Benebone is a bacon-flavored dog chew that will please dogs for hours. The ergonomic design was clearly created with dogs in mind, as these bones are curved to allow dogs to prop up one end and get a satisfying chew going. The deep grooves also allow puppies to get a good bite and enjoy the scent and flavor of this tasty treat.

Now I’m full-on obsessed with dogs and everything related to dogs. I’ve purchased every dog accessory you can think of, so I decided to collect my thoughts about them on this site.
