I went to Tractor Supply and as I was in the dog toy aisle, a sales person asked if I could use some help. I said I needed something to defeat a black lab. She giggled, said she was a dog trainer and pointed out the Kong brand, but not the red or blue, the black for "power chewers". https://www.kongcompany.com/products/for-dogs/rubber-toys/extreme-rubber-toys/kong-extreme/ She said that the dog would get bored and walk away. I looked at her skeptically thinking about the 10.00 tuff dog tennis ball hide covered double ball that Elvira (Mistress of the Bark) skinned and destroyed in 2 hours spreading tennis ball type material over the entire living room the night before.

I dropped 15 bucks on it after the recommendation and sincere demeanor.

3 hours and 16 min including the p butter and pumpkin I put inside "for longer play"

So to defeat a blab, Kong isnt king.
It's boring, and your lack of creativity knows no bounds.

    As a side note. Be very careful with tennis balls. The ones made in China have fiberglass in them and can/will hurt your dogs mouth.

    Any decent sized dog is a five man demolition team, that does not surprise me.
    Good dog name, but now I have an Oak Ridge Boys song stuck in my head

    I give my chocolate lab shed antlers. They don't defeat her, but she'll chew on them for hours. And they last for weeks.

    She picks up sheds, they go a while, but not weeks.

    I have found only 2 things that manage to last around my Labs for any period of time... bowling balls (they will pop soccer and basketballs) and cow femurs. The femurs aren't invincible, but they last a long time. The bowling balls have stood the test of time because they are too big and hard for them to get their mouths around-- they wind up pushing them around the house-- leaving a wake of destruction.

    Before you give a dog a bowling ball have the holes filled first ... a bowling center will do it for about $10. A coworker bragged about his Belgium Malis and their bowling ball until they "found" the finger holes and broke some of their teeth off.

    Nice. I will keep that in mind. Those don't come out very often just because of the damage they do to out toes.

    Elk sheds and the ball joint off a cow femur. The sheds don't last as long but they don't leave much residue.

    So you're saying you don't let the dogs play with your big balls except on special occasions?

    I wonder if his balls are black or blue or even multicolored? Didn't you sleep with him Chris? You probably know.

    I had a miniature dachshund that destroyed everything he could get. Extra sturdy, rip resistant, long lasting dog toys....sometimes in minutes! Gutted most all them and loved hunting/chasing squirrels. neurotic little guy
