It would help to have one when you bring him home. That way you can begin teaching him immediately what's proper to chew on and what isn't.

Be sure it's small enough to get his mouth around it but not small enough to get caught in his mouth. As he grows you'll have to throw the smaller ones away and get bigger ones.

That's what we did when we had Amber, they saved the furnish from been chewed.

When my little puppies begin to play fight in the litter and run n walk, I get them some puppy sizes of nylabones to chew on till they leave. Then it is in all puppy kits to get a couple for their puppy as they only chew a lil bit and find something else. they are safe for them till they get big enough for larger ones. It is very healthy for the gums also. It helps not to have to brush the teeth so much too.

I get the very large ones for around $7.00 for the biggie ones now and they still lay and chew on them when bored especially during winter months.

Tilba didn't particularly like her nylabone. When we 1st brought her home she took a liking to Sooty's old chewed, muddy, nylon bone bought from K Mart. They are a lot cheaper as well.

We gave our pup a puppy nylabone on Saturday and had to take it off him 5 minutes later because he had eaten some of it! I know small chips can come off but he was well on his way to eating it which is not good! I plan to get him an adult one and hope that suits. He really liked it up until then!!

Another good chew toy is the kong. The black ones are the strongest. You can stuff them with the puppies kibble & seal the end with yoghurt, cottage cheese or sardines.

We have a kong but I am struggling to find anything to seal the end for lone enough. Because of his colitis he can't have anything other than his kibble. I had tried mushing the kibble with hot water and stuffing the kong and freezing it but it gave him the runs - something we need to avoid for obvious reasons!

I have taken to stuffing the end with a scrunched up piece of newspaper which he then chews up (but doesn't swallow luckily). I am hoping that when he is older his tummy will improve and we can give him something a bit more interesting.
