Ear Chews for Dogs: Everything you need to know!

Listen up, dog lovers!

There is a special treat that’s capturing the attention of pups everywhere...

Say, “Who wants an ear chew?” and your dog’s ears are bound to stand tall. Chances are, their tail wags excitedly and their mouth drools with anticipation too! That’s why Only One Treats carries a line of chomp-worthy ear chews. 

So, let’s uncover the secret behind why dogs adore ear chews and the woof-tastic health benefits they bring. 

Why Dogs Love Ear Chews 

Headlining the canine treat world, ear chews are about far more than just mouthwatering taste. In fact, dogs have been munching on ears for…well…forever. For thousands of years, dogs have instinctively satisfied their chewing cravings with a timeless delight – chewing on animal ears.

Ears chews are made of:

Each is 100% natural and packed with different protein sources.

Nowadays, modern dogs enjoy gnawing on ear chews, just like their wolf ancestors did.

Read on to discover why!


First, dogs have an innate need to chew and ear chews provides a safe and satisfying outlet for this behaviour. Chomping on ear chews helps promote healthy teeth and gums, reduces plaque buildup and supports dental hygiene.

Mental Stimulation

Another reason why dogs love ear chews? Two words: mental stimulation. The act of chewing stimulates the mind, subsequently alleviating boredom and anxiety. It's like a puzzle and a treat rolled into one!

Positive Way to “Keep Busy”  

Similarly, with their irresistibly tasty and chewy texture, ears serve as fantastic distractions for dogs. Whether during crate training, alone time, guests visiting the home, fireworks, thunderstorms, or moments of restlessness, ear chews keep pups occupied and content.


Looking for a special way to reward your furry friend? Ear chews are an excellent option. The combination of yummy taste, interesting texture, and the highly engaging chewing experience makes them an ideal reward for positive reinforcement after a training session or to say, “Good boy.”

Cow Ear Chews: Beef Up the Fun!

Beef Ear Chew for Dogs

For the beef-loving pooch, cow ears for dogs are the ultimate treat. These protein-packed chews are full of:

  • Omega 3, 6, and 9 fatty acids
  • Chondroitin

Two questions Only One Treats frequently gets about cow ear chews are:

  • Are cow ears digestible for dogs?” 
  • Yes.

    Beef ear chews for dogs are not only delicious and enjoyable but also highly digestible, making them a safe and satisfying option that won't upset your dog's tummy. 

  • Are cow ears rawhide? 
  • No.

    Actually, rawhide is made from the inner lining of an animal’s hide (hence the name). It’s cleaned and treated before cut into strips that are tough to digest. Conversely, cow ear chews are 100% natural – just cartilage and cow skin.
