Not all bully sticks are created equal which is why you want to consider shape, length, and thickness when asking yourself “What are the best bully sticks for dogs?” Whether your pup is large or small, old or young, here is our guide to the best bully sticks for your dog.

Choosing The Right Bully Stick

One of the most important things to remember with all chews, including bully sticks, is to pick the right size bully sticks for your pup. Bully sticks can range in size from four to twelve-inch options. Generally, chews like a bully stick should be larger than your dog's mouth and if there’s doubt, go with a larger size. Dogs with sensitive teeth should stick with lighter chewing options. Always remember, you know your dog best! So, make sure to take into consideration your dog’s health, age, diet, and chewing capacity before introducing a new treat.

Chewing Safety

Whenever you introduce a new bone, it’s important to monitor your dog and provide plenty of fresh water. We recommend minimizing chewing time to three to five minutes at first and increasing it over five days. Also, be extra attentive to young dogs and puppies, and steer away from chews altogether for puppies under three months of age.

As a responsible dog owner, you should only allow your dog to consume these products in moderation and they should not replace any meals.
