My Dog Destroys his Toys: Dog Toys for Heavy Chewers

Most dog owners opine they own the cutest, cuddliest, or smartest dog compared to all the other doggos in the world. We call it owner bias, lol.

They’re so easy to care for, our canine pals. Just give them a soft bed, a water bowl, some dry (or wet) kibble, and scatter a few toys on the floor and they’re set (or so we think).

Playfulness meter varies from dog to dog. Some are just content making their toys squeak, others would chew up their toy, scattering white stuffing everywhere until they find that squeaker and kill it. What do you do if you got the second type of psycho toy-killing dog? What if you open the door to utter chaos every time you arrive home from work?

If you own a dog that’s a heavy chewer, it’s time to level up your toy-buying skills. No cheap dollar-store brand squeakies for you and your pet! Get dog toys that are indestructible or designed to withstand your dog’s heavy chewing power.

We’ve scoured toy stores across this plain to come up with the list below.

1. Diamond Plate Orbee Ball 

When the product’s name has the word “diamond” in it, you would know that this toy is indestructible. Well, it really is not indestructible, but you would be sure that Diamond Plate Orbee Ball will be one of the toughest toys you can ever give to your pet furball. We all know that dogs can be a bit rough when playing with toys, but this ball will stand the test of time and will probably withstand your dog’s tough jaws more than any other ball available in the market.

2. Skinny Peltz

Skinny Pelts are squeakers that come in many different animal designs that your dog will surely love playing with. At first glance, it does not look like a particularly tough or indestructible toy, but these squeakers come with no stuffing, which means that these are not hollow and are going to be a lot tougher than a lot of other squeakers on the market. While you can be sure that these toys will eventually give out, the good thing is that they are so tough that not all dogs will probably be able to tear them open. And if your dog does tear this toy open, there are no dangerous stuffing that your dog can accidentally ingest.

3. Nylabone Dura Chew Wishbone

Dogs love chewing on wishbones from chicken. But the problem with wishbones is that they can be quite easy to break apart. And when your dog breaks the wishbone, there is a danger that the splinters might injure its mouth or even get stuck somewhere in between its teeth or even in its throat. That can cause major problems in the long run.

But with Nylabone Dura Chew Wishbone, you can be sure that your dog will be able to chew on a wishbone-like toy that feels like a true wishbone but is actually made of durable materials that will not break so easily. On top of that, it comes with bristles that can clean your dog’s teeth while it is chewing on this toy.

4. Zogoflex Hurley

Zogoflex Hurley is a toy that is great for a dog that likes swimming and chewing. The reason why this is a good toy for swimmers is that it floats. So, if you have a dog that likes to spend time in the water and likes to play with toys while swimming, this toy is perfect for it. On top of that, this floating toy is guaranteed to be completely indestructible. And if your dog manages to destroy this toy, the manufacturer will replace it completely for free. That means that the manufacturer really does believe that this toy was designed to be as tough as any product can be.

5. Kong Flyer

Dogs love playing with flying discs or frisbees. The problem is that most frisbees tend to be quite cheaply made because of how they are made from poorly-manufactured plastic that won’t be able to last for a long time. But Kong Flyer is a doggie frisbee that was made to be so durable and so long-lasting that not even the strongest of dogs can easily destroy it. You will be confident enough throwing this frisbee anywhere, knowing that it won’t get destroyed so easily. And while frisbees are not the most durable toys, you can be sure that Kong Flyer is arguably the most durable frisbee available on the market.

6. Jolly Pet Romp-n-Roll Rope and Dog Toy

The Jolly Pet Romp-n-Roll is a large ball that measures about 8 inches in diameter. That means that it is a toy that is great for larger dogs that are quite strong. And of course, the bigger the dog, the more likely the dog is a heavy and tough chewer. In that regard, this toy is something that your large dog will enjoy because it won’t easily get punctured due to its tough exterior. Moreover, because this toy floats, it is great for dogs that love playing in the water.

7. Kong Extreme Dog Toy

With the word “extreme” in its name, you can be sure that Kong Extreme Dog Toy was made to be extremely durable and even close to indestructible. Despite having a shape that does not really look too appealing, this is actually a ball that does its job really well in the sense that it simply will last longer than most other balls on the market. That means that you can be confident with this toy, knowing that it will be able to withstand the extreme chewing of your furry canine pet.

8. Goughnuts Original Dog Chew Ring

If you are looking for a dog that is simply tough and indestructible, Goughnuts Original Dog Chew Ring is arguably the toughest out there. This is a toy that not even the largest and strongest chewers will not be able to destroy. The manufacturer even guarantees its toughness as this toy is has a lifetime guarantee. That means that, if your dog ever does destroy this toy, the manufacturer will replace it or even return your money.

9. Titan Busy Bounce Dog Toy

Titan Busy Bounce Dog Toy is as tough as any dog toy can be. It was designed with your large dog in mind and is extremely durable to the point that not even the toughest and largest of dogs would be able to destroy this bouncy toy. The rubber material is also made of FDA approved rubber so that, in the event that your dog destroys it and accidentally ingests the material, you can be sure that it won’t cause any type of problems in your dog’s stomach.

10. Petstages Dogwood Stick

Dogs love chewing on sticks. Any stick you can find outdoors usually makes a good toy for your dog. You can throw the stick for it to play fetch with, and you can even leave your dog alone playing with the stick itself. But the problem is that sticks are not the most durable toys for your dogs. But Pestages Dogwood Stick makes up for that by giving your dog a toy stick that is certainly a lot more durable than the ones you see outside. And the best part is that it actually feels and tastes like a real stick so that your dog won’t be able to tell the difference between it and a true wooden stick.
