The 6 Best Toys to Keep Your Dog Really Busy

Just like human friends, our furry friends have different personalities. You might have a high-energy dog that needs a half-hour frisbee session in the yard, or a low-key breed that just wants to squeak and snuggle a plushie. Whatever they are into, keep them happy with a new toy every few months to avoid boredom — and shoe destruction.

 

Outward Hound Hedgehogz

Check Price

We don’t quite know how to explain the draw of these hedgehogs (lovingly referred to as Hedgie in our house). Maybe it’s the grunty squeaker? Maybe it’s the soft faux fur? We’re not sure, but our pups are obsessed with these Hedgehogz.

 

 

 

Tuffy Ocean Creature Lobster

Can your pup decimate anything? Maybe go for an eight or above on the “Tuff Scale.” We love Tuffy dog toys for their craftsmanship. They use four layers of fabric (including luggage material), protective webbing around seams, and seven rows of stitching. They’re practically indestructible.

 

 

 

Outward Hound Hide-a-Squirrel Hut Toy for Dogs

Do you have a dog that likes to take things out of other things — aka destuff every toy you give them? Then this squirrel hut is perfect. They can take things out of something bigger and feel like they accomplished something. We take this special toy away when things start getting rough and hide it away for a later surprise.

 

Bionic Urban Stick

Any veterinarian will tell you that playing fetch with sticks is bad, since chewing on them can damage their teeth. Got a stick chewer? We feel your pain.
Give your pup a safe, splinter-free, stick-like toy that can be used for fetch, tug, chewing, and can be stuffed with peanut butter for a yummy treat and then tossed in the dishwasher. And it floats! Best. Stick. Ever.
