Looking for specific info?
What is acceptable wear and tear? Mine’s edges are all rough scratchy with shards hanging on after 1 day.
Do the dogs ingest these bones and is that ok? Safe? I have a moderate chewer.
Has the level of bacon been reduced in the latest production of benebones? It’s now lighter in color and bacon scent doesn’t seem as strong.
Why criteria did benebone use to decide on the 70 lb weight recommendation?my 80 pound dog’s mouth is smaller than most her size and it seems ok.
How large is this bone? My australain labrodoodle mid size 40 lbs. Pure muscle and very strong jaws. Thanks!
Callie the german shepherd loves to chew elk horns – broke a back tooth so need to get away from that. How’s this on breaking teeth?
My dog currently just has the bacon benebone! Does anyone’s pooch favor one flavor (peanut butter vs bacon) over the other? Just curious.
Do these leave a stain or mark? I’m wondering if the dog is chewing it while on furniture, does it leave a greasy or brown mark?
Are these tougher than nylabones
I have a aggressive chewer will these last for days or is it possible to eat it up in 5 minutes like he does chips?
My dogs have no interest in this at all. Any suggestions or recommendations on how to make it more appetizing for them? Thanks!

What are our customers saying?
Adopted a 1-year-old pup from the shelter to keep my 10-year-old rescue pup young, and boy oh boy does he like to chew and destroy anything he can get his paws on! I’ve never actually had a dog that had a problem with chewing things it wasn’t supposed to (e.g., shoes, remotes, sharp objects, paperwork, rubber bands, the trash can, everything inside the trash can, the duvet, the couch, and everything in between…) so it’s been an exasperating experience trying to puppy-proof the house when his preferences include everything. He destroys these items in a matter of minutes. We regularly replenish his chew toy collection to keep up with replacements but this toy/bone is one of the few that have lasted. And he chews it! It’s actually our toy of choice when we have to kennel him. Long story short—this is a great option for destructive doggos.
I got this about ~2 months ago for my ~9 month old german shepherd who’s teething, and it is amazing and barely destroyed.
Instead of biting on the metal of her crate, she’ll just chew on this endlessly.
This particular toy design – as opposed to the other designs – gives her more entertainment/play as sometimes she’ll bite it, try to get a better grip on it and it will slip out of her mouth, and then she’ll run around trying to bite it again.
My dog loves his bone.
He really works it over and keeps him happy.
Seratonin is released in a dog brain when they chew. Or was it endorphins?
He loves his bone, it keeps him happy, just have to switch the old for new.
Now i have a retired ‘not a bone’ that’s no longer useful and seems like a waste just throwing it away.
Still an amazing product that my dog love.
My half shepherd/border collie (2 years old and hyper)destroys everything. Its hard to not only find a toy she likes but also one she doesn’t tear right though. She loves this and it is holding up so well. I’m very impressed. Havent had to worry about her breaking off a piece and swallowing it because she hasn’t been able to, not even close. We’ve had it for a couple of weeks now and she chews on it often. She seems to really enjoy the end that has roughed up from her chewing it.
We’ve been running out of options for our 1 year old beagle when it comes to chew toys. He’s a destroyer. This chew bone has lasted more than two weeks and is one of his favorites. It appears to be holding up and not flaking off. The end where he chews most is rough, but we can sand it down if needed. I plan to purchase another in a different flavor.
I’ve had my dog harry for 8 years and he never was that interested in chewing. I got a new dog a few months ago who’s still a baby so he goes threw chew toys like crazy. I was sticking to buying him nylabones exclusively, but decided to give benebone a try after seeing all the good reviews. Both dogs loved it and would fight over it to the point where i had to buy an additional one! Not sure what it is about the benebone but even my older dog who isn’t much of a chewer loves the benebone. Have only had the benebones for a few weeks so i will update this review to reflect durability but so far so good, and my younger one is pretty aggressive with his chewing. Will definitely purchase again.
