It seems now that everytime i give Zoey a kong to chew on she EATS it in a matter of minutes! Im tlaking the XXL black kongs that were made for pitbulls! I dont give her anything else to chew on as they are not strong enough. Should I just stop giving them to her? If I do she will not have anything to chew on. I give them to her at night so she wont attempt to eat the bars or her bedding. I am out of options!

edited to say:
Yes we do practice NILIF with her and we have tried taking everything away from her, she is in obediance. She just seems to think that everything is food! We feed her twice a day with treats in between (about a cup and a half of food each time) She is on Innova adult right now.

Try the nylabone "Big Chews" for BIG dogs. They're shaped like giant turkey legs and bones. My mastiff mix can't destroy them and he destroys every toy!
Never make someone a priority in your life when that someone treats you like an option.

Truman isn't a Pit Bull, he is a big mouthed Labradork. The one he really takes a long time to destroy is the Galileo by Nylabone. But it is VERY heavy, so when it drops on your foot, it hurts.

I don't buy it here, but this is what it looks like:

yeah, brooks eats up kongs like they're cupcakes too, but i got my money back on that big one- no way i'm wasting 20 bucks on a toy it took him 20 minutes to eat! he does well with nylabones, i've never had the galileo though, i think i'll go get that! they give him diarrhea sometimes, but it keeps him occupied, so i don't worry about it too much.
