It can be pretty discouraging seeing a brand new toy ripped to shreds soon after you have purchased them. That why we decided to comb the internet and find some of the most durable toys that your dog can’t destroy.
●How to select the strongest toys
Pick the Material:
Some of the most durable dog toys are made of solid, hard rubber and these are what we typically would recommend. Some dogs prefer a softer chew than rubber.
They may even snub their nose at rubber chew toy, opting for a stuffed toy instead. Soft dog toys are not usually thought of as being indestructible. However, there are a few you can purchase that are far more difficult to destroy.
Take note of the size:
When looking for a dog toy that will survive longer than 60 seconds it’s important to not purchase a toy too small for your dog. Doing so will give your dog more bite leverage and be able to rip through it easier. If you have a large dog, take a look for durable dog toys specifically made for large dogs
Kong Toys: These are super durable and come in many different sizes. Many have additions like rope pulls or a hollow center to hide treats. A black rubber toy is considered the toughest. These by far are the most popular toys on the market for dog owners. Kong’s Red Rubber Flyer and Squeaky Tennis Ball are also good choices.
Jolly Pets: This toy is a rubber ball type toy, but with a handle. It makes it easy to throw and great for tug of war. Plus, the handle makes it bounce around crazily, encouraging them to chase it. They even have a Heavy Duty version for an aggressive chewer.
Goughnuts: Are solid rubber rings and are touted as being “guaranteed indestructible.”
West Paw Design Jive Zogoflex Durable Ball Dog Chew Toy is a great tennis-like ball with an unpredictable bounce. They give it a 5 out of 5 on their durability scale.
Mammoth TireBiter Rubber Tire Chew Toys: This toy comes in tire shape, a floating retriever stick and a classic dog bone shape. And they are made with real rubber making them pretty durable.
Tuffy Toys: These claim to be the toughest plush toys on the market. They have multiple rows of stitching and some also have a vinyl strip on the outside to protect the stitching. Even so, Tuffy reminds pet owners that these are meant to be interactive toys and you shouldn’t give this toy to your dog on his own.
Go Dog: These soft toys have double stitched seams and a “Chew Guard Technology.” They also offer a plush toy for smaller dogs that are vigorous chewers. And they guarantee that their toys are totally chewed proof.
