Smile Toys!

I figured I'd stick this in the exercise-related forum since a lot of toys are for exercise lol...

What toys do you prefer for your dogs (or do your dogs prefer)?

I'm partial to the Buster Cube since it's interactive and makes my dog work for her meals. My dog LOVES soft (canvas or nylon) frisbees and tennis balls! She also loves the rope tug toy.

Tennis balls, she has a squeaky moose that she had since she was a puppy, we just got some new frisbees, it takes her a bit to figure out how to pick them up....lol and I just got her a new rope that she loves!!

I want to get her a kong too, I am trying to decide which one to get her, the regular roundish one, or the kind of hexagonal thing that has the splits to help clean their teeth.

I have never heard of the Buster Cube.

Just about anything by Nylabone has been a great addition to our toy collection. Not only does our pup love them, but they are incredibly durable. She has had several different straight bones as well as one of their big, knobby teeth cleaning bones (her favorite!)

Nothing beats a good ol' tennis ball (or two!) for a good time. Ours like to chew on one ball while playing "soccer" with the other.

The 2 English Springers I grew-up with preferred vinyl squeak toys. Kyle's favorite was a hamburger squeak toy, and his brother Kodi's favorite was a frog squeak toy. They were not big chewers, so their squeak toys lasted for years

My last Springer was a huge chewer, he destroyed vinyl squeak toys in 10-20 minutes. He liked plush squeak toys, but always disemboweled them within an hour or two. He LOVED his Kong toy, and it stood up very well during the short time I had with him (he was euthanized @ 27 months due to a seizure disorder that didn't respond to medication). After his Kong, Elton's other favorite toys were his Galileo Bone (made by Nylabone); Plaque Attacker (also Nylabone); tennis balls; and a sterilized bone a friend gave him I know now that fresh bones are actually safer though.

I long ago gave up with squeaky toys and standard dog toys - they get destroyed within minutes!

They love kongs, and nylabones, we currently have liver, bacon and chocolate flavour
But the range is fantastic - you can get grape, strawberry, vanilla, watermelon....I'm thinking of having a go myself

Oz loved to play football (soccer) until his sight went, even now he looks at our feet to see if there might be a ball miraculously appear But even if we try he careers off into a hedge, or worse still Maggie gets it and that's just the ultimate insult....

My 7 y.o. female golden has always had strong maternal instincts so she LOVES fuzzy or fleece squeaky toys.

I used to get Zoe lots of fleece squeaker toys, but she'd always destroy them. Her first toy I bought was a squeaky teddy bear that last quite awhile. Now all she has are rubber squeakies. Her favs are her football, stuffed kitty that meows instead of squeaks, and green xmas ball her pup cousin Marley gave her :P But now she really loves her kong. She even "throws" it at me when she wants it refilled lol! Also, when we're in the backyard I'll throw a tennisball, nylon frisbee, or just a stick. She doesn't always bring them back. She'll make me chase her
