WELCOME TO THE FOOD GROUP - This group was started in an attempt to present well-researched and FACT-based information on the amazingly complicated and confusing issue of feeding our dogs. There are also many issues we would like to explore. We thought it would be helpful to put all of these questions, information, and feedback into one place here on DK where everyone can find it, contribute to it, ask questions, and learn together.
WE ASK THAT YOU NOT POST ANY RECOMMENDATIONS FOR PRODUCTS FOR WHICH YOU RECEIVE ANY TYPE OF COMMISSION OR COMPENSATION. THANK YOU.
IMPORTANT-PLEASE READ "FOOD GROUP GUIDELINES" BEFORE STARTING A NEW DISCUSSION.

Thanks Karen! We’re going to give them a try too!

Comment by Jolene, Sassparilla & Josie on April 26, 2019 at 8:44am

Thanks Karen we'll have to give these a try, Sassy can always use the extra glucosamine with her shoulder and bully sticks disappear in a flash. 

Comment by Karen, Jasper and Jackdoodle on April 26, 2019 at 8:32am

Otherwise, you can usually find them in the boutique pet supply shops that don;t sell stuff from China. 
Barkworthies is one good brand, Bentley's carries them.

Best Bully Sticks has a good deal on packages of them:

The aftermath... a happy customer lol

Comment by J and Riley (and Luna) on April 26, 2019 at 6:19am

Oh my, he must have been an aggressive chewer!  Yes bully sticks are pricey.  The big braided ones are $20, they do last longer though.

Comment by Karen, Jasper and Jackdoodle on April 26, 2019 at 6:15am

40 minutes is great! JD could polish them off in 20 minutes.
And they are cheaper than bully sticks, which lasted about 5 minutes for JD. 

Comment by J and Riley (and Luna) on April 26, 2019 at 6:13am

...and it's gone, lasted 40 minutes lol! Hey I had a nice quiet cup of tea during what is normally her morning crazy time.
