If you've ever watched your dog dismember a plush friend in under an hour, you already know that not many chew toys are built to last. But buying new plushes, bones, ropes, and balls can really add up — not to mention the hassle of cleaning up and the cost of the vet visits. Luckily, there are some indestructible dog toys that were made with strong jaws in mind, to save you money and your pet's safety. These durable dog toys will even stand up to dedicated destroyers, and many come with money-back guarantees. Happy playtime!
Even strong chewers love to have a friend to cuddle. Hugglehound makes its out of strong rubber instead of plush, so Fido won't tear out the stuffing. They also squeak just like a traditional stuffed toy, which will entice your pup to play all day.
Most dog owners are already aware of KONG, the O.G. durable canine toy company. It has a long reputation of making chews with a distinctive bulbous shape that are perfect for stuffing with treats to keep Spot occupied for hours. This super-strong version will stand up to the jaws of steel.
Dog trainers and behaviorists often recommend antler chews for those who destroy less durable toys. They won't splinter or flake like some natural bones, and aren't sticky or smelly like rawhides. And because they're real organic matter, antlers come with the added benefit of vitamins and minerals like calcium and zinc and help with tartar control.
Lots of toys made for tug-o'-war can't stand up to strong pullers, but West Paw's made one that can. This S-shaped toy will stretch to twice its length and it's made of FDA-compliant materials so even your kid could chew on it. And because they come with a money-back guarantee, both your pup and your wallet will love it.
You may not know you're supposed to brush your dog's teeth, but they get tartar and plaque just like we do. Help stave off dental decay with a bone that does double-duty, like this nubbed Nylabone. It's long-lasting, ribbed to help clean their teeth, and flavored to keep Fido coming back for more.
Even aggressive chompers will take awhile to get through the flavored, dental-friendly Benebone. This one has ribbed edges to scrub their teeth and its ergonomic design helps them get a better grip on it. After all, even the most coordinated dogs don't have thumbs.
Let your dog "goughnuts" on a chewing ring that has a color-coded indicator to tell you when its time to take it away. The outer layer is green for "go," but the inner layer is red, for "stop." Once your dog gets to the red part, it's time to replace your Goughnut. Now why didn't we think of that?
A tennis ball is all well and good, but if you have a diligent chewer on your hands, you've probably seen inside one. Instead, pick up a ChuckIt! ball for better playtime with the family pup. It floats, it bounces, and its bright colors are easy to find in the grass. And the durable rubber material will last much longer than your standard ball.
The Hurley bone from West Paw has earned a cult following for a reason. Even the strongest chewers have a hard time even putting a dent in them, and their bright colors mean you don't lose the toy in the backyard or under the couch. They're also softer than many classic bones, so they won't dent up your hardwood floors.
Outward Hound has solved several stuffed toy issues all in one with their invincible stuffingless snake. It has squeakers that keep the noisy fun going when punctured, Chew Shield technology to stymie tough teeth, and double-stitched seams for extra durability. And because there's no fluff, there's no mess. It also comes in three sizes, so you can find the perfect fit, no matter how tiny your pup is.
Everyone loves a good game of Frisbee, and that includes your strong-jawed dog. But not all flying discs are made for their mouths. This one from tough toy manufacturer KONG is. It's strong enough for them to chew and soft enough to catch without irritating their gums. We call that a win-win.
OK, it's not actually made with diamonds. But this super-strong ball might as well be. It's nontoxic, BPA-free, and FDA-approved and can even go in the top rack of your dishwasher. The rubber is even infused with all-natural mint oil for a fresh scent. We can't promise it'll cure doggy breath, but every little bit helps.
You may never need to buy another rope toy if you invest in this Pacific Pups 11-toy variety pack. The braided toys come in a range of shapes and sizes, all of them made to withstand strong jaws. A portion of proceeds go to Pacific Pups Rescue, a nonprofit dog rescue organization. Give the gift of fun for your furry friend and a good life for others, all in one.
Dogs need teething toys just like babies do, but a lot of them aren't durable enough to last past the adorable puppy stage. Nylabones are the exception to that rule. They're a household name for a reason, and if you bring one home, you'll understand why.
For those of us who have ever seen the tires at the local auto parts store and thought "hmmm," KONG has done it again. This tire-shaped toy is made of KONG's signature super strong rubber and it's hollow, so you can fill it with tasty treats to keep Fido occupied. And you have to admit, the image of your pup chewing on a tire is pretty adorable.
