Nylabone Dura Chew
Advantages: Very tough, durable
Eddie the dog is a very stereotypical dog, he likes bones. You will always see this boy with a bone in his mouth, chewing away, he carries them with him everywhere he goes and its the only thing that will make him sit and cuddle with us in the evenings if he has a bone in his mouth. He's a working cocker spaniel so he has tons of energy in him and one of the things he really likes to do is chew. When he was a puppy this usually meant on our wooden table legs so we needed to find something else for him to chew on and bones became his favourite thing. He usually has a rawhide bone to chew on but I limit them as I don't want him eating too much of them each day so we decided to get him one of these Nylabones.
A nylabone is made of tough, durable nylon and it really is very tough. The company say that these bones are designed for powerful chewers and thats definitely something I agree with. The bone is really quite hard and if you drop it on the floor it makes a big bang. Its almost like it is made of a very hard plastic. Eddie has had this nylabone for probably almost a year now and he has hardly made any dents in it at all. There are a couple teeth marks in it but that is about it. At times he really gnaws on this and gets his teeth around it and gives it a really good chew. You can see that it definitely satisfies his need to chew.
This version is shaped liked a bone and has little indentations on each side, like a bone joint would. I like that it looks authentic as I'm sure its more tempting for Eddie than just a normal boring looking toy or bone. The company say that this ridge and nub design provides dental stimulation and chewing satisfaction and actually Eddie just had his yearly injection/check up at the vets and they said his teeth were in really good condition so maybe this bone has been helping with that. Apparently bristles raised during chewing help clean teeth and control plaque & tartar build-up so I think it probably is helping.
You can buy the bones in different flavours too but I think the flavour must be like high pitched whistles to a dog, I can't smell the flavour of this bone although Eddie is quite attracted to it. He has the bacon version although it also comes in chicken and liver too. You can purchase different sizes too depending on the size of your dog and they are available from Pets at Home and start at £5.
