This wiki has been updated 22 times since it was first published in October of 2016. Whether you have a pup who is in the teething stage or an older pooch who never grew out of gnawing on everything, these bully sticks give Fido something to chew on other than your slippers. They can also clean a dog's teeth by scraping away plaque, and are a high-protein snack. Please make sure pets don't swallow large pieces of these, and always wash your hands thoroughly after touching them. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

August 21, 2019:

Bully sticks can offer a number of benefits to your pup and your household when you get the best ones, which is what we've rounded up. If you're tired of your dog treating your personal belongings like chew toys, all of our selections should provide some good distraction from that type of behavior, but a few stand out in particular. The complex and twisted shape of Redbarn Pet Products Braided will put Fido to work. If you need to try hard to keep a dog interested in something other than your shoes, the Pawstruck Variety Pack will be useful since it boasts several shapes that will challenge a pet in different ways.

Since, with any meat product, there can be concern about the quality of the source and the manufacturing process, we made sure our picks received high marks in these areas. Nature Gnaws Choosy Paws are made in FDA-approved facilities, and Sancho and Lola's Closet Pizzles get their meat solely from the North America. Also, Jack's Premium Smoked Beef come from grass-fed cows, and Best Bully Treats Supreme are always free of hormones.

Knowing that every pet-loving household could have a variety of dogs in all sorts of sizes and with different preferences, we looked for some bully sticks that would stand out from the crowd, too. Jack & Pup Baby are made from cow bladder instead of the traditional pizzle, which may entice pooches looking for a new flavor. Best Bully Treats Supreme and the Pawstruck Variety Pack come in different sizes, so you can find one for most breeds in your home. And Best For My Pet Treats tends to be gentle on the stomachs of pups who are otherwise sensitive to bully sticks.

Special Honors

Bones & Chews 6-Inch Dog Treats Free of chemicals or preservatives and boasting just one ingredient, these are pure and simple chews you can give your pet for a good protein boost. You can buy a pack of six, 35, or even just a single stick. Fido should enjoy the natural flavor of these, and you'll appreciate that they clean his grill of plaque and tartar.

Chew Me Large Braided Several leading dog sites and television shows have featured these chews, and for good reason. They're impressively-thick (with some pups needing a few hours to get through one), low in fat, and come from a small, family-owned company. Plus, they're made in the USA and can stand up to even the most powerful gnawers.
