The most durable type of dog toys is the rubber dog toy. They are nearly indestructible. Also, they include the famous Kong toy.

SOURCE: I have a Yorkshire Terrier and want to know what the best type of toy is for my dog.

Most small dogs are very active and enjoy getting exercise; so as the owner you should get your dog some toys that will keep them running around and interested. Look for squeaky toys (if the noise wont bother you too much), chew toys, ropes and balls.

HOW TO STUFF A KONG DOG TOY AND WHAT TO STUFF IT WITH


Kong toys are one of the top selling brands of dog toys. They are durable and safe. I have 4 dogs and they all love playing with their stuffed Kong toys.


How to stuff a Kong toy:


  • Try squeezing the toy from the side so that the opening becomes oval-shaped, thus making it easier to get the stuffing inside
  • If the filling is more of a liquid, try mixing the ingredients in a Ziploc bag and trimming the corner allowing you to "pipe" the filling into the toys' opening.
  • To keep liquid stuffing from running out, try blocking the bottom of the hole with a solid piece of food. This will also help keep your dog occupied for a longer period of time.
  • Try lining the sides of the toy with something like honey or peanut butter and place it in the freezer.





I will attach a link here of a great instructional video that will further help you in learning how to stuff your Kong toy.

In regards to the types of stuffing, there are endless amounts of items you can choose from. One of the more popular items is peanut butter; however I try not to use it too often as it can be quite fatty for dogs.


Here is a list of some other items I like to use:

Honey

Mashed bananas

Dog biscuits

Cream cheese/cottage cheese


The following site will provide you with several recipes that your dog will love as well as a few more stuffing tips.

TIPS ON BUYING DURABLE AND SAFE TOYS FOR YOUR DOG


There are hundreds of varieties of dog toys available for purchase and although many of them look cute and fun, they may not be safe for your dog. I am going to give you a few tips that will help ensure your dogs safety in regards to the types of toys you buy for him/her.


First and foremost, choose toys made for dogs. Sometimes people are drawn to toys sold for cats, hamsters or even children. These may be harmful to your dog. Make sure to buy pet specific toys from a well-known manufacturer of dog toys.


Look for toys made from either hard rubber or nylon. These materials are very safe for your dog and double as great teething tools. Here are a few examples of well manufactured dog toys -

Consider the size of your dog in regards to the size of the toy. Large dogs should not be given small toys. Your dog could accidentally swallow it and choke.


Some of the things to avoid when selecting a dog toy are: ribbons, bells or pieces of plastic. These small embellishments are often the first thing your dog will try to remove and will most likely ingest.

Features of dog toys you should look for


When buying a toy for your dog, there are different features you should look for:
Size of the toy- make sure the of the toy is designed for your dog's . Don't buy a toy too small for your dog because then it can swallow it.
Safety of the toy- dog toys have to be safe. Last thing you want is a fun experience turning into a dangerous experience. Before buying your dog a new boy, consult with the vet and read about the toy online to get more information.
Durability- Unless you're planning to switch up your dog toys every few days, you want toys that will last for a long time or at least until the dog will get bored from it.
Cleaning of the toy- some toys are easier to clean than other. For example, nylon and rubber toys are very easy to clean and can also be thrown into the dishwasher. On the other hand, stuffed animal toys don't always survive the washing machine and can get destroyed if they are made from low quality materials.

Is there anything I need to avoid when buying my dog some toys?


Yes, there are quite a few things to take into consideration when buying your dog some new toys. Dogs can sometimes chew through their toys and ingest pieces that break off. Pieces of string and fabric can come loose and be easily ingested. Look for a toy that is durable, easy to handle, and safe. You should also try to avoid toys that are so small they can be swallowed.

My dog is an aggressive chewer and destroys all the toys we buy


Several claim to be indestructible, but my dog finished them in a day. The bottom line is that dog's chew out of boredom or anxiety. Exercise your dog more rigorously and/or more often, and you should see improvement. If your dog can't hold his/her eyes opened from exhaustion; happy, healthy, and can't chew.

Also, try a horse toy from Tractor Supply or another farm supply chain. They are heavy, durable, and hard to get your mouth around; my GSD loves them. Good Luck!!

Are plush toys safe to give to your dog?


Dogs love stuffed animals to play with; the problem is that they tend to rip them to shreds. If you do want to give your pet a stuffed animal you should ensure that they are particularly made for dogs. This gives you the peace of mind that the toy will be durable and that it contains no small parts that can be ingested.
