Chewing is a natural part of life for any dog. It helps to keep their teeth healthy, and is a way for them to play and explore. Some dogs also chew when they are particularly anxious or lonely. However natural it is, there is no escaping the frustration that accompanies returning home from work to find your favourite slippers, remote control or some other household object chewed beyond all recognition. Some breeds of dogs are more aggressive than others when it comes to getting their teeth into things, and even specially designed chew toys can be turned to rubber mulch in just a few days. To save you from spending heaps on toys that just won’t stand up to your dog’s teeth, we have put together this list of the best virtually indestructible dog toys for aggressive chewers.
