A few weeks back I was reading one of the blogs that I follow and came upon a product that completely intrigued me. The product was an all NATURAL ANTLER DOG BONE TREAT. I thought the entire concept was pure genius and thought they would be perfect for Dakota.
Before I continue, let me tell you that I STILL believe in these products, AND that I have a strange dog.
I had contacted The Peak Antler Company asking if I could hold a give-away and do a review and they enthusiastically agreed.
I was given a couple of samples of Antler Dog Bone treats for Dakota to try (one medium and one large)…before I continue I want to share information with you that The Peak Antler Company graciously provided:
“Antler dog bones are set apart from traditional bones as they will not stain your carpet, splinter or turn into slimy goo AND they last much longer than other dog chews. They are naturally shed deer or elk antler pieces, NO fillers, preservatives, added color or anything else! It’s just a bone the way nature intended! No animals are hurt in the collection of this bone!
The Peak Antler Company’s all natural antler dog bone products were started by the family dog Aussie, an Australian Shepherd/Dingo mix rescued from a local shelter. Our main work involves Antler Chandeliers, Antler Lamps and Antler Furniture. Aussie would sneak into the shop and steal antler pieces. She would run off into the yard and chew on them for days. She wouldn’t give them back even when I caught her stealing “red-pawed”. We came home one day to find she had discovered the antlers in the coffee table as well, which was not so cute or innocent. It became obvious she loved antler more than any other bone or puppy chew. I cut up a few antler pieces for her in hopes of preventing more theft and save our furniture. It worked! Everyone was happy and the furniture was saved! Soon after, a friend had an adorably large Black Labrador Retriever puppy who also discovered antler accent furniture in their home. We shared an antler with Kona which saved not only the furniture but the sweet puppy from any further “time outs”. They began asking for more antler pieces for their friends dogs and the news spread fast. It grew organically into a business by demand, just the way nature intended.
We offer 2 lines in four sizes to offer a good gnawing selection. Our dog bones are naturally shed antlers, gathered in the forest or on ranch lands at various times of the year, they are all weathered at different stages.
The economy line is slightly more weathered which leads to discoloration and more hairline cracking.
We recommend our premium line for very aggressive chewers as they are more dense which helps them last longer and have less chances of cracking.”
As I mentioned earlier I BELIEVE in these Antler Bones. The problem is: Dakota doesn’t. Dakota is a strange dog (sorry, but he is!) He hates certain things that other dogs love, maybe it isn’t strange, call it quirky.
I am still intrigued by the Antler Bones, I still think the concept is ingenious and I would love nothing more than to see a dog actually ENJOYING these because I am CERTAIN that they will!!
I waited to post about these bones because I thought they would be an ideal give-away for the Holiday Season!! While YOU are groovin’ to “Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer” your dog can be enjoying chewing on Antlers!

We received no compensation for this review. We were given 2 bones for Dakota to test. When he didn’t care for the first one (as I said that is HIM, I am CONFIDENT another dog WILL like these!) I reserved the second for the give-away!
