Manto chewing issues
Ok guys...I need some suggestions.
Manto is a chewer. He loves bones & rawhides....and I mean loves them. He would chew 'em non-stop if I let him.
I buy the bones (knuckle, center & shank bones, meat filled, etc), rawhides (knots, twists, pressed), cow hooves, etc.
He also has pig ears...but those are like eating potato chips for him...they go down so quick! He also has large & x-large kongs, but he gets bored quickly with those (yep, I stuff 'em with treats).
He has a ton of toys and will chew on those if he doesn't have a bone/treat.
And we're not having any behavioral issues with him chewing on the *wrong* things....I guess I should be very thankful for that.
But....how often can I give him bones? I give him one daily and I've been rotating what I give him. But really, to keep him happy/occupied, I would have to give him a couple a day. I don't do this because I'm not sure if it's ok for him. How often and how many can I give him? Are they *bad* for him in any way?
Bach wasn't a chewer and neither are Snoop & Tito. This is my first dog that's been a big time chewer. Anything else ya'll can think of that I can give him to work on?
