Absolutely Must Have Dog Toys

Dogs absolutely love their toys and will adore you even more when you present them with new ones. There are so many different dog toys to choose from though, and finding the ones that are the best can be extremely overwhelming. Here is a brief rundown on the top dog toys and where you can find them.

Keep in mind that dogs, like their toys, come in all kinds of different shapes and sizes. A toy that a small Poodle likes to play with may not be thought of in the same light as something a Great Dane might like.

Twist ‘n Treat:

One of the more popular toys these days for dogs are the ones in which you can hide a treat inside of the rubber toy. The dogs really have to work to get their treat and will twist it and bite at it until they are finally rewarded. The dogs love it and you will love it to because it will keep your dog entertained for a very long time.

Rope Toys:

These are the cheap little (or big) ropes that you can play tug-of-war with your dogs. They make them as chew style ropes, tug ropes and shake ropes. Be sure that you buy a big enough rope for your dog. You don’t want one that is small enough where it can be chewed up and frizzled into nothing after a day’s worth of use. Generally speaking, buy a bigger rope for a bigger dog. You also want to make sure that the ropes are made with no harmful chemicals or pieces that will harm your dog.

Doggy Balls:

Oh how dogs love their balls to play with. You can get dog balls that are big enough for them to push around or ones that you can play fetch with and are small enough to fit in their mouths. Most dogs differentiate their balls from human balls by the squeaky noises they make. They love playing with them and working at them to try to get the squeaky noises out of them. This will also keep them busy for a considerable amount of time. Save yourself some money and get a pack of different balls that won’t puncture or burst.

The best thing to do is just experiment with different dog toys to see what your dog is into most. There are all kinds of toys that you can find at your local pet store. You can even search the internet to find different dog toys that you might not be able to find in your city or town.
