Dog toys are an important part of your pup’s development that also provides an outlet to release physical and mental energy. Walking into a pet store or searching online for dog toys can be overwhelming with options but rather than falling into the trap of buying lots of toys that will end up collecting dust, consider your dog’s size, breed, playing, and chewing habits to determine what’s right for them. Check out our guide to some common types of dog toys:

1. Rope toys

Many dogs love a good rope toy! They’re a versatile option for playing fetch, tug-of-war, or simply chewing on. These braided rope toys come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and configurations and are especially great for aggressive chewers – but always supervise your pup and throw the rope toy away once the threads start to unravel. Ingesting loose threads can cause gastrointestinal issues. Take a look at our six-pack dog rope toy set!

2. Squeaky toys

Non-plush squeaky toys are another good option to consider for chewers as they are generally made from rubber or plastic though durability does vary. Look for a hard rubber toy if you know your dog has the ability to easily chew a hole in almost any toy. Light plastic or rubber squeaky toys are good for moderate chewers and are generally less expensive but unfortunately, they tend to not last as long.

3. Plush toys

Plush toys are another popular toy for pups that come in a variety of types including ones that are stuffed and have a squeaker while others are designed without stuffing which is perfect for the dogs that like to tear apart soft toys like prey. If that sounds like your pooch, opt for a plush toy with no stuffing like our new plush toy set that includes a squeaky duck, skunk, and wolf plus bonus gifts!


4. Balls

A ball is a must for any dog who loves to run and play fetch. From classic tennis balls to flashy balls that light up when you throw them, you’re sure to find something to appease your pal. When you purchase our plush toy set, we’ll include a bonus rubber bouncy ball that’s durable and perfect for the aggressive chewer. Whatever kind of ball you get your best buddy, ensure it is an appropriate size and not too small for them to swallow.

5. Treat Dispensing Toys

Enhance the way you give treats with fun and mentally stimulating treat-dispensing toys. These toys can provide hours of fun for your buddy who will need to think about how to crack the case of the uneaten treat. Treat dispensing toys come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and types to suit every type of pup. They also generally come in hard plastic or rubber so they are a great option for all dogs, especially your aggressive chewer.
