Red face I just realized what a bully stick is....

yes I know... I should have known... but I didn't.

I always just thought they were dried tendons..... and seeing as has how I never actually bought them before.... it just never clicked.

Well, at my training facility they sell stuff...collars, leads, training aids, treats... bully sticks.... Muffin was sniffing the box of the bully sticks, so I was like, "oh you want one, ok we'll get you one." Turns out he really likes them.... so I buy a big bag of 24 from the feed store....

then I read the "ingredients"

.....

If you want tendons, you need to buy the treats that are called "tendon", not the ones called "bully sticks".

Xpaeanx,

You are not the only one in the dark. I not only am unenlightened about what bully sticks are. I thought they must be raw hide. But I have an additional missing link here.


What is steer pizzle?
