All dogs have an inherent need to chew that begins when they first grow teeth and continues through old age. Chewing is essential for dogs for several reasons: it relieves boredom, it satisfies an urge, and it is essential for good tooth/gum health. Your dog is going to chew, so it is always best to teach him the proper things to chew and prevent his access to things he should not have. Otherwise, he will develop negative chewing habits, and the financial and emotional costs could be great.

For several years Acme Canine has suggested dog owners not provide rawhide and other animal parts to their dogs.  Now we have found a food alternative for the heavy chewer.  SmartBones.

SmartBones’ outer layer is made of wholesome, flavorsome vegetables including corn, sweet potatoes, peas and carrots.  The inner layer of real is real chicken.  No rawhide.

In addition, SmartBones are 99% digestible.

We have tested SmartBones with several Acme dogs.  Not only did they love the product, they didn’t choke on the product or have loose stools afterwards.
