    Promising review: "Our new 3-pound Shih Tzu puppy loves this chew pacifier — so do we! She is teething like crazy and it has been very helpful in keeping her occupied instead of chewing clothing, shoes, furniture, and us! Being so little, she has no problem holding or carrying around! We also keep it in the freezer to help with teething and she loves it ice cold!" —Amazon Customer

    Promising review: "Windy just loves her snuffle pizza. She has fun searching for the treats and I really like that there are multiple places on the toy where snacks can be hidden. The toy is so soft and well-made and comes in the cutest little pizza box. We went with the original design but there's an option to customize the toppings too." —Cori Posivak 

    Get it from DogNmat on Etsy for $25+ (available with bandana or dispenser).

    Promising review: "My Wicket fell in love with it as soon as I gave it to him! It's his new favorite toy! He loves the squeaky and the crinkly noises it makes and he throws it in the air, chases it, and sleeps with it. Thanks for such an adorable toy!" —Josie

    Get it from Chewy for $6.48.

    Fill their toy with their favorite treat, turning it into one of the pet toys from Amazon built to last.

    Promising review: "I have now had these for two German shepherd puppies who have enjoyed them — and they seem to last forever, even with relentless chewing. Each puppy gets to have one in their crate overnight, and it seems to be the type of toy that soothes them to teethe on. I do sometimes stuff the toys with kibbles, and it's a good mental workout for the puppies. They also love dropping them to bounce since the bouncing is so unpredictable." —Hope

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in four sizes).

    5. A floppy dog chew toy that features a soft plush material that's gentle on the teeth and can act as a snuggle buddy after a long day of play.

    Promising review: "As soon as we brought Lily home as a baby she found this furry toy and began to suck on the head like she was nursing from her 'mama.' Now, three years later, she still jumps in our lap with her toy ready for a snuggle. We have to keep buying new ones as the head from sucking becomes rather gross!" —Debbie

    Get it from Walmart for $2.42.

    6. A pack of no-stuffing chew toys featuring a paw-some mix of animal-inspired plush designs your dog can wrestle with. It's also great for keeping them away from those new sneakers you just bought.,

    Instead of stuffing, these are filled with crinkle material that will intrigue your dog for hours of play.

    Promising review: "With my puppy starting to teethe, these stuffed animals are perfect for her, and she loves the squeakers in them. She has been playing with them for a week and they haven't busted yet, so that's a plus!" —LynneS

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99.

    7. A flavored chew toy for puppies that aren't quite ready for a hard bone yet, but love to chew everything (including your favorite chair). The beef flavor will also help promote less destructive chewing that your furniture will thank you for later.

    Promising review: "I bought this for my 8-week-old puppy and it was a fantastic purchase. She is teething but hasn't figured out how to hold her bones to chew on them. The cross-sections curve in opposite directions so it can rest on the ground and parts will stick up for her to chew on. She can even use her paw on the other half to balance the part that sticks up to keep it from moving." —Mackenzie

    Get it from Chewy for $7.99 (originally $12.29)

    8. A chew toy for puppies they can go from gnawing on to snuggling with while you're away at work. For the extra-anxious pups, it comes with a red heart that mimics a heartbeat to keep them stress free while you're running errands.

    Turn up the heat using the heat pads that go inside and also help minimize stress.

    Promising review: "This was a lovely companion for our new puppy at night and totally worked keeping her content in her crate. We followed the instructions on the little heart insert and it was wonderful. Since then, we have put aside the heartbeat part and let her just add this stuffed animal to the collection of rare dog toys that survive her vicious chewing. This toy is STILL in great shape after all this time and with all the continued chewing and mauling it goes through. We have washed it semi-regularly in the washing machine/dryer and it comes out looking great. This was definitely a wise and helpful purchase in our case." —KK

    Get it from Amazon for $37 (available in five colors).

    9. A personalized coffee cup chew toy, because why enjoy a Sunday morning cup of joe alone? Now, you can sip your latte while your doggo chomps on their plush pup-acciono with you.

    10. A puppy tire that'll get your pupper tired as they attempt to get the treats out of the built-in treat dispenser — or from your lengthy game of fetch outdoors.

