I'm pretty sure that the poster said they are tugging with the dog .. not turning them loose with it. One thing that my dog LOVES is a Kong Squeez stick. Found it at Academy for less than $10 and it's his favorite. It has a recessed squeaky and he hasn't mangled it at all. It's also softer so his teeth are probably safe.
