@MrsPanda99:  I second the Nylabone and Kong Extreme… we have a strong chewer too. “Long Lasting Chews” last about 30 seconds in my house. We avoid furry animals and basically any cheap toys.

Kong extreme! The black one that looks like a beehive, size XL. I have a 110 lb mastiff/boxer mix who is stronger than an ox. That is the only toy he has never chewed apart.

Our dog has a nylabone. He’s seriously had it for about a year and not much is gone. 

Too bad he threw up from the antler. Have you tried cow hooves? They stink but dogs love them.

Our fubaby is smaller but a major chewer (we can’t give her anything made for small dogs-has to be large or for extreme chewers) and one thing she really likes is bull pizzle.  Its kind of gross if you know what it is, but it keeps her occupied and actually takes her a few day (whereas most rawhides only last her a day at MOST).

As the PP’s have mentioned already, Nylabones are awesome for power chewers.  Our dog also really likes natural beef bones and they seem to hold her attention more than Nylabones.  However, I like to supervise her when she’s working on a cow bone because she tends to get sick if she’s been chewing it for more than an hour or so.  For tug and fetch toys, West Paw has an awesome line of indestructible dog toys.  We have the Bumi and the Hurley and both have held up really well.

The only toy my dog hasn’t been able to destroy is the black Kong. 

The nylabones did not last long with my dog. She can eat through most toys haha

@thegreeneyedkri:  hahah my SO was telling me about this, since our pup started to eat spots up out of the carpet, I am thinking of trying it. Is there a smell or anything, or is it just weird because of what it is?

@MrsPanda99:  I haven’t heard of antlers, BUT we got out dog this stick from Pet Smart that tastes like wood but it is safer and healthier. He chews on that constantly and can’t destory it. We are also using Kong toys.

Nylabones & Kongs last forever- our pitty loves to tear toys apart and has had hers for the last 3 years (and not for lack of trying to rip the shit out of it). She also loves elk & deer antlers we get from the local pet store- takes her 2+ hours to tear them up. I second the PP that recommended pizzle aka Bully Sticks. Really gross when you think you’re giving your dog a bull dick to chew on for hours but our pup loves it. If our girl is really good or its her birthday I’ll make her my doggie specialty- pizzle loolipops! I just put  a heap of creamy pnut butter on the end of a stick, flatten in out between wax paper, and freeze it!

Too bad he threw up with the antler. Are you sure that was what caused it?

Our girl won’t even look at Kongs or Nylabones so the only thing that will survive her is an antler. We’ve tried the stuffingless toys and they last a surprisingly long time for what they are. She rips the squeekers out pretty fast but after that the toy lasts a few weeks.

This weird pig toy also has lasted way longer than anyone would have liked. My mom gave it to us for mother’s day and it gets chewed on everyday and there’s no real sign of damage. The sound it makes is obnoxious though. We’ve had several friends threaten to steal and destroy it.
