Best Nylabone Dog Toys: What are they?
Nylabones are the most popular brand of dog toys in the world. They have been around since 1982 and were originally manufactured by a company called Litter Box Products (LBP). In 2001, LBP was acquired by a new company named Nylon Dog Treats. Since then, there has been a major change in the product line up.
The first generation of nylabone products consisted of a variety of different types of plastic pellets with various colors. These were not only used for their color but also because they had a low melting point which made them easy to work with. However, these toys didn’t last very long before breaking down into small pieces and falling apart. For this reason, the second generation of nylabone toys included some sort of durable material such as rubber or metal instead.
Since the third generation of nylabone products were designed to last longer than previous generations, they were given a slightly different design. Instead of using plastic pellets, these toys now use a combination of other materials such as wood chips and nylon fibers. While these materials may seem like they would make the toy stronger, it actually makes them less durable. Because of this fact, many nylabone toys have broken down over time due to normal wear and tear from chewing and tearing.
While buying a nylabone may prolong the life of the toy for your dog, it still probably won’t last as long as you want it to.
What can you do if you are a dog owner that wants to buy something for your four-legged friend that won’t break down immediately?
Well, there is a new generation of nylabones made from 100% pure virgin beef trachea.
