To give a little back ground... I have a 10 year FYL and an 11 month old BLM. I have always let my female in the house in the evenings throughout the winter and when doing so I would give her a raw hide bone to keep her occupied for awhile. Usually she chews on it for a few minutes and then falls asleep. My young male is some what of a maniac and has some mouth issues, he has some anxiety with bumpers and dokens and I dont want to be adding to the issues by giving him a rawhide to chew on. He has been through force fetch but still is has what I call a nervous mouth he always wants to be chomping on something. Still being very young I would think this is something he will likely grow out of but as I said I don't want to be adding insult to injury here.
With out something for him to do he simply cant be trusted in the house yet, but I really would like to have him in the house in the evenings so my family and I can enjoy his company in the cold winter months.
