    I've been looking for some large rawhide rolls made in the USA for Devon, and was wondering if anyone knows where I can get some. Devon's a huge chewer, so I need a rawhide roll meant for a big dog (say a foot long and really thick). So far, my choices are rolls made in China, Vietnam, Brazil, or Columbia, none of which are inspiring from a food safety point of view.

    We learned to be sure to watch while they chew. Bits nearly choked herself with one.

    I used to really like these:

    https://www.earthanimal.com/p/no-hide-chicken-4-inch-chews/

    Made in the USA, and not actually rawhide. Elise isn't a fan of bully sticks, so this was a good alternative for her.

    The other day I was training the puppy for a bit and gave each of the dogs a bone. I was gone for maybe 5 minutes. Came back and Elise had unrolled the stick and had a piece stuck in her throat. She wasn't choking, but she wasn't far from it. So those are off the list :(

    I've tried all the alternatives and either my dogs eat them in under a minute or they don't like them, so I've gone to US-made rawhide. You can look for Castor and Pollux Good Buddy rawhide, available on Chewy here as well as some other websites. It's one that my dogs actually like and eat, and the chews last for more than a few minutes!

    As Chris said, we never leave rawhide around or in crates when we're not home or able to supervise. If you have an aggressive chewer (like one of mine) they swallow big pieces and I've had to fish it out of a throat more than once. This is true of any chew though.

    Devon has given two thumbs up to the rawhide rolls mentioned above and is busily chewing away at the first one I gave him. They are sort of expensive relative to other rawhides, but I feel a whole lot better giving him something to chew on that was made in the USA versus overseas.

    We bought some that was made in the USA also, yes we can feel better about that. I got mine
    at Meijers grocery store. They have great prices and great doggie items.
