Dog Item Chew List
Dog Chews & Feeding
MAKE SURE TO CHECK BONES, CHEWS AND TOYS DAILY!!! BROKEN PIECES DISCARD
Choose an appropriate size chew toy for your dog, and remember if you have different sizes of dogs in your home to check for proper size on all dogs. Be mindful of dogs that like to guard their possessions, you always want to make sure everyone is safe and never leave dogs alone with edible bones for safety!!!
What is proper size?
Turn the bones or toy sideways in front of the dogs nose if you see it showing on both sides get one size up for safety.
Deer & Elk Antlers
Bison & Bull Horns
Salmon Skin (rolled works great)

Primal Raw Bones (Keep Frozen)
(When giving in the yard watch out for sunshine baking the bones if that happens there are considered cooked and need to be discarded!!!)
RAW Frozen Marrowbones (Whole Foods freezer or ask for the Grocery store Freezer)
NEVER FEED COOKED, SMOKED & GRILLED BONES!!!
Be sure to wash your hands after handling raw meat!!!
When the dog is done chewing on the bone discard the bone.
Watch for sunshine cooking the bone if giving in the yard.
Cooked, Smoked or grilled bones become very brittle and can hurt your dog!!! Always feed Bones in Raw condition.
NO RAWHIDE!!! (Indigestible for dogs)
There are now a lot of different NO HIDE chews to consider for longer chew times. Check with your local pet store for chews MADE IN USA
Benebones & Nylabones (lots of different sizes and options for chewing always choose larger sizes and not restricting the mouth choose open bones, check teeth for heavy chewers if there are appropriate)
Kong (visit my website under M’s Manuals How to stuff a Kong or Kong.com for recipes)
with Kong rubber toys there are a lot of size options when in doubt always choose larger size, there are also different Kong’s for different chew requirements.
