Whats your dogs favorite toy?
1 Attachment(s)
I want to get Chief some new toys and I am curious as to what your dogs favorite toys are. I am more interesting in more of interactive toys not a tennis ball or jolly ball. Chief would like the jolly ball and chief like the tennis ball on a rope playing tug with it.

So far Chiefs favorite toy is the everlasting treat ball. The treat will last a few days. I recently found out that you can put the treat in upside down and it make it more of a challenge for them to get it out I will be trying that next. Yesterday I bought a Kong wobbler I had never bought it before because I didn't think he would like it nor be able to figure it out well I was Oh so wrong he absolutely adores it knocking it across the kitchen floor like crazy. He seems to get more tired from toys than actual walking. I could walk/run for 3 hours and i have and he gets tired, but not by much. I think he needs more mental exercise than phyical to tire him out.

I also have a classic Kong with he likes with peanut butter, but he gets it out quick I froze it once thinking it would last longer it did, but he wouldn't touch it I don't think he liked the cold of it.

I have thought about the iq ball, but I think he would break that he is a super strong cheer. The everlasting treat ball is amazing he has chewed it like crazy sometime just carrying it around with no treat in it and he hasn't made a scratch. The Kong wobbler has some scratches, but it's so huge he can't break it plus the slobbed makes it slippery.

So what are your dogs favorite toys and why?

Right now Joey's favorites are the Kong Squeezz ball and the Gappay ball on a string. He always has to have something in his mouth and I want something safe and sturdy.

*Kongs: They love to chew them and when it bounces, it flies everywhere... drives them crazy!

*Nylabones: I have heavy chewers. Gives us peace while watching TV or cooking/eating. It's our "quiet time" toys. No one fights over each others, no one is running around, no squeakers... they just lay down and chew.

*Stuffing-less fox and raccoon toys (the ones that were on TV commercials.) and our stuffing-less dragon from PetSmart: They LOVE to play tug with these! They also love the squeaker in them. It's also their "cuddle" toys.

*and this thing.... definitely takes the top for mine:

Treat Dispensing Chew Ball | Starmark

They can chew it, fetch it, play in water with it, go crazy with trying to get treats from it... etc. This toy is the best! My dogs all play with it for hours. I also love it, because it never stinks (always smells like vanilla) and it cleans easily. We all love this one!

This house wouldn't stay sane without these toys. :D

Cuz's....not so much the favorite, but the toy that they will play with and not be harmed or the toy destroyed. Karlo's favorites are the teaserball, bestball, eggball and jollyball but he wears down his teeth and tears up his muzzle when he plays with them so they are limited.
For training , ball on string, and synthetic two handle tugs.
I bought the bestball at elite

Any cuz toy. If it doesnt squeak then Lucky is not very interested. Unless it can be thrown.I think we are going to try the treat dispensing chew ball.

If it were up to me, anyone selling squeak toys would be locked up:)
