My female Díma loves to play and her toy's usually dont live a very long live :shocked:
There was this one rubber toy who almost made it, lived for two years.
It was her favorite and she played with it everyday.

She has never touch anything at our home like the shoes or sofas or anything like that but if we hand it to her to play with it is a goner.

If you have destroyer dog like her what is the longest lasting toy you have.

here is a video of her and one of her toys that lived for 15 minuets.

And one thing when I buy a new toy I ask for a very strong toy that will survive a long time. Well so fara only one has last more then a week.

We have two destructors (I mean dobermans) and they have chewed through our stairs' carpet... our eliptical bench etc. and I would have to say the toys that lasted the longest were:
-Extreme kongs
-aqua balls http://www.amazon.com/Huck-Indestructible-Ball-Dog-Toy/dp/B000AAAN70
-square ball http://www.ems.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3830505

to stimulate some brain activity:
- buster cube http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0002ZFMX8?tag=wwwthepuppydo-20&camp=14573&creative=327641&linkCode=as1&creativeASIN=B0002ZFMX8&adid=12W4Q0103QA57JHNH2F4&
- tug-a-jug http://www.animalbehaviorassociates.com/toys-tug-a-jug.htm

and softer toys:
- tuffy's http://www.vipproducts.com/retail/files/index.php?cPath=27

most of them you can find on amazon etc. whatever the cheapest.
:biggrin: hope this helps

Kong toys seem to last longer than anything else with the barn dogs. However, I've been pleasantly surprised by the durability of a goofy toy my husband bought for them. It's called Hurl a Squirrel. It's a circle of nylon rope with a toy flying squirrel in the middle. You are supposed to throw it like a frisbee. The dogs love to have tug of war contests with it. So far none of them have bothered to chew the squirrel out of the middle, which has really surprised me. They just hang onto the rope part and drag each other around.
TheQueen is a toy destroyer (terrier mix). With soft toys, she rips out their guts and squeakers out then plays with their limp bodies. She's weird. (I'm going to start buying her the ones without stuffing, to eliminate the mess!)

Our longest lasting toys have been a rubber Gumby (that no one plays with, hence the long lasting), any kind of rope toy (used only for tug of war, not for chewing), tennis balls, oh, and all of them have kongs that are still alive.

TQ's favorite toys are the ones that resemble the dead birds. She is a wanna-be bird dog. Minus that she would never come back!
My IGs and Whippet don't destroy ANY toys, but Vinnie is another story!! LOL. He will destroy ANY stuffed toy. The best things we have around here are Hollee Rollers and Kongs. Love them both!!
Try planet dog toys
I bought Enzo a orbee ball and he loves it they have a variety of toys on the website.

here is a video of her and one of her toys that lived for 15 minuets.
Omg she killed it! LOL! I was giggling like mad when I was watching this, that was SO funny! Nyla bones and kongs seem to last long, but my dog loses interest in something she can't destroy. She's the same way about not killing anything that's not a toy, so I just buy clearance toys for her at my work.
She was so enthusiastic that she had to come up for air once. That's vigorous play.