I was looking for toys that would last for my pitbull…..she just turned a year this month and she’s had this toy for at least a month (more in the 2-3 range)…..it’s still going strong and you don’t smell it at all until your relatively close (like on the floor near it)….if your just walking by or it’s in the same room, you won’t smell it…..she chews at it for hours apon end and it doesn’t do much damage
Let me just say my german shepherd is an extremely aggressive chewer and these keep her from getting in trouble. I had to order two because she lost her first one and went on a chewing spree in the house because she didn’t have it. Trust me you want one if you have a dog who gets in the trash or is chewing on things they shouldn’t be
I am a dog walker and benebone is my favorite brand of bone to recommend to all of my clients! I often purchase these bones for all of the dogs i care for. They are durable and don’t break so there isn’t a choking hazard as with other brands of bone. I have purchased their puppy bones as well as multiple sizes and shapes of bones for adult dogs, the dogs all love them!
Keep up the great work benebone!!
Benebones have been a life saver! I have a heavy chewer that easily destroyed every bone i got him, until these. Each bone last him several months.
The one thing to watch for is when they chew them way down. They can become a choking hazard. Keep and eye out and replace them once your dog can swallow it whole.
***edit 3: i have upgraded this to four stars. I received two replacement jumbo bones after the one i purchased broke off almost instantly. I think that product had a defect in it, which is a little dangerous because it broke into a piece that could be swallowed. However, the two replacement bones have been excellent. One got chewed up first, and it did slowly whittle away, but it did not break into any dangerous pieces and it did not get sharp. My puppy loved it! The second bone she has had a little more trouble chewing away, and it still gets her attention after months of hard chewing. Which makes me think that the bones have different hardness levels in the batches they are made, but that is just speculation. Regardless, the bone is great and does does not break into little pieces which could be choking hazards, and it does not get sharp.
Great product, a little inconsistent in batches maybe, but it will get your dog’s attention, provide hours of chewing, and the scent does not get on the carpet like other chew toys or bones. Good purchase!
***edit 1: benebone contacted me almost immediately and offered a replacement of the larger size. Their customer service representative has been friendly and i forwarded my contact information through their website for the replacement. I will update when i receive the new product and my experience.***
***edit 2: when i contacted benebone’s customer service to provide my address, they immediately responded in approximately an hour. In fact, they already sent and i received not one replacement, but two replacement bones and a nice handwritten note. I have attached a photo below proving it. The replacements were the larger, upgraded sizes too! I have upgraded this review to 3 stars premised on the sincere and strong customer service they have shown me. This company stands behind their products. For that, i think it is just to upgrade my 2 star review to 3 stars. I still stand by what i had said below regarding the smaller size, but so far my puppy loves the jumbo benebone and i will surely review the jumbo in two weeks to see how it holds up. So far, the jumbo is 5 stars for sure; it has held up much better than the other chew toy, despite my puppy’s intense chewing on this bone (it smells much stronger than the little bone and the flavor must be super intense for her). Despite this intense chewing, the bone has taken very little damage from her–it is holding up much better.
Advice: do not go by the weight recommendations and size. If your puppy/dog prefers to chew on hard bones, just get the largest size for 100 lb dogs. If your puppy chews on hard bones once in awhile but not really, then you can go for the size for 70 lb dogs. I still think the 70 lb benebone i got had a defect which resulted in one branch completely falling off immediately–the other two branches are solid despite heavy chewing–but this new jumbo bone is amazing!
***original review*** – 2 stars
i purchased this for my 45 lb, 8 month old pit bull/shepherd mix. It is a good idea and design, but one whole end was destroyed in no time. Perhaps i got a defective one with an air bubble or crack, as you can see from the photo below that one end completely broke off/wore down but the other two ends are barely damaged despite my puppy’s chewing.
Regardless, i feel a little mislead that it was rated for dogs up to 70 lbs and, while the packaging warns you that this is just an estimate, one who anticipate that it would last longer than a week for a puppy 25 lbs lighter than the estimate. Nylabones and elk antlers lasted much longer than this did and my puppy seriously chews on the elk antlers quite intensely.
