The druidhound likes to chew.

A lot.

He's well trained, so he knows not to chew shoes, clothes, furniture, etc. but when we give him a chew toy, he chews, and chews, and chews...

The toys don't last long.

A friend who is associated with the Melbourne Zoo recommended a company that make chew toys for zoos. Super tough, and designed to keep lions and tigers entertained through those long boring years of captivity.

So we got one, and gave it to the druidhound for xmas.

It lasted 3 days.

The druidhound likes to chew.

A lot.

____ Cocoa, the Siberian is in the same class, yesterday the Mrs. bought her a chew toy, within the hour I was picking up chew toy stuffing. We have found that hard elastic (rubber like) toys hold up the best. She even skinned the neighbors soccer ball.

I have a very young labrador that loves to chew.

I let him chew on my firewood, Saves me the trouble of having to find kindling for the fireplace. Takes him about a day to turn a split log for the fireplace into kindling for the fireplace.

He has also twice, chewed though a 2 by four to escape his playroom in the basement 8 which is walled off on one side by a 1 meter high wall I built.

My mom had a young and anxious golden retriever that chew up the back seat of her van. I installed a metal barrier to keep him in the back. He broke through that in minutes, and proceeded to chew the seats again.

Soon after, he was transferred to new owners who could handle him. And soon after that, my mom found her perfect gentle golden.

The dog will still destroy it, but rope isn't too expensive and you can always make another.

I had a ginormous black lab when I was a kid. When he was a puppy, he ate a picnic table, the seats off several bicycles, and part of the screen door on the back porch.

He also ate his chew toys. And his bed.

They do grow out of it, though. Once his adult teeth were in, he was content with rawhide. And the occasional dog bed.
