My 19wo GSP pup is not interested I any of the view toys we have bought him.

I have tried:

Nylabones (various types)
Stuffed Kong
Pigs Ears

He just isn't interested in the Nylabones or antlers. Kongs are fine but only lasts for a few minutes. Pigs ears stink and give him the runs.

I really need to find something that will keep his attention and interest him.

Frozen marrow bones
Pig rind
Goat ears
and chew roots

Are popular with Badlypup but she has a cast iron stomach.

Have you tried frozen kongs?

Does he ignore/reject the antler, or has he tried it and left it? Wetting an antler seems to get the flavour going - just give it a rinse and don't dry it before giving it to him.

He's just not interested in the antler. I will try setting it.

Not tried frozen kings. Will give those a go.

What are chew roots?

A hunk of wood that they can chew.

Badlypup is currently chopping on a yakers chew. Having already demolished two cardboard boxes.

(Yes she is very spoilt in the chew department)

You should try the yak milk chews they are fantastic.

My 15 week old GSP loves dried sausages and milk bones if you can get your hands on those? Although there's not much she doesn't like tbh!

I tend towards things that are clearly identifiable bits of an animal - dried tripe, paddywhack, ears, trachea, pizzle sticks, fish skin, lambs tails etc etc

Wetting the antler has worked!

Yakers! My dogs love them but they are so flipping expensive. and Active Hound are cheapest I’ve seen.
XL ones are £15 in my local garden centre shock

Oh ye of little faith!

You can buy Yakers on Amazon - two for £12 or so @WhatsYourFuckingProblem

Oh really? Never thought of looking on Amazon, thanks Adaline
