Dogs can be cute, smart and gentle. But even the cutest dog can become a destructive monster when playing time comes. If your dog is a destructive chewer, you need some durable toys to make the game world worth it.
Fortunately, there are many durable toys on the market. They come in different shapes and sizes, and some of them are actually flavored as meat for extra fun fun.
But it can be difficult to find a good durable toy for your dog. Some toys claim they are durable, but they are not really stronger than a bowl of Jello-okay, a little strong than that … maybe. And your dog can be very picky about the shape or structure of some toys.
Happy to you (and your dog), we have taken the time to find a variety of good and durable chew toys for the most destructive dogs.
Nylabone Dura Chew ($ 7)
Nylabone Dura Chew is an affordable meat-based fabric toy made from a durable nylon material. It is a textured ring that can take a blow from even the largest, 60+ pound dogs. In addition, it can be thrown like a frisbee.
Most dog chew toys are shaped like legs or sticks, and they can be difficult for dogs to squeeze for a good chewing session. But since Nylabone is shaped like a ring, your dog can hold it down with a paw, like a giant mannequin. This is a good toy for power chewers, and it doesn't cost much, so you can always buy a new one once it starts to gnarly.

ONEISALL chew toys are also bacon scent, so please give it a good chew while your dog is not watching (don't do this).
Benebone Flavored Chew Toy ($ 13)
Dogs love to chew on legs, but not all dog owners want to riddle in their house with nasty old bones. (Funny fact, most dogs "legs" are actually bleached raw skin from cows). In order to make your bone-loving dog happy, you have to tear a compromise.
Fortunately, Benebone-flavored tuggys are shaped and textured like a giant wishbone, but it is made of plastic.
