Hi all...Happy New Year to everyone. I was at Petsmart today and came across Greenies Smart Chew bones. They are kind of like a nylabone, but they look exactly like a greenie treat. Our puppy is too young for greenies, but she went absolutely nuts for this thing. So much that I'm going to go back and get a couple of more. They come in three different "chew" strengths and are non-edible (like nylabones). I was just curious if anyone else had tried them.

I saw those in one of my catalogues. Of course, Miss Lady would have nothing to do with something that wasn't edible!

Greenies has also come out with a peanut chew (peanut butter flavored I guess) that was really cute - shaped like a peanut.

Wouldn't you like to be the person who invented Greenies?????

Has anyone use both Greenies and Nylabones?  I am just wondering which one you prefer.  Right now I am giving the dogs Greenie bones and the flakes.

Lexi has a couple of the Nylabones that you don't eat. I've never gotten the edible kind. She loves the greenies though. She spends a couple hours trying to hide the bone and then she will finally lay down and eat it. If she can't find the "perfect hiding spot" she will walk around whining.

Hi, I did run out to Pet Smart and saw the new Greenie Smart Chews. They were on a special display and the stock was already getting low. The clerk said they were a brand new item. I bought one of each.. Hard, Medium and Soft because I didn't know which one mine would like. I think this will be good for Kallie because she gobbles Greenies up in about 10 minutes and sometimes throws up a chunk!!

That's what I love about SM.... we can share product info with each other.... how nice... thanks, Joe!!

Yep, that's the new one. They are non edible. They look like traditional Greenies treats, but are long lasting and not intended for consumption. They are a chew-bone like Nylabones. My puppy has both the flexible (clear) nylabones and the hard (white) nylabones, but she seems to prefer this Greenies bone the best. I got her the medium because I felt the soft was too soft. I think that would be best for a young puppy. The hard would be best for adult teeth. Unlike the nylabone, the Greenies bone is textured and has nubs, ridges, and bumps on it. All I know is that she hasn't stopped chewing it all afternoon!

Well, I just got home with my Greenies "Smart Chew" bones and my babies are going nuts over them. I got the "hard" one for Kallie and usually when I give her a bone she will walk around with it and maybe hide it but she laid down and went to town on it. Same with Catcher... I got him the "medium" and the "light". I gave him the medium first and he is loving it. They are both so quiet and just chewing away...... Ahhh, these things are the best!

oops sorry, I read that wrong I thought it was the Nylabones

So what is the difference between the Greenies and Greenies Smart Chew?

Are these different than the regular greenies?

Regular Greenies are a treat that dogs can eat and digest. The Smart Chew is a rubber type of chew toy that is not a food product. It looks almost exactly like a Greenie only it's made of plastic. I compared it to a nylabone because it feels like the flexible kind. The bone is green like a Greenie treat, but it doesn't break apart (unless old and worn like a kong or nylabone). I hope that makes sense. I haven't found a photo yet, and I don't know how to post one on here without changing my avatar. If anyone can give me a step by step, I can take a shot and post it.

okay I understand what you mean, looks like a Nylabone.

I dont know if Digby would like a Greenie she could not eat LOL  She loves her Greenies.

I tried the Nylabone Greenies, but she knew it was a fake Greenie, and would not touch it LOL

It actually looks like a Greenie but has the texture of a Nylabone. She might go for this because it really looks exactly like the Greenies treats.

edited to say that I just saw the photos...thanks for posting

Maybe Brink will like these. He quit liking greenies and only buried them
. I found them EVERYWHERE! But he loves his edible nylabones. Maybe he will like these too.

So are regular greenies better than edible nylabones? It takes Sadie about a week to work on a petite nylabone edible. Sassy is learning to. They are like a pacifier. Why would greenies be better? Mine have the nylabone rubber bones and aren't impressed. They also have those cornstarch bones and don't like them one bit.

Hi, are you saying that you are using the Nylabone brand of "Greenies"? If so, I had heard that they may not be as digestible as Greenies, but I heard that on MO. Of course we couldn't say brand names but through "code" it appears that was what someone who is knowledgeable said... !
