The Importance of Durable Dog Toys

All dog breeds like to have their toys and, for staffies, this is especially true. As you know, staffies have a lot of built up energy and need somewhere to unleash that energy. This is where toys come into play.

All their pent-up energy seems to come out in the form of chewing all your stuff: shoes, furniture, socks, pillows, etc. Basically, staffies need something to chew on when they get bored.

Of course, some toys can’t hold up against your staffies powerful jaw. Plush toys never stand a chance. Tennis balls end up being swallowed or ripped into pieces and can actually be bad for your dog’s teeth.  In the end, you find out regular toys just aren’t made for staffies.

Don’t worry; this isn’t the end of the world. There are plenty of durable toys out there that can stand up against your staffy’s chewing. So, save yourself pair of shoes or two by investing in a couple of our favourite” indestructible” dog toys below.

However, this toy’s durability won’t stop your staffy enjoying it. It has multiple functions: you can throw it, put treats inside it or just leave your dog to chew it. Your staffy will keep coming back to this toy and they won’t be able to rip into pieces.

A popular idea is to put some peanut butter inside and freeze it to ensure your staffy will be obsessed with this amazing toy. They’ll be busy trying to get the peanut butter out rather than chewing on your shoe or a piece of furniture.

All in all, this toy will be a time-consuming piece of fun for your staffy. They are very well-reviewed, pretty cheap and durable.

5. Nylabone Dura Chew Plus

🏆 Best Chew Toy for Teeth and Gum Health 🏆

Nylabone Dura Chew Plus

This toy is made from a similar material to the other ones in the Nylabone range (nylon, hence the name), which is great news because it's seriously durable. This toy is slimmer than the Nylabone Duraw Chew "big", which means your dog can grip it better so it may not last as long.

However, the reason for it being slimmer in profile is to allow better teeth cleaning as you dog chews it.

Like the Oneisall Bone Chew, this product will help clean your staffy’s teeth with the raised nibs and ridges on its surface. It’s important to fight against plaque build-up since it can cause health problems for your dog.

Of course, any dog toy that can benefit your staffy’s health in some way is worth getting. If you want a chew toy that will last ages and is great for your dog's teeth and gums, this is the one to get.

  1. i went to K-mart and bought a bone shaped toy similar to oneisall and payed $3 for it, 2yrs later my staffy is still chewing it, and it’s still intact

  2. Asked if you can break nearly every single toy she can even break a lacrosse ball. This that crazy. 🤯

    • Hi Emmalei. Staffies love to chew and try to destroy things and, unfortunately, they have jaws that are more than capable of breaking most toys over time.

      To break a lacrosse ball takes some doing though; it’s actually quite an impressive feat of jaw power.

      Of course, very few toys will actually be completely “indestructible” but the ones on this list are marketed that way and they’re the closest I’ve come across so far.

      Thanks for commenting,

  3. Thank you so much for this review-our Staffy has a Kong ball which lasts about 4/5 years. We will certainly look into the other toys. any tips on anti barking unnecessarily and scaring Grandma to her wits end, would be very appreciated! And you and Merry Yule from UK!

    • Hi Mrs B.

      Thanks for your feedback, I’m glad you found it helpful. You generally can’t go wrong with a Kong toy. They’re great for heavy chewers like our staffies.

      With regards to the barking, it will depend on what the actual cause of the bark is. Once you know why they bark, you can then work on removing the cause.

      Coincidently, I am just finishing up an article about barking. The main focus is stopping them barking when left alone but there might be something in there that could be of use to you. If you’re on the push notification list (the little bell at the bottom of the page), you’ll get a notification when its posted. If not, you can check back at smilingstaffy.com/stop-staffy-barking and it’ll be there once it is finished.

      Thanks,

  4. Getting so frustrated now, just been and bought Kong Goodie bone and Kong Jaxx tug, been home less than 20 minutes she has already chewed the Indestrutable ends of the tug and chewed the rope, now she has turned her attention to the Bone and took a chunk off the end. Anymore recommendation or do I just not bother.

    • Hi Mark, thanks for your question.

      Usually, the Kong toys are very good for aggressive chewers so yours must have some very powerful jaws and determination. The Kong Extreme is one of the tougher rubber toys I have found.

      If those are getting chewed to pieces, you could take a look at the slightly firmer, more plastic toys like the Nylabone range. One of our staffies has this kind of thing and it has lasted ages: Nylabone Dura-Chew

      If that is no good, there are some DIY options available that I know some people have had success with and will save a bit of money. I can’t find the specific links as I saw them ages ago but there are some videos around YouTube for DIY toys that might be worth a go.

      I hope that helps,

    • Hi Diane, I’m sorry to hear that. Kong products have never let me down before and I know many people love the Squeezz ball but I guess each dog is different.

      I hope you were able to return the item without any trouble as that certainly isn’t an acceptable usage life.

      Thanks for visiting the site and letting me know your thoughts.
