Default What chews do you use?

And how long do they last your dogs?

Bully sticks last 1-5 minutes depending how intensely she works on it.
The himalayan chews hold her interest for a few minutes at a time before she gets bored of it, so they last a lot longer but it's not a continual thing.

I don't give her antlers anymore. Too hard for her teeth.

We use RMB's, which last A WHILE. Also, nylabones, the toy versions. They last forever as well?

Was that helpful? Lol.

Bully Sticks mainly. They last about a week. The himalayan chews last longer, but I can't say exactly how long, maybe 2 weeks.

Thank you ~Dixie's Mom~ for my awesome siggy!

The occasional bully stick. I buy the 12" thick ones so they last him a while. He will usually chew for about an hour one day and an hour the next. Sometimes a third day.

We won't do antlers due to tooth breakage and he doesn't really care about Himalayans. Don't do raw bones either.

I do buy Dentastix and Get Naked chews but they barely last him a minute. They're more to just have a treat and tell him to go lay down lol.

Mainly these, with the occasional lamb chop/neck, pork neck or turkey/chicken neck.

The raw stuff lasts the longest- about 5 minutes. All the others are gone in a flash.

- Bully stick: 30 minutes
- Filled marrow bones (peanut butter): a few weeks and reusable (can refill yourself)
- Antlers: months
- cod skin: 10 seconds
- Trachea: 30 minutesish

Longest lasting/favorite is antler. No teeth problems yet.. never heard of them being an issue?

I restuff marrow bones for active chewing, I leave them out empty for passive chewing. Occasionally I buy RMBs which last about 5-15 min and split antlers which last for a few weeks.

I am pretty sure my nylabones last for 78 years and are chewed on every few months for a few minutes at a time.

We give him raw marrow bones from the butcher. They last anywhere between 1-3 hours, depending on the size or when we take it away because he's being too obsessive.

DH is freaked out about nylabones & Crossbone eating plastic.

Deer antlers
Elk antlers

They all last a little while. They prefer the nylabones and nylabone-types above the anlters. I just went on a chew buying spree so I think they'll be good for a while.
