1. Petstages: Dogwood Real Wood Chew Toy
This dogwood chew toy is one of the best dog toys for pit bulls. Not only is it fairly durable (lasts about a month give or take), it is a great alternative to sticks and any furniture that is made from wood as well.
The sizes range from petite (15lbs) to large (50+lbs) and have a length of 4″ up to 8″ respectively. This toy is highly recommended for all types of dogs, but the larger size is especially good for Pit Bulls.
2. Mary & Kate Pets Dog Rope
This is one of the best dog toys for Pit Bulls who like interactive playtime. Mary & Kate Pets have designed a double rope with a nice silicone handle (XXL size) that holds up well and weighs nearly a pound. For the super-shredders who may find this toy a nice chew challenge, the company also offers a 100% customer satisfaction guarantee that will replace any rope that is destroyed.
3. Bull Fit – Dog Bite Tug of War
This is one of the best dog toys for pit bulls as it can withstand dogs up to 200lbs. This tug of war toy is intended more for interactive use and is not recommended to use as a solo chew toy or else the durability decreases.
The fire hose material holds up fairly well to general rough and tumbles play. Additionally, the company will replace a toy if it is damaged. The intended use is for working dogs (e.g. Police K-9, Military dogs, etc), which ensures the quality is pretty high.
4. Oneisall Durable Chew Toy Bone
Oneisall has come out with a nice chew toy that is under-recognized due to it not being a name brand.
This neon green chew toy comes in 3 sizes (S, M, L) and is recommended for dogs from <15lbs to 60+. The medium size is recommended for Pit Bulls in the product description and ‘fits’ size 15 – 60lbs.
Additionally, given the hard nature of this toy, it is beneficial for a dog’s oral hygiene. The manufactured, bite resistant design also stands up moderately well against new puppy teeth.
5. TufToys Chew Ring
This chew ring is dynamic and bends in surprising ways to make for an interactive playtime. The flexible material aims to counter any tooth damage and resists shredding.
This is one of the best dog toys for pit bulls because it is difficult to shred. As an added bonus, this toy floats and it helps to clean your dog’s teeth while he/she plays.
6. CZ Grain Deer Antler Chew Toy
Selected from organic farm fields, these deer antlers are a nice alternative to chew bones. Not only do they tend to last longer, they are high in nutrients and odor free. Pit Bulls may enjoy any of the three sizes (M, L, Jumbo), although the latter is good for any dog 45+lbs.
7. iHeartDogs Agrichew Chew Toy
While last on this list, this clover-shaped chew toy is still one of the best chew toys for Pit Bulls. The most unique feature of this toy is that there is a hole in the center that you can fill with a treat (e.g. peanut butter). It is also the only toy that is FDA and RoHS compliant, according to the ads.
This toy makes a good fetch toy due to its unpredictable bounce. As an added bonus, proceeds from each purchase go to an animal shelter.
Finding the best dog toys for Pit Bulls does not need to have a large time or money investment. Knowing the kinds of toys that your dog(s) want is a great first step. After that, it’s more a matter of narrowing down how well these kinds of toys last and how safe they are for your furry friend. Use this list as a starting point, then sit back and watch your Pit Bull play happily.
