My sister-in-law is a vet and she told me to never give my dog a cheap rawhide from WalMart or other bargain stores. She said they do not digest well and swell when moist. At the time she said she had to do 3 surgeries in a week because of intestinal blockage and each time the rawhide was the culprit.

I have two dogs and neither have been big fans of chewing. I think because when they were pups to even a few years old I discouraged them from chewing furniture and stuff around the house.

For fetching i've always used a field hockey ball. It is like an oversized tennis ball but hard solid rubber with no covering. It doesn't really bounce either. My GSD loves them and they are too large to swallow.
