Palette’s note: Free Range Moo! Braided Bully sticks

 When you pick up treats for your
dogs, what would you look at? Ingredients? Fancy looking
pictures?Description of the products?

 Have you ever wondered if you
could actually see how other dogs are enjoying them? Not pictures,but in
video so that you can actually HEAR and feel the treats’ textures?

 Some of you may have already
recognized I have been putting up treats’ video on youtube so that
people can hear the sound,see Palette in action and get more detail on

 With “Palette’s Note” series,I like to put taste test videos. This time, “Free Range Moo! Braided bully sticks 6″.

 Free Range Moo! Braided bully sticks
is Moo! Odor Free line products and they are made in Argentina. It is made from
beef that received no antibiotic or growth hormone in their life.

 Our K9 executive chef “Palette” the Corgi, loves this bully sticks, and she gets so excited and chew on them very enthusiastically with very wet nose and some drool bubbles around her mouth.

 Many dogs adore bully sticks. Palette is one
of them, but don’t underestimate her. She actually is a tough judge. She
gave me nosed up,paws down on some of bully sticks I got to try out.

 Paws down bully sticks did not make it to the store to offer others.
After all, she is k9 executive chef who control the quality of menu to
be served to others, along side with me. And only Palette’s approved
menu is served to others.

 What I like about this bully sticks, and
what separate this bully sticks from other bully sticks is that, it does
not emit stinky odor when dogs chew on these.

 I can sit right next to
our dog while she is working on her bully sticks. Before giving this
bully sticks to our dog as taste test, I sniffed at it, and I feel it has a little smell
to it but much much less smell and not stinky to my nose.

 People smell
things differently but, if you compare this bully sticks and other bully
sticks from pet supply store, you would find the difference in smell.
Especially when your dogs start chewing on it. Some brands’ bully sticks stink up the room so badly.

 If you have read the previous entry titled “Long lasting chew/recreational bones for dogs“, you would already know that what makes the bully sticks less odor.

 For those, who haven’t, not all bully sticks are made same way. Some are made vertical, some are made horizontal. The one made flat tend to have stronger smell to it. Reason why is that, by hanging and making
the bully sticks vertical, the fluid in the bully sticks drain more and
the longer baked bully sticks has less odor than the one made flat.

 Although I do not give bully sticks daily,
I give her this bully sticks as occasional jackpot treat when we play
“Find it” game – when I give really good jackpot treat like this one,
she usually have to find her toy I hide in our house rather than
sniffing out the treat itself.

 More challenging for her to find the toy,
thus I give her higher valued treats to her. She is moderate chewer,
and in average, with other brand’s braided bully sticks, she spend about 5-15 minutes or so on 6″one, but with this, she spent about 20-30 minutes.

 How long it would last will be
depending on each dog’s jaw strength.

 If you were looking for long lasting chew, I would recommend Deer Antlers.
With our Corgi “Palette”- moderate chewer, with L size Deer Antler, it
is with her for more than one year with the same Antler.

 She religiously
spend about 15-20 min 2 sessions per day but still gnawing the same
one. Antlers are more economical overall and one Antler lasts much
longer. Since she now got 3 kinds of Antlers:Regular Antlers, Antler with some velvet left on, and Antler bottom,
the time she spend on regular one is less than before (she seems to
gnaw one by one alternating among the three Antlers) , but she enjoys
her gnawing time.

 No matter how long/thick the bully stick is, one bully
stick will be gone much faster than Deer Antlers would. Therefore, Deer Antlers will be more economical for long lasting chews for your dogs.

 She worked on this bully sticks for
about a couple of minutes or so and then, she gave me a pause for picture.

** Smize; smile with eyes

Now, is serious chew time..nom,nom,nom…

Mom,please leave my nose alone…

I know you want to take a picture of wet nose

Hmm…. Pawsome tweats!

 If you ask me what shapes of bully sticks I would like to give to Palette, it might surprise you but, I would say I prefer the traditional “straight” bully sticks just like Free Range Moo! Supreme bully sticks.

 Reason why is that, I like the concept of the manufacturer trying to offer various shapes of bully sticks, but after all, traditional straight one can last lot longer than braided one for example,and it does not get broken into pieces.

 To make the braided bully sticks, manufacturers use 3 skinny bully sticks to make the braid. Then, yes, a first couple of minutes dogs can chew tougher chew but then, when they chew down to about half length of the bully sticks, it gets broken into 3 thin wavy bully sticks.

separated braided bully sticks piece..

 When Palette chew 6″ braided bully sticks, right about 3″,4″ length left, it gets broken into 3 separate wavy bully sticks.

 It is nice that she can enjoy two shapes of bully sticks in one bully sticks, but once it gets separated, she can chew up the piece pretty fast.

 This is the reason why I prefer to give one size up braided bully sticks (in her case, 12″ one) more often than 6″ braided bully sticks for Palette. With 12″ braided bully sticks, she can spend more time on braided bully sticks.

 With Free Range Brazilian braided bully sticks 12″, she spent 2-3 days. You will see the difference.

Now is wavy bully sticks fun time!


Chewing on the separated piece of braided bully sticks..

I can enjoy wavy bully sticks with one braided bully sticks!

Hmm… Wavy fun! *Smize*

bully sticks is one of my favorite because it does not stink up the
room, and this is also Palette’s favorite as you can see in videos and

 This is like  piled high bacon strips for Palette, and she enjoy every inch of it.

 Please note that due to natural products,
thickness of the bully sticks can vary.
