oldskidog my 12 week old guy loves the big marrow bones - but will knaw on it for about ten minutes and then go bury it!

Tim&Marth If anyone lives close to Menards (department store) they usually have larger antlers for $11.99 that last a long time. Olivia has three and loves them!

For the marrow bones, our local butcher will cut them to roughly 4 inch pieces, usually from the larger parts as to not allow for choking hazard. It's pure silence when Olivia gets one, there is very little she will find more interesting than that bone.

Broncs They are more expensive but they last a LONG time! My 100lb. GSD and 94lb. RR are still chewing on the ones I bought 2 christmas's ago!

I know =( I thought it was pretty sad. I do have a river that deer to go by and sheed them. I wonder if that's safe to use those.

Those are too expensive for a daily use item. I give mine (also 18 weeks) spiral tendons. They are 12", spiral so it takes him longer to work them vs. straight ones. These run me about $6 each. I supervise and take it away after an hour or so, just to make them last. This way, I can go a week per spiral. But, it is the one item that he can chew on for endless hours if I let him. Everything else (and he has MANY chew toys) he gets bored with pretty quick.

The store I buy them from tells me theirs are US made. Not sure if you can find them online.

Hopefully not. Cooking bones makes them brittle and more likely to splinter. I would stick to just raw bones.
