    So I've been trying to do lots of research on bones for my dogs [​IMG]

    what do ya'll think the best bones to give are?

    I like rolled and pressed rawhide, and so do my dogs.

    What do ya'll use?

    ETA: Bones are for a black lab (Shes about as big as a pitbull though) A jack russel terrier mix and a border collie [​IMG]

    I don't give bones unless they are raw cause I heard that if they are cooked they splinter and my puppy is only 7 lbs so most of them are too big.I bought her a denta bone for her teeth and she won't touch it.

    Nylabones are the only ones that last more than a week around here. I own a Pit Bull and two Pit Bull mixed muttsies. Depends really on what kind of dog you have.

    Yea, I know some splinter. So I'm kinda weird about giving them REAL bones.

    I bought a denta bone to and my dogs wont touch it either.

    Only my border collie, and the only time she'll chew on it is when she has no rawhide! [​IMG]

    I give mine all kinds just no cooked bird bones.
    Mostly hog legs, cow nuckels an ribs. That what the feed store keeps for dogs.

    Knuckle bones last a good while. They take our dogs a week or two at least, and they're heavy chewers.
