First- are rawhides safe for FB puppies? Our baby is 10 weeks old and I think she is going through a serious teething phase and dying to chew on anything. We have some long skinny rolled type raw hides that don't break apart easy at all but keep her busy. Are these safe as long as we are monitoring her while she chews? Or does anyone recommend anything better?ImageUploadedByTapatalk1375409492.301819.jpg

Hi Trish and Margie! Welcome to FBN. We don't give our Bulldogs rawhides at all. Nylabones and Kongs are safer. Margie is a cutie!

Alright, We did a google search last night and saw that it wasn't a safe idea for them. I definitely need something safe and hard to chew since she is teething so I will look into buying some Nylabones. Thanks!

:nono: Bad, rawhide, bad! Get Kongs and stuff them with peanut butter, banana, cream cheese and freeze them... the cold helps with the teething pain too

I agree with 2bullymama, all my dogs have loved Kong products and they come in a few different sizes and shapes. You can find them at almost any pet shop and they are virtually indestructable too, definitely a good purchase.

Stella loves her nylabones. It was her favorite chew thing for her first year.

Yes stay with Nylabones and Kongs, to chew on.

Bernies favourite teething toy was a raw carrot! To sooth his hurting gums, I'd pop it in the freezer for 10 mins before letting him have it.
Cheap and good for them :)

We give our puppy nylabone and kongs also. But he loves his bullystick the best by far. It is all natural and is digestible (unlike rawhides).
