Pit proof toy suggestions needed!

Postby Kzlamal » Thu Jan 31, 2013 1:06 am

Hey -
As we all are aware there is no such thing as a "Pit proof" toy, they are quite the chewers! Along with other breeds. I need some new ideas for toys to get, I ordered a few online that I looked up and people recommended. However.... they didn't all pass the test haha. The only thing that has stayed intact is the Kong Ball Extreme, my girl loves them. I got the Jolly Pet Romp-n-roll Ball, I received that this past Friday and she has already put holes in the ball and gotten the rope out of it and destroyed. I also got her a Crackle Head Cuz Toy, she wasn't extremely interested in it compared to the ball but the feet of it are ripped off from not much play already. I got her an antler as well, which she loves and it's definitely gotten a dent in it but not completely gone. Anyone have any new ideas for durable toys?? Thanks! :)

If she likes fetch, the hyperflight K-10 jawz disc is very durable. It will get punctured, but is made to hold its shape.

If she's a chewer the goughnuts should do the trick. My dog isn't a big time chewer, but she loves destroying everything by pulling it apart. The less likely she is to destroy something, the less interest she has in it. While she loves fetching and playing keep away with the goughnuts stick, and will chew it occasionally, she has little interest in the doughnut shaped ones. Those long rubber squeaky kong toys last a couple of weeks. I've had a rubber "planet dog" bone and it has held up for well over a month now. I also had a bone shaped toy that was made of a rubbery dense foam and lasted a fair while too.

Do you guys think nylabones or planet dog bones are a better choice for durability?

I stay far away from Nyla bones. I've had too many issues with them.

Well, Curly has had small pieces get stuck in her intestines. They've caused her pain when pooping, and bleeding before. They weren't large pieces either, just small little pieces that accumulated together. I've heard other members here also had issues with them. Try doing a search on Nylabones here. Some dogs do fine with them, some don't.

The planet dog bones are a soft but tough rubber, so they have give to them. They can be torn apart with some serious effort. Of all the rubber toys Iris has destroyed, I've never has concerns with her swallowing them. Never seen any pieces in her poo at all, and considering the bright colours the toys are it would be noticeable.

Have you tried bully sticks at all? Considering the way Iris can tear apart most of the stuff that interests her, buying bully sticks in bulk aren't really that bad since it can usually keep her busy for 45 minutes to an hour. Better than most toys value wise.

I just buy the regular ones. Whatever is the best value by weight.

Goughnuts....they have a rubber stick, ball, and donuts. My dog can't even put a dent into that thing and he chews a lot of things. And the best part is that it's lifetime guarantee. West Paw and Planet Dog also claim destructible and lifetime guarantee. My dog has chewed off the planets on the planet dog "earth" model...but the golfball one seems to be holding up real good.
