As dog owners would agree, there is a feeling of euphoria shown by dogs every time they receive a bone to chew. However, it seems like bare bones are difficult to chew, taste-less, and void of nutritional elements. Have you wondered why dogs like bones so much?
We often forget to realize that evolution has gifted the canine family with tailor-made teeth to tear apart even the hardest of bones. Additionally, dogs derive mental stimulation and exercise for jaw muscles as part of chewing on bones. Also, not to mention that this activity is an effective technique to keep their teeth clean.
Clearly, bones provide far better benefits to your dog than any chew toy you can provide. Dogs get engaged with their piece of bone for several hours. There are also cases where they regularly work on the bone for days and bury it once they are done with the bone. Burying the bone is a canine version of refrigeration: a measure to store it safely and prevention from damage. Dogs always remember where they buried the bone for chewing it at a later point.
