The Ultimate Guide to Finding the Best Dog Toys For Your Dog

What Type of Dog Toy Is Best For Your Dog?

The best dog toys often depend on your dog's size, age and preferences.


Here are a few general recommendations:

  • Interactive Toys: Toys like puzzle feeders or treat-dispensing balls can stimulate your dog's mind and keep them entertained for longer periods. Generally, these types of enrichment toys are amazing for all dogs.


  • Chew Toys: For dogs that love to chew, consider durable toys like Kong or Nylabone products. Ensure they're appropriate for your dog's size and chewing strength. Bear in mind that no dog toy is indestructible, we personally find that these types of toys can be a choking hazard with plastic bits coming off, so always supervise your dog with their toys. We would recommend these toys to non-heavy chewers.


  • Plush Toys: Soft toys can be comforting for some dogs, but opt for those without small parts or a squeaker, that can be easily torn off and swallowed. Soft toys are great at all ages but not recommended for heavy chewers.


  • Rope Toys: These are excellent for playing tug-of-war and also help with dental health by cleaning your dog's teeth as they chew. Please be aware that rope toys, when chewed can fray and leave little bits of rope everywhere. Always supervise your dog with toys.


  • Balls: Most dogs love to play fetch and some of their favourite toys are balls. We would always recommend getting a larger ball size comparing with their mouth, so they can't swallow it. One of the major balls that do get swallowed by dogs are tennis balls, due to their small size. Always supervise your dog while they're playing with their ball.


  • Fleece Toys: Our homemade fleece tug toys! Perfect for tug-of-war and bonding with your dog. You can play so many different types of games with our fleece toys including fetch, tug, hide and seek, training, agility and many more. Fleece dog toys are strong, sturdy and perfect for all types of dogs and puppies as they come in different sizes and shapes. They are a much safer and longer lasting option for dog toys, as they don't fray or have any dangerous parts in them like plastic toys do. They are also a thicker fabric compared to rope toys.


Always supervise your dog when introducing a new toy to ensure it's safe and monitor for any signs of wear or damage.
