Palette’s note: Grass-fed Moo! Odor Free Bully Sticks “Super Monster”

 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
the 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
products we offer through Yassy’s Gourmet Dog Kitchen.

 With “Palette’s Note” series, I would like to put Palette’s taste test videos.

 This time, “Grass-fed Moo! Odor Free Bully sticks “Super Monster”.”

Grass-fed Moo! Odor Free Bully Sticks Super Monster 6″..

Grass-fed Moo! Odor free bully sticks “Super Monster”
is the thickest of the bunch under the 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. Does your dog love bully sticks?

 Palette loves bully sticks, but don’t underestimate her. She actually is a tough judge. She
gave me nosed up, paws down on some of bully sticks I gave her to try out to decide whether we carry at Yassy’s Gourmet Dog Kitchen or not.

 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 to me, it is not stinky bully sticks.

 People smell
things differently but, if you compare this bully sticks and other brand of bully
sticks from pet supply store, you would find the difference in the 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 the 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.

 In the past, I personally purchased bully sticks of other brand,beef and buffalo ones,  to try out. It was awful. Both bully sticks were free range bully sticks, but the smell.. even before being chewed by Palette, it stunk!

 The smell was so offensive that I even did not try with Palette and tossed it to the outside trash bin. It was that bad.

 I think, in dog’s opinion, stinkier the better – case in point; dog loves stinky green tripe treats. However,it was just too strong smell and I did not like it.

 Although I generally do not give bully sticks daily,
I give her this bully sticks as occasional jackpot treat.

 She really loves these bully sticks, and she whines, and she gets so excited for this.

 What usually happen is that, she does something good, and she comes to claim these bully sticks and,I hand it to her saying “On the bed”.

 Then,she grabs it with her mouth, and trots to her doggy bed designated for her to use as “chew bed”; the bed placed outside the crate.

 The chew bed is used for her to chew her treats on, and she flops down on her chew bed and start chewing the bully stick treats.

 For her, these bully stick is more of lighter snack than long time consuming chew, but she loves them.

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

Which bully sticks are thinnest and thickest of the bunch?

 Among the Moo! line bully stick products, “Select” bully sticks thickness is in between “standard” and “supreme”.

 The thinnest of the bunch is “Junior 6″ ,12″” and “, next up is “Standard 12″“, then, “Select 6″,9″, 12″” then, “supreme 6″,12″“,then thickest one “super monster 6″,12″“.

 We carry both 6″ and 12″ Super Monster.

 If you were specifically looking for long lasting chew, then, 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

 Since she now got variety of Antlers:Regular Antlers, Antler with some velvet left on, Moose Antlers, Caribou Antlers etc..,
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.

 Often times, she decides to chew on Antlers while we are having dinner.

 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 in the long run for long lasting chews
for your dogs.

 That being said, not all Antlers offered for dogs on the market are the same. Some brands of Antlers are sanded and boxed up, and give dogs no variety of shapes with less aroma to start with.

 Some variety of Antlers are harder than others.. Even though some places that offer the Antlers makes people give impression that bigger,thicker,heavier the better, but it is not true.

 Choosing the right size,right variety of Antlers that matches with how your dogs chew are critical.

 Elk Antlers are hardest. The softest Antler is Deer Antler with some velvet on,which is softer than regular Deer Antlers. It does not last as long as regular Deer Antlers, but they are great as starter chew, plus the dogs get to strips off the fuzz called ” velvet”.

 The velvet is good for joint health due to glucosamine/chondroitin and it is a great chew with benefit that last a bit longer than regular bully sticks.

 Moose Antlers are unique in the way of its shape;some are flat,some are straight,and watching how Palette is chewing, it makes me feel that Moose Antler is probably tad softer than regular Antlers and what makes her not chewing as much at a time with Moose Antler is because of its flat shape.

 Now, the Caribou Antler is lighter in weight,lighter in density in average although some of them are a little dense,heavier than previous delivery from our supplier, compared to the regular Antlers.

 When it comes to which size to pick for Deer Antlers, pick the one that are recommended for your dog’s size not picking the largest,heaviest possible. The longer,heavier,thicker are not necessary be the better pick.

 At the same time, if your dog has never tried Antlers, just get one to see how your dog would chew them. If your dog’s chew style is to put their whole body weight and trying to break into half, rather than gnawing,then, the Antler is not a good chew for your dog.

 Anyway, I think these are great bully sticks for all sizes to enjoy. For the big dogs, it will be the light snack, and for the small to medium dogs, it will be a  good chew.

 If you would like to give quick bully sticks snack daily, I think “junior” are perfect fit to that purpose.
