I purchased this dog bone because I have a large boxer who likes to chew on everything. Everything from paper towels to the couch has been ruined, and his favorite thing to chew on is underwear. Pervert. I said to myself "look at this giant bone, he'll love this and leave other stuff alone" great thought. What I did not realize at the time was the weight of this giant bone and the capacity to crush ones foot and wreak havoc wherever it went. Once the bone arrived I realized not only was this a giant heavy bone, but also that my dog was big enough to run frantically around the house with joy and jumping on the couch. I nearly suffered a concussion at the hands of this bone. I now feel the need to purchase steel toe boots to wear in the house. This is by far the most dangerous dog product in existence.
My dog initially loved it for a few minutes then refused to touch it. The next day the house was infested with flies I mean a nasty infestation. Like 30 flies (not an exaggeration). We searched for the source and could not find anything we killed a ton of lies and cleaned around and still could not find where the flies were, no matter how many we killed more would show up (never a problem before) then I saw a fly crawl out of the bone. As soon as I threw the bone outside we were able to control the fly situation. No wonder the dog wouldn’t touch the bone. I understand things happen but this was sooo gross flies are just sooo disgusting to me since we have babies and pets no flies are welcome.
My two 60 lb. dogs love these bones. They spend hours with them when I first give them out and will go back to them later when the bones are older. The bones have some baked on skin and whatever on them that the dogs just love. But be careful opening the package because bits of it will fall everywhere. The bones are individually wrapped inside an outer wrapper. This is a great feature if you only have one dog and want to store away the other bone. Please see the photos to know how big these bones are. I have purchased these bones more than once and they have been about this size each time. I think these bones are a good value-I purchased them for $7.40 with subscribe and save.
I have a chocolate lab pit mix and she is a chewer! She will destroy toys in a matter of minutes so I wanted to try a bone without paying $25 per bone. These look nasty at first but then with all the chewing and licking she does it now looks like a normal bone. She's been on the same bone for almost 2 months and it has t splintered or anything. Her new favorite thing! Highly recommended!
UPDATE: 5-star now, they resumed their discount price!
We have been buying these bones for about a year, for $7.79/2. Recently they went up to $12.79 ...boo! Now I get them from Menards for about the same $8. Pet stores carry these too, except they are about $5-6 each. One star reduced for price change.
Size is great for our 25 pounder up to our 70 pounder. All our dogs are adopted mixed breed dogs, some are strong chewers, and these usually last beyond the point when all the "gunk" is chewed off. Speaking of that, have your dogs in an empty crate or outside until they are chewed clean. Afterwards, use them to fill with anything they like. We keep calories low by stuffing banana in them, just a chunk, and maybe a dab of peanut butter in the middle of bone to keep them excited. Pro tip: freeze them for extra long enjoyment.
Caution: occasionally they do break and then should be thrown away, but usually it doesn't happen until chewed for a while. My smaller dog can't break them any further, so she gets any broken large pieces to continue to chew. The larger dogs will break further and sometimes eat. They should not be allowed to swallow the pieces.
They do smell, but isn't that to be expected? Overall we find these to be a great high reward treat for special occasions or when we need them to be entertained for at least an hour.
I bought 4 packages of the 2 pack large bones thinking they would be a good size for my dogs.The picture of the bone package between the two hands of a person drawn made me think they were not much longer than 6 inches but I didn't imagine how large they were around when I got them. I was surprised at how BIG these bones are. Three of my mid size dogs have no problem chewing on them but it is almost comical watching my 10 pound chi mix trying to chew on one of these. He just stands with one leg holding it down while he attempts to chew it. I've never laughed so hard in my life. And he guards "his" bone like it's a precious jewel and I guess to him it is. I'm very pleased by these bones. They're not greasy like some bones and I think they will last a long time. I think next time I may order smaller though, at least one package for my chi mix. I also like that each bone was individually wrapped in plastic wrap. I don't like to give my dogs rawhide chews because of all the chemicals they use to bleach them nice and white. I want my dogs healthy and happy and these bones give them the chewing bliss all dogs crave. My chi mix Inky with his bone and my small shepard mix Pepper, two of my dogs enjoying their bones in the photo's below.
I got these a few months back for my two 80pound mutts. They are heavy chewers and destroy most this and bones, even the really big "mammoth bones" don't stand a chance. I have attached a picture of the product after 3months of use.
I don’t really know how to rate this product. I mean, my dog kinda likes them but I have never tested them. I guess I will try to rate it but then when I order cereal the next time I’ll ask my dog to rate that for me on Amazon just to be even.
So 5 Stars it is. My dog likes them. Try don’t splinter. They seem to have great flavor. They are smelly, which is a good thing I guess. Dont really know what people dislike abt this item. You got a great product. Cheaper than in the store.

This is unacceptable! It arrived and I opened it and it has ants, worms, mosquitoes, and I have a new apartment In which it has ants now due to opening it and the mosquitoes and flying ants escaped from the bag. Can’t believe this.
