    1. A Kong extreme dog toy so strong, even the toughest of chewers won't be able to destroy it no matter how much they try...errr, gnaw.

    Reviewer's dog chewing on black rubber dog toy

    This toy is so amazing that 8,534 Amazon customers have given it a 5-star review!

    Promising review: "Well, my adolescent dog is finally old enough that he can destroy most dog toys out there. People rave about Kongs for good reason! He doesn't seem to be able to chew through these toys, thank goodness! We're a busy family, so I use these Kong Extremes to keep him busy and out of my hair. I mix approximately half a can of wet dog food with water to make a soupy concoction. Then I mix in some dry kibble and fill the Kong with this moistened, extra-tasty dog food. Then I freeze it. A frozen filled Kong will keep my dog (approx 60 lbs) busy for at least an hour." β€”Cholla Cactus

    Reviewer's dog at the beach playing with the frisbee

    This flying disc is like no other β€” it's lightweight, buoyant in water, easy to clean, and gentle on dogs' mouths. What more could you want in a toy?

    Promising review: "This is my dog's favorite thing EVER. He's a rowdy boxer/Lab boy who loves to tug, and these toys hold up really well. He holds onto it with both his little paws so no one can take it away. I have to replace them every couple months after continuous play. Of all the toys he has, this is always number one. It's his most prized thing and he loves to show it off and dance around with it. Seeing him that happy is definitely worth it!" β€”Super Awesome

    Price $7.93+ (available in small and medium)

    3. A treat-dispensing ball that will have your furry pal begging you to play at all times (sorry).

    Reviewer's dog playing with ball made from natural rubber

    Looking for a versatile toy sure to have your pup jumping for joy? This is it, my friends! This breathable rubber ball is ideal for playing fetch, tossing, and tugging β€” it's everything your dog wants in a toy!

    Promising review: "I was searching for a great toy for my pit bull (8 months olds) and decided on this toy. He is a chewer, and destroys anything he can rip apart. I went with the green X-large size ball, and he just loves it. It has some weight to it, and he still picks it up and runs around with it with ease. I try to only let him play with it while supervised, and so far it is still in one piece after a month now! When you throw it, it rolls, does not bounce." β€”DZ

    Price: $14.95

    4. A three-way tunnel, so your beloved furball can have endless adventures.

    Ideal for puppies, cats, rabbits, and other furry friends, this is a toy you're definitely going to want to bring into your home. It includes three connected tunnels, built-in crinkle paper, a peephole, and a soft ball toy. It will give both you and your pal hours of enjoyment. It's made of durable, tear-resistant polyester and is framed with a sprung-steel. It's also collapsible and portable so you can take it with you to a friend's house.

    Promising review: "This was purchased for my dwarf rabbit and she gives it two bitty ears up, lol. She spends pretty much all day going in and out of all the tunnels and hopping out of the middle hole. I plan to purchase a second for backup. It's very easy to clean. She has had it for three months and it has held up very well, even to her 'digging.' Great purchase for bunnies, not just cats." β€”Erica

    Price: $13.99

    5. A well-made plush toy, so your pup always has someone to hug and snug with.

    Reviewer's dog pulling on the toy with five-star caption "great for rough dogs"

    Made with a durable two-layer lining, these lil' guys are STRONG. Your pup can whip em' around, tug on em' and squeak away all day long with this knotted toy. I know what I'm getting my dog for his birthday!

    Promising review: "HuggleHounds are a must for all dog owners! I love every single one of their durable dog toys and my dog loves playing with them endlessly. I have purchased four or five of them now and every one is just as great as the one before! They are so durable and definitely are geared towards puppies who like to bite and chew. They have multiple squeakers in each one to keep your puppy entertained for hours. I have never had any issues with them coming apart and my puppy plays with them every day. I would highly recommend." β€”Mindy

    Price: $14.99+ (available in small and large and 22 styles)

    6. A Wobble Wag Giggle ball that will have you LOLing at your dog. Instead of watching a show on Netflix, you'll just watch your dog flip out over this toy.,

    All your dog has to do is nudge the ball with their nose to get it going. It shakes, wiggles, and makes sounds that will have your pup engaged immediately. They'll be able to knock it around with their paws thanks to the many clutch pockets. It's sure to be a winner in your home.

