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

How do I choose the best dog chew for my dog is something we hear quite often, and we are happy to advise. We are often 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 Staglers Client, you need go no where else! An if you love doing your own research, check out our testimonials or our Facebook Feedback.

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

John is Happy To Help You, by Contact Us, Email or Phone

JUST ASK JOHN: Please would you let me know roughly the minimum length of your extra-large Staglers. The reason I ask is because 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 happy.

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

The Answer: Let you fingers do the quick buying as you only have to pop on line 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 Viszlas 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! Number 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 its 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

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.
A 😊
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 considerately. 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 enquiry.  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 its 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’ are 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 off cuts 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.

Sometimes it is the technical stuff that gets us!

JUST ASK JOHN:  I would like to order 3 products but l keep getting locked out..saying my e-mail not correct or password.its getting me so FRUSTRATED

The Answer: Hi M, I’ve just sent your email to our web guy to see if there’s a problem. If all else fails I can take an order over the phone. Will get back to you soonest. J Sent from my iPhone

Happy Client: Thank you for your assistance, I realise it was my human error but your personal phone service was great. M

Fast Delivery to Rival Amazon – We Do Our Best!

Happy Client: Follow up: Just to say “thank you” for the advice you gave me on Friday and the rapid delivery. Extremely well packaged and arrived today. Puppy is already getting to grips with his new antler. Hoping that he won’t mistake my oak furniture for his new wood root though. M

Due To The Volume Of Requests, We Cannot Give Stock Away, But Always Happy To Promote With Our Leaflets.

JUST ASK JOHN: Hi can I get any free sample you can offer for my 6 month old Labrador approximately 20kg and lost all his puppy teeth –

The Answer: Sadly we are unable to offer free samples to all the requests we receive.

JUST ASK JOHN:  I have a lovely litter of Cockapoo puppies . I am looking for some info leaflets to put in the puppies pack . I was wondering if you had any you would be happy to send me ? Thank you T

The Answer: Happy to help.

Just Ask John about Dog Chews

Border Terrier with Staglers natural deer antler Lazy Dog ChewJust Ask John about Dog Chews.

Being able to give constructive, educational feedback to your question about Staglers Deer Antler Dog Chews make me happy. Delivering the personal service sets Staglers apart, and I am proud of this.

Your Questions include: Which Chew for which breed of dog? Help, I have puppy training issues, Where’s best to stay in Dorset with your dog? Keep your questions keep coming! Because I can help, I 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.

‘Which size chew for my dog?’

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. This may feel expensive but fortunately they still last, giving you superb 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, go up a size.

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. How? by our contact us page, in the notes when you place an order or give me a call 01202 631734.

I’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 waitingStagler deer antler dog chew, tough pet treat

Staglers gains competitors customers

Staglers gains competitors customers

In recent years the rise in popularity of deer antler dog chews has seen the demand for the top quality, naturally dropped antlers, rise as the British public realise how many boxes they tick for their dogs.

We wanted to update you on a dramatic turn of events since March 2015 and what we are doing to ensure you remain supplied with Staglers. Currently the Chinese are unable to use their own deer antler, resulting in the Malaysian, Korean and Chinese medicine market buyers scouring the globe for raw antler. Due to the fact that China is unable to supply at the current time we have been inundated with enquiries from the UK, Europe and globally.

There isn’t a shortage of antler yet (but it is possible), the issue is quite simply by how much raw material has increased since March 2015, Grade A up by 100% since 2014. It has now become a commodity and as such raw material is at an all-time high in terms of price. Hopefully at some point it will stabilise and maybe come back down, but this is unlikely to happen in the immediate future. We are aware that others use lower grades, be informed that that doesn’t sit within our company ethos. The difference in quality is quite remarkable from supplier to suppler. If you take the time to compare, you will see that some larger stores are having to use the whiter antler which is not such good quality, our Staglers and the original dog chew company Stagbar are maintaining quality within the industry. Sadly this pressure for demand has caused a price rise in the industry to ensure we can purchase replacement stock.

As the big chain stores realised the potential of these healthy, mineral rich dog chews, are now finding it much harder to source suppliers. Wholesalers are also finding their UK suppliers are drying up. Buying online is going to be the most direct option.

Never fear, Staglers have anticipated this hand have good stocks of every size! This 2015 trend appears to be giving Staglers an opportunity to really look after our current trade partners. One competitor of ours currently has no stock for their trade customers and we have fortunately picked up some select new customers, this includes some vets practices – Great News, which just goes to show that Staglers really are recommended by vets…………………………

Exciting Staglers demands to be seen!

Childs drawing van deer antler dog chew business Staglers

Exciting Staglers demands to be seen!

What’s that coming over the hill? Look out and about on the roads of Dorset because, trust me,  you have never seen anything like it.

It started as a family project to see if we could get out and about around town, visiting local businesses, all over Dorset in a vehicle that truly represented the spirit of what Staglers is about. Quality, fun and a great brand.

My wife and the two children were all tasked with drawing their idea of what this vehicle should look like.  Surprisingly the main key points were on all of the drawings. I must have them all well trained! Created by Insignia Signs, Poole, “the design and helpfulness of the team made the whole experience a pleasure.”

Yippee, my pawfect van is now on the road and ready for you. You can read about us in the Bournemouth  Echo or spot us in BournemouthStaglers business vehicle in Dorset, Poole, Dorchester, Ringwood, Weymouth and every town nearby!

“Staglers was started by John Palmer-Snellin, who for many years was Dorset Police’s wildlife officer, along with his wife Sandra, who runs Farmer Palmer’s Farm Park.

They marked the business’s first anniversary by investing in a Vauxhall Combo van with branding of their own design.”
