Do you need a healthy boredom buster for your dog? We love winter at my house. Even those Arctic blast days are kind of fun, but when there are too many subzero days in a row, we start to get bored and need something to do.
My GBGV Life received a KIWI Half Venison Shank from Chewy.com to review as a member of the Chewy Influencer Program. My GBGV Life did not receive any monetary compensation for this review.

As with most folks these days, boredom tends to lead to online shopping. I did just that at Chewy.com. Did you know they even have a daily deals page? They have so many products for all your pets. What could be better than a nice bone to chew on to keep me busy? Chewing is something I love to do when I’m bored, and it is healthy for my teeth. Remember I posted about how important dental health is for dogs last week. My new chew arrived as always in just a couple of days. You have to love the fast shipping Chewy.com provides!
I’m the family food snob, and not everything that we order is something I will sink my teeth into. This time, I am quite pleased with my selection of a Ziwi Peak Half Venison Shank. It is smaller than I expected, but it is still big enough for me.
A girl needs to be cautious with any new arrivals, so I sniff over the product carefully before we even open it up.
Mom unwrapped the shank and I gave it a try. I do like it! It is super tasty, but not at all messy. A few facts about the Venison shanks:
- They are 100% sourced from ethical and sustainable New Zealand farms with proteins that are free-range and grass-fed.
- The shanks include natural nutrients and marrow, and are wrapped in a beef esophagus.
- Chewing helps to improve your dog’s dental hygiene and decreases bad breath.
- Shanks are air dried to retain their nutrients in a form that is long-lasting.
- All-natural chews contain no artificial coloring, flavoring or preservatives.
Once I start chewing on my shank, I don’t want to stop. We have a lot of chews at our house. Bailie and I share all the time. Mom can take chews away from us, but this time I growled when Mom wanted to take the shank. It was time to do some drop training, which we did, and then I was fine with giving it up. It is so tasty, though, I really don’t ever want to give it up!
My overall opinion is pretty evident in my super long tongue position. Mom gave it to Bailie to try, and she also loves it. Now it is a chew we only have when one of us is home. I think we need to order a second one so we can both enjoy a venison shank.
Why not get your paws on one for your dog. Winter is long, and I bet your pup would love a good venison shank chew on a cold day! If not, Chewy.com also has a big toy sale going on right now with 20% off. A boredom buster for your dog will be appreciated, and keep that pup out of trouble too!
