If you're looking for a good chew toy, consider this - a dog's jaw can exert over 200 pounds per square inch. Chew toys should be durable to withstand daily abuse. Pick something that is appropriate for the bite strength of your dog.
Beyond durability, pick a chew toy that will benefit your dog in more ways than one. You can choose from chew toys that help keep teeth clean and free of tartar, chew toys to hold treats and keep your canine entertained, and interactive chew toys with ropes that let you turn chewing into playtime with your pooch.
