Oh yes.. I've gave my boy the Blue Wilderness Elk antlers before and he loves it but it's so pricy! Where can I purchase cheaper kinds that are just as good?

Try a split and full elk antler. My girl loves them! And most other things she can A. chew through and eat or B. makes her gums bleed like crazy because the chew is practically indestructible and she has to break it into pieces.
Antlers are the way to go. I would start with split because the marrow is showing and the dogs can really get into that easily and than upgrade to whole antler. You can get them at pet stores or on amazon!

For the last year or so I have been buying from them. I have had luck with these antlers lasting a while. I would say Rusty is a moderate chewer.
