Finding a truly exciting, delicious, and good-for-you chew for your four-legged friend can be hard with how many products are on the shelves these days. Every dog needs to have a good gnaw once in a while as chewing stimulates a dog’s brain and keeps them preoccupied long enough to avoid destructive behaviors brought about by boredom and restlessness.
So, if your dog needs something exciting that is delicious and equally as mentally stimulating, look no further than Natural Farm’s Hooves Products. They are perfect for the pups that love to have a long and satisfying chew experience and come in a classic Standard Hooves variety and in a fun twist with flavored Stuffed Hooves options.
We’ve outlined everything you need to know about them below.
What Are Standard Hooves?
Standard Hooves are cow hooves that just last and last, providing your dog with long-lasting entertainment all while cleaning their teeth. Hooves are made from a protein called keratin, which, while hard and dense, will wear down over time, which is why hooves are intended for gnawing as opposed to consumption.
Hooves offer an excellent, healthy way for your dog to release pent-up energy or anxiety. Standard Hooves can also be filled with yummy dog-friendly fillings if you like to get creative in the kitchen, and they’re best for moderate chewers.
Natural Farm’s Hooves are sourced from free-range, grass-fed Brazilian cattle that are completely free of hormones, chemicals, and antibiotics.
Benefits of Standard Hooves
Standard Hooves are all-natural and long-lasting chews that give your dog an engaging chewing experience they will love! One of the main benefits is that gnawing on hooves naturally helps promote healthy teeth and gums, which can help reduce the risk of dental problems in the future and freshen breath now.

What Are Stuffed Hooves?
Stuffed Hooves are standard hooves that have been filled with delicious, all-natural fillings for an ultra-enjoyable gnawing experience that is equally as lasting.
Available in mouthwatering flavors like Bacon & Cheese, Peanut Butter, Chicken, and Sweet Potato, these clean ingredient stuffings offer irresistible, protein-filled flavor with a dual texture for a long-lasting and engaging gnawing experience your dog will go crazy for!
These chews are best for moderate chewers and are also sourced from free-range, grass-fed Brazilian cattle that are completely free of hormones, chemicals, and antibiotics.
Benefits of Stuffed Hooves
Stuffed Hooves are all-natural and long-lasting, offering an engaging gnawing experience pups adore! The scrumptious fillings are made from clean ingredients and provide a mentally stimulating dual texture experience—dogs can lick up the flavorful fillings and gnaw on the hard exterior. Another huge benefit: Stuffed Hooves help promote healthy teeth and gums by naturally scrubbing away tartar and plaque as they gnaw, which can help reduce the risk of dental problems in the future.

Cons of Cow Hooves
While there are many benefits to cow hooves for dogs that make them an appealing option, they may not be the best fit for every pup.
Cow hooves are intended to provide long-lasting and engaging gnawing experiences—if your dog is a particularly light or heavy chewer, we do not generally recommend these chews. This is because cow hooves are hard and dense enough that light or sensitive chewers may not get as much enjoyment while gnawing on them, while overly aggressive chewers may have the potential to break the chews as they gnaw, which could be dangerous for your dog if they accidentally swallow or chew on any broken pieces. For this reason, it's important to always monitor your dog as they gnaw to ensure they are enjoying their hooves safely and properly.
Rest assured that Natural Farm offers a wide variety of treats, chews, and bones, and we’ve got options for every dog! So, if cow hooves don’t sound like an ideal option for your pup, you can browse our entire collection of all-natural offerings to discover your dog’s new favorite chews.
