Gotta wait it out
by: Lisa

My dog grew out of the "destruction of toys" stage but in the meantime I had to find inexpensive things for her to chew up and easily repaired or replaced. One thing I did that she loved (me, not so much) was to cut off the leg of an old pair of jeans. I sewed one end closed and stuffed it with all the fiber fill from all the stuffed toys she chewed up.Then I sewed close the other end. She would,inevitably, tear out a small hole and start pulling out the stuffing. When she was done I picked up the stuffing and shoved it back in the hole and let her pull it all out again. Gets monotonous but she was entertained and she never chewed up things we didn't want her to. Sometimes I put things in the fiber like squeekers or tennis balls or a treat of some kind.
Large ropes with big knots tied in them may entertain her.
Hide things in empty oatmeal boxes and throw them away when shes done destroying it. Always keep an eye on your dog that she doesn't choke on small pieces or any fiber. that said,
Once you start doing things you'll think of other things......that's when you send the ideas you get here so we can use them too!!
Don't forget to read all the other ideas on this site. I have used many.

Help for destructive dogs!
by: Katie ellen

We were having the same kind of problem with out Lab.
Our Pet shop suggested these hard rubber toys called Kongs.
They come in all kinds of different shapes and sizes and are made of hard rubber which is pretty much indestructable! You can put treats inside if wanted and they really keep dogs busy for hours!

Here is a link if you want to have a look at them :
