Default What chews do you use?

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?

Wow, I wish my chews lasted as long as it does for you guys. Thick, 12", bully sticks last for maybe two minutes (tops). Raw shank bones last about an hour, himalayan chews lasted about 30 seconds, and filled frozen kongs are gone in about 20 min. Anything that is a dehydrated something (trachea for example) is gone in under a minute, which is why I don't buy them. It's only frozen raw stuff in my house pretty much.

I do grab bags from best bully sticks. Some of the chews don't last long but others last a decent amount of time. They can go through a bully stick in an hour or so if they work at it but other days they just chew a while and then lose interest. The gullet strips are their favorites but they go quick. For a big dog, it'd be more of a treat than a chew. Mine chew theirs in < 15 minutes.

The grab bags have ears, gullet strips, tendons, bully sticks, tracheas, etc. I freaking love best bully sticks. So much love.

Himalayan chews don't hold interest. Neither do antlers. Summer thinks RMBs are icky but Mia likes them on occasion.

ETA: Duck feet are another favorite. Summer hoardes them.

Bully sticks - 15-20 minutes maybe

Rolled raw hides - Extremely variable. If they stay interested in them then maybe an hour. More often though they lose interest after 15 minutes and often forget about them for days to weeks.

Antlers - Hit and miss. They last awhile but don't hold interest for very long. Only Kili is interested in them. Summit likes the smell but not the chew!

Himalayan chews - Again, mostly just Kili. They last quite awhile. But she generally only works on them for 10 minutes at a time. I do find she goes back to them almost daily though.

Raw bones - Depends on the type but these last the longest. My favourite are the neck bones I get from the butcher. In the summer I'll put the dogs out in the yard with one each and they will work on them for 2 hours. Intensely. Then they pass out for a nap!
