What are Bully Sticks?

As a dog parent, it’s only natural to have concerns about what your pup’s treats are made from. After all, we want the best for our furry friends! That’s why at Brutus & Barnaby, we take extra care in sourcing Bully Sticks of the highest quality and safety standards. And as much as we want to know if our dog’s food is naturally sourced and free of artificial ingredients, most of us can’t help but wonder about the smaller things like where on the animal the dog treats are made from.

What are Bully Sticks Made Of?

This may earn a few giggles or even a couple of double-takes, but we’re here to tell you that we’re not joking, and yes, you read that right when we say Bully Sticks are made from bull penises. 

It’s true Bully Sticks are made from bull penises, but don’t let that gross you out. Bull penises are a natural, healthy dog treat, and Bully Sticks provide an excellent source of protein that is both nutritious and delicious for your pup. It is a muscle that is full of nutritional benefits and helps give your dog a vigorous yet digestible chew to snack on.

We source only from the best, highest quality farms for our Brutus & Barnaby’s premium, all-natural Bully Sticks. These farms only have Free Range Cattle without using hormones or other potentially harmful chemicals that can be found in some products elsewhere.
