The above I LOVE! My dog has never tried to chew through an extreme kong, but he has certainly done his fair share of damage on other toys. He can chew a hard nylabone to the core in less than a day.

I find that some of the kong toys are just garbage and easily destroyed. Also, any of those “hide the treat” toys are destroyed by our shephard cross in less than a day. The lab roots through to get the treat and the shephard EATS through to get them. *facepalm*

My dog (a sheltie) loves kong toys and those giant no stuffing squeaker toys with 16 squeakers in them at petsmart.  They’re super annoying, but if they keep him entertained I’ll deal with listening to a bunch of squeaking.

We let him tear ’em up but we try to buy him new toys pretty regularly.  He likes to gut the stuffed animals and then drag the empty carcass around the living room.  My personal favorite was a hedgehog from Walmart that grunted; we called it his Grun-Grun.  When FI threw it away Brutus found it in the trash, took it out and started playing with it.  Hopefully Walmart will have more of those when Christmas gets closer.

Only 1 of my dogs likes toys very much, and she doesn’t like hard toys like Kongs (unless there’s food inside).

The stuffed toy she destroys the slowest are these dragon toys. She’ll still rip the squeaker out within a matter of minutes, and chew off the spikes and ears, and de-stuff what little stuffing they put in to them, but the toy stays mostly intact. (We have 4 of these now! All the colors below, plus a Christmas dragon with a santa hat.)

@abbyful:  Those are super cute!!

My reply would be long long long. My dog loves any and ALL toys, more than food- SERIOUSLY!

@MrsDrRose612:  We bought one of the smaller ones for him first because he LOOOOVES squeaky toys.  I think he part of the reason he likes them so much is because my SO gets so annoyed by them.  Ha ha.  That is too funny about the water bottle toy – Ned will chew on those, too, and you’re right – that sound is terrible!

Our foster dog, Vanna White, loves stuffless toys. We’ve got a bunny that she carries around the house all day. She also loves this green and white soft, felt rope we bought at Target for $1. She doesn’t like anything hard or chewy, so no kongs or balls for us right now.

My dog’s favourite toy is a small soccer ball.

We spent at least $60 in Kong-related toys and $110 in other, misc. toys and all he wants to do is play with my brother’s old soccer ball. :/

That is why you don’t buy too many toys before you get the pup!

@MrsDrRose612:  Ah that’s great!  I’ll look into one of those.  He’s not a big chewer (unless there’s paper products around) so he hasn’t popped a ball yet, but I’m sure he can and maybe will when he gets older.

I made one by knotting some old socks and outgrown undershirts together to make a rope. He loves it and plays with it more than any of his other storebought toys. He just likes chewing it, carrying it around or giving it to me to tug on. I love it because it didn’t cost me anything and doesn’t make a lot of noise for the folks that live below us.
