Good toys for destructive, chewy dogs?

We have a collie x retriever 15 month old and She just destroys any toy I get her! She feels the need to chew, a lot, and most toys just get shredded as she's so rough with them.
The only thing she's not destroyed is a thick rope toy, but I'm getting a bit fed up with being bruised any time she flings it at me!
Any ideas very gratefully received...

I'd recommend the black kong range:

My powerful chewer has had toys from that range for over a year, and they still look brand new

I don’t have a destructive chewer but would like any suggestions for my dog. She likes to chew but some kind of interactive toy would also be good. She has a puzzle ball thing but something like that?

We have treat dispensing balls too. She threw them so hard at the ground they cracked!

I'm going to look into the black kong range and will report back.

So much for rope toy....

Our rope toy is deceased too.

I bought a Nylabone chicken flavour chew, supposedly max strength for serious chewers, for my cocker spaniel a few days ago from Homesense and she loves it. She's chewed it for a good while and it's not had too much taken off.
Another toy she's had for almost a year is a sprout from Aldi. It's flat and has a squeaker and she loves chewing it and it's still in pristine condition. Not sure how it would fare with a collie, but might be worth a look.

Kong extreme rubber toys were the only things to survive my spaniel.

Black kongs.
Chuck-it balls.
Natural chews.

I came here to recommend chicken flavoured bone toys too. Our dog is small, but very chewy and makes short work of all other toys.

My in laws use an antler bone for their Rottweiler. She’s had it a couple of years and it gets chewed daily. They just soak it in water once a month which revives it. You can get them in petshops.

We have an antler somewhere. Our old dog threw it and managed to smash a window which is why I've not got it out for new dog yet. Old dog was very calm in comparison.

The thought of antlers makes me 😷. Those and hooves and ears 🤮. Though I appreciate dogs are generally gross 😂

I have antlers here. No smell. Keeps mad pup occupied.
Rope toys aren’t great. They can chew bits off and ingest them.
I raw feed so mine also get meaty bones. But those are strictly for the garden!
I also tried a tree root chew!
Black Kong range is great. Try stuffing and freezing!!!

And my Skye Terriers ate them. confused I kid you not.
I’m thinking of resorting to lengths is sewer pipe next.

World War II Sea Mine. (live)

Like those red things you sometimes see on the prom.

My mum has a big German Sheppard, his favourite toy is an old car tyre.
Loves carrying it around, tossing it in the air and giving it a good chew.
He is only allowed to play with it outside.

Only any good if you have plenty of outdoor space. They live on a farm.

I buy yak chews. Mine wreck every other toy but chew away on yak chews hours.
