Hog Hide Roll
Coming from 100% pasture-raised hogs, these dehydrated hog hide rolls are highly digestible and humanely raised to support regenerative agriculture.
Hog hide contains more fat than other hides, so these chews can have more oil which dogs go bonkers for!
Great chew for small and medium chewers!
- Extra oil gets picky dogs excited about chew time!
- Cleans teeth and gums!
On some rolls, you might see a USDA stamp of approval. These stamps are added using edible vegetable dye and are totally safe for your pup to consume.
Want to save your dog from dental disease, horrible breath, and teeth cleaning bills? Then give your dog a chew for around 10 minutes every day!
Similar to humans, canine dental issues can impact the overall health of your pet! Not only is gnawing and chewing a great mental and physical exercise, but it cleans teeth and strengthens gums! Daily chewing is just like brushing teeth for humans!
Limit supervised chewing to 15-20 minutes per session. (For softer chews, such as lamb or goat, limit to 10-15 minutes per session.) Most dogs feel fully satisfied (endorphins get released in the brain) after short sessions of back-of-the-jaw gnawing. After chewing, store the hide out of sight and give again when you need the pup to have some down time!
For Picky Pups!
Although we see most dogs take to the hides right away, sometimes they just don’t know how to get started.
There are a couple things you can do to try and get them going, and once they start, they typically go back to it without any assistance.
Option 1: A Little Something
Put a little coconut oil or peanut butter on an edge. This will get them licking, which should turn into heavy duty chewing!
Option 2: Hide Some Treats
Take some treats (like our trainers) and place 1-2 pieces inside the roll. This gives the pup a “target” zone and they will instinctively know where to start working to try and access the treat. Once started, they should just end up enjoying the chewing!
Option 3: Soak An Edge
Soak one side in about 1/4in of water. This will soften up an edge, making it a more appealing chew, and gives the dog an easier starting point.
Option 4: Play
Use the hide as a toy with games like fetch, keep-away, and tug-of-war. The goal is to get their mouth making contact with the hide as much as possible, which will turn into chewing as they get familiar with the hide.
Safety & Storage
All chewing should be supervised, especially when your dog is trying something for the first time. When giving chews that have dehydrated bone, you want to make sure the dog has the jaw strength and patience to chew/crush the bones before consuming. If a sharp edge or inappropriate chewing behavior is ever discovered, we recommend removing the chew for safety reasons.
Keep in a cool/dry place. Our dehydrated products are free of preservatives and pesticides, and although it is very uncommon, bugs and mold (from added moisture) are your two culprits for causing trouble.
For chews and hides, especially after a chewing session, avoid sealing them in plastic or containers that can trap moisture. Allow the chew to air out and store in a cool/dry place.
For longer storage, the freezer can be a great way to keep our products fresh, and away from bugs and pest that might show interest.
