    Roxy, the dog who usually eats anything and everything has gone off her once a week treat of rawhide cigar bones!! :eek:
    She just won't eat them, if I give her one she acts all excited, takes it off me, she might chew it a bit, then just leaves it.
    She used to love them and they'd be gone in less than an hour!

    So I'm looking for a tasty alternative that she will find appealing, I've tried flavoured rawhide and it's the same result.
    She does eat the Good Boy chewy twists with chicken/duck but they don't last 10 minutes! I know you can get jumbo versions of these, which she has at the moment and seems to like but I think that's too big for a little dog, don't want a fat dog!
    I want something she can have on a Sunday afternoon that will keep her occupied for a bit. And something natural that is less likely to aggrivate her sensitive skin.

    Any suggestions? Nothing stinky please! Haha!
    I got her a filled hoof a couple of months ago...big mistake! :eek:

    Thanks @JudyN, they look really good!
    I also like the look of the Kong Tilt, although it might be a bit big for the kitchen! I have been looking for a good puzzle toy for her meals, the one she's got is a bit easy for her! But it needs to be rubber really to reduce noise on the tiled floor, any suggestions?

    Harri love pizzle sticks. There's a good couple of hours chewing in one for him. I did try him with paddywack too but he isn't a big fan.

    I've just looked up pizzle sticks on amazon and some of the reviews say that they're really smelly, is this true? Or does it depend on the brand? She's getting very bored without her rawhide if I'm busy doing things around the house! :(

    They can be yes but you need to be up close to them to get a whiff. From a dogs point of view the smell makes it even more delicious!
