I would never give raw hide . Know too many incidents where dogs have run into serious, meaning fataly serious problems . Not only do many of them have preservatives which "embalm" them , or come from off-shore with who knows what else , but they come off in chunks and absorb moisture in the gut . There they begin to swell like a sponge taking up water . Indigestible , they saponify , get soapy-slimy. They act as a dam preventing food from going through the digestive system. Put pressure on tissue. They spoil in the gut creating bacterial havoc , tissue dies , necrotizes and then you have emergency surgery .
One of my high levels competition dogs spoiled by his loving owner was on the operating table and when it was evident how much damage had been done and how much of the intestine was dead , necrotic tissue, the owner and vet humanely kept him under the anaesthetic and helped him pass on to his next journey .
When the vet phoned the supplier / importer of these raw hide products they were lightning fast to respond with cash , compensation - without questions at all - so not unfamiliar with the problem .
Wow I didn't know that thank you for sharing there is a lot I still don't know she is my first GSD I will remove all the rawhides and tell all my friends who have dogs to discontinue these evil treats. Any other treats I should be aware of? I usually don't even buy her treats often chews yes but not treats. I give her boiled chicken breast when training her.. And other boiled meat sometimes... Oh and beef jerky rarely. Is beef jerky safe for dogs?

I , personally would pass on jerky treats . You have to read the package . Lots of salt, sugar, some with BHA or Nitrites , one had onion powder , colourants , then whatever chemicals some may have to make it smell (or taste) smoked .

For training treats, I also generally use fresh human ingredients, like boiled chicken. I sometimes also do an egg or kefir/yogurt and green tripe mixed with her kibble. I try to stick as close to natural training treats as possible so not to put too much junk in her as I do feed ALOT of training treats.

In terms of chews, I do give bully sticks (you can also get dried trachea, tendon, or something else more appealing to you). My dog also likes antlers. If you feed these, introduce them with the half sliced ones. She wasn't very interested in the full sized ones.
