Great Puppy Chew: Benebone


Benebone durable dog chewRecently, Pip tried a Benebone. She likes it – a lot. So do my canine houseguests.  The slight upward arc of one of the legs makes it easier for dogs to handle and, apparently, to get at just the right angle.

Right this instant, six-month-old Pongo is delightedly chewing on one and has been for over 5 minutes. Good puppy!

When Pip is in the mood to chew, the Benebone is her go-to choice walking past previous favorites to find it. I’ve waited a few months to write this blog to makes sure that pattern wasn’t just about novelty but was actual preference. It’s preference. So, Benebone joins my list of durable dog toys.

Benebones are a bit “softer” than the old favorite, Nylabone dura chews. I’ll be interested to see if that subtle amount of “give” causes fewer dental problems with susceptible dogs. At the time of this writing, there are no complaints of broken teeth over on Amazon, as there are for other hard chews. The complaints that are there are about lack of dog interest but that can be resolved by teaching your dog to enjoy them.

Check out made-in-the-USA Benebone toys—chicken, peanut butter or bacon flavor—both regular and mini sizes as well as several new shapes. Let me know what your dog thinks.
