With beautiful weather this season, we tried to do as much hiking as possible. This was Dexter’s 3rd hike and we got lucky to see a black bear.
Dexter behaved admirably with a good level of alertness and a bit of fear/uncertainty to be expected from a young dog.

Dexter plays with elk antlers. You can buy them online or at a pet store.
Elk and deer antlers are great chew toys. They do not chip and don’t smell. They last a long time and dogs love them.
However, often the dog gets bored with the bone or finds another toy to play with. At $15-$20 per antler, it’s too expensive to throw out.
So here is a solution, thanks to a Facebook user from Cane Corso group. Boil the remaining piece in chicken broth for 10-15 minutes.
Dexter has two antlers to play with and he has been ignoring the older one. I used chicken broth cubes and boiled both antlers with a cube for about 10 minutes.
Result: Dexter could not stop chewing them and kept switching between the two.
Great rescue of an expensive toy and the dog couldn’t be happier.
