Alternative Rawhide

Dogs naturally tend to chew on things, and your dog is no different—especially when teething. If they aren’t provided with anything to chew on, they will most likely gnaw on things around the house, like a couch, your shoes, articles of clothing, kids’ toys and just about anything else with an enticing scent and texture. While numerous pet parents choose to give their canine a bone or antler to bite down on, it’s become more popular to use no-hide dog chews—and at Petco, we carry a diverse selection of rawhide-free bones.

When it comes to finding some of the best rawhide alternative bones for your pup, it can greatly depend on your dog’s preferences and nutritional needs. At Petco, we have several options with different flavors that your dog can sample under your supervision.

Take note of your pup’s chewing style and size. If they are a power chewer, some tougher no-hide dog chews won’t likely be suitable for them. Thicker bones may be too tough on dogs with sensitive teeth—but if your dog has powerful jaws and good dental health, more rigid bones can help scrape off plaque and maintain great teeth. Keep in mind that rawhide-free bones should be appropriate for your dog’s size—large dogs run the risk of choking on small treats, and small dogs can damage their jaws trying to bite large bones.
