Best Indestructible Chew Toys For Dogs: Buyer’s Guide

Why Do Dogs and Puppies Chew?

Some reasons may include:

– Attention seeking

Dogs may destroy things to get your attention

 

– Boredom

Dogs have a decent level of intelligence, and they need mental stimulation. If you don’t give them this mental stimulation, they will keep their brains occupied with chewing. 

 

Lack of exercise and excess energy

Chewing may be a way that dogs expend energy they haven’t spent during walking.

 

– Loneliness and separation anxiety

A lonely dog may get so lonely that they need a release. Chewing is one way dogs release energy.

 

– Youth & Teething

Puppies naturally want to explore things with their mouth. They also go through teething up until about 6 months of age – where they want to chew on things to ease the pain and ache of new teeth coming through.

 

– Individual Personality Of The Dog

Some dogs just naturally like to chew more than others

 

What Are The Best Types Of Dog Chew Toys, and Why?

Generally, the more solid toys and objects tend to be better for chewing. The rubber toys are one example of this.

Thin toys and objects, and a lot of threaded toys tend to be broken down easily by power chewers.

 

How Long Will These Dog Toys Last?

It depends on your individual dog and their chewing power and style.

For some they may only last a few second or minutes, and for others they may last months and years.
