5 Tough Plush Toys for Dogs Who Love to Chew
Dogs love to chew, play and “mouth” their favorite toys. If you have a Labrador or Golden retriever, you know their greatest joy is derived from carrying special soft toys around in their mouth. They greet you at the door with the toy, they follow you around the yard with the slobbery mess.
If, like us, you have very destructive dogs who love to disembowel every plush toy they come across, you know how hard it is to find a toy that will hold up to their destruction. But you can’t turn away from those eyes begging for a soft, plush stuffed animal to munch on.
Well, we’ve got some good news. We found a few toys that will outlast the others by days (maybe even months)![note style=”5″ icon=”yes”]Remember, no toy is completely indestructible, but these will last much longer than others. Keep a close eye on your heavy chewers when you give them any type of toy. These toys are designed to be PLAY toys, NOT chew toys. While they are extremely durable, they are NOT indestructible![/note] [heading style=”1″ color=”#996633″ style_color=”#996633″]QPG goDog[/heading]
The goDog™ brand from Quaker Pet Group features toys for dogs of all breeds and sizes and each feature the tough Chew Guard Technology™. These are some of our favorites due to the extensive designs available, from zombies (for The Walking Dead fans) to dragons (for Game of Thrones fans).
Chew Guard is a manufacturing process that adds a tough, durable liner to every toy. The reinforced seams and specially engineered lining were made to withstand the toughest chewers – your dogs will love them!
The best part: Quaker Pet Group guarantees their toys – so if your dog does manage to destroy one, just send it back and they’ll replace it!

No seams make the Slap Happy Pogo Plush line of faux sheepskin toys from PetSafe some of the best, most durable plush toys out there. Extendable arms make it easy to “shake and kill” while the internal rubber cage provides a unique “bounce-back” feeling that also keeps the squeaker rolling around (which makes it harder to destroy). There’s no stuffing to destroy because the cage provides the support. This is a fun, soft toy that your heavy chewers will love!
