Best for chewing?
I am wanting to get my newly adopted GSD something to chew on. I am looking for suggestions for the best chew toys on the market?

So far, the only thing that i have found that last a very long time and great for dogs to chew on is deer antler. I have been a avid hunter for a long time and Achim snaged ahold of a deer shed I had found. At first I was upset that he was grabbing things off the table, then realized that it was the only thing he was chewing on. Since then I have taken him shed hunting and he will find them all over in places I wouldnt be able to get to. I have found more sheds in the last 2 years than iv ever found on my own. Its a win win. Achim gets chew toys and I figure out where the big deer are. You can go to petco or petsmart and they will charge you 7 to 8 dollars for a 3 inch small peice of antler.

Awesome, Luckily I am a hunter also and I have a 8 point I could try to cut up and give to him. If that does not work I will go to petsmart!! Thanks for the reply!

We use nylabones, elk antler (deer antler gets chewed too fast!) and just recently ordered this "stick" product...

USA Antlers Elk Rack Snack Elk Antler Chew

I order kibble and treats from this site (much easier than trying to drag a 30lb bag home from the store!) so every once in awhile i throw in a new toy or chew :blush:
