Jaxx goes nuts over bullies and will finish them in 2-3 days

LS what size of that Nylabone do you buy? I see there are 2 sizes one Souter and one wolf. I have heard you say before how great they are but I just wanted to get the right size

I get wolf! It's big and heavy, but even Bella chews on it!
They used to make small ones, they came in a set of two,
perhaps on a different website. Those were perfect for Chis.

And the dinosaur comes in one size but random shapes, it's
awesome, all my dogs love them. I think I've tried all the toys
out there.

I dont want to freak you guys out but I just read a story about someone's dog having to get surgery because they had a chunk of Nylabone stuck in their intestines. I just want you to be aware.

There I found them Amy! These are super tiny, but still durable. Best for dogs under 5lbs imo.

There are a LOT of crappy Nylabones out there, especially the edible ones.
These are the only two I trust and recommend. But just like with any chew,
a dog should be supervised.

My troop never made a dent in them. After a few weeks, I'd just toss them. You'd see the very end gnawed at a bit, but that's it. They darn sure gave it a whirl though. Watching them you'd think they were really doing some damage. I kept mine in the fridge in between chewing.

But your babies are so tiny- their itsy little teeth could barely make a dent! Sooo precious.

I give bullysticks to Kerri and she literally would never stop chewing on them so I take them away after a set time, so I don't know how long she would take for a 6 inch, but I imagine it would be an hour and a half or so. Also I am not a fan of greenies at all either, or edible nylabones. I do but the ultra durable nylabones and the dogs chew on them from time to time. You just have to watch nylabones and if they can get a hunk off and might swallow it take them away. I am not a fan of the ones that supposedly disappear after a while and the dog just passes little bits of nylon, that freaks me out. But the ones LS recommended are good ones, and they do have other products out there that I like.
