Why Long-Lasting Dog Chews Are a Must-Have for Your Dog

  • 4 min read

Dogs are more than just pets; they are cherished members of our families. As responsible pet owners, we want to provide the best care possible. One essential aspect of caring for our furry friends is ensuring they have appropriate toys and chews. 

In this blog, we will explore the importance of long-lasting dog chews and how sustainability, durability, and ingredients play crucial roles in making these chews a must-have for your dog.

Sustainability: A responsible choice

In an era of growing environmental awareness, it's vital to consider the sustainability of the products we purchase, even when it comes to our pets. Long-lasting dog chews, when crafted with sustainability in mind, can make a world of difference.

Many traditional dog chews are made from synthetic materials or non-renewable resources, contributing to environmental degradation. The production and disposal of such products can have a significant carbon footprint. On the other hand, sustainable dog chews are often made from natural, biodegradable, or renewable materials.

You can opt forBetterBone's dog chews because they are a carbon-neutral product and company. Our packaging utilizes recycled FSC paper, non-toxic ink, and no plastics or glues. They also plant a tree for every order to more than offset all C02 produced in transportation and operations. Plus, they sustainably source their ingredients from certified sources, supporting sustainable European forestry. 


By choosing these options, you can ensure that your dog's favorite chew toys are not only long-lasting but also environmentally responsible.

Durability: Long-lasting fun for your dog

When it comes to dog chews, durability is paramount. Dogs are instinctive to chew, and a durable chew can keep them entertained and mentally stimulated for hours. However,not all chews are created equal in terms of durability. Low-quality chews can quickly break or wear down, posing a choking hazard or leading to frustration for your dog.

Long-lasting dog chews are designed to withstand the rigorous chewing habits of our canine companions. High-quality materials and thoughtful construction ensure these chews last much longer than their cheaper counterparts. This durability not only saves you money in the long run but also guarantees that your dog has a satisfying and safe chewing experience. 

When selecting a durable dog chew, consider the material and design. Look for chews with solid construction that can withstand the most determined chewers. Additionally,consider the size and shape of the chew to ensure it's suitable for your dog's breed and size, as this can impact its longevity.

Ingredients matter


The ingredients used in long-lasting dog chews play a vital role in ensuring the health and safety of your furry friend. It's essential to choose chews made from non-toxic and pet-safe materials. High-quality dog chews are typically free from harmful chemicals and additives that can pose health risks to your dog. 

One of the best options for a healthy and non-toxic chew isBetterBone Classic.It is crafted from all-natural, food-grade ingredients, designed to promote health and dental hygiene with a softer and more natural composition compared to nylon and other petroleum-based products. One common concern with dog chews is using artificial flavorings and colors, which can contain potentially harmful chemicals. In contrast, long-lasting chews made with natural ingredients are not only safer but also more appealing to dogs. 

Another critical aspect of ingredients is allergen considerations. Some dogs may have food sensitivities or allergies, so it's crucial to choose chews that are hypoallergenic and free from common allergens. Reading the ingredient list carefully and consulting with your veterinarian can help you make the best choice for your dog's unique dietary needs.


Safety is paramount when selecting dog chews, and high-quality, long-lasting chews are less likely to break into small pieces that could be a choking hazard. They also reduce the risk of intestinal blockages, which can occur if dogs ingest large chunks of chewed material.

Like BetterBone's dog chews, they are designed to flake, providing gentle abrasions that protect your dog's teeth-small flakes are safe to ingest in small quantities

In addition to ingredient safety, consider cleaning and maintaining the chew. Chews that are easy to clean and sanitize are more hygienic for your dog. This is particularly important if your dog is prone to dental issues, as keeping their chews clean can help maintain their oral health.
