Default Tough indoor dog chew toys

This is Boe, destroyer of any toy given to him. He is only 7 months. Pretty much every kind of chew toy I gave him he managed to destroy. Tendons, trachea's, bones etc.

Looking for something that does not stink though. I made the mistake of giving him a hoof from the pet store and we spent a while trying to figure out where he took a dump in the house. It ended up being the hoof that stunk so bad

Looking for something that will last a bit longer than a day.

He does not chew household items so far which is great.

any ideas?

Antlers are the only thing my dog can't destroy in 10 min. And he loves them! But, find 'real' ones, not the boiled, bleached, light as air ones from the pet stores.

I’m going through something similar right now. However when my other dog was young and the indestructible dog toys (even the ones made out of recycled fire hose) couldn’t cut it, Kong’s seem to be the best. My oldest pup is now almost 10 and it’s only his second one. We only bought another one because the first one became to small as he grew up.

x2

Plus I keep leg bones from deer and bear, cook them a bit so that the meat isn't raw (just to avoid worms and stink in the house if he doesn't eat the meat the same day)

Yep, antlers. The marrow inside is dried so it doesn't make a mess in the house and they last months.

I've greatly increased my popularity by supplying shed antlers to non-hunters, especially the cute female ones. One does what one has to

The original Nylabones are tough as nails, we got a flavoured one for my golden retriever and he had it gone in like 10 minutes.

x3 on the black kongs and nyla bones. I also found making sure the pup was well exercised and tired out kept him from getting bored and chewing.
Good looking dog, looks like a big teddy bear!

Nothing made of fabric will last two minutes.

Besides the King rubber, there is the orange fish that is good.

Big heavy soup bones. Put him outside to clean the marrow out of it, will take an hour or two. Then give it to him to chew on in the house. He will eventually eat it if he is so inclined, but it will take months.

Default He looks like a bad one to me!

My dogs can chew more than alligators, and the only rub with the antlers is that they drop them on the floor to get my attention. The large kong balls last the longest, and when we go for walks they are finding moose legs and they look pretty tough (they don't come home)

Let us know how this works out.

Default Chew

My Rotti used to chew up Black Kongs in no time. I bought a large Blue one with the little knobs on it, and it lasted through two dogs now.

Same thing with our 2 goldens. Ages 2 and 1. We give them antlers and gogi tree pieces. I think they're also known as gorrila chews. We also have a kong and they love chuck-it balls.

Yes you have to get the ones that are labeled for extreme chewers

I've been having good luck with a slingshot-shaped product called Benebone. Similar to Nylabone, but I think it might be more durable. The toughest Nylabones and Benebones are not edible chews, so keep an eye on wear and tear.

I used to have a Golden who would go through anything and everything (just in a matter toys and treat that I gave him - nothing of mine) of hours.

I finally found one that would last for weeks. It looks like a nylabone but I think it is called "Galileo". They are quite durable and he loved it.
