My choice for a hard chew is an antler, deer or elk. (Tennis balls are like cotton balls).
These chews last for months (I prefer the whole; not split), as the outer “shell” is dang near impenetrable. Well, unless you have a Weim (or other power jawed cruncher). They love ’em so much they call smell the difference between three different antlers. Tekoa, my male, is so peculiar, he’ll howl (until I get it for him) if Tahlia has “his” antler. My fav is when they walk around like they have a pacifier/cigar in their mouth.
This is where I’ve been getting my chews from (now, off to find a ball they last more than a few days).
