What toys are currently popular in your house?

I need to get some new toys- they dogs seem to have pushed every toy the very edge of their lives, and while they seem "okay" with these mostly destroyed toys, I'm not (don't want to risk choking). I'm going to get a few new ropes (they liked to tug) and a few nylabones (some are a little gross, a few are still okay). 

I like to have a mix of soft and hard/ durable toys. I'm always a fan of interactive toys, less of treat dispensing toys (except for kongs) because I don't have the set up in my current apartment to keep them apart. 

I'd like to get them something different in addition to their old standbys :)

Re: What toys are currently popular in your house?

  • Anything soft/plush at my house gets destroyed instantly. We time it usually.... the longest anything plush has lasted is 3.5 minutes. The big fans in my house are tug ropes, antlers, nylabones, the footless Good Cuz (Collins already chewed the feet off.... little green pieces of rubber all over there place...) and racket balls. They also have these cheap squeaky toys that kind of look like a Cuz in that they have feet but I got them from the halloween clearance at petco so I have no clue what they are or if they'd be available right now.

  • The squeaky kong balls are a definite favorite, as is the orbee, which doesn't squeak but is more bouncy than the kong balls (some of the orbee's popularity is because use the orbee to despense treats, though).

    The 3 squirrels in a tree toy and tuff turtle toy (just like the tree, except the dog has to rip the velcroed on shell off the back of the turtle to get at the miniature turtles inside), are the favorite interractive toys.

    Finally, the favorite pure squeeky toys are the petstages just for fun no stuffing toys.  They're literally just a squeaker (with two different sounds!) covered with soft fabric.

  • Everlasting treat ball, cuz chicken and ball, kongs
  • Wee pillow pet, babble ball and ropes.
  • We're pretty old school here -

    Dakota and Jasper are fans of the rope (we have a 6ft long rope!) tennis balls, and the stuff-able kong. We also have a squeaker ball (which only comes out when H and I say it does, it drives us NUTS) and an "unstuffed" otter thing that the dogs play tug with.

    Stuffed animals never last long here either. Before we had Jasper, Dakota had a stuffed squirrel she carried around for 3 months, slept with it, and would go get it when you asked her too. She loved it. It was the first stuffed animal she didn't tear to shreds. I think it had something to do with the outside fur.  Jasper proceeded to destroy it the first week we had him :(

    The 3 squirrels in a tree toy

    My dog LOVES that toy!  He's really a stuffed animal dog and has a lot of then that he loves to chew on that I can't count how many times I've re-sewn.  We also got him one of those stuffless foxes with the squeeker in the head and end of the tail that he loves to play with.

  • The Planet Dog Orbee ball is still  #1 around here. He started chewing the continents off, so I pulled/sliced them off with a mat knife. But he still loves it and carries it around/tosses it for himself all the time.

  • Zoey adores plush toys. She especially loves once they have a tear in them, because then she proceeds to the joy of totally destuffing them (white fluff everywhere!). Thankfully, we've learned that we can let her do this without fear, because she never eats any of the fluff.

    She has a non-stuffed Kong bear that she loves and a plush puppy that we got in the children's dept at Walmart one night (it's still got all its stuffing!).

    As for non-stuffies: her current faves are the brand new laser pointer (I have GOT to get video to post for you guys) and a couple of soft rubber squeaky balls she got for Christmas. She will squeak those things FOREVER before she gets tired of them!

    Yeah, the ears on the squirrels always are the first part to get chewed off, next the hair on the top of the squirrels' heads. Other than that she doens't really destroy them, so I don't have to resew.  They do sell replacement squirrels, which is awesome, if you dog doesn't chew on the tree trunk, too, lol.

  • The squirrels in a log come and go as far as popularity in this house. I have purchased maybe 9 replacement squirrels (they are irrepareable when they go to town on them), and we are back down to 3, so they get some use! They never play with it when I'm home, but I do put the squirrels back in the log each morning and they are scattered by the time I get home, so someone is playing with it! I'll have to try the turtle one. And we've had the skeenz fox before, I'll get a few more of those.

    I just went a bought a few sort of cheapie toys- this cute lion with various squeakers seems to be the most popular toy of the hour, because in addition to playing tug with it, they already ripped the stomach open and took out the squeaker. 45 whole minutes and the lion still has a face! I feel like this is a new record!

  • Too cute!  It's so much fun to give them new toys.  :)  Glad the girls are having fun.

  • My dogs love those animal toys with bottles inside and the Dexter the Elephant ball. They also like treat dispensing toys but we give them in the crate or in different rooms.  Kong wubbas are also pretty good. For chewing they love antlers

    I have looked for this but can not find it. Do they still make it? Is it rubber like a Kong and indestrucltable or is is material? TIA

    It's not indestructible. It's plush material. For some reason though it has stayed intact for over a year. I'm not sure if they still make it or not...I believe they may have changed it to a different animal?
