Perry only likes plastic water bottles if they're inside one of those toys that you open up and fill with the bottle. If I put a regular one down for him he looks at it like I'm trying to trick him (human things - why is she putting human things on the floor!) .

I've got a heavy chewer so for us the answer is - toys without stuffing. But special favorites include:
- skinneeez (the raccoon was his first favorite but now he's got several)
- skinneeez extreme (for really heavy chewers - harder to rip apart but Perry still manages to do so, just takes longer) - usually get the 14" ones, but right now his favorite is a 25" 3 squeaker (originally, only 1 squeaker left) crocodile.
- kong bone - the red (though be careful because once they know that you can put treats in the end, they'll keep throwing it at you so that you do!)
- Squirrels (they're really chipmunks!) in the log. He loves taking them out but he does it faster than you can put them back in. We don't play with that as much anymore because he's "killed" most of the squirrels.
- goDog toys with chew guard -mostly they're all still intact. (favorites are the flying pig, the small dinosaurs and the oppossom)
- Small Kong (had to get the black ones for heavy chewers - yes they make them in small - because he started to destroy the other one(s)
- The one puppy toy he still has that he hasn't destroyed and will still chew on occasionally is the nylabone teething ring (he destroyed the nylabone bones pretty quickly so no more of them).
- Himalayan chews
- Antlers - seems to prefer elk or moose - I usually get the splits but he has regular ones too that he'll chew on sometimes.
- Tennis ball to play fetch.
- we went through a rope toy phase but he isn't as interested in them at the moment.

They say to rotate the toys so that they don't get bored, but Perry does that naturally himself - every once in a while he'll pull out a toy he hasn't played with in a while.

At 18 months Patti still loves plastic bottles but she destroys them quickly and we have remove the cap because she chews it off. Her favorite toy at this age is playing fetch with a ball, tug of war and chewing on Antlers. She carries toys around and brings one to us when we come home, but doesn't spend a lot of time playing with them at his age. It's like picking up after a 2 year old. I find toys all over the house.
Kodi is TEN and he still is up for a fast game of "Water Bottle" at a moment's notice! But here he is as a fairly young puppy with a gallon water bottle! The bigger they are, the more noise you can make with them!!! LOL!

I have to admit that i never encouraged the water bottles - probably because my last dog loooooooved them... unfortunately she didn't seem to (want to) differentiate between empty and full bottles, so if I or my housekeeper left the storeroom open I would sometimes find a punctured bottle (or one with the lid taken off) with water all over the floor Of course, Perry wouldn't be able to lift a full 1.5liter water bottle like she could, but I guess that might have influenced the toys I gave him

Willow got this for Christmas last year and absolutely loves this toy from Zippy Paws https://zippypaws.com/product/burrow-coffeedonutz/ I wasn't sure if she would like it as she is not crazy about the log and squirrels that so many of you have. For some reason she loves this toy.

She'll be getting some other thing from Zippy Paws this coming Christmas. Don't know which one yet - too early to think about it!

Interesting. Mine have never had the slightest interest in full ones. Maybe because they don't crinkle? I can leave them on the floor and they totally ignore them.

But I can see how that would make me not want to encourage that play! LOL!

yeah it was always fun to find a lot of water over the floor, then find a flood and a half empty bottle with either the cap removed OR multiple punctures over it and yell "KELSEY!!!!!" (Signing it really since she was deaf lol!)

Yup. This is one of Zumba’s favorite toys, too.

My 1-yr-old has liked these floppy animals with no stuffing. They do have squeakers which she likes to squeak. She has some larger favorites too but these were the best when she was timy and she still favors them.
