I'd recommend getting some pressed rawhide bones, they can chew them for hours and it might help him chill if he's showing anxiety and prevent other things getting chewed.

just remembered the day my postman, who is a fan of Douglas came to say hello and ended up with his hand in a big cavernous labbie mouth, and when get got his hand back there was a huge globule of saliva dangling off his wrist..

No! Not rawhide! The rawhide doesn’t digest, is often made by bleaching said rawhide and comes from very unethical places. Plus I see a rawhide veterinary horror story just about every day online. You’re best off getting raw bones from a butcher (I get beef rib bones for Wilf when he stays).

shit I didn't realise there were so many blockages caused by rawhide bones. The ones I get are quite expensive and from a reputable online seller, and I thought they were just basically very chewy protein. oh well!

NB: Bully Sticks have similar issues if you have a fast chewer though puppies go berzerk over them.
NB to NB: they smell real bad tho

he's absolutely gorgeous, that much was evident the second I saw him as a pup - but he's maturing into a stunningly handsome dog. Does anyone know if those poundshop butcher's bones in cellophane wraps are good or bad? or what are the best doggy chewing treat options?

pretty doggos!

We used to do the king size kong with frozen food/peanut butter in it.

Yeah, Kongs here too.

xp to Calzino: Those things can splinter if the dog crunches too hard on them, so they're not great for very chompy dogs. We're fine because we've got two weak-mouthed dogs and one Jack Russell who is mighty and strong but small.

Yes, an old housemate of mine used to call our labrador Lord Crustynosebridge because he always had a big dried flob across his muzzle. So debonair!

I've just been reading that you should avoid white rawhide dog chews because they are the ones that are likely to have had extensive chemical treatment. The ones I get are a yellow ochre colour and don't stink like crap, so I feel a little bit better now. But the choke hazard is obv not good.

xp and when they shake that head - duck and cover!

I had a 70 lb boxer and he did pretty well on bully sticks, but he also had little dolphin teeth. He would just snap almost everything else in bits and then swallow them whole so never touched rawhide.

Bones from an actual butcher. If they’re not giving them away outright, they will cost pennies, and not be origin-suspect like those from Poundland (also: raw every time). Get a bunch and lob them in the freezer. That’ll do for any germs and your dog will be BUSY for at least three hours.
