Important Safety Tips & Chew Strength Recommendation




TIP #1 - POLICING YOUR POOCH - Always supervise your dog when consuming any chew. Dogs do not know how to do the Heimlich maneuver, nor do they have hands with opposable thumbs to reach and grasp things from their mouth. While our natural chews are digestible, if a dog has an opportunity to bite off and swallow a sizeable piece of a Bully Stick, Trachea, or Beef Cheek it can present a choking hazard or internal obstruction.

TIP #2 - SAFE AND SECURE - Use a Bully Stick Holder to firmly secure bully sticks and throw away the last inch or two.

TIP #3 -NO FAT SHAMING - There is nothing cuter than a dog who is pleasantly plump but more than 50% of dogs in America are overweight which can cause health issues. If you offer your dog a large beef cheek, ration it over a few sessions. If you have a 25-pound power chewer who loves super monsters space it out over a few days or even a week. Treats like Elk Jerky and Chicken Strips are low-fat and can be broken into small pieces for multiple treat sessions. Turkey Tendons are also a lighter, leaner option for dogs.

TIP #4 - PERSNICKETY POOCH? - If your dog is finicky about Bully Sticks instead of Charcuterie (Odor Free) try Traditional Bully sticks (Low odor) or Premium Select (Moderate odor) or delicious Liver Coated Steer Sticks. Some dogs just love odor.

TIP #5 - COOL THINKING - If you want to keep Bully Sticks fresh for a long, long time (1-1.5 years) consider storing them in the freezer in an airtight container or bag. Keeping Bully Sticks at room temperature in something airtight will also keep them fresh.

TIP #6 - USA VERSUS BRAZIL.  Most of our chews and Bully sticks are Made in the USA, but our Traditional Bully Sticks are made in Brazil in FDA and USDA-inspected facilities. Why Brazil? Well, the cattle are free-range and grass-fed, and you probably didn't know that Brazil exports 100 million dollars of beef to the United States monthly for human consumption. And don’t forget about those delicious Brazilian steakhouses in the USA like, Texas de Brazil, Fogo de Chao, or Chima.

TIP #7 - CHEW ON THIS – A Dog's teeth are designed to Bite, Tear, Shear, Shred, and Crush. It stands to reason that kibble or canned food is not cutting it. By providing chews like Bully Sticks you are exercising your dog's jaw, cleaning their teeth, and providing an outlet to do what's natural and instinctive. Chewing helps reduce stress and prevents destructive chewing.

TIP #8 - PROCESS THIS, most dog foods and treats are overly processed with preservatives and fillers plus they are laden with carbohydrates. Most body parts are natural, single-ingredient, and contain no additives, carbohydrates, or preservatives.
