The Best 6 Tough Toys for Destroyer Dogs


If you're used to coming home to a living room full of stuffing... this is the blog for you!


If you’ve clicked on this blog then your dog is most likely one of those pups that likes to chew. Like, seriously chew. Whether it’s a chair leg, a skirting board or your shoes… they always seem to find the worst thing to have a gnaw on!

Doghouse have been selling tough toys for nearly 4 years now, so we like to think we know a thing or two when it comes to the ones your dog can really get their teeth into. 

So you may be wondering… which are the best toys for my dog that’s a heavy chewer? We like to call heavy chewers, destroyer dogs! If you’re familiar with the sight of a living room filled with stuffing then you most likely have a destroyer dog too!

This selection of the toughest toys on the market have been tried and tested but remember… no toy is indestructible! We recommend giving these toys to your dog for a few hours at a time and not leaving them with your dog all the time, that way they’ll likely last longer but also it keeps the excitement going for your pup too.
