Definitely want to get a stainless steel bowl. Easy to clean, drool, spit, partially digested food and dog hair easily wash out, no sticking to the surface. If necessary can always use a brillo pad or similar without causing any problem.
If like one of my aussie pups your dog tends to put their foot in the bowl and so knock it over you can get the stainless kind with the rubber gasket around the bottom. I’ve never had either of the two dogs tip that kind over.
My vet had me get ‘bully sticks’. They are dehydrated bull horns. They smell something awful but the dogs think that’s great.
Luckily they don’t leave any smell behind such as bad breath.
They can be gotten in various sizes from small little sticks about 3″ long to great hugh one’s a foot long and thick as the dogs leg.
I was concerned that when chewed into small pieces they might get stuck in their gut but my vet tells me not so. However, if I see them with smaller pieces I take them away just as a cautionary point.
The older dog has been chewing on these for many years without problem. The younger not so long just because he has fewer years under his belt.
The local Pet store has them but they are sold individually and are expensive. I found several online stores where you can get a whole bag of them at considerably less price including shipping.
