We all know that dogs love to chew chair legs, the remote control or your slippers. Rawhide for dogs would seem to be the answer. Those puppy teeth need to be eased out, for an older dog, the tartar is kept at bay and the mouth is helped to stay healthy.
Chewing is natural for a dog and often relieves anxiety. So it would seem to be a good idea to let them have something that is meant to be chewed. Most of us think of rawhide as associated with the great outdoors, the American cattle ranchers and cowboys but the modern term might have more to it than meets the eye.
