Explore alternative dog chews and give your pup a fun and exciting chewing experience. Your dog loves exploring beyond the beaten path, now you can do the same for their taste buds! Just as humans crave variety when it comes to their food selection, dogs can also get bored of having the same ol’ treat over (and over) again. It’s essential the pet parents switch up their dog’s snack routine. Doing so makes for better behaved pooches and easier training. Or perhaps you’ve yet to discover your dog’s favorite treat and are still in search of the ultimate reward for their good behavior.
Tripe and cow tail make for unique chewing experiences that are just as nutritious, delicious, and entertaining. Made from 100% free-range and grass-fed beef, Big Lu’s other dog treats bring high-quality protein in unique new textures. Made using less common parts of cattle, Big Lu’s alternative dog treats are wonderful for canines looking to spice things up.
For dogs who crave big-crunch more than anything, tripe is the way to go. Unlike bully sticks which are meant to withstand hours of gnawing, tripe breaks off into easily digestible chunks that dogs go nuts for. For pooches looking for a soft gnaw, cow tails are wonderful: easy on the teeth and gums, but chewy and long-lasting.
No need to settle when you’re searching for a snack that your dog will love. Big Lu makes the pursuit for the best dog treat effortless thanks to our curated selection of handmade, high-quality chews. No matter how big or small, young or old, or excitable your dag may be, we are confident that you and your four-legged best friend will love these uncommon dog treats.
What is Tripe? Is it Good for Dog Treats?Tripe is edible stomach lining, often referred to as beef stomach. Technically, tripe includes the stomach of any grazing animal and can include deer, sheep, and even giraffes. It is high in protein but low in fat and calories and one of the most nutritious parts of a cow. This lean treat is very healthy, perfect for overweight dogs or those that don’t have active lifestyles.
Big Lu offers two delicious tripe treat variations. Tripe Twist Bone puts ultra-crunchable protein in a fun bone-like shape. The knob-like ends of the twist are great fun and make for a fun multi-dimensional snack. Combining the best of both worlds, dogs love the rounded ends for an extra challenge. The Tripe Twist Bone is far more forgiving on the teeth and is also completely edible.
The classic Tripe Twist, is 10 crunchy inches of straightforward deliciousness. Ideal for dogs that love a big crunch but aren’t necessarily a fan of a chewing challenge. This dog treat is super satisfying and perfect of a quick snack when you and your four legged best friend are on the go. While not as long lasting as a bully stick, it’s a worthwhile tradeoff if you want a snack that you won’t have to worry about storing. Handy when only need to distract your dog for a short period of time.
Soft and Chewy Cow Tails
Cow tails are a great dog treat that are as enjoyable from the first bite to the very last. They start off with a soft crunch that transforms to become soft and chewable. These delicious gnaws are perfect for older dogs sensitive teeth, teething pups, or simply canines that aren’t aggressive chewers. Despite their soft nature, tails last a considerable amount of time and on average can withstand 30-40 minutes of chewing. These treats are available in 4 inches, 6 inches, and 10 inches – there’s a cow tail for dogs of all sizes!
When it comes to nutrition, cow tails are made from high quality single-source protein. Cow tails hare high in protein and low in fat (although not as low as tripe) making these a great treat for health-conscious pet owners. Being chewy and 100% digestible, cow tails are a wonderful alternative to rawhide chews that are natural and entertaining without any of the choking risk.
Cow tails are a perfect on-the-go treat when you and your pooch have the time to indulge in a luxurious chew. Unlike other chews that are skin or organ based, cow tails don’t have moist or mushy exteriors which make them a portable and mess-free treat option. Bring them to bars, on car rides, or when stopping by a friend’s house and don’t want to risk staining their carpet. Soothing and comforting, dogs of all ages will find themselves delightfully occupied wherever your adventures take the both of you.
