Transparently sourced from 100% pasture-raised, grass-fed cattle, these naturally dried hides are the complete hide. They are NOT stripped, processed with toxic chemicals, or dyed like many industrially made rawhides.

The BIG Difference:
Industrial rawhide, with the use of toxic chemicals, only uses a portion of the hide after the top portion has been removed for tanning. This allows dogs to chew and consume industrial rawhide too quickly, opening the door to blockages and choking concerns.

Our Beef Hide Chips are less durable than the Beef Hide Rolls, but they do require more mental energy to chew due to their odd shape! These long-lasting chews provide a healthy chewing option for even the most aggressive of chewers!

How to Give:
Limit supervised chewing to around 15-20 minutes per session. Most dogs feel fully satisfied (endorphins get released in the brain) after short sessions of back-of-the-jaw gnawing. After chewing, store the hide out-of-sight and give again when you need the pup to have some downtime!

Ingredients: 100% Beef Hide
Sourcing: White Oak Pastures in Bluffton, GA

Sizing update: The 6" Roll and 6x6 Chip have been discontinued to help create more inventory for the larger rolls and chips.

We are proud to work with family farms committed to raising animals free of added hormones, antibiotics, chemicals, and pesticides.

Chewing is one of the best mental and physical activities a dog can participate in! Natural hide is very high in collagen, a type of protein which is important for holding bones and skin tissue in place.

Teeth
Want to save your dog from dental disease, horrible breath, and teeth cleaning bills? Then give your dog a chew for 15 min every day!

Similar to humans, canine dental issues can impact the overall health of your pet! Not only is gnawing and chewing a great mental and physical exercise, but it cleans teeth and strengthens gums! Daily chewing is just like brushing teeth for humans!

Chewing
Limit chewing to around 15-20 minutes per session. Most dogs feel fully satisfied (endorphins get released in the brain) after short sessions of back-of-the-jaw gnawing. After chewing, store the hide out of sight and give again when you need the pup to have some down time!

Sourcing
Everything we make is connected to family farms. When you purchase from Farm Hounds, you will always know the exact farm we worked with to make that product.

We maintain the connection to the farm through the entire process by placing the farm name on every product.

Availability
We choose to source from working farms which means animals may not mature on our timetable. At times, this means we do not have access to the products we want or need. However, we continue to identify small, true working farms that we can partner with to help minimize any shortages.

Although we see most dogs take to the hides right away, sometimes they just don’t know how to get started.

There are a couple things you can do to try and get them going, and once they start, they typically go back to it without any assistance.

Option 1: A Little Something
Put a little coconut oil or peanut butter on an edge. This will get them licking, which should turn into heavy duty chewing!

Option 2: Hide Some Treats
Take some treats (like our beef organ!) and place 1-2 pieces inside the roll. This gives the pup a “target” zone and they will instinctively know where to start working to try and access the treat. Once started, they should just end up enjoying the chewing!

Option 3: Soak An Edge
Soak one side in about 1/4in of water. This will soften up an edge, making it a more appealing chew, and gives the dog an easier starting point.

Option 4: Play
Use the hide as a toy with games like fetch, keep-away, and tug-of-war. The goal is to get their mouth making contact with the hide as much as possible, which will turn into chewing as they get familiar with the hide.

Safety
All chewing should be supervised, especially when your dog is trying something for the first time. When giving any type of rawhide, you want to make sure your dog is chewing appropriately. As durable and digestible as our rawhides are, if your pup is strong enough to rip large pieces free and swallow them, we recommend removing the chew for safety reasons.

Storage
Keep in a cool/dry place. Our dehydrated products are free of preservatives and pesticides, and although it is very uncommon, bugs and mold (from added moisture) are your two culprits for causing trouble.

For chews and hides, especially after a chewing session, avoid sealing them in plastic or containers that can trap moisture. Allow the chew to air out and store in a cool/dry place.

For longer storage, the freezer can be a great way to keep our products fresh, and away from bugs and pests that might show interest.

    Our favorite!

    We have tried many Farm Hounds hides and chews and this one lasts my 65 pound power chewer pittie by far the longest! I love that I can provide him chews that are minimally processed. This chip is easily digestible and lasts my dog for multiple 20 minute chew sessions. Additionally, Farm Hounds’ customer service is great and a pleasure to work with. Highly recommend!

    Incredible Product

    I was desperate to find something healthy and durable for my 8 month old jack russell. He always has to stay busy which is hard when you work and live in NYC so the next best thing for him is chews. These last my puppy so long, tire him out, and don't upset his stomach. They're good for him and I don't have to purchase products daily. One can last him a week or longer.

    AMAZING

    This chew/rawhide is absolutely GENIUS!

    I love that this product is a physical and mental stimulating experience! On top of that, with the square shape, this rawhide lasts x10 than anything else. My 20lb dox mix is a MEGA chewer, he can eat a beef pizzle stick in 30 mins. I gave him this beef chip a week ago and it looks barely chewed on. Literal magic. Oh and let’s not forget how affordably priced these are! Ugh I’m obsessed and so thankful I found a company/product that provides the highest quality snacccsss for my fur child 🐾💖

    Something that they should include in the description is the smell of all the rawhides when being actively chewed, only have the lightest scent(and it’s not a bad smell). No more foul smelling bully/pizzle sticks! I’ve given these as gifts to a couple friends and family members and they all say the same thing!

    My two dogs seem to like the rolled rawhide over the chip, but they will chew on the chip and they do seem to enjoy it.

    I’m glad I got both to try both last good while and so far no digestive issues compared to rawhides at stores.
