Elk Antlers

Do you guys have any experiences with giving your Havs elk antlers? My local pet store just started carrying them and I'm wondering if they're worth the cost?

If not, what are some long lasting chews that your pups enjoy? I can really only get Oscar into cow hooves, but the stink so much! That's why I was interested in the antlers - they say they're long lasting and odor free.

Any opinions guys?

My two aren't thrilled about antlers - Cody will half-heartedly chew on one occassionally but that's about it.

I got some deer antlers at the Havanese Nationals in Chicago and Jillee and Gage love them. I orderd some more for them from the rescue sight. I really like them because they are ordor free. I would give it a try!

My girls love the antlers I ordered from Havanese Rescue store, http://www.havtohavit.com/ They also love the Merrick flossies.

Tucker doesn't chew anything much at all, but when he does the antlers are one of his favorites that I rotate through.

I bought the antlers at the HavtoHavit.com store as well and my guys reallly liked them - at first. They dont pick them up much anymore. I probably should put them away and give them back at another time so they think that they are new! I too got them because they dont stink.

Worth trying!!

Ditto for Kodi. It has lasted a long time, but mostly because he doesn't chew on it much.

My guys were not interested in them at first. The second time that I bought them, I had the company split them in half, then I took them home and soaked them in a bucket of water and left them mostly dry back out. Then they were like the greatest thing in the world. I only have only left and its been hollowed out. (I'm thinking that one is Desilu's since loves to chew but doesn't actually make much of dent in things with his little misalined teeth.)

Mine LOVE the antlers! I buy them all the time and have a stock of them so we don't run out.
