Default A good chew toy?

Arthur has been in destroying mode lately and has tore up crayons, some wood letters that I had painted, and a couple of wrestling figures. He has a rawhide bone but doesn't seem interested in it except for carrying it around and burying it somewhere in the house.

So my question is...does anyone have any good suggestions for a chew toy/treat for a Basset? I want something that's going to keep him happy and occupied!

Hard femur bones with fillings? They last forever and I just need to add the fillings ( peanut butter,liver) once they are done. All the other chew toys or squeak toys do not last more than a day or two in our house.

We use the hard femur bones and they don't care if it is filled. Also the kong toys and a plastic water bottle in an old sock tied at the top.

Oh, I could see Arthur liking the water bottle as he loves things that make noise (he ADORES his squeaky toys!).

I thought about those cornstarch bones as our Beagle loved it when he was still with us.

We like the squeaky toys, the louder the better!!!!! We had an old hose pipe so we cut a bit of length off it, about 2 metres, he drags it around everywhere, goes crazy when I blow it like trumpet haha x

Both of mine love raw hides (I don't get the "meat" coated ones as they make an awful mess) and Kongs filled with peanut butter or pumpkin pie filling.

Ellie has also just discovered some new "fun" chew toys.... my ponytail and daddy's underpants... she aerated them for him! (both of these new "toys" will stop asap!)

UGH! Tonight she is especially Frisky... tormenting anything and everything... ahh, the nature of a puppy!

Yes, Arthur enjoys the under garments as well! I have learned to keep that stuff from him as I can't afford to keep replacing that stuff. My husband, however, has not got the hint and Arthur keeps destroying his. What is it with dogs and gross stuff? EW! LOL
