Anyone who owns a pet knows that chewing is something they love to do it’s as natural to them as barking or wagging their tails and it can become a serious problem especially if they take a liking to your favourite shoes or furniture.
The good news is; you can train your four-legged friend to chew other things. If, however, like me, you have an aggressive chewer who can destroy just about anything in a matter of minutes it can be difficult to find an item that will last.
We have reviewed some of the best indestructible toys for dogs and found there are ones strong enough to withstand even the most destructive chewer.
Why do dogs chew?
Chewing comes naturally to canines of all ages. In the wild dogs spend would spend hours chewing the bones of their prey. It keeps their teeth clean and strengthens their jaws and domestic animals enjoy chewing just as much.
Our canine companions will chew on bones, sticks, toys in fact, just about anything and while it is normal for them to do so it can become a big problem if when you come home from work they have chewed through the kitchen door or eaten your best trainers.
Top 4 reasons animals chew:
Just like us humans, they have their own personal preferences when it comes to entertainment some love a ball or frisbee while others prefer a cuddle with a soft cushion and some love a good old-fashioned bone to chomp down on.
That being said, if you have a “Chewminator” you will want to provide tough dog items for aggressive chewers that will last. By far the best inextricable in the UK are made from solid rubber and the leading player in the market is KONG. They produce a wide range for all sizes of dogs and are generally considered to be the most durable and safest.
Most squeaky items are not recommended for aggressive chewers as they are easily destroyed and allowing your pet to play with fascinating toys which are torn apart within minutes will increase their destructiveness.
There are however a few which will stand the test of time such as the Outward Hound Snake and Gigg L Bone by Sharples and Grant which although not a squeak does make an intriguing giggling sound.
Plush toys are also not usually the best choice for determined chewers but over recent years companies like KONG and Outward Hound have developed super-tough soft chews which are made from heavy-duty fabric and have no stuffing to make a mess if the inevitable happens.

It is important to teach a puppy from an early age what is appropriate to chew and what isn’t, and this applies to toys as well.
A lot of people complain about aggressive chewers destroying tennis balls and soft toys, these products are not designed to be indestructible and should only be used at specific times when the dog is supervised.
