Antler Dog Chews

If stuffed plush toys don’t last very long in your house before they’re gutted, it’s time to try a treat that’s made to withstand your dog’s teeth - antler chews. For those new to the idea of antler bones for dogs, you’ll have to trust us that it’s not as strange as it sounds. They’re all-natural treats that give your furry friend an outlet for his instinctual behaviors. And in case you were wondering, they are naturally shed by forest-dwelling and mountain-roaming elk, deer and moose and regrown in the summer. In the wild, all types of creatures gnaw on shed antlers as a source of nutrients, including squirrels, mice, foxes, coyote, beavers, otters and bears. So it was only a matter of time before we started seeing antler chews for dogs. And that’s great news for your resident chewer. Long-lasting antlers work great as special rewards. They can also be used to help relieve separation anxiety or keep your pup focused on his treat instead of barking or getting into things he shouldn’t. Antler chews provide a tasty and renewable natural treat option that most dogs just can’t get enough of. Aside from exercising the jaw, dog antlers are full of calcium and phosphorus that are excellent for healthy teeth and bones. As an added benefit for you, antler chews for dogs are odorless, unlike some bully sticks you might have had the pleasure of smelling. And they won’t make a mess on the floor or carpet, like bones are known to do. When you’re ready to pick out the perfect antler, think about the kind of chewer your dog is. If you have a puppy or a moderate chewer, check out the assortment of elk or split antlers for dogs. Elk has more delicious marrow and won’t splinter easily. Split antlers expose the marrow for a highly palatable treat, which makes them great for puppies. If your dog has never had an antler before, start him off with an elk or split antler. He’ll soon find out how fun it is to chew, and you can move him up to a tougher antler later if you need to. More intense chewers need hard, dense antler chews like solid deer or moose. With solid antlers, your dog will have to work much harder to get to the marrow inside. Deer and moose dog antlers are ideal for pups with a strong bite because they won’t finish them minutes after they’ve started. So what kind of chewer is your dog? Maybe you have a couple of light gnawers and one super chomper. Chewy has an antler that’s just right for each of them. Our top brands gather only grade A or B antlers that are more palatable and less likely to splinter.
