    We are adopting a 5 month old male boxer. We are picking him up on Sunday. He is probably teething so I need some suggestions on SAFE teething toys. I thought those synthetic bones were safe but they WERE NOT good for our girl and she wasn't a big chewer. This dog will be different. Suggestions please :)

    When crated, Brodie enjoys chewing on a deer antler (got it at Petco). It was expensive, but they don't chip or splinter, and they seem to last forever. He only gets it in his crate so that it's a special treat when we go to work.

    We also give him a bully stick occasionally. They're better than rawhide, b/c they're digestible. I only allow him to chew on it outside, b/c they're stinky!

    Oh, I forgot all about the deer antler. We did get Roxy one of those. You are right, they last a long time.

    Stuff a kong with peanut butter, and or yogurt, etc, and freeze it. The cold will also help relieve any pain associated with teething. I mix yogurt and a little pb, and some banana in a bowl then I stuff the kong with that.

    I have a Kong for him but only put liver treats so he will go in his crate. A frozen Kong with goodies is a great idea...thanks!
