Dog Toys for Aggressive Chewers

Are You Looking for a Great Dog Toy for Your Aggressive Chewer?

One that will make both you and your furry friend happy?

Keep your Dog Happy

Keep your dog from getting bored…

Listed below are the ones that I have found that my dogs love and also are quite durable…which makes us all happy!

I’m sick and tired of having to buy a new toy and then get it home and it ends up in pieces the first day!

What about you? Does your dog destroy its brand new toys the first day?

We have four dogs in our family…why? I don’t know…just ’cause we love ’em!

Two of them are very heavy chewers. One is an Old English Bulldog and the other, his baby, is part Old English Bulldog and part Husky/yellow lab mix.

I have quit buying stuffed plush toys altogether…they end up getting a hold of them and they are ancient history!

Plus, I don’t like cleaning up stuffing everywhere or the thought that they may end up swallowing it either. Although these can be great for “normal” dogs that don’t chew as much as the two I mentioned.

When I only owned a small dog for awhile, a stuffed plush squeaky toy was her favorite toy, which she had for 15 years! So, it really depends on the dog. 

Anyways, to start off with here’s

Five Toys I Recommend.

These will keep your best furry friend happy and busy…hmmm, busy chewing on these instead of your shoes!

Cons:

  • Not many reviews for this product yet
  • Price – a bit high *
  • One of the split antlers didn’t have any marrow * (other one did)

(*according to verified customer reviews at Amazon)

Antler chews are highly recommended by many dog owners as being durable and long lasting. The chews here are made from elk antlers and split to provide dogs easier access to the nutrient-rich marrow inside of the antlers. I’ve yet to try these with our dogs, but I keep hearing a lot about antler chews…some dog owners love ’em, but some don’t…

Since this is something I’d like to try with our dogs, I thought I’d add these antler chew to the list. I definitely recommend giving these a try with your dog…but, of course, as with any new product be sure to supervise your dog with it.

Please do make sure you check the product out yourself first…see if it appears to be the correct size for your dog first. Any chew toy, antler, or bone that is too small can be a choking hazard…so, make sure it’s not so small the dog can fit the whole thing in it’s mouth.

Antler chews are longer lasting than other dog bones and also they provide essential vitamins and minerals for your dog. They are also a renewable source from shed deer and elk antlers. So, if you are looking for something for your dog with ALL NATURAL ingredients, try these Great Dog Split Jumbos–2, 5″ Jumbo Split Antler Chews (Sourced & Made in USA) **since you can’t get any more natural than that!

This Hartz Ruff Rewards dog toy is another great way to keep your dog busy! This is a great toy for large dogs that love to chew and play. Another good thing about it is the fact that it will keep your dog’s teeth clean and healthy while they are busy gnawing at it.

They will love chasing it around…it bounces! So, try not to get too carried away while throwing it! You can also fill this one with dog treats, peanut butter, or whatever you desire…well, whatever your dog desires would work the best!

I’d definitely recommend giving the Hartz Ruff Rewards Dog Toy a try especially if you need a toy that will keep your dog entertained for a length of time.


The Nylabone Dura Chew Value Pack, (Regular)

Nylabone Dura Chew Regular size Smaller Dogs up to 25 lbs

Click image to buy at Amazon**

Product: Nylabone Dura Chew Pooch Pacifier Chew Bone Value Pack
Price: $8.99 $5.99
Rating: 4.2 out of 5 stars
Size: Regular/small (for dogs up to 25 lbs.) (dimensions: 4.5 x 0.8 x 1.2 inches ; 5.6 ounces)

The Nylabone Dura Chew Regular size is the perfect way to keep a smaller dog happy. These are made of nylon and seem quite durable as long as you order the proper size!

Pros:

  • Helps clean teeth
  • Made of durable Nylon especially for strong chewers
  • Made in USA
  • Satisfies dog’s urge to chew & keeps it busy
  • Helps dog’s breath smell better *
  • Easy to wash *
  • Lasts a long time*
  • Cost – Cheap

Cons:

  • Some dogs weren’t interested in chewing these*
  • Too big for their small dog *
  • Too small for their dog *
  • One dog owner’s review stated that these may be the cause of her dog breaking its tooth*
  • Non-edible – these are NOT meant to be digested

*(According to verified customer reviews at Amazon)

Yes, size does matter!

