BULLY STICKS FOR DOGS


WHAT IS A BULLY STICK?

If you have to ask “what is a bully stick?” then you've been missing out! Bully sticks are an all-natural beef dog chew that is not only made of a single ingredient, but fully digestible too. Known for their furniture saving properties, bully sticks come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. Whether its a large breed with a tough bite or a teething puppy with an appetite for destruction, Bully Bunches has the right bully stick for your dog.

ARE BULLY STICKS SAFE FOR DOGS?

Bully sticks are widely considered one of the healthiest and safest chews for dogs. Given the fact that they are 100% digestible and single ingredient, they are suitable for dogs with sensitive stomachs, and do a great job at keeping your dog busy while providing many health benefits. Please note that it is important to always supervise your dog while feeding. 

WHAT ARE BULLY STICKS MADE FROM?

Bully Bunches bully sticks are made from free range, grass fed cattle and contain only a single ingredient, 100% beef pizzle. Sound gross? It's not! In fact you probably would have never guessed it had you not read it here. Beef pizzle is jam packed with nutrition and is one of the healthiest, long lasting chews for dogs. Another added bonus is that this product would otherwise be discarded from human consumption making it a sustainable chew for dogs.

BULLY STICKS VS RAWHIDE

Ahh yes, the age-old showdown of bully sticks vs rawhide has finally come to a close. Rawhide is made from the skin or hide of a cow. The hide is usually rolled into popular shapes before being bleached white, and can sometimes even be held together by glue. Rawhide is not fully digestible, meaning it can often cause intestinal blockages. 

Bully sticks are a single ingredient, 100% digestible chew. This means even if your dog were to swallow a piece, it would likely breakdown in the stomach without causing any issue. With that being said, we still recommend supervising your dog while feeding any chew. In the bully stick vs rawhide comparison, we vote bully sticks all the way!

LOW ODOUR VS ODOUR FREE

Both our low odour and our odour-free bully sticks are made without the use of any chemicals, period. We take a very strong stance on this. What makes a bully stick odourless comes down to the raw material preparation and the time and temperature in which the pizzle undergoes inside the ovens.

Odour-free bully sticks take on a meticulous cleaning process which involves being soaked in cold water for up to 48 hours. After that, its on to the ovens where they spend a much longer time baking to ensure all moisture is removed.

The low odour sticks follow a much more streamlined process. A shorter cold water bath and a little less time in the ovens. What comes out is the same quality product, just with tad bit more smell. Some dogs prefer this while others not so much. 

WHY DO BULLY STICKS SMELL?

Bully sticks can sometimes have a strong odor due to the dehydrating and packaging process of the bull pizzle. Bully sticks from Bully Bunches contains no artificial additives and little to no odors.

HOW LONG DO BULLY STICKS LAST?

There are several factors that can determine how long a bully stick will last. Depending on the size of your dog, the type of chewer he or she is, and how long of a bully stick that is given, a bully stick will last anywhere between 15 to 60 minutes on average. For medium to large breeds and/or power chewers, we recommend the 12" length over the 6" bully stick as some dogs try to gulp down those last few inches whole!

HOW MANY BULLY STICKS WOULD YOU GIVE YOUR DOG PER DAY?

Bully sticks are a calorie dense treat and many owners opt to give a bully stick to their tippy-tapping tail waggers one a day.

WHEN SHOULD I GIVE MY DOG A BULLY STICK?

You can give your goodboi (or goodgirl) a bully stick whenever you like! We recommend treating them after a long walk, a training session, or after a few belly rubs!

ARE BULLY STICKS GOOD FOR PUPPIES?

Bully sticks are a highly delicious nutrient-dense treat that is great for dogs of all ages. Bully sticks are a great treat to give to teething puppies because it will give them something safe to chew instead of your furniture. So yes, this means that puppies can have bully sticks as well as all other treats that we offer here at Bully Bunches!
