Review and Giveaway: Best Bully Sticks

     Hi, all! Mom isn't feeling too well, so today's review will be short and sweet!

     A couple of weeks ago I was asked to do a review and giveaway for Best Bully Sticks (on Facebook here), an online company that sells a wide array of dog chews, including (shockingly) bully sticks, antlers, fish and other types of chews. I was sent some bully sticks, a medium sized bone and a split elk antler.

   I was very, very happy with the bully sticks! They're made from non-China sourced beef (New Zealand, or perhaps Brazil, I believe) that free range, and while they still have a distinctively nasty bully stick smell, it's not nearly as bad as others. There's also no messy residue like some types have, they were super tasty and didn't upset my stomach.
I'm still working through some moose antlers Mom got me, but the nibble I had of the elk antler was really yummy as well.
The bone... I wouldn't recommend. Mom gave it to me in my crate, where she could watch me and supervise, and within three minutes of chewing a large piece broke of. I'm a very careful chewer, and while I have extremely powerful jaws for being 10lbs, I'm not an aggressive chewer on bones. If I hadn't spit the splinter out, and Mom wasn't watching me, I could've choke! I would advise against the bones.

This angle makes me look fat. I'm not.

See? Ripped!

     On to the giveaway! Best Bully Sticks has generously offered one of my readers the prize of 25 6" odor free bully sticks, just for you! US residents only, sorry. To be entered in the giveaway, comment below and tell me where you like to sleep. You won't be entered if this info isn't provided. Also leave your email address so I can contact you if you win! This giveaway will run until Wednesday, and the winner will be notified by email. Good luck!

Kisses and Tail Wags,
Dachshund Nola


  1. Hi Nola
    They look like some pawesome treats apart from the bone which is disappointing. Milo & Jet

  2. We are bully stick addicts. Bailey sleeps in a round padded bed. Katy for the most part sleeps tucked in next to the bed on the floor. She hasn't really liked the idea of a bed.


  3. Hi Nola, Piper and Wrigley are spoiled, so they sleep in our bed every night... During the day, Piper sleeps on a chest by the window so he can keep guard. Wrigley likes to sleep under the bed while we're at work.

  4. We can't eat/chew anything like that. We, Frenchies chew anything to bits in 2 minutes. I choked twice. Good mom was there to pull it out of my throat.

  5. These look delisous! I love to sleep in the bed, since my parents only have a full size bed and I'm a fluffy dog I end up getting kicked out and have to so to the floor on my dog bed. But I try enjoying it was it lasts! :)

  6. Looks totally PAWsomely delicious!

    Earl is also ripped, bol.

    Lots of Woofs from Earl an I at Earl's World!

  7. Noooooo, poor UK dogs :)

  8. What a great give-away Nola! We love bully sticks too, butt fur some reason Mom never remembers to buy them for us. So, with that said, we'd love to enter. Muffin and I sleep in the big bed. We have 2 human's join us in there every night. Silly, they seem to think it's THEIR bed! Just don't know where they got that thought.

    Hope you're enjoying the sunny, hot weather today. Mommy said it's going to be brutal here this weekend.

    Love ya,
    Lily Belle

  9. Nola, looks like you're giving those bully sticks the howl of approval.

    XXXOOO Bella & Roxy

  10. Me and the chi's all like to sleep in my bed =) gothickornchic @ gmail . com

  11. The pups love bully sticks!

    Good luck to all the entrants :)

  12. My dog likes to sleep at the foot of my bed.

  13. I'm glad you like the bully sticks so much! Our vet won't let us feed them to our dogs (they are very aggressive chewers) so we can't enter the giveaway. Darn.

  14. Everyone but Bauer piles up in the human bed with us (even the cat). Bauer likes to sleep under the bed (he likes the cool floor). Everyone loves bully sticks!


  15. Great review! I hate it when bones splinter like that! Petal is a very careful chewer as well, but it still makes me very nervous. So thanks for the warning! Petal loves bully sticks a lot, but we've won bully sticks from one of your giveaways in the past, so we're going to sit this one out. Good luck to everyone else who has entered! :)

    P.S. Love that last picture!

  16. I love bully sticks too! I love to sleep on the big bed with Mom and Dad, preferably on top of Daddy's pillows or sometimes between them :0)

    Mom wanted to tell you that bully sticks were the only thing she could find that could stand up to Twix's chewing when she was younger. Anything else I bought was gone in seconds. I think those powerful jaws are a doxie trait. Have a great weekend!

  17. I like to sleep at the bottom of the stairway, awaiting for my sapien's descent!

  18. Best Bully sticks, but...aren't all bully sticks the best?! My favorite chews, for sure! At night I like to sleep tucked right up against my Momma. If Momma isn't available to tuck up against, my other favorite place is her poppa's big chair.
