Nylabone Dog Products Made in America

Our dogs have always been a part of the family. The travel with us, they sleep with us, and I’ve been accused more than once of spoiling them. Unlike kids, dogs don’t have to grow up to become responsible citizens, so what’s the harm? Sure, we’ve had issues with Ezra, our loyal but grumpy chihuahua mix growling and barking at strangers, and with Milo, our lovable but confused beagle mix destroying household objects with his aggressive chewing. But in return, our dogs have given us unconditional love and companionship.

I’ve talked about the major recalls of toys made in China that were a major inspiration in my challenge to find American made products. Around this same time, you might remember hearing about a massive pet food recall after pets around the country became sickened. The culprit was found to be melamine contamination of wheat gluten in millions of bags of pet food. The source was a manufacturer in China that was illegally adding the melamine, typically used as in plastics and fertilizer, to the food to increase it’s protein content inexpensively. When it comes to our beloved pets, why take the chance with imported treats?

“What do you mean I have to share?”

If you have a dog, you undoubtedly already know the Nylabone brand, and probably own at least one of their nylon chewing toys or edible treats. What you probably didn’t know is that nearly all of Nylabone’s products are made in the USA (look for the flag-waving lab on the packaging). I was thrilled to receive a gift bag of American made Nylabone products for Ezra and Milo to enjoy.

The DuraChew bones, built with textured nubs designed for powerful chewers, were an instant favorite for Milo. He also loved the Dental Chews, which come in fun dinosaur shapes! They are designed to help fight tartar and bad breath, something both my guys are in desperate need of! Ezzy favored the NutriDent edible chews. They both loved the treats, which come in flavors like Pomegranate and Cranberry…yum! The wishbone shaped treat was perfect for them to play together, each grabbing an end for some tug-of-war fun.

I was impressed by the durability of the Nylabones. Milo usually destroys toys so quickly it’s not even worth buying them. And his destruction isn’t limited to toys. Other items that have fallen victim to his insatiable need to chew include a cell phone, a remote, multiple pairs of shoes, several baby toys, books, frames… pretty much anything he can get his mouth on.  The Nylabones showed lots of teeth markings, but minimal damage after a week of intensive gnawing.


I’m genuinley impressed that this major, well-known and respected brand manufactures their pet products in the US. Nylabone saw the demand for safe products that owners could trust and targeted this group of devoted “pet parents.” The company also provides their products to animal rescues and shelters. As the owner of two rescue pups and a former dog foster parent, this means a lot to me. Nylabone is offering a lucky reader one of these amazing prize packs comprised of $50 worth of dog treats and toys!

      Your right, his confusion only adds to his lovable nature! He’s literally too dim-witted to even consider being mean!

      I’m way past the guilt now!! I love the work you do for shelter animals and it’s great to hear that you’ve run into Nylabone this way. I was really excited when I learned they work with shelters and rescues.

    Oh my dogs love these!! I like them because they last forever, unlike the “others” that just get thrown out. I have one very powerful chewer and one passive one but they get their teeth very clean. GREAT post. I’m going to enter the giveaway for my dogs but just want to say thanks for keeping us posted on such quality products.

    my dogs ivan and dashy LOVE the dental chew (the one with the orange twist in the middle) and the wishbones!!

  3. Cynthia Chouinard says

    I have a Chihuahua and she likes all of your Nylabone products. She eats the treat out of the little bone that is bacon flavor,we buy her the toys,treats and the small 3 way toy she likes to chew on.

  4. Julie E. says

    I have a 3 month old puppy and we went away to a friends for the weekend and her favorite item was the Nylabone she spied at my friends. We have one at home but did not travel with it.

  5. anne hill says

    we have used the DuraChew® Double Action® Chew forever for our dog ollie – it’s the only thing that lasts. she loves them!

  6. Christina says

    Lily loves every Nylabone we have ever purchased for her, but we tend to gravitate toward the dura chews as she is a pretty intense chewer and they seem to really last for her. :) Her favorite so far has been the white/red bacon flavored bone dura chew.

      Aww, it seems like the littlest guys are the least aware of their size! My chi mix is the same way!

  8. Leah Baird says

    My dogs would love edible chicken nylabones. I have a german shepherd and rat terrier, they fight a lot for bones, they also destroy a lot of toys so these toys would be great.

  9. Danetta says

    My Great Dane would like the Rhino Super Tuff Bone. My Chiweenie would like the Healthy Edibles Bacon and my Chihuahua would like the Chubby Buddies Mouse.

  10. Marcia says

    I think my dogs would most like the Happy Time!™ Long-Lasting Chews. They’re so spoiled and love their treats but they are usually gone within a couple seconds!

    My dog is a Golden Retriever aka Hoover Vaccuum. She loves all treats (and food, and trash, and anything else she can swallow)

  13. DAYLE BUTLER says

    Our German Shepherd male doggie would adore this
    prize. He will be chewy heaven.
    thanks for the giveaway, great product

  14. Trina Coleman says

    My dog would love the Rhino Bone. But there are so many great things that he would actually love it is hard to narrow it down.
