Everyday Adventures in Havachon Heaven

The Good, Crazy, & Adorable Life of One Havachon Puppy

Havachon Philosophy: Leave No Toy Unmauled

on August 16, 2010

These razor-sharp teeth of Daisy’s are costing us a small fortune in dog toys! In one month she totally destroyed a NylaBone, which took our large dog months to get through. I guess small dogs must have sharper teeth than large ones, because I recall our large dog having BIG teeth but they didn’t tear through toys like razor wire.

In the 2-1/2 months we’ve had her, Daisy has also destroyed:

Toys are my LIFE! 🙂

~ Her favorite stuffed squeaky giraffe

~ A “barbell” made specifically to withstand sharp puppy teeth (uh-huh…)

~ A “strong” twisted denta-rope recommended by someone who also has a small dog with sharp teeth (apparently he doesn’t know how sharp teeth can really be!)

~ A tennis ball (she pulled all the fuzz off it with her tiny front teeth, working at it intensely as if it was a required exercise)

~ A teething bone with 3 different textures for teeth and gums (that was supposed to be “tough” but only lasted a whole 3 weeks)

~ A squeaky chicken (she pulled the stopper and then the squeaker out, essentially gutting the poor thing)

…and three or four more that I can’t remember now, they went into the trash SO fast!

We just bought a Tuffie Toy, which is supposed to have 9 different “security layers” (our phrase, not theirs!) and they’ve supposedly been tested on tigers. Well, tigers have HUGE teeth and powerful jaws, but I don’t know if their teeth are like razors. We’ll see what happens when we give it to her, as soon as she destroys her new favorite toy….a squeaky, squishy platypus. The tail’s already gone, so it won’t be long now…. 😦

    Wow, that’s a lot of toys! I hope these new ones last longer!

    Have you tried a Kong chewing toy? It is supposed to last much longer, as its made of durable rubber. Be sure to get the black edition though, the red one could be not enough if your little cutie can destroy a nylabone!!

      We’ve tried Kongs and Level 9 Tuffy toys – she’s destroyed them all. Black edition Kong only took her 30 minutes. So far Nylabones specifically made for extreme chewing has worked best – not perfect, but at least it lasts a couple of weeks! Thanks for your comment and for visiting!
