Most of you probably know all about these dog treats, but you might not know exactly what the benefits are, so kick up your paws, perk up your ears and i'll share some tasty bully stick facts with you!
What exactly are bully sticks?A bully stick...well, there is just no light way to put this - it's a bull penis. Also known as Pizzle.
They are dried and twisted, for a 100% all natural beef treat for our dogs. Poor bulls, I know.
What are the benefits of Bully Sticks?
There are several benefits when it comes to these beef treats - to name a few:
- Great for their teeth.
- Natural treat, free of dyes, and pesticides.
- Works great to help calm dogs who suffer from anxiety.
- Helps stop destructive behavior.
- Dogs love them!
Bully sticks are great for dogs teeth.
If you have never given your dog one of these beef chews before, you may not realize, it takes a good amount of gnawing and chewing to finish them off. The gnawing helps grind that unwanted plaque and tartar off of your 4 legged friend's teeth, to help maintain good oral hygiene. Did you know that over 80% of dogs over the age of 3 already have Periodontal Disease? Those are crazy stats! So I am all for doing anything in my power to help keep their chompers, pearly white.
Bully sticks are a natural treat, free from dyes and pesticides.Unlike rawhide chews which contain artificial flavors, colors, and not to mention the choking hazards they cause, Bully sticks are natural, no artificial anything - and has just ONE ingredient: BEEF!
Works great to help calm dogs who suffer from anxiety.You may be wondering exactly what I mean by this, and how the heck could a chew possibly help anxiety? Think of it as a stress ball for us humans, or other stress reducing activities we do. Gnawing has a calming effect on dogs. I created a video which I will post down at the bottom of this page, of Koda gnawing away on his Bully stick, when you watch it, note his eyes and actions towards the end of the video, you can see how much (in just minutes) it has calmed him.
Helps stop destructive behavior.
Often times, a destructive dog is a bored dog, or a dog who has some bent up energy. When you feed a treat, such as a Bully stick, to your dog, it helps with mental stimulation, and can literally tire them out by the time the stick is gone. Aside from that, it keeps them busy for quite some time!

Dogs love them!
Need I say more? Dogs love these natural beef treats, and they last! What more could a furry pup want? If you haven't tried them yet, I encourage to do so! But remember, dogs should be supervised while eating any sort of bone, or treat. Always ensure you purchase the proper size treat for your dog. If you have something too small, it can create unnecessary choking hazards.
Here is the video I previously mentioned. Remember to note the change in his behavior and eyes towards the end, and see just how much gnawing on a bully stick appears to calm him.
