Pet Business: Tell us about Wholesome Hide. How did the company get started? What inspired you to get into the dog chews business? Prior to that, Steve was the plant manager for Harper Leather, which was the largest rawhide dog chew manufacturer in the world. He has a total of 26 years experience producing rawhide chews. Steve has a background in sheet metal and equipment repair and maintenance.
Manufacturing dog chews borrows from that experience in that it is taking flat sheets of material and forming them into useful products.
PB: How does your approach set you apart from other rawhide companies? Bosserman: We put a strong emphasis on producing the highest quality products using USA-sourced beef hide and other ingredients. One hundred percent of our products are made and sourced in the USA. That gives our customers peace of mind knowing that Wholesome Hide rawhide treats are not overly processed and are healthier for dogs.
Rawhide manufacturing is not a heavily regulated industry. Why is this an important feature to you? Why should it be important to retailers? Bosserman: We can say that our products are made in the USA all we want. At some point, it just becomes another marketing claim. We wanted an independent third party to make that claim for us.
Made in USA Certified audits our purchase and production records and talks to our suppliers to make sure our claims are accurate. PB: What are some of the newest and most popular products in the Wholesome Hide family? What makes these products stand out in the marketplace? Bosserman: We have 26 years of rawhide manufacturing experience. These treats consist of ground rawhide that is extruded into shapes and dried. The unique shapes and flavor combinations are going over very well at the retail level.
PB: Beyond offering retailers a lineup of high-quality products, how does Wholesome Hide help retailers drive sales in the rawhide category? What types of sales and marketing support do you offer? Bosserman: We advertise in trade publications, such as Pet Business , to promote the uniqueness of our product. We also do some consumer advertising to build brand awareness at the user level. We offer promotions on new product introductions and trade show specials and offer retailers point-of-purchase materials, shelf-talkers and signage.
PB: What is your opinion of the rawhide category overall? Bosserman: One of the biggest challenges, aside from sourcing issues, is the ongoing perception that rawhide is somehow bad for dogs.
An online search for rawhide will reveal many conflicting claims. Some are downright false or may apply to imported rawhide chews, but not to ours. They are not made using arsenic or formaldehyde. We produce our chews with fresh, thick rawhide. We do not add any preservatives, whitening agents or chemicals to add weight to the product, just fresh USA beefhide.
Rawhide is also naturally high in protein and low in calories. The ingredients list of those products will typically show several chemicals added as flavor enhancers and preservatives. Wholesome Hide essentially has one ingredient—fresh USA beef hide. PB: What does the future hold for Wholesome Hide and the rawhide category overall? Bosserman: We feel that the category will grow as more consumers move away from imported treats, rawhide in particular. We also see that consumers seem to be embracing the fact that rawhide can be a good and healthy treat for their dogs.

Effective date : Year of fee payment : 4. This invention describes a collagen fiber reconstituted rawhide useful in the production of pet chews, and a method for making the same. Beginning materials include animal skins with hair, depilated limed splits and leftovers from the manufacture of rawhide pet chews. The materials are pretreated, ground, subjected to acid treatment to swell and separate the collagen fibers that comprise the animal hide, further ground into pulp, vacuum filtered, mixed with a dehydration agent that chemically shrinks the expanded fibers, drained, formed and dried into sheet and finally exposed to a cross-linking agent to increase the adhesive strength of the end product. Edible materials, including meats, may be added to the solution prior to draining, to enhance the nutritional value and palatability of the final product, and the reconstituted rawhide sheets may be bleached for appearance. The described method produces rawhide pet chews at lower cost, and of greater diversity and utility, compared with current methods of production.SEE VIDEO BY TOPIC: Rawhide - Our Wyoming
Rawhide is a hide or animal skin that has not been exposed to tanning. It is similar to parchment , much lighter in color than leather made by traditional vegetable tanning. The skin from buffalo , deer , elk or cattle from which most rawhide originates is prepared by removing all fur , meat and fat. The hide is then usually stretched over a frame before being dried. The resulting material is hard and translucent. It can be shaped by rewetting and forming before being allowed to thoroughly re-dry. It can be rendered more pliable by 'working', i. It may also be oiled or greased for a degree of waterproofing. It is often used for objects such as whips , drumheads or lampshades , and more recently, chew toys for dogs. It is thought to be more durable than leather, especially in items suffering abrasion during use, and its hardness and its shapability render it more suitable than leather for some items.

By: Rodney Habib -. How can one of the most popular chew sticks on the planet be so dangerous for your pets, you ask? I mean, most dogs chew on rawhide for hours on end, and not only does it keep them busy, but they seem to last forever. Aside from the horror stories circulating all over social media these days, of pets needing emergency surgery after consuming rawhide, the majority of pet parents today, especially the newbies, believe that this chew is some sort of dried up meat stick. A rawhide stick is not the by-product of the beef industry nor is it made of dehydrated meat. So, how does this leather, which is conveniently rolled up into pretty shapes, actually get made into those rawhide chews? Follow along my friends and I will enlighten you on how this hide travels through a leathery process where it transforms from hide to a not-so beautiful, colorful, chew stick. Here is a paraphrased tutorial that was explained by the whole dog journal several years back:.
