There’s nothing sadder than buying an expensive toy for you dog only to find it destroyed on the floor three days later. After all, the toy makers do know that they are making these toys for dogs, with very sharp teeth, right? Here’s our best advice for finding the most indestructible dog toys!
Toys My Dog Can’t Destroy
What to look for in a toy:
When shopping for the most durable dog toys, look for one that is made of rubber. Or, if your dog would prefer something softer to chew on, consider a heavy-duty rope pull toy. It’s best to avoid plush toys or stuffed animals, and the tough rope toys usually make a good substitute.
Plus this will save your children’s favorite stuffed animals and keep your dog safe from choking hazards like buttons or plastic eyes.
Size is another important consideration. The bigger the dog, the bigger the toy should be. If the toy is too small, your big dog will be able to get a better grip on it and probably chew chunks off or tear it up quickly.
