A Dogs Favorite Pastime Can actually Help Them
Chew, Chew, Chew
Do you have one of those dogs that chews on everything? Even if you don’t, I have never seen a dog that wouldn’t chew on something. That’s what they do! I was once asked, do you know why dogs chew on sticks? The reply was, because they are so good at it!
Whether your dog chews destructively or not, they do like to do it. The best thing you can do is give them something they are allowed to chew. A variety is better. They do like to switch it up every now and again. Make it to where they can choose what they chew on but are allowed to.
What To Chew
So many table legs, so little time. That is typically where you end up if you do not provide an avenue for them to use that energy on something they are allowed to. Why not give them a few things to choose from? You should be selective in your choice. Some toys, even ones that claim to be chew toys, should never be given to a dog. Some plastic or cloth toys are shredded in moments and in the dogs digestive system. That can be bad for the dog and even end up a trip to the vet.
Some hard plastic or rubbery materials are OK but you have to really inspect them for durability. A lot of this type, even if they do get pieces off they are small and non digestible so they will pass right on through. Is that a chance you really want to take?
There have been arguments back and forth on the rawhide, bones, and bully sticks. Again, you have to do some research. That is the point of this blog and this website. I have spent some time looking at the different ones that are available and read reviews to come up with some choices that are safe and actually good for a dog. Then I got some and let the dogs decide. They liked them all!
All Natural Is Good
I grew up living in the country. I have had dogs my whole life. I have seen them chew on some things that would make your stomach turn. Yet, they seemed to be fine with that. In fact, one of the oldest dogs I ever had done what ever, where ever he wanted. With that in mind, you have to remember it was out in the sticks. There was nothing processed, made of plastic, or fabricated in some factory.
I think this is where all the arguments come from on the rawhide, bones, and bully sticks came from. There are a lot of them that are processed in order to give them durability, flavor, or a certain smell. It isn’t the rawhide or bone that is bad. It’s what is put in it.
Best Bully Sticks
The name says it all. What I have found is my dogs love rawhide and natural bones. They will chew on other products but if given the choice they do have a favorite. The ones I have found are actually called Best Bully Sticks. The folks that make them take great pride in the process’ they use to keep them all natural and safe for dogs to chew.
They make all kinds of them. Curly Bully, Braided Bully, short and long Bully, Pretzel Bully to name a few. They also have a wide variety of natural bone, cartilage, and ear pieces that are actually good for a dog to chew.
I’m Here To Tell You
These are the best I found. My dogs love them. I think yours would too. These are all made from free-range, American, matured cattle. Carefully following a family recipe to avoid any chemical process in the US of A. Best Bully Sticks for dogs are made of all natural ingredients just like what I was talking about before. These treats can occupy the most avid chewer and its good for their dental hygiene. The activity they get from chewing these can relieve tension and provide a small bit of exercise.
Here are a few that I recommend. As you can see they make these to suit any size dog.
I want this one!
And I’ll have one of those
So leave it to the proffesionals! Its good for them!
As always, Would love to have a pic of your coolest dog on the planet to add to the gallery.
