While our dog enjoys unbleached rawhide rolls (made in the USA) on occasion, they're not the easiest thing for him to digest. While talking to Oliver at North Woods Ranch, he mentioned pork skin was a much better alternative. I've written about using North Wood's pork skin for cracklin's and making homemade stock, so it only seemed natural that a food I'd be willing to eat myself would also be a good choice for my dog.

As any pet owner will admit, they know their own pet best. If your dog is the type to swallow large hunks of rawhide, pork skin will not slow their aggressive chewing. The best course of action is to keep an eye on your pet to make sure they're not eating too much/too large of pieces in their animal excitement for something extra delicious.
For one package of skin, I ended up with nine "sticks," plus 3-4 broken pieces from my initial attempt to braid the pork strips.
