going to work in it (not quite enough to skip work for a "snow day") and being cold without playing in it takes all the fun out of it.

We're enjoying it while we can though! Lots of zoomies, followed by snuggle time.


And of course loving our awesome view in our new home!!

Gotta admit though, the view from our living room is killer!!

Hopefully soon our nice warm weather will be back! Right now it's kind of like Mother Nature is having cold flashes. Just when we think we might get a hike in....BAM more snow.

Anyways we'd love to hear how the weather is at your house! Let us know in the comments below!
