Tear apart toys/things?

    Chew toys dont seem to do the trick for my pit but she does like to tear things up. She often grabs blankets or some of her toys and her head goes nuts left to right trying to cut it in half. If at any time a piece of plastic bag would fall on the ground she'd 'attack' it and try to rip it apart. I used to give her a piece of rawhide (an old working glove for example) but she would try to sneak some and eat it...and Im sure that eating that type of rawhide isnt good for them. Ive read of people giving their dogs plastic pop bottles, pillows and all sorts of common things from around the house, something I decided not to do. Are there any toys or things out there that satisfy this?

    Hahahaha, good luck, I had yet to find something that my last girl wouldn't shred in about 10 minutes...it's a common problem we have around here! I like jolly balls a lot, those seem to last okay. And, my last dog had this little rubber pig, that sounded like a pig, that she loved and did not dismantle. I got it from like Meijer or some where when she was a puppy and she never tore it up. I've heard bullymade (bullymake (?)) sells indestructible toys but never tried myself. Mine get lots of rope toys for tug, balls and kongs.

    Well we tried it all here... So what is the fix for this? You buy LOTS of toys cheap and let them destroy them, it's all you can do lol. I have chews and bones and other things they aren't allowed access to unless we are working but outside of that, it's a free for all on anything i don't want anymore or stuff i buy them cheap.

    The only things that really last around here are deer and elk antlers, or really strong Nylabones.

    Ok so not alone with this problem. :)
    Imagine this....she takes a Wubba toy by one if its strings...and shakes her head so that the actual toy hits both sides of her head/body. She gets real enjoyment out of something like that. She runs around the house smacking herself. I think cheap toys that she can just savage are probably best bet. She has enough things to chew on such as antlers, kongs, etc....but she needs something that she can just...break and destroy completely. Thanks.

    Extreme holy roller ball is awesome. Extreme kongs work well too. Souper nylabones work but you have to sand them down a bit after each use. I'm working on getting at least seven so I can rotate every day. I know nylabones are not ideal but it is all I can do right now. I'd love to find a large raw knuckle bone but I guess they are not so easy to get anymore.

    I seen not long ago a company was offering "Destruction Boxes" for pit bulls, they are boxes full of random dog toys that they can destroy. It's pretty cheap, i can't remember where i seen it though.

    Spring pole?

    Tonka loves the megablast gummy bear. She kills the squeaker in about five minutes. Then she chews on it and tries to get the squeaker out. Teddy chews the legs off of it.

    Teddy loves tearing apart the megalast ball. It takes him a while though.
  13. Go to home depot and get a piece of plastic conduit or pic like 1inch and a light thin rope. Get a tug of war type rope from the pet store or walmart and tie it to it. Use it like a heavy duty flirt pole but let your dog catch it. Then hold on and fight like you got a giant fish. My dog loves it and absolutely kills it.

    My dogs do pretty well with large Galileo bones. Other than that, they get fleece tugs. I get cheap fleece from the fabric store (or left overs from making leashes),braid 3 strips together, knot each end and they have a tug. They are so cheap, I don't care if they destroy it.
    It's even gotten to the point that I can just knot a few strips together w/o braiding and they are happy with that.
    Rikki will chew off tiny pieces to eat, but they are small enough I'm not worried about them. MUCH better than when I was giving rope tugs and she was eating strings of rope.

    8CA9E47C-AA64-43C1-9073-C6AFEE0A2C18.jpeg Nylabones are the best!! They last forever and our dogs knaw on them everyday!! I got so sick of picking up fluff!!

    My dog loves antlers and her kong extreme. I don't do Nylabones because they aren't edible and I've had issues with her getting constipated after eating toys.

    There are NO indestructible toys, only tougher toys that will last longer than others.

    Working the jaws... Toys and edibles and the never ending search. I've gone through a lot over the past few years. Use caution with cheap dog toy products. Stuff made in China is saturated with harmful chemicals and toxins. The safety regulations there are not as stringent as US made pet products. With most dog toys, chews, and tugs, we get what we pay for.
