The end of June I won a $25 gift card from Best Elk Antlers on Dachshund Nola’s blog. We have heard a lot about antlers but honestly, Mom had no idea how they would be for us dogs. They are also not cheap, so Mom did not want to order them, only to find out we don’t like them. This was the perfect chance to finally try out some antlers!
Mom and I went to the website to order and were amazed. You don’t just say, “two antlers, please”. There are all kinds of antler items, and for all sizes of dogs too! Woofers, they even have rope toys with an antler built in! It was overwhelming for me, and I started drooling on the keyboard so I left the ordering up to Mom. She finally made the executive decision to order a large and a medium split elk antler. She thought the split antler would be a good choice because we could find the “meat” right off the bat and would not be frustrated. Delivery time should be 5-8 days. We started waiting.
Wow! After just 3 days my antler package arrived – that is a +1 for fast shipping! Mom opened the envelope and I took off with the bag holding the antlers. It smelled good and I wanted in! Of course, I did not get far before the bag was taken away from me…grrr…
That evening Mom got the antlers out and gave Katie and me each our own to try. Before I go further, you need to know that Katie munches down all chews in about one minute and then tries to steal mine because I like to take my time and actually enjoy my chew. We started sniffin’, lickin’ and then munchin’. This went on for an entire hour at which point, my sister, the speed chewer, actually got up and left her antler. I think she was in a state of shock as she could not munch that antler down! I kept gnawing a bit longer, then Mom took them both and put them away for the night. It was crazy, they barely showed any signs of being chewed on after an entire hour!
So, what do we have to say about Best Elk Antlers?
What we like:
- They will last me and even my Kuvasz sister for a very long time
- They were not at all smelly
- They are not greasy
- They are a product of the USA and are made ONLY from antlers elk have shed, no elk are harmed
- There are no additives or preservatives
- They are rich in nutrients
What we did not like:
- They are expensive but since they will last a long time that is not really a negative
- The first time ordering is a bit overwhelming with all the options and sizes if you aren’t familiar with antlers
From the look on my face and my tongue position, you should be able to tell I give these antlers four paws up! Remember – don’t leave us dogs unattended with antlers just in case they should splinter or if you have more than one dog, you don’t want any fighting.
We received these antlers for free from a gift card we won in a giveaway. We were not asked by Best Elk Antlers to write a review and are not receiving any compensation for this review. We are only reviewing these antlers because Emma really likes them.
