    Default Any recommendations for lasting chew treats? Pig ears?

    Some breeders recommend pig ears? Anybody tried these? Are they safe?

    Personally, I had a bad experience with Murray and pig ears and also beef knuckle bones. He loved them both but got super super aggressive which was not ok. If you are looking for a longer lasting chew I would suggest an antler, the bigger ones last a long time or a raw marrow bone

    Pig ear, hooves and rawhides are choking hazards. Antlers are your best bet. Just stay away from splits if possible.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    No pig ears, raw hides bully sticks, or anything like that. Nylabones, Kongs, and Elk antlers are all good chew toys.

    Agree with the gang.... stay away from all those processed items -- bad, bad, bad in a few ways.

    raw (not cooked) marrow bones
    moose paddles
    deer/elk antlers
    Nylabones

    are all great options

    +1 for the elk antler and if your pup starts to get bored of it a overnight soak in water with a small amount of broth will help bring some flavor to get him back at it. Just make sure u read the ingredients on the broth.

    Bentley had a pig ear once. He "found" it at the pet food store so I felt obligated to purchase it after he slobbered it. It was a disgusting mushy mess in no time. Later he threw up a big pile of foamy yuck.
    He only gets nylabones, now, or an occasional marrow bone. I would also allow him to have an antler but no pig ear, ever.
    So, basically, I agree with the others.

    NO not for a bulldog or rawhide , they can and will choke on them , made the mistake with My first bulldog and she choked on them . My other dogs eat them no issues and LOVE pigs ears but not to many or the runs can develop and I get concerned about all that smoking they do to them to cure them , they say BBQ and smoked meat is a cause of cancer if in humans if eaten to much .
    YOU MIGHT BE A BULLDOG IF...

    ...everyone else in a room with you is pinching their noses
    ...you snore like a chain saw.
    ...it takes too much energy to beg
    ...your snore is louder than your bark
    ...you have never seen your tail...what is a tail anyways?
    ...you're the loudest snorer in the house.

    Bump for more info. Got a water buffalo horn tonight because Pablo grabbed it off the shelf, and it was cheap. Perfect combo. He seems to LOVEit but didn't see it mentioned here.

    I know to watch if it starts falling apart. Anything else? How much are the options you all listed, approximately?

    These things are expensive! I have hunter friends but I don't think elk lol just deer maybe.
