Best bones
 
Yazzie is not a fan of bones, at least none that I have tried and at 7 months she needs to chew! I haven't tried rawhides but I've tried the butcher block bones, antlers, and bull horns, any suggestions?

i don't give my dog rawhide. i give him elk antlers, deer antlers
and beef femur bones. the beef bones i give him are center cut
(not split). sometimes i give him a whole femur bone.

Don't know what "butcher block bones" are, unless they are the ones that are "smoked" which is a form of cooking. All meat bones should be raw. I use knuckle bones and shank bones. Just make sure that they are much bigger than her mouth!;)
You could also try cow or horse hooves.

RAWHIDE is DEADLY to some dogs!:eek: I'd steer clear of those!

I give beef marrow (soup) bones raw frozen. They love them. The bigger chunks are for the Shepherds the smaller ones are for my little mixes.

Also a kong filled with canned food and kibble is something that keeps them busy as well.

Where do you get your bones from.

The local grocery store. Either Scolari's or sometimes Safeway. They also sometimes have pigs feet or beef feet. Look in the frozen section. They sometimes have the big whole femur bone with the knuckles on each end. When they do, I ask the butcher behind the counter to cut it up for me.

My vet told me not to give soup bones to my dogs. I had to take one of my shepherds to the vets for a x-ray. He had slivers of bone in his stomach. He had to be put on Medicine to pass it. My vet told me to give raw hides. I don't buy them that often, once in a while.

Raw beef marrow bones. My dogs can't resist them and it keeps them occupied...for a little while anyway! I order my frozen through my natural pet store.

I've had a lot of success with XL antlers (they don't make a mess, so that's a plus). I also feed my puppy about half of his daily food through a kong. I load some kibble in, throw in a little peanut butter or cottage cheese and water to make it sticky, then let him at it!

My dog likes antlers too, def no rawhide or smoked bones.

I also like feeding her dehydrated duck feet, chicken necks, turkey wings, beef tracheas etc. as a chew treat, although they don't last as long.
