The Best Indestructible Dog Toys…
Whether you’ve got a Great Dane or a Chihuahua, any dog owner who wants to keep their shoes and slippers intact knows the importance of giving their pets something to chew on. However, with so many dog toys lasting only a matter of weeks, days or even minutes before they’re utterly destroyed, making sure your four-legged friends have something that’s long lasting to gnaw on is important if you don’t want repeated trips to the pet shop.
Knotted rope dog toy
Firstly there’s the classic Knotted Rope Dog Toy. Available in a huge range of sizes from specialist suppliers such as Pets at Home, if you play with your dog and this toy it will quickly become a firm favorite. Rope toys are also very reasonably priced, so if you have several dogs there’s no reason you can’t have one for each of them.
Kong Dog Chew Treat Toy
Coming in three sizes (classic, large and extreme), the Kong Dog Chew Treat Toy is perfect for dogs of practically any size. It has even been used in professional settings to encourage dogs to chew in a non-destructive way, thanks to the ability to place a dog treat inside the toy. While it is recommended that you supervise your dog while they play with this, you can feel safe knowing the ultra-durable rubber is made from non-toxic materials.
The Orka Jack is another toy that can occasionally be stuffed with treats for extra fun with your dog at playtime. Designed with the most powerful of chewers in mind, the Orka Jack has a chaotic bounce pattern that will happily have dogs unsure of what way to turn when you use it as a fetch toy.
Nylabone Dura Chew Double Bend Souper
Another great option is the Nylabone Dura Chew Double Bend Souper. This product is designed to stimulate dogs that love to bite with different textures, colors and places to chew. This is a particularly good choice if your dog has been chewing household items, as its distinctive bacon will soon turn heads. One final benefit of the Nylabone is that as it is chewed, bristles form that can aid teeth cleaning and massage the dog’s gums.
What’s wrong with bones?
It’s vital that your dog has an appropriate chew toy because many bones can actually be bad for them. Big beef leg bones can be so hard that they fracture dogs’ teeth for example, while poultry bones can easily break into long, sharp pieces that can causes stomach upsets. It’s much safer, and fun for you, to pick a suitable dog toy based on their size and chewing habits. For me information on this issue click here.
