In a word, this bone is a winner! My dog's always been a tough customer when it comes to rubber bones — and he's never been fooled into thinking that a rubber bone is as good as the real thing. But introducing him to the 100% gum Chocolate Flavored Rubber Bone Dog Chew Toy from FetchDog was a completely different story. One sniff of its chocolaty goodness, and he was totally attentive. And once he started gnawing on it, he didn't want to stop. The bone also comes in Peanut Butter, Cashew, and Pistachio flavors. And, it's available in Small, Medium (7") and Large (8.5") for all sizes of chewers.
Open the package and you'll discover that the bone is heavy for its size. I tried the large size, which was fine for my 65-pound pooch — though he may also have been just as comfortable with the medium. Its soft, smooth surface is easy on your dog's teeth and gums, while the dense rubber texture gives jaws a good workout. Unlike the Booda Dogzilla Dumbbell Dog Toy, which claims to be "infused with protein to make it deliciously crave-able" but fails to deliver on that promise, the FetchDog Flavored Rubber Bone Chew Toy, made by Wagwear, actually seems irresistible. And after several serious chewing sessions, the bone only shows small indentations as wear.
This bone is a great option if you're interested in satisfying your dog's need to gnaw with a non-edible/non-rawhide toy that will last a long time. As with all chew toys, if you have a power chewer in your house, you'll need to keep an eye out for any small pieces that could be swallowed. But so far, this rubber bone is holding up well for us. At $20 for the largest size, the product may seem a bit pricey. But the bone has proved incredibly durable so far — and my dog absolutely loves it.
Pros: A clear winner! Durability and density make this chew toy a standout. And the flavorful smell will fool the toughest canine customers into thinking this rubber bone is the real deal.
Cons: The premium quality of this bone comes at a cost, although for serious gnawers, money might be no object. And as with all bones, keep a close eye out for small pieces that may come loose.

Many of my birds have survived thanks to this antibiotic. Why I can't find it in a store is beyond me. This is a miracle tonic that at only 2.99 can save all types of birds. It's almost impossible to … more ›
