Forget about cute soft cuddly ducks and green tennis balls; Lady would destroy those in about 2.5 seconds! Even though Lady doesn’t have the strongest jaws in the world, she will without doubt focus all her energy onto any part of the toy that seems weakest and will exploit that fervently until it’s destroyed. She almost seems proud of it after the fact. Lucky me huh?
So I came up with a partial list of supposedly tough or more chew tolerant toys that Lady has tried including those that worked and didn’t work. I say partial because I can’t possibly remember all the toys she has had. Anyway, this is for all my fellow dog owners who have suffered my same grief of seeing that $10 toy end up shredded to bits by a very happy pooch shortly after purchase. Maybe something from this list will solve your doggie chewing problem.
Review of Durable Dog Toys
This stayed intact for a month when she was a tiny puppy! These days, this type of toy can only be used if you play tug of war with her and take it away right after the game. If this toy was left with her, she’d pull the threads apart in 5 minutes or so.
Lady concentrated on a corner and tore it apart after a couple of days.
This was one of the decent ones that lasted about a year or so. She had this one for almost a year before she took a huge hunk off the end.
This one was really disappointing. It looked and felt tough but a mere hour later it was already destroyed.
6. Kong Classic Dog Chew Toy (Recommended)
This is a keeper! She has the large one and the medium-sized one. Neither of them have ever been nicked much less destroyed!
This lasted until she realized she could tear off the flaps on the entrance to where you insert the treats.
8. JW Pet Company MegaLast Bone Dog Chew Toy, LARGE (Recommended)
JW Pet Company Megalast Bone Dog Chew Toy, MEDIUM (Recommended)
Both of these have held up very nicely with no problems for at least a year now!
This lasted for about a year! Then suddenly, she took off two of the pieces.
10. Petstages ORKA Dog Tire Chew Toy (Recommended)
This luckily is still around after a year and a half. No problems so far! She also LOVES playing with this one in particular.
11. Petco Rubber Football with Squeaker Dog Chew Toy (DISCONTINUED)
This one didn’t stand a chance even in her puppy days. She chewed off every little spike until it was smooth and then tore the squeaker out.
12. Petco Spiked Dumbbell with Ring Rubber Dog Chew Toy (DISCONTINUED)
This also failed the puppyhood teeth test.
Hope this helps!
