    Promising review: "The Kong is the go-to for keeping dogs occupied with their treats. These work well with any kind of treats as long as they fit inside. We have been buying this as a care package for all the foster dogs that my neighbor is fostering." —Kung pow wow

    Get it from Amazon for $7.49+ (available in six sizes).

    2. A stick chew toy that mimics the texture of real wood so maybe they'll stop gnawing on the legs of your expensive coffee table.

    Promising review: "My bulldog loves these wooden chew toys. A few months ago she started acting up and eating the wood siding shingles off the house and part of our Jacuzzi deck. We would fix it and it would happen again. She had a lot of toys so we knew she was not just bored. I asked our dog trainer what to do and he suggested we give her sticks as toys since she seems to like chewing wood. We tried that, but the sticks would get broken or thrown away by the gardeners. So, when I came upon this real wood toy I had to try it. It is amazing! She loves it and she has not chewed any wood off the house since we got the first one about a month ago. I just came back to buy a second one so she can have her favorite toy inside the house too. She is so happy with it!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in four sizes and 14 styles).

    3. A shoe chew toy for any pup with a taste for fashion AKA any dog whose favorite chew toy is your favorite footwear.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "My little puppy who just turned one year old loves this toy. Before getting this for her, she had other toys but she preferred my shoe. Now I placed this next to my shoes and she takes it and plays with her own stuff, and she loves the little knots and ribbons end it is her favorite toy. I know they say dogs are colorblind but my dogs are drawn to bright colors such as pink and the color really attracts her. She loves playing with it and now our others love it too, so we are going to have to buy more, and possibly the matching purses. They are very durable, considering how much she plays with them and the others play with them too, and I would highly recommend a large shoe, because my puppy who has just turned one is three pounds and she would not want the smallest one. I purchased the largest one for her which is six inches, I believe, and it is the perfect size because she likes to pull it around and play with it, and it is not too big. This is just the cutest thing ever!" —PetMom

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in two sizes and four styles).

    4. A Pet Tunes Bluetooth speaker that comes preloaded with 90 minutes of calming music developed by a sound behaviorist to relax your anxious fur baby. Anxiety can lead to destructive chewing, so sometimes soothing your pet can be more effective than disciplining them in a frightening way or resorting to medications.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising Review: "I've been training dogs for nearly 30 years, have tried every product on the market, and seen dogs medicated for so many emotional unbalances. I've tried many products and have noted that even medication can have no affect on a dog's condition. In my ongoing quest for products that help dogs to relax, I bumped into this cube on a dare: a friend popped one in my bag and said JUST TRY IT! So I did: I went home and powered it up while I was editing one of my books. I found it quite relaxing, but nothing and I mean nothing prepared me for what I saw when I turned around! My two kids, and four dogs were lolling about blissfully on the couch. The rest is history! I recommend these cubes to my clients and use them in my house (with both dogs and children) to signal naps and quiet time. I suggest them whenever my clients dogs have emotional upsets — expressed with excessive barking or destructive chewing, or to calm phobias like storm and separation anxiety. This little box and now her latest acoustic collar have improved the lives of some many dogs! Thank you!" —Sarah Hodgson, IAABC, author

    5. Some yummy peanut butter cookie treats you can use to reward your pooch when they listen to you and drop that fancy pillow they've been chewin' on all morning.

    6. A stimulating activity mat to keep your pups occupied and out of trouble when they're bored, anxious, and feeling a little...destructive. Try hiding treats or kibble in there to ensure that it has their *full* attention.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My puppy LOVES this mat! He gets super excited whenever he sees it. He sometimes doesn't like to eat his kibbles in his bowl, but he has so much fun finding and eating kibbles when I hide them into this mat. I heard nose work is also good for reducing separation anxiety in dogs, so I give him this mat whenever I need to leave more than two hours. He deals with separation way better with this. I'm 100% satisfied!" —Bom

    Get it from Amazon for $34.98+ (available in two sizes).

    7. A bottle of bitter apple spray you can spray on your belongings to make them taste bad to your pupper who just won't stop chewing. Of course, some dogs inexplicably find this flavor delicious so it's worth testing a little bit out to make sure they *actually* hate it before coating your whole house in the stuff.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I got a puppy. We love him, but literally he tries to chew everything. He chews the clothes on my body, carpet, wood, furniture, my fingers, EVERYTHING. We give him toys and make sure he has proper things to chew on and we spray this stuff anywhere he has a particular affinity to AND IT WORKS. It doesn't smell awful to me and I'm not going to taste it, but the smell alone drives him away from my furniture and carpet. This is a must-have if your dog is a chewer. I have heard some dogs don't mind the taste, but my guy gives me accusing looks every time I spray his favorite bannister rail, my shirt, my fingers, cords, the floor, and anything else he's taken a notion to chew." —Dee

    Get it from Amazon for $14.74.

    8. A cult-favorite dog toy that includes a plush log and three squeaky chipmunks you can hide inside to keep your pupper busy in moments when you can't keep an eye on them. Plus now they can finally fulfill their dreams of being a proud chipmunk hunter.

