Best Chew toys for POWERFUL chewers.

5 posts in this topic

I have a 1.5yo yellow lab who chews through everything. She's fine cause she only chews on what we give her, but so far she is yet to meet her match. She's gone through rawhides, Red Kongs, Black Kongs, Several Nylabones which she gnaws down into nice sharp prison shanks. I thought I had the answer with the cattle shin bones (hard as rock, cheap, last for a while). But now we go to the vet and she has a broken back tooth. What's next? Also, anyone deal with broken teeth much? It doesn't seem to bother her, and the doc wants $600+ to remove it, or I'm told I can get her a $1000+ root canal??---Are you kidding me??

The best thing that I have found are the extra large nylabones... My Griffon loves them and they do last longer than anything else that I have found... Breaking teeth, wow that is amazing! Hopefully you dog will slow down a bit with age....

$600 dollars? I think I had a dog's tooth removed 2 years ago for around $100... and most of that was sedation!

I think you'd be cheaper off going to a human dentist. Call a couple other vets and get a price.

Good Luck!

Does she chew on other stuff if she doesnt have a bone? I know that it is good for the teeth but what I have done is give them something to chew for a limit time. My thought is then they don't see it as they have to finish it off...my 2 cents

Thanks for the advice all, yes, we're looking for second opinions for the tooth removal, I haven't spent that much on my teeth, maybe I will ask my dentist! The nylabones do work ok, I'll look for the biggest I can find. Yeah, she doesn't chew on other stuff, but she's kind of a pest without some entertainment. I know, I should give her more exercise, but when it's zero outside, I seem to lose ambition! Thanks for the help all!

      We only fished for 5 hours (only 2 hours were worthwhile 29 ft).

      OK so day before father's day we had terrible weather. 1st spot was in 14 ft of current n we caught 4 eyes. Did c a sturgeon role but waste of time other than that. Next spot 6 eyes still a wasted time cause of the weather but the old man did caught a 20 in so it wasn't all that bad. But once the weather allowed we catch  26 eyes n in 29 ft of water n one was 24 in.

      Definitely have 2 disagree with with u 2. I understand the drive n the worry but if you've fished the csn chain for 10+ years there shouldn't be a worry 2 find a campsite cause you've driven past plenty of them. Also we're in the same boat regardless of the travel distance to fine a campsite. Yes it is nice 2 have a guaranteed spot but since they went 2 paid 2 camp regulation they have taken out a number of campsites so it limits options. ALSO U R WAY WRONG ON SAYING MORE PPL R AT THE PARK NOW. I went last Saturday  (day before father's day) n we seen like 4 or 5 more boats than canoes. It's nice for ppl who don't know the csn chain but it's terrible for the economy.   Fyi. First time I went fishing on the chain I went lake trout fishing on David......... I was 6 weeks old ......... I'm 32 now..... my dad's been fishing the csn chain for 65+ years    P.s. love how there's less pressure=better fishing.

      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!

      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      We will see if Sailorfly is another ask a silly question one hit wonder?

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan
