If you have a new puppy, you’re probably already having some anxiety.
Is my puppy going to tear apart my home once they hit teething age? How do I avoid that sort of damage
Your best option is to provide your dog with the right chew. What are the best chews for puppies, though?
There are a lot of options on the market, and as a responsible pet owner, you want to make sure that you’re getting safe, healthy, cost-effective, long-lasting dog chews. Let’s take a look at the best chews for puppies currently available on the market.
Bully sticks for dogs are one of the best options for owners looking for an all-natural chew that provides a health benefit. While chew toys tend to be the first choice among pet owners, they pose some issues:
- Most (especially stuffed animals) are very easy to tear apart.
- They offer no nutritional benefit to dogs.
- Torn apart pieces — which are choking hazards — are easy to swallow.
Bully sticks are perfect for most any dog, as they’ve got everything they want: the all-natural smell and taste, as well as all the nutrition to make them feel energized. What makes them great for owners is their various benefits. Bully sticks are:
- Good for digestive health
- Good for dental health
- Good for tendons, muscles, and joints
You might be wondering, most of all, how they’re good for your dog’s teeth? Bully sticks are durable, which means they’ll need a good amount of chewing to get through. That grinding and scraping will not only strengthen your dog’s jaw, but it will scrape their teeth clean — removing all excess plaque to keep their teeth looking clean and their mouth smelling fresh.
If you’ve ever had trouble convincing your dog to let you brush their teeth, bully sticks are the perfect workaround.
However, you should watch over your puppy while they chew on bully sticks. While they’re durable, that doesn’t mean that a large piece won’t break off every now and again — especially if your puppy is a rough chewer. Watch over them to make sure they’re not chewing too hard or fast, as well as making sure you remove any larger pieces when they break them off. Our 4-inch bully sticks are a great starting option!
Whole Pig and Cow Ears
When it comes to chews for puppies, you want something that is safe, fun, and healthy. Whole pig and cow ears are the ultimate for puppies. They can spend so much time enjoying the ear chews, as these are true long-lasting chews.
That continued gnawing and chewing is perfect for the health of your puppy’s teeth and gums. The fact that they’re easy to digest and all-natural makes them that much better. Your dog is sure to love the texture of them, too, as they’ll feel more natural between their paws — as if they’re in the wild enjoying a treat among their pack.
