Default Safe toys for a boxer

Hey all, have a question that I was hoping others might have some insight. Our boxer is an aggressive chewer and can destroy even the toughest of toys. He's actually been able to work a knot a rope toy loose and was able to get to the squeaker of a Tough Toy (10 rating) in about 30 minutes. As a result, he's turned his chewing to plants and drip lines and trees in the backyard.

Any recommendations on what we can use to help this urge? I fear Nylabones and rawhide chews and some of the other toys I hear can damage teeth. Anyone have luck with antlers or the bully sticks (or whatever fun name they try to call a bull penis)? Feel like those could be just as bad of not worse than the others. Thanks!

Duke loved bully bones! But I found it took him mere seconds to get done one big one.. Ending up with a canon butt... But most people here like giving their dogs bully bones, safer than a rawhide.

What about a jolly ball or the kong toys? Duke has a jolly ball he plays only outside with he swings that thing around like its nobody's business!

Roxie lives for bully sticks. And they are totally safe ! They can get quite pricey though, so I wouldn't use those for every day use.

Any Cuz toys have proven pretty good for us. With no stuffing or squeaker, she wasn't as interested in destroying them!
And definitely agree with the Jolly Ball. Roxie's has lasted through 2 years of intense play!

We had the Kong version of the Jolly ball and he found a way to gnaw the handle off haha. I'll try the Jolly ball.

Kong toys do seem to work well, had a lot of luck with them so far but he tends to get bored quickly.

Welcome to BF. Thank goodness our boxer isn't all that aggressive when chewing at least not anymore. He can shred rope toys and basically we don't use those anymore because we would find the strings in his poo and don't want them balling up in his intestines. We have a ball made by JW with a hard plastic bone thru it, it held up pretty well. We have also used himalayan chews, those keep him busy. I have recently bought him a bully stick but haven't tried it yet. I do like these bones I get at petsmart with a filler in it, either bacon cheese, yogurt , they seem to last and when the filler is gone I crush up some of his kibble mix it with a little plain yogurt and freeze it then he can have at it again. He also just like it even when its empty. It a femur bone. I think made Dentleys,

The toy Mack likes the most is one that I made with a plastic ball, jingle bells, and a microfiber towel.

It looks like a rag doll, it makes noise, and he loves it.

Emmett doesn't destroy toys. Only his bed.

Sounds like Emmett might get some tough love. We took Kai's away and he had to sleep not he plastic try of his crate for awhile. Then we went to a kong crate bed that last a year and basically started to fall apart I guess from washing. Now we have a primo crate pad with tie downs and its good to go and easy to keep clean. Next dog will also get a primo first!.
