To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The sticks weren't consistant, looked like they were trying to hit a weight quota, 1 was completely incompariably smaller to the 2 appropriate sized sticks and 1 I would say was just accepting. The inconsistency for the sticks was a bit disappointing. If it was based on weight I would understand but this was quantity. To end this review on a good note, my dog loved them.
My dog LOVED the first bag of these we ordered, so I ordered them again. The second bag the bully sticks were much darker. I don't know what the drying / cooking process is for this product or if it is even possible for them to be overcooked or burnt, but my dog only ate the lighter colored parts of one stick and wouldn't touch the rest. Going to try another brand and hope for more consistency in product.
My 30 lb dog chewed through a 12" stick in about 20 minutes. With other brands I've tried in the past, my dog would take at least a few hours to chew through the same length. I will not buy this again.
Smell was OK, stick seemed a bit stale as I tried to bend it, it make a snap (but it didn't actually snap off -- just a loud snap, which I never have heard before in a bully stick... I like to bend them because then they're easier for my dog to hold when they're in a boomerang shape).
My puppy is a bully stick addict, but he doesn't like at all this brand! Unfortunately, he never touched these bully sticks... They don't have a bad smell and they are in a decent thickness, but my dog really doesn't like the taste.
You know how it smells when your dog’s anal glands need to be expressed? That is how these bully sticks smell when my dogs chew on them. The dogs love them, but man...they staaaank like rotten fish. I will not be buying them again for that reason.
My 2 labs loved the sticks and I love that they're not full of harmful chemicals. Unfortunately, one dog ate it within an hour. For the price, one hour of chewing per stick isn't worth it. I was really hoping for at least a good 4 hours of chewing.
While they are 12” bully sticks, they do not last at all. Even a 7 month only puppy can finish one stick in 20 minutes. It caused more anxiety about having to take it away then it did for the 20 minutes of quiet time.
