Just as all dogs are not created equal, all chews are not suitable for all dogs. Some dogs are more aggressive chewers than others, and some are more destructive than others. Antlers and bones may crack a heavy chewer's teeth, while some edible chews may only keep them occupied for a few minutes.

Non-Edible, Long Last Dog Chews
With a multi-dog household, I'm always on the lookout for options that are well suited to our entire pack, which includes a one-year-old energetic pup and two senior hounds. Non-edible chew bones tend to be a good fit for all of them, as they aren't as hard on senior teeth as some other options.
My dogs prefer nylon chews over rubber ones, so as soon as I heard about the new Flavorit™ chews from Pet Qwerks, I knew we had to try them.
Flavorit chews are truly unique and like no other bone they have had before. They are made in the USA from 100% nylon, infused with tasty flavors, and engineered for aggressive chewers. But that's not the unique part....
In addition to the flavor infused into the bones, Flavorit chews feature flavor cells molded into both sides of the chew. You simply fill the cells with your dog's favorite spreadable treat and instantly create an amazing tasty chew that your dog will drool over.
I've been putting peanut butter on ours, and while I don't think the Lapdogs mind, I'm sure they'll love it even more when I start using some other tasty treats like cream cheese, mashed potatoes, yogurt, smashed bananas, apple sauce, and cottage cheese. You can even make a custom blend by mixing herbs, peas, cooked chicken or salmon, or bacon into one of the spreads. The options are pretty much endless, just use your imagination...
I'm sure many of your are wondering, "How the heck do I clean all those tiny little holes?" No worries. Flavorit chews can be cleaned with hot soapy water and a brush, or you can place them in the top rack of your dishwasher. My dogs have done an excellent job with cleaning them on their own, but I've found a toothpick works great for any stubborn food left behind in the cells.
When it comes to the flavor infused chew itself, there are several flavors to choose from:
- Peanut Butter
- Sweet Potato
- Breath (mint)
- Flex Bacon
- Flex Breath (mint)
- Flex Peanut Butter
- Small - up to 15lbs
- Medium - up to 30lbs
- Large - up to 50lbs
- XLarge - over 50lbs
When picking out your flavors and styles, keep in mind that the original Flavorit was designed for aggressive chewers, while the Flex is intended for moderate chewers.
The Lapdogs enjoy all of the flavors, however Teutul and Penny seem to prefer the peanut butter and sweet potato, while Sophie tends to pick the berry first.

As with any non-edible chew, you should always supervise your dog while chewing. While the chews are pretty sturdy, it is possible for pieces to break off. Tiny flakes may be ingested, but larger pieces should not. If you notice any larger pieces coming off or damage of concern, remove the chew right away.
Flavorit chews have received all paws up from the Lapdogs, as well as a big thumbs up from the humans. I love that they are Made in the USA and available in a variety of flavors, not to mention that they keep my dogs happily occupied. They love chewing and getting the extra spreadable treat.
