Some dogs don’t seem to grow out of their puppy teething stage--they still love to chew, and it can drive dog owners nuts! We’ve researched and reviewed a variety of dog toys designed for heavy chewers to help you get some peace of mind. But first, take a look at the following features to consider when looking for a tough dog toy for your heavy-chewing canine!
Items: Many toys come in one-packs, but there are a few that come in sets of two or more for extra value.
Type: We divided the main toy types into bone, rope, or ball toys, which can be interactive or solo toys for your dog.
Dog Size: Some toys are one-size-fits-most while others come in different size ranges to suit small, medium, or large dogs.
Washable: Slobber, dirt, peanut butter… a dog toy can get dirty, fast. Find out if it’s dishwasher safe or hand washable!
Non-toxic: When your dog is a heavy chewer, you want their toys to be non-toxic since they’ll be so heavily used.
Squeaker: Some dogs love squeaky toys, but some owners… don’t. Check if a toy has a squeaker before you buy!
