What benefits do raw dog bones and chews provide?
As well as high-quality nutrition, consuming food is also about enjoyment. Dogs tend to be hunters and are carnivores by nature; they get great enjoyment from experiencing natural, raw bones and chews. Chewing and gnawing are behaviours that naturally release endorphins and gives your dog a satisfying feeling which is great for their mental health. Our in-house canine nutritionists carefully select which ingredients are used for our raw dog bones and chews, so that they are packed with supplementary vitamins, minerals and nutrients. Remember, you should always supervise your dog with raw bones and chews. Benefits of providing healthy, natural, raw chews and raw bones for dogs include:
Ability to explore new textures and sensations
Dogs get great pleasure from gaining different sensory experiences from their food, and a varied diet ensures that dogs remain interested in their meals and treats. As well as being greatly stimulating, dogs purely enjoy the challenges of ripping meat off of a bone, working for the marrow inside and the different textures of specialty dog treats and chews like turkey necks, beef tripe sticks or antler bars.
They are helpful aids in training
Raw bones for dogs and natural, raw chews are fantastic tools to keep your dog motivated during training, without encouraging unnecessary overfeeding or weight gain. Teaching a dog the standard commands (sit, down, stay etc.) can be a daunting task, however our raw dog bones and chews are great for positively reinforcing desired behaviour. Dogs can be very food driven and so really thrive by receiving a high value food as a reward.
Can help tame unwanted chewing behaviour
Raw bones and chews can be an effective way to satisfy dogs’, in particular puppies’, natural, instinctive desire to chew, in a safe and healthy way. Not only will they receive the mental stimulation and endorphin release that chewing and gnawing provides, but they will also get a boost of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that complement their core, raw diet. It will also encourage your dog to stick to only chewing dedicated items such as raw dog bones and chews, instead of personal items which can cause a hazard.
Supports oral strength and health
Anatomically, dogs are well equipped for eating meat from the bone. Whilst this is usually more of a treat than an everyday occurrence, it is a great idea provide raw bones for dogs and raw chews occasionally. Canine teeth are designed to tear off meat from bone and their strong jaw is able to crunch through bone. Nutriment's range of raw dog bones and treats help to promote healthier teeth and gums in dogs, whether you opt for a tasty duck neck or a recreational marrow bone. Our marrow bones are for gnawing on, rather than breaking pieces off, so if you have a stronger jawed dog then lamb ribs or turkey necks are a great alternative.
