Q: Need Stronger Toys!!

Need Stronger Toys!!

We have a German shorthaired pointer and he DESTROYS all toys. We got him a kong and that died so we bought the black "super kong" and he popped the top off (the smallest ball on top) so we bought the next bigger size and he pulled the big hole apart. We don't know what to get him, but if he don't have chew toys he gets more and more destructive. Please let me know what SUPER tough toys your large breeds like/need!!

I have found one toy to be completely undestructable with my PitBull. I got it in Vegas at Lush Puppy, you can look at lushpuppyonline.com and it is called Orbee Dice. IT IS GREAT! Better than Kongs and anything I have seen. It has a hole in the 1 dot side to put treats inside to keep busy longer. They also have an Orbee Football that I'm sure is just as durable... The best, most random toys I have found yet!!!

I have bird dogs as well. My 15 month old Gordon Setter is also destroying toys left and right these days. He carries his soft toys around most of the time, but if he gets bored he kills them. I put treats in the Kong (hard treats) and only let him have limited time. Another thing that has worked is real sterilized bones, the large size. It's not a toy, but it does work for recreation. Tuffies seem to be okay, better than most. I have also found with him that large stuffed toys seem to last and he doesn't seem to have the desire to kill those as quickly. Another tip - we have six dogs - I keep a toy box with well over 70 toys in varying types (we have everything) this way the dogs never seem to get bored. It has worked for 7 years, Rebel has been the only one to defy this system and only in his recent destruction phase! Good Luck.

Another great and, through my experience, indestructible toy is the Galileo Bone made by Nylabone. Petco has it as well as most pet stores. If you get it, I'd be very curious to know if your dog manages to destroy it. My dog loves it. Good luck in finding the perfect toy!
