Dog bones satisfy a natural to chew and also exercise the jaw as well as relieve boredom. You can even make homemade dog bones and there are several recipes out on the internet where you can bake them yourself for a homey treat for fido! You can even buy organic bones, natural bones and gourmet bones (these make great gifts!). For other types of chews not shaped like a bone, you can buy cow hooves or pigs ears – sounds awful but dogs love them!

When selecting dog bones, you want to make sure they are made from 100% natural rawhide. You can get them in traditional bone shape, and even ones filled with beef, cheese or peanut butter. If you are worried about your dog choking (rawhide can ribbon and cause your dog to choke), you might want to try “Roar-Hide” made by Nylabone it can’t ribbon and is high in protein and low in fat. If your dog is an aggressive chewer, you could try a compressed rawhide bone, they come in many different flavors and are very durable.
