- As chunky as possible please for my dogs, 2 prolific chewers! ( who have always loved what you have sent)
- This is for my brother’s dog, a Springer Spaniel who has previously demolished antler in a short time. I am hoping from your information we can stall him somewhat with this hard supersize
- Dear John, as discussed please send the largest possible for my deerhound. Thank you.

‘How can I stop my puppy chewing up the house?’
Well, luckily, we’ve got that one covered!! We all know it is natural for puppies to love to chew. It is often an outlet for their energy. It can reduce stress. Finally, it is simply a desire to help the new teeth come through.
Our ‘Lazy Dog’ range, is specifically designed for teething dogs (or older ‘Lazy Dogs’!). I personally hand-cut down the middle of a ‘tube’ of the antler. Resulting in your teething pup having quick access to the slightly softer middle. This is the shock absorber ‘marrow’ which flexes during the rut. Therefore the softer middle does not cause any damage to those emerging ‘adult teeth’. It means your puppy will leave all of that lovely wood in your kitchen alone!! (*link to Lazy Dog Chews).
What age can my dog start having Original Staglers?’
Once you are happy the adult teeth are coming through, (usually around 16-18 weeks), then they can start on any of the chews in the ‘Original’ range. As with all chews we still advise to monitor and do not leave them with new Staglers for long periods of time.
‘Which size chew for my dog?’
Well, this is a tricky one as we are all different on our choices for our pooch’s…..
I know a couple of customers who are more than happy to give their Malamute or Staffie a size Small or a Lazy Dog chew purely as an after-dinner treat. Fully aware that it probably won’t last them that long, but hey, they’re worth it.
The bigger more powerful breeds and ‘chewers’ should ideally be at the larger end of the range – Retriever/Lab (both incredibly powerful chewers) should really be looking at XL or bigger, as would Staffs, Bulldog and many of the mid to large breeds. Moving up to the really big or powerful breeds (Rottweiler/Newfoundland/Ridgeback/English Bull Terrier etc), then perhaps start considering Jumbo, 9inch or 12inch – believe me, they’ll struggle to make a dent on those! Ultimately – if you’re a little unsure, then please ask.
Answering your dog chew questions
I’ve got many years’ experience and am more than happy to answer any queries, most of which will have been asked in the past, so don’t worry about feeling awkward, I am here to help! Just Ask John is my catchphrase and deer antler dog chews are my specialist subject!
In the main, for absolute value and to last as long as possible, it makes sense to match one’s dog to the chew. The easy way to do this is to mention your dog’s breed in the cart section. If I feel it is wrong I will let you know with a call or email.
