Are you ready to revolutionize playtime for your pup? Don’t give up hope if you’ve yet to find a toy your dog doesn’t demolish; there are plenty of durable options out there for aggressive chewers. As you make a choice, keep these factors in mind.
A: Durable dog toys made of nylon can be a lifesaver for dog owners who frequently have to replace toys. But are they safe? Most sellers of nylon chew toys will stress that they are safe for chewing but not for consumption. If your dog can break off larger pieces or gnaw it down to a size where it could be swallowed, remove it. Ingesting these pieces will mean a trip to the emergency room.
A: When puppies’ adult teeth start to grow in, they tend to chew on things to offset the discomfort. This is called teething. While it’s important to provide teething puppies with toys they can chew, choosing the right kind of toy is key. The hardest, most durable chew toys may actually be too hard for puppy teeth; wait until all their adult teeth have come in before providing them with these. Many companies make teething-specific toys you can use in the meantime.
