This bone lasts a long time and is not stinky or slimy. Most dogs who pass through our house love these. CAREFUL: Watch out for older teeth!
You can never have too many breath bones! I get these small size and break in half for a dog-sized, "breath mint"
We LOVE these - first got them in a gift basket. Single-ingredient, long-lasting activity, NOT rawhide.
12" BULLY STICKS
A basic starter snuffle mat. Can use at meal time (dry food) to extend eating time or drop treats in for a rainy day activity.
A different style and good looking! Having a variety of engagement items on hand is helpful to keep your pup entertained.
STYLIN' SNUFFLE MAT
Fill with peanut butter, frozen veggies, squeeze cheese, treats. Perfect for crate training, a longer-term engagement toy.
Play tug of war with your dog, toss for them to chase, let two dogs play tug together (if they play nicely!).
