Brands that Advertise Indestructible Dog Toys
Our two dogs we have right now will chew anything. I caught them the other day tearing a rose bush up and chewing it like it was a Twizzlers. You can bet we have to look for the best indestructible dog toys out in the market place. These three dog toy manufacturers advertise that their dog toys are indestructible.
Most of these types of dog toys are made out of some type of rubber material that resists dog teeth. Each company has their own, proprietary formulas for making this material as you will see.
The daddy of them all is the classic Kong dog toy. We literally have one that has been through four dogs now that we have raise since they were pups and it only shows slight wear. The story goes that the owner of the company had a German shepherd that was eating rocks and wearing down its teeth. The owner started throwing pieces of the VW bus he was working on to the dog and when a part of the suspension looked more appealing than rocks the Kong was born. Kong makes different shapes and sizes; some with treat cavities and holes. Kong also makes three different varieties of their rubber which are; softer for puppies and older dogs, classic for most dogs and a harder rubber for those power chewers.
Next up is Planet Dog that has a line of rubber dog toys and their orbee-tuff material that these are made out of. Planet dog has different rubber for puppies and adult dogs. Their line of toys comes in a plethora of shapes and sizes. These dog toys are made in the USA by a company that gives a lot back to dogs through their non-profit Planet Dog Foundation.
Finally in the best indestructible dog toys makers is West Paw design and their zogoflex line of dog toys. Zogoflex is their proprietary rubber material that they make their line of toys that are guaranteed to be indestructible. West Paw design will give you a new toy if your dog destroys the one you bought. They have a whole line of toys for chewing, tugging and fetching. West Paw designs is another ecologically, socially conscious company that gives back to dogs through charities.
A term like "indestructible" can be overused in a line of products such as dog toys. In order to be truly "indestructible" these makers of dog toys have the history, testimonials and guarantees to back of their claims.
