Chew toys for all ages:
The other type of chew toy is a more general toy, that is meant to please dogs of all ages.
Often, if a Pomeranian puppy has found that his teething toys met his needs, and that chewing on them was enjoyable, wanting something to chew on can carry over to his adult years.
This is a good thing, since he will already have the habit of looking to his toys for his chewing urges (and not your shoes or other belongings).
Adult dogs will also chew just because it feels good to work their jaws, and it is generally a good way for canines to pass the time. Though there is much more needed, it is one
aspect of taking care of the teeth.
You'll want some sturdy chew toys that have some pleasing aspects or elements that make them fun.
And while Pomeranians are not known for completely shredding apart toys, some are relatively strong chewers, and for that you will want to look to 'indestructible' dog toys that can really stand up to sharp teeth and enthusiastic play.
One problem that you may have encountered in regard to finding indestructible toys for your Pom, is that many are great, but are sized much too large for this toy breed dog. Fortunately, there are a couple that are rather small, but exceptionally durable.
Recommended chew toys:
For basic chew toys, there are a few terrific ones that stand out.
One is the Crinkle Monkey by ZippyPaws. (This was one of our prizes for the Halloween Contest, 2016). These come in size small, and are still a good sized toy, but the arms and legs are the parts that fit into a Pom's mouth for lots of chewing fun.
These are neat because there is crinkle paper inside the limbs. Other parts of the monkey have a squeaker and a rattle. These are well made and are very durable. ZippyPaws also makes crinkle butterflies, dragonflies, and other cute toys.
Another one that you may want to consider is Kong's low-stuffed dog toys.
These can be found in extra-small, which makes them perfect for both puppies and adult Poms that love to chew. These are very durable, and also machine washable.
Recommended toys for super strong chewers:
If your Pom's teeth are like sharp little razors, and he's known for ripping things apart (even the durable toys as mentioned above), the next step would be to move to the Hurleys and for larger Poms, the Kongs. Again, the tricky part is finding ones small enough.
The Hurley Guaranteed Tough Bone
is a good choice, since this comes in size 'mini'. It is made in America and is 100% guaranteed to stand up.
With Kongs, these are color coded and while it may look very plain, the black toys are designed for very aggressive chewers. Just about the smallest one that they have is the original Kong extreme in size small.
This is meant for dogs up to 20 lbs. and would be appropriate for Pomeranians on the large end of the weight range, 9 pounds and up.
