Best toys/bones for teething pup?

Little Dottie is 6 months old and has her teeth coming in which means she is chewing on chairs, furniture and my older dog. Can anyone suggest good toys for teething? She has a little Nylabone, but doesn't chew on it much. Also, I don't want to give her rawhide as she can't digest it. What else?

Thanks, Karen!

I will try that! I just took a little mini-Kong toy and put a little bit of chicken in it; Dottie is very occupied biting and chewing to try to get it out...

Mine get braided bully sticks or antlers. On places you don't want them chewing, like baseboards, walls, wood furniture, you can put Vicks Vaporub on it and they won't chew it. Teething doesn't last that long but you don't want to start habits.

I just got Otis a split antler. We were out of town, and I gave it to him as we traveled. He hasnt gotten car sick for a while, but, he went to town on that antler. Just as we pulled in the driveway, he started throwning up. We got him out in time. I looked at the antler, and he had chewed quiet a bit of the inside out of it. Do you think that could have made him sick? He loved it, but dont know if I should give it back to him.

Kallie loved (and still does) her deer antlers when she was teething. But I got the whole ones, not the split ones. She's 8 months old & still chews on her antler every morning. Oh, and the braided ropes! I swear there's probably baby teeth embedded in hers, she chewed it so much.

my dogs love nylabones. When she was that age the adult ones were too hard, get the puppy one and make sure you get one that has some flavor (i think i had one that was bacon flavored). Bitter apple spray will deter gnawing on unwanted things (like table legs).

I love what you named her! Mine had flossies, but you have to get the thicker ones. Some of the are really flimsy and I always worried about them swallowing a big piece. Anything other than furniture, books, and a vacuum cleaner cord (which is what mine got into).

Maddie hid all her chew's and she still does. Zoey loves bully sticks and just in the past three mo likes nylabones bones. I think my shoes were their favorite. I started a bad habit of giving them baby carrots I didn't know they don't digest well but they love them.

Lola is going through the same thing! She does like the frozen towel but she LOVES ice cubes! She also likes having her teeth brushed which I think is like a little massage for her gums.
