The Dogwood chew toy by PetStages is perfect for nature loving pups that enjoy gnawing on sticks. It comes in four sizes to suit even the most powerful jaws and contains the natural wood flavor and texture dogs love without the risk of splintering. Dogwood chews are made in the USA, yes this is important because this type of dog chew if manufactured in places like China, can sometimes be hazardous to your dog’s health, and I will never recommend a product that will be detrimental to the health of any dog. This chew toy is great for busy chewers or pups with anxious chewing habits.

A true favorite, ultra strong and durable rubber formula for powerful chewers. I like to fill the Kong with peanut butter, yes I said it, peanut butter and freeze it overnight, I then give it to my dog to play with throughout the day, he loves peanut butter and it takes him a while to get all of the frozen peanut butter out of it.
