    Default Puppy chew toy question

    So I know that adult bulldogs need really tough and durable chew toys and that a lot of people use the black Kong's. But what about for puppies? Should you get a softer puppy chew toy until they are done teething or just go straight for the extreme toys? Sorry if this is a dumb question.

    When Brutus was little I gave him puppy sized nylar bones. You can go to the pet store and pick the size that is appropriate for your puppy. I had to be very careful what I gave him because he was and still is a crazy chewer. He destroys all of his toys really quick. Kong does also make smaller durable chew toys, I would just go and look around.

    Castor got nylon bones too and rope chew toys. Then I made toys out of empty cardboard boxes and paper rolls (I put a small treat in it and folded it so he had to work to get the treat). He still loves them and I've used them for training (sit, wait, come, etc) - he learned very quickly to work for his toy/treat! Now these cardboard toys only last a few minutes but when he was little he would be exhausted by them. You need to supervise the dog when he's got a cardboard toy, though, so he doesn't eat it.

    Nylabones-both flexi and dura-come in several sizes. Kong also makes puppy kongs. Watch your pup as he grows-you may(will) have to take the puppy sizes away-and replace with tougher sizes! The puppy nylabones are too small, when the dogs get bigger, as one of my "eating machines" swallowed one-(I didn't even know it) until VERY LUCKILY she vomited it up!

    I stopped using Nylabones because they develop rough edges from all the chewing and Blue was cutting his gums on them.
    So we stick with the various Kongs.

    I made the mistake of giving Rocco the puppy teething nylabone when he was teething. Needless to say it lasted two days. Durachews all the way

    I quit giving Nylabones after I heard that it's what keeps a doggie dentist in business. Kongs, Goughnuts, and some from Okra..

    This may sound strange... but Kevin's (11 weeks old) favorite chew toy is an actual 'human' baby teething toy



    He goes NUTS for this thing!! I paid ~$4 for it from Walmart. I'm sure he'll destroy it when he gets older but for now its the best 'puppy un-crazy-ifier' i've ever seen.
