Choosing Tough Chew Toys

Pin It

Dogs are tough on chew toys and some breeds, such as Labs, are notoriously rough on them. Rather than purchase inexpensive chew toys, it pays to invest in heavy duty chew toys that will last.

We like Kong toys which come in different durability levels and can be stuffed with treats to create a challenge for your dog (and keep him busy for a few hours). The red Kong toys are good for ordinary chewers and the black toys are for extreme chewers; there’s even a puppy version available as well.

Although more expensive than lighter duty chew toys, these heavy duty toys will last months (or years) and, in the end, will be more economical…and ecological since you won’t be tossing torn chew toys into landfills.
