Air dired chews for dogs have been produced to be a natural alternative to rawhide chews.  Rawhide chews have many hidden dangers, choking hazzard and trace chemicals.  Natural chews have nothing added.  The drying process simply removes the water content, dehydration.

Not all air dried chews are equal!  If you see mixed chew boxes that contain ‘white’ chews.  Make a note.  They are bleached!  Chicken Feet and Pig Snouts are not naturally white.  Bleached products are bleached for a reason!  Sadly there are a lot of retailers making claims about natural chews and the origin of their products is questionable.  Our Puppy Chew Packs introduce the young dog to absolutely no question the most natural smells and taste they wont want to chew anything else again.  The only process should be drying and that is all our chews go through.  Nothing added, no processing. 

Foods can be dehydrated by various means: the sun, a conventional oven, an electric dehydrator, a microwave oven (for herbs only), air drying and solar drying.  Dog Chews are dried in large ovens over an extended amount of time to ensure all the flavours are not lost.  There is no substitute for a natural chew.  Manufacturered chews are processed and will contain flavours and chemicals.

We’re often asked by breeders which chews are best for their breed.  We’re also told by breeders which chews are best for specific breeds.  The truth is whilst breeders have a preference every dog is different. And we’re left with an old saying – humans chose for their dogs.  Obviously some dogs will literally eat anything put in front of them.  It’s quite normal for dogs to have different favourite chews and rotate.  Variety is the spice of life.  NO we don’t add any spices :)  When its a Boodle Natural Dog Treat it will be safe and 100% natural, no nasties, nothing added. 

Why are Air Dried Treats Safe for Puppy Dogs

The process of making air dried chews for dogs is simply dehydration.  Crafting air-dried chews for our furry friends is a wonderful blend of nature’s wisdom and modern craftsmanship. It’s like taking a delicious secret and turning it into a treat that dogs adore. Imagine carefully selecting the finest ingredients, like juicy cuts of meat and mouthwatering fruits, to create something truly special for our four-legged companions.

The magic begins with a gentle touch – slowly removing moisture from these chosen ingredients. This step not only locks in the amazing flavors but also ensures that the treats stay fresh and tasty for longer. It’s like creating a flavorful masterpiece that’s also shelf-stable, so our pups can enjoy them whenever they want.

Picture this: as time goes by, the dehydrators work their magic. The vibrant colors of the ingredients become more concentrated, and the textures evolve from soft to wonderfully chewy. It’s like watching a work of art come to life as each treat transforms into something that’s both visually appealing and incredibly satisfying for our dogs.

But it’s more than just a technical process. The people behind these treats are like passionate chefs, pouring their love for animals into every step. They understand the strong bond between dogs and their human families, and they pour that understanding into every treat they create. It’s as if they’re crafting each chew with the same care and attention that a homemade meal receives.

In the end, the process of making air-dried chews is a blend of tradition and innovation. It’s about creating something that speaks to a dog’s natural instincts while also ensuring their health and happiness. From selecting the best ingredients to patiently waiting for the perfect texture, every step is a labor of love that shows just how much we care for our furry companions. So the next time your dog enjoys one of these treats, remember the journey that went into making it—a journey filled with care, dedication, and a deep love for dogs.
