    Ok so Chesty loves water bottles..but he can shred it in less then 2 minutes, and i worry about him eating little plastic pieces. He never has them unsupervised but still it wouldn't take much for him to eat a piece. He also loves deer Antlers are those ok for him to chew on? Another favorite is tennis balls but he pops them within a week of me buying them. Stuffed animals he does well with he doesn't shred them he just " sucks" on them i guess is the word. But he's going through toys like crazy. So anyone have any good toy ideas.

    Winslow has one of those bottle crunchers - loves it! Had it over a month and it's only beginning to come apart now, but it wasn't a very sturdy material like I'm inclined to suggest to you but I think your Chesty might like that.

    I'm not sure what else... He had a Kong squeaky toy on a rope, so far it seems to hold up well. Good luck! I love buying him toys, I'm pretty sure I buy more for him than I did for my daughter when she was a baby

    Nylabones are great, they last a long time in my house. I especially like the ones that are "textured", one is "the textured ring bone" and the "textured bone". There is a toy called "zogoflex hurley dog toy" that my guys love and has lasted since Christmas and still going strong! Deer antlers are great for bullies and they usually last a long time as well. Those are really the only toys that last a long time at my house!

    Maggie doesn't seem terribly interested in toys,... but she LOVES a rawhide. We give them to our 9 month old shepherd mix (Cato) to keep him from chewing up all our socks and underwear... ha ha! (but seriously, we're running out of undergarments.. argh!)
    Anyway, I do not allow Maggie to have rawhides. I recently was able to get her a deer antler. I was a little apprehensive about it afterreading horror stories about dogs swallowing them whole. So, I took Mags to the Natural Paws retailer nearest me (an hour drive) and the lady there was extremely helpful. She recommended getting the biggest one we could find (since Maggie is such a ferocious gnawer and will swallow just about anything whole) and she said that the little bits she does manage to eat are digestible and safe. Also, another benefit is that if maggie ever gets bored with it, we can flavor it by burying it in the dogfood bag for a few days or rubbing peanut butter or cheese or coconut oil or something like that on it. The antler has tons of little grooves and areas where yummy flavors can collect...
    So far, she loves it and has not gotten bored with it yet. It is so nice to be able to give her something while Cato has his rawhide. Now she doesn't have to watch him with envy.
    If you get one, get the biggest (girth and length) one you can find.

    See my post of Brutus eating things he shouldn't. We are sticking to nylar bones and large kong toys from now on. Good luck.

    Brynn loves stuffed animals. She won't shred them, but she does throw them around and pounce on them then shake them around then do laps around the living room. I have a Kong for her also - I fill it with peanut butter and freeze it, once I put a few piece of her kibble into the peanut butter with it also. She LOVES that. We usually sit out on the deck if it is nice enough for her and she will sit there for hours with her kong if it has food in it.

    Harlea has way too many toys that we split them between the rooms in the house. Everything from no stuff stuffies, kongs, nylabones, moose/elk antlers to little squeakies... She loves them all but goes nuts for the little soft rubber toys that she can destroy in a matter of second. This weekend we picked up a new softer rubber toy made by Petstages called an ORKA and she loves it and it is still in one piece after hours of chewing on it.
