toy murder

At 20 weeks, there seems to be no toy I can buy that can last over 30 minutes without being destroyed.

I am talking about any soft toys because that is my boy's preference. I have spent up to $20.00 on the super stitched ones and still can't hold up for even an hour.

He is the first puppy I owned that makes no attempt to chew my wood furniture, couches or moldings and I want to reward him with the toys he likes best, but at $10-$20 a day, I'll go for broke!

I gave up long ago on soft toys, even the ones that advertise a tiger playing with one. None of my girls ever had a soft toy last more than a few minutes. So I now buy Cuz toys and Nylabone toys. They are the only ones that last in this house.

ive seen some ones they do like Aliens, Dragons and crazy things like that, they are multilayered and stiched, im sure someone put them up on here, they do giant ones and everything dont know if thats what you mean but i was considering getting one, Caes loves his ropes, anything rope he will love, but i have to keep trimming off the long strandy bits they only last a couple of weeks before they need replacing.

I found them they are called "Tuffys" http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/?ie=UTF8&k...l_40ufboqivt_b

cant vouch for them but i am thinking about one

Bones. Try some bones. Stuffies are an endangered species here although he is crazy about them.

Though toys with stuffing last here unless they get a hole my boy likes the rubber toys that squeak. I buy them at walmart for 1$.

They are tough to buy for, I make Lexi's stuffies and stuff them with the same material and NO squeaker. When stuffing them, I use a long piece of the same material. That way when she does get it open, she will run through the house as to parade it in my face. That's when they get taken away. Sometimes I can repair them and sometimes it goes in the trash. But for $5.99 a yd, I can make a lot. She is a really small dobe, so I don't have to make them huge. She has a kong bone that I don't stuff, it belong to Oliver. That one has lasted, she really knaws on it too. I just bought a little dragon by Go Dog at Petco, I haven't given it to her yet. I will report back on it's lifespan. It was $9.99, the larger size (dobe size was $14.99). It does look like it is sew very tight, we will see. I bought her a Tuffy, the starfish, she never should any interest in it, never touched it.

We have a 16 week old puppy now, that also loves to chew.
As I supervise her stuffies, and in the beginning I would voice an "ITCH or No/No" if she was trying to pull one apart or chew a leg off / same with my last dobe, she tried defelting a yellow tennis ball, and I raised my voice on her to "stop it" and just allowed her to mouth the toy, but never destroy it
- I seriously try and set some ground rules (early on) with a dober pup, when it comes to exercising some care on its toys / and it has worked very well

Nope! These tuffy's are the $20.00 ones he got through in an hour! I ACTUALLY brought it right back to the store. I have never done that..LOL..brought a mangled toy back! But it was 24 hours after the purchase and I said to her.."come on!"

That would be an idea, but my pup will pee all over if I even attempt to raise my voice at him. He really enjoys ripping at them, I wish he werent so strong!

Guess you can still try him as a juvenile--but the bad record won't help when he tries the same thing at age 3--many states won't allow you to expunge a serious crime, even if the perpetrator is just a kid. LOL

We have the same thing here - Angus LOVES soft toys, but destroys them in like 2 minutes, even the tuffy toys. We have a kong wubba that has so far lasted with Angus munching on it.... I know it's not a stuffy, but right now its the closest thing he'll be getting lol

Amazon.com: Kong Wubba Dog Toy, Large, Colors Vary: Pet Supplies

The only other thing that Angus loves more than stuffed animals are the bully sticks we buy for him... bones he likes, but the bully sticks he LOVES.

This might sound a bit left field....but let them pick the toy for themselves at the shop (as in select it off the rack). The ONLY toy Basil hasn't carnaged is the one he picked himself....Mr stuffy. I can even leave Mr. Stuffy out unsupervised in the house! All other toys that I have picked (even supposedly tough ones) have been de-stuffed in less than 2 minutes of unsupervised distraction.

Mr Stuffy has many intense play sessions per day, and runs around the house squeaking his heart out (sometimes at 2am ) he has had a golden shower....and a wild ride through the washing machine....but he still squeaks and still has all his stuffing! (we're talking over 3 mths here!)

My gal LOVES to destroy stuffies! The tuffy ones make it about 15 minutes before they are scattered all over the house. Kong Wubbas may make it a few hours. The Cuz balls make it a week or so (after the feet are chewed off and spit into my hand).

I now look for sales on stuffies and buy them when they are on sale.

Also all toys are supervised activities! Because she likes to chew things I have to watch her very carefully! She is good about not swallowing what she chews and since the day I adopted her I have put my hand in her mouth with a hooking motion to retrieve any thing that I think may be too small for her and choke her. Like you see parents do with a toddler. So she's totally fine with me putting my hands in on and around her mouth for small toy bits.

