I've been meaning to come on and introduce myself officially but unfortunately (as most of you know) with a new puppy there's not a lot of free time! Intro coming later.... but in the meantime, my little guy(Leo) is not easily distracted. He wants to be with us all the time and seems to prefer nothing more than spending time with us. I'm looking for advice on chew sticks that might keep him busy for a little. I've been on the forum for the while and have pretty much tried most of the suggestions mentioned:
Himalayan chews - he doesn't like them (despite the fact it seems most Havs LOVE them)
Nylabone dura chews - flavored and unflavored - he had zero interest.
Stuffed Kong - work fine for the most part.. but I'd l
Antlerz - i bought 3 of them, he only likes 1 and basically ignors the other 2.
The only things that seem to keep him busy that he goes NUTS for are bully sticks but I only want to give those to him once in a blue moon.
Anyone else has have a picky Hav? What works for your Hav? Help!
I'm throwing in a picture for good measure. Once you see that adorable face you'll most definitely want to help. Lol!
Nina only like Duck jerky. She is now also interested in chewing on a cow ear. It took several days until she figured out how to chew it and now she loves it. I hope it will deter her from chewing on us and the furniture.
Actually the pig ears looked more appetizing but they were brown and I was concerned it would add to staining on Nian's beard. But yes they looked good. LOL Thankfully the ones I saw had no hair on them any more.
Have you tried Hoofies (hooves?). Sometimes they come stuffed, but I get the empty ones. They smell SO BAD, but I guess that's why Timmy liked (liked) them. He's not really into chewing stuff so much these days.
+1 on the hooves. smoked ones don't smell as bad. all the other chews, rawhide, bullstick (bull's penis btw), give all my dogs the runs. not the hoof though. about $1 a hoof, if you buy in bulk it's 50 cents.
Wow... you guys just reminded me that I bought a hoof for him when he first got here. He seemed afraid of it so i removed it. I just dug it up and gave it to him and so far success! He just rubbed his body all over it and is happily chewing on it! Thanks for the suggestions!
I'm definitely going to look into pig ears and cow ears. I hadn't even considered those! Do you guys just pick them up at your local pet store or is there a certain website you purchase them from?
