    Howdy Folks,

    Our sweet Remy is a high energy machine and loves to chew on things. I recently purchased some type of natural Bully Stick from our local store (Nat. Pawz) which was expensive ($40 for 3 foot long chews) which Remy devoured the first one in very short order - so we closely monitored the other 2 and took them away after an hour or so.

    We've been real worried about protecting his teeth & gums from injury as well as the quality and digestibility of the chews we give him. The puppy is a chewing machine and needs something safe we can leave with him for a bit. Why types of things do you guys use to treat the chewers in your households?

    Thank you for your time.

    Bill

    I know of some who've soaked the kibble in water and then placed it in a kong and frozen it. The puppy then gets to work at getting the frozen kibble out. Not many things that I'd be comfortable leaving my dog with to chew when I'm not there but I'd be ok with a stuffed Kong, too many things could go wrong with bully sticks or other chews.

    I agree totally!
    I have used the frozen kibble in the Kong for Liam as a pup. Worked great!

    Also, I have used these...

    Gloria, are those Benebones something they actually digest, or just chew on? My guys love bully sticks but these look like a good alternative.

    Other than frozen kibble in the Kong, there just aren't that many chewable, digestible, strong but soft enough not to break teeth dog chewing items out there. I'm thinking some kind of really hard all natural jerky must the only safe solution. Remy is going to aggressively chew something down and swallow whatever he can. Even though Bully Sticks are supposed to be too hard for his teeth, that boy can take the largest one they make and devour it in under 2-3 hours. Every day is a new day with our little devil :)