The longest toy so far is the kind you put an empty plastic bottle in for the body, it doesn't have stuffing just a bottle. She'll chew the face off those but the bottle can be replaced multiple times for toy goodness.

To each their own but I strongly feel if they destroy toys, beds, ect then they don't get one. Dogs can get blockages from the smallest of things or swallow a piece of material even when your watching. It's very dangerous and easy. Your dog has very likely decided tearing up the toy is the correct reaction to getting one. By watching them do it and not reacting your allowing or reenforcing the behavior. The dog doesn't need a reward for not chewing furniture it just shouldn't be allowed. Use bones or solid toys to redirect or reward your puppy.

We have a kong wuba, I think. but it has a bear head. he wripped up the bear head, so i took all the stuffing out of it, and put it back down! It still has the ball and the strips, haha! So, I guess this wubba DID last more than a half hour

Over time, I learned that giving stuffies to Dobe puppies was a lost cause (and just plain dangerous) beyond about 4 months.

My adult Dobes who do agility collect tons of stuffies at trials--the cats play with them. The Dobes have bones (large--no filling type), nylabones (large), Kongs (large), balls (large) and a large rat (which was one of six collected by my dogs at a trial an agility club used as trial prizes about 7 years ago)--one of the rats survived the Aussie who used to remove all squeekers from any toy that had one and the 7 year old fawn dog has spent the last four years walking around squeeking it (until I can't stand it any more).

Working at a vet clinic I've seen too many obstructions from stuffing or material chewed off of stuffed toys. So I don't care how much the puppies like these toys as soon as they can tear them up they don't get them any more.

hell mine destroy Cuz! Every toy I have ever bought that claimed to be "tough" has been destroyed within a few days of getting it. Mine could chew concrete! They get nylabone, and balls that cant be chewed. I have one now I wish I could duplicate, its rubber but has lasted over a year and is still mostly intact. They even put holes in basketballs!

My dogs would never touch a Nylabone. None of them. I have wondered how they stayed in business.

Jackson is 9 months and loves his stuffed bears. He NEVER EVER EVER gets them unless we are watching him closely. I know that the polyfill can cause an obstruction.

I buy them at Goodwill from 59 cents to $3.00. I tug and pull on them at the store to find toys with really strong seams. I cut out the plastic eyes and stitch them closed. If he starts to pull at seams or try to "gut" them we take them away. We've had one we call "sucky bear" for over 4 months now, because he sucks on it. It has been washed over and over.

For now he is having to stay in the crate while we are not able to keep an eye on him, even when I simply walk upstairs to cook, I will leave him out and in an hour he will destroy as much as he can.

IDEA IDEAS HELP?
he has tons of toys and bones all over
.....
I have always preached, "you can't fix, what you can't see"...and the first ~2-4 months of puppy ownership is the most critical period, for establishing a well mannered dog more, that clearly understands all house rules and the owners overall expectations.

My previous dobe and now my current puppy were both supervised 24/7 while someone was home...the crate was used only when we went to work, but when someone is around, the young dobe is always close by...and learning much, through the humans giving of time.
If I go to the restroom, the pup comes with me and its voice taught to leave the garage can alone.
When I am in the shower for 10 minutes, the pup now waits...lying on a comforter in the hallway...and at 16 weeks old now...is trained to rest and not chew the soft blanket bed, till I get out of the shower.
When the wife is cooking, their is a thick mat for the pup to play with toys on, under the kitchen sink.
More soft blankets on the floor, beside the computer station...we always know where our pup is, and she is constantly watched to stay out of trouble.
When we sleep, the pup is between us (on the master bed) and for the first 10 minutes Dad rests his hand on the puppy and control her chewing to leave the blankets alone and she soon falls asleep.
^^^^ All of which, show many puppy improvements weekly (here).

My last dobe was an angel in the house at only 4.5 months young unsupervised with full access to absolutely everything.
- no crate or baby gates in the home needed
My new puppy could be ready by 6 months old (goal) or slightly longer, only time will tell.
- but the house manners start with much supervision very early on, and every new day is a fun bonding and learning experience

^^^^ I even buy into the theory, that doberteens can be avoided...if much structure & attention is afforded, in the early days/weeks/months.
Maybe a bit extreme, for some...but proven results, can speak for themselves !!

I find that the dog decides what toy he wants to "keep" and what toy he wants to annihilate from existence. We have bought all sorts of "tough" toys, and to this day, the only toy that has survived is a cheap stuffed purple bone with a squeeker in it. It has been around for 2 years and both our dogs love and respect this toy.. So strange.

Sorry my computer hung up and after relogging in - I posted #22 from a saved cut&past to the wrong thread...should be here instead:
