What You Need To Know About Rawhide for Dogs


As I always find myself looking for the newest dog toys, I came across an article from Dr. Jon's Pet Advisor newsletter, talking about a Pentapull Squirrel. Dogs love tug-of-war and this toy should do the trick.  More about this toy in another posting because I want to make sure it works.

Since I subscribe to Dr. Jon's newsletter, and you can also at: www.petplace.com.  I appreciate his take on the many products he touts on his site which he also sells through www.petproductadvisor.com. I have purchased many of them, but to be truthful, I haven't shopped through his site yet because I have found better prices at other sites after adding in the cost of shipping.

While shopping around for the Pentapull Squirrel, I started looking at rawhide chew products because that puppy of mine just finished eating my rug, which is now rolled up and out of the room! The telephone book became the latest object of his desire and the Zogoflex toys I wrote about are great although some diversity may be necessary.

He needs to chew non-stop and when I thought about ordering a rawhide bone, I started to research rawhide to make sure what I would buy would not become problematic.

Here is a link to a site explaining rawhide which had helped me decide which product to purchase:  http://www.dog-bones.com/rawhide_bones.html.

Not all rawhide is the same and if you are going to give your prized pup anything, you have to make sure it is as safe as possible.  To begin with, buy with products made in the USA! There is much information provided on this site, so start reading soon.

Let your dogs have a way to use up all their energy by chewing on what is fun and safe.