    Kimber / Chewy

    Promising review: "My big older Aussie also treats those little squirrels like babies. And she has never had a litter. Oh but she loves gathering them all together, she frequently carries them through the house and tosses them in the air to signal her excitement. I have had the large one for three years. The little squirrels don't squeak much anymore but they are tough and well played with without being torn. She destroys toys to get the squeaker in everything else. I have machine-washed and dried the squirrels and they come out fine. I just purchased another set for a friend's sweet rambunctious pit bull."—Donna

    Get it from Chewy for $14.99 or Amazon for $12.99+ (available in four sizes and six styles; replacement animals also available).

    9. A pet corrector that emits a harmless hiss of air to interrupt chewing or barking for dogs who just don't seem to understand the word NO.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "GET IT!!!!! Wow just wow! Have a three month old puppy who would constantly nip and bite you whether you were sitting or walking. Plus bite the furniture and couches even after long runs and walks. One spray gets her attention, and she stops and goes to get her toys and play with those. All I have to do is show the can most times." —AMC

    Get it from Amazon for $9.90.

    10. Some wood polish and conditioner to repair the scratched and chewed up furniture your dogs have already gotten to.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff is absolutely AMAZING. My wife and I were getting tired of looking at our worn-out cabinets and wood paneling and were very close to paying a professional thousands of dollars to refinish it all, but then we came across this product. Our paneling and cabinets were looking rough. We have two dogs that jumped up and scratched places. We also had an area that was damaged by water spots where our dog bowls were. Several other areas were just worn from heavy traffic. This stuff was like a magical eraser for water spots, scratches, scuffs, and any other blemish. We simply wiped the product on with a paper towel and let it sit for 20 minutes before wiping it off with a clean towel. Everything looks brand-new. I'm buying a couple more so we can finish our cabinets and wood paneling. We're so glad we found this product." —Kris

    Get it from Amazon for $14.85.

    11. A durable glow-in-the-dark ball that'll make nighttime less boring for doggos who react to boredom by finding something to chew that doesn't belong to them.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My dog loves this ball! I have a 1-year-old Husky who loves to chew on everything. This ball can handle her destructive nature. I work late and by the time I get home, it's dark out but I still want to spend time playing with her and this ball works amazingly. I toss it in front of a light for a few minutes and its charged and ready to be thrown. She loves the ball so much that when she's done playing fetch, she'll bring it to bed with her. There's a hole in the middle that makes a whistling noise when thrown, which catches her attention. Great ball, glad I bought it." —Quyen

    Get it from Amazon for $6.38.

    12. A small, but durable squeaker toy to distract pups who don't seem to ~carrot~ all about how many of your personal belongings they've destroyed.

    CherryWillowPets / Etsy

    CherryWillowPets is a Portland, Oregon-based business that offers handmade crocheted cat and dog toys.

    Promising review: "Fantastic quality!! My puppy loves his carrot and knows it by name. And it's hilarious to see him carrying it around and the leaves flopping. He usually destroys everything but not this! It's incredibly strong and well made, and he loves chasing it too much to try to tear it up." —Katherine Hubley

    Get it from CherryWillowPets on Etsy for $7.50 (available in six colors).

    13. A ball launcher that'll help tucker your pupper out so they have *zero* energy left to be destructive.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "OMG this toy is so fun. Our lab loves to chase balls and this toy will tire him out when the weather is bad. I laughed so hard as he ran around trying to get all the balls. He caught on and would drop one in his bed and wait for the next. Gun is easy to use. It’s a hoot. Highly recommend!" —Julie GR

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95+ (available in three sizes).

    14. A personalized Bark of America chew toy, because maybe if your pup has their own credit card, they'll realize how much money it costs to replace a chewed up couch. This one's going on your tab, Fido!

    15. A durable chew toy with multiple textures that massages your dog's gums and will help them forget all about the sweet, sweet mouthfeel of your TV remote.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My dog usually chews up his toys within a few days. We've had this toy for over a month and it's still completely intact. We use it like a frisbee and he loves catching it in the air. Also good for hours of chewing time — saving the furniture, baseboards, etc. Would highly recommend." —KGB

    Get it from Amazon for $7.19+ (available in two colors and various styles).

    16. A soup dumpling chew toy for anyone who's ever turned their back for like a second, only to turn back around and find their fur baby chomping on their takeout. Now your pup has their own delicious-looking toy to keep them busy while you eat the real stuff in peace for once.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Recently got an 8-week-old puppy who loves to chew. This week she will be at 10 weeks and so far the toy has held up! I knew she would need something to chew on while we teach her that furniture is off limits. She loves everything about this toy. It's her favorite since she can tug on the rope, make the ball roll, and try to get treats out of the teeth part in the ball. I'm extremely happy I bought this and when it wears out I will definitely be buying a new one." —Danielle Buchanan

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in two colors).

