Default What kind of chews do you buy?

Just looking for more ideas.

We do the typical bully sticks (thin preferred) and cow ears though my two have kind of lost enthusiasm for them.

Summer has missing teeth so she likes soft chews.

These are currently both dogs' favorite but are really quick work even for toothless dog:

They also really like these casing twists:

Mia likes these but Summer is only meh about them:

Also like duck feet (we often get them at stores here):

Salmon sticks- these REEK and are essentially a treat vs a chew

Also love THK Catfish beams. These also reek.

Always looking for new options vs the standard bully stick!

I looove Wholesome Hide rawhide - it's the only rawhide I will give my dogs and the retriever rolls last foreeeever.

The himalayan chews seem hit or miss - some last forever, some are detroyed quickly.

Zukes ZRidge bones are a fav here.

Chicken and turkey necks are a summer treat here.

I get the 12" standard bullysticks from & i normally order another bag of something. Sometimes is the 1lb grab bag, the most recent time it was the pig ears. Honestly, what he chews on the most are "soup bones" from the store. Those provide a good deal of chewing fun.

He also has some nylabones, but those seem to have fallen out of favor, along with his antlers and Himalayan chews.

Then again, this is the dog who thinks half the fun of chew toys are pouncing on them & sending them skidding across the hardwood floor.

I like Chuck & Don bully sticks because they don't smell. they last Lodin a long time, Webster a little while, and Kim/Mira about 15 minutes. The girls...don't get them often.

Antlers are always here. They have really skyrocketed in price the last few years so I am not sure what I will do about getting new ones. Still less expensive than a new couch, I guess...

Nylabones are always here

Tried a Himalayan chew thing and it was decimated in minutes.

You could try a trachea but I know Tucker finishes it in like 10 minutes.

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

Nylabones. It's the only thing that doesn't get destroyed in 5 minutes. Plus bully sticks gave him horrible diarrhea last time I tried.

Jackson's really picky with what he will chew. Half the time things I would give him, he ends up just carrying around, whining, and looking for a place to bury.

So yeah the only chews he gets are bully sticks, Purina dental chews (they come in a box for like $7.99, I get them from, and then for the 'soft chews' that he eats pretty quickly he gets Dentastix, Get Naked chews, or the new-ish Milkbone dental chews.

I always have Himalayan chews on hand, but a couple of my dogs get bored with them after 10 or so minutes.

They all love bully sticks, but my heavy chewers (Rory, Rylie, and Tucker) go through them so fast.

None of mine like antlers. I wish they did, because we have a big stash of them.

Rabbit ears and fish skin chews are a big hit here. I've found the fish skins made by Honest Kitchen last the longest, but they still only last about 10 minutes per dog.

I like the Himalayan chews as well. Bison cartilage from BBS is really popular with my guys, they last a decent time, too.

The occasional bully stick or trachea, but usually we stock up on smoked knuckle bones from the butcher. They're awesome and inexpensive and last.
