Nylabones For Dogs

My girl, Alex, loves to chew on nylabones.  I usually buy nylabones of different sizes and flavors and leave them all over the house so she and the dogs that stay with us can enjoy them.

Alex is a chewer and she’ll probably be like that for the rest of her life since she is already 10 1/2 years old.  My first dog, Casey, on the other hand only cared to chew on bones until he was about 3 years old.  It really depends on the dog.  Some are chewers and others are not.

Sienna, just like Alex, is a chewer.  She tends to favor the bones that are almost her size.

I like nylabones because they: help maintain teeth clean; drain some energy; and serve as another toy.

Right after our walk, Sienna loves to grab one of the bones and chew on it.  After she has done this for awhile she is out like a light.

Make sure that regardless of wether you get bones, toys, rawhide, etc., for your dog you supervise her to make sure you avoid any accidents that could lead to a visit to the vet.
