Stanley - The definition of a GREAT DOG!

Meet Stanley, the Wonder Dog!

He was both a wonder dog and a GREAT DOG. Stanley weighed about 78 LBS and lived 12 days shy of his 17th birthday. That was 2013 and I still miss this special boy like crazy.

GREAT DOG - StanleyHe was a gentle, sweet, super smart boy. As my first dog ever, he also holds a very special, unique place in my heart. As my first dog, I couldn't have asked for anything more. Not being familiar with day-to-day life with a dog, in the beginning, he kept me on my toes. I remember being so proud of him when he was doing something similar to Michael Jackson's "moonwalk" but on his behind. A good friend of mine was nice enough to tell me that it wasn't a special talent he had but rather something was bothering his bum! Oh the things you learn. (Stanley was 16 in the photo - looking through a glass door wanting to come inside).

He did actually have several very special talents though. About a week after he came home with me (he was only about 3 months old), I learned his first one. I kept hearing my doorbell ring and would check both my front and back door. No one was ever there - I was certain some kids were door bell ditching me. After about a week and not a kid in sight, it occurred to me that Stanley was always at the back door after the bell rang. Somehow he figured out that if he rang the bell when he wanted to come inside, I'd open the door. He consistently rang the bell up until he got too old to jump up (a very sad time). When that happened, he'd bark a few times instead. During his door bell ringing heyday, many people visited just to experience his doorbell ringing firsthand! He was such a GREAT DOG!

Who doesn't love getting to know a GREAT DOG? If you want to share a story and photo(s) of your GREAT DOG, please send details about your GREAT DOG, photos and/or video to customerservice@greatdogco.com. We'd love to share them with the world and add some happiness to our readers'/customers' day.

GREAT DOG's Elk Antlers Outlast Competitors!

GREAT DOG's Naturally Shed Elk Antlers Outlast Competitors - Just Ask Two of Our Four Legged Customers!

GREAT DOG's naturally shed, Grade A Elk Antler Chews are hand selected each year from Wyoming, Colorado, Montana, Idaho and Oregon. Because our antlers are super fresh and naturally shed they are large, dense and have a beautiful brown patina which results in a much longer lasting chew than our competitors. Just ask JJ (Black Lab) and Bergen (Elkhound). They've been sharing the antler below for 2 years which still shows little wear according to their human, Julie! Julie tells us that JJ and Bergen typically chew other bones and bone like chew toys up in record time.

Another New GREAT DOG Product

GREAT DOG Beef Twists (Bully Sticks)!

GREAT DOG is pleased to introduce GREAT DOG Beef Twists (Bully Sticks). What's makes them so great you ask? For starters, they are two US Sourced Steer Pizzle twisted together for one big taste explosion! Secondly, they have no offensive odor. Third, they are sourced from Midwest family farms and then cooked in a human grade, federally inspected facility. And, last but not least, they are processed without irradiation, additives and/or preservatives! How can anyone or any dog not love that?

How do these differ from GREAT DOG Twisted Pizzle you ask? In a couple of different ways actually. First, the Beef Twists are longer: 7 and 14" vs 6 and 12" in length. Secondly, GREAT DOG Beef Twists have a higher moisture content than GREAT DOG Twisted Pizzle. What this means is that it will require more gnawing and chewing to break down. Thirdly, we have left some fat tailings on the Beef Twists because that's what dog's like; and they need some fat in their diets to keep their coats healthy. So, picking the right product for you is simply a matter of preference! Nonetheless, we know you and your dogs will absolutely love GREAT DOG Beef Twists! Why not try some today?

GREAT DOG Beef Twists (Bully Sticks) are sold in bags as follows:

  • 5, 7" pieces, and
  • 6, 14" pieces
