Please help. I need a dog toy for a big dog that can last more than 1 day without being destroyed

Preferably from Amazon if possible
I’ve bought bully boxes, kongs, antlers, rubber treat balls. He loses interest with the antlers etc if he figures out he can’t rip them apart, the rubber treat ball was a winner but at £12 didn’t last more than a couple of days.

I’ve bought those Hide shaped rings and bones but he mullers them to mush and then throws up a white foam mush. They are off the list!

I found west paw zogoflex toys to be the only ones that withstood my dogs puppy destructive phase.

They are quite expensive and rather odd looking but are still going strong and he is 4 years old this year.

I bought a suede toy from The Little Pet Biscuit Company, the Percy Pig.
It is still going strong after a few months.
It has a plastic bottle in it that can be replaced.

It's the only toy she hasn't shredded in a couple of hours.

Kong 'wild knots' bear x-large and kong 'wubba' are the toys of choice for my great dane boxer cross.
The bear does get pulled apart eventually but she really enjoys them for a long time first.

We got our super chewer the Kong Jumbler ball - which is great if you can bear the squeak - and Bojafa balls, which you can put treats in, between the 'teeth'. Our were from amazon but I'm sure you can get them elsewhere. They're still going strong after 2 months.

After a quick google, it’s the Bojafa balls we have and he has destroyed within days without adding treats!

Chuck it balls have survived the very intense attention of a Jack Russell here

Kong wobbler is too big for most dogs to get their jaws around and destroy...

Our big dog (no longer with us) used to get those floating bouy things that tell you where lobster pots are, they lasted for ages!

We buy Kong Extreme, the black ones, they do get destroyed eventually but only after about 6-10 months

I second the black kong extremes. We fill them with smash (instant mash potato) and chopped carrot and put them in the freezer. Bought 2 per dog so one per dog always in the freezer. We also got weighted blue feeding cones with one small hole at the top (we did have to make the hole bigger to fit the kibble we use in). Can’t remember the brand. We put their dry food in the top and the dogs have to tap the cones to get their food. Makes food time last up to 20 mins rather than 15 seconds.

Can we see a picture of your dog OP? I need to see the face of the doggy who destroyed thst Kong 😂 I used to have a rottweiler and he was the same, toys and chews didn't last two minutes, so I used to get proper bones from the butchers. He absolutely loved those!

vanillandhoney Fri 12-Jun-20 10:20:04

I gave up with with dog toys for our beagle - everything was destroyed in seconds, and it was actually quite dangerous because he was ripping bits off and swallowing them. The only toy he has now is a Chuck-it ball which has lasted over a year of playing and chewing. They're expensive but they do last well - I wouldn't waste my money on anything else really.

If your dog is a chewer then go for natural treats - raw bones are excellent and can't really be destroyed. Once they've got the marrow out, you can fill it with whatever you want - peanut butter, dog food, mashed potato, mashed banana, cheese, tuna etc. Things like stuffed hooves are good too and once they've got the stuffing out, the hooves themselves last ages, though they do smell!

Oh he's beautiful! Look at that smile!
My mastiff x had a ginormous black Kong which lasted ages, and we used to buy footballs from sports direct. Took seconds to pop but he still loved them for ages afterwards.

mogloveseggs Fri 12-Jun-20 12:30:54

Oh and those bones that are stuffed with marrow. Made the most disgusting noise trying to get the marrow out but kept him entertained. Then I stuffed the middle with cheese and treats when it had gone.

JesusInTheCabbageVan Fri 12-Jun-20 12:32:37

Yak milk chews might keep him occupied for a bit? They're a bit more chewable than antlers, but still very hard-wearing.

HelmutShmacker Fri 12-Jun-20 12:32:47

What a magnificent beast he is!!!

JesusInTheCabbageVan Fri 12-Jun-20 12:33:27

And he's gorgeous star

Probably not what you want, but my step-brother nicked a traffic cone for his dog. Lasted more than a couple of days, though.

Windyatthebeach Fri 12-Jun-20 12:50:44

Nerf do ddog toys. We have had success with a red snake...
Husky destroys everything in less than half an hour..

And here was I thinking that my nights of pinching traffic cones at 3am on the way home were days gone by.... grin

I have a dachshund who can destroy toys in under a minute.

What are the hide toys you mention @GazingAndGrazing ? Mine has suede toys from Green&Wild that last longer than most. But we have to supervise as he occasionally swallows bits.

He absolutely loves soft toys. Much more than kongs and hard chews. So mostly we give him soft toys and just accept that they’re going to be destroyed.

But we do also him give harder chews and kongs as well as things like pizzle sticks, rabbit ears, pork rolls etc.

A Kong Squeezz dumbbell cannot be taken apart despite the best efforts of my Ridgeback. He loves it; it's noisy though!!!

Your dog looks gorgeous.
