What are the Strongest Toys Available for my Dog?

Many dog toys state in their very name that they are “tough”, “strong” and “indestructible”, but given half an hour with a much focused dog, most of these durable toys can be reduced to tatters. So which ones really live up to their names?

The most popular rubber tough toys are the Extreme Kong range, which include an extreme Goodie Bone, which can be stuffed with treats and paste, and also, the famous classic Kong, with improved durability. These are made from unique natural rubber, and have unpredictable bounce and remarkable elasticity which withstands the most tenacious power chewers. Most dogs would have trouble chewing their way through these, but it is still recommended that the toughest chewers are supervised during play.

A new toy to the market is the Boomer Ball. Recommended by leading pet psychologists, this toy is simply a large plastic ball, available in a variety of sizes. The idea is that a ball is purchased, which is slightly larger than your dogs jaw, so that they can gnaw at the ball, but they are unable to actually close their mouth around it. They can chase and pounce on the ball, encouraging natural predator instincts, and it is perfect therapy for bored pets. The Boomer Ball is described as the only indestructible dog toy, and the creators are so sure, that if you dog does manage to puncture the ball, they will replace it, free of charge.

Other tough toys include rope toys, which can withstand a large amount of tugging and chewing, and rarely show wear and tear. These are perfect toys for fetch games and will outlast many other rubber and latex chew toys, but won’t give your dog the same satisfaction and probably won’t keep their attention for too long if left alone with a rope toy.

For tenacious chewers, the worst possible toys would have to be soft, plush toys. Things such as cuddly representations of puppies, cats, and even meerkats, are an economical disaster, and are unlikely to have a life expectancy of more than 10 minutes with a chewy terrier or bouncy spaniel.

Overall, the top contender does appear to be the Boomer Ball, as recommended for exotic animals such as tigers and wolves, it should be perfectly adequate for your domesticated pooch.

To purchase the Boomer Ball, and other tough dog toys, visit www.netpetshop.co.uk, where you’ll also find many other products, suited for your pet.
