I'm looking for something my 15 week old Pembroke and 3 year old beagle foxhound can chew on that's healthy, not made in China (which goes without saying) won't break apart and cause a choking hazard, and will last for quite awhile.  Do you recommend Deer Antlers ?

What about the ones at this website:  Dog Antlers

My husband just goes to the woods and finds them.  Ellie even manages to maneuver them through the doggie door while we are gone.

We use antlers. Our Petsmart had them on sale one day so I grabbed a few. They are becoming a favorite fast, so I'm starting to think I should stock up on a few more!

We bought ours at http://www.chewy.com/dog/prairie-dog-antlers-elk-antler/dp/42157 The large size are 5 inches long, quite thick and the perfect size for a mature puppy or adult Corgi, in my opinion.   Someone told me they simmered their whole antlers in chicken broth and their pups immediately took an interest in them.  Mine chew the whole bones but clearly prefer the ones with the marrow exposed.  When I consider the cost of plastic type bones that a dog can chew on, or rawhide which a lot of people use successfully but I'm afraid to use, for me, it's a lot smarter to purchase deer and elk antlers.   If you're currently purchasing boxed dog bones, chicken jerky, or any other kind of treats for your dog to chew, you could switch to carrots and frozen pumpkin cubes, and take the money you save and use it towards antlers.   Dogs who grind their teeth on good sources like antlers, have naturally clean teeth, and the savings at the vet can be phenomenal.

Stumpy is 5 months old and is teething a whole lot so she's been chewing on everything- our trainer recommended the elk antler split for puppies. It's really good because it cleans their teeth also, Stumpy loves it(especially chewing on the exposed marrow)! No rawhide though because if you have an aggressive chewer it can make their gums bleed :/

We have bought Napolean two. They last longer than other bones we have tried. He seems to like them well enough although it probably does not smell as good as the beef bones. I agree the more exposed the marrow the better and he knaws more. The one he has now is not as exposed as the last one and this one is lasting longer. But then it is bigger then the last one too :)

Oh, I saw the split ones when I bought one to try... guess I should have tried that because he sure doesn't care about the whole one.   Might have to try splitting & smoothing it to see if he likes it that way...

Mine really like them but they have to be the ones that are cut in half to expose the marrow.

Kaylee enjoys her elk antler on and off with her other toys. They do last a long while. She's had her current one for about 4 months.

We love them at our house....looks like a great deal...might have to get more for the corgis here!

Bogart loves antlers, and there are others to get besides deer.  They last "forever" and are not smelly.
