|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.|

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 think so? They look like the one on the end, all off-white or yellowish.

I give my baby puppies bully sticks but once the puppies are like 14 weeks old they start swallowing larger chunks which is dangerous. I don't want to have to sit there and watch the dog chew, for me that defeats the purpose of giving him something to do and not be naughty while I'm busy.
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.

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.

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!|

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