Fancy a Chew, Wood You?
Fancy a Chew, Wood you?
For many of our dogs, chomping on their favourite chew can be the best part of their day. Busting hours and hours of boredom, the perfect chew can really determine the day our beloved dogs have.
With the latest research exposing the harsh ingredients and chemicals featured in some of the world’s leading brands of dog chews – it is no surprise why many of us are chewsing more natural options for our pets.
As many of us opt for a meaty based chew for our four-legged friends, companies are developing bigger and better chews to keep our dog’s teeth in check and keep them occupied for hours and hours. Popular chews on the market are derived from bone or meat-based products, but we have a new chew on the market that promises to give our pets all the chewing fun they want and need.
Wood based chews are currently soaring on the dog food market and we aren’t surprised. Long-lasting, durable and tasty beyond belief, wood based chews are ideal from puppies all the way to golden oldies so no matter the pooch, we have a chew for you.
Instinctively, dogs have an urge to chew. Their ancestral carnivorous nature and their instinct to hunt means grabbing a hard, durable substance to gnaw satisfies both their primal needs and helps maintain mouth and dental health.
Every dog has a natural need to chew. This often starts when they are puppies, and can involve chewing our furniture and shoes! Chewing gives natural dental care and occupies the dog. Wood chews are a great way for your dog to satisfy his chewing instincts.
When you choose to invest in a wood chew, you are investing in a product that doesn’t break, crack or splinter and is 100% safe for your dogs no matter what age or size.
Wood you choose anyone else?
