As far as pig ears go yes they are better but too much and the dog will have the runs and gas like you can't believe! I would try to stick with nyla-bones they are the best for a dog. Some dogs are not that fond of them but keep trying different sizes, flavors, and give the little guy the softer nyla-bone type be- cause he is so young.
I also do not recommend any rubber chew toys with squeeks in them. They will only choke on those pieces of rubber as well or even the sqeek itself.
Cow hooves are ok but there again they splinter and crack after awhile. Not to mention they STINK when they are wet. My dogs love them but I don't so out they go.
There is a new product on the market called Busters Cube and what it is is a cube that you put pieces of food or treat into it. The dog will have to roll it around on the ground for the pieces to fall out of the certain slots. I think this would be ok as long as you monitor the amount of food intake. Too much and your dog will be chubby!!
Any new toy you give to your pup should always be monitored by
you. Believe me anything could happen and it is important that
you are standing by. It is also fun to watch! Good Luck in your shopping
I know I still have to do mine X 4 dogs! Also I forgot to mention raw hide
doesn't really digest that well either. I saw a dog once that had to have surgery
because they thought it was a tumor. Turned out to be a glob of
raw hide about the size of a baseball in his stomach. Not worth
it if you ask me.
