With the number of dogs that rip apart toys as if they were constructed of wet cardboard, you’d imagine that the market for super strong dog toys for rough chewers would be robust. However, there are only a few choices.
That said, the options available are overall effective. Do note that there are always exceptions. For every ‘tough’ toy, there’ll always be a dog here and there that is still able to rip the thing apart.
How the toy holds up depends not just on the quality of the toy, but how often a dog chews on it (is it his only ‘go to’ toy or does he rotate? Is his day filled with other activities or does chewing on toys occupy most of his time? Etc.).
So, if your Beagle needs a chew toys that really stands up to chewing, the two best options are:
– As mentioned earlier, these are one of the most popular, effective chewing toys and for Beagles that are very strong chewers, you’ll want to opt for the black KONGS, as these are the most durable. Do note that no toy is completely indestructible, but these are just about as close as you can get. Note that KONGS are made in the USA.
– Also made in the USA, these are great toys for Beagles that tend to rip apart other toys. They are made of a safe, thick and bouncy rubber of 2 layers. The inner layer is a bright red; should your Beagle chew through to that, you know that you have an exceptionally
strong chewer… But, guess what?
If your Beagle actually is able to do that, replacement is free! (minus shipping). At the time of this writing, shipping is just $5.25, so this is really a fantastic deal.
Though the donut shape is the most popular one (and the most durable), they also offer sticks and one great trick is to place a stick Goughnut through the hole in the ring Goughnut (use a bit of olive oil to help it slide in) and then you have a toy that will bounce as your dog plays with it.
