We bought our girl a pressed wood stick.... Because she won't leave them alone. I'd say be careful because the fragments could potentially get lodged. Attachment 194754

Blanketback Another things with sticks, besides what's already been mentioned: if you ever want to stack firewood, good luck letting your pup know it's off limits. Yup, lol.

Harry and Lola I'd be very careful with sticks, you really don't want him swallowing splintered wood plus I've had sticks break when in their mouths leaving a piece of wood wedge in between their top teeth, which I had to hook out of their mouths. Also have heard of dogs running with sticks in their mouths and tripping resulting in the stick stabbing their throats.

llombardo I'm going to try the plastic bottles with supervision, they like noisy stuff.

llombardo All of mine chew on sticks and I spend a lot of time saying drop it or leave it. It is impossible to keep the yard clear of them since the yard is surrounded by trees. They have one very long one they play with and don't chew. I had to cover the fire pit with plastic because they steal the wood out of there. They have plenty of toys and each other but they still go for the sticks

Take a couple old dishtowels, get them wet and ring it out, stick it in the freezer for a little while. That's great for teething and baby bites.

Sticks can be a problem - stop reading *now* if you don't want to get freaked out.

I had one dog that got the Y from a forked branch stuck behind in the back of his mouth. 3 people to hold him down and a 4th to get it out with a pair of vice grips. Friend of mine's dog got it wedged into her throat and had to have surgery to remove a fragment that jammed through her trachea. Venus' sister loved to play fetch with them and had an e-visit over hitting herself in the eye with one.
EEK good to know with the sticks. It's Titans too, only he just wants to play fetch, no chewing.

The frozen towel is brilliant, wish I would have thought to do that when he was a puppy.. good idea for our future pup
