Best Fetch Dog Toy
Best Ball For Heavy Chewers
We adopted a Border Collie/GSD mix who had been surrendered a few times in her brief 11 months. One of her anxious behaviors is serious chewing. She devours tennis balls (even the Kong ones), destroys ropes (she even unties the knots first, but she *is* a Border Collie), and will perform an oral autopsy on anything with a squeaker. Most rubber toys quickly succumb to her ministrations. These ChuckIt! balls have been the only throw toy to not only survive, but to keep her happy and occupied. 10/10 we will absolutely buy more of these, but chances are good that if we do it'll be because she's lost them and not because she tore them apart.
Chuck it Balls
Purchased both medium and small sizes Our neighbors have them and they keep ending up over the fence and our dogs wanted to play with them too. They are very well made
Their new favorite playtime toys!
Our dogs are heavy chewers, but they also like to play fetch. I got the two pack because they also like to argue over who gets which toy, so this way each dog gets one. As soon as I opened the pack, they were literally occupied for HOURS. Most toys and balls do not last but a few minutes, they are usually shredded right away. These are incredibly durable, easy to throw, and if your dog is a spitter like mine, they are easy to clean as well!
Best Dog Plush Toy
great for an aggressive chewer
My dog loves this moose. This has lasted a long time for him. Usually he rips through stuffed animals pretty quickly but with this he looks at these animals made by Kong and just uses these as fetch and throw animals or just has it in his mouth. We’ve bought a couple because they get wet in his mouth and tend to stink. But that’s his fault and not the company. It is worth the try to see if your dog likes it
Furry funny fun
Our dog Meggie is a big 90 lb. Doodle. Most big dogs we've had like big toys buy Meggie likes the little ones that she treats like her babies?! She will rough house a little with them but mostly she carries them and lays with them.
A really tough moose
I finally found a stuffed toy he hasn't chewed apart in the first 5 minutes. He has tried to chew the ears and antlers off but has been unsuccessful. There's not even a tear in it. I highly recommend this for aggressive chewers
Best Dog Puzzle Toy
Good for cats too
This has been great for my 4.5 year old cat who is very mischievous and active. I was worried she wouldn't take to it but after seeing me put her treats in she was determined to get them out. The best is that if I don't fill all the areas she will first only open the ones with treats but eventually come back and open everything else just to be sure she hasn't missed anything
Love the Brick Puzzle
This is a favorite for 2 of my cats that love puzzle toys and kibble as treats. I put Cat Man Doo chicken treats on the bottom under the red sliders and it takes some work to get to those good treats. I also like that the red container lids come off/on.
I have a three and a half month old Doberman and she needed something a little bit more challenging. She did figure out this puzzle very quickly and is now able to get all the drawers open and under about 15 minutes but it really works her mind and keeps her busy. I would definitely recommend it even for a dog that has never used a puzzle before. Since she went straight from a very basic puppy puzzle to this one, we will have to order a harder one next time.
Best Tug-of-War Toy for Dogs
This is a good distraction during quiet time when Loki isn't trying to throw it around. He has managed to tear at the strings, but they come off in little pieces, unlike most of the rope-style toys.
Cotton rope with bones
Both of my strong teeth dog chewers like this product. I have repurchased this item. Dogs may eventually chew the rope away, but they still enjoy chewing on the bones. I would recommend this product.
Both of our dogs love this toy, I may have to buy another because there is a lot of whining while waiting your turn.
Best Dog Chew Toy
I have never had a dog love a Kong before. They are stuffy fetch toys or ball dogs all the way. The puppy came with a baby Kong. He outgrew the baby Kong (Choking Hazard) so with trepidation I upgraded him. Still his favorite and nobody else takes it from him. I guess they either love it or hate it.
Perfect with a Yak
This is for a 95lb Gs/Lab Teddy. I stumbled into finding the perfect us for the KONG. Holding the large Yaks. Pictures are worth a 1000 words
My dogs are big chewers and they really like this Kong toy. I insert treats with a little bit of peanut butter and it keeps them busy.
