Default bully sticks

lots of you have mentioned that you give them to your dogs, but i am curious: how long do they last? i've been giving sylvie these 100% digestable pork twists and she can chew through one in a day. trying to find something that will last longer. bully sticks are quite a bit more expensive, so if they don't last any longer i don't see the point in bothering. ive given her real raw soup bones, but once she's cleaned them off, she doesn't bother with them.
i won't touch rawhide, but i'm trying to find something else...

They don't last long at my house. The compressed rawhide lasts a bit longer, though.

Here it depends on the dog, and the brand as well.

Hannah can go through a Merrick's bully stick (I think 9 inch is what I get her) in about 1 to 1 and 1/2 hours. The red barn bully sticks take her 3-4 hours.

Holly goes through the 9 inch Merrick's in about 3-4 hours and a Red Barn bully stick in about 5 hours (so they both last her an afternoon).

Ele it takes her 2-3 days to finish a 9 inch bully stick of either brand and 2 days to finish a 6 inch stick of either brand.

You know, I can hear all the guys on the forum collectively wincing at this thread

The long braided ones seem to last the longest. Three braided bull penises. Delightful.

well, i picked up a little 3" bully stick [or steer stick as the store called them, which is probably more correct since the male cattle that is raised for food products are steers, not bulls] yesterday and HELLO did that stink! anyway, she polished if off in an hour. i got her some beef tendon, too, and that was being sucked down super fast. sheesh.

anyone use nylabones?
