Mission Completed: Tough Toys For Crazy Chompers

Last week I asked all you savvy shoppers and Internet researchers to come PetMarking with me on a tough toy challenge to help find a way to make Brando happy on his birthday morning . . . and Phasekitty happy by not having the toy completely destroyed by afternoon. I especially love this Hurley ($8.95) bookmarked by ILovePugs – it's a bone, a stick, and a ball all in one!

Check out the rest of your great finds below.

I just picked up a Hurley this weekend that has a hole in the center for treats...a true test for Mosby since he has destroyed anything else of a similar design. 3 days later and he has not come anywhere close to breaking it! And he loves chewing on it. So far so good :)

When Scout was a pup, she chewed up every toy we gave her. I got her a regular Kong and she demolished it. I took it back to the store and they told me I needed a black Kong for her. They exchanged the destroyed one for the black one for free and she wasn't able to ruin the black one.

I have to say that it is possible for a dog to destroy the hurley. Our Amstaff, Osiris, managed to, but it did take him longer than any other toy he has ever had. ps. it squeaked when he chewed it!

Aphrosette- I would love to have a toy last a month! I dropped nearly $50 on two of those Tuffies thinking it was a worthy investment and the Bone lasted roughly half a day, and the Starfish was just about 20 minutes. At least he's got some expensive carcasses to drag around the house...

my dogs need these, my brother bought them a toy a couple weeks ago and they didn't even last a full day...i haven't seen it since actually.

I wouldn't recommend the Bad Cuz for a super chewer. The body portion is pretty darn tough (up there with regular Kongs, I would say), but the horns and feet are really easy to break off. Our lab turned hers into a red ball in less than hour.

I got the hilarious-looking orange cat yanker toy and in one day the ears had been gnawed off and by day three the head had all the fluff out... Oh well...

I have to say I've got two terrible chompers and we have tried most of the brands listed here and have had no luck. The toys last for at most a month and then they are destroyed (keep in mind I do have two boys going at them instead of just one) The only toy I have that wasn't destroyed in about a month is a firehouse dog toy and even the ends of that are pretty chomped on

Thanks guys! Brando has a Hurley and it's great (mainly because it's still intact), but he doesn't play with it very often. I'm going to try out the Yankers and the Bad Cuz because they look pretty durable. Thanks for all your help!
