How do I choose the Best Dog Chew for my dog?

John Palmer-Snellin Director Staglers Deer Antler Dog Chews

How do I choose the best dog chew for my dog is something we hear quite often. Fortunately, our quality is proven and has been tested by many dogs!

We support dog owners who are unsure about which deer antler dog chew is best for their dog after we have been recommended by friends who walk dogs together or at puppy training classes. Because the most common complaint we hear is the inferior quality of the big chain store pale chews, our mission is to give quality.

Fortunately for you, with our expertise available to you, once a Stagler’s Client, you’ll keep coming back for more, but not too often as they last too long!

So we decided to let you speak for us. Here are some real-life conversations we’ve had to help you.

JUST ASK JOHN: Please would you let me know roughly the minimum length of your extra-large Staglers. The reason I ask is that my Golden Retriever adores deer antlers, but after having had surgery on both her front legs finds it difficult to hold shorter ones (under about 15cm/6”). Sadly, too many of the antlers that are sold are too short for her to enjoy them to the full.

The Answer: As chews are individual by selected upon weight John picked out some particularly long extra-large chews for this beautiful dog! Everyone is happy.

JUST ASK JOHN: Where is my nearest Supplier to us in SP2?

The Answer: Let your fingers do the quick buying as you only have to pop online and take 4 simple steps and John will have your choice of chews on their way to you quickly.

JUST ASK JOHN: Hi. I run puppy/dog training classes in West Dorset. In the past, you sent me some A5 leaflets to hand out to my clients – I have now almost run out. As a fan of stag antlers, I would like to continue to provide this info. Please could you send me replacements?

The Answer: Absolutely! I am passing you way at the end of the week and could drop them in, or we can let Royal Mail take the strain!

Personal Service Is Why We are The Best

How do I choose the best dog chew for my dog?

JUST ASK JOHN: I have a Viszla who adores antlers, they are the only thing that last, I need a decent size for her which is difficult to find in the shops, when they get chewed down I like to put peanut butter into the hollow areas as an extra treat so I want a good shape, her current one has 3 hollow ends but is getting small.  Sorry to be fussy, can you recommend?

The Answer:

  • Personally I’d suggest an XL as Vizslas are pretty powerful chewers. I have a number of perfect chews similar to the one you describe with 3 openings.
    I hope this helps, Regards John
  • And…… Because we like to go the extra mile – perhaps you’d like to pick your own from the attached pic, with number 1 being at the top and number 10 at the bottom……???
  • Wow! Numbers 3 and 7 please, so grateful to you and I’ll be back for more I’m sure.
  • That’s no problem at all – I’ll pack it myself and ensure it’s just as you ask!!
  • Just taken delivery of Elsa’s antlers, she will be happy for hours, thank you so much for the fridge magnet and the chocolates, my mum and I will have them this afternoon with a cup of coffee.  So glad I found you on the internet!    Many thanks and I will definitely be back for more. Kind Regards G

The Size of Deer Antler Dog Chew often depends upon the age and size of your dog.

Labradors Love Chews But Which Size?

JUST ASK JOHN: Please help, I have a 29kg Labrador 2yrs old, what size should I buy for her, please?

The Answer: Sounds like your lovely Labrador deserves a Looney Large because of the size and the interesting features.

Happy Client:  Thank you for your reply, John. I have placed an order for a ‘looney large’ and if possible would like a stick type shape with some points on the end.
I see from the payment details that should I make regular purchases I will have to open a PayPal account. I’m hoping there is an alternative way to pay, over the phone perhaps? as I don’t want a PayPal account. Thanking you in anticipation for your helpful reply and for my order.

Your Dog Deserves Quality, You’ll Save Money In The End

JUST ASK JOHN: Hello, my border terrier loves chewing on antlers. I buy them from a pet stall at the local market. The size, shape, and weigh of the pieces varies considerably. B is a long-legged border terrier weighing 10kg, a fit and active little dog who is a vigorous chewer. As well as value for money, I’m looking for something to challenge him. What would you recommend? Thanking you in anticipation. A

The Answer: Hi A, many thanks for your inquiry.  Due to the fact that I have found some market stalls sell antler off-cuts, which consequently vary greatly in both size and quality (and it’s often uncertain where they were sourced from).

First of all, for a Border Terrier, I would suggest a size MEDIUM (we also have a 9kg Border!!), or probably a size Large if you wanted to go bigger.  Our current range of ‘Loony Large’ is good value and a little cheaper than the normal Large.  If you let me know what particular shape your dog likes I can pick it myself – some people always want a straight ‘stick’ type, others want a few points, some want a chunky stubby one – they’re all different!!

I hope this helps.

Creative Crafts From Antler

JUST ASK JOHN: I have recently started pen turning and would be interested in purchasing some antlers to make some pens with. Each pen I make needs two small pieces 60mm x 20mm minimum. Do you have smaller offcuts that we be too small for a dog that I could use (happy to buy them) or which size do you think would be best for me from your normal stock (can’t see any actual sizes in measurements on there)? John M

The Answer: We have a number of craftsmen and women who make beautiful things from Antler. Of course I can help.
