    If you buy nylabones you should buy the ones with the American flag on the package. Some are made in the USA and some are not.

    Kong Extreme and Mammoth Tirebiter are two that I have relied on for many years. It's just useless here to buy anything else that's on the shelves nearby as it won't last even one minute.

    If she likes to shake things and hit herself with them, she might like several empty plastic gallon milk jugs tied together with a piece of cotton rope. All of my bulldogs have loved to run around and shake this type of toy and it makes a lot of noise. It is not indestructible of course, but they have a lot of fun with it and it does last awhile. They did not have it all the time and it was an outside toy, but they sure had fun with it. I used about a 5 ft piece of rope and tied 3 gallon plastic jugs on it, makes a fun cheap toy. Eventually the jugs got chewed up and I just took those off and put new ones on.

    Maybe a Jolly Egg would be a good toy? My young dog played with it for 10 mins and then left it and won't play with it anymore. She is now ball crazy and I have to get strong balls that are as chew proof as I can find. So far the Jolly Pets Tough Tosser 3 inch ball and the Star Mark Chew Ball large are holding up well to daily chewing and chasing, I just got her an Orka ball but it is thinner and lighter so it may not last long.

    Nylabones are good for chewers, so are big raw knuckle bones. I can buy them from the grocery store or often the pet food store here has the Blue Ridge Beef brand meaty bones and those about make a meal for her. I think they are a thick slice of beef neck bone, she can chew that for a long time.

    Brindle is spot on really.. We have come up with many different toys here over the years from the jugs to bottles. All sorts of things really. I like to put Goughnuts in socks, they tend to play with them more then.

    I wish I would have thought to do that with Tonka's Goughnut.

    Teddy is crazy about the lids on water bottles and milk jugs. I just don't get it? I can't let him have those!

    Teddy is also obsessed with full 1.5 liter water bottles. He is constantly trying to stick his big head in the box and pull them out. If he gets a hold of one he goes crazy running around with this big full water bottle in his mouth! I don't know what to do with this guy!

    Anyone got some recommendations for an aggressive chewer. 3 year old male destroys Kong’s like they are snacks and managed to get out of his crate lol.

    This is Teddy's favorite nylabone. He got it for Christmas. I try to give him different ones on different days but he kind of got stuck on this one. I think it will last a couple more weeks. tonka's is PB flavored and Teddy's is chicken flavored.

    Tonka got out of her crate if I went to the store and was home within 45 min. I had to give her plenty of exercise if I was going to go out. She never chewed on anything or ruined anything except window blinds. We figured out she does better not being crated and hanging out by the window waiting for us.

    Teddy is almost three and he would hurt himself really badly if he got out of his crate. I have never left him For more than45 min. I'm trying to decide if I want to order the really big vari Sky kennel $279. I also want to use my IPad to keep an eye on him if we leave him alone.

    I was able to solve the crate issue. I put the crate in the doorway with the door facing into the room while I am away and I have had no issue since. I can try the nylabone. Thank you for suggesting those. This guy is just a chewer lol. Got one of those tough toy brands, 5 min and it was destroyed. I got the king tennis ball for my smaller female today. He took one bite and it was ruined lol.
