Bully sticks; your dog loves them and you want to make sure you’re giving your furry companion the best and healthiest dog treats out there. So, we’re going to break down the facts and get down to the pizzle of the bull, so you can find the best and healthiest ways for your pooch to enjoy bully sticks.

What are Bully Sticks?

Bully sticks are…. Well, a bull’s pizzle. Bully. Stick. Say that back to yourself a couple of times and now, the name will finally make sense.

Bully Sticks Are Safe

With many brands claiming their dog treats to be the best on the market, it can be difficult to determine which dog treats are truly safe for your pooch. Bully sticks are one of them. Even the American Kennel Club recommends using bully sticks as a safe and healthy treat for your dog. Unlike many other types of dog bones and stick-like treats, bully sticks do not splinter, which eliminates the risk of broken pieces causing internal problems.

Fact: When you buy bully sticks for your dog at the Big Pet Stores, you're getting undersized treats with zero health benefits. AND YOU ARE OVERPAYING! No chit.

Want full size, long-lasting, and healthy bully sticks that your dog will go crazy for? They'll cost you less than a trip to your Pet Supply store, too. Take a look.

Tough Enough to Last

Bully sticks are exceptionally durable and can be gnawed on for days. So, instead of going through an entire bag of dog treats in one week, you can have one treat last you one week… or however long your dog takes to devour it.

Bully Sticks Are Like a Tooth Brush For Your Dog

Since they require your dog to do a whole lot of chewing, bully sticks are a great way to clean their teeth and to support healthy gums. The continuous gnawing that bully sticks require helps scrape away plaque buildup and if you ask us, that sure beats holding the pooch down as they fight the toothbrush.

Size Matters

With any dog treat, there comes a risk of choking when your pooch has devoured the majority of it, and as your dog enjoys the bully stick, it will slowly break down in size. When it gets really small, some dog owners choose to replace it with a new one to avoid the risk of choking, especially if they have an enthusiastic eater. But who wants to waste such a delicious treat? To allow your dog to enjoy every last bit of their bully stick, use a Bully Stick Companion that locks the treat in place to prevent your dog from swallowing the last nub. When ready, simply pop the remaining piece out of the Bully Stick Companion and toss it to your dog.

    I’m surprised that after stating some people toss small ends of bully sticks to avoid risks of choking that it’s suggested to toss the remaining piece to your dog.
    I have a four month old puppy that means the world to me, and I’ve been researching the pros and cons of different treats. This was just mind boggling.
