Since Boxers are very playful and hypo..:-) What toys do you get your Boxer or Pet that last more than a few minutes? Any suggestions?

My dogs tend to like big stuffed animals. They drag them around. Some dogs make a mess with them though

Thank you for responding and yes... this does make a mess and I end up sewing them with fishing line. The strongest tread I can find.. LOL

I would get them a very hard rubber toy bone. I see you are new. Welcome to MyLot. I hope you enjoy it. Be sure to recheck your postings, as some people will post back and forth, and some a month from now. Good luck.

I just looked at bear woods. Your art is lovely. Check out my art. I am a watercolor artist, and a rare scissor cutting silhouette artist. There is a video on my home page, and it's cool to see how I cut. I cut dogs, animals, cats, and much more. Just look under silhouettes. www.mgcreativearts.com Let me know what you think. Send an email.

Wow This is a toughie..i have had boxers for over 11 years now and i have yet to find ANY toy purchased that lasts..the best one we had was a plastic hedgehog which lasted about 6 months..usually toys are broke same day especially sqeaky ones!!Think the wisest choice is to get something quite thick and BIG.. the bigger the toy the less likely she can get a full bite on it...the thick chunky ring ropes that can be bought from pet stores are quite good though..

I know it's well gone Crimbo but I didn't see this before - sorry. I got my doberman a Kong flyer - natural rubber, soft for mouths, hard to rip to bits if used only on the beach during walks anyway. She also got a big brightly coloured string knotted at each end, this is surviving well but don't get sand on it, it goes through the washer well but takes ages to dry. We have a stick thing that picks up the ball like an extra arm that makes it easy to throw further too, tennis ball are hopeless - gone in 2 walks but if you can get a spongey ball about the same size it's brilliant. Do not get an aerobie flier - paw on - rip into bits = 1 walk, lol

I would recommend a stuffed animal or bones. Petsmart has a good number of their stuffed animals marked with a sticker that indicate the level of chewing. They call it a chew meter lol. I usually end up getting the highest one because my littlest one is extremely hyper.

Besides very big raw hide bones? I would suggest some of the better tug of war ropes. These will last a few days but they do cost more then the cheapy ones. We have a collie and she makes short work of the raw hide bones but the tug of war rope lasted her some months. She also has a ball or two but she's not as big on playign with those.

I have the same problems with my two pit pups. They tear up every toy I get them right away and no bone lasts for more than 30 minutes. I'll keep looking though lol. :)
