Now that we have Callie, he and Sophie love playing tug of war every morning. I need some brands that will hold up to two uber strong doggies. I'm thinking maybe a squeaky stuffed bulletproof vest. I ordered the Kong Ballistic ring to see how long it lasts. Any other suggestions?

Some of these are tough: http://www.helpingudders.com/udder_tugs.aspx

Also Tuffy's, Chewbar, Katies Bumpers Sqwuggies, West Paw Design

Some of those are not meant for a dog to chew on when unsupervised though.

Orbee-Tuff® Orbee Ball

Orbee-Tuff® RecycleBALL® 5/5

note they also have several rated 4/5
