It seems like each toy we purchase for Lincoln eventually gets destroyed by him.

Our problem is that we need some "organic" or "non destructable" toys. He ends up eating pieces of them and then vomits.

He eats the rope from rope toys, he eats the nubs off the plastic toys, he chews the stuffing ... then he vomits.

He is 8 months old ... what can we get for him so he still can play and chew? Something that we don't have to worry about him eating then vomiting?

If you're still looking-- I've had great luck with all of the doggy activation toys by Fat Cat Inc-- The cracklers are indestructible-- she's put her teeth through her pink bunny but it didn't rip or anything-- and that is the only one she's managed to injure. The only downside is that since they are so durable they can get a little gross with continued play so we have to give them a good cleaning every once in a while.

i wouldn't cook any bones. that is when they get more fragile and can splinter. we give winnie a raw marrow bone every once in a great while and she loves chewing on the bone for months after the marrow is gone.

^ I didnt think you could boil bones like that? I thought dogs needed them uncooked and cleaned?

I don't know if they are OK for puppies, but bully sticks (cured tendons) have really curbed Junebug's chewing. They last a long time, aren't ingested in large quantity, and are pretty easy to find. Also, a plain (non-cured) section of beef bone can be boiled to get rid of all the fat and marrow, and used as a chew toy. I don't see it as an especially appealing chew toy, but maybe your pup will like it. At least it won't splinter, and you can put a little PB in it sometimes to give it some flavor.

The hard nylabone is good, but my pup will only play with it in spurts, I have to cycle it in and out of his toy rotation. One suggestion is a good old-fashioned soccer ball, that seems to be a hit at my house.

winnie has not destroyed her hard white nylabone her orbee bone by planet dog and after 4 months she has only slightly destroyed her stuffed sheep made by go dog. all of these toys are allowed with her in her crate when we are gone during the day because they are the ones she has proven she cannot destroy (too badly)

what about the edible nylabones? at then, if he does eat it, it will be ok. and maybe get one size bigger? that way he wont chew his way through it uber quick.

Lance is very destructive with his toys as well, no stuffed animals allowed or squeaky toys. We have to be very careful as well. The kong we got him when he was a puppy is still around! I highly reccomend the kong as well. The other toys we have had success with and I highly reccomend are his football, and baseball (made from durable material) from Although the football has the white markings on it we had to take that off otherwise Lance would have chewed that off. The football is flexible yet he cant not chew it. He has had the football for quite some time now. The baseball is also non-destructible. The other toy I found that Lance cannot destroy is the Busy Buddy Waggle. You put treats in at each end and as they chew, the treats are dispensed. He loves it! I think if you have an aggressive chewer hemay not out grow it, I am still waiting for Lance to out grow it and he is 2 1/2! Good Luck. I know it can be a challenge...been there.
One last note: We did try the Kong dental stick and Lance chewed that!!! Although the regular Kong it did not as they get older they have different ones, the black one being the strongest I believe. We still have the blue one, the larger size though and actually still have his puppy one.

does the destruction stage go away? is this just a phase?
Comment by James on May 31, 2008 at 1:51pm
The old "water bottle with kibble in it" trick works and is cheap and disposable when they are at that destruction stage.
