Finding the Perfect Long Lasting Dog Toys
Ryan here from the Pet Connect Pack! As dog owners, we dream of finding the ultimate dog toy. We spend hours searching for the perfect indestructible toy that will entertain our dog for hours on end and never, ever break. It is of course a toy that only exists in a fantasy world.
No dog toys can withstand persistent, and continuous chewing but some are more durable than others. At Pet Connect, most of us have large dogs, with a rather large bite on them. My good boy Co is a 32kg rescue dog, who loves to find the squeaker in all toys and remove them, as part of an initiation phase for the poor new toy. He also has something against most soft toys, and takes the challenge of removing all the stuffing out of the toy in a matter of minutes! Take a look at our guide to find the best tough toy your furry pal.
The Original Tuffy Toys – The World’s Toughest Dog Toys
TUFFY is a range of toys that take chewing very seriously. They have designed a range of toys that are not only extremely durable, but also look nice enough to leave lying around the house when you have guests over. Win!
There is one major difference from kid’s toys however and that is all in the stitching and the materials they use. The toughest 'Tuffy' toys have up to seven rows of stitching and when possible they add a protective webbing around the outer edge and this is sewn up to 3 more times. The Tuffy toys can also have up to four layers of material depending on the shape, size and style of the toy.
The Kong Company is probably the most well known when it comes to durable dog toys. They have a whole range of interactive, bouncy and fun toys of real good quality. Kongs have a classic style that’s proven, if your after a sturdy toy for your pooch, look no further. The Kong Extreme toys are great for those big biters that need a treat!
Rope toys are often over looked and not talked about much, but they are actually really durable and good toys for your dog. They are perfect for tug-o-war and for games of hide and seek. Our dog’s favourite rope toy is a Chewers Rope Knot, it is really easy to throw and once he’s fetched it he will spend minutes shaking and spinning it around in the air.
If all else fails, we have some awesome Venison products from Platinum ranch that will be sure to get your pooch grinning from ear to ear. Platinum ranches antlers are the ultimate long lasting chew treat, that also helps clean your pooches teeth while they enjoy a good chew! The Venison bone is a shop favourite, and perfect for those big boys and girls who need some long stimulation during a summers day.
