    Some dogs get the runs or have other problems with various treats. Lily can eat Greenies but cannot go near Booda Bones, Nylabone edibles, pig ears etc -- they give her horrendous runs. Leo can't eat Nylabone Edibles either for the same reason. Yet most dogs really enjoy these!

    One of my favourite treats remains the flat rectangles of rawhide made in Argentina that you can get at Petstop. Because they are thinks and flat chunks don't come off them and the dogs really just gnaw on them. They all like them. No smell either on the plain ones (not the flavoured ones).

    Me too. I always look for thick squares or rectangles so that they last forever and actually eat very little of it. Last time I was in a PetCo their "cookie buffet," where you bag up your own individual treats, included some good looking, thick ones and so we hand selected a bunch. Here, sometimes the pre-packaged rawhides are just too thin and the dogs are able to quickly soften them up and start pulling pieces off. I have some durable nylabones around, but the dogs realy like the rawhides better.

    When all of the problems arose about greenies before they reformulated I had to stop feeding them. Talk about trauma!! The guys were used to getting one after dinner. I substituted a piece of apple...and don't think they noticed!

    For those who order from sitstay.com I love the Merrick Texas Thick Chips. They last and both of the dogs enjoy them and don't get upset tummies.