    Soothe your teething puppy's mouth by storing it in the freezer and watch as it zig-zags every time you give it a toss.

    Promising review: "This is a favorite treat dispenser and chew toy for our 3-month-old puppy. It is easy to load with treats and I usually stuff it with two different kinds so it takes Oliver longer to get them all out. Plus, he loves playing with it even when it is empty. He loves to play fetch with it too. It is just the right size for him and it seems to help with his teething." —Wendy

    Get it from Chewy for $10.99 (available in two sizes).

    11. A hide-a-squirrel toy to keep your dog from terrorizing the *real* squirrels in your backyard. Since this comes with a trunk and multiple plush squirrels, they can shake and chase these without you having to worry about any surprise ~gifts~ being brought inside.

    Each set comes with three stuffed squirrels that squeak and were made to be gentle on teeth.

    Promising review: "When our dog was a puppy he chewed on ridiculous stuff. A family member sent this to him for Christmas and it took us a while to realize, but he stopped chewing on ANYTHING else! We have a few of these throughout the house now. He carries them everywhere and often puts his head on it to go to sleep. He has destroyed every single toy he ever had within minutes except for those plastic or rubber Kong things. But not these. He must not want to ruin them because it takes him forever to finally rip one of these! And when he wants to play he brings us one of the squirrels! The squirrels are everywhere in our house!" —Arthur E. Balsamo/Janet Moore

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in four sizes and 12 styles).

    12. A puppy mat with chew toys because as much as we love playing with our pets, we don't love the mess of toys that are left on the floor. We can kiss cleanups goodbye though since the mat comes with chew toys attached.

    The entire mat is also safe for chewing as it's made with a plush material that won't damage their teeth. 

    Promising review: "As soon as I laid it down he pounced on it and has been playing with it ever since. He lays on it, chews on it, scratches at it (digging), barks at it, and drags it around the house. It keeps him distracted from doing those things to inappropriate items. It is one of his favorite toys and is the most versatile. I love that I can take it wherever we go so he has a soft place to lay down and all the included toys won't get strewn all over the place." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $35.97 (originally $37.97; available in two colors and for 10% off when coupon is applied before checkout).

    13. A suction cup pull toy acting as a tug-of-war stand-in for the days when you're too tired to play. It's versatile enough to switch over to a normal ball you can play fetch with at your nearby park.


    Promising review: "Purchased this for our 8-month-old puppy, Tucker. He is a super chewer and this ball kept him entertained all weekend! I love how you can slide treats in the middle." —Madison McCord

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in three styles).

    14. A chew toy for puppies inspired by some of your favorite animals and underwater creatures. Each one was handcrafted out of rope and features a vibrant color your dog will go mutts over.

    Get it from Sunshine Boutiq on Etsy for $12.99 (available in seven styles).

    15. A puzzle ball chew toy for puppies so your dog can challenge you to a classic game of tug-of-war. The durable rubber was designed to withstand even the toughest chewers, so you'll see who the real weiner is.

    Sneak some treats into this puzzle ball to help challenge their mental skills. 

    Promising review: "My 8-month-old goldendoodle puppy absolutely LOVES this ball! It's super durable, and this puppy is a dedicated chewer, destroying most toys in minutes. We keep it outdoors because it's weatherproof. The design makes it fun because you can toss it and the dog chases and pounces on the ball, which collapses and springs back. It seems truly indestructible." —Cestbon

    Get it from Amazon for $15.95.

    16. A variety of plush pan dulce squeaky toys to be gentle on their teeth. You'll definitely earn a few licks on the face after surprising your pooch with these.

    Get it from Xochico on Etsy for $5.98 (available in six styles).

    17. A set of wine-inspired chew toys for "popping a bottle open" with your favorite fur ball. As you sip your glass of white, your pup can curl up next to you with a bottle of their own as you enjoy the latest episode of The Bachelor., Amazon

    Each plush wine bottle uses a plastic water bottle to prevent stuffing from overtaking your home.

    Promising review: "My dog is OBSESSED with this thing! When the water bottle that came with the toy became too crushed, I put a new one in very easily. She carries this around all the time and usually destroys everything, but treats this toy pretty delicately. Love this!" —Jessica
