I can not keep a chew toy for more than a day, my puppy eats it. Any good ones that really last?

If my dog's toys start disappearing then he eats our things. If he has toys he leaves our stuff alone. The problem is I can not find a durable toy that will last more than a day or two, and its breaking the bank. Any suggestions?

  • I've heard dog bones are the best thing for chewing.

  • I hear Kongs are really good. Also, you can take a femur bone from a pet store and fill it with peanut butter. It will keep them busy for a good while. :0)

  • My sons dog, German Shepard/Akita mix, ate Kong's like they were dog treats!
    I agree with goofygal, femur bones from the meat market last a very long time, lol

  • Kongs or anything that has a hard plastic. My dog loves Jolly Balls. There is a handle that can easily be chewed but the rest of it is pretty durable. I have had one Jolly ball for 6 years and it wasn't until my newest dog that the toy has begun to look a bit ratty. I would stay away for toys that look like stuffed animals or have squeakers in them. Those toys tend to be easily destroyed. I also give my dogs soup marrow bones. They can last for months.

  • Longs, cow bones, knuckles etc

  • My lab loved the Kongs filled w/ peanut butter. Never destroyed it. Ice cubes work great for teething puppies too.

  • Nylabones or Kong.
    They're the only things that last around here. No squeakers, nothing fabric.
