      Our dog, Molly, polishes off most dog toys in moments. We did buy her bones from time to time which were longer lasting but, in the end, she buries these. In the meantime she chews our logs and I'm not at all happy about this, so I'll give The Kong a go. Many thanks for a useful hub.

      We've tried the Nylabone Dura with our Lab who is a serious chewer. He didn't care for it much.

      The Kong (with a little peanut butter) is a big hit though.
