Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

So far I've been lucky that Chuck hasn't been very destructive, despite not getting much attention for 6-8 hours a day while I'm gone. I think a part of it has to do with all the chews I give him, some during the boredom time, some not. I probably give him about 3-4 a week, but I just dont want to sustain that expense any more.

Does anyone have advice on some of the most affordable chews out there? Whether that's because they're long lasting or cheap or both, or even home made, I'm open to it.

We have a great chain of good pet stores called Mud Bay in Washington and they sell all kinds of good chews but like I said, just too much $.

I bought a dehydrated at Bed Bath n Beyond and have done dehydrated sweet potatoes and other fruits and veggies. After nine months I am still trial and error to get the potatoes to chewy but cheap in season is great. So 50-60 for the dehydrator then the 1.50 in food bulk is close to one bag of sweet potatoes in store (10$). I did dries liver and stunk myself out of the house but gotta try it outside eventually. Plus I have made my own snack for me. Also I think I am gonna try making jerky. Definately saving money on each bag I am not spending $10 on.

Longevity is gonna require things like antlers and horns which you might get cheap from local butchers or slaughter houses.

If you get a kong, you can stuff it with his kibble even. Thats whay i did for a long time with koda as a toy. I would stuff his kibble and run water through it for a few seconds then put it in the freezer over night. That would last koda 30-45min of play usually

He's not super into the ones I've gotten him so far, but that might change if it was all he got!

Do you happen to know offhand if they require any sort of treatment prior to giving them to the dog or whether they're simply 'raw'?

Lucky you! A pig ear only lasted 30 minutes here (if even that!) when he was 4 months old Laughing
