    Default First bully stick!

    After reading a bunch of posts on here about how great bully sticks are, I had to let Butters have a try. He LOVED this treat and it lasted 45 minutes! I took a bunch of pictures of him thoroughly enjoying it. Next time I will have to try the pony tail trick on the ears, though. His ears got so smelly that he needed a bath! But, I am so thankful to everyone who recommended them on this board because bully sticks now are his favorite chew

    Not to sound foolish, but what is a bully stick?

    It is actually kind of gross, but it is a low calorie and healthy chew that dogs love. It is a dried up bull "pizzle" or bull penis. My husband and I literally LOL'ed when he found out, which happened to be after Butters had finished the chew. Historically, bull pizzle has been used to make walking canes, medicinal powders, and is still eaten by some people raw and cooked around the world. Reading that made me feel better about the whole idea

    Paddy wack looks to be something different, but a similar idea. The ingredients online say it is dehydrated buffalo neck meat. I think bully sticks are sold in the UK, but I am sure someone else on the forum can verify that

    or this place also if the above is out:

    Some pet stores sell them too...Pet Biz does I know

    Cavalover...have you ever thought of getting a Snood for Butters? They look like this and are our lifesaver for Brooky when she is eating messy things:

    We bought Brooky's snood from this site, I LOVE them and they last ages and machine washable. Brooklyn come running and sits and waits to put hers on when she sees it because she knows that a treat is coming!

    Butters clearly enjoys this new found attraction

    My Kirra loves Tripe Sticks, although a kiss afterwards is not for the faint hearted
