I have a 3 year old cocker spaniel, Tucker. Right now I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions for good toys. He is a very aggressive chewer. We have given him stuffed toys (he chews them and takes all the stuffing out) toys with ropes, rubber toys ( he chews them up to get to the squeaker) I have bought several Kong toys which he destroys. I bought the snake with several squeakers ( will squeak even when a nail has been driven through them) he tears it up in no time. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

I volunteer at a large, local shelter and have witnessed all manner of toy destruction.

West Paw Design makes the Jive Zogoflex Durable Ball Dog Chew Toy. They offer 100% money-back.

Personally, I'd go with Kong products due to their ready availability ... but not any ol' Kong. Here are three that might just work for your dog:

1. Kong "Goodie Bone" (sort of like a Nylabone). Mighty tough to destroy.

2. Kong "Extreme Dog Toy" (Typical Kong shape but made of far more durable material). Comes in BLACK. The red Kongs are not going to work in your situation. Black only! If he can devour one of these, you may have to resort to ball bearings or hunks of granite :gig

3. Kong Squeez Stick (Contains a squeaker) that your dog might not be able to murder. Again, very tough stuff.

Main thing to keep in mind: Do not, do not, do not provide "Knuckle bones" or "Antler" bones or other REAL bones of that sort. They will invite dental slab fractures, torn or sore gums, etc. I would never give one to any dog, regardless of his chewing prowess.

It might be a good idea to stay close and supervise any of the above items at first. It won't take long to see who's going to prevail ... dog or toy. A couple of durable toys, though expensive, are a better value than cheaper toys that last minutes. Oh, you already know that! Good Luck and let us know how it goes.

-Balls that are too big to chew, just hold. (As in ball just barely fits in dog's mouth when mouth opens wide. If can't bite down on, must use side of mouth, harder to chew)
-Sticks from yard. :gig
-I've seen others get calf hooves, might be worth a try...

I think that balls that he can't chew would be the best toy
