Petstages' Durable Sticks chew toys are eye-catching, designed to mimic natural wooden sticks. They combine real wood with synthetic materials to stimulate pets' interest in chewing while still being safe, the company reports. Our testers found their pets liked the idea, and the chew toys proved more durable than the real thing to boot. The aesthetic appeal wasn't lost after heavy play, either. In fact, the product actually looked and smelled even more like a real stick after use. Test dogs found it easy to carry around and engaging, and reviewers loved the look both before and after use.
