Chew toys are essential for dogs for several reasons. Chewing is a natural behavior for dogs that helps to relieve anxiety, boredom, and teething discomfort, particularly in puppies. Providing appropriate chew toys can redirect their chewing instincts away from destructive behaviors like chewing furniture or shoes.  Chewing on toys also helps to maintain good dental hygiene by reducing plaque and tartar buildup, thus promoting healthier teeth and gums. Moreover, chewing stimulates the production of saliva, which contains enzymes that aid in digestion. Selecting durable and safe chew toys also prevents potential choking hazards or intestinal blockages. Ultimately, incorporating chew toys into a dog’s routine not only satisfies their instinctual needs but also contributes to their overall physical and mental well-being.

We put together a list of some fun long lasting dog chews and toys that your dog will love and that are good for them too!

These unique Bully Sticks are delicious and are perfect for that dog who loves to chew bones but needs something new that won’t damage their teeth as quickly- and it’s a delicious treat! These bully sticks fit into a unique toy that your dog can hold onto while he chews away on this single-ingredient, beef stick!  They also make a buddy safety device that holds the bully sticks so your furry friend can enjoy them without the hassle of holding the thin stick between their paws.

This rechargeable, Motion-Activated Ball is waterproof and perfect for that dog that loves to chase critters in the yard. It turns on as soon as your pet goes for it, making it a fun chase without any need for owner interaction until the battery is low.

If your dog loves playing with plush little friends, this Corn-Shaped Dog Chew is shaped like an ear of corn, and features kernels small enough to clean your dog’s teeth, a braided cord in the center, and a squeaker inside!  Remember, chewing on safe toys to help keep their teeth clean is super important!

Teething ropes are made for puppies but can be used for dogs of any age.  This toy consists of a ball attached to a small stand by a rubber cord, and treats can be hidden within the ball for your furry friend to find as he chews on the soft, rubber ball.  And he will have a lot of fun tugging on it!

Puzzles for dogs that can keep them entertained for long periods are great for the chewing desire too! This Hide-A-Squirrel Puzzle Toy is exactly as it sounds- plush squirrel toys are hidden within a plush tree trunk and it’s up to your pet to find all those pesky intruders. With this being plush, you don’t have to worry about them breaking any teeth, which believe it or not, can happen with chew toys!

These Treat Kabobs are made with chicken, pumpkin, sweet potato, duck, and beef, mimicking a kabob you might find at a barbecue.  It features a rawhide chew in the center as the stick that holds the whole barbecue snack together.  Or grab these “Chicken and Waffle” Dog Treats and the waffle-shaped dog treats will make your dog feel like they are part of Sunday morning breakfasts!

For smaller dogs, you want to make sure that the treat is appropriate for them. These Oats and Berries Dog Treats are pink and flower-shaped dog treats that are made specifically for smaller dogs but can be given to any size dog.  They are made with safe ingredients, such as real oats and berries as a healthy alternative to other treats.

Finally, these Animal-Shaped Dog Chews have adorably shaped dog chews that are rawhide-free and contain real chicken and vegetables. They are also shaped like safari animals, such as elephants and lions!  So fun!

I hope this post has helped you to find some new safe, fun toys and treats that your furry friend will love!
