We know you love your dogs, but you might not be a fan of how quickly they can destroy a toy. Whether it’s out of excitement, curiosity or over-playing with their new obsession, some dogs are natural power chewers. And while dog owners are thrilled when we bring something home our pups love, it’s normal to feel a ping of regret that the toy you spent money on is ruined within hours. Here are a few of our favorite indestructible dog toys.
Pet parents of power chewers probably already love the Nylabone line of nylon “bones,” but did you know they also make toys? Check out the Power Chew Double Action Chew Toy that is soft enough for carrying yet durable enough for chewing. Also, check out the Power Chew Double Action Ball and the Power Chew Dental Dinosaur for a little variety. All of these products freshen your pup’s breath and massage their gums. Talk a win/win/win!
Many manufacturers claim their toys are indestructible, but GoughNuts guarantees it. They’ve even built indicator lights into its toys that turn red if the toy becomes compromised. The toys are also easy to clean, float in water and are recyclable. The original GoughNut is shaped like, well, a doughnut (hence the name), but they also make sticks and balls.
Another one of our favorite manufacturers, Planet Dog’s products are durable, eco-friendly and made in the USA. For power chewers though, its Orbee Tuff line is among the best. Its simple fetch ball, available in green or pink, is great for tossing or self-play in or out of the water. If you’re like us and not fans of stepping on dog toys in the dark, try its Luna ball, which glows in the dark.

Your dog loves a squeaky toy, right? Problem is, they last about an hour. And you have to watch them closely because the pieces that actually squeak are a choking hazard. We feel your pain. When nothing but a squeaky toy will do, try Fluffy Paws Durable Bone-Shaped Toy. It lasts much longer than other squeakers, but that’s about the best you can hope for with this style of toy.
We hope this list of toys brings your pup happiness and exercise and saves you some stress. Those are our goals at Dog Day, Every Day, too! Please give us a call at 513-860-3647 to talk with us about your doggie daycare or grooming needs!
