Yöghund | tha Dog Ice Cream!

YWith Summer being just around the corner (Hopefully), I like the idea of being able to peel open a nourishing, Organic Blueburry Yöghund for Ballou to happily lick.  Although we like to think of this treat as “tha Dog Ice Cream,” it’s actually yogurt and a whole lot better and healthier for the overall well-being of our canine friends.

A recognized Power Food, Yogurt is High in Calcium and Protein, containing active bacteria that can act as a probiotic; good for a dog’s Digestive and Immune system. What makes Yöghund so Dog-Gone-Good is the fact that this specially made, frozen treat for dogs adds billions of beneficial live cultures, 6 additional strains per cup, to the current yogurt base.

Note: Typically, dogs are unable to easily digest lactose (diary products), however, Yogurt is an exception, containing lactose fighting bacteria

Recommended to give to your dog daily, below is a list of Conditions where Your dog might benefit from Yöghund:

A Bite into Dino Bones:

All though these 17″ long bones are kept away for tha larger breeds, we think these bones are a great present for any size dog.  Made from real USDA Approved beef these bones are baked with a natural, savory-smokey flavor and are meant to last, offering long lasting gnawing action… without splintering.  Made in the USA, these X-Large bones can assist with eliminating boredom and stress relief/frustration, by teaching positive chewing behavior.  Reducing plaque and tarter buildup on teeth, as well as, relieving teething pain and toughening gums, these Dino’s are a great source of calcium and the soft marrow inside is a potent source of protein and emollients for GOOD health and Shiny Coats.

V for Venison Hiccups!

We thought long and hard about making this post about VEGGIES, but instead, have decided to show off the CRUNCHY Venison Hiccups!

VH318

Made from pure Venison Gullet, these satisfying chews maybe small, but provide a punch of Protein and “good-for-your-bones Chondroitin (healthy joint function).”  A snack that will keep your dog content between meals, this Hiccup is made for the aggressive chewer, in the size of a medium to large dog.  Way better than a Synthetic/Plastic Bone, these Gullets make for fantastic dental chews,  cleaning those Canine Fangs by Fighting Tarter and Preventing Plaque Buildup.

Approximately 4 inches in length and 2 inches in width, Venison Hiccups contain NO Artificial Preservatives/Chemicals and are USA MADE.

Wanna Try this Gamey Chew, Check-Out thaMUNCHbox.com.

MUNCH love!

Bull Pizzles |tha Exclusive Dog Chew!

BIf you don’t already know, Bull Pizzles (a.k.a Bully Sticks), are basically the private part (to put it nicely), of a bull/steer cow.

Made of pure fibrous muscle (a by-product), these chews are low in cholesterol + fat, yet, high in protein. Once cleaned and stretched, bull pizzles are twisted into some interesting and functional sizes, shapes and forms, varying slightly in thickness and color.

Not containing any chemicals, additives or hormones, these chews are great for all life stages (puppies, adults, seniors) and are easy to digest (great alternative to Rawhide).  Depending on the size of a Bull Pizzle and how aggressive a chewer your dog is, they can provide hours of chewing/gnawing entertainment, which is perfect for teeth cleaning; reducing tarter.  Our suggestion, the thicker and bigger the pizzle, the longer lasting it will be.

BullyPretzel

tha Bully Pretzels are Great for Puppies!

If you are worried these chews are too fattening (high in calories), then just limit the amount given to your dog (remember, its a treat).  We like to compare these bad boys to Snicker’s Bars.  We personally wouldn’t eat 1 everyday, but once a week or even two weeks, isn’t that bad…right?

Quick Note: Treats should make up no more than 10 percent of your dog daily calories –

Additionally, similar to the Antlers, if your worried about the protein content upsetting your dog’s stomach, monitor the intake.  Allow your dog to chew between 1-2 inches and then take it away (Quick Note: Bull Pizzles can be freezed in a ziplock bag to keep them fresh).  If all is well, continue this process, but increase the intake each time (like giving sugar to your kids for the first time, at some point you start to know when enough, is enough).

Quick Note: Bully Bites are a good place to start (top picture), as they already come in 1-2 inch size sticks –

Afraid of being exposed to E-Coli or Salmonella Bacteria? Simply put, WASH YOUR HANDS (as with any raw meat)!
