Presidential Pooches Through History

In light of the election being less than a month away, I thought it prudent to look at the history of some of the most beloved inhabitants of the White House – the Presidential Dogs. While living the life of luxury in DC has its perks (lots of space to run around in and dog treats that are checked by the Secret Service), there is a certain dignity and air of sophistication that a Presidential Pooch must project. Here’s a look back at the First Dogs since our country began.

George Washington

As our first President, George Washington was also the first to have a First Pet. While his dogs didn’t get to live in the White House, one can assume they had plenty of time to run around. George Washington had seven dogs – three Staghounds (Sweet Lips, Scentwell, and Vulcan), and four Black and Tan Coonhounds (Taster, Tipler, Tipsy, and Drunkard). It’s safe to assume that his Coonhounds liked to get into the Presidential liquor.

John Adams

Continuing the tradition of the First Dog, John Adams only had two dogs while President, though they were the first to stay in the White House. While the breeds have been lost to time, we’re sure that he loved his two dogs (Juno and Satan) despite their naming.

Thomas Jefferson

We know that Thomas Jefferson had two Briards, and while one’s name has been lost to time, the other, Buzzy, probably got to enjoy his time at Monticello.

James Monroe

Conscientious Dog Treat and Chew Picks

Conscientious Dog Treat and Chew Picks

When we started our company a few years ago we knew that we wanted to make sure we were confident and happy knowing that everything we offered for sale was something that we could be proud in and something that was healthy and rewarding for dogs.  We have to be honest it is tempting to sell popular dog treats like rawhide, or stuff packed with wheat and gluten; but we have learned over time that this is just simply not healthy and refuse to offer it.  Pretty packaging does not take the place of good nutrition, dog treats with ingredients you can’t understand or pronounce are probably not healthy, and treats shaped like little steaks that smell like plastic just don’t cut it!  Our commitment to you is to continue to scour the earth to find the unique, natural and healthy dog treats and chews like bully sticks you have come to know us for.

We must say that in the beginning we were “casual” dog owners and did not understand that it was important to really look at what we were feeding our dogs, how often they eat, how often they excersise etc.; but as our knowledge of the pet industry has grown, so has our knowledge of our own pet’s health.  We hope that you find our selection as rewarding as we do as we routinely use all of the products which we sell.

Simply Put, We promise to:

  • Offer healthy unique treats chews and other items that will not harm your dog
  • We will keep our everyday prices as low as possible to make our selection available and accessible to the greatest number of owners and dogs possible
  • We will continue to bring on new manufacturers that are committed to healthy pets and enriching the lives of our dogs
  • We will listen to you and your feedback and adapt accordingly
  • We will price match anyone on the internet or in a retail store for any of the products we sell (as long as they are of comparable quality) to make sure we stay competitive

Please follow the blog, over the next couple of weeks we will be launching not only several new chews and treats that are unique and extremely healthy, but we will also be adding TWO new categories of products and a supplement/food that is simply amazing!

As always, thank you for your continued patronage and support and if you find something you feel like should be here please let us know!!!

10 Inch Bully Stick Blowout

10 Inch Bully Stick Blowout

For the month of October (the tenth month) we have decided to have a 10″ super sale.  We have gotten a tremendous deal on 10″ bully sticks that are small to medium in size and have decided to pass these savings along to you!  These bully sticks are only being sold in bags of 100 units and at just over a $1 a piece are the best deal going on the internet or anywhere else for that matter.

The bully sticks are low odor and vary in size.  This is a great idea to purchase and share with friends or just stock up and freeze to use at a later time.  Because this is a one time offer these will not be around too long and will not be back…. so make sure to take advantage of this sale.

Also, make sure to check out our new lines of treats like Nature Nosh, Dog Bones, and Plato Salmon Oil.

Greatest American Dog Laurie and Andrew Get Bully Sticks

Greatest American Dog Laurie and Andrew

I thought that this was a great picture of Laurie and Andrew… what do all of you think?  We were actually contacted by them today to take us up on offer of bully sticks and other treats as consolation prizes for the runner ups!!

I must say that we were a bit starstruck but in the end every dog whether on TV or not deserves high quality all natural dog chews.  I just think that it was great to have a role model like Laurie make it as far as she did in the competition.  If you can tell from our writings we thought that Laurie and Andrew were the best team out there and we love Laurie’s positive training technique.

Her training website is Pup-n-Iron there you can find a wealth of knowledge on dog training and even sign up for the newsletter.

Congrats again…Laurie and Andrew for a job well done!  We honored our word and sent Andrew some awesome dog treats today!!!

Fun Dog Videos

We ran across this video on You Tube which I think is showing “Tillman” from Greatest American Dog but not 100% sure.  We thought that it was entertaining and really cool so we decided to share.  Isn’t it amazing what dogs can do?  We wonder whether this was trained behavior or if the dog just picked up on this by watching skateboarders over time. Either way, it is great to see what dog’s are capable of!   If any of you have videos that you would like to share please email them to….

Also, we are working on continuing to expand our product line and need your help; please let us know what additional tools, dog treats , chews, etc… you would like to see added to the site.

