Re: Whose pets love their feathers and fur?
My dog has a bunch of chew toys. We're careful about what we get for her. Most are made from natural materials such as raw hide, a few are a very tough plastic material. I worry about what she might ingest.
IMO, if you give the dog a real hide, and promote the chewing, they may not know the difference with any other similar material, so that could create problems with your other tying materials should the dog get the opportunity.
I also wouldn't give a tanned hide to my dog because of the chemicals used in tanning. May not ever be a problem, but I wouldn't want to take the chance.
