We believe that health issues arise from all of the
heavy processing and harmful insecticides and chemical
fertilizers in foods. At the Land of PureGold we only carry those
treats and chews that we would allow our own dogs to eat. Chews must be natural
and free-range. For that reason, the cost may
be somewhat higher. But, honestly, we believe our furkids are more than worth
it. They have such a limited life span with us as it is, so we figure it is the
least we can do to try and extend it by providing only the best.

All dogs need to chew. Although we cannot detect any smell to shed hardened
antlers, dogs have a natural prey drive that allows them to zero in on the
"wild" smell. No other chew can appeal to this power of instinct except real
Our antler chews are safe, natural, healthy, odor-free and long
lasting. They are provided to us from a family owned and operated business based
in Colorado, where domestic elk has been raised since 1995. All of the
antlers come from the family's ranch raised, free-range Rocky Mountain
You will notice speckling on the outside of them. Do not worry,
it is definitely not mold. The elk rub there antlers on the trees to clean the
velvet off the outside. That is why some of them are smooth and some are rough,
depending on how much the elk rub. The folks at the ranch do not wash the
antlers so sometimes they have spots on them from the tree sap and sometimes
from fly's and insects. The reason they don't wash them is because they never
know what might affect different dogs and by doing so it could produce an
environment for mold. When washed it also makes the blood tissue a different
color. They figure, and we agree, that natural is always better.
Please realize that NO animals
are ever harmed in the harvesting process. Each year the bull elk re-grow a new set of antlers. If the antlers are not cut
off, they naturally fall off when the new set starts to grow. This hard antler
is cut into pieces which make ideal bones for dogs to chew on.
Antlers last for months!
We believe when it comes to
bones & chews, one SUPER SIZED version
honestly fits all. These antlers may present in two different sizes, as there
are really no exacts when it comes to such a natural product. Your antler may be
approximately 11 to 12 inches in length and 1½ inches in diameter or 7 to 10 inches in length
and 2 inches in diameter. Price:
SUPER SIZED Antler Chew
We only recommend & sell chews that are thicker and thus less
likely to splinter.
However, depending on your dog's
aggressiveness of chewing, anything is destructible.
It is always important to remember that you must supervise your dog
when utilizing this, or any kind, of chew.
The photo here shows the different shapes that these
antlers may be when cut. Some have a pointier end than others. If you
prefer a piece that is pointy or full on the end, just let us know. Otherwise,
you may get one or the other.
