Hi, I have a lovely little lady she is 7 months, but she destroys every toy she has, nyla bones get chewed into bits that she could swallow. Stuffed toys, all the stuffing is out. Anything with a label gets ripped off.

Anyone have a toy that is good for chewing that doesnt come apart?

She licks kongs, doesn't chew them, I'm after something for her chewing needs. smile

Yak chews are great.

Antlers go down well with ours.

Nerf make ddog toys. Even our Husky hasn't managed to destroy them. Worth the money as aren't cheap.

Do the yak and antlers smell?

Pizzle sticks worked for a night or two but she got it down to a tiny stump and had to take it away in case she chocked. But my god the smell! 🤮

Antlers don’t smell at all.

Fresh marrow bone - obviously you'll have to throw it away once it's finished with but it excellent for nutrition and will give 2 full days of happiness. You can a load and put them in the freezer.

Agree with fresh raw bones.

Rope toys submerged in water and then frozen are great for keeping chewers cool in summer smile

Raw bones.
Cows feet (smelly).
Stuffed trachea.
Pig/rabbit/cow/goat ears.

Two days? Do you have a Chihuahua? My border collie demolishes them in less than an hour. Although he does enjoy that hour!

Antler last a few weeks, Pigs ears last about 30 mins, Pizzle ( Its a bulls Penis dried) lasts a couple of hours

I have heard of a few broken dog teeth from antlers - our dog used to love them but I can't face a clipped or lost tooth so we stick to marrow/shoulder/knuckle bones now. They're rock solid which is great as they last a long time, but not great if they bite down too hard as there's no 'give' smile

Rope toys. They do come apart eventually, but it takes my staffy about a week and she can chew most toys to pieces in a day

I just bought some antlers as the corners of our skirting boards had taken a pasting. Very popular and always chosen first when a selection of chews are around. Very sturdy and don't smell at all but now worried about broken teeth. Can you give a large marrow bone to a younger pup?

We’ve had some success with our SBT( I am honestly not a kong rep! grin) who is a lean mean toy destroying machine with..

Kong knots teddy......squeaky, fluffy toy joy with rope inside for reinforcement.

Kong squeaky tennis balls! Also taught her find it. Loves this.

Kong jumbler, squeaky ball inside a ball.

Kong wubbas and a kong wobbler which we feed her breakfast from.

Edible wise....yak bars and stag bars.

Antlers are great for hefty chewers but my working cocker can gnaw one down in a matter of days!

The extra strong nylabone bacon bone is lasting relatively well.

Anything too strong that doesn't degrade does not interest him, so it's a fine line grin

How do those with multiple ddogs manage handing out long lasting things? Our smaller ddogs would get bullied for theirs!
