Buffalo bones are great, but can be messy at first.

Agreed on the antlers! They’re the only bones we give our dog and they last her a few months, even with daily use. They sell them at petco where we live (southeast US). The ones we buy don’t have packaging, they’re loose in the baskets on the bone aisle.

Soup bones (also called marrow bones). They can be found at the grocery store for cheap. My dog loves them and once he gets the meat out, they can be restuffed and frozen with a variety of things. The actual bone part lasts a really long time

All my dogs have loved marrow bones too, and they’ve never been chewed up by any dog of any size.  It can be hard to find one small enough for a min-pin in the pre-stocked cases but if you ask the person behind the meat counter they can get little ones for you.  They are messy at first and I give it to the dog outside until he gets it cleaned up a little.

My toy size pup loves loves loves the red bacon flavored nylabone, hasn’t chewed one up.

My shihtzu will chew ANYTHING he can get his hands on. He also will eat whatever he chews apart. Thus, his chew toys consist mainly of edible chews. His favorite are pizzle sticks/bull penises/bully sticks/whatever your local petstore calls them. The only disadvantage to these is that they stink. It is a dried bull penis after all.

Another great one I have found is a himalayan chew. It’s really just a compressed stick of smoked cheese usually made from yak’s milk. As they chew it, it gets soft and they can eat it. I like them because they have like a smoky smell. When the piece has become too smal for them to chew, you can throw it in the microwave and it becomes a cheese poof that they can eat.

My dog also likes these chews called Whimzees, specifically the one shaped like a hedgehog. They’re supposedly made from potatoes and all natural ingredients. The downfall with these is that they get crumbly.

I was referring to buffalo bones like the cow soup bones that cherryiice referred too. A friend raises buffalo. I got some buffalo bones for my dog and some friend dogs. The four dogs loved them.

The closest is the one that is an actual femer bone.

I don’t know about prices, (I got mine cheap because the friend who raises buffalo didn’t really sell the bones as dog treats at first and kept the original prices for friends and family.)

I suggest visiting a local butcher shop or farmers market for the bones.

my dog lovvvvvvves bully sticks to chew on! We like to buy the Redbarn 7″ braided ones for our 40 lb dog. She usually chews on one for a couple of days to a week, depending on how chewy she’s feeling.
