You can give your dog a great treat with a beef pizzle, a bully stick is just the thing. It is a very popular treat for the dog, but at the same time also a chewing tool and is suitable for cleaning teeth.

So what is a bully sticks anyway?

Well this treat is suitable for any dog, it is the dried skin of the bovine penis. This skin is naturally cleaned, stretched and partially twisted. This creates a firm surface, which is then dried. The result is long straps that are tough and your dog can chew for a long time until the treat can be eaten. The color is dark brown or black and unfortunately it has a very unpleasant smell for humans, but your dog loves this smell. You can buy the bullwhip for the dog in every pet shop and also in the internet you can find quite interesting offers. Since you can divide these "bones" only very heavily, they are offered in handy pieces. A really good idea.
