7 Best Indestructible Dog Toys You Must Get Your Dog!

Dog Sitting in a Big Pile of Dog Toys

Does your dog chew its toys with a fury that can rival any shark attack?  Are those brand new toys torn to shreds within hours? If so, then you most likely have what is known as an “aggressive chewer.”  

These dogs can be any that quickly snap, crack, destroy and swallow objects, but the most likely candidates are Rottweilers, Pit Bulls and Mastiffs due to their strong jaw structures.

But don’t despair—or waste anymore money on dog toys that just don’t stand up to the powerful playtime of your furry companion!

Check out these 7 must-have indestructible dog toys that are sure to please both you and your pet.

1. Kongs Are King

Founded in the 1970s the Kong is one of the leading brands of indestructible dog toys.  The initial and perhaps the most recognizable of the Kong brand is the three-tiered, snowman-like, durable rubber toy (The Classic “Kong”). It comes in various sizes with a hole in the bottom, designed for stuffing crunchy treats inside or filling up with peanut butter.  In addition to their classic, this company also makes tough toys in the shape of a tire (it rebounds when compressed), bones, balls and flying disks (perfect for fetch!). Check out your neighborhood pet retailer or Pet Supplies Plus online for a wide selection of Kong toys. Your canine chew-inator will love these!

2. Fab Firehose Fetch

You may not consider firehoses “fab” but if you have a tough-chewer this is one toy you will want to add to your arsenal.  Made by the Outward Hound company, the Firehose Fetch is designed with real fire hose material, double-stitched ends and no exposed seams, which means your hound can have-at-it without worry. The long narrow design comes in different sizes and are perfect for an exuberant game of fetch or tug-o-war.

3. Fuzzy Yet Tough

Even a tough guy wants to snuggle up with something soft and fuzzy once-in-awhile (even if he does try to chew its ear off). goDog has made some super plushies that can take a beatin’. The secret to their durability? Chew Guard Technology, which incorporates double-stitched seams to keep the stuffins’ in. Plus, they come in a variety of bright colors, with squeakers and in an array of characters like dragons, amphibians, gators and more! Although, located in South Africa (a bit off the beaten path for most of us) YuppiePet has a wide variety of goDog toys and an awesome story. Check them out!

4. Gummies Can Be Tough, Too!

When we hear the word “gummi” we probably all conjure up the image (and perhaps even the texture and taste) of those sweet chewy candies.  But don’t let that idea fool you, the Megalast company has given gummies a whole new meaning and use. These Gummi-bears are designed to look like “the real thing,” come in different sizes and colors and are made with certified non-toxic materials.  Plus, they’re manufactured in the good-ole US of A and ideal for indoor or outdoor long-lasting fun.

5. Stick It to ‘Em

Dogs and sticks go together like peanut butter and jelly, that’s why the GoughNuts company has designed a safe and durable “stick” that is super-strong, but they didn’t stop there.  This company took the tough toy one step further by adding red polymer to the inside of each of their products.  Red means STOP!  If the red is at anytime showing through the toy it means it’s time to get a new one. However, GoughNuts guarantees their products with a lifetime warranty so all you have to do is ship it back to the company and they’ll replace it for free.

6. Tuffy to the Rescue

Tuffy toys are so strong they have been used with baby lions and tigers.  Now that’s durability. If they can stand up to this kind of jungle-play your dog should have these toys for years to come.  Each toy is designed with four layers of material and seven rows of stitching.  In addition, they float, are machine-washable and come in a variety of cute critter designs. We think the undersea series is to “chew” for!

7. PetSafe Is Pet Parent Approved

PetSafe prides themselves on trusted toys for dogs (and cats) but not all of them are for rowdy-chewers. However, the ones that are come in different styles like treat-holders, ones with varied textures and still others that are perfect for breaking in those new teeth (or cleaning up the adult ones!).  The use of replaceable gnawhide rings will keep your pup occupied while you’re at work or just for an exciting pastime toy.

Bonus: Tux’s for Dogs?

This company may not have officially made the list of top “toughie” toys, but I think they deserve an honorable mention for their durability and unique designs.  West Paw Designs has created the Tux Treat Toy that has a special compartment to hide treats inside. However, even after the nibbles are gone, this toy is still fun for water activities (it floats), bouncing and flinging.  Plus, it is dishwasher safe, recyclable, certified safe and made in the USA.  Check them out!

At-A-Glance Dog Toy Guide

Now that we’ve listed the top toys and brands for those aggressive chewers, here are a few things to keep in mind when shopping for toys in general.

  • Toys made of rubber or Chew-Guard materials are durable and fun for aggressive chewers.
  • Rope toys, dental chews and bone-hard toys are all made for low to medium-grade chewers.
  • Soft, smooth, squishy toys made from vinyl or latex are great for older dogs because they are gentle on the teeth and gums.  Smaller dogs or those that aren’t aggressive chewers will enjoy these as well.
  • Toys that are meant to launch like disks are great for retrievers or those that like to fetch.
  • Dogs that like to carry toys are recommended to have soft toys or those made of fleece.
  • Dogs that need to be kept busy or enjoy being rewarded do well with interactive treat toys.

These toughies tame the chewer in your life so why not purchase one (or all) of these 7 indestructible dog toys?  They’re not only durable and safe with their double and multiple stitching, red polymer middles and extra-strength fire hose material, but the tail-wagging enjoyment brought to your dog is sure to last.
