Top 6 Dog Toys

Posted by: Mira Roberts

Your pet loves to run and play almost as much as you, and keeping your pet active, healthy and happy is your priority. We're pet owners too, and we know how important it is to give your pet the lifestyle he needs, including all the running, fetching, playing, chewing and snuggling possible.

Several times a year, it's a good idea to go through your dog's toys and freshen up his stash to keep him excited, entertained and ready to get out and play. Whether it's buying new chew toys (because, let's face it, these things can get gross) or picking up ball launchers or glow in the dark balls, refreshing your dog's arsenal of play things will keep you both laughing and having fun together. After all, your dog is your companion, your family and so much more, so reward him for being awesome (and being yours!).

If you're tired of wandering your nearest pet store for inspiration, or simply looking for innovative, new toys to excite your pup, you're in good luck. We've chosen 6 dog toys that are fun to use (glow in the dark frisbees!), and are guaranteed to satisfied your dog's need to run, fetch, chew and play. Score! 

  1. Lambchop 6 Inch Plush Squeaky Dog Toy. Soft, squeaky and perfect for dogs of all sizes, these plush toys are a perfect chew toy for your dog(s), and since they come in a pack of 3, you can replace easily when they become saliva-encased.
  2. Planet Dog Orbee Tuff Cosmos. This 4 inch ball is an excellent ball for dogs who like to fetch. It glows in the dark, so your pup can chase it day or night, and the size is perfect for most jaws.
  3. Skinnesez Stuffing Free Dog Toys. Squeaky, plush and without all of the cumbersome and messy stuffing, these toys are ideal for dogs who need to pounce. Extra long, extra flappy and easy to carry around by mouth, your dog will love chewing on these, and you'll love not cleaning up stuffing in every room!
  4. Doskocil Chuckit Ball Launchers. Have a ball-driven dog? These ergonomically designed chuckits will allow you to keep him in chase without exhausting your arm. You'll also avoid having to continually touch the slimy saliva-infused balls with each new throw. Win-win!
  5. Hyper Pet Hyper Squawker Interactive Dog Toy. Excite your dog while she chews her heart out with this squawking, interactive dog chew toy. The multi textured design makes for great chewing, and the wacky sounds will keep your dog excited and engaged.
  6. West Paw Zogoflex Flying Dog Disc. Frisbee fetch with your dog just got elevated to new heights (literally). This floatable, glow in the dark frisbee is high flying and designed to be soft and gentle on your pet's mouth.
