Liesje When I had one dog, it never got chewed. They like it better after it's been broken in. Now that I have four dogs, they are competitive with stuff, so someone always grabs it and breaks it in.

I bought the one on the right.

Zoe doesn't chew on it much but she does enjoy throwing it on the tile! It's a lot harder than I anticipated.

I have used antlers but the less dense ones only last minutes and the dense ones are so hard they will break or grind down the dog's teeth.

I don't like the idea of Nylabones being basically plastic, but so far it's the only thing my dogs can chew daily, unsupervised, and not be wearing down their teeth, bleeding gums, or swallowing chunks. They might break off pieces smaller than grains of rice but I see them spit them out and they get picked up in the vacuum.
Do you get the ones for strong chewers?

alexg So it looks like the Nylabones are one of the better options.

eddie1976E I supervise his chewing of this bone closely. He only chews at the end and is able to get small pieces off and swallows them. Most dogs eat small indigestible things and pass them, so a few pieces of rubber should pass ok. My puppy eats small pebbles (not that I want to have him eat them, but he does when out playing). I don't let him chew it for hours on end. I'm pretty paranoid about things, but I'm pretty comfortable with this as I'm watching him and I see he doesn't chew off big pieces.

I like the idea of the bully sticks, but I hear they don't last long. I also like the antlers but they are too expensive.

Steve Strom I could be missing some details, or maybe its not even correct, but when I started reading and hearing these kinds of stories, I got rid of the Nylabones. Could be I missed something though, but I don't let mine chew anything they can't consume.

Your puppy probably can't chew a piece of Eddie, but I'd stick to bully sticks and stuffed kongs.

Liesje Haven't tried that one. Says it's not recommended for strong chewers, which all of my dogs are!

eddie1976E No, not the edible ones. I read about the tummy issues and avoid them. This is the one...
