Does your dog devour bully sticks and other rawhide treats in minutes (or seconds)? Well, we've found a great treat for those aggressive chewers that will last a long time - antlers for dogs! They can be a healthy alternative to other chews.
Antlers for dogs are loaded with calcium and minerals and are a superb long lasting treat. Dogs aren't actually able to chew through the antlers, but rather they gradually grind them down, which makes them a great way to keep tartar and plaque off your dog's teeth. Dog owner's love them because they are not messy and they don't smell likes some of those natural dog treats (e.g. pig ears).
Do you wonder how long these antlers really last? Well we tried them out with our resident chow chow, Lila. You can see for yourself in the photos and slide show below that they're pretty tough. Usually Lila can eat a whole bully stick in about 5 minutes. After about 10 minutes of chewing on the Acadia Antler (and this was a small sample), she barely made a dent in it.
Now we've heard of various companies that sell antlers for dogs, but we've met Acadia Antlers and believe they really have a high quality product that is also concerned about the environment. Acadia Antlers makes sure their products are 100% cruelty free and no animals are harmed in the making of their chews. A surprising fact we learned is that moose shed their antlers every year in the wintertime and grow new antlers in the spring. As such, Acadia Antlers only use naturally shed antlers. They purchase the antlers directly from shed gatherers that find them on the forest floors in Maine. We also appreciate that it's a family-owned business, started by Carol Plescia, who is a single mom and raising two boys on her own.

Are you thinking of adopting a dog to bring home to the kids but are not sure which breeds can be considered safe? Because as much as we love dogs and their company, some breeds do not mix well with children. It could be due to several factors like personality traits, dog sizes, aggression, and more. What is clear is that these pooches are the ones to watch out for the most and should not meet your kids.
If you want to adopt a new dog, there is a chance that you may be conflicted between a big dog or a small dog, am I right? This decision can be tough to make for some. So, why not make it easier on yourself and consider a medium size dog instead?
Did you know that dogs are just as much at risk of getting skin cancer as we are? Seriously! Most of them are strongly susceptible to skin damage from sunburns, but not many people think that. And with the temperatures steadily rising, as we get closer to the spring/summer seasons, this can also mean more visits to the veterinarian if we are not careful.
Are you looking for a way to keep your overly-excitable pooch distracted and busy when you are too busy to play with them? If this is the case, then what you need is a dog treat dispenser. This is because boredom is one of the many reasons that lead to dogs chewing up furniture or even acting overly aggressive sometimes.
Are you trying to figure out what is the best dog breed to bring home to your family? There is no question that dogs make great companions, and if you have kids they are a great way to help teach them the value of responsibility and unconditional love. The tricky part is choosing the right dog to blend in with your family lifestyle, and if you are looking for some medium sized dogs, then you have come to the right place!
