Rawhide bones may still be heavy hitters when it comes to the dog chew bone market, as they are both tasty and soft, but elk antlers chews for dogs are solid contenders for tough chewers and provide benefits that rawhide bones don't.
Problems with Rawhide
Ambitious dogs can tear through a large rawhide bone in short order. Sometimes the pups won't even chew through the whole bone, leaving one of the knobby ends to carry around, bury and hide. My beagle would even hide the slobbery knobs underneath my pillow! Then without your dog going through the whole bone, you have to go buy a new one to keep his teeth occupied.
Why Elk Antlers
Not so with antler dog chews for dogs, which can last 10 times longer than a rawhide. Elk shed their antlers naturally to provide these chew toys for your canine friend, and elk antlers do not splinter like deer antlers do, making it a safer and longer-lasting choice.
According to the University of Michigan Museum of Zoology's section on elk, the antlers grow more than a meter long, which is why antler dog chews come in a range of sizes to suit the kind of dog you have. Elk antlers also have velvet on their antlers that is normally shed to allow males to compete for female attention. Coupled with the fact that the velvet can provide health benefits for your dog, it is more difficult but not impossible to find antlers with the velvet still intact.
