BetterBone makes safe bones for dogs that are 100% nylon-free: PEFC sustainably forested wood flour and renewable sugarcane oil. That's all.

Size:Small (Dogs under 25 lbs)

Got a puppy or adult doggo who can't seem to stop his destructive chewing habits? You need a durable dog chew toy to keep your dogs busy and to chew safely. And we got ya.

The BetterBone HARD is a nylabone alternative chew toy made specifically for aggressive chewers and free from allergens and micro plastics. This is the perfect supplement for bully sticks as it won't splinter or cause a choking hazard. How does it work? The bones eventually flake into digestible pieces of cellulose to protect the teeth and it's enamel.

BetterBone makes safe bones for dogs that are 100% nylon-free and made with only two natural ingredients: PEFC sustainably forested wood flour and renewable sugarcane oil. That's all. This chew toy is 2-5% harder and also 5-10% more durable than typical nylon dog chews. It's also unflavored, making it a safe treat for dogs with allergies! We are in love with this natural, eco-friendly alternative to nylabone - you and your pup will be too!

Try it with this cool Treat Clincher for hours of fun!

My 3 dogs love these. They are very small dogs but they are very aggressive chewers. These BetterBones are holding up well.
No mess, and no stink - two big advantages!

Jo Shoemaker
Aggressive Chewer Safely Satisfied

My 10-month-old rescue hound puppy is settling into his forever home. He is our first dog, so we're learning what he likes and what is safe. We tried a nylon bone when we realized he loves hard chews, but within 10 minutes his gums were bleeding. Better Bone is the perfect solution. Our power pup put some dents in it in the first 20 minutes, but the material "flakes", so there are no stiff or sharp edges to hurt his gums or teeth. He's been happily chomping for about three weeks now, and there's a long way to go.

Hi Jo - Yeah! This is what we love to hear! We're thrilled your rescue pup is having a good safe plastic free chew.

Gina Whiting
Feedback on the dog bones for hard chewers

The bones are very durable, and I think they are a lot safer for my dogs. That said, they don't chew on them as long and I think that may be because they are used to nylabones and bonabones that have chicken and beef flavors often times. They do like to play with them though and that is a good thing. Thanks so much- Gina W.

Hi Gina- We're happy that your pups like the BetterBones. This particular bone has zero flavor, as that is the most sustainable 'flavor' right now. We stay away from anything with beef or lamb flavors or meats because these are have the worst impact on the planet. We hope to carry some more eco friendly flavors in the future.

Great for my Pom mix!

My Pomeranian mix is about 8 months old and going through her last teething phase. I gave her Nylabones, but she was chewing off little pieces and SWALLOWING them. I bought her this bone so I knew she wouldn't be swallowing plastic. She took to it right away and it holds up even better than a Nylabone!

Eek! Plastic isn't made for anyone to digest - especially our pets. We're so thrilled you found these safer BetterBones for your sweet Pom.

Natalie Zellers
Best chew bone!

FINALLY! One my dog can't actually eat and it's not made of plastic, this is so great will be ordering more!

Hi Natalie - We're thrilled you're happy with the BetterBone!

Each of our products is designed to ensure the least amount of waste possible by using organic materials like hemp, organic cotton, natural rubber, and more. Many are even compostable. We will never produce products with plastic or silicone that might be harmful to your pet's health.

We believe that leading the pathway towards a more sustainable future is possible not just for our pets, but for our world as well.
