      The toughest toys at my store literally are the Kong Extreme toys and the Nylabone Durables. It is good to know that there are alternatives out there for customers with more dinosaur-like jaws!

      I have about 1/3 of all the toys mentioned on this page. One trick I've found is the $1 store. I can get my pup a bunch of rope toys to shred for cheap. (Also Tennis balls and frisbees)

      That being said, he just shreds them and doesn't eat them. If he started eating them, this wouldn't work. Plus, when they get too shredded I just throw them away.

      Having something "okay" to destroy has made my dog not want to destroy other stuff.
