My large dogs eat Pedigree dry dog food, and I also feed them Pedigree wet food on occasion so I am familiar with the brand and feel that it's a pretty decent brand. My dogs love the foods and treats they offer, and I think their food line is very reasonably priced. Unfortunately the jumbone is way too highly priced. I've checked with different retailers, grocery chains, as well as pet stores and they are all about the same. I have 6 dogs and in order to get them all one I would need to spend way too much money. Its too bad they are so expensive because all of my dogs absolutely love them. They eat them all in one sitting, and it doesn't take them long to have it gone. They do make a crumbly mess, and you wouldn't want them to eat this on the carpet or furniture because the inside of the bone there is colored stuff which I imagine would probably stain some things. They don't last as long as one would think but they do take them a little while. They have sizes for any dog, and they are highly available. With so many dog chews and treats on the market, I don't really buy the jumbone very often because I can get a box or bag of treats and bones for way less money then it would cost me to get each of my dogs a jumbone. If they ever do go down in cost I would definately buy more. I just can't see buying treats that will only get my dogs one a piece for more money then it costs to buy a bag of food. These are better than real bones, rawhide, and the nylabone chews as far as flavor and fun, but they don't last as long as any of them. If you are looking to buy a special treat for your dog this is good for that or for households with one or two dogs so it won't cost a fortune to treat them. But people who have a few dogs or who want something that will last most of the day, this isn't a good choice. My older dog who is missing teeth can also eat these without problem so they are easier to chew than you would think by feeling the package. There are definately better treats!
