The dog chews created by family-owned Bully Bunches are all-natural and sustainable chew treats pet owners can feel good about giving to their dogs. Each chew is made from a single ingredient and is 100 percent digestible.
Bully Bunches was founded in 2015 after the family’s puppy swallowed an indigestible product and became ill. Pet owners are increasingly looking for alternatives to traditional rawhide chews because of the risks they pose to dogs. For example, rawhides are made with toxic chemicals, and some flavors may contain carcinogens. In addition, dogs that are strong chewers can break off chunks of rawhide, which, if swallowed, can cause the dog to choke or obstruct its digestive system. Teeth fractures are also common.
Bully Bunches’ series of pet chews is a safe alternative to traditional rawhide chews. The company produces its dog chews by using raw materials from free-range, grass-fed bulls raised in South America for human consumption. Materials such as ears, trachea, tails, and hooves are by-products of beef processing, so Bully Bunches turns these materials into dog chews to ensure nothing is wasted. The result is an all-natural, healthy, and sustainable treat.
Pet chews offer an ideal alternative for dogs that like to chew on furniture, shoes, and other household items. They’re also great for teething puppies. Bully sticks are one of the most popular pet chews and come in a variety of lengths, thicknesses, and shapes. Because these sticks are made from a single ingredient and 100 percent digestible, they are considered one of the healthiest and safest dog chews.
Other Bully Bunches products include beef jerky, pig and cow ears, tripe chews, and yak chews sourced from Nepal. Yak chews, made in the Himalayan Mountains from an ancient recipe, are a hard cheese chew perfect for large dogs that are strong chewers. Hare sausage, venison sausage, cow hooves, and beef trachea rings are also available.
Choosing the right natural dog chew
Switching to all-natural dog chews benefits pets in a number of ways. For example, chewing on things keeps dogs’ teeth clean and healthy by removing plaque and tartar buildup. In addition, dog chews — particularly long-lasting varieties — can relieve boredom and keep dogs occupied. There’s also evidence that chewing releases endorphins, which can calm anxiety.
Dog chews are ideal treats to reward good behavior and can prevent destructive behavior. All-natural chews are also less likely to splinter, so owners can feel confident their dog will be safe.
When choosing a dog chew, start by considering the dog’s size. The chew should be relative — small chews for small dogs and large chews for large dogs. In addition, check the toughness of the chew, as smaller dogs may prefer treats that are softer and easier to chew. More durable treats that last longer are ideal for larger dogs.
Next, consider the nutritional benefits of pet chews. For instance, those made from backstrap and other tendons are high in protein and collagen and low in fat. In addition, trachea chews are softer and contain chondroitin and glucosamine, which are good for dogs with joint issues. Avoid chews with flavored coatings if the dog has a sensitive stomach.
Bully Bunches is committed to providing all-natural dog chews that are sustainable and 100 percent digestible to keep pets safe.
