And I'm totally going to make a fleece toy today. I have some baby blankets my kids have outgrown that are fleece I can cut up to use. Thanks.

Nylabones! The only thing that Casey loves and will chew as long as i let him have it! He's had it for quite a few months now and the shape is the same, just one end is a little knobbly where he's chewed it. Definitely indestructible!

Please rethink any rope toys. A friend's berner was almost lost since he ingested some of his... you couldn't even tell from looking at the toy.... but it wrapped around his intestine and required emergency surgery. It was touch and go for over a week.

Goughnuts.com are tough, tough, tough and come as rings, sticks, and balls.

I second this. This happened to my daughters cat and several clients dogs.

Wow Seriously? Scary. Gonna pull the rope toy now. This is the first I've heard of this. I'm gonna bring it up to my vet since he's pretty good at giving info on stuff like that... Definitely getting rid of rope toys and not buying anymore.. I'm also going to trash the MIL's. Thanks. The last thing we need is surgery.

Charlie is a huge chewer too. Not many toys last longer then a day here. I found indestructible toys made by west paws to be the only toy to survive. I bought them in March and they are still alive!! I have bought every toy twice (i have two dogs) and they are fantastic! I'd recommend giving them a try!

Abby, our 8 month old Golden loves the bully sticks but we don't get braided ones as she goes through a braided one ALOT quicker than a regular. She loves to chew on something to keep herself occupied when we are unable to play with her. The unfortunate with the bully sticks, is that she does go through them rather quickly & they are a bit more expensive. I have friends with Golden's that have used knuckle bones which we are just now trying & rawhide curls. Each she seems to either choke on or not chew up enough & she throws some of it back up along with her food. She seems to be doing the same with the adult food we are attempting to switch her to as I think she just swallows instead of chewing it up like she should. Any ideas on this would be awesome.

Diesel was like this with bully sticks and I got sick of paying for them at $4 each when he would destroy one in an hour or two! So, I went to Gander Mtn. And purchased an antler.... He loves it just as much as the bully sticks and has had it for 3 days and it looks hardly touched! I know you can get them online as well (Michigan Antlers?). The $15 cost that seems like it may last him a while is way better than $15-20 a week that he would go through!
