Kong or Nylabone, only two sum what safe chew toys as far as I'm concerned. I also go to the butcher and buy large raw shank bones (beef) that they get to chew on once a week for a half hour or so, and then put them back in the freezer, they don't splinter like the cooked one's do and they keep there teeth nice and clean.

My new pup likes the elk antler chew toys from Chuck N Dons. Chews on it all the time and it looks like we bought it yesterday. They like to try and get the marrow out.

Where do ya get those elk antlwer chew toys? All she gets is sheds to play with, so this might work great. She has some sheds with skull caps an seems to really like those. Thanks boar

I give my lab small whitetail antler sheds to chew on. Those things are tough and she loves them.

She doesn't hunt sheds however...

There is no substitute for exercise. The more your dog gets the better it will behave. I have a boxer and she can not get enough.

Just an FYI. I had a dog break it's molar chewing on a cow hoof. It split the face off and the tooth needed surgery. It had to be split in 4ths, a flap done and so on. It was a 6000$ bill. Afterward they gave me a flier about chews and teeth. I was surprised, as I had no idea hard things were that bad. But raw hide chews only, and no more then ones they can chew up in 5-10 minutes or so. If it goes longer take them away. There are the ones with tooth cleaning paste right in them, I think they are CT chews. But any way, they acclimated the wear on older dogs teeth to all these chews as well. Those nyla things cow hoofs or bone items that are hard are the worst thing to give a dog for there teeth. Take it from a dental vet, not me. If you have doubt's or ?'s call you dental specialist at the vet.But extended chewing on these marketed items that are so numerous, will wear your dogs teeth down faster.

what did dogs do before dentists?

bahh sometimes this site just makes you scared to do anything. there is tons of talk out there of raw hide being bad for our dogs too. My pup needs something to do or else i go crazy i rotate between 3 things

1. sock with a empty water bottel in it (sometimes i put food in the bottom of the sock)

2. kongs with a frozen peice of bread with peantbutter spread on it

3. smoked beef hip knuckles (her favorite) the ones i buy come from lakewinds and are full or tendons and meat and stuff that is chewable off the bone when it gets down to bone i take it away and replace it with a new one. the stuff from the "pet marts" is junk compared to these bones.

    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!     
    • Males were on the beds last night on a lake here in the metro. Not my deal, so I let 'em be. Which means I didn't catch much at all compared to last week.   Oh well, be a couple weeks before the summer patterns start happening. Already a hint of cottonwood floating on the water though. *booooo*
    • I would agree with Purple.   Just add an inexpensive unit of your choice for the maps.   You could even use a cheap tablet with the navionics app on it for the mapping, if money was an issue.     You can buy a 7 inch generic (RCA) tablet for around 50 bucks.    A few bucks more gets a holder.
