Anybody use this Nylabone toy?
I was at target and popped into the dog isle for fun. I saw a Nylabone product that i ended up buying. I've never used nylabone before. I'm not sure why, I don't have anything against the brand.... i just don't know much about their products. Marley has always been a crazy chewer. Thankfully he only chews his own toys, but the only ones that last are the ultimate kong, chuck it balls, and well thats about it. He loooooves tennis balls but he chews the felt (sp?) off pretty quick.

He playing with the Nylabone right now and loving it. He's still trying to figure out if it's an edible treat or a toy, heh.

I hear you guys talk about you "cuz" balls/toys. I havent given that a whirl yet because they just look so fragile. Especially with those little legs, Marley would tear those up as an appetizer........

Here's the nylabone i bought. Anyone ever used this? Did you like it?

I bought one but my dog could have cared less about it. I have bought him those kind, plain ones, filled natural bones, antlers etc and he will chew for a bit but then eventually loses interest. The only toy he really plays with or chews on his is solid kong balls.

My Olde English Bulldogge had one. It's durable but the ends turn from round bumps to plastic shrapnel and we ended up taking it away to avoid her accidentally swallowing the small sharp plastic pieces.

Well...20 minutes after i write the post i just had to take it away from him. He had barely even gotten into the darn thing and i am starting to see blood on it.

Another one bites the dust. *sigh*

He's such a chewer, i need other toys.:confused:

If he likes balls - try the kong solid balls. The black one is really tough and my guy will lay down and just chew on it. You can also try natural bones or antlers - those tend to be favorites.

It's hit or miss but if he's a power chewer I recommend antler chews. Large deer or moose antlers are great if your guy takes to them. They don't smell, splinter, and have the side benefit of providing some natural minerals.

Sorry that it didn't last, everything being so expensive these days. I would have thought it would have held up better, I have the hard solid nylabones for my chewers and have never noticed that it made their gums bleed. :(

Yeah, i dont even know if Marley classifies as a power chewer. He's more of a Hulk-a-mania chewer:rolleyes: Thank god for ice cube treats, cheap and easy!

I have this nylabone and about 15 others, all different kinds. All of my dogs love them. Once the ends start getting worn I replace them, but that usually takes a couple months. Mine also get antlers, kongs, rope toys and stuffed toys. I watch the rope toys and stuffed toys and they only have those when I'm home.

Seeing blood after chewing can be a sign of gum disease which means that he needs to chew or possibly have his teeth cleaned if that is the case.
