2 Tips About Rawhide

Rawhide is one of the more popular treats made for dogs. It comes in all shapes and sizes. Dogs love it whether it's natural or specially basted. It shares a similarity to leather, but engages a dog in its primal instincts. However, it posts some dangers.

1. A dog may confuse them with your shoes. Shoes or other objects that are made of leather can be confused with rawhide, so an owner must be vigilant in distinguishing the two items.

2. For dogs who love to chew, this is a treat that will keep them busy. Yet all that chewing will make a dog thirsty. If a dog drinks too much water afterwards, the rawhide can expand in their digestive tract causing bloating and irritation. Therefore, it's important to monitor your dog's water intake after giving it one of these treats.

That's my tips. What's yours?

Thank you all for stopping in.
