Toys for aggressive chewer

Hi everyone!

Brooks has just hit the 7 month mark, as well as the 65 mark. He is a very big bundle of craziness! It also seems that we have re-entered the chewing phase, luckily not on things other than toys. We seem to be going through stuffed toys like crazy because he is destroying them. He just chews and chews them until they are in pieces. Does anyone have a toy or toys that they can recommend for an aggressive chewer? We had (key word - had) some of the Tuffy toys, but even those were no match. My previous Golden loved to play with his toys, but never destroyed them like Brooks does so this is a different world for me.

Thanks!!

Seneca

The only surviving toys that Cody has are made by a Montana company called West Paw Design. He loves the one called Bumi.

Also have you thought of elk antlers? Cody spends endless time trying to chew them.

And she's getting this one for christmas:



Antlers are also really good. Squeeky toys are great as long as the plastic is fairly thick - Pets at Home sell cheap food ones (I bought her a Burger for 1) and its great except the squeek has gone. But, what do you expect for 1 ?!

In terms of toys, West Paw Design are my boys favorites, AND they survive. The Bumi is also our household favorite.

Jolly Pet toys are also great for outside play - the teaser ball, push-n-play, tug-n-toss, bounce-n-play, etc. I buy them in the largest sizes and the boys chase them all around.

No brand of stuffed toys survive my crew - they're not even CHEWERS, but something about the soft toys brings out their desire to RIP.

All rubber Kongs last - the classics, dental stick, jack, goodie bone, safe stix, etc.

Tayla is an agressive chewer also and has destroyed every toy from expensive "guaranteed" ones down to tug toys I make. Actually, the tugs seem to last her the longest, but I will say WestPaw toys are the best, unfortunately she doesn't care much about them. Right now her favorite toys are tennis balls which she pulls the covering off so we have switched to 1. the west paw designed ones and 2. the chuckit balls. She loves them the best. She usually has one in her mouth.

Thanks everyone. The Bumi looks promising. Tennis balls are also a favorite, but like Tayla, Brooks like to pull off the fuzz. We found one at Petco with a bottle-like ball in the center of a rubber cage that he has recently picked up again (we've had it for weeks and he ignored it).

We have the elk antlers, but he hasn't shown too much interest in those either. I got him a nice beef bone for Christmas, so maybe that will be different.

Max has a deer antler and an elk antler. He is far more interested in the deer than the elk. I've also heard that if you soak the antler overnight, it makes it tastier for them but I'm not sure about all that.

Beef pizzle (dried penis), baked butcher beef bone & antlers top our list.
We recently bought a Blue knobby moulded rubber bone, that is split down the sides & allows you to stuff treats (buscuits) in it. It seems to be a hit right now.

We have the first one (the red one). I should take a picture of the remains. Libs chewed thru it!

Libbie's antler is about the only thing she hasn't been able to chew apart. I recommend antlers!