If you’re not sure how much your dog weighs or if it is a very aggressive chewer, I would move a size up. That way it won’t be able to chew or break off pieces of it.

The ones pictured here are for small dogs weighing 25 pounds or less, so if your dog weighs a bit more than 25 pounds, I would recommend a bigger size such as the medium, which is for dogs 35 pounds or less.

So, if you own a dog such as a pit bull terrier or something similar size, I’d recommend you check its weight…I’m pretty sure these dogs at adult age weigh more than 25 pounds.

These long lasting bones are made in the USA and used by many dog owners to keep their dog busy in a good way…chewing these bones instead of your shoes!

I’d definitely recommend giving the Nylabone Dura Chews a try with your dog, but again, make sure to order the correct size for your dog’s weight first.

Your dog is more than 25 pounds or is really tough on chew toys? No problem…there’s more sizes of Nylabone available!

  • Not durable enough for some dogs*
  • Too large or heavy for some dogs (I noticed owners of dogs around 25 pounds stating this in their reviews)*

*(According to verified customer reviews at Amazon)

Yes, it’s another toy that you can fill up with your dog’s favorite treats…I guess I seem to like stuff like that for my dogs since it keeps ’em busy! After checking these out and seeing what others say about these toys, it looks like a lot of other people recommend these too.

As an idea to help one of the common problems about this toy, which is the opening being too large, I found a couple things you might want to try:

  • Use larger treats or half a dental bone inside
  • Fill it with kibble and then top it with cream cheese, peanut butter, or melted cheese to seal in the food so it takes longer for your dog to get to the treats inside
  • Fill it with either treats or kibble mixed with peanut butter and freeze it before giving to dog

These toys are dishwasher safe and also are free from harmful things like latex, rubber, and phalate. The Tux dog toy also bounces and floats, so your dog can have a lot of fun with it on land and in the water….that’s if your dog likes to swim of course!

I’d definitely recommend these and think this is definitely worth a try…after all, 778 customer reviews & the majority of them positive, is nothing to sneeze at. Plus, it’s 100% guaranteed by the manufacturer…

Check out the West Paw Design Guaranteed Tough Tux Dog Toy for yourself and see if it’s something your dog might enjoy!

*(According to verified customer reviews at Amazon)

I haven’t tried this one yet…I mean my dogs haven’t tried it yet! But, it has a lot of really great reviews from other people, so that is why I thought I’d include it here.

Actually, I think I’m going to buy a couple of these for our dogs next time I need to buy new chew toys. No way to know for myself unless I try it out on our dogs…and seeing it has 564 reviews, mainly positive, this looks like a great one to try out.

This Souper/X-large Nylabone is supposed to be extra tough for “the most powerful chewers” according to its description. The Gallileo Bone is made for dogs that weigh more than 50 pounds so if your dog is less than 50 lbs. I’d recommend checking the size chart available at Amazon in the product description.

Hey, if you try it with your dog before I try it with mine, let me know how it goes with yours… I’d be very interested in hearing what people have to say about this one since it is very highly recommended. Check it out for yourself here…Nylabone Galileo Bone Dog Chew Toy, Souper


These are all toys I recommend for your dog, but

Remember, if you decide to order a new toy for your dog, make sure to get the right size for your dog...some of these toys do come in different sizes!

Oh, before I forget! I know I always love to save money when I can, so I thought you might too….

    I love the West Paw brand. I got my 90# Weimaraner, their large chew ball and it has lasted us 3 weeks. Most toys I’ve bought him are destroyed in under 5 minutes.

    • Hi Alison,
      It’s great to hear from you! I’m delighted to hear the West Paw brand is working out for your 90-pound Weimaraner…now, that is one big dog! Definitely need some tough toys to be able to withstand the chewing a bigger dog can and will most certainly do.

      Thank you for stopping by and letting me know what you think…I truly appreciate it! It will help our fellow dog owners so much to know what kind of toys are worth buying or not. Hope to hear from you again sometime soon and best wishes to you and your furry friend! ~Sherry
