Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Just got Kylah her first bully stick after reading that a lot of people use them. She hasn't stopped chewing since I gave it to her!
Just curious, how long on average does it take your dog to get through one of these?

Same here. I gave Layla one yesterday. It was on the thinner side but it was also 12 inches and she got through it in about an hour. Gave me some extra time to catch up on work, though, haha.

I've been hesitant to give her bully sticks for a while now because last time she had one a couple months ago, she swallowed the last inch whole and I think it caused her to throw up her breakfast the next day. Luckily that was the worst thing that happened, since she was fine afterward and passed the bully stick with no issue. So far no problems with the one we gave her yesterday, either.

Kai loves bully sticks and we've been giving them to her since she was younger. It's tough to say how long it takes her to finish them because she buries them throughout the apartment for later use. She will chew on one for a while, bury it and revisit it later on. If she commits to chewing one, I'd estimate about an hour.

Id like to try ordering them from bestbully, I paid 8.99 for a 12 in one at the pet store, which seemed steep to me.

That IS expensive for one 12-inch bully stick! Was it made from kobe beef? Razz

I just ordered for the first time from bestbully the other day and paid about $25 for seven bully sticks, two of which were braids that went for about $3.50 to $4 each. Not a bad deal! If you have a Pet Supplies Plus in your area, they have some pretty decent prices for bully sticks as well.

yeah, we have upgrades to the 36inch ones- seem to last a day and half or so, and they have to have to be the ones that have an odor, or she will not touch em.

Yeah I guess it was a true chews natural beef bully stick from petsmart. I wasn't sure what I was really looking for so I just grabbed the one that was natural and made in the USA. But it still seems like I way overpaid.

Good call on looking for bully sticks made in the USA. But, yes, $8.99 is still a lot for one bully stick, even if it is made in the U.S.! Redbarn has a big line of bully sticks that are all made in the U.S. but I think even they don't cost that much.
