A natural raw bone. You can buy knuckle bones or larger marrow bones at the butcher or grocery store.

They are very good healthwise for your pup and they also help keep teeth clean. Best part is they can not be chew up in an hours.

Have you tried the non-edible Nylabone? My dog is what I'd call an extreme chewer & he's had one for months & he's barely bruised it. I'm sure most here will recommend raw bones like knuckle bones; however, since Ozzy goes through those in no time, I was advising on a long-term toy/chew bone instead.

This is the Nylabone that Ozzy has had for months:

They have a line of products they call "Durable Chews".

This isn't really a bone, but I found it was a really great chew toy. And it keeps the dog's teeth clean as well. Colbi has had them through her whole life; it seems to be her favourite toy!




Anyway, I thought these were pretty good for cleaning teeth (and doesn't "rip" apart easy!) if that's what you're looking for.

I second the natural marrow bones-nothing can beat the taste, it keeps them occupied for hours, they are less expensive than the other chews. But most of all, you know what is in it to 100 %.
Looking at the ingredient list for edible Nylabones
http://www.nylabone.com/assets/004/11070.pdf
I cannot say I am thrilled about the idea of giving my dog wheat starch.
And as far as the flexible "non-edible" ones go, they are made of a thermoplastic polymer which they do not name. The durable ones are made of nylon (aka polyamide) which is also a thermoplastic polymer. You might as well give your dog a chunk of processed melamine as far as I am concerned.

The knuckle bones are an excellent and safe choice, but the Durable Nylabones are an excellent alternative and have been my faithful standby's since the 70's. In fact I've gone through so many I wish I'd bought stock in the company.

I prefer the nylabones because they're safe, clean, always available, and don't leave grease stains on the carpet.

Actually I don't find any bones to be safe.My Maltese almost choked to death on a raw hide.I guess if your with them and watching a uncooked bone that is much bigger than there mouth might be safe.I just don't trust them
