Which Dog Toys Are the Best?
The best dog toy for your furry friend depends on his play style, activity level, and size. We offer only high-quality products hand-picked by dog people for dogs and their people. Dogs who prefer to play alone may enjoy durable chew toys best. Natural rope and braided dog toys give your companion a long-lasting and safe way to satisfy his need to chew. For the dog who enjoys a classic round of fetch, you’ll find durable toys for tireless games of lobbing and retrieving—in the water or in your backyard. If he prefers tug-of-war, our natural rope tug toys can withstand hours of rigorous play. Choose an alluring squeaky toy to occupy the dog with an insatiable prey drive or a plush toy for your cuddler.
Why Do Dogs Need Toys?
Dogs need toys for the same reason people need entertainment. Toys provide comfort as well as physical and mental stimulation for dogs. Keep him busy when you must leave your dog home alone, give him plenty of exercise when you play together, and satisfy his instincts to chew with rugged toys.
How to Choose Safe Dog Toys
When choosing dog toys, avoid sharp edges, loose strings, small plastic pieces, or toys that are too small or may break easily. Dispose of dog toys when they begin to show wear, as pieces may break off and become a choking hazard or cause an intestinal blockage. While toys made for children must meet certain safety standards, they are not tested against a dog’s chewing habits or sharp teeth, so they’re not an ideal option for our furry friends. For destructive players, seek out heavy-duty, indestructible toys designed to stand up to chewing and tearing. Examine your dog’s toys regularly to ensure they’re in good condition, and dispose of toys that don’t pass inspection.
Why Do Dogs Like Squeaky Toys?
Research shows dogs prefer toys that make a noise or can be torn apart. Since most squeaky toys are plush, they earn double points for being noisy and easily ripped to shreds. Most of us with squeaky toy-loving dogs have witnessed how our canine pals go straight for the squeaker (repeatedly). Our animal squeaky toys include internal reinforced seams and durable construction to provide a tougher toy for long hours of fun.
How to Clean Dog Toys
Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning dog toys. In general, plush, stuffing-filled dog toys, squeaker toys, and rope toys in good condition may be cleaned in the washing machine. Tie them inside a pillowcase or zip them inside a washing machine bag and clean them on a cold water cycle. To prevent mildew, dry toys on low heat or hang them until dry.
When cleaning hard plastic or nylon dog toys, avoid harsh detergents and high heat that may break down the materials. Instead, soak hard dog toys in a solution of one part vinegar and one part water, wash with a mild detergent, and allow them to air dry. If necessary, soak non-porous dog toys in diluted bleach to disinfect them, using a bleach-to-water ratio of 1:32. Rinse bleached toys thoroughly before giving them back to your dog.
