How should I store goat horns?
Goat horns can be stored in a resealable bag for freshness or an air-tight container in a cool, dry place.
What size is appropriate for my dog?
Here are our recommendations:
- Small – for breeds such as Cocker Spaniel, French Bulldog, Jack Russell Terrier, Shih Tzu, Pug, Boston Terrier.
- Medium – for breeds such as Border Collie, Australian Shepherd, Beagle, Corgi.
- Large Chews – for breeds such as Golden Retriever, Samoyed, Pitbull, German Shepherd, Standard Poodle, Labrador Retriever.
If your doggo meets these guidelines, great. But if you're still a bit unsure, we suggest a medium size chew to start with. Any treat that is wider than the width of your doggo’s face is also a safe bet size-wise for your dog to get chewy with.
How should I feed my dog goat horns?
We suggest giving them our goat treats for up to 30 minutes a day, supervised and removing any small pieces.
Are goat horns stinky?
Goat Horns are renowned for being a little bit stinky. Whole goat horns tend to be a little less smelly than their split counterparts. We recommend cleaning your Goat Horn in hot water and drying thoroughly after your dog chews it. It’s a great way to starve off bacteria, keeping the Goat Horn fresh and reducing the smell significantly.
Can I give my puppy a goat horn?
Puppies should steer clear from goat horns until they’ve graduated to adult teeth. The tough consistency of goat horns means they might risk breaking the more delicate baby teeth before those teeth are ready to come out naturally.
How are goat horns sourced and made?
Our goat horns come from local Victorian sources who farm goats for human consumption. We step in and take the byproducts left over (namely, goat horns and goat trotters). Our horns are especially unique as during the sterilisation process, we remove the live membrane inside. While the marrow in a horn is delicious and nutritious, it often requires the complicated addition of preservatives and packaging to keep it fresh.
After that the goat horns are hand-cut and locally packaged in Melbourne using step-by-step techniques. We keep it natural and it keep it local.
