Hello all! I was curious if anyone had any suggestions for some good, pretty much indestructible dog toys? My pup pretty much destroys every toy we give him. He’s a big player and chewer. The only toys he hasn’t been able to destroy so far are the extreme line from Kong and then these hard plastic chewing rings. He absolutely loves playing so we’re constantly on the search for a new toy that may survive him lol. Any suggestions?! Thank you bees!
This is my bubs, not that it’ll help suggestions. I just wanted to share my pupperoni!

I have yet to find an indestructable dog toy! My large dog even destroyed those large kongs. Will follow this thread for ideas from others!

applecheeks: My initial reaction to the title of this post was “they do not exist!” 🙂 My pup is also a very powerful chewer and destroys most toys (I agree, the tough Kongs are pretty good – although he still manages to chew out chunks of those, too). One of the best things I’ve found are natural antlers. You can find fairly large ones and while they do wear down, they tend to do it in little tiny shavings instead of cracking and coming apart in chunks. It takes my pup quite awhile (many months) to get through one and I’m never worried about splinters or sharp edges with it.

Nyla bones!! My dog is a big chewer, so we’ve completely stopped giving her the softer rubber toys, and anything stuffed (it’s literally destroyed in under 10 minutes). She absolutely loves the nyla bones, and lines them all up in her bed and switches off on chewing different ones. Some last longer than others (we have one we got her when she was a puppy that’s still in one piece), but I’d say they all last at least 6 months.

We give our dog tires from the pet store (the bigger ones, not the smalle ones). She still is able to destroy them, but more slowly.

Our dogs aren’t super destructive but I like the Charming Pet Balloon Latex toys. One of the few toys I’m comfortable with them playing with without monitoring them. We had the pig for like 18 months months before one of them managed to rip a hole in it.

I really don’t think that indestructable dog toys exist. I was going to suggest that extreme chew line from Kong but you already found it.
How old is your pup? Mine would destroy toys and tennis balls quickly when she was younger, but now at 4.5 years old she is more gentle on her toys. And if she does rip one open, I shove the stuffing back and quickly sew up the hole. At least gives it a bit more longevity then just throwing it away.

There’s a line of dog toys that are called toughies or mighty toy, you can find them online or in pet stores. They are very hard to destory and they rate them on how hard they are to destroy. They get tested on lions and tigers. The mighty toys are a bit less strong the the toughies (one are all patterned toys one look similar to other dog toys just thicker). My girl has killed one of the toughies that was a pig, which I had to immeditaly replace since she loved it. But that’s the only one that been destoryed. She’s stopped tearing apart all toys now for the most part so even the regular toys she’s more careful with.

cyan: If they consume the pieces that come off is that harmful? He tries to eat everything he can lol, he ate his baby teeth when they fell out even 😢 Lol. Also do you know if they can cause aggression? Moreso than him I would worry about out beagle who gets very aggressive over food so if it was like a bone or cow hide I would worry with her.
lula0508: I believe the rings (he has three of the same kind lol) we got him are nyla bone brand but I could be mistaken. I’ll have to look into their other options!
heputaringonit: Hmmm, we always joke around and say a tire (off a car though) would be the only thing he cpirlnt destroy. I’ll have to look into these though. Are they just in their normal toy aisle?
LGenz: I’m definitely going to look into this! He loves clothes toys but can pretty much tear up any type of cloth, even like what feels super thick and durable to me. Maybe this would be a better solution. Thank you!
freckles071611: We’ve had to sew up many a toys! Lol. Not just with him lol our other two as well. He’s just over a year and still very much puppy-like lol so at this point the goal is to find something to withstand the vigorous chewing and playing!

We found a tug rope on amazon made of fleece instead of string or rope. My dog will chew off the strings in normal ropes but so far (2 months) and she hasn’t ripped it apart yet or been able to eat off any pieces. We usually choose “stuffed” toys without the stuffing. It helps but they’re not indestructible. We also found a solid rubber ball which one of our dogs loves. We used to use tennis balls but those only last a few hours before it’s in pieces all over my living room. We also found beef smoked tendons made in the US naturally on amazon, they are pricey but they keep our pups busy for hours eating them.

I second Nylabones! She loves them and we’ve gotten her all different sizes/shapes but she prefers a certain shape, so we get her that one about every 6 months.

applecheeks: Two words: Moose. Antler.
Make sure you buy the tines instead of the paddle kind. I have a St. Bernard and a Cane Corso and the antlers I buy last for at least 6 months. And my Cane Corso is a serious chewer! If you sign up for emails and like them on facebook you’ll see they have sales often. I stock up when they do their 35% off 🙂

tksjewelry: We avoid meats and things such as that because our beagle gets very aggressive with food somout vet doesn’t advise it. We do however give them carrots and greenbeans! He loves rope toys but like you said the strings all come apart and that’s no fun when he uses the bathroom lol.
bridetobeinCLE: Thank you! I’ll be looking into this! Hopefully we’ll find something that’ll last him! Lol
