kr16 Its the split ones that are bad. I have a big elk antler and have had it for 2 months for two GSD's. They use it everyday and have not worn it down. The water Buffalo one wears down quicker. That's pretty hardy as well, they only have worn that down a little.

katro I think it's the split antlers that go pretty quick. Ralphie's got about half of an un-split deer antler still left to go that's about 6 months old. I bought him a split elk antler last week, though, and there's only a little stub of it left.

DJEtzel I have heard great things about the water buffalo horns. SO swears by them for his Dobes.

DobberDog Thanks for the input. Ill try a moose antler and see how it goes.

Lucy Dog Mine destroy those split elk antlers. They love them, but they don't last more than 24 hours.

Deer antlers seem to last much longer.

Stevenzachsmom Definitely moose antlers. They are the hardest of the antlers. Tynes last much longer than splits. My dog has been working on his since September. He goes through the splits in a day.

She has other types as well and you can contact her, tell her your dog's size and chewing habits, and she will make a safe recommendation for you.

Huxley has had his moose antler chunk for over a year and it is barely worn. The shape is nice because he has to gnaw on it in such a way that I don't worry about broken teeth.
Heh,heh... thanks, I just bought that moose antler

Remo The deer/elk antlers that are NOT split seem to last a whole lot longer than the split ones. Have you tried them yet?
