I have 2 great danes one is older (5 years). The other is 6 mos. The puppy destroys her toys in a matter of minutes. I have bought everything from cheap to expensive toys. It doesnt matter what they are hard plastic, rope, or stuffed she goes destroys them in minutes. I was wondering if anyone had good suggestions on what to buy her!! I tried kongs but she has no interest in them (even stuffed with food.)
I have 3 Newfs ( 8, 9 and 11 months old...all still pups!), and have the same problem. My solution is to buy in bulk. I will buy the 88 cent toys at Wal-Mart by the dozen, they last surprisingly well. I also make my own toys out of old socks and tennis balls, old ripped towels (just knotted like some fabric bones are), maybe take a rope from one toy that's been chewed and piece it together with another. Also, I get "hand-me-down" stuffed animals from my family/friends...I remove the eyes and anything they can choke on, sew them back up, and let them have at it.
My danes ignore the tuff toys, like the Kongs. They seem to prefer chewing holes in the walls while I'm at work. LOL!!! Seriously, I don't know what to tell you because I still haven't figured it out. SORRY!
lol i thought I was the only that had a dane chew a hole in the wall! A couple of years ago someone knocked a hole in the wall. My husband patched it. Well I had her locked in the room while company was visiting for 20 mins. She tore the patch off the wall and made the hole even bigger! How she got it off I'll never know since it was flush with the dry wall you had to look real close to even see it was there!
