Hi everyone

Just need some advice on good quality treats for chewing.

Molly is going through teething, she is 5 months old (has lost pretty much all of them, which is mad) she is soo good at chewing and getting rid of the loose teeth.

My problem is that her jaws and adult teeth are so strong that things dont seem to be lasting any time at all.

She has just turned 10 Kilo so i gave her a denta stick for the 10-25kg age range and it was gone within 2 minutes (no exaggeration i timed her) Like a knife through butter.

She wants to chew and loves having them but they just dont last, i have tried her on the smart bones as they seem to agree with her tummy but even the "special long lasting large bones"only lasted 5 minutes max.

She has her kongs but doesnt seem particularly interested in the filler kongs unless i sit and play with her with it. She has the teething kong but again isnt really interested.

Any top tips on things that will last, someone mentioned the antler bones but i wasn''t sure if these were any good and wanted some advice before shelling out the crazy money places charge for them.

Have you tried putting other fillers in the Kong? You could put anything you like in there, not just the 'proper' stuff.

Antlers, I'd get her a small one and see what she thinks. My guys got them from Christmas and loved them to start off with, but they were ditched in favour of real bones.

Ultimately, it's a question of trial and error, though. Different dogs like different things, and many dogs will like a specific toy for reasons we can't see. Millie's favourite is her Chuckit whistler ball, that she carries round chewing and I know Ian's dog Flo has her Stix.

Have a look through here, there might be some ideas for you:

Hi from Koda & I Smile Koda is a chronic chewer and demolishes everything within minutes - food, toys or other (& there's been plenty of 'other!' Laughing). I fill his Kong with BBQ'd meat & cheese diced small, seal the ends with peanut butter & freeze. I only give him frozen Kongs otherwise he devours them within 10 mins. He is also given frozen chicken drumsticks which he loves (they don't last that long though!), & I highly recommend the deer antlers/stag bars - Koda loves them ! But every dog is different so it will be a case of trial by error I think ? Good luck, let us know how you get on !
