5 Indestructible Dog Toys That’ll Challenge Even the Biggest Super-Chewer

Chewing stuff seems to be dogs’ favorite pastime (after running around and eating, of course). Basically, they do it a lot—and for good reason. Like human babies, puppies need to chew on things while they are teething to alleviate gum pain and bolster incoming teeth. Aging dogs also benefit from regularly chomping down because it strengthens their jaws. At a loss for chew toys that can withstand all that biting? Fear not, and keep reading for some of the strongest toys available.

2. Nylabone Power Chew Dura Chew Dog Toy

Available in delicious flavors like bacon, beef and peanut butter, this bone-shaped chew toy satisfies both the instinct to chomp down and the drive to rip apart some meat (or peanut butter, apparently). It falls on the “Extreme” end of Nylabone’s chewing style scale, which means a lot of teeth can sink into this thing over time.

3. Hyper Pet Crazy Crew Dog Toy: Punky Ballster

This toy looks almost as intimidating as it is durable. It’s the strongest option in Hyper Pet’s Crazy Crew toy line (including characters like Haniball and Deploraball). Due to its irregular shape, the ball bounces in wild directions, keeping your dog on her toes. You can also stuff treats inside, giving her some extra mental stimulation. Best of all?

In case you haven’t gotten the memo, real bones are a big no-no for dogs. They can splinter and cause damage to the mouth and gums, not to mention the throat if your dog accidentally swallows a shard. Instead, toss one of these faux deer antlers her way. Splintering is not a concern with this toy and your dog will actually scrub plaque off her teeth during chew time.

5. Godog Dinos T-rex Just For Me With Chew Guard Technology Durable Plush Squeaker Dog Toy

Plush toys typically aren’t great for heavy, avid chewers. Canines tend to, um, destroy plush toys completely in a matter of minutes. However, this dinosaur is reinforced with Chew Guard Technology (a specialized lining that makes ripping through to the center of the toy much more difficult). If your dog loves to chew but prefers soft toys or has dental pain, this is a great option.
