Deer Antlers

I can not tell you how many people told me that Deer Antlers are great for dogs and last forever. Both our girls are excessive chewers and can destroy anything. I have yet to find something they can not tear apart. So after hearing how awesome these Deer Antlers are, I finally broke down and bought Summer one for her birthday.

Bad idea.

If I hadn't taken it away they would have finished it within hours. HOURS.

I don't think that comes close to forever. Man do people exaggerate. That or my dogs are just ridiculous chewers.

Moral of the story - if you have an aggressive chewer do not spend a ridiculous amount of money on a Deer Antler like I did. You're welcome.


  1. Haha--I sympathize! I've spent pots of money on dog chews that were supposed to last forever and were gone in an hour too. Now I resort to rope chews and multiple bonies and kongs filled with peanut butter and frozen. They don't last long, but are cheap to provide a bunch of!

    Nylabones also really do last a long time--I love the Dental Dinosaur and the dogs seem to like it too:)

    1. Oh yes! My pittie loves rope chews! I'll have to go get one of those, I forgot they last much longer with her.

  2. When you do find something that will last a long time please let us know. We really enjoy chewing too!

  3. Thanks for the info. I was going to invest in some for my doggies who love to chew and chew!

  4. I was unimpressed by them too. Mya is a champion chewer...if it is edible she starts on it and will not stop until it is gone.

  5. Wow! I've been recommending antlers because I thought my dog was an aggressive chewer, and they last him a month or two per antler. Good to know that they aren't for everyone.
