    Our dog chewed up and destroyed (in mere seconds) our four year old sons self made, self wrapped, Christmas present to dear mom & dad. It was a popsicle stick frame with an ever so sweet picture of him in the middle. Note: lots of glue and glitter and stickers were adorning the said popsicle stick frame. Broke his heart. BIG alligator tears. We spent an hour piecing it back together, wrapping paper and all!

    Let’s see…worst thing Sienna ever gnawed on was a gorgeous jacket I had that I loved so much. I has stupidly left a small doggie treat in the pocket and in only about 5 minutes before I got to her, she had gnawed her way through the outside of the pocket to get the treat. the jacket was ruined.

    I could not get angry at her….it was my fault. Would love to win this toy for her because she’s my baby and I love her more than words can say. Even if she did ruin my favorite jacket.

    I was very lucky when I got my dog Welker. She was already full grown and out of her eating everything habit… Never have been so fortunate before. So, too keep with current times, the worst thing she has ever chewed on was my boyfriend’s bathroom carpet. I still don’t know why she did that… That and my peanut butter sandwiches.

    My wonderful adopted silky terrier LOVES to explore…so much he explored to the kitchen, stood up on his hind legs, and chewed right through the trashbag in the middle of the night, consuming everything in it…I am talking shrimp tails, cheesecake slices, pasta, the whole shabang. I came upstairs in the morning to trash everywhere…thank goodness he was totally ok, it seems he has a stomach of steel!
    I am always looking for a new chew toy that keeps his terrier personality satisfied…I have yet to find a great one :(

    My mom’s dog chewed up the entire base of her kitchen table and all four chairs! She tried spraying them with bitter apple, cayenne pepper, and other products….nothing worked! It was like condiments to the dog!!

    The worst thing my dog has chewed has been my unmentionables. Thankfully, he has since quit that habit!

    Hi Tina! The worst thing my dog has ever gnawed on was my dining room table and chairs. When our adorable little Frenchie pup was teething, she gnawed on ever single leg of our dining room table’s 6 chairs–and in the exact same spot for each one. She didn’t stop there either. She made a “dent” around the table in each of those 4 legs as well.
    PUPPIES :)

    My boxer, Bailey would love this toy. My husband and are patents to one year Old twins, so poor Bailey doesn’t get as much attention as she used to. This would really brighten her day!

    The worst thing that my little Yorkie Elizabeth ever chewed on was the better part of a chocolate birthday cake!! She somehow climbed up onto the dining room table and right up onto the cake plate into the chocolate cake! She had NEVER gotten up onto the table before and we had no idea that this could be a problem. Needless to say we had to call the local vet and monitor her all night long for fear that she had eaten more chocolate than was safe for her size. YIKES!!!!

    my pug chewed a used tampon that my male roomates girlfriend left in the trash can! That was not a fun phone call to the vet.

    I had a golden retriever & a saint bernard at the same time when I was in high school – two BIG dogs (and one slobber-er…). Anyhow, one of them chewed up my favorite sandals…crushed! I don’t have a dog right now, but I’d love to give that toy to a friend’s yellow lab :)

    When she was a puppy, my Cocoa gnawed on the handle of our recliner couch … and my grandma’s rocking chair. She was a wood chewer, for sure!

    Unfortunately, my black lab Nova has really bad allergies so we have to keep chew toys around at all times to keep her from gnawing on herself!

    Our black lab loves what’s called a “bully stick”… I asked my dad what it was since the only ingredient is “beef pizzle”, which he explained is the bone of a bull penis. We’re supposed to take the bones away when they get too short because it’s not healthy for the dog to swallow them whole, and there goes Grady swallowing it in one big gulp. We had to take him to the emergency room and everything, but he ended up being okay. It goes down as the day Grady ate a bull penis.

    I have two dogs – one who has chewed on nothing and one who has chewed on everything! The worst thing the bad dog chewed on was the sofa. There is nothing worse then coming home and seeing the sofa everywhere! Thank goodness she’s out of the puppy stage!!

    Thankfully my 10 month old lab, Kali, hasn’t chewed any furniture, clothes, or misc. items that have been left around the house. However, she has chewed so many sticks while playing outside she got a small blockage and spent a few days at the vet. Since then we have been trying to find toys that can hold up to Kali’s incessant need to chew and chew and chew. Kongs have been destroyed, most hard rubber bones she can split in half, and a rope or anything remotely soft is there and gone within minutes. This sounds like the perfect combination of a hard chew to and a treat that could keep my energetic puppy occupied! Her big sister (my 6 yr. old lab Izzy) would appreciate the piece & quite of not being pestered :)

    My dog would love this! He is a fan of treats that he can sit & chew for a while… they are his favorite! Sometimes if he doesn’t finish them he “buries” them in the couch or our bed, so cute!

    One day, I left my miniature pinscher, Bella, free to roam while I got ready for work. When I didn’t see her for a while, I went to see what she was up to. She unraveled an entire roll of toilet paper and chewed it all in to little, tiny pieces for me to clean up all over the house!

    The worst thing my darling Niko gnawed on was a pile of deer poop! It was so gross! I’d take a whole bunch of chewed socks over that scene any day!

    My dog Jackson is a black lab and although I know it’s the “retriever” in him, he constantly checks out the small wicker trash basket that I have in bedroom and he especially loves to demolish tags that come off of clothes. No matter where he is, if he hears it hit the basket, he’s there waiting to see what he can chew up.

    It is a toss up between two things, a brand new pair of shoes that I never to got wear or the arm of my glasses so now a piece of sharp metal sticks out and i have to be careful putting them on so I don’t stab myself.

    My family’s dog manages to destroy anything and everything: remote controls, very expensive crepe spatulas from Williams Sonoma, and makes confetti out of cardboard boxes. My brother may have named him Griffin, but I call Stinkers because he peed on me as a puppy. Despite that, I still love him more than anything. Would love to share this bacon treat with my stinky dog.

    I wouldn’t necessarily say Coco gnaws, but she likes to go into the litter box and eat our cat’s poop (and we have three of them!). It doesn’t happen ALL the time, but I think she does it when she’s not getting her way…which is almost NEVER! She’s sooooo spoiled, but that’s fine, cuz we love her!

    A couple of weeks ago we took our two dogs, Briscoe and Tucker, to an event raising money for an animal rescue that we volunteer with. The event was held at a doggie daycare so the floors are that textured rubber. When we walked in there were about a hundred tennis balls all over the play area and enough parents to throw balls that Briscoe was thrilled. He ran, non stop and full speed for 3 hours. As we left I noticed he was walking funny and when we got home I realized that he basically ran the pads off his feet. I didn’t want him to lick his paws and I didn’t want him to be exposed to the super cold/snow covered patio when he went outside so I put his boots on him. He wore them successfully for a couple of days and then I came home and realized that he had eaten them. Both of them. I’m still waiting for them to come out. :(

    One day while I was at the office for a new job our other dog, Tucker, decided that he had enough of his house so he broke out. He apparently tore around the house for awhile finally ending up in the master bathroom where he found a bottle of pain killers my dentist had prescribed. My husband (who rarely deals with the vet care) came home first and found him and rushed him to the animal ER (after a panicked call to me, the vet and the animal poison control – which really does exist). Tucker got to spend a night at the animal ER being monitored and ended up being fine. Now I walk him 4-5 times per week to try to tire him out so much that he doesn’t do stuff like that.

    Our Boxer chewed the center out of a chair cushion, it looked like a big donut when he was done.