As way of some background, my puppy has a lot of chew toys ranging from bones, rawhide, ropes, stuffed animals, nylabones, and rubber balls. She certainly spent a lot of attention on this toy the last week, but it wasn’t exclusive and her chewing was shared with some of her other staples.
I like that this toy has bacon mixed in with it. If you smell the toy, particularly where your dog has been chewing, you can kind of smell a meaty aroma. It does not get on the rug or rub off, and it is a faint smell, but on the chewed parts you can smell something. It is not noticeable when you are sitting next to your dog/puppy and the toy, or near the toy; it is only when you pick up the toy and put it right to your nose. I can only imagine what this smells like to dogs with their super sense of smell!
I also can’t argue with the design/shape of the toy–it’s perfect! The curve of the toy is great, as she can scoop it up or put pressure on one end to elevate the opposite end to chew on it.
But i just can’t get over how quickly that one end came off. I got it about two weeks ago and i gave it to her last week (i slowly introduce new toys to keep her occupied and her mind stimulated). Compared to other chew toys–including nylabone and elk antlers–this toy wore down much quicker. In fact, the nylabone she has had for much longer, the puppy nylabones nonetheless, have outlasted this toy and the nylabone has been around since we first took her home at 2 months. She has also had an elk antler which has also lasted much longer and she really goes after that one.
I have attached a photo below of my puppy and the damage to the bone. For the cost, which is about the same as a nylabone, i would have wished it lasted much longer than it did–which is why i got it in the first place as opposed to another nylabone. I would be happy if it lasted a few months, which is what i would guess to be its normal lifespan.
I would not classify my puppy as a big chewer either. She certainly chews and can do damage to hard bones or chew toys, but she is by no means a destroyer–she does not even shred her stuffed animals and has executed only a few (some were not even dog chew toys but children’s toys she was given to play with). This is the first hard toy she has destroyed where i had to take it away.
Conclusion: perhaps i got a benebone that had a defect, or my puppy really just destroyed this one in a mere week, but i simply cannot recommend this version of the benebone i got. I might try to get the jumbo benebone or one rated higher for bigger dogs up to 100 lbs if they go on sale, but i don’t think that my 8 month old puppy should warrant a toy for dogs up to 100 lbs when she has not destroyed any of her other toys like this one. It even takes her longer to go through some of the large rawhide toys she has!
It’s a hit as soon as it arrived. Our jules just loves it. We tried nylabone for puppies, she didn’t like it much because it’s heavy for her and no easy way to hold and chew on it. But benebone is her fav!
I have a 3 year old female rottweiler and this is her go to chew toy. She is a fairly aggressive chewer so, these are a good option. They are durable and don’t break off in big pieces so they are safe unlike rawhide. The biggest problem with these, and the reason for only 3 starts for longevity is you have to throw them away after the dog has chewed only like 15% of the toy. It’s by design for the safety of the animal but, be aware that you are throwing away a lot of material that you paid for. Other than that, these are amazing.
One of my pups favorite while teething to just chew on constantly. Does last fairly long but if you follow the companies recommendation on when to throw away it won’t last very long.
It depends on your dog of course, but if it’s a little pricey, then your dog might be interested in if for a few days and forget about it. My dog lost interest in it so fast, but he did like to chew at the corners and it held up fine. It says it’s flavored but it smells like plastic and i assumed it tasted like the flavored it stated bc he did like it for a bit.
I bought one for each of our 4 dogs: german shepard, golden lab, aussie, dachshund… I bought 2 larges, 1 medium, 1 small… All of them should have been down graded. The larges are way to large for the shepard and lab. The small is too large for the dachshund. The small went to the aussie. I ordered a tiny and one more medium so there wouldn’t be any fights. costly mistake on the larges.
My dog likes this bone, but isn’t addicted to it as promised in the reviews. This is also available for a lower price for $11.99 at tractor supply.
Great product. Fast shipping.
Well made durable bone for aggressive chewers. Unfortunately our dog doesn’t seem to really enjoy it.
My dogs love these but….. It can’t be healthy for them to ingest small particles of basically plastic? We throw them away when they get too chewed up but that also makes it a pricier chew toy
