You might want to set a time limit on the hoof time, as it's bigger than what he can consume in a sitting.

My dogs LOVE pig ears, but they all get the runs from it. if you want to cut a pig ear up, use garden shears, works great.

Hi Queryne. You are right, that is one cute little face, and I can certainly understand why you want to please him. I think one challenge of having a cute little Havanese is to not fall into spoiling them. They are so dang cute you just want to give them treats all day long. My little boy, age 7 months, loves bully sticks and pig ears the best. How come you don't want to give him too many bully sticks? Just wondering. They seem harmless enough, and he usually gets a few of those a week, plus a pigs ear. I'm sure you'll figure it out. :-)

Our Isabelle loves everything so I really can't help with the picky part. I do give her lamb ears. They are white, softer and smaller than the pig ears. I also give her a 5 inch porkhide twist stick. I buy in bulk online from bullysticks.com. 50 lamb ears for $54 and 50 twist sticks for $11. I'm sure there are other sites that offer the same for similar prices. Good luck finding something that works for you.

Thanks for chiming in Cap and Eileen.

Eileen to answer your question iv'e heard from lots of folks that bully sticks can be upsetting to their stomaches. I wish i could give it to him more i'd like to be careful. I wish he had more interest in something flavored and non-edible like Nylabone but of course that's not the case.

I am going to see how the hoof treats him. Stay tuned...

OMG! Lovin' me some Leo!!!! He's absolutely gorgeous!!! I got just the thing for you! Moose antler!!! Check out Acadia Antler....they have nice size samplers called "tasters" perhaps? They cost $5.00 Each. My girls don't like deer antlers, but adore the moose antler! And they last quite awhile!
