|Ellimaybel||Strictly out of curiosity, I thought popular belief was that chicken bones are horrible for dogs because they splinter? I only ask for clarification in case that's an old wives tale.|

Chicken wings are a good bone to start with, but is also part of a meal as well.
For keeping her occupied while you watch a movie, I would use a marrow bone cut to a 10cm sort of size, she will be quite busy trying to get the marrow out.

Whether it is a split or solid antler, they are trying to get to the marrow in the middle. They grind down the outer part of the antler to get to the marrow. It is much harder to grind down the outside of a solid one to get to the marrow than it is to chew the marrow out of the middle of a split. The difference is in the amount of effort it takes the dog to get to the marrow. An antler isn't split by the dog. In fact, a solid is usually too hard for puppies because their mouths are more sensitive. Some antlers are just sold pre-split down the middle to give the dog easier access to the marrow until they are either old enough to grind down the outside by themselves or interested enough in getting to the marrow that they will grind down the tough outside of a full solid.
He might gnaw on it, some do. But it is a bit hard for his puppy teeth, and a split would probably be easier on his puppy teeth and let him glean more enjoyment and success.

That's a solid, split looks like this.
Some do only solids, but I've found it has a good chance of frustrating a dog who hasn't had antlers before and can sort of kill their interest in them if you don't start them out on a split that shows them the value of working to get the marrow.

Not sure if this is what you're talking about or not Pax8....
