Q: I need a very durable chew toy for a chocolate lab

July 14, 2009 | By Amy K. | 15 answers | Expired: 1875 days ago

My Grandpa has a very active 4 year old lab who loves to play with plastic pop bottles but I'm looking for a safer toy for him to play with that he will not be able to chew up so quickly or choke on. We have tried the hard plastic kid balls but he breaks them open within a short period of time and the majority of dog toys that I see will not last even five minutes.

Our Black lab puppy used to love chewing on everything he could get to from toys and shoes to cellphones and eye-glasses. Normal rawhide bones did not last long at all before he started to look for the next 'toy'. The only things that have survived his teeth were the Kong and Nylabone we got him. These were the heavy duty versions. We fill the Kong with some sort of treat and let him go at it. These two toys have saved countless other objects from being devoured.

I give my dog empty Gatorade bottles to play with. The plastic is strong and doesn't shard that easily. He'll chew on it and crush it for about 2 hours. You have to watch though because the lip of the bottle (where the cap screws on) can crack and cut his mouth. When that happens, take it away. You can get a case of Gatorade at Walmart for about $5.

I think Kongs are the best toys. You can put treats inside which keeps them amused. They also make them for tough chewers also.
