Thanks for the info on the Himalayan cheese. It looked pricy, but if it lasts for a while than i might try that and an antler too.

Okay, I have to ask, what is hymalain cheese? I give my 6.5 month old CHEWER, very small pieces of string cheese, along with liver or Nature's Balance Rolls, when I'm training her but a couple of people have told me that it's very drying to their skin, has anyone else heard this? She loves cheese, so hopefully I'm wrong.

Tess is an avid chewer, in fact, she just chewed up, in the blink of an eye, a new sponge ball I gave her only this morning.... I give Tess, Kong's stuffed with yogurt and crushed up kibble, Elk Antlers, Bully Sticks (occasionally), Nylabones, and frozen marrow bones. I was told never to cook them, due to them becoming softer and splintering off, so I do not.

I too was wondering when the chewing would stop but after reading this post, I do not anticipate it being anytime soon. It's a constant thing with Tess, I wish I could show you our coffee table, from when she was a little younger, all 4 corners of the table are gone.

our dogs are deff chewers. The best way around it is to make sure there are toys that can sustain the chewing and the dog clearly knows what is acceptable to chew and what isnt

Seriously?!?!? Now chewing has to do with training??? Shepherds are known chewers. They like things in their mouths. They are very 'mouth oriented' dogs. I have found antlers and knuckle bones to be a life saver. They aren't quickly consumed like bully bones (I've had the same issue with diarrhea from it with Grim), but aren't a toy that's going to be torn up quickly, either. Kong makes some balls that squeak when the dog bites on them, but they aren't easily destroyed. Also, the orbee balls are good for chewing. Not rock hard, but also not easily destroyed. I've had shepherds chew their whole lives. I don't think that's something that just goes away with age.
