    Default Tasty Chew Toy - Your Recommendations?

    Ill be honest. You're not supposed to give dogs rawhide, but ... the truth is, Baxter would sit with a good old fashioned rawhide bone for *hours* and just work on that thing.

    The end result? His teeth were absolutely spectacular. Then someone put the fear of God in me about Rawhide.

    Then someone else told me "As long as you monitor them, and dont let them eat too much in one sitting - because it doesn't digest well, then its okay".

    Jury still out? Im about to go buy some more rawhide. His teeth are getting gross after a few months of nothing to chew, and I gave up trying to brush them.

    Is there anything you guys recommend that your bully will sit for hours and work on?

    I have tried "natural" rawhide - advertised as "safe" for dogs and he completely ignores it. Must have no flavor or something?

    I have tried antlers. He enjoyed that a few times, but now ignores it.

    He will walk around 3 rawhides 1 antler and four chew toys and instead chew on his crate for 10 minutes.

    He needs something to chew. Its either rawhide or what you tell me!!!!!

    We have several elk antlers around the house that Harlea used to chew on for about 30 minutes at a time before she would get bored. Then I was finally able to get a hold of a good sized piece of the flat paddle portion of a moose antler and she will chew on it for hours on end. So much so I have had to take it away from her and dry her off for her to take a break. Since she has had that she won't even touch the elk antlers anymore. I think she likes it more because it is not as thick as the elk ones. The one we got is huge and weighs about 3lbs. Might be worth a shot if you can get a hold of one.

    Thanks Marine. Definitely will look into it. I cant help but think the taste element is important. Maybe those have a taste or a smell too.

    Yep thats the right ones. The top one in the 3rd picture is almost identical to the one we got Harlea just a little bit shorter in overall length from the one we have.

    My little guy loves bull penis, lol. Bully sticks to be more precise. They have a lower risk of choking or clogging them up. Plus the bully sticks have bull tendon, which is good for the joints.

    I am a big fan of raw marrow bones.... in the grocery stopr sold as 'beef bones' or 'soup bones'. they are inexpensive and once they are done with the marrow, I stuff with peanut butter, banana, or cream cheese then freeze for a new treat. I also allow the empty bone to become a chew toy.... been doing this for 9+ years, beautiful teeth and never any issues or fear of harm.

    Only time I remove or trash the bone is if it somehow breaks or has rough edges... then it is trashed after the marrow is eaten.

    I have about 5 or 6 bones laying around the house that my boyfriend had before we got together for his chihuaha. I asked him where he got them and apparently his mother got the bone from a roast of some sort? Anyways, it works WONDERS. it's extremely thick, the dogs love them and best of all it is impossible to actually eat it. It stays the same no matter how many years pass. It is great. I attatched a picture so you can see. -img_5948-jpg-img_8952-jpg

    Perhaps I'm using something wrong, but Charley chews on nylabone durachew for strong chewers. If he chews them into a point, we cut off the tip.

    Best thing I have ever found and I never brush teeth:
    RedBarn natural white knuckle bones. Made in the USA. These last a couple of weeks with Leo and longer than that for Lola. I just got a case of 20 of them delivered today. They are about $4.99 a piece at a good pet store.

    Please don't even use Bully Sticks...they are really bad. They can cause blockages and even puncture the intestine! In fact, my parents dog (a Rhodesian Ridgeback) just got back this morning from the ER Vet because of a blockage to his intestine from a Bully Stick. My mom never listens to me when I tell her not to feed them Bully Sticks...she is listening now

    Those are the soup bones that "2BullyMomma" was talking about. These are great to use just as she described. My only recommendation is that while there is marrow inside, give it to your bullie outside...it can get a little gross and messy. We freeze the bones/marrow then give it to Koozer. Good luck!

    Tallulah has several chew toys and if I don't have one out for her she'll start chewing on whatever's handy pretty quick. My vet recommended Nylabones. No real bones she said because Bullies jaws are too strong and they can splinter the bones (chew bones are not usually raw). She said if tiny pieces of the Nylabone come off it's okay for Bullies to ingest them, the piece just passes through.

    She loves her Nylabone Dura Chew Barbell. It's peanut butter flavored and was one of the few I could find that wasn't injected with beef or chicken flavor. It's pretty big, but she's been wearing on it for several weeks and it's still pretty solid. We also have a Bionic bone (day glow orange rubber) that I put peanut butter on once or twice to get her interested and now she chews on it with nothing even if I've just given it a good scrub. (Yes, I wash these things; they get gross. Just hot water and the dish brush.) She gnaws on the Bionic pretty hard and it's holding up really well. My sister gave her one of those firehose toys and she loves that, but the ends are sewn closed with webbing and she's ripped up the webbing pretty good, so I don't leave her alone with it. I do like to take that in the car though, because it doesn't roll around. And a Kong, but that's her least favorite.
