Up Your Chew Game with #Flavorit + GIVEAWAY

I've yet to meet a dog who doesn't love to chew, whether it be on something they're supposed to chew, or on something they're not. Of course it's our job as pet parents to focus their energy on those "to chew" things, but we also need to be sure we're providing them with the right chew.

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.

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Pet Qwerks. I am being compensated for helping spread the word about Flavorit bones, but Lapdog Creations only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers. All opinions expressed here are my own. Pet Qwerks is responsible for the giveaway prizes.

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....

Flavor Cells

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:
  • Chicken
  • Peanut Butter
  • Sweet Potato
  • Breath (mint)
  • Berry
There is also a Flavorit Flex, which, as the name implies, is a flexible chew. It is available in:
  • Flex Bacon
  • Flex Breath (mint)
  • Flex Peanut Butter
Both versions are available in four convenient sizes:
  • 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.

I think my dog would love the flavor cells!

Sue said...

Several of my dogs enjoy chewing but I think Bailey and Mackey would like these as a challenge to remove every bit of the flavor. Those two are power chewers that stick with a project.

Kelsie - It's Dog or Nothing said...

I have two big chewers who would love these! Are you able to freeze them? I feel like they'd last longer for my two if I popped them in the freezer :)

Unknown said...

My aggressive chewers would like these chews because they may actually get to savor the flavor. They annihilate edible chews too quickly to truly enjoy them!

Marjie said...

These might just work for Bebop. He's got really powerful jaws, and destroys everything fast. Of course, Tank likes to chew, too, always taking the squeakers out of his toys and shredding rawhide bones as fast as he can.

Tricia Clements MuttButs said...

I know my dogs would love the Flavorit. They are both chewers and especially when I add peanut butter. I need to try the cream cheese!

Dachshund Nola said...

Nola would love it, especially the little holes!

The Daily Pip said...

Ruby is a moderate chewer so I definitely she would prefer the Flex either the bacon or peanut butter flavor. Very cool that there are options for aggressive and moderate chewers!

Three Chatty Cats said...

Ooo, I think my dog would love these. He would probably like the PB one the best - of course smothered in PB like you did!

M. K. Clinton said...

Bentley would love the infused flavor and Pierre would love to chew on it.

Jana Rade said...

Pretty clever idea. Though I'm not a fan of non-edible chews.

Dash Kitten said...

I can't entr your giveaway but good luck to doggy owners in the USA.

Diane Holland said...

My pack loves peanut butter so I think that would be their choice. I know they would love these!

Christine Caplan said...

I'm also looking for chew easy for seniors to chew and digest. They love the flavors sweet potato and peanut butter so this brand looks like an awesome choice- I'll go and see where they're in PDX or I'll grab them online.

Ruth Epstein said...

They look fantastic but I know that Missy would just hide them and not chew them as if it does not fall apart she gets bored LOL

Fur Everywhere said...

I don't have a dog, but I think these chews are so cool! What a great idea you had - using a toothpick to get food out of the small cells. I am sure whichever dog wins will really love their prize!

evie said...

i think they would like they last a long time, it would be easy on their teeth, and they would love the peanut butter and sweet potato flavors.

Galatea said...

Love that these have holes in them for flavour - Saw them on twitter looking rather 'plastic' & assumed they were like a nasty flavoured bone my dog just looked at & disregarded. The advice you give re infusing them with yummy spreads will make them extra attractive. Given the inclusion of Peanut Butter, I'd recommend you put in a mention/*warning re xylitol or link to a separate blog advising readers on the best peanut butter product to use.

Shelley P said...

My dogs would love all the great flavors that the chews come in :) And the cells to add more goodness!

Natalie Hartmann said...

My dogs would love a peanut butter flavor bone! They would like the yummy flavors and I would like a fun toy lasts!

AliR said...

Zora is an average chewer but Simon is a master, like Olympic level chewer, and Piper is right behind him so we are always looking for durable, safe chew toys! Love the idea of flavor cells. I'm thinking the peanut butter or sweet potato would be big hits, though I might like them all to have the mint versions ;-)

Lindsay Pevny said...

I love that I could probably durable enough that I wouldn't have to watch my dog closely when she chews them, she's not a crazy chewer, but edible bones can be risky. Bacon would probably be a hit at my house!

Robin Mudge said...

These seem like great chews! My cat wouldn't be interested, but my mom's 4 senior dogs would love them. If I win, I will definitely be giving these to mom. :)

Amanda Yantos said...

My kids love their Flavorits! We like putting peanut butter on ours :D

Sweet Purrfections said...

My mom's dog would be very interested in this. He loves to chew, but we have to watch him closely because he tends to be very aggressive when chewing.

Kia said...

Simba would love the flavors and to drool all over it! These look so cool and love they are affordable too.

Lisa Murphy said...

I think a tough , long lasting chew would definitely keep Mollie interested, many of her toys do not stand up to those jaws!

♡♥♬ Carolsue ♡♥♬ said...

My dogs would love a Large Peanut Butter flavor infused chew! They love that flavor the most!

FiveSibesMom said...

These sound great! I have some power-chewers here and am very picky about what I give them for safety sake. I think my Huskies would love the flavor infusions as well as having some yummy spread on them. Thanks for the great review and for hosting the giveaway!

Daily Dog Tag said...

I am sure my dogs would love these if they were coated in peanut butter. They tend to prefer edible treats to chew toys.

Cassie said...

Jensen would love these!!#

jex said...

Jake just loves to chew. He doesn't know what toys are, so things like these are his toys.

Amber said...

My dogs love all treats, but I think they will like the flavors!

Amber said...

My dogs like all treats, but I think they will love the flavors!

tiffany dayton said...

They are chewy and have flavors they love.I'm excited about winning these.

davison57 said...

I have a dog that chews up every toy he gets. He would love this!

lisalela said...

Bowser would like that they're infused with flavor

Cathy Armato said...

I love this idea. My dogs will go wild over the sweet potato bone infused with peanut butter - Delish!

Hi Nichole, I was unable to locate the PIN when entering the contest. I searched for it on Pinterest and on Google but no results came up. Is it working? Maybe I'm just doing it incorrectly:

Probably that they'll taste good but last forever!

Dawn said...

How cool are these!!! Awesome

Maria Pollock said...

Briley will love that it's a new toy, and with every new toy, she takes on the challenge of "how long will it take for me to destroy this"? I rub peanut butter on her toys now, so I love this!
