What are the best dog toys? This is a common question that dog lovers will ask themselves, including when they get a new puppy. Most dog owners want to provide their fluffy companion animal with good quality, fun toys that are safe and that they will enjoy to play with. However the answer to the question is really… it depends!
In our experience, give a dog that enjoys fun and playing any high quality toy and he is likely to be pleased with it. But some toys will have the edge on others for particular dogs, depending on their likes and preferences. Below we run through 5 of the best dog toys for your dog… let us know which one you think your precious pooch would love best!
1. Best Dog Toys: Burrow Toys
Burrow Toys really are a great all rounder for most dogs. They’re suitable for all ages: Burrow toys are suitable for puppies and adult dogs alike. They can help with teething in puppies and provide mental stimulation for older dogs.
In particular, these might be the best dog toys for your pooch if they are very intelligent or have a lot of energy, as they provide enrichment and mental stimulation as the dog has to use its brain to work out how to remove the small squeaky toys from the bigger toy. Additional satisfaction can be gained from adding either some treats or your dog’s daily kibble inside the burrow toy, engaging their sense of scent as well.
