Best chews for dogs
Munching on chews is among dogs’ favorite pastimes. They can sit for hours just chewing away. But, did you know that not all chews are created equal? Of course, you want to provide your pupper with only the best. The right kind of chew can be super beneficial for your dog’s teeth by scraping away tartar, so finding a high-quality chew that not only brings your dog happiness, but also helps their health, is a total win-win! Read on to find out more about the best chews for your doggo.
4 of the best types of chewables
1. Bully Sticks
a. These chews have gained popularity in recent years. You can easily find them at your local grocery store or pet supply store. But what exactly is a bully stick? They are hard treats consisting of bull protein, high protein beef free from artificial chemicals, additives and preservatives. In addition, they are a good source of amino acids, which support your pup’s brain, body and coat. Unlike some chews, these tend to be more digestible for your dog and tend not to splinter
2. Himalayan Yaki Cheese Chews
a. Yaki cheese chews are all-natural treats with the main ingredients of yak and cow’s milk, yet they are actually lactose free and high in protein. Your pup will love the flavor! Plus, you can even microwave small pieces of yaki chews to transform them into puffed treats for your pupper. Can you believe his eyes when he sees those come out!!
3. Nylabone Edible Chews
a. If you want to have a diverse variety of chews on hand, then look no further than Nylabone Edible Chews. Unlike regular Nylabone products, these edible chews are meant to be digested by your dogs. They are made with natural ingredients and come in a wide variety of shapes, styles and flavors, including turkey apple and bacon.

a. Antlers can serve as a safe chewing option for your doggo as they do not break apart as they are chewed down. They are some of the longest lasting chews on the market and are a fantastic option for cleaning your pup’s teeth as they chew and, like bully sticks, they tend not to splinter. Plus, they contain tons of vitamins and minerals. Be careful though – low quality antlers can lead to pain broken teeth and infection.
P.S. Giving your pup a chew might give you a chance to snap that Insta picture you’ve been trying to get while they’re finally sitting still ;) !
