Indestructible Stuffed ANimal?

Recommended Posts

Anyone know of such a toy, or one that wont't have the stuffing come out right away? Our dog loves stuffed animals but he also is a little too rough with them. We've bought a couple so-called "pet" stuffed animals and he's even pulled the squeakers out of a few. He's a good dog and leaves everything in the house alone, just loves to chew on his stuffed animals.

We've tried a few and none have held up very long. We pretty much just use Kong toys, Nylabone ropes, etc. now.

You could try "Tuffy" brand stuffed dog toys. They worked pretty good for my lab before she was a year old. Once she was passed the de-stuffing stage, her Tuffy toy was retired and now has been passed down to her puppies.

They are not indestructible by any means, but they do stand up better to rough play than regular stuffed dog toys.

Stuffed animals last about 30 seconds with our lab. A tough one does not exist unless they make one out of kevlar.

Try the "Jolly Pet Teaser Ball". It's a ball within a ball that our lab loves. Google it to see what I'm talking about. You can get them at Fleet Farm. I think I paid $10 to $12 for the 10" model.

If you can find a stuffed animal that lasts, send it to me and I will guarantee that my Great Dane can shred it in short order!

Have you tried the Skinneaz toys? Basically, a stuffed animal with no stuffing in it. Ours loves the dnag things.

A couple of things we've tried. My wife made a basic stuffed toy with no squeaker in it. Eventually it gets destroyed but lasts longer. Something about the squeaker sets my dogs off and they don't stop until it is removed from the toy. Even with the stuffing removed the dogs still like the fabric "shell" that remains. She also takes a few strips of felt and braids them into a tight rope. The dogs love them and they are still intact after many weeks.

We've come across Tuffy's toys. They're basically ultra tough stuffed toys. They have a "tuffness" scale for how indestructible they are. 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest. We've got an 8 and a 9, and while they are starting to show some wear, they have held up for quite a while and all of the stuffing is still in them (says quite a bit that they are holding up to the jaws of a Great Dane). Plus, the squeakers still work, and our dog normally gets the squeaker out of anything in less than 10 minutes.

Chuck and Don's usually has a pretty good selection. You can check out the manufacturer HSOforum [Please read forum rules before posting again. Thank you].

At 4 months, and the few prior, our GSP has destroyed anything that squeaks, including attempts at the cat. (cat fights back) These toys are favorites of his also, and when he goes in the back yard to do his business, you can tell by visual inspection when he has been on a steady diet of cotton stuffing to supplement his food.

"kong" toys or similar, freeze with a little peanut butter I'm told is a good way to keep 'em busy. We have a "Buster Box" which is a puzzle box for their dogfood, that they have to knock around to get the food out, and it comes out really slowly. That buster box keeps him busiest the longest. We probably feed half his food to him that way. Its all but indestructible by a dog. Hard, slick plastic, with no angles acute enough for them to get their mouth around.

    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
