Oh! Right on that link there are some prices. Wow, they're not exactly cheap, are they. Well, no wonder. That poor bull had to give up a lot!

Nyla bones aren't cheap either....the ones for powerful chewers anyhow. Where do you get these at the best price? Does anyone know a good place?

I buy from Bully Sticks - All Natural Dog Treats - Best Bully Stick. They have a special right now on bulk orders (yes, I buy dried bull penises in bulk).

Oh, and you can get Nylabones from PetEdge, but they do have a minimum order requirement (or you have to pay an add'l premium).

I did give them a little raw turkey neck yesterday and Toker threw up in the middle of the night and Jose` had messy poo poos. They need something fun to chew on.
Yeah, they're relatively healthy and usually take a long time to chew up. There was a thread recently about how long it takes a dog to finish one.

I heard what they were a few years ago and I didn't believe the guy who told me.

Well, at my training facility they sell stuff...collars, leads, training aids, treats... bully sticks.... Muffin was sniffing the box of the bully sticks, so I was like, "oh you want one, ok we'll get you one." Turns out he really likes them.... so I buy a big bag of 24 from the feed store....

then I read the "ingredients"

Oh thanks Bailey. I'll check that out.

Ha ha Lizzybeth! That's funny. I wonder how many people really buy into this story. LOL.

A-w-w-w Baxter looks like he's thoroughly enjoying that. I know my dogs will too.

I just read the link you posted, doberluv...interesting.

This part made me scratch my head though...

Compared to other dog chews, bully sticks last incredibly long time. It can take weeks for a small dog to chew on one bully stick, while large breeds may enjoy chewing of bull pizzles between a few hours and a few days.
Yeah...Lucy's done with a standard 6" one in about 20 minutes. Ugh. She's so food obsessed it's ridiculous. Better than the 5 minutes for a frozen kong though.

That makes me feel better. That one looks bigger than the ones I give Lucy. Or else I'm confused how big Baxter is!
