    Default Bully Sticks

    Does anyone give bully sticks to their dogs? I have heard not to give them to bulldogs due to chocking hazards, but The Dog Whisperer highly recommends them for rewards and distractions, even to his bulldogs. Today at the vets office Tank walked by a box of them and really wanted one. Just wondering yes or no.

    Stay away from these if you can. They're not very good for bullies IMO. They're worse than rawhides in the mess area. I ordered deer antlers once and they sent me bully sticks. I wasn't completely sure what an antler was suppose to look like and new what I got wasn't quite right. I gave it to Wilson anyway and after about 5 minutes of him chewing it, I threw all three in the trash. Here's the pic I took.





    Two thumbs down!! Just my opinion.

    Chula loves em! She only gets it when we can watch her with it. Yeah, they're a bit messy and some are really smelly. But she has perfectly clean teeth because of them and it keeps her occupied for a bit. We get the 12" long and "thick" ones and they last her for a few days with limited chewings. Nothing "bad" about them IMO.

    I give Bongo and Louie them but you do have to watch them because they get them really slimy and they could swallow them. Also my boys fart alot while there chewing on them because of all the gulping and open mouth chewing. But they love them.

    I had 5 or 6 packs of them and I threw them away.....Gracie swallowed one and it came out whole with a bunch of slimy stuff so I took her to the vet again for her stools and they said not to give her anymore. No raw hide bones for her either.

    Before we knew what they were made of we got a pack of 20, we did let them finish the pack but never again will I order them. Not only do they smell but I was nervous the whole time they would chew them. We got them antlers and nylabones instead, much better then the smelly bullie sticks!

    You are going to get mixed feeling from everyone on these and raw hide bones..... I have given the bully sticks but the ones I had were the smaller ones and they get so soft so quick they swallow them.....So I would def recommend the bigger the better.. I also give Cooper and I spoil my little sister @GRACIE11 (she doesn't let gracie have rawhide bines but I do ) I let Both Cooper and Gracie have bones.... I make sure I watch them close and when they get to the soft and chewy part where they want to swallow them I will take them away or I will cut it with scissors and throw the soft part away.... What I have found with raw hide bones is the same as the bully sticks....the bigger the better. Not as easy to swallow and takes longer for them to chew on them and get them soft and slimy..... I recommend the deer/elk antlers also....Cooper will chew on them but they don't compare to a rawhide...he would much rather have bone than an antler....I don't give bones daily but here and there I do and they Keep Cooper busy for quite awhile...especially at the puppy age when you have to watch them close with having potty accidents...it nice to give them a big bone to keep them distracted for awhile... But like I said you will get mixed feeling about the bully sticks and rawhide bones......Cooper loves them too much for me to not give them to him.....I just think us as bully parents have to be responsible and watch them close when they have them! Also there is a N-Bone white dental chew bone.....it is not the plastic nylabone thing but a white dental bone that is digestible and good for their teeth.....Cooper and Gracie both loved them and they take awhile for them to chew and don't break off in big chunks......... I also got Cooper a big Nuckle bone the other day. They are nice cuz they are shaped weird and are heavy they really have to work at them....take a long time to get the soft and they won't try swallowing it cuz its too big! I ramble sorry!!!

    Yes I do know what they are. They don't call them bully sticks cause they're for bulldogs LOL.

    My vet actually had the larger ones for sale at his office. That's where Tanks noticed them and was drawn to them.

    He has an antler and does chew on it some, but is teething and prefers his nylabones the most. I just thought the bully sticks would really give his choppers a good work out and would occupy him for awhile.
