6.5 months - when does the chewing end?

Hi,

My pup is 6.5 months and the vet said she has all her adult teeth now. The pup still constantly needs to chew things. If she is awake, she has something in her mouth that she is chewing on. When will she stop chewing so much?

Also, does anyone have recommendations for long lasting chew treats? She gets diarrhea from rawhides, pig ears, bully sticks, and raw bones. I can only give her one of these every few days or she gets diarrhea. She also cannot tolerate grains. Is there a long lasting, grain free chew treat that doesn't cause loose stools?

The serious chewing has just begun I suggest Nylabones - the biggest size and the durable ones. Also the big black tough kong - I would stuff that with a dried sweet potatoes.

I buy soup bones. I boil the bones for 10 min just to get the bacteria off the bone. My sheps love em. I have bones all over the yard and my house.

I would love to give more bones, but they give her diarrhea. Are boiled bones ok? I had heard not to cook bones?

No cooked bones. Give antlers, nylabones, or frozen kongs if you want longer lasting. Chewing lasts a lifetime for serious chewers

She doesn't like kongs or nylabones, but I will try the antlers. Has anyone tried hymalain cheese (sp?).

I give bones, it's a mix pack that one of my raw suppliers offer. He also has a rubber like ball and bone made by JW, made in USA and all those crazy unsavory chemicals free.

Oh and he's 15 months old. He'd go through a pigs ear in no time flat.

at 6.5 months i think some of the chewing has to do with
training. rule out the medical before giving anymore treats..
i don't give my dog anything from China.
