21. Can I leave my Dog with No-Hides unattended? Do they need to be given under supervision?

Here are some important facts and information on providing the safest environment for your beloved best friends to enjoy their chews of any kind and No-Hides.

  • Keep an eye out for the odd dog who decides to “unroll” the No-Hide. If your dog does unroll it, and just rips small pieces off to consume, there shouldn’t be a problem. If the dog is trying to swallow large, flat sections of No-Hide, be sure your dog is not gulping those pieces.
  • Be aware that dogs don’t actually have the physical capability to “chew” (as we humans think of it – i.e., flat molars that move back and forth and grind food down into smaller pieces). Dogs, because they don’t have flat teeth and don’t have jaws that work from side to side, simply gnaw (scrape the sides of larger items wearing that item down gradually) or, move food to their back, sharp teeth (not flat like ours), mash the piece once or twice, and then suck it down. So again, when choosing the best-sized chew, larger than their mouth is more appropriate and thus safer for the dog.
  • Remember that anything that goes in a dog’s mouth can become a choking hazard. That’s why it is incredibly important to supervise your dog’s anytime you are giving treats or chews of any kind – be it No-Hide, real bones, bully sticks, pig’s ears, Greenies, even cookies. If you are not able to supervise, then we encourage you to wait and give them their chew when you can be present!
  • Dogs who are known “gulpers” should be closely watched when they get a chew and if they don’t improve their “chew IQ”, they may need to forego chews.
