Dachshunds love their toys. And they love destroying them too! So when we asked our I Love My Dachshund Facebook community which toys, we got hundreds of responses. Below we’ll share a handful of the most popular suggestions on best toys for dachshunds.

The best thing we have found for our massive chewer is Kong products. She cannot tear them up no matter how much she tries. The one in the middle with blue face is 6 mos old. Squeaker is broken but she cannot shred the body try as she does. Kong is very much worth the price!

Fenway’s good for a Kong Knots. He’s got a fox and we’re only on the third generation. Guys, he’s 15. There’s no hope.

My Maggie destroyed every toy. I took a long sock tied a knot in the middle. She played with it for months without tearing it up. She was running wild in the house one day; she picked up my sock in the excitement. She realized quickly it wasn’t hers and spit it out. She picked hers up and kept playing.

This used to have a rope in it which she immediately chewed out but for 8 years this has been her favorite toy. Because of its shape when it’s thrown it goes in all directions. She loves it!

If mine can’t destroy the squeaker or disembowel the toy, they don’t want it. That said the Hartz Dura Play toys actually last quite awhile.
