Let’s face it. Bichon Frise dogs are cute little sweethearts that look delicate and charming, but some Bichons can also be ferocious chewers!

While it might seem impossible that indestructible dog toys exist, Kong dog toys come very close. They have a very rugged construction that withstands heavy chewing.
