Long-lasting treats for all types of chewers.

BIGGER THAN A TRAINING treat and longer lasting than a biscuit, dog chews can be handed over to reduce anxiety during a long night of thunderclaps or offered as a distraction when the grownups are trying to play. Next time you’re stocking up, take a break from stinky farm-to-shelf rawhide and look for a more refined approach to dog chews.

Rawhide Alternative

Many customers have lost their taste for traditional rawhide, turning to rawhide alternatives instead. Get your twisted ligaments and chewable hides from companies that use clean processing and steer clear of preservatives, grain, gluten and hormones — bonus if it’s from free-range animals like water buffalo. Some of these treats can be cut down to size, too, which reduces the choking hazards presented by traditional rawhide.

Long-Lasting

All chews are marketed as long-lasting, so differentiate one from another by selling chews with a story. Talk about the traditional and natural methods created by the indigenous people of the Himalayas, or hype chews made by Mongolia’s premier pet food processor. Use human-grade food words, even if it means keeping a straight face when you say, “Your dog is going to love this artisanal lamb trachea.”

Jerky

A hunk of jerky can keep a dog going for a while. For dog owners who need medium-size distractions or give treats to promote good saliva production, stock up on the jerky side of things. There are treats with a simple dehydration process, some with added probiotics and some that are a collage of foods with fruits and vegetable chunks visible in each jerky strip.
