If your dog tears apart every toy he can get his mouth on, you aren’t alone. It’s a struggle many dog owners face.
You bring home a new toy, toss it to your pup and 5 minutes later you have a shredded mess.
It is so frustrating, especially when dog toys can cost $10, $20 or more!
I’m laughing as I type that because our dog Bear can destroy a toy in less than 60 seconds. Any dog toy that is soft and plush, he feels the need to shred that thing to pieces.
One of my jobs as a volunteer at the Humane Society is to pass out toys to the dogs. More than half of the dogs aren’t allowed to have soft toys because they shred them, which causes a choking hazard. And believe it or not, I’ve even seen some Kong’s with pieces chewed off!

No dog toy can be 100% indestructible, because the reality is that some dogs can chew through just about anything put in front of them. But I did find four companies (listed below) that offer a lifetime guarantee!

So, I decided to go out and ask our community… what their dogs’ favorite indestructible toys are? So here we go, dog-tested, and parent-approved.

Start by asking WHY your dog is destroying his toys. Is your dog bored? Or maybe just being a typical puppy?
Most dog toys are designed to be interactive with you, not to be left alone with the dog. So if you didn’t notice with the list of indestructible dog toys above, most of them are meant for chewing on.
If your dog is destroying toys because he’s bored, the answer is simple… exercise your dog more. Take him for more walks, play dog puzzles together, and just spend more time together.
It’s hard to find a dog toy that carries a lifetime guarantee. I mean really, how can someone guarantee that a dog can’t tear a toy apart.
