You get some new tough dog toys, and your dog loves them. But within minutes, stuffing is everywhere, the squeakers extracted, and your dog has destroyed $20 worth of new toys. We all know this situation far too well. Maybe you perform reconstructive surgery on the toy by duct taping it, but that only lasts a short period before your dog tears it to shreds all over again. So much for tough. Quit wasting your money on toys that barely last five minutes and start buying dog toys designed for heavy chewers.
We chose our dog toy subscription for heavy chewers winners based on price, number of products, and customization options.
Once you place your Bullymake order, they ship a themed box the next business day. After that, you’ll receive a package every 30 days. You can choose between toys and treats or a toy-only box. You can also reach out to customer service to change the frequency of deliveries. So instead of receiving a box monthly, you could ask to receive one every other month, once a quarter, etc. You are also able to change the date you receive the boxes.
For example, Michelle, the co-founder of Canine Journal, signed up and received her first box for Barley at the end of November. But sadly, it was Thanksgiving-themed, and turkey day was over. While Barley didn’t discriminate against the turkey leg chew toy, Michelle was a little sad that he didn’t have Christmas-themed toys to enjoy. So she emailed customer service, and they promptly changed the date for future boxes to ship on the first of the month instead. Now they have more time to enjoy the new month’s theme.
Our Personal Experience With Bullymake
When we adopted Barley (photo above), we quickly discovered that he LOVES to chew! We tried store-bought toys, but he destroyed every one. In our search for a long-term solution, we researched Super Chewer and Bullymake boxes.
We tried both out, but we chose Bullymake because they offer a toy-only box at the same price. We can buy treats anywhere, but toys are our primary issue (and a rapidly growing expense!). Four new Bullymake toys each month is the perfect solution for Barley.– Michelle S., Co-Founder of Canine Journal
Bullymake has four types of toys: nylon, rubber, rope, and ballistic. Depending on your dog’s toy and play preference, one or two styles may be a better fit. See some of the toys and treats you can expect to receive from Bullymake in the short video below.
We think Bullymake offers the best dog subscription box for heavy chewers. They have a toy-only option, competitive prices, you can choose the toy materials your dog likes best, and you can change the delivery frequency.

Each Super Chewer box from Barkbox includes more than $45 worth of toys and treats. The first box ships immediately, and all following boxes ship on the 15th of every month. Boxes have fun themes like The Knights of the Hound Table, Paradise Unleashes, and Age of the Furaoh. And if a toy isn’t tough enough for your super chewer, Barkbox will replace it for free, no questions asked.
Our Personal Experience With Super Chewer Barkbox
My power chewing dog especially loved the bouncy rubber carrot that arrived for Thanksgiving! It smelled like almonds, and while he quickly chewed off the “stems,” he still loves chasing the bouncing carrot all over the house, even months later.– Michelle S., Co-Founder of Canine Journal
Customer service is quick to help via text, live chat, and email. And if your dog isn’t a super chewer, Barkbox also has a standard box option, which you can learn more about in our Barkbox review. Even though Barkbox isn’t our #1 pick, we still think it’s highly reputable, and it’s even slightly less than Bullymake when you sign up for the 12-month subscription. We like their 100% satisfaction guarantee and that they cater to allergies.
The only reason we didn’t select Barkbox’s Super Chewer as #1 is that you can’t choose the toy materials or change the frequency of boxes delivered. You will also have to request a toy-only option directly — they don’t offer it during sign-up. If these aren’t deal breakers for you, we think the Super Chewer box could be an ideal pick for your pup.

Each box includes two tough and fluff-free toys, two full-sized bags of treats made in the USA or Canada, and two all-natural meaty chews. You can reach out to Barkbox’s customer service for a toy-only option, but we’re unsure if the price changes for those boxes.

The popular dog toy manufacturer Kong also offers a monthly box subscription that is primarily for heavy chewers. Each box contains three Kong toys and three Kong treats, customized based on your dog’s profile (size, age, chewing habits, behavioral and health issues, etc.). It also includes an easy-to-make recipe and personality/training tips.
The Kong Box is a fantastic deal — you can save up to $50 by ordering the box rather than purchasing each item individually. And it’s a helpful way to stay stocked up on toys and treats.
Our Personal Experience With Kong Box
I received a Kong Box in exchange for an unbiased review. I got the medium-sized dog box for my super chewer. My Kong box was amazing. It included the original Classic Kong toy, the Kong Goodie Bone, and the Kong Wil Knots teddy bear toy, a sturdy plush toy with a squeaker inside (all three have held up over weeks for my chewing champion). It also came with three different treats to fit in the Kong toys — medium-sized Kong bites, a tube of a squeezable sweet potato treat to put in the Kong original and Kong bone, and a chicken-flavored treat you insert into the bottom of the Kong classic toy. Additionally, they included an easy summer picnic recipe card and a card with tips to deal with boredom (one of my dog’s issues). My dog was crazy about all of them. When I put the insertable treat in the classic Kong toy, he was occupied for a good hour with it. It’s well worth the value for what you get in a Kong Box.– Sally, Canine Journal

If you’d rather skip the subscription boxes and purchase toys individually for your heavy chewer, consider these indestructible dog toys. These toys have some of the best reviews from pet parents with super chewers.Tagged With: Chewing, Comparison, Subscription
