12 inch braided bully sticks

I ordered 12 inch braided bully sticks for Amber. Unfortunately, they only last a couple of nights with her chewing for 1/2 hour each night. The little dogs can use the leftovers. Have you found anything more substantial, long-lasting than the 12 inch braided? At $40 for 6, I can't do them all of the time. Thanks.

Have you tried antlers? After spending countless dollars on bully sticks that lasted just 20 minutes, I finally bought some antlers and they are wonderful. They last 3-6 months with my two chewing them hard every single day. I buy from Michigan Antler Art - Home

No problem! Hope they're a hit in your house like in mine! I buy the jumbo size with the hard core and my dogs seriously love theirs.

For some strange reason, Nugget has shown virtually no interest whatsoever in the antler that I bought him. He does adore bully sticks and I get them locally at Costco. they come in a convenient 12 pack and cost less than $2 apiece.

Nope, no interest in the antlers here, either, and GOSH they're expensive!

Yes they are expensive up front (the ones I get are about $20 a piece for a 1lb huge antler) but for how long they last with heavy chewing every single day, it's well worth it and much less expensive than any other chew like a bully stick in the long run.

If your pup isn't interested in the antler, try roughing the surface up a little bit, I don't know if it makes the smell stronger or what but that seems to work for some dogs. Mine don't need any enticing, they are all over their new antlers when they come in the mail.
