Nylabone Adult Wolf Chew
Advantages: Good dental health and a happy dog
Disadvantages: More expensive than some chews initially, but better value in the long run.
As some of you will already know, early last year my old staffy had to be put down and we ended up getting another staffy only a month later as we so missed having a dog about the house. Our new staffy was 15 months old and had already been re-homed a couple of times. She appears to have been trained to hunt, and was covered in deep puncture wounds, whether from a dog fight ( although she has no interest in fighting other dogs, that does not mean she couldn't get chewed up) or from a fox or badger, and had also broken her two upper canines. This meant she did not chew anything .... at first....
Now eight months on her mouth has healed and she can chew, in fact we have had to move her to pen when outdoors alone as she is eating the kids bicycles. But in the house she only chews this bone. Even when she could not chew, she carried it everywhere. I am sure she was well cared for once as she obviously knows pets at home is for toys and takes little time to find the toy department! This came in the post and I swear she smelled it through all the packaging. She has never before or since had an interest in post, but when this cam she was so excited and wiggling all over as I ripped open the parcel. She obviously loves this toy.
Although she could not chew at first, she has had this eight months and spends hours chewing on it at night. It is beginning to wear, and I'll get her a new one in a couple of months. But for anything to last months with a staffy who chews excessively is a miracle! It costs £6.25 including shipping from Amazon, but this is money well spent when you consider what a new suite could cost! It also is nice that she has something she enjoys so much, and even buying two a year is okay with me if the dog is going to get so much enjoyment from it.
In addition to being a fun toy and saving your furniture though, this is also a great dental aid. In fact having good quality chews is meat to be one of the major factors in how good your dogs dental health will be. Especially with my dog having two canines already broken off ( the vet advised us to leave them as the surgery to remove canines is complicated and painful) keeping her teeth clean is really important. As the dog chews this toy it creates little nubs which are meant to act as a tooth brush.
I have always kept a Staffy, and all my Staffies have had a nylabone chew. With most they would last a couple of years. All of them have enjoyed them, although none quite so much as Tora. I would recommend Nylabone to all dog owners, but if you have a strong jawed breed, they become an absolute must have item.
I am sure if Tora could speak she would give this 5 stars, so I will do the same.
Summary: I will always have a nylabone as long as I have a dog.
