What kind of bone is good for my pomeranian?

My dog is a Pomeranian. She is about 5 years old. She can chew up a semi soft bone in less than a couple of hours and I'm wondering if anyone has any idea what kind of bone I could give her that will last longer. I don't want to give her something too hard that would possibly hurt her teeth though.

Raw beef bones are good (not cooked). You can get them from a butcher, just tell them that you want to buy one (or two) for your dog. It usually isn't much. It won't hurt her teeth. I have seen little toy dogs eat raw beef bones before. I'm sure that she'd be very busy with a big bone for quite a while.

a small bone that wont chip. maybe a milkbone or those ones that clean the teeth. you could just go to the petstore and ask them what bone would be good.

Hard bones are good for strengthening teeth. But it's normal for dogs to chew up bones in just an hour or so. Just depends on the dog and the type of bone.

I give my Pomeranian the small dingo bones… they are the perfect size, and keep her pretty busy for hours… and I don't beleive they will hurt her teeth at all… the bones are made of rawhide

Well definitely don't give her cooked bones as they break up easily and can splinter your dog's gums or he/she could choke on a small chunk. Perhaps a real hard jerky liver bone from the vet or pet store will do. Butcher scrap bones are okay as long as it's raw and big enough for your dog to not be able to swallow it.

HINT: If you want the butcher bone to last longer leave a bit of meat left on it or smear peanut butter on the bone. Then she/he will be spending longer trying to demolish the bone.