    Promising review: "I have a 7-month-old corgi puppy and this was his favorite toy out of all his toys he got for Christmas! He loves it so much that I have to put it up and away just so I can sleep. It's sturdy and not too noisy (I live in an apartment). His toy preference is for toys that make noise instead of plush toys without squeakers. It's lasted a whole week of play without any problems unlike another toy he already tore up, so it seems durable, at least for small to medium breeds." β€”Amanda

    Price: $11.99+ (available in four styles)

    7. A stuffing-less toy your pup can chew on without making a complete mess of your living room. You're welcome.,

    My dog is a Boston Terrier who likes long walks, ripping apart her stuffed toys to reveal the squeaker inside, and getting fluff in every room of the house. If your pup is anything like mine, this toy is sure to give them the chewing satisfaction they crave without creating a lot of clean-up for us dog parents.

    Promising review: "We travel a lot, so grandma and grandpa get quite a bit of dog grandchildren babysitting time. Mom is a neat freak and insists that these are the only dog toys allowed in her house. No shedding and no stuffing to pop out and mess up her pristine home. These are the only toys that our intense chewer has not ripped open and destroyed. A good buy!" β€”Time2Buy

    Price: $14.98

    8. A durable set of rope toys that you and Fido will be able to play with time and time again without worrying about breakage. It comes with four toys in various sizes for any pup.

    Reviewer's dog tugging on toy

    It includes a set of four rope toys for small and medium dogs that'll also clean your dog's teeth and massage their gums.

    Promising review: "These were great for my puppy. The sizes go up basically in thickness, and so the toy grows with her in that regard (while she doesn't outgrow the earlier sizes). The price is super affordable, and they are tough! My puppy is an avid chewer and these items have survived many tug-o-wars thus far." β€”Colleen Sinclair

    Price: $9.87 for a set of four

    9. A hide-a-squirrel plush dog toy your dog will become obsessed with as they search for the cute lil' squirrels tucked inside the log.

    Reviewer's dog sticking its head in the toy and chewing it

    Promising review: "Our puppy lives to destroy. Every toy we have gotten her lays shredded in indistinguishable ruins with the exception of this one little Squirrel House. We made bets on how long it would last – 15 seconds being the favorite choice. She doesn't waste time searching out the squirrels in the house. No, she just shakes the house with her head vigorously and the squirrels go flying. This is her favorite toy. She carries the squirrels around like they're her babies. Her favorite pull toy is the squirrel house and it's held up better than any toy actually made to be a pulI toy. I really, really don't get it – but this is the Samsonite of all dog toys." –In the Boonies

    Price: $12.99+ (available in four sizes)

    10. A collapsible cat tunnel that your feline friend will spend hours and hours running through. Even the laziest of cats will take a trot through these.,

    Promising review: "I purchased these tunnels for the Hill Country Humane Society where I volunteer. Dozens of kitties and adult cats are housed here for adoption. We keep the felines entertained with many little toys but the cat tunnels seem to be their favorite form of amusement and exercise. They love chasing each other through the tunnels and out the peep holes. They are a delight to watch. These tunnels are very colorful and sturdy and get a daily workout from a variety of feline breeds. I highly recommend these for anyone who loves their cats." –Dee

    Price: $14.99 for two tunnels

    11. A cat teaser toy for your cat to be endlessly entertained by, as you dangle the feather in front of them with a wand. They'll feel so accomplished once they finally snatch the colorful feather.,

    Promising review: "Very sturdy like a fishing pole with a comfortable foam handle. Heavy duty cord to hold each interchangeable feather attachment. Comes with a bag of several extra feather toys to replace as your cat wears each piece out. Easy to attach new toys with a 'fishing leader'-type safety clasp with NO SHARP EDGES. Great quality, terrific way to exercise your indoor cat, very durable, excellent value! This is both of my cats' absolute favorite toy!" –Honestly...

