Best dog chew

My boy loves to chew but if I give him Stag bars or nyla bones he chips his teeth as he trys to bite through them, he loves to chew though, so what can you recommend, I have never used raw hide what do people think of this?
He is a newfoundland so big!

I give my boys raw hide and they are fine with it. Rawhide is not for everyone though. Some dogs have been know to have chocking fits from them but I always given raw hide bones to all the dogs I have owned.

I would avoid rawhide like the plague. It's awful for breaking off in lumps and they could easily choke your dog (my GSD once nearly choked to death on a chunk of it that got stuck in his throat). Dogs find rawhide hard to digest and it can cause issues, I think I'm right in saying that it can get stuck in their gut?

I buy those white sterile filled bones (can get them from Wilkos and lots of pet shops). They are about a quid or just over and last forever in our house - and that's saying something with a Rottie and Frenchie gnawing on them!!

Even when the filling has long gone, Marius & Lola adore chewing on these (literally for hours!)

As a quick treat that is gone in minutes, ours love Greenies more than anything. Again they are widely available and most pet shops sell them.

You might find this thread useful http://www.dogsey.com/showthread.php?t=158538

Hooves
Pigs Ears
Stag Bars
Pizzle
Beef Scalp

These all came up as quite good chews Nothing is without risk though. I try not to give much raw hide, after reading about it it seems more risky than some other natural chews.