    18. Or a simple rope toy for the pets who are perfectly satisfied with a plain ol' rope to whip around and chew on...instead of turning your nice carpet into their favorite chew toy.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have a German Shepherd/Pointer mix who is 10 months old. He has been in the throes of teething and destructive exploration. He's chewed up clothing and shoes. He chewed a hole in our couch and one in our brand new mattress (he was never left home alone until this point, but as my mother came to visit and my boyfriend was back at work, I had no choice but to trust him alone for about an hour a day for three or four days... he clearly didn't earn that trust). He loves ropes because he can gnaw them, whip them around, and play tug of war or fetch with them at any given time. We love ropes because they keep him occupied and relieve his desire to chew things. Unfortunately, he was destroying rope after rope after rope. Some ropes were worrisome because they would quickly start fraying and falling apart. We would have to help remove strings he had swallowed from his behind while he was out doing his business... My boyfriend's mother picked up a Mammoth TireBiter tire and rope toy for him but it was much too small. Still, he loved it and it stood up very well to his chompers despite being way too small/weak for him. Looking for a larger version of the Mammoth TireBiters, I stumbled across this rope toy and gave it a shot. Let me tell you, I don't think I will ever buy rope toys from any other brand! We have had this rope for over a month and it is still going strong. It does show some small signs of wear and tear but you would swear we bought it last week. It is very strong and durable. It has held up through many long gnawing sessions. It has been put through countless hours of fetch and tug of war with no signs of giving out any time soon. I am so in love with this rope and so is my pup!" —Shaienne

    Get it from Amazon for $2.09+ (available in seven sizes and in three, four, or five knot styles).

    19. A flavored chew toy that's *way* tastier than your oven mitts, shoes, or whatever else your fur baby loves to destroy. It comes in bacon, chicken, peanut butter, and original flavor, plus the ridges and nubs remove plaque and tartar to help promote good doggy dental health!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I waited to review this because I wanted to see how long it would last. My dog is a chewer and has went through the large cow bones in less than two hours. That's $20 gone in two hours! He has chewed through a minimum of $250 worth of chew toys in less than two months. The Nylabone was recommended to me by a person at the grocery store who has a husky (mine is a husky-terrier mix). She said he will most likely never quit chewing. She said she tried the Nylabone and it was a lifesaver for her. I tried it. It has been almost two months and he hasn't chewed through more than one-quarter of it and he chews on it daily. Everyday, I pick it up out of the floor and put it in his toy bin and he immediately takes it back out. It's not like he doesn't chew on it because he does. Well worth the money and it has saved my baseboards!" —meredwine

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in four flavors, two sizes, and variety packs).

    20. A durable rubber puzzle ball you can stuff with treats to keep your pup engaged for hours so they'll forget all about their big plans to chew up your favorite hat.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was searching for a great toy for my pit bull (8 months old) 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." —DZ

    Get it from Amazon for $8.25+ (available in five sizes).

    21. A set of squeaky woodland animal plush toys to keep your pupper occupied and out of mischief when you have other things to do. Plus, it doesn't contain any stuffing, so even if your dog tears through it, you won't come home to a huge mess.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Tougher than they look. My 10-week-old puppy doesn’t care for balls, rubber bones, Kongs, or rope toys, but he will destroy anything that is furry, including my lambswool car wash mitt and his doggie bed. Because of this, I bought these toys but I thought they would be torn apart in minutes like a stuffed animal. He definitely loves these toys, and hasn’t destroyed them yet. Definitely a good buy — glad I found something for my puppy to chew on besides his furniture or my furniture." —Walter Wu

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99

    22. An incredibly tough bone ideal for larger breeds and intense chewers. They'll love the bacon and steak flavor that packs way more umami than your comparatively bland sofa cushions.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have two wonderfully rotten hounds, and everything else that has said it's for heavy chewing has lied. I was super reluctant, but figured why not. It has been over a week and my little big devils have barely made a dent in these. One hound is 110 pounds the other is 85. We got the XL size. If/when they finish these, I will definitely buy more. It's worth every penny and has kept them from eating any more of my furniture. I wish I had known about these two couches ago!" —ashdash

    Get it from Amazon for $11.80.

    23. And finally, a sturdy, personalized pet toy storage basket so they have their own dang furniture to chew on!

    The Embroidery Hutch

    The Embroidery Hutch is a small business based in Grand Blanc, Michigan that offers a variety of embroidered items such as clothing, masks, accessories, and more.

    Promising review: "This basket is perfect to organize and store my dog's toys. My dog is a chihuahua mix — about 13 pounds. She loves going up to the basket to pick out her favorite toys and play. The basket is made of high quality materials and is sturdy, so even though my dog is a chewer I know it will last a while. The personalization is such a nice touch, I love the font and color options — the medium pink matte contrasts well with the grey. Thank you for a great product!" —Alyssa Lynn

    Get it from The Embroidery Hutch on Etsy for $34 (available in 10 basket colors and 50 glitter or matte graphics colors).
