My two Aussies love these. I give them to them after they eat their food, and it keeps them occupied for as long as I let them have them. I love that their is no concern with splintering. The downside is they are best used outside only until all of the meat is chewed off as they have a strong smoky odor (in a good way!) and are a little oily. They may be too rich for dogs with sensitive stomachs. Another caution would be that one of my dogs learned to toss the bone so it crashes on a hard surface and little chunks will break off the ends. After about 2 weeks once the meat is chewed off and they lose interest, I smear a little peanut or almond butter in the ends and store them in the freezer and they absolutely love it!
Great real bones by C. Bell from Pleasant Gap, PA11/09/2011
After finding out that my local pet store quit handling real bones I decided to try the Merrick G.I Bones and I am glad I did. With most other bones I have purchased, I would have to buy a couple extra due to the fact that most would crack after about 10 min. but the Merrick bones are great and have not cracked or splintered ever. With 2 labs, we all need the bones to keep our sanity. I would highly recommend them if your dogs love real bones.
A serious bone! by Buttercup672 from Austin, Texas11/19/2012
This is some bone! My Cocker Spaniel really
liked it, although it's a bit to big for him. The
next size down is better. But this is a great
bone for the bigger guys! All Merrick products
are good. All natural, and made in USA!
This is the second year in a row I've purchased these for my boxer. They would get a 5 star but the product comes with the small ends of the adjoining bone still attached. I have to watch and wait till they are almost torn away and then cut them off. If they were swallowed they might cause an intestinal problem. The photo does not show this. Once I've removed the troublesome parts, the bone is an every night hit until every tidbit of meat and flavor are gone.

LOVE THIS BONE!!! by linda802/17/2011
LOVE the Sarge!!! Has lots of "beef jerky" type dried meat on the outside, smells like bacon.
This bone is HUGE, but my little guys (20 lbs) love it so much, and they unfortunately stopped making the smaller Sarge Jr, so I buy the Sarge! It lasts a LONG time, then they have the bare bone to chew on after the dried meat is gone. Keeps em busy!!!
I love this product and will no longer buy bones anywhere else. The best thing is they are made in the USA. There is quite a bit of meat on them and they are roasted nicely. My dog loves these more than other bones I've bought in the past. She will chew on them for a week or so at a time. They are at least 7" long. They are the same price as bones I've received elsewhere that were made in China and Brazil. I am much happier knowing I am buying dog products made in the USA. It is worth my piece of mind.
Great bones for a great price! by lyrajayne from Long Island12/31/2012
The first time I ordered a case of these bones the UPS guy left them on the stoop while my dog was outside. When she found the box she could smell them through all the packaging and started chewing on the box! Sufficed to say she loves them so I ordered her another case for Christmas. I give her one about once a month so this case lasts a whole year. For less than $3 each you get some huge long-lasting top quality bones.
Great Bones! by kb from kent, wa11/16/2011
These are the best bones ever. I give these to my dogs once a week and they just love them! They spend about 2 hrs just gnawing on them and you don't have to worry about them swallowing any pieces like a rawhide.
great product for aggressive chewers! by Lynn from NH01/31/2013
The 7" G.I. Merrick bone is wonderful for both of my very aggessive chewers. I have a lab and a great dane and they get one of these per week and it keeps them busy for hours. My dane tends to have a sensitive stomach and this does not bother her in the least. After the initial hours of chewing they continue to work on the exterior and the interior to pick it clean. I would highly recommend this product and buying in the bulk box saves alot of money!
Merrick GI Bone 7" by kajaffe from New England07/14/2012
Our dogs love the Merrick GI Bones. They even play with them after they have devoured every sliver of edible material off the bone.
