Centerville, TN (PRWEB) June 20, 2006
In what could eventually become material for the late night comedy circuit, a company in Tennessee is offering dog owners an alternative for pets that typically enjoy chewing rawhides and pig ears. Penile snacks derived from bulls have been increasing in popularity and there is no indication demand will be slowing anytime soon.
“It’s difficult to keep them on the shelves,” contends Wayne Bosak, owner and operator of Bullysticks.com, a distributor of the taurine treats.
“As word of mouth spreads and more dogs give them a try, people realize how enjoyable they are for their pets,” he added.
The product is considered an innovative delicacy by many in the pet care industry. For others, however, the thought of feeding bull privates to their beloved animals is a tough idea to swallow.
“It’s a psychological barrier that some occasionally have,” says Bosak. “But our sticks are 100% natural, healthy and easily digestible. They’re low in fat and even help reduce tartar build-up.”
The Bully Sticks, which come from South America, go through a fairly simplified manufacturing process. They are sterilized, dried and then smoked for flavor. The company offers the product in various shapes and sizes, one of which includes the “Jumbo Bully Stick.”
The items are a unique addition to an already thriving U.S. pet food market, which is estimated to be at $10 billion. BullySticks.com has shipped approximately five million inches to date and based on recent feedback from customers, brisk sales are expected to continue.
“Dog owners always want the best for their pets and we offer a nice alternative to the other chew products currently on the market,” stated Bosak.
Bullysticks.com, a subsidiary of Knine Kountry Distributing, also offers a wide range of other natural pet food products including chicken treats, cow ears and rawhides. The company has recently moved into a new 10,000 square foot warehouse facility to accommodate recent growth.
