My dalmatian destroys EVERYTHING (but he’s so cute, though…..) – but we love antlers and the super strong nylabones. I don’t use the actual bone shaped ones, but they have these hard plastic ones for like “doggie birthday” and what not. Pongo has yet to destory his birthday nylabone and he’s had it for almost 9 months! PRAISE. 🙂

We like nylabones like this one:
and these from Hartz becuause they’re only $5 at walmart: http://www.hartz.com/Hartz_Products/Dog_Products/Toys/Chew_n_Clean/3270097528_hartz_chew_n_clean_tuff_bone.aspx
Neither one last forever but they last for a couple weeks at a minimum, the longest we’ve kept one was probably 4-5 months. We do have to take them away once she’s able to tear big chunks off and it gets down to choking size but it takes awhile. Bits do come off and pass through her when she’s chewing on them but they’re not super sharp and don’t seem to bother her at all. It keeps her away from my cosmetics and out of the garbabge so I’m ok with that since it’s not actively hurting her(and better for her than my expensive bronzer that’s a recurring favorite thing to steal!), she has thrown up the bits on occcassion when it get down to the end and she gets obsessed though but we take it away and replace it at that point.
Hoofs (hooves?) are awesome too and super cheap but they’re so hard and my dog is such a powerful chewer that I’m afraid she’s gonna break a tooth one day, she loves them so much that she won’t put it down even when her gums start bleeding! The smell on those is pretty powerful and rank when they’re being actively chewed on though!

I’m seeing good things about the goughnuts and Nyla bones! I’ve already added two Nyla bones to my Amazon cart! Thank you for all the suggestions bees 🙂

We bought our dog a toy made out of fire hose (stuffing free) from the brand Outward Hound. It’s holding up REALLY well. We got it at petsmart.

My dog loves Nyla bones. She is a big chewer and she carries her bone everywhere like her baby lol. The last one she had lasted 6 months. She’s about 50 pounds.

ajbates: YES! THESE!!!
Our boy is a HEAVY chewer… still has one 3 months later!
Also, the Nylabones are no joke. They’re great and inexpensive.
If you do tennis balls, I found some tough ones that are Meijer store brand… They’ve lasted a surprising length of time.

I really like the godog chew guard stuffies. They are not indestructible, but they are pretty tough. It takes my Mastiff a month to destroy one. Plus they are guaranteed. If your pet destroys the toy, they will send you another for free, no catch. They ask you some questions to find a stuffies best suited for your dog, and it arrives in a week.
I also like antlers!! They last awhile also! My dogs love kongs, they are pretty durable!!! The $1 Frisbee at petsmart are not bad also, for being cheap. I always keep extra tennis balls for the chuckit!! I buy actual tennisballs, not the doggie ones, they can chew those in a minute.

applecheeks: My parents dog passed away about seven years ago, but she used to chew through everything. She never had a new toy longer than ten minutes before she managed to pull it apart. One day my dad came home with a ball made out of a tire (it actually looked like a teeny tiny tire–round like a ball, but had a hallow center). She chewed and chewed and chewed on that thing (and while there were teeth marks in it) she was never able to tear it apart. She had it for about three years, I think.

douglastobee1011: How old is your spot? Mine’s only 6 months and LOVES to destroy toys.
I agree with the holee-roller– unless your dog is like my puppy who got his face in the hole and chewed a giant chunk out of it. JW, the company that makes them, makes a football shaped one with smaller holes that he carries around trying to kill but fails miserably.
Waldo’s favourite right now is the Kong line of fire hose ballistic toys. He’s torn a little bit off of the corner, but it’s one of two toys that he hasn’t demolished, and he’s had it for a couple of months.

ScratchNSniff: Pong is going to be 2 years old in July. He’s still just as playful as he was the day we brought him home! Hahaha! He loves to destroy toys and dig holes. 😉 Finding something he can’t ruin is always a feat!
