Thank you! I'm taking inventory around the house to figure out what I want to order for Christmas. I came across the Himalayan nubs and knew I had seen something here on DT about them.

Well, at this point, I'm wondering if I have really weird dogs, or if I somehow happened across subpar Himalayan chews, but my guys can decimate these in a half hour or less.

They love 'em, but for the price and how long they last, nah.

The dobers here decimate them in record time as well. Indy, or non-dobe, savors them and hers will last forever.

I've been wanting to try the antlers. Are they safe for their teeth? The ones in the store are so small and expensive, my local Tractor Supply doesn't have them this year so is Amazon a good place to buy them? (I always look there since I have a Prime Membership) Is there a particular kind to get?

Silas never enjoyed the antlers until I got him a split one. Now he loves them! I think they are softer and safer than weight-bearing bones. They last a long time.

My himalayan chews last a while with Scout. With Silas they last a decent amount of time - I use the large and medium ones, so it depends on which one he gets. I would say that after about a 1/2 hour I take them away. They're not gone then, but he's not a super strong chewer compared to some of the dogs on this site. I don't give them often because they are expensive, but just as another one in the rotation of chewies. I always get them on sale, and get the multi-packs.

Well, the one Dober musta rubbed off on the others here, because even my little Mina (AHT) finished hers in like, twenty minutes.

Scout gets the medium/large ones, too and there's no way she'd finish hers in 20 minutes. She goes through them faster than I anticipated but I get much more time out of her. Maybe I'm just lucky.
