Finding a durable chew for a feisty puppy can be difficult. My Golden-Doodle Ruby will destroy almost anything she can with her sharp teeth except for her elk antler, which she’s had for nearly six months. Elk antlers are extremely durable and will last longer than a normal chew like a bully stick. Antlers are a great source of calcium, zinc, phosphorus, iron, magnesium, potassium, and best of all they are great for cleaning teeth! Dogs are attracted to the bone marrow of the antler making them very palatable. Shop Dog carries antlers in all different shapes and sizes for only $3.50 per oz. If you are having trouble with your dog figuring out what to do with the antler, just put a little peanut butter or coconut oil on it for them find out how tasty chewing an antler is. Every year elk will shed their antlers because of the decrease in testosterone levels weakens the bones and tissues at the base of the antler causing the antler to fall off. The shedding of the antler is a quick and painless process. A new set grows back the following spring and can grow up to an inch a day! Kevin and Holly of Wags-A-Lot dog chews in Rapid City, South Dakota are our suppliers of elk antlers splits and burrs. Our antlers come from western South Dakota,Wyoming, and Colorado where Kevin and Holly along with their two horses, Slick and Doc, and their yellow lab, Boone, have been antler hunting antlers for years. Stop in and we would love to help you find the perfect antler for your dog!
