I think my husband has some on his phone. I will try to get some up soon. The unbreakoball is still alive and well. My friend recommended a nylabone. We bought one of those this week and it is also pretty sturdy. We got one that had a rubber ball with "teeth" which I stuck some cat kibbles in (another one of her faves) and she chewed a small hole in it but the bone part is holding its own too. Thanks for the bacon grease idea, I have a jar of that stored in my fridge for corn chowder. I can spare some.
She has figured out the unbreakaball. She picks it up by sticking her canines in the holes. It hangs out of the side of her mouth. I am trying to get a pic of her with it, but she won't stay still long enough. I have added her pic to my profile. I am not too computer savvy and couldn't get it on here any other way.... The bacon grease was a good idea, she likes it
This is why I call my two bullies (bull terriers) the "Little Monsters" - LOL! I didn't see where you had listed the age of your little monster, but I have noticed the chewing issue eases up some as they grow older. My older bullie, Pearl, is 7 now and is only interested in the rawhides that were mentioned in another post. If you ask her if she wants a rawhide, she jumps up and comes to attention immediately! Unfortunately, they only last about 10 minutes with these two, but it is a highlight of their day. My younger pup, Noodle, is 3 now and has slowly stopped chewing everything in sight over the past year. She still likes to abscond with anything she finds on the floor or in the laundry basket, but she just takes it to her bed and leaves it there now. I also picked up a couple of the Nylabones and I rub some peanut butter on the ends of them once in a while for something different. They like them, until the peanut butter is gone, then leave them lying around. As if you can't tell, I love me bullies!
I have a chewer too, Shar pei/bulldog mix. I make homemade dog biscuits and for him I shape them into large sausage size rolls, bake for about 40 minutes and then let sit in the oven overnight to really harden it up. When he sees that he loves to take it outside and spends about an hour playing and chewing it. It's good for cleaning his teeth, but not too hard to cause damage and because I use good fresh ingredients it's healthy too.
just sending an update....now that the weather is getting better, she is getting outside more, so we are chewing a little less and digging holes a whole lot more. She has figured out how to pick up the unbreakoball now, by hooking her upper and lower canines on one side of her mouth into the holes in the ball. It is so funny! The ball hangs out of the side of her mouth, but she looks so proud of herself! We found some Kong tennis balls that squeak and she likes those. They come 3 in a package so when she mutilates one, I have another one ready. Thanks again for all of the ideas!