Best Treat-Dispensing Dog Toy
Buy this ball
Purchased in December and it's still his favorite toy 3 months later. He goes through toys very quickly. New bones weekly, new jumbo plushies monthly after many stitches. He loves to chew and play. The ball is solid. We use it for fetch and as a fun treat dispenser. It still smells nice, which is odd but it does. It is actually pretty easy to clean. I will say I removed two of the little pieces at the entrance. Each side has four where you put the treats in. I removed two to make it easier for him. He has learned how to keep the ball from rolling under the couch and bed. He will nudge it all over the house to get his treats out....
Approved by a really touch chewer
This ball holds kibble dog food and my Lab, who destroys most indestructible/heavy chewer toys, plays with this, figured out how to get food out of it and is entertained for at least an hour. I highly recommend this item for all dogs, and approve it for my tough chewer. He also loves to play fetch with it. Great purchase!
Keeps him busy!!
Our dog loves this one! He has no problem playing with the ball himself. It's bigger, and more fun for him.
Best Puppy Toy
Bigger than expected
Product itself seems to be a great product but we didn't get to use it, as it was bigger than expected for our tiny 5lb chihuahua. They were bigger than her head.. So It's just too big for her mouth. Not the products fault, we are just doing trial and error to find toys for our new doggie.
Our 4 month old basset mix LOVES this toy! It has held up well - though granted we have only had it a week. But she is an aggressive chewer!
Favorite Chew Toy
This is still my 1 1/2 year old poodles favorite toy. She has been chewing on it for 18 months. It is still holding up but looks a lil old so I am buying a new one.
Best Hide-and-Seek Dog Toy
Dog loves these toys
My dog loves these hide and seek toys! I have purchased 3 others. They do not stand up to chewing but they are very fun otherwise
My dog is in LOVE
My dog absolutely goes crazy over Hide and Seek toys. The guacamole set is definitely one of her favorites. I usually find the avocado, chip and lime in our bed.
Who doesn't love guac?
My dog loves toys where he has to pull something out of a larger toy, so this toy was perfect
Best Dog Squeaky Toys
Great squeaky toys
My dog loves the squeaky toys. Not only does she play with it by herself. She brings it to me and wants me to squeak it with her. We play squeaky music together, lol.
Multi-packs are great!
Every year I prepare a big box of toys and treats for fur babies of all types and ages to be donated to my local no-kill shelter. Multi-packs are great because they help insure that more than one fur baby can get a toy of their own!
Great dog toy
Our puppy loved the toy (which we gave he just 1 for now). She just turned 1 and loves that the toy has three squeakers.
Best Toy for Large Dogs
WELL MADE FOR MY DOG
Like the material used on this Kong Frisbee. While hardy, it is pliable so it doesn't smack into your dogs face and cause pain. Our Collie enjoys it as well as he tends to chew it (he is still a puppy and they will).
Love this flyer!
This is our third time to buy this same flyer. We love it and so does our dog. If we took better care of it, we probably would have only had to buy one, lol. We keep it outside and it goes through the elements and after a while gets sort of grungy, the kind that won't come off with cleaning. This was one of our puppy's very first toys and she is now 6 years old. Not too bad getting one every 2 years on average. Works great and has been so far indestructible by our 50 lb pit bull mix, though we don't let her sit around and chew on it.
Best Frisbee Ever
My dog loves playing with his Frisbee. This product is very strong quality, not worried if my dog tries to chew it. It's soft strong rubber that earned its name with the maker KKong.Highly recommend this product.
Best Toy for Tough Chewers
Holy not a stick
Babie have tons of sticks to chew from but this "not a real stick" is the 2nd most love toy in the basket... with lamb chop products at number 1 until poor chop has been destroyed. "Not stick" has survival skills over the poor lamb hands down.
Great Chew Toy
My dog Bandit is a fan of Dogwood toy. He is a Shih Tzu/Maltese mix and the small size toy is perfect for him and the toy lasts several weeks before I need to replace the toy. I always dispose of the toy when it has been chewed down to a size that Bandit could possibly swallow, as I do not want to have my dog choke.
love love love
My dogs love to chew the sticks outside so I thought I buy them ones they can chew inside. I got the medium size for my pittie and the small for my terrier. They absolutely love these wanna-be sticks.
