There are probably 20 Nylabones of all varieties scattered around my house and my three dogs love them. Plastic chew-bones are my personal favorite for my pups (simply my preference!) Not an evening goes by without their recreational chewing – sometimes in stereo! When I saw a new type of long duration chewbone, I had to give it a try.
Benebone sells a wishbone-style plastic chewbone in three different sizes: Jumbo, Regular or Mini. You have your choice of flavors: Rotisserie Chicken, Bacon or Peanut Butter. One thing was different straight off, the wishbone was curved rather than straight. There are also little channels at each of the three ends. Watching my dogs chew on the bones, they seem to be able to use both of these features to grip the bone more comfortably than other chewbones. We approve of the design!
For flavor we went with the bacon and peanut butter flavored wishbones. I can’t comment on the taste, and my dogs aren’t saying anything! I don’t smell the flavors but the dog have been committing a lot of time to our two wishbones…they seem to absolutely love them!
Durability gets a high rating from us after about three weeks of use. This bone does not look like plastic, and at first glance I thought that it was edible and nearly passed it by. Not the case! I chose two Regular size Wishbones. This was not too large for my corgi to enjoy, and is holding up nicely to my pitbull – who is a 60lb heavy chewer. So, a good size range of dogs for the Regular. For power chewers and larger dogs, the Jumbo size would probably be best both for durability and for size matching. No chunks have broken off of the bones, not even any too-large plastic shavings or chips. I still don’t recommend stepping on one in your bare feet, or rolling over on one in the bed in the middle of the night!
Benebone makes another shape of chewbone, the Rocking Dental Chew. This comes in one size only, but is newly available in all three flavors. The bone is curved and has ridges on either size for dental cleaning. My dogs seem to prefer the Wishbone style chew to the Dental Chew however. The Dental Chew definitely gets some attention, but not nearly the amount that the Wishbones get.
Interested? You can visit the Benebone website to learn more. If you would like to buy some Benebones for your pup, you can order them on Amazon or Chewy – and the Benebone website states that they are available at some pet stores. (I have seen them at Pet Valu.)
(Benebone did not ask me to write this review. My dogs simply enjoyed their product and wanted to share!)
