  • @eggplantface that's interesting that a Nylabone chipped his teeth. Could you try a softer Nylabone, perhaps one made for puppy teeth? We use the nylabones that have grooves in them and have never had an issue with chipped teeth. I know a few people who use Kong toys, stuff them with peanut butter then freeze to entertain their dog for a full day.

  • @eggplantface I effing HATE nylabones. I cannot tell you how many dogs have had to have teeth removed because of them. I like kongs because they are a bit squishier and therefore give more give to the teeth.

  • @haylsbayls We got him the really hard Durachew Nylabones (shocker, he chipped his teeth!) because he is a powerful chewer, I should have been more specific. I'll look into the puppy ones, though, and take a trip to the Petco to test them out. We have one spare that we gave him last night, my MIL got it for him for Christmas. I can indent it with my nail so it's much softer than the other one.

  • @eggplantface ah got it. It's so hard to find the right toy because you don't want it being too soft that they swallow pieces! We use this: https://www.amazon.com/Nylabone-Dura-Souper-Original-Flavored/dp/B00201JENG 
    It's designed for strong chewers but may be a little softer on his teeth

  • @haylsbayls That was actually his first bone, then I bought the next bigger size (which maybe is the problem)! We tried antlers too but the tiny pieces went everywhere. But now that I think about it, I'd rather tiny pieces of antlers all over the floor than my pup having his teeth pulled...

  • @eggplantface - I've always loved Kongs and stick by them. Gizmo will chew up everything else within a day or two, but no matter how long/often he chews on his Kongs, they're still completely intact. Gizmo loves plain Kongs by themselves, but you can put peanut butter or treats inside the Kongs, and it'll keep him occupied for a while. Their interactive line of toys are amazing, and definitely keep a dog's interest.
    Never had any problems with his or any other dogs' teeth that have used Kongs.

  • @eggplantface I second (or 3rd) the Kong toys. Our small dog does ok with the softer toys but our big girl needs something for strong chewers. We've also given them yak milk bones. the flat rawhides were recommended by the vet, but we do those when we can be home to supervise.

  • @jsnakehole that is super irritating. Not everyone needs Facebook validation for their relationship. Plus, holy insensitive.

  • @eggplantface We use kong toys. We have a super small soft puppy one for our Maltese and a regular red one for our Sheltie but our Sheltie prefers the tiny pink one. It's like an inch long but she likes it anyways. My two aren't chewers though. My Maltese loves her ball that distributes treats when she pushes it around. 

    Speaking of dogs, I came home this morning from bringing DH to the train station and found that my Sheltie ate 2 oreo pops off the table. Chairs were pushed in and everything. No clue how she got them because she isn't even tall.

    Thanks for all the suggestions, ladies!

  • @eggplantface not sure if you're even looking for suggestions but my dog is a crazy chewer and only likes antlers. They last him a long time and are safe.

  • Yeah, I am not one of those people that needs Facebook Valentines validation.  But it's EVERYWHERE today!  I am kind of loving seeing all of the love in a time when everything else is so negative.
    So, my TW this week is  my BFF's husband - who is also my husbands BFF.  They apparently got suuuuuper drunk this afternoon and were on the verge of killing each other...so guess who has a houseguest this evening?  Oy vey.  At least my husband and I aren't valentines people, otherwise I would be really annoyed  My man and his BFF are currently in my living room watching Friday, of all things, and drinking rum.  I repeat - Oy VEY!
