That's where they do all their hard-core chewing. But give a dog the appropriately-sized, round, hollow ball made of super-durable Orbee-Tuff® and they can chew for hours - because they cannot get it to the back of their jaws. If you have a very aggressive chewer (chews through tires, deck- posts and bricks - all of which we have heard) stick with the perfectly round shaped toys! Be sure to buy appropriately sized toys for your dog. Not only will this ensure a longer-lasting toy, but it will keep your buddy safe from potential choking. Remember to always supervise your dog’s play and immediately remove any toys at the first sign of damage. Check out www.planetdog.com for more information.

The unique properties of plastics arise because of the weight of the molecules which are held together by chemical (covalent) bonds between the atoms. Degradation is the result of lowered molecular weight due to breakage of carbon bonds in each molecule and a loss of mechanical properties. Oxygen initiates the degradation. And other factors such as ultraviolet light, heat and film stress accelerate the process.
