COVID-19 and Dogs

COVID-19 and Dogs

It seems almost everything has been impacted by COVID-19 in the United States. And, the impact on pet households is no different. While demand for dogs across the US has soared, so has demand for all things dog related.  With increased demand, prices have also increased. Will dog adoption remain high while prices for dog food and chews return to normal once the cases of COVID-19 continue to drop and the number of vaccinated people in the US continues to increase? We sure hope so.

Dog Chews for Aggressive Chewers

Dog Chews for Aggressive Chewers

Having been in the dog chew business for 3 decades, it's a rare day that we don't get the question, "What's the best chew for an aggressive chewer?" It seems the vast majority of dog owners have dogs that are aggressive chewers. But, is that really possible? We think not.

An aggressive chewer is any dog that chews with such enthusiasm, energy and vigor that he breaks off large pieces or virtually swallows the object he's chewing whole. Of course, chewing behavior exists on a continuum with most dogs falling somewhere in the middle range. Humans often mistakenly label their dogs aggressive chewers because their dogs consume chews and treats too quickly. It's understandable people want the chew they just paid $13 for to last longer than 20 minutes. But is it reasonable? Probably not. But why?
