Five Dog Toys That Fido Can't Live Without

If you are a pet owner that needs a shopping cart inside a pet store, then we can help. The desire to fill your cart with every chew toy, oversized bone and interactive bouncy ball can leave your wallet hurting and your dog over stimulated. When we got our first dog, we were "trying out" a new chew toy to see what would get his tail wagging. Unfortunately, it got to the point where there were so many toys in the house that he completely ignored most of them and went on to chew more shoes.

According to pet experts (, it's not necessary to spoil your pooch with an unlimited amount of toys. Most dogs only play with one or two toys for a few weeks until they destroy them or become bored.

What's The Best Type of Toy For My Dog

"Dogs and philosophers do the greatest good and get the fewest rewards," said Diogenes.
This is very true. They greet you every day with love, affection and a kiss on the cheek. A dog is a companion that would do anything for you and guards your home every minute. Plus, a dog truly is man's best friend.

However, besides some nice lengthy walks and the occasional treat, many dogs don't get dog toys that they really enjoy. Many pet owners fail to realize that for dogs to really take pleasure in their toy, they must get a toy that was tailored for their personality trait.

Retrievers, for instance, are dogs that really benefit from toys that were designed after the age-old game of fetch. Flying discs are one of the best toys for these dogs.

On the other hand, mischievous dogs that like to burrow, explore and enjoy being rewarded may do better with an interactive dog toy.

Five Fun Toys For Dogs

Since there are so many dog toys on the market, we thought it would be a good idea to break down some popular products. It's not uncommon for pet owners to buy one of each, which can really hurt when you see your credit card bill. However, if you take some time to learn your dog's personality, you should be able to find the perfect toy from these Top Five:

  • Hyper Ball Launcher: With all the dog toys on the market, it's crazy to think that a tennis ball is still the most popular plaything for dogs. Unfortunately, throwing a tennis ball for hours on end can wear out your arm, as well as become a bit boring. Now, the Hyper Launcher combines the fun of a slingshot with fetch. This mechanism can launch balls more than 200ft with the flick of a wrist!

  • ORKA Stick: Everyone knows that dogs love rope toys. Whether you want to play tug of war or just give them a new chew toy, there are few designs that are as perfect as a rope with a few knots in it. Now, your dog can prevent tooth and gum disease while they chew. The cotton rope removes tarter while the texture massages their gums.

  • Everlasting Bento Ball: Bigger dogs have a bigger bite, unfortunately this means that they go thru toys that much faster. Now your dog can spend hours chewing on a toy (which is completely free of latex, vinyl and other hazardous materials). The half ball can be filled with treats, too, which will entice your pooch even more.

As you can see, Dog Toys are all a bit different from each other. Yet, so are the dogs that use them. Whether you have a chewer or a fetcher, you can find the perfect toy for your pooch.
