I stay as far away from rawhides and Nylabones as I can. Rawhides in particular can cause blockages, and they aren't completely digestible, so they can really muck up your pup's gut (say that 3 times fast, HAH). I love Kongs because of their versatility (Mario doesn't want anything to do with them, but Nino's current favorite is canned food on the bottom, low-sodium chicken broth on top, and a dab of coconut oil on either end to plug things up).
As far as edible chews, bully sticks are a perpetual favorite. Both of mine love them. Another they love is beef scapula. As far as antlers go, moose seems to be the consensus here, as they are the softest and the easiest on the teeth. As a special treat, I give raw, meaty bones once or twice a month. Variety is really important when it comes to chews, because it can stop boredom, and each benefits the teeth in a different way.
