Goat Horns

Our goat horns are from NZ’s very own goats.

The main composition of  a horn is keratin, the same material that makes up hair and fingernails. The core of a horn is, however, made of bone.
Used for defense, horns are extremely advantageous in the wild.
Most people know that dogs like to chew.  Chewing is a natural behavior for all dogs.  It allows them to explore the world around them, exercise their jaws, and even clean their teeth.  Most of all, it engages them mentally and alleviates boredom.

However, when dogs lack the proper items to chew, it can lead to destructive chewing and other behavioural problems.  Providing plenty of  chews for your dog is one way to allow your dog to fulfill its natural desire to gnaw on things. Supplying your dog with tasty, edible chews is another way to fulfill your dog’s need to chew while offering a tasty treat.

Having said this always supervise your dog while feeding chews.

We have four sizes of goat horns

  • Small 50 to 100g
  • Medium 100 to 150g
  • Large 150 – 200g
  • XL 200g plus

Goat Horns are long lasting chews.

Our Goat Horns are like doggo gold. The Keratin proteins inside add strength and shine to coats and scrape away tartar build-up by a massive 70%.

Easy to love and hard on the chew to fight dental disease and keep your dog’s smile selfie-ready.

Baby we go(a)t your boredom busted, this doggo-and-earth friendly treat can last all night!

A bit of trivia for you….

The average adult dog has about a third more teeth than his human counterpart. Adult dogs have 42 permanent teeth compared to a measly 32 average human teeth (not counting any wisdom teeth. Those are “bonus.”). Puppies possess 28 baby teeth while human babies will have 20 deciduous or “baby” teeth.

Puppies begin losing baby teeth around 12 to 16 weeks of age.  By four months of age, almost all of a pup’s deciduous teeth have been shed and many of the permanent teeth have already erupted and are in place.

The largest tooth in a dog’s mouth is the upper fourth premolar also known as the carnassial tooth.

Its special shape and tooth surface is designed to help shear, crush and hold. This is why you see dogs grasp chew toys with the side of their mouth, chomping feverishly. This is also why you have to replace so many chew toys. Next time blame the carnassial teeth instead of your dog!
