I will def. check out the place on Cornelius Pass Rd vivienne- thanks for the rec. I'd like to price check.

I end up buying on this site when they have sales. I often buy the really long ones and cut them in half or thirds - I do the math and it's often cheaper per inch. Just be sure they're not the skinny ones.
I don't find the bully sticks I get from that site very smelly unless I am right up in their faces. If you're worried about the slime, put down a towel or something.
Bully Sticks – Bully Sticks for Dogs – Best Bully Sticks


I also get the himalayan chews from that website, when they are on sale - which is always cheaper than I can find in stores. I like the bag of large/jumbo mixed. They are also spendy but last longer than bullies.
Himalayan Dog Chew - Large/Jumbo - Mixed Chews | All Dog Chews & Treats

I will also get these rawhides, which again are more spendy but they don't come off in large pieces. I still dont' leave them unsupervised, but these are one of the few rawhides I trust with the dogs at all. For Si I get the super thick one.
Wholesome Hide USA Rawhide Retriever Rolls - Cherrybrook


Then there's always the puzzle-type toys - we use the everlasting treat ball but just put things inside it (Si can pop one of the caps off quickly after they get slimy). And there's the old go-to stuffed kong. Silas loves the buster cube but it is LOUD on wood floors - though you have carpet, right?


I no longer give marrow bones, either. Frankie broke a tooth on one. I guess I'm happy that none of my dogs have ever shown interest in nylabones. Never knew there was an issue with teeth.

Pooooooor Q. Give him an ear rub from me, and a sympathetic kiss from Si.

Part of the socialization & education process for my two puppers included a class in human marketing strategies. Early on I would hold a meaty bone in one hand and a look alike injection molded & "flavored" bone in the other.

Let them each have a smell and then explain the "real" bone cost daddy around $1.67 from the butcher shop and the artificially chemically flavored one was $23.95 at pets mart. I then would explain that those nice marketing people had many sleepless nights designing the packaging so it would POP out as the consumer walked down the aisle. Those same people had even more sleepless nights trying to bring this pupperlicious treat in at the lowest cost possible to please the god of bean counters, Sometimes even resorting to gasp,importing from China under the cover of night to a lonely pier in California.

Believe me my smart pupper's eyes were focused on me, gotta love a doberman's need for knowledge. So smart they had a few questions to ask. Annika with wide eyes asked if the marketing people cared if the plastic bone was good for her. Of course little love of my life. They care so much that they place a little warning insert on the package for Daddy to read. You can only have this under my supervision and I have to be sure I purchased the properlysized product. See little red wonder, they care so much that if anything bad happens the liability can be partially shifted to me !


In case you were wondering Bismarck is drooling over the meaty bone I am waving around like a prop to make a point. So I hand it over and Annika takes it away. Bismarck decides to try the plastic thing that looks so real but tastes faintly like fortune cookies, drops it, takes off after his sister and a fight ensues. Don't worry I had two real meaty bones, hell for $1.67 each I bought a dozen.

Hey Kids ! They even have nutritional value! That comment fell on floppy ears

Sorry about Q's tooth.
Nylabones, argh, wouldn't meat flavored rocks work just as well jk My 1st would have nothing to do w/a nyla *sigh*, which knowing what I know now, was a good thing.

I keep meaning to ask ppl's opinions on the Chlorhexidine chews but forget until I see them randomly, so since I'm here, forgive me for tossing that out.

DR, you could use the nylabone to hammer a nail into the wall and finally hang that picture.

We don't want stinky slimy stuff like rawhides or bully sticks.

what else?

or, just keep on with nylabones?
Chloe also broke a tooth. We think hers was broken from a hard real bone we bought a few months ago. Big rope bones are her new chew toys, we play tug of war, and taught her the "release" command. The rope bones do a good job of cleaning her teeth too.

My dogs loved nylabones and antlers but not anymore! Zelda is 5 years old and her teeth are jacked up from letting her chew on these hard chews. I will NOT be making the same mistake with Prime.
