Dogs love their toys and we love to spoil them! It is always so fun running into a store to grab your pup a new toy. But sometimes it can be pretty frustrating to have your dog chew up that toy in less than a week. Some dogs just love to chew. Whether you’re trying to get your dog to stop destructively chewing shoes, couches, and anything in sight or you’re just trying to help your dog keep a toy intact for more than a few days, we’ve got a solution. Durable, tough toys are what is needed for a dog that’s a tough chewer. Some intense chewing dogs will tear right through a toy that is labeled “indestructible.” Here are some toys we know can withstand your furry friend’s chewing and will keep them entertained for hours!
There are obviously a wide variety of KONG toys on the market. Maybe you’ve tried a few, but your dog just destroys them. Luckily, there is a KONG toy that is ready to stand up to your pup.

This doughnut shaped, ring toy is made out of a natural rubber than uses engineered carbon reinforcement to make it even more durable. What is special about the GoughNut is that it has a two layer design, the outer ring is whatever color of the toy and the inner layer is red.

We know this one will stand up to your tough chewer. They range anywhere from $16 to $25.
If you’re looking for something that you and your dog can do together that will also stand up to their chewing, the Nuts for Knots Heavy Duty Rope toy is the perfect choice.
