    There is this:



    I keep the Nylabones in an airtight plastic tub with everything else so they pick up the smell which keeps the dogs interested -
    That's a great idea -- must try that. Mine have never liked nylabones much.

    I give my dogs rawhides but always check they are USDA certified beef hide.

    That's absolutely awful.

    We stopped giving our pup rawhides because our vet wasn't convinced about them, particularly for puppies. He recommended dried pigs ears instead. Aggie had hours upon hours of fun and chewing with the pigs ears. The vet said it was good for her teeth and better for digestion than rawhide.

    We stopped giving Byron the pigs ears or beef sticks because he'd get very agressive when he had them and growl at anyone who came near. He doesn't do that with rawhide or booda bones.

    Actually Aggie started getting a little aggressive with my fiancé when she had the pigs ear, but we took them off her and ignored her for a while and she stopped that quick smart. I think t hey just need a little reminder as to who's top dog. I used to pretend to eat out of her dish before I'd give it to her, or move it around while she was eating (the vet recommended this). She became much more easygoing around the pigs ears after that
