To Satisfy our Dog’s Needs.
Did you know chewing has always been a way for dogs to calm their nerves, relax, and keep busy? When our four-legged friends chew on something, hormones like dopamine and serotonin – which are responsible for happiness and joy – are released. Providing our companions with something to chew on means we allow them to satisfy their natural desire. Most of us no longer live in the countryside, where our dogs can perform the duties for which they were naturally bred. So, we have to find ways to help our companions – who can easily get overstimulated and underchallenged in our busy cities and towns – live their best lives in modern times.
Because it's what a dog needs.
Cars honking, people shouting, lights blinking, and crowds shoving – our dogs are exposed to countless uncontrollable stimuli when they are out and about with us. This environment is not meant for them. They get stressed quickly, but that can be hard to recognize. As their owners, we can look for certain warning signs: frequent panting, hyperactivity, excessive reactivity, overreaction, yawning, shaking, impatience, whining, and excessive grooming. These reactions can also occur when a dog feels under-challenged or is left alone at home. To remedy those situations, natural chew sticks provide dogs with instant stress relief.
A Natural way to relieve stress.
It is important to always have something dogs can chew on readily available, especially when we know that he or she will be exposed to stressful situations. In the long-term, chewing on natural sticks means our dog’s physical health is improved, since constant stress can cause a weakened immune system.
