Tracy Myers - do you have any suggestions?

This is not strictly a toy but a toy/treat combo: the Everlasting Bento Ball was my best most recent success. My dog goes through normal chew treats WAY too fast, but this thing is lasting a seriously long time and he's still into it.

My chocolate lab demolishes all her toys. She has had the Kong Goodie Bone for over a year and it's still in one piece! It has treat compartments that we fill up to keep her busy when she's home alone. We've had good luck with Kong toys in general.

morgan tucker how big is your dog?

I've had two super chewers. The Orbee-Tuff Diamond Plate Orange Treat-Dispensing Dog Toyooks like a Kong and you put treats inside. It keeps them busy and is somewhat a puzzle, because they have to figure out how to shake the treat out. I've also purchased the Bark Box Super Chewer Toys and they are very durable. The Bully Make Box toys are strong but the Bark Box super chewer selections are more fun.

I have a pitbull and an Anatolian Shepherd. They are beyond HUGE. These are only things that aren’t rawhide that last.

We also have had good luck with the Kong toys. They have several different styles of toys to choose from.

We have subscribed to Bark Box and have been really happy with the durability and quality of the toys.

Our Labradoodle is only 35lbs but he chews like a giant dog. We've had decent luck with Tuffy brand toys, especially the ones that don't have "appendages" he can chew off. As an example we have a stuffed ring that he hasn't been able to get into. (Here's an amazon search for a bunch of them.)

Hi Morgan - I would pay attention to how your dog plays - are they all about chewing, ripping things apart, licking, throwing toys up in the air - all of the above - none of the above? Then, based on this try toys that you can recreate on a budget. For example - my dog loves throwing toys in the air and flapping them around - so now I buy her cotton rope from the hardware store, make some knots and she loves it. Every dog has a different interaction style that changes in time - so my suggestion would be to try out different things and see what they enjoy the most and then cycle them through a few versions without breaking the bank :)

Luisa Ruge oh he's a big fan of chewing and ripping things up. I've tried every version of kong toys (i work at a pet store so I always am trying different options) and none of them survive long at all. I found a few that work really well when he wants to play tug of war with them. But I have to remember to pick them up and put them away when we're done or else he will rip those to shreds too. he tears rope toys apart with no hesitation. The only things he's not able to just rip to shreds are his bones. But I want him to have lots of options. He gets plenty of exercise and I have been trying to give him a little more in hopes that it will tone down how rough he is with toys. I just feel bad because at this point there's only so many toys that survive more than a few weeks and I don't want him getting too bored. But I am constantly picking up bits and pieces of their remains lol

morgan tucker seems like a huge challenge for sure ... I can think of one more suggestion - have you ever tried Jolly Balls? They are intended for horses so I don't know about the size issue but they are pretty durable.

Luisa Ruge he's definitely been my most challenging dog! I've got two others that are so easy to buy for. And yes, jolly balls are so nice! he'll fling those around all day. His last one finally died after a few months. and he played with it to the very end.

My friend has two big pitbulls and was constantly running into this problem. He ended up building them some toys out of tires and the dogs love them!!! They last for a few months before needing to be replaced.

Chewy! It is a $20 a month subscription and you get I believe 3-5 toys and specialized snacks specific to what the dog enjoys. Also dont sleep on your local Costco and or Sams club. They have some really great toys there too.

Check out Planet Dog. That's where you'll find the Orbee balls and bones. I've found their products to be well-designed and durable.

I just wanted to chime in to let you know that I will be absolutely, positively, completely zero help to you! Our two mini doxies (who are super old, mind you) are still savages when tearing through toys. Yup, even the durable ones. Especially, the squeaky ones! They go nuts ripping and shredding and removing the squeaky part, then...well...nothing. They did their job. They just lay there all smug 'n satisfied while I gather up all the fuzz and squeakers...*sigh*

So, as I was saying, I'm no help...

My Pittie tears through toys faster than I can buy them, so I completely understand where you're coming from. I have found that she loves the kong frisbees and rope toys!

I love Bark Box, I canceled subscription though because my husband our dogs had too many toys. All the toys for super chewers were fun, and the dogs love them. I may sign back up.

I've had good luck with Top Paw products. My Australian Shepherd hasn't been able to destroy any of them completely, just on the ears or tails.
