, is a champion chewer. Elk antlers seem to be the only thing she can chew on that lasts any amount of time. She likes them okay but I'd like to give her more variety.
Rawhid bones - Cheap, she likes them a lot, consumes even the largest ones in under an hour and I'm worried about chunks breaking off and creating a choking hazard
Compressed rawhide - Still pretty cheap and more safe, goes through a 12" bone in about three hours
Churpi Chews (Himilayan yak-milk thing) - Loves the taste but they're expensive and she consumed about half the large one
I got her in half an hour so I'm using it as a super special reward instead of leaving around for her to work on whenever she is in the mood
Bully Sticks - Loved them, went through a 12-inch stick in half-an-hour
Nylabone - I had some manner of nylabone and she really wasn't interested for a long time. The one time she did go to work on it she created little bits that stuck up and cut her gums so they went into the trash
Hooves - Had one when she was a puppy but it kind of stank
Rope bones - Pulls them apart with ease and I'm worried about strings passing through undigested that might force me to...uh...intervene. These just get used to play tug
Elk Antlers - The only thing I've found that's worthwhile. I got her one six-months ago and she has barely made a dent in it. She will pretty much choose to chew anything else if she has the option. It's a bit of a problem because she will chew on her non-chew toys and if I try to re-direct her with an antler, she just isn't interested. So, I have to keep any of her toys not meant to be chewed on out of her reach to keep them from getting torn apart instead of letting her decide what she wants to do.
She gets plenty of exercise, plenty of mental stimulation, and doesn't really chew on anything she isn't supposed to (except for her toys). Sometimes she is just in a mood to chew on something all night and I can't think of what else to try.
I'd like to find something that won't stain my carpet, won't break the bank (or at least gets a lot of use for the money), and will last more than a week. Bonus points if it doesn't stink. She will go to town on just about anything else I give her but she goes through them so fast I don't feel like I'm getting any value out of it.
