    Bully sticks under supervision is okay if you ask me. Everything my little vacuum cleaner puts in his mouth is a "choking hazard". Just toss the bully stick when it gets to small and don't let them have it when you are not around. Still too scared of rawhide though.

    If my dog doesn't doesnt go to heaven then neither am I.

    As everyone else said, no rawhide for bullies. Tilly gets antlers and raw marrow bones.

    Just addin a note ... Meeko found a rawhide just once! It was my sisters huskies chewy that she had hidden . Meeko found it and ate it. I knew nothing about it until he started backwards sneezing for about 24hrs went off his food and vommitted everywhere.. He also vomitted up the chew stick completely whole with just a few nibble marks on the end. We were very lucky.

    Since then ive warned my sister how dangerous they are with chemicala etc and she no longer give them to her dogs.

    I agree with everyone's sentiment regarding rawhide, if you actually read how they are made you wouldn't want to give it to your bully.

    Same as post #9...used to give Winston elk antler until he swallowed a shard, a very small one too. He got very sick and didn't poop for three days...didn't want to eat. Once he passed it he was fine but I don't ever want to go through that again.

    To be fair, it totally depends on the dog. You know me more than anyone will never give a bully stick to my bulldog again. (My bully (Remi) is ridiculous and swallowed an entire 1 foot bully stick. There is a thread somewhere I made. I was fortunate to be able to find the last inch in his mouth and pull the whole thing out.) Remi has this strange oral obsession that I think is excessive even for a bulldog. Some breeds may handle one of these fine, but whatever new toys you give your bully, you just really have to supervise. He is now able to handle things he couldn't before when he was younger, so it could be an age thing as well. If your bulldog gags when chewing on toys and such, that's a sure sign he can't handle it. I'm not going to sit there and say it's off the market for everyone like rawhides. But eventually you will come to terms on risk vs. reward.

    Here are some things we think are tried and true:

    Antlers (though to be honest Remi does ignore them most of the time)
    Ever lasting treat ball in vanilla mint (because Remi is allergic to beef/chicken)
    kong toys that we fill with healthy treats
    beef marrow - awesome, but messy (worked awesome with Remi, until we realized he was allergic)
    Water bottle toys. HUGE hit in our house, but you have to supervise with the stuffed animals.
    Stuffed animals. Remi doesn't destroy them like some bullies do, but we get the stuffingless or ultra durable ones.

    Hope this helps!!

    hi......i posted this on bulldog health i thought, but it's not there, so reposting here......i see where some give nylabones to their bullies, i do also but notice where it says that small rice size pieces can come off while chewing, this makes me uneasy , then i read reviews other places telling these horrible stories about how nyla bones cause problems with their dogs....my bulldog loves them so much......but want to make sure i'm doing the right thing by letting him have them. thanks
