Never noticed the stinkiness of them... (RE: Nylabones)
Bandit likes the Ham & Cheese, Peanut Butter, BBQ Chicken, and LOVES the Bacon.
Unfortunately he is finished before hes even started with them.
Tried the Hartz Bacon, and didnt like how it was starting to stain the carpet and such (coloring added), but he was at it for a while.
The Kong things works to a point, but he is starting to wear it out/chew through it.
I gave him one of these and he went pyscho on us, couldnt get near him to take it away, nor could we get him to come in. Rather comical and made for a good puppysitter.
I am FULLY sold on the bully sticks... even though to think of what it is can be disturbing, but it doesnt leave a huge mess, doesnt have an offending odor, lasts for a while, and he seems to enjoy them.
The compressed/formed rawhide treats are nothing more than a snack as he rips through them in less than 5 minutes too.
They also have a beef flavor that he liked, but they changed up the formula and became darker in color, VERY offensive oder, and he stopped chewing on them.
The other thing he likes is the rope pulls... we took them and made a beef broth and cooked them in it for 15 minutes or so... let it soak it all up, and he goes nuts for them and will sit and chew those for a while in addition to playing fetch.
