onyx'girl I'd be cautious of toys or anything from WM as they are probably manufactured in China.
I try to stay with toys made in USA if they are constantly in my dogs mouth. Though that is a challenge now that Cuz's are outsourced to China.

West Paw is about the only company in the US making durable dog toys.

Sp00ks We have raised two or three shepherds through the teething stage with these. Our dogs seem to love them, they last for a long time, and they are cheap. I'm not sure where to get them locally. Maybe Walmart. Ours look a little different, I don't recall the brand but they have to have the insert. Our dogs don't touch regular nylabones but love these.

My gang are good about not swallowing plastic parts (like eyes, noses, etc.) but you could just remove them if you are worried.
Here is a pic of what I mean, she just doesn't use the toy as it's intended I don't want her taking off pieces like that on the corners the bottom is bad too and that was only after maybe 30 min..lol she's only 14 weeks old. If I still had the little squirrel squeak toy I had I'd show a pic of that as well lol that poor thing only lasted about an hour haha.

Botox All good options! thank you very much for all of your input guys! I'll take a trip to the pet store, and other various places to see what I can find that fits my budget and would be sustainable

Mala The best $20 that I've spent that is still in good condition is a jolly ball!! My pup goes at it forever like no tomorrow. She'd lay and chew, grab the rope and shake the ball, and whines while doing it all! Next to that would be an elk antler. I bought 1 for $20 and it's still lasting (4 months). Something cheaper is beef bone marrow. I would have the butcher cut the big long piece up to smaller pieces and freeze them. That lasts at least a good hour of chew time and the whole piece costs about $4 over here.

Oh I definitely play with her. I just wanted to find something she liked to chew that didn't get destroyed in less than 4 hours of chew time lol. Mainly for when I go to class and she is in her crate, I was just saying that it gets expensive so finding something that was durable and cheap, or like those bones that are cheap something of that nature to keep her mind engaged for a while after I leave.

gurlonfire2004 My puppy is not a destroyer (yet). She has stuffed toys and hasn't taken the stuffing out.

If your pup can bite off pieces of kong, then I think a marrow bone would be better, like other posters suggested. You can fill it up like a Kong once the marrow is gone.

I gave my puppy a freeze dried buffalo lung steak. She loved that, but it didn't last too long.

She likes the puppybone Nylabones. She has chewed off tiny pieces of those. She doesn't like the solid white one. It is a little bit harder.

I have also given her frozen washcloths soaked in chicken broth. She loved it the first time, but hasn't been too interested since. (I've given it to her a total of 3 times.)

My puppy is in her kennel from 7 am to about 4 pm. She does get some time out when my brother and mother take lunch breaks, but I think the amount of time she is out varies. When I leave her in the morning, I give her 2 large puppy Kongs filled with food, a Nylabone, and a stuffed toy (She hasn't destroyed any, so I am not worried about her eating it. If she does start destroying toys, then I won't leave a toy like that in there anymore.)

I would think that if you exercise your puppy really well before you leave, she would sleep most of the time that you were gone-if you weren't gone more than 2 hours at a time.
