JW Pet rubber squeaky toys last our staffie a few months. The bowling pin, fish and dino cuz have been much chewed and shaken, though they do make quite a noise. Good for playing interactively but they wouldn't stand up to persistent destructive solo chewing.

You should buy Petstages toys, Kong are brill for stuffing treats in, charity shops are brill you can buy loads of cheap teddies without worrying about the cost when they need throwing, rope toys, empty drinks bottles (with caps off keep an eye on wear) and tyres, rubber balls, Nylabones last AGES!

Scot-Petshop Ltd on Amazon have some great latex dog toys, i have a Staffi that is a power chewer and normal toys don't last 5 mins with him, we bought a latex boot from Scot-Petshop Ltd and it lasted nearly a year, we were so impressed with this toy we bought our dog a few more from them and they all are long lasting. Hope this helps you.

I agree. Kongs are the best toys especially the black ones.

Kongs and Nylabone are good for chewing... if you just want something to play with that is durable try the Tuffy's toys - made of really durable material and you can get giant ones! Super cool!

yep- our staffie cannot destroy his extreme kong (which he goes crazy for with a little peanut butter inside) and souper (!) nylabone - both from amazon

I own a lab x who destroyed most toys I eventually found a large football which he loves and has not destroyed. Playing with it on a hard surface has also kept his claws down. These indestructible dog balls are available online pet stores. recently acquired a cairn and found a smaller version of the hard ball and he loves it too. They are prob best used as outdoor toys.

I own a Staffie X. She must have the largest collection of Kong toy's I have ever seen. She loves them. We have owned several dogs, including German Shepherds and Dobermans, and they have all loved their Kongs. Buy the correct ones for the dog and they will last forever. My Staff has never destroyed any of them and I have never needed to use any sort of treat to encourage her to play with them. She just loves the way they bounce in unpredictable manners and will keep her entertained all day.

I agree nylobones are a
Must but I don't let them take them out doors as they bury them and they are not cheap. That's why they have the indistructable football for outside.

I think the destruction is the fun part for Staffies mine seem to have a well thought out process for ripping things to shreds in the most efficient way possible :) Xtreme Kongs are fine but mine don't find them exciting unless full of peanut butter or frozen yogurt so I give them as a treat and once the filing's gone they show no interest in actually playing with a Kong.

Having said that I've found two things that really seem to last and they enjoy the Cyber-Dog Toy's - Galactic Tyre and the Boomer Ball.

Get the black kong and i can 100% assure you they won't bite thru it.

My Staffy chewed thru everything i bought her and a black kong was the last resort and hey presto she had it over 2 years and not one bit biten out off it.

Try the 'Boomber' ball on 'the company of animals' website. My last german shepherd had one for 9 years and still never destroyed it, there are cheaper ones on the market - but they are not as good.

My Lab and German Shepherd are both the same and chew through everything. I bought the a Busy-Buddy dumbbell toy and they have had them for 4 years so far! Excellent !

Stag bars are expensive but give the dogs natural minerals and last for ages!

In my experience there is no such thing as an indestructible toy for a large staffie with powerful jaws but for a small or average sized staffie the extreme kong is best. I buy my staffie the largest available extreme kong and it lasts him until he decides to have a good chew at it then its in pieces. I have went through alot of them. Once I bought him one and that same day it had to be thrown out as it was a mess.

Tee hee. Good luck in your search. :-)

RubyShoes is right. The fun is the destruction and the ripping apart. What would I want an indestructable toy for? Boring! I want to zoom in on the weak point and go for it. I had a nylabone once and what was I supposed to do with that, exept chewing it into little bits? Pretty sure I could do the same with my Kong if i tried. I don't get bought toys anymore, my mum has given up finding anything that can survive my destructive staffie personality. It got pretty expensive too. So she now gives me stuff I am allowed to destroy and I love it. Old shoes are very good, you can swing them by the laces and rip and chew them. Old jeans are exellent for ripping and tugging. Empty plastic bottles you can chase on the floor and then tear them into little bits. I love running through the garden with a plastic bucket or a flower pot, holding them high in the air or rolling them on the grass and then settle down for a good chew. A few times I have been given an old teddy or pillow to kill. Great fun, but very messy, so it doesn't happen often. Old tennisballs are so nice to rip apart. First you have the yellow stuff to come trough, and then the rubber inside. Very satisfying. Also important to say, that I am a good boy, so I know that I am only allowed things that are given to me, and I have to sit down nicely before I get them. From Mack-2 years old

Can I change my mind about stag bars. Bought two med size. Each one only lasted three days with my labs and they weren't at them all the time :-(

My dog has managed to eat three kongs into little bits already so if you have a dog that likes to destroy toys, they are not as durable as people make them out to be! And my dog is only a little border terrier!!!!

Oh thoroughly agree. The only thing my dog hasn't been able to demolish in nano-seconds is the extra large kong which you can buy on Amazon - I bought her the bone shaped one and it can be filled with food also. It is also very chuckable and bouncy so she has great fun retrieving it and as she is a porky staffie it helps keep her fit with running etc. Good luck!!

I have a Staffordshire Bull Terrier x Pitbull terrier, he has muscles on his muscles! He has 2 Kongs, 1 large and 1 medium and they have lasted ages, but he doesn't constantly chew them. Another good product is Ruff and Tuff Beef Chomper which is widely available and only cost a fiver and he has had that for a while too. The trick is to have available a few strong toys, that way they're not constantly chewing on the same toy and they really do last longer!

ive also got a Staffordshire Bull Terrier x Pitbull terrier, he has muscles on his muscles very strong dog but i do think thoes kong toys dont work as he chews through every toys he gets even cluding the soft toys he ripeds the heads off but the eyes gose frist then the noses then the big mess to clean up hes even chewed up an old wodden walking stick in bits the only tennise balls he hasent chew through is slasingers tennis balls and tescos own brand tennis balls seemed to be the only toy not to break up hes like denis the meanis up to know good he loves fire works loves to chase one and eat one but hoping he dosent hes even chewed through very hard plastic dog food ball with a sqweeker sound made in germany and hes chewed through the hard rubber kong food toy in very tiny bits so well he can rip up the very toughst dog toys going inclueding a metal key ring bit five very thick key rings in half and even bent a metal door key in four places .,so why i dont bother buying toys for him that cost alot fiver here and up to the expensive toys so i only buy him tennis balls that he loves. and tree stick instead dosent cost alot realy
