Why do bully sticks smell?
Perhaps you've already tried bully pizzles for your pooch, and maybe you found it a bit too smelly for your home.
There's no question about it, any dog owner who has the privilege of feeding their pooch a bully stick will know how incredibly stinky they can get! The odor emitted by bully sticks is often enough to deter pet owners from purchasing these delicious treats for their dogs. Nevertheless, there is one way we can combat this problem, the answer, odor-free bully sticks!
Yes, you heard it right! There is such a thing!
In most pet stores, you can usually expect to find two types of bully sticks for dogs - a smelly one (natural scent) or an odor-free stick.
Now, you might be wondering, can they be free from odor? Well, the good news is, yes they can!
Odor-free bully sticks are the same as a regular bully stick. The only main difference is that an odor-free bully stick will be dried for a longer period of time. Because of the extended drying process, odor-free bully sticks will naturally have a lower moisture content, and so they will emit less odor when chewed by Fido!
Summary: Bully sticks smell because of the retained moisture from not being dried long enough.
