Bull Pizzle

Tendons | Nom-Nom-Nom!

Looking for a chew that doesn’t stink? Screen Shot 2014-02-28 at 11.08.25 AM

Well then, you are in LUCK! Available in Beef, Bison, Lamb and even Kangaroo, Tendons are a perfect substitute for the FUNKY smelling Bull Pizzle.

Although these high in Protein, low in fat chews are slow roasted to prolong nutrients and strengthen gnawing toughness, they are easily digestible (stomach safe). Commonly derived from the achilles tendon, these chews vary in different shapes and sizes (Hector Bite, Wishbone, Lamb Twizzler, Flossies etc.).  Given the opportunity to chew from different edges and angles, these fibrous chews are known to be great teeth pickers, scraping away built-up plaque, preventing bad oral bacteria (bad breath).

Quick Tip: looking for this chew to last a bit longer, try a thick tendon, like the Hector Bite. Looking for more teeth picking action? Get a Flossie or Spiral Tendon.  Although these tendons are Skinnier and unlikely to last as long, your dog will put in some teeth cleaning work by trying to gnaw at this chew from it’s many different twist and curves. 

A wonderful chew for dogs of all ages and sizes, check out a savory Bully Tendon at thaMUNCHbox.com! Hopefully soon, we will have more tendons to drool for.

MUNCH love!

Himalayan Chews | tha Dog Cheese!

“Himalayan Dog Chew comes from an ancient recipe of the people of the Himalayas.  In the mountains at more than 15,000 feet, it is made using traditional methods with Yak and Cow Milk and all natural products and no chemicals or preservatives {No additives – 100% Authentic}” 
Yak and Himalayan Dog Chew

Collected from rural community co-ops of the Himalayas in Eastern Nepal and the Mountains of West Bengal in India, Himalayan Dog Chews are made from Cows and Yaks raised in sheds, where no modern equipment or techniques are used in milking the animals.  Never introduced to hormones, prophylactic antibiotics, or other chemicals, these animals graze on open grasslands and are considered to be sacred life-givers.

Using a traditional method for human consumption, the Yak and Cow Milk is turned into hard cheese, which becomes a chew as hard as a regular bone, but softens after licking and/or gnawing for several minutes.  Recommended to keep in dry conditions, with an expiration date of approx. 4 years from the date of opening, these chews may give Antlers a run for their money.

Isn’t Milk, hence Cheese bad for dogs?

On the contrary, “positive reward-based obedience trainings often encourage the use of small pieces of cheese as motivators for behavior.”  Moreover, milk in its raw form is what’s difficult for dogs to digest. Yet, once it is made into cheese, the cooking process alters the protein making it more easily digestible… In actuality, most or all lactose is removed. The final product has little or no lactose to contribute towards the intollerance among dogs.

Worried about the salt and fat content?

The fat content is less than 1% of the whole product of Himalayan Dog Chew.

The amount of salt included in the creation of these chews is negligible. It is included by the people as a flavor enhancer, not for the flavor itself.

Wanna sample tha Dog Cheese? Check-out tha Yaky Puffs Popcorn + tha 6” Yaky Stick (thin layer of tha Dog Cheese wrapped around a Bull Pizzle) at thaMUNCHbox.com.  If you are looking to try the long lasting Himalayan Dog Chew in a MUNCHbox, we are hoping to get these in shortly, so please, keep checking tha website.

Green Tripe Sticks for Dogs | COMING SOON to tha MUNCHbox!

GGreen tripe is the unbleached, nutrient rich stomach lining of a grass-fed animal containing essential fatty acids and digestive juices important for your pet’s health.”  – PetKind  –

Made from All-Natural Beef Tripe, Green Tripe Sticks are preservative, additive and chemical free and contain essential fatty acids that are great for teeth, skin and coat.  These fully-digestible dog chews are safe and are a healthy alternative to rawhide.  Measuring approximately 5-7 inches in length, but varying in thickness, they are not only good for dogs of all life stages, but are also good for picky eaters and sensitive stomachs.

Although this chew is one of the healthiest and most nutritious, it may be wise to give as an outdoor treat, as the odor is not pleasant.

ESO’s | tha Esophagus Chew for Dogs!

Wizzler

An All-Natural, Single Ingredient Dog Chew, ESO’s are made from the ESOPHAGUS of a cow… tha food pipe!

High in Natural Chondroitin, these slender dehydrated chews are great for a dog’s joint health.  Approximately 6-7 inches in length and one inch wide, ESO’s are perfect for any size dog.  Similar to a Bull Pizzle, these chews have a smelly odor to them, which your pooch will enjoy (unfortunate for us), however, Eso’s are softer than a Bull Pizzle, so they probably won’t last as long.  As always, the chewing/gnawing action required prevents tarter buildup, promoting healthy teeth and gums.

To try an ESO, Check Out: thaMUNCHbox.com!

Note: As with any bone/chew or unfamiliar protein source, please MONITOR your dog and provide plenty of drinking water.

Happy Saturday,

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)!
