Just Ask John about Dog Chews.
Being able to give constructive, educational feedback to your question about Staglers Deer Antler Dog Chews make me happy. From asking which Chew for which breed of dog, puppy training issues, where to stay in Dorset with your dog, the questions keep coming. So we decided to post some of them because our goal is to have happy, healthy dogs. Each month I will share some of the questions I have been answering for dog owners.
‘How can I stop my puppy chewing up the house?’ – Well, luckily, we’ve got that one covered!! Puppies love to chew, it is often an outlet for their energy, to reduce stress or simply a desire to help the new teeth come through.
Our ‘Lazy Dog’ range, are specifically designed for teething dogs (or older ‘Lazy Dogs’!). Hand cut down the middle of a ‘tube’ of antler, means that your teething pup can get at the slightly softer middle. This avoids any damage to those emerging ‘adult teeth’, and – leaves all of that lovely wood in your kitchen alone!!
‘What age can my dog start having Original Staglers?’
Our Original Range are ideal once you are happy the adult teeth are coming through, (usually around 16-18 weeks). As with all chews we still advise to monitor and do not leave them with new Staglers for long periods of time.
Well, this is a tricky one as we are all different on our choices for our pooch’s…
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 bigger more powerful breeds and ‘chewers’ need to be looking at the big chews, fortunately they still last, giving value for money.
Retriever/Lab (both incredibly powerful chewers) should really be looking at XL or Jumbo
Staffs, Bulldog and many of the mid to large 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!
On the flip side I know a couple of customers who are more than happy to give their Malamute or Staffie a Small or a Lazy Dog chew. This is purely as a supervised after-dinner treat, knowing that it probably won’t last them that long, but hey, they’re worth it.
Ultimately – if you’re a little unsure, then please ask. We’ve got many years’ experience and are more than happy to answer any queries, most of which will have been asked in the past.
That’s all for today folks, signing off to create more delicious chews. The Nation’s dogs can not be kept waiting