    Price: $8.45

    12. A tug-of-war toy that is flexible and durable, even as your dog digs their chompers into it and pulls as hard as they can! This toy is built for heated games of tug-of-war.

    Reviewer's dog chewing aggressively on the toy with five-star caption "the most durable of our dog's favorite toys"

    Promising review: "LOVE this toy. Our puppy loooooooves to play tug so I was looking for something that had 'reach.' This has been awesome. She loves to play tug with it and she's always careful to grab wherever we're not holding it (if we're holding it on both ends she'll go for the middle). Can even play standing up. She's 12.5 lbs and she hasn't destroyed it yet after a couple of weeks. Her current favorite toy. Highly recommended." –Debbie Wilreker
    Price: $13.95+ (available in two sizes and three colors)

    13. A super tough bone great for larger breeds, because it can withstand intense chewing. The bone comes in a bacon or steak flavor, so your dog won't be able to resist the meaty goodness this toy offers.,

    Promising review: "This bone is one of the best bones I’ve bought for my 60-lb. Golden Retriever/Australian Shepherd mix. She’s an aggressive chewer, any pork retriever rolls are gone in about half an hour. This is one of her favorite toys! She loves bringing it to me to share and then goes back to her chewing. You can’t beat the price on top of it being so durable." –Eleshia L.

    Price: $7.71+ (available in four sizes and two flavors)

    14. A squeaky plush "White Paw" dog toy so your pup can have their own version of your favorite hard seltzer drink.

    Reviewer's dog chewing on the toy

    Promising review: "I got this a few months ago and I was just about as excited as my dog was. My dog likes to chew through her toys within 24 hours and pull out the squeaky things. This is the first stuffed one she hasn't ripped apart. It's now her favorite toy and it's the first thing she grabs when we say 'go get your toy.' Like owner, like dog. The squeaker is broken now...but everything else is nicely intact and I even ran it through the washing machine. It's a must-buy for kicks but also good playtime." –Melanie H.

    Price: $13.99+ for a two pack (available in three styles)

    15. An interactive toy that'll keep small pets like rabbits and chinchillas occupied while they search for treats hidden in the toy. It'll withstand all their chewing and tossing, too.,

    Promising review: "My lionhead rabbit had a BALL with this! He has mastered it within 30 minutes. I love how durable the pieces are (bc he throws them around and bites them) and I think they need even more levels! When he's done he looks at me like,"OK that was fun, what's next? Can we do it again??" It's really great and I love it!" –Katie

    Price: $25.99

    16. An extremely durable chew toy shaped liked a cactus that actually brushes your dog's teeth as they play with it. It will stay intact for a while, even if your pup has an intense set of chompers.

    reviewer's dog chewing on the toy with five-star caption "surprised at the durability"

    Promising review: "My Boston terriers tear through pretty much every dog toy they have ever had. Most toys last a few minutes tops. This toy however stands up to the rest with flying colors. Not only is it tough but it is also seemingly indestructible when it comes to enduring my dogs. I am a cactus fanatic so I think this toy is also an adorable way to share my love of plants with my pets. Being able to add dog toothpaste to the center is an added bonus making this toy even better. The brush cleaner for the center makes it super easy to clean out any left over toothpaste residue with ease. I highly recommend this toy for anyone who has pets like mine who destroy toys in minutes, finally a lasting toy!" –Frugal Mom and Wife

    Price: $15.99+ (available in three sizes)

    17. Or a plush cactus toy because it has another toy stuffed inside of it, meaning that if your dog tears through the first layer of plush, they will have another squeaky toy to play with.

    In the before and after above, it took three puppies with razor-sharp teeth two months to even start tearing through the first plush layer.

    Promising review: "Bought one for my mom’s 'super chewer' and one for our corgi. They have become the favored toys for both dogs! While the super chewer is working on destroying his, it’s been two to three weeks and the outer cover is still intact. Meanwhile, the corgi loves fetching his." β€”Meghan S.

    Price: $10.99 (available in four deigns)
