    Cool Need durable toy suggestions?

    Okay, so as we all do... We buy LOTS of toys when bringing home our new pups. So I did. However after today... we have TWO LEFT. Jovi has destroyed all of these toys. I need some durable toy suggestions. Now, I know KONG is a great brand for this.. but boy can that be pricey. I see on here that the rope toys are bad for dogs... but jovi LOVES to play tug a war with my chihuahua with these and now we dont have any because I took them away. Now I feel like they cant really play together.... Any suggestions?

    Molly and Kevin play 'Tug of war' all the time.. even though we don't buy them 'tug' toys!

    Socks
    Underwear
    Shoes
    iPhone charging cords (w/phones attached)
    TV Remotes

    If its not bolted down... its a tug toy. Now that the weather is nice when they get 'tuggie' we put them outside... and they use

    Tree branches
    Patio Furniture
    Patio Rugs
    Neighbor Kids
    .. etc


    Luckily they don't have any dominance issues (yet) with each other, but i feel your pain.

    haha oh boy! maybe that is why she has been trying to chew everything in sight. she is usually pretty good. But today she has already tried chewing up her daddys shoes, the door mat, bella (our other dogs) bed, She has destroyed 3 toys alone today, my laptop charger, And also my bra She usually will just try and test us and when we say NO she stops but today she just looks at me and keeps chewing. Im not understanding her mischievous attitude today lol

    We've had really good luck with Nylabones and Fat Cat dog toys. Buster is a shark and he loves them!

    We started out just buying stuffed toys at first, but Bella went right though them. I now buy only Kong toys because they hold up to EBD chewing but found buying them from Amazon they cost about the same as the stuffed toys we started with.

    Marrow bones, deer antlers, Nylabones, Kongs are the best that last..... the ones she loves are squeaky plastic balls

    I cut up a long sleeve shirt with a stain. Tied knots from the arms for one and wide strips from the front and back for another. Henry doesn't like it as much as the rope toys but he will do anything for attention. I still let him have the ropes. He loves them and doesn't chew them really. Just plays tug and carries them around proudly.

    Yes Nylabones, Kong toys and deer antlers. Rubble will rip a stuffed baby up pretty fast. As well as anything else he can find laying around.

    Leo loves playing/fetching with a hand towel that soak and freeze. I have a few in the freezer so when one melts I can get another one for him to play with. It helps with his teething too ATM.

    I have a Bionic bone that's really durable. Bionic makes several toys out of this indestructible plastic formula they invented after getting frustrated with their dog destroying everything. I got mine a local independent pet shop, but I saw them at PetCo and on Amazon. They're neon orange, so you can't miss them.

    My vet said she doesn't recommend real bones for EBs because they can bite off chunks and swallow them, because their jaws are so strong. I've been thinking about an antler, but I'm worried she might break a tooth.
