Dog chews

I know we have a number of pet, and particularly dog owners, and I wondered if anyone could share some long-lasting dog chew ideas?

Jelly is always wanting to chew on something but most toys and chews only last her a couple of minutes. 

What are some of your favourite dog chews and toys?

    With our dog it seems to be something they grow out of, because when he was younger he used to like chewing holes in his toys then taking all the stuffing out from inside, but now he doesn't do that so much

    We bought lots of latex toys in the shape of fruits and vegetables and they last a long time but the only thing that might put you off is they squeak when they are pressed so if your dog chews them constantly it might be quite annoying

    Those squeaky toys Lol I put a pen in the holes. Squeak gone. 
    Betty has a very large box of toys. That I now give away at Xmas because there’s so much. She doesn’t play with anything except a little squeaky ball that I haven’t killed. She literally plays football she’s had it for years. Ignoring All other toys. As She was two years old when I got her she was past any chewing stage.

    Jelly is gorgeous! 
    You can get different size dog treat toys & balls, you put or stick little treats into them & they're occupied for a good while getting them out.

    Yes treat balls are great. If you get the ones that aren’t easy for them to get out. There’s no overeating just hours of mind games.

    Some great ideas and suggestions, thanks all. She has lots of different toys but we're always on the look out for new things to entertain her. In our house she's definitely the most spoilt of us all.

    Digging holes is a firm favourite here too @woodbine. I spent the weekend filling most of them but the fresh soil is apparently even more fun!

    Some of the thick rope toys are good for chewing on, it also helps to keep their teeth clean. My 12 yr old dog never was a big player with his toys but now he’s older there’s toys all over the place, think he’s regressing  back to his puppy years 🙂,his favourite toy is a Santa that a friends got for him a few year back (she’s a dog lover too).

    Thank you @Steve_in_The_City, I'm biased of course but she is a lovely dog.

    Thanks @Zimba, will look at more rope toys too. Funnily enough one of her favourite toys is a giant gingerbread man dressed up as Santa!

    The only thing that's survived our 3s teefs is a Kong, they tend to be fairly rugged, but often not as fun.  So we just buy second hand toys, check for dangerous bits, then let the dogs have those.  It saves a small fortune. 

    I can't watch Toy Story now though, I get far too guilty over it.  :D
