Our 12 week old is like most other lab puppies crazy chewing biting ect. After buying over $50 in regular chew toys that he quickly looses interest in I got some rawhide type chews that he would actually stay busy with for an hour or so. Then come to find out they are not too healthy and can clog them up (all USA grass fed type). We also used some bully sticks which he really liked. Someone said these are not a true rawhide???
Antler halves were also suggested and I got one that he stays with for a few minutes but it is not as desirable to him as something stinky. what are you all using and finding success with?
Do you use kongs? they are great. you can fill them and freeze to make them last longer, my lab is a strong chewer but all her kongs have lasted.
Yes, we have one with turkey broth in the freezer now along with a couple of socks with water and turkey broth freezing in zip locks. Unfortunately neither have kept his interest too long.
Piper isn't a huge fan of kongs either. She prefers rawhide, hard bones that are filled with stuff and her huge stuffed toys she likes to rip apart.
Ruby like bull horns and watter buffalo horns too
She loves these for hours on end and can last her 9 month old choppers about a week.
They kinda smell but peace is worth it.

I think nylabones and over-feeding your dog with a filled Kong is silly. Mine have done well with marrow bones (puppies get the plain ones with no marrow left) and rawhides. USA made is fine. Granted some dogs have super sensitive tummies and can't eat rawhide, mine LOVE them. I give them to puppies and seniors alike. I like bully sticks, but with the adults they are super expensive for the quick chew they get. Merrick makes some natural smoked bones, those are OK too.
Tango likes sticks to chew on......he'll pick them up outside and carry them home.
He has bones too but the stick is better for playing tug of war with and he rarely pays the bones much attention.
Some other notes
My vet told me to get the biggest rawhide I could .
Then as they start to come apart cut the lose stuff off
Moses also likes deer elk anthers.
I am not sure @ what age a pup can start to give you pup raw bones.(maybe someone can advise)
I started @ 7 months with Moses (these really give you some peace too)..
Maybe a frozen carrot too now and then
I was always told to avoid rawhide as it could cause digestive problems.
