I'm curious about the Boxers chewing tendencies. I know it's a general question and all dogs are different, but I was wondering if they do better with stuffy type toys or the harder nylabone type of chew toys? Which type lasts longer?
Fiona looooooooooooovvvvvvvvvvveeeeeeessssssssss her stuffed squeeker toys....but the stuffing always ends up pulled out sooner or later. She has many of "hard toys". She loves her Kong but I think it is because she relates that to peanut butter. Otherwise, when she goes to the basket it is usually a softie she picks first so therefore her hard toys last longer because she does not play with them as often.
Chloe is pretty good with her toys and has only destroyed a few since we had her. She has both, stuffy fleece ones and the harder ones, and her favortie one that we got her when she was 9 weeks old is a fleece one and she still has it and it's been almost 3 years.
Kane loves his chicken -- still carrying it everywhere he goes. He squeeks it and then makes little whimpering sounds. He always goes and gets it when he wants to go out. Trouble is he wants to bring the chicken outside with him, and he looks like such a goof with the chicken in his mouth. He also loves the fleece toys and has yet to destroy anything. Sophie loves anything that squeaks. Bought them the mallard yesterday and a different type of squeeky chicken (Harriett). Kane takes all his favorites and hides them under the pillows so Sophie can't have them. He's such a brat.
Donner is good with either type of toy. Just wanted to throw my 2 cents in on furry, squeaky toys though- We ended up putting away the fur squeaks, we have several cats and Donner had a stage of pouncing on them (turns out they sound/feel? just like a squeaky toy ) we were afraid as he got bigger that someone was going to be seriously hurt. After those toys were put away the kitty pouncing decreased right away.
Hope this isn't too far off the topic to include here.
Definitely soft stuffed toys are a favorite around here. Samson's front teeth are just about gone, so he's partial to the real soft toys...He has never liked the nylabones at all until I started buying the edible ones, oh he loves those! Angel likes them all, it depends on her mood, but she is hard on toys...That's why I had to buy so many new ones
Jaxon has a puppy nylabone and loves it. He also has tons of doggie tennis balls and knotted rope type toys. He plays fetch a lot and will occasionally bring a knotted rope, but not too often. He also likes his booda.
