longer lasting stuffed toys?

Anyone know of any brand or particular stuffed animal toy made for dogs that will last extensive chewing? My puppy gave this one penguin (we call it his duckie because the squeaker quacks) a hole in the back in the first week, and today (2.5 weeks later) gave the toy a lobotomy :P

I don't think I can even perform brain surgery this time because he pulled out the stuffing and damaged the fabric enough

2 1/2 weeks is pretty good. My two don't usually let them "live" much past a day!!

We had to quit giving Tabitha any type of fabric toys. She pulled squeekers out and slowly ripped them to pieces. She loves to chew so we got Nylabones and a Hurley.They hold up and she loves them.

I agree 2 1/2 weeks is good. Poor duckie I think could be salvaged but he may have to lose his head to find enough good material!

Look up Tuffies. They are the strongest-built squeaker toys I've encountered. They lasted our two full grown goldens about three months of really hard play.

We go through stuffed toys rather quickly. Some last a day, others a week. Zazoo's main goal seems to be to get the squeaker out of the toy, once that's accomplished he slowly shreds the remainder of the toy. I've tried the harder chewy toys and he doesn't seem to like the feel of them in his mouth. He prefers the stuffed variety. He's managed to destroy some of the kids stuffed animals as well!!!

Tuffies are stuffed. They're a very strong canvas that is stitched multiple times.

new toy

This is not a stuffed toy but it is something new I found at Target on sale this week. It is made out of a soft plastic they really like, It says it has appealing chewy feel, great for power chewers, for dogs of all ages, it also floats in the water! It is called an orka jack with rope.

Tuffies

Reily absolutely loved the Tuffie Octopus. It was rated a 7 out of 10 for toughness. It lasted an hour and a half!! So far the Kong is the only toy that survives.

Stuffies have a life expectancy of about 5 to 10 minutes in my house. It is awful. I can't buy them anymore..
