Looking for dog toys that last a really long time? Here are some just in time for the holidays.

A lot of the appeal behind chew toys for dogs is a squeak. Often, very active dogs will destroy the squeaker, which destroys their interest in the toy, as well.

Instead, try out this seal, which has several squeakers. The best part? This toy does not include any extra stuffing, so when your dog inevitably rips it to shreds, stuffing won’t pose a threat.

You can also get it in a variety of animals, like the walrus or alligator. What’s not to love?