Knotted Bully Stick Bone

Knotted Bully Stick Bone

This is a new and extremely long lasting dog bone.  We took a bully stick piece that was about 18″ in length and knotted it at both ends.  This becomes a “monster chew” , and will definitely last a while.  Each finished bone is between 7-9″ in length and the knots on each end are 3″ wide by 3″ tall.  Not only is this sure to be a hit, because it is a bully stick, but for all of you parents who want a little extra free time, this is a great option.   Just like our other bully sticks, these are from free range, grass fed bulls and have a very low odor.  They are sure to be a hit, plus are a little extra exciting because it will definitely be a challenge for your pooch to unwind the knot.

Please make sure to check out our ever growing selection of all natural dog chews and treats!

Best Bully Sticks Customers Speak Out !

Recent Feedback from our customers.  Thank you Trish P and Marjory for taking the time out to write these are your gracious testimony and compliments.  We love the opportunity to share the best all natural dog chews and treats with all of you!

Wow! Best bully sticks is by far the best thing I have found for my puppy! I have a VERY energetic 13 week old brittany who has the attention span of a knat, except when it comes to best bully sticks! So far she has tried the beef tracheas and the 6 inch bully sticks and she loves them! They keep her busy when I don’t have time to keep an eye on her. No tummy upsets from either of these products, fast shipping, and GREAT prices! You have a lifelong customer!

-Trish P

WOW!  My order arrived so quickly and my 2 Giant Schnauzers are just loving the tracheas.  No more supplements for them, now they get their glucosamine in the best way possible and the joy they show when I give them one is my feedback from my best friends.
We’re planning our next order now.

Beef Trachea Spirals

Beef Trachea Spirals

We are proud to announce yet another Best Bully Sticks exclusive product, the Spiral Beef Trachea.  This is a new take on an old favorite and is sure to be enjoyed by small and large dogs alike!  This is a 10″ long piece of trachea that has been cut to have a spiral shape like our curly bully sticks.

Beef Trachea is an excellent dog chew because it aids in dogs joint health.  Glucosamine and Chondroitin are naturally occuring in the cartilage of the beef trachea.  This dog chew should be easier for smaller dogs to eat because they can get a better grip on it.

Please make sure to keep reading the blog often and let us know if there are any other products you would like to see!

Designer Dogs The Pros and Cons

The growing trend in dog ownership is the purchase or adoption of designer dogs – those dogs that have been deliberately bred from two purebred dogs with an expected result.  While I would never discourage the adoption of any dog, designer or otherwise, there are certain pros and cons that come with giving a home to a Designer Dog.




The pros to giving a home to a Designer Dog (besides the obvious good karma of giving a home to a dog in need) typically relate to the health of the dog in question.  While many purebred dogs are prone to health problems related to the lack of genetic difference between one generation and the next, Designer Dogs, much like mutts, bypass many of the health problems that purebreds are known for.  The difference between the Designer Dog and the mutt is that while a mutts heritage isn’t know, Designer Dogs often have papers stating what their heritage is, including the breeds and history of both parents.


Along with avoiding many of the health issues associated with purebred dogs, Designer Dogs are often bred to combine favored traits of two breeds, such as a lack of shedding and the size of one dog with the playful nature and affection of another.  The hope with Designer Dogs is that the penchant that one of the breeds may have for chewing on your shoes will be countered by the penchant the other breed has for eating dog treats from your hands.




The cons to bringing home any dog of mixed parentage is that you never really know what to expect.  You can breed two of the most affectionate, loving dogs, and at the end of the day you might still get a Designer Dog that sees your slippers and thinks chew toy.  Temperament and size are very hard to judge with Designer Dogs, especially those that come from two dogs of largely varying sizes (you might end up with a Labrador/Dachshund mix that is either the size of the Dachshund, the Labrador, or somewhere in the middle).  Poodle Designer Dogs are known to exhibit many of the Poodle’s often aggressive nature, in spite of being bred with a more docile breed.  While giving you hope having a Boxer mixed with a Chihuahua will curb its need to chew on things better than giving it bully sticks, at the end of the day, you can’t know what you will get from the dog until you’ve spent time with it and tried to train it.


Don’t Go in With Any Expectations


When bringing home your Designer Dog, remember not to have any expectations.  You may bring home the most perfect puppy that will be easy to train, have all the best traits of both their breeds, and be a ray of sunshine in you and your family’s lives.  Or you may bring home a little terror that will drive you all insane…just like any other puppy.  Don’t assume that the new trend in Designer Dogs means that you don’t have to put in the time to properly train your dog.  Good genes are no replacement for proper training and love.

Bully Stick Frisbee

Bully Stick Frisbee

Wow, is all we can really say about this product.  We are the only place on the net or in stores to find this new and exciting interactive dog chew.  These bully stick rings are a full 7″ in internal diameter.  These rings can be used for tug-o-war or playing a game of catch with your dogs.  The only problem with these rings is that once you throw it to your dog it will likely not be coming back.

This is the start of some interactive dog chews that we plan on releasing in the second half of 2008 which will all be exclusive items to Best Bully Sticks.  This all started with one of our customers suggesting we manufacture some items that owners and their dogs could use together.  This is an ideal product for being able to enjoy spending time with your dog and their favorite treat/chew.

Please stay up to date with our blog as this is where all of our new product releases will be announced.  As always, thank you for your business and be sure to check out our ever growing list of dog chews and treats.
